How do I write up a review that does justice to this book? Answer is, I can't!!

‘SCANDALOUS:’ is the third book within the ‘Sinner of Saint’ series by L.J. Shen. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ Edie is eighteen, Trent is thirty-three. Their story is not perfect. 

The first time Trent had noticed Edie Van Der Zee was at a barbecue celebrating Dean’s son’s birthday, the second time he’d laid eyes on her was when he caught her doing a five fingered discount at the promenade where the rich frequented, now she’s right under his nose working at Fiscal Heights Holdings. 

Edie was lost and floundering through life though she had been accepted to five universities out of state, but nothing in this world would make her attend, one obvious reason is her surfing, it fed her soul and gave her the oxygen to breathe, but the main reason was that the only person she truly cared about was right here in California and nothing could make her move away. Now her father has told her she has to come and work in his company. 

There is no love lost between Edie and her father, a ruthless, heartless man that isn’t beyond manipulating Edie to do his dirty work, with a high cost to her if she doesn’t pull through. 

Where Edie is concerned things don’t add up, but only someone with an eye for detail when it came to struggling to make ends meet would see all the signs, and Trent sees all those signs in colour. And he’s going to get to the bottom of it.

Trent Rexroth was the silent hunter who would circle you for hours, striking when you least expected it, A desolate panther, wild, quiet and slick.

Trent Rexroth is a hard, cold and calculated man raising his daughter Luna single handedly, they call him the mute for a reason, he barely spoke, a self made rich man rising up from the gutter to make a name for himself in Todos Santos, he worked hard for what he had and nothing and nobody was going to get in his way. 

Life was not a game of chess. Life was fucking Jenga. You tried winging through it, hoping it wouldn’t fall down in spectacular fashion and bury you. 

This book took me brutally captive and did not let me go, it threw everything that I could've hoped for, and more, the angst, the emotional rollercoaster of a clusterfuck ride was had, god the feels they just kept coming and coming, they never stopped, this series, this author, just gets better and better!! 

You can't compare this series to anything else, you can't compare the characters stories to any other, this author is beyond talented!! Everything I love, I crave, I seek, I need, I want all boxes were ticked!! Trent is beyond my favourite, the silent mute that had so much to say. 

This book was the best of the best!! I don't think L.J. Shen could've found a better character to match Trent, Edie was his equal in every way where it mattered, she challenged him where he needed to be challenged. She was perfectly imperfect for him.

I don't kiss. I fucking hate it. I don't do relationships. One last warning. I fuck rough. Deepthroating is a requirement, not an option 

Trent made me swoon like a teenager, beyond alpha, a dirty sexual man who had the woman he bedded begging for mercy. But only one was his match, Edie, the teenager that looked like a goddess but had the sting of a bee, these two were heartless in their pursuit of the most tantalizing sexual chemistry between the sheets. 

If you want to be strong - be 

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.
