Review: Bane

Bane Bane by L.J. Shen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something about LJ Shen’s writing that is inherently captivating and I can’t help but fall victim to each and every one of her novels.

Bane, although a complete standalone within the Sinners of Saint Series, was equally as rewarding and another strongly written book. The characters were deeply flawed though circumstance and yet they fit together like the perfect pieces of a jigsaw.

Bane is a surfer with a dark and damaging reputation. Women love him and men fear him, and yet he falls deeply in love with the one girl he can’t and shouldn’t have.

Jesse is a shadow of the girl she once was and is now hiding away from everyone who has wronged her. When her stepfather enlists Bane to befriend Jesse, the duo immediately strike up and unlikely friendship. Bane struggles with his feelings for Jesse and as she reveals her story to him, his feelings only grow stronger. Not one to be told what to do, however, Bane does what Bane does best and that’s pleasing himself.

The story has highs and lows and takes readers on an emotional journey throughout the minds of two troubled youths who, despite their inner fragility, are outwardly very strong. I loved the way Bane took Jesse under his protection and I loved the way he loved her. I loved Bane - full stop!

Such a good book, such a great series, and such a tremendously talented author. Highly recommended!

“What are you doing in two weeks?”

Oh my, this series is simply sublime! I have loved every single story and each and every character but Chase is always my favourite, even if he is now broken and lost his fun-loving ways.

Poor Chase, after the heartbreak of losing Mil, he's still in pain 6 months on. The nightmares won't go away and he's living on a diet of whiskey and wine. His friends, including Trace, are powerless to help him and yet still the many mafia cogs continue to turn, with or without him.
