Description

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Sweet.

Caring.

Charitable.

Quiet.

Fake.

Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants - namely, the boy from the tree house who taught her how to curse in sign language.

Who taught her how to laugh.

To live.

To love.

Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.

Gorgeous.

Athletic.

Rugged.

Popular.

Liar.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.

But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.

When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.

Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

I was destroyed

I had so many feelings while reading this. There was points I was frustrated with the miscommunication, angry at the circumstances of the family, then at one point balling my eyes out while trying to cook my dinner. This book is a 5 stars for me because of every emotion it evoked, every tear I shed for Rosie, and everytime I wanted to smack knight. Lj shen killed it with this book. I'm so glad I finally picked it up and I cant wait to read the next one. Was this book perfect? No but it was perfect for me♡

Obsessed

Let me lead by saying, I've never written a book review.
I'm not entirely sure when I came across LJ Shen, but it started with Scandalous, then I read the remainder of the Sinners of Saint series, in the correct order.
Shen's books are highly addictive.
She takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster; I find myself angry and frustrated and sad and hopeful. At some moments I feel, "Why bother! I hate you all and you are shallow, mean, stupid, oblivious... (insert your favourite)"
I've come to realize this is what Shen does so well--something few authors of this genre can do.
She makes me feel: I rage, I mock, I choke back tears.
Broken Knight is going to be a hard book to beat.
Why?
Rosie.
Gawd, Rosie.
Baby LeBlanc.
Well, Luna and Knight too, but seriously, Rosie...
I run when I listen to Audible and I struggled to do so reading this book. My throat would close up with emotion and that's counter-intuitive to running.
I struggled through.
I am obsessed with her writing, her lack of filter in some regards, and the depth and sometimes vacuousness (it seems) of her characters.
Have you checked out her insta feeds? Fan pages? This is serious, Shen is not just churning out books, she is taking fiction to a new level, to her, and you (the reader), these characters are real. They exist: they love, hate and suffer, and we get to come along for the ride.
Ride or die.

Best Audio of 2019

This book has become a favorite and now listening to the audio I’m blown away. Jacob Morgan brings Knight Cole alive. I think it’s his best narration I’ve heard. Every nuance, sarcasm, emotion, and the internal dialogue was perfection. All the narration was so so good. Absolutely loved it!!!

Drags On and On and On and On

I love angst. Read angsty books all the time. This book has more angst than is really necessary. They are both teens so I cut them a little slack, but it got really old really fast. Their decisions made no sense most of the time. Also the woman narrator gave everyone a super posh voice. I found that off putting and it took me out of the story. Especially after reading about these women in previous books and knowing they aren’t snooty. They all spoke like the Queen of England in this narrators performance.

Just no

These two are a hot mess and that’s putting it nicely. Knight is so vindictive, mean and so full of himself I would have said bye a long time ago. Luna was a doormat that let everyone else run her life. I’m 80% through this audio and I’m done with the toddler like fit throwing and you did this so I’m going to get you back and hurt you more. Seriously wtf. I’m glad I didn’t actually pay for this audio

Alright already...

This was too drawn out! I like the next generation of hotholes but this was 11 hours of angst and too much bull! Had the story line wrapped up sooner and not been drawn out, it would have potentially been better!!

It was ok....but

I never ever write reviews but i had to with this one. It’s honestly just a story about teenagers who act like teenagers. Gets kinda annoying at times and teenage sweet at others. If I’d have known it was about kids I wouldn’t have listened to it in the first place. They should put a young adult label on this book.

Unpopular opinion...

Okay, I'm all for the drama, but this story DRAGS. The story had me hooked from the beginning, but halfway through I was beginning to get very bored and frustrated with the characters. The simple concept: two best friends who are in love with each other, but can't properly express their feelings. Knight is self-absorbed, a bully, and manipulative. Honestly, I could say the same about Luna. I am not going to root for two characters who constantly belittle one another and purposely make the other person feel pain, to fall in love. The two of them are self-destructive, and came across as unlikable. I kept waiting for something to happen for them to be better. Nope. The only thing that saved this book was the narration performance.

It’s A Long Story!

So I’m guessing everyone who reads this book loves it. For me, it started out great, then around chapter 6, Luna and Knight lost some of their appeal. She was a girl with such deep seated issues that she couldn’t speak, and he, well, he had a zillion and one issues of his own. It wasn’t horrible, it just got too wordy for me, if that makes sense (I know, it is a BOOK, after all), but 11 hours is absurd! I feel like anything written that takes over 8 hours to perform, is because the Author just likes to, “hear themselves speak” if you know what I mean. If you love flowery wordy sentences and way too much information, you’ll love this book, but better pack a lunch...

There are not enough stars!!! L.J. Shen SLAYED!

It's been a few days since I finished Broken Knight and it is now when I can feel stable enough to write a review, be focused and not ramble away. I will start by saying that this story is WELL WORTH THE HYPE!! If you are a fan of The Sinners of Saint and now the All Saints High having this story told just gives us fans an additional look into what is happening with the characters that we love and adore. When you figure that this story is about Knight and Luna you already know that it will be quite a ride. These are people that have so much going on in their lives as individuals and then add the stress of growing up and having to make decisions... on top of family drama. For every L.J. Shen story I read / listen to I feel I am going on a journey in which I give her my faith and my trust and I just hold on to the ride. This story was very emotional on every level and yet she found ways to bring in humor, banter and outstanding characters that continue to excite by adding additional layers to the story. It came a point in the story that you knew where she would go and even though it hurt, it was beautifully written and perfectly performed by Savannah Peachwood. Her chapter totally obliterated me!! And then bring in Christian Rummel reprising his role as Dean and having to listen to his POV and what he was going through just tore me open even more. I thought I had no more tears left but then the ending was poignant and the characters had so much growth that I was proud and elated for them. This is what L.J. Shen does so well and casting Jacob Morgan & CJ Bloom as the leads was a outstanding casting choice. They carried these characters with strength, conviction and passion and deserve a huge standing ovation. This is certainly a top audio for me this year. I can not even imagine what is in store for us with Angry God!! Bring it on!!

Meh

I love this author and I liked these characters. But honestly I was hoping for more intimacy. I feel like the first generation of bad boys were more bully and erotic. Sorry, but get on with it. It could’ve been a 5 hour book.

Emotional story.

This book really caught my attention with all the chatter on FB. I've only read one other book by this author. And I like her writing style and the content of which she writes. This was such an emotional story. The narrators really brought the story to life. Have your Kleenex ready for this one.
