~ Maria’s Review ~

The Rake by author LJ Shen is the final installment in the Boston Belles series. And I must say, Shen saved the best for last, which is saying a lot because I loved The Monster so hard.

The Rake is Devon and Emmabelle’s story. It is dark, twisted, and intense. There is a trigger warning which the author does not do, so take note before reading. That being said, I loved it. I didn’t think I would love Devon as much as I did, but that’s author LJ Shen’s fault. She made me love him. And Emmabelle is fire! She is the perfect heroine. Strong, smart, beautiful and a survivor. Both our hero and heroine are damaged and have walls around their hearts. But despite their stance on love, they are good for each other.

The banter was  entertaining. The story is captivating. What starts as a deal between Belle and Devon leads to secrets, lies, danger and passion. It is angsty and heartbreaking. It is a rollercoaster of emotion. Fans of LJ will not be disappointed. I know I wasn’t. Though this is the end for the Boston Belles, I’m looking forward to Shen’s next book.
