From USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen comes a passion- and angst-charged story about a woman caught between a secure relationship and a once-in-a-lifetime spark with her muse.
They say first loves are oftentimes the end of one’s innocence.
Those words couldn’t ring truer for Everlynne Lawson, whose first brush with romance came with a heartbreak … and the thing that seems to follow her everywhere she goes. Death.
After a great tragedy, Everlynne loses all she cares about—her dreams, her family, and her soulmate, Joe.
Guilt-ridden, Everlynne decides to isolate herself in Salem, Massachusetts. A shell of the woman she once was, she takes her days one at a time, careful not to allow herself the joy she believes others in her life were robbed of. But when the mysterious, handsome Dominic storms into her life, it becomes more difficult to stay in solitude. Dominic is different: adventurous, joyous, with lust for life and a passion to make her his.
Everlynne is on the cusp of reinventing herself once again when the old wounds of her past are resurrected, rawer than ever. There is nothing worse than being in love with two men.
Especially when one of them hates you.
~ Maria’s Review ~
Beautiful Graves by LJ Shen was totally not what I was expecting. I was not ready for this book. The story took me by surprise and just when I thought I knew what was coming, author LJ Shen hit me with a 1, 2 punch I did not see coming. Beautiful Graves has it all. It is a rollercoaster ride of epic proportions. It is an angsty, sexy second chance romance. It is also about Everlynne, our main character and her personal journey.
I’m not going to lie, while I loved Everlynne, I wanted to shake her at times! I’d have to take deep breaths and close the book for a minute, before feverishly going back to devour every word.
I was so invested in this story. I don’t want to say much. I think going in blind makes every book that much better. And this one? Just amazing. Author LJ Shen proves once again what a talented, creative and versatile writer is. Bravo!! Cannnot wait for her next one.
