“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.

~ Maria’s 5 ⭐️ Review ~


Broken Knight is everything I hoped for and so much more. The characters were perfect in their imperfections. Knight took hold of my heart and even though he broke it, he made me fall deeply and irrevocably in love with him. Luna is a quiet heroine. She is strong and beautiful and kind. 

With this second installment in the All Saints High series, author LJ Shen continues to deliver fresh, edgy, original and addicting stories. Broken Knight is a brilliant emotional rollercoaster ride with highs and lows that had me devouring every page. 

Luna and Knight are flawed, each with their own issues. Their connection is unbreakable. The push/pull between them is so intense it gave me whiplash and I loved every minute of it. 

This story is heartbreakingly beautiful. My review cannot do it justice because I’m truly at a loss for words and I do not want to give anything away. Author LJ Shen had my heart racing. I could not read fast enough and yet I did not want it to end. I loved the appearances of the OG hot holes and how author LJ Shen stays true to her characters and their relationships. This story is so angsty I wanted to scream. I cried and in the painful moments, author LJ Shen weaves levity and wit making me laugh through tears. I felt a myriad of emotions reading. My emotions swallowed me whole. Broken Knight is the type of story you don’t just read, you live it and feel it in your soul. 

Five stars are not enough. Author LJ Shen outdoes herself yet again, and that is no easy feat. Highly recommend. Must read.

Right now I wanted to just be here in silence with my best friend. And somehow, I don’t know how, but Luna sensed it. So we sat there for what felt like two hours but was probably a lot less, until I opened my eyes again. Her eyes were closed, too. I watched her for a while.

When she opened her eyes, it felt like she took something away from me.

“Let’s jump,” she said.

“I’m quite fond of my limbs, Moonshine.”

“Stop being such a big baby.”

“Big, quarterback baby who just finished a football season in one piece and would like to keep all his body parts intact.”

She crawled out of the treehouse and settled on the branch. It was thick, but I doubted it could carry my muscular ass for more than a few seconds before snapping. I rolled my eyes and settled next to her. She slipped her hand in mine.

“Three, two, one.”

It was a short, sweet way down.
