VICIOUS by LJ Shen Book Review & Blog Tour

B L U R B:


They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.
The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares.
He is a brilliant lawyer.
A skilled criminal.
A beautiful liar.
A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.
Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.


She is a starving artist.
Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom.
Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down.
She paid the price.
Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate.
That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t.
So she hates me. Big fucking deal.

She better get used to me.


M Y  R E V I E W:
I loved every single thing about this book. I loved meeting Vicious & Emilia when they were in high school. Vicious is so FASCINATING right from the start we want to know so much more about him, what makes him tick, what’s his freaking deal anyway? We want to know who hurt him and went to each and every brick that formed the wall around his ice cold heart. And that’s all just in the first couple of chapters! 
And Emilia, her heart is so  big, so strong, so pure, so generous. She has so much love and compassion for her family and those around her. She is their strength, their rock. And while she doesn’t let Vicious just walk all over her, she always holds her ground and puts up a fight, he always ALWAYS finds ways to crush her, over and over again. 
This is not an easy sweet sappy read. But what it is is a REAL, INTENSE, HONEST, RAW, and EPIC love story spanning decades. Its beautiful and tragic and gut wrenching and its perfection. I absolutely LOVED IT!
