They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what beautiful chaos it will be.
4.5 my tide stars. LJ Shen's writing is so captivating.
Another of the hot holes find love.
Scandalous is very different from the first book I ventured into in this series, LJ Shen gets better and better her writing more creative.
Trent is in his thirties he is partner in a successful business with Dean,Jaime and Vicious, The hot holes, they are ruthless, powerful and together they are all a force to be reckoned with.
Trent is a single father to a daughter who was the product of a one night stand, a beautiful girl who won't speak,. He has a partner in the business who is scheming to take him down and will use any means necessary even by using his 18 year old daughter to spy and gain private information.
Trent didn't have a privileged life growing up and the fight is on to keep what is his.
Edie Van Der Zee is the daughter of an evil business man a selfish and loveless man who has shares in the same company as Trent and the hotholes and he wants Trent's shares.
Edie is a young woman with a strong love of the freedom of the ocean, Edie is a surfer and with all the pressures from her father has bestowed on her the ocean is her solace and her escape.
Edie has the responsibility of caring for her mother with a mental illness who has been neglected by her husband and Edie also endures other things no young girl should be responsible for and her own father uses her, bribes her dangles what she needs and who she loves in her face threatening to take it all away and she has no choice to do his bidding.
Edie has no choice but to work at her father's firm and get close to Trent.
Let the games begin.
Edie is no pushover shes brave, strong, sassy, speaks her mind and only her father with his blackmail has the upper hand on her but with Trent you could say they instantly rub each other the wrong way and Sparks fly.
This is a slow burn romance filled with tension, lies, deceit, secrets, a dirty mouthed alpha and off the charts hotness.
Trent wanted what he didn't think he should touch, he's a man in his thirties and a Edie is a girl just starting her adult life, Trent is dark, brooding, moody and fights his attraction to Edie until all he can do was ride the wave.
A complex story with so much content, twists and turns, Scandalous is very different from previous books. Trent wasn't the a-hole character I have grown to love like others in this series but he still had those qualities you can't help but love.
Another brilliant and alluring read by L.J Shen.
Can be read as a standalone alone and leads to a hea.
So many favourite quotes from this book but here's two:
"Imperfection is where we thrive"
"You're my ocean. You make me wet"
"I promise to never stop making you wet, my little tide. Promise to always keep you drenched" ;-)
