Release Day Blitz + Book Review


“Everyone needs to read this book. ” – Harloe Rae, USA Today bestselling author.

Broken Knight, an all new standalone about first loves, betrayal and loss from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!



Not all love stories are written the same way.

Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.






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.






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.

LRM_EXPORT_48160100866081_20190819_093818493All feels, no spoilers. This is so difficult to write because UHMM HELP, HOW NOT TO GET EMOTIONAL OVER THIS BOOK? OVER KNIGHT COLE? OVER LUNA REXROTH? 😭😭

Broken Knight is L.J. Shen’s best book to date. Hands down. It’s raw. It’s running high with emotions. It’s simply beautiful.

Just like a classic L.J. Shen novels, Broken Knight offers – flawed characters, frustrating and surprising turns, sweet and fiery chemistry between lead characters and words that will affect and make you reflect about how you live your life.

I love Broken Knight so much. I adore it. I love how flawed and real the characters are. I cried for them. I hated them. But in the end I loved them so deeply. There were moments wherein their decisions were questionable and in which frustrated me to no end. But they’re real, just like us, fumbling and grasping the reins of life.

I’m in love with how L.J. Shen writes. She strings sentences so beautifully. I felt the emotions of each characters in my heart, in my core. Every tear they’ve shed, every smile that painted their faces – I felt it.

I have a lot of highlighted lines in this book because there were just so many great ones. One of those is, “Break for me,….I want to hug away your pain.”. See, a simple line but a gut-wrenching one to read. Reading it makes me want to bawl my eyes out, again.

I love Broken Knight. Thank you so much, Leigh, for sharing this masterpiece to us. 😭
