Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.



The moment that this little beauty right here dropped onto my kindle I wanted to abandon all of my adult responsibilities and dive head first deep into the darkness known as Bane, but I pushed through and was rewarded with a story so intense that I wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry (in the best possible way…of course) more times than I can can’t throughout the course of this book!

L.J. Shen is hands down one of my all-time favorite authors and if you haven’t read anything from her yet then you are missing out on some extraordinary reads because oh my freaking goodness this lady right here writes the best HotHoles around. She has FOREVER ruined me for all other book boyfriends, and maybe even real men…oh gosh I think I may need to lower my expectations because there is no way any man could ever compare to the ones she writes in her books.

HOWEVER…as much as I wholeheartedly adore her men, I think that it was her leading lady aka Jesse Carter who stole the show and completely captivated my heart during this story. Although Bane might have snuck in and carved out a little spot for himself in my heart as well, but then again how could he have not?! This book couple right here might just be my favorite of 2018 so far. I mean how could they not be when the princess saves herself in this fairytale…

I 🖤 Bane + Jesse! With so many freaking obstacles standing in their way, they shouldn’t have ended up together…and yet they couldn’t be more perfect for one another. Together they bring each other out of the darkness and into the light. Their love is unconventional and one of a kind. It burns hot and isn’t afraid to burn down what ever stands in the way…

L.J. Shen thank you so much for writing this addictively captivating story and putting some of your other books on hold because after reading Scandalous I knew I wanted…no I NEEDED Bane’s story and Jesse was his perfect match!
