Review: Broken Knight by LJ Shen

Knight Cole and Luna Rexroth have been best friends for their entire lives and he couldn’t be more in love with her but somehow they end up as enemies. Life gets complicated, especially for these two. Knight has addiction issues and a sick mom, while Luna has spent most of her life completely mute due to her mother’s abuse as a toddler. They were each other’s everything, until it all fell apart and now all they do is hurt each other, accidentally and on purpose.

There are moments of HEA where it all falls apart around them, but ultimately this is a story about loss and survival. It’s a sad story with a bittersweet ending and it’s not one of my favorites. It’s well written and the characters are magnificent but I don’t like sad stories so this will just never be high on my list. It’s an excellent book in every way but just doesn’t fit my personal preferences. It’s a must-read for fans of the world of Todos Santos and all that it entails. The Hunter, the first book in the Boston Belles series, also offers an epilogue of sorts for both Knight and Luna that would be a spoiler if you haven’t already read Broken Knight and it’s a happy glimpse into the future, which is great.

Broken Knight by LJ Shen All Saints High book 2

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.
Sweet.
Caring.
Charitable.
Quiet.
Fake.
Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.
Who taught her how to laugh.
To live.
To love.

Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.
Gorgeous.
Athletic.
Rugged.
Popular.
Liar.
This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.
But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.
When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.
Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.
