Series: Sinners of Saint #1
Author: L.J. Shen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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 was vicious. It was too bad that my hate for him was dipped in a thin shell of something that felt like love. But I promised myself I’d crack it, break it, and unleash pure hatred in its place before he got me. He, I promised myself, will never break me.”
5 Cherry Blossoms Stars! This book put me through the wringer of emotions… and I loved every minute of it!
Vicious and Emilia meet as children when her parents start working for Vicious’ dad. Her, her sister and parents live on a house directly on the same property as Vicious’ house and well let’s just say Vicious and Emilia have a love/hate relationship. Their story spans over a good 10 year period with flashbacks showing you how their relationship took a turn for the worse. While I hated Vicious for a good part of the book, my heart started warming up for him once I learned why he was the way he was. Trust me his nickname Vicious, suits him well. He torments Emilia every chance he gets with no regards to her feelings. His nickname for her? The Help, ya you see where that’s going. Emilia, poor Emilia, while she hates him with every fiber of her being, she can’t help but love him and even when he breaks her, she still can’t let him go.
This book was brilliant… I kept reading, simply because I needed to know what was going to happen…. And well Vicious totally stole my heart! I love a good book with redemption. Vicious has stolen my heart and I don’t care who knows it!
