I Liked It!
Ever since Vicious released, I’ve been in love with the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen, and each of the hothole’s has captured my heart in a different way, so when it was time for Trent’s book I was excited to see what ride he was going to take us on.
Trent has always been the quiet one in the group, the sort of outcast. If you’ve read the series, you know his backstory, but don’t worry, you can definitely read this book without having read the others, but why would you want too? This series is AMAZING! A single dad, a rags to riches story, and a complete jerk, just like the rest of his friends. With him being the only of the four who actually truly cares about the company, but the one their new business partner wants out, his life is a mess, and his daughter who is a mute, he’s truly trying to make his life work. When Edie walks into his life he hates her, because she’s Jordan’s daughter, she’s young, and she gets on his last nerve. But there’s something about her that Luna clings to, and Trent can’t deny.
Edie despises her father, but she needs him to keep the only thing in life she cares about. She hates the rich, even though she’s one of them. She’s young, but she’s not reckless. I loved Edie Van Der Zee! This girl may be young, but she definitely had her crap together, and I adored her character. The way she cared for Theo, who most of the book we didn’t know who or what Theo was, the way she continued to care for her mother, and the way she was torn about what to do with Trent, made me love her character so much. When Jordan (her dad) puts her in a horrible situation I wanted to kill him! I knew this little thief and the mute were going to have an interesting and fun time together.
These two say they hate each other, and what they have is definitely an interesting relationship, but no one can deny the bond that Edie has with Luna, and the chemistry that Edie and Trent have is undeniable, which makes for one heck of a story. So many secrets, and lies are going on in this story, but throughout it, we learn how deep these two characters really are and it makes you fall even further in love with both of them. We learn so much about both of them, and why they are the way they are. You want to hate Trent, you want to scream at Edie for continuing to follow Jordan’s orders, but throughout it all you just keep rooting for the two of them to make it work and get a HEA.
Scandalous by L.J. Shen is definitely one wild ride with so many twists and turns, and your head will spin, the ride to a HEA for these two is definitely full of ups and downs and twists and turns and you will definitely wonder if they will ever truly make it work, but you’ll just need to read this amazing and gripping story to find out. Trent may not be as much of a hothole as the rest of them, but he will find a way into your heart with his jerk ways, trust me!
