Scandalous by LJ Shen

Publishing Date:  September 29th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what a beautiful chaos it will be.

The Hot-Holes are Back!!! I have absolutely loved reading about my favorite men in the Sinners of Saint Series. To say I was patiently waiting for Trent’s story would be a lie. I have been biting my nails, seriously stalking, refreshing constantly… Till the day Scandalous landed on my kindle. 

What a story Trent-The Mute had to tell! Not coming from money like the other Hot-Holes, Trent has earned each and every penny he has made. Living in the dream community of Todos Santos, working long hours and trying to be the best single parent to his wonderful daughter.

Edie comes from a family (if you want to call it that) of pure money…coconut water at 5 bucks a bottle is nothing… But Edie is lost…lost from trying to take care of everything for everyone at all times. When her father tells her that she needs to start working at his company, if she isn’t going to go to college… She knows her father is forcing her to do this because he wants something in return.

“I think it’s time to make some popcorn, kids. These two are going to give us the best show this town has to offer.” 

When Trent first saw Edie, that was all it took for him to know his world was about to get turned upside down once again. Falling for his business partner’s daughter…well that wasn’t planned. But what was planned is each and every step Trent makes in this story. He’s been burned before and has learned from each time… 


Yet another Alpha HotHole to scream over is here !! Trent Rexroth is coming and wait for it .....he's a master of baddassery and assholery. 
The Mute . He rarely talks and when he does, he spews disdain and contempt.
He works hard and FHH is better for him . A loyal and trusted friend to Vicious, Dean & Jamie.
And then he meets Edie Van Der Zee, daughter of a sworn enemy / partner -Jordan Van Der Zee. They are virtually at logger heads and Edie became s a pawn in their vile games. 

Jordan owned half of downtown Todos Santos— the other half belonging to Baron Spencer— and had recently announced he was considering running for mayor.

She's 18, impressionable and committed to her family. Her tiny shoulders carrying excess burden of her mother, Theo, Luna and all the time trying to find her passion, her place in the world . A beautiful tiny soul struggling in the volatile tides of this cruel ocean, that is her life. Her first love is surfing and riding the waves, ocean calls to her and she finds peace in unruly waves and angry tides.

"You’re trying to hold the entire universe on your shoulders and sprint with it to the nearest safe haven. You can’t. It’s too heavy. You’ll collapse. Ever tried to see what’ll happen if you let go?

Leigh has written Trent with love and big heart , he's an asshole but not a monster. He's Ruthless, Cold , but full of heart. 
Thrust with the excess baggage himself and learning to cope with it, he funds a kindred soul in Edie . But the gaping age chasm makes it uncomfortable and conflicting, yet the magnetic pull is formidable and very powerfull
I gravitated toward him like he was the sun. A beautiful pleasure conceived by nature that could very well kill you if you got too close. He looked at me like I was the moon. Pale and lonely and so far away.

The fact that Trent is aware of the conspiracies surrounding him and the threat of looming war on the horizon, he still is helpless against his heart. The irony isn't lost on him at all. But if you think he'll quietly roll over and die, you've underestimated the HotHole. Hes just getting warmed up !!!

You’re my Delilah, Edie, and I’m your Samson. You want to ruin me, destroy me, strip me of my power, and betray me. I should stay away from you, but I want you too fucking much. And when it’s all over, when all that’s left of us is sweaty flesh and shattered minds and torn hearts, you will remember me as the man who made you cry, and I’ll remember you as the girl I had to break to stay afloat.”

I need to mention here that Bane plays a very safe place for her to decompress at some very stress full times in Edie's life, I wish there was more of that equation. When he says - I Told you so , it damn near brought me to tears !!
I loved that MY vicious revisits. Maybe he was looking for me !!
I loved their brotherhood, their loyalty
I loved the poor overburdened Edie and the conflicted Herat of Trent , trying to make sense if it all
He's a sexy brooding alpha from the Sexy brain of Leigh . She seems to have copyrighted the Sexy as sin and savage as Vikings alpha heroes, who steal our hearts and set our collective panties on fire.
Here the seahorses kissed the tide !!!
4.5 Luna-tic stars
