Vaughn Spencer was the brooding jerk in the background of the other books in this series, so I hadn’t given him much thought until his book came along but, wow. There’s so much more to Vaughn than I imagined. LJ Shen really brings this character to life. He’s tortured and vengeful, passionate and dark, I can’t get enough Vaughn. He seems to spend his life lashing out at everyone around him but now we know why he’s so bitter and angry at the world.
Lenny is one of my favorite heroines. She’s quirky and effervescent without trying to be and she’s so talented. Creativity just oozes from her in every aspect of her being. It’s not limited to her art, it drips from her pores but nowhere is it more exciting than when she wants to hurt Vaughn and make him jealous. I love Lenny and would like to see her pop up again in the future, much like we see Luna and Knight in The Hunter from Shen’s Boston Belles series.
Their story is dark but oh so hot, Lenny and Vaughn are fire. There are some great twists here that add suspense. You might think you know where this story is going, but I guarantee there are more layers to it that you didn’t anticipate, in every aspect of the plot. This is one of my favorite books because I just love everything about it: the characters, their struggles, the world LJ Shen has created – not just in Todos Santos, but beyond. This is a story you’ll re-read more than once, it’s just that good.

By LJ Shen
All Saints High book 3
They call him an angry god.
To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.
His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.
All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.
Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.
I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.
But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.
A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.
They say this place is haunted, and it is.
Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.
Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.
