Release date: December 27th, 2016

Book Description:


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.

Vicious a complete standalone and a part of the Sinners of Saint series.

Vicious was AMAZING! From the moment I started to read, I was completely unable to put it down. The characters are absolutely fantastic. They each have their own personalities, which really brings them to life on the pages.

Even as the story changed, so did the characters. Which was lovely to read because honestly…when crap happens in life who doesn’t change?? They had true reactions and that was awesome! The author did an incredible job of making this book very easy to become connected with.

The speed was decent too, it flowed very nicely and because of that, I was able to become emotionally attached to everything that was occurring.

Overall, this was a fantastic read and I am going to be reading more from L.J. Shen in the future.
