Publisher's Summary

Bane

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 - 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--king teeth for it.

A MONUMENTAL & SLOW-BURN TO REDEMPTION

L.J.Shen is an auto download author for me.. and, this lyrical poetical book not only highlights why, but it also cements her place as one of my favorite author too. The quick-witted, snappy dialogue, witty one liners, thought provoking raw scenes, passion-filled pleasures, heartfelt sentiments, rich multi-layered characters, seismic chemistry, simmering sexual chemistry, the anti-hero you can’t help but fall in love with and the addictive storyline are all here.. but so is a lot more. More.. that had me holding my breath, more that had me reeling in disbelief, more that had me high fiving a heroine who claimed her life back, more that had me swooning a hero who started off as anything but one.. but redeemed himself beautifully. And more because their touching journey to forever was filled with dark pitfalls they climbed out from, unforeseen hurdles they cleared, mountain they moved and demons they slayed.

Twenty-five year old Bane is a self-professed asshole, a pot-smoking surfer, an extortionist, a liar, a con artist, a thief, a manwhore and a paid escort for anyone’s hire.. his moral compass is way waaay off and he’s unapologetically proud of it too. He is also a beautiful, sexy-as-sin, tattooed and pierced bad-boy alpha, a brash and blunt player, a business owner and an entrepreneur.. which is what leads him into Jesse’s life.. because, for the backing of $6 million dollars from her stepdad for Bane’s dream project, he is secretly contracted to bring a broken girl they call ‘the ghost’ back to life. However, that comes with one caveat.. do not, under any circumstances, have sex with her.. well that’s no problem she’s so not his type. He’s a carefree player, a warm-hearted womanizer, he doesn’t need or want complications and can get any woman he wants - so he takes the deal.. the deal that’s going to blow his well-ordered life apart, shatter his world and piece it all back together again.. and Bane has a broken, damaged, haunted, untouchable twenty year old to thank for that. Because it will eventually unlock her bitter dark memories, empower her inner strength, ignite her buried courage, enable her to face her past and she’ll become an avenging angel.. and slay all their demons. And Jesse’s heartbreaking tale?.. well that’s her emotional story to tell.

Worth a credit? Pheweee, where do I start with saying how much this is definitely worth a credit. Is it the writing skills of this well-loved author who has penned an unforgettable love story weighted down with so many emotional feels? Or is it the drama, angst, passion and pleasure that balanced and blended and brewed and baked over howevermany delicious hours? Perhaps it’s the awesome character growth that bends and binds and alters and remoulds them both? Or maybe it’s the dual POV narration which make these characters and their stories so captivating to listen to as I smiled and sighed and frowned and cursed and prayed along with them? Well, whatever the answer is, I’m grateful.. and long may this trio continue to mix and weave their magic. The last story in the Sinners of Saints series.. and each one can be a standalone.

Couldn’t even past the first quarter

I usual love this author but the minute Bane talked about screwing guys for money, I was out. I’m not into guy on guy action, if that’s your thing than great. It’s a deal breaker for me.

Like her use of humor

Enjoyed this series and truly didn't think would. The Authors use of humor kept heavy or potentially dark topics from becoming hopeless and depressing

I need more!

I have now read every book in this series and I have to say that this was my favorite. The narrators were amazing and the book was funny, sad, tragic, happy you name it. It was hard to put down and I highly recommend this book. I am a big Savannah Peachwood fan and can't wait to read what is next!!!

Best Work Todate - #Bane

You know, when you have a feeling about a book, maybe because you had a small taste of character in a previous book, or just because you know the author will never give her readers anything but her best.
Well you won’t be disappointed, Bane is everything and so much more.
Destiny, Bane and Jesse had a path and their path was always destined to cross.
Sometimes two very different, but equally damaged souls are destined to meet along the way and put each other’s broken pieces back together.
It’s never easy and most definitely never boring, and what a story these two have.
This story has it all, it’s an emotional roller coaster, heartbreak, sadness, grief, hope, lust and most importantly LOVE.
Leigh Shen, I believe has offered up her best work to date.
As for the narrators, just outstanding, they are perfect for Leigh Shen characters.

A Princess and her Sword

I truly loved this story, thou I will admit for me at least it felt like a slow begging but then it was just full of "wow really" moments this is about a strong heroine and the man who despite he's title's gave her his heart. as far as the performance at first the female protagonist wasn't as great but by the end she and the male voice actor did amazing bringing these characters to life.

Bane, Bane, Bane.. I wanted to hate you!!!

L.J. Shen is pure genius! I have read every book in this series and each time I declare that one my favorite but this one definitely tops them all! I wanted oh so bad to hate Bane but he is seriously everything!! This story is unique, passion filled and heartbreakingly amazing! Bane is a badass but in an oh so hot way! He is an asshole and is not sorry about it and I love that about him! he has worked his whole life at “sticking it to the man” and proving everyone wrong and he rocked it! and then there is snowflake, man my heart broke for her so many times, this poor girl cannot catch a break and through it all she is still an amazing person. I love these two together! There are so many layers to this story it keeps you on your toes every second never really knowing what will happen next. I mean every kind of feel is in this book and its just amazing!!

Dual narration and POV by Christian and Savannah was on point! I LOVE Christian Rummel he really brings Bane to life! Most definitely worth the credit! You don’t have to read the series in order but it makes it so much better if you do

This book is amazing!

Not only are the Narrators great story tellers in their own right, the story will keep you listening through difficult subject matter to resolution and peace. Excellent Book 5 in an already outstanding series.

Highly recommend - dark, gritty, intriguing

Dark, gritty, intriguing. The characters are very likeable; I enjoyed the plot and wanted to listen to more. I liked that characters are featured from other books.
