"Mother. Of. All. Angst. This book is not for the faint of heart. It is rip-your-hair-out frustrating and full of depth and emotion." - Lana, DG Romance.

From #1 Amazon Bestseller L.J. Shen comes a new, emotional standalone about first love, second chances, and overcoming breathtaking losses at a young age.

Vaughn Spencer.
They call him an angry god.
To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.
His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.
All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.
Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.
I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.
But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.
A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.
They say this place is haunted, and it is.
Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.
Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

Angry God is a stand-alone, DARK High School Romance. It deals with sensitive subjects some may find triggering.

"Buckle up and enjoy the ride, because you're not coming out the same way you went in. A top 2020 read hands down.” Helena Hunting, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

“Heartbreakingly beautiful, awe-inspiring, and gut-wrenching, Angry God is a unique masterpiece that will leave you gasping for air and crying for more. LJ Shen is in a league of her own and this book and series will forever leave a mark on your soul.” Rachel Brookes, Bestselling author

“There are no bargains between gods and mortals” –Angry God

While every book in the All Saints High series is wonderful, L.J. Shen hit her stride with the perfect finish in Angry God. The lovechild of a psychological, twisted romance and a dark revenge plot, Angry God is the story that won’t leave you alone even after you’ve finished reading it.

Lenore (Lenny) is an artist who is determined to win herself the coveted scholarship at a prestigious art school in England. Vaughn is equally determined to get that same scholarship, and beating Lenny is just an added benefit. Like his father, Vicious, Vaughn doesn’t play by the rules, he owns them. What Lenny doesn’t realize is that by having feelings for Vaughn, she becomes entwined in his story that goes back to when they were both kids. Angry God isn’t a typical light-hearted romance. Angry God has depth, nuance, and some very dark themes, so consider this your trigger warning.

This way of storytelling is one of my favorites. On the surface, Angry God is both dark, a bit sinister, and delightfully delicious. As the pages turn, the plot thickens, the storyline stretches to encompass more twists, more depth, and more heart-wrenching feelings. If there is one thing I love in a good story is having two strong main characters. Lenny and Vaughn are two of the strongest characters I’ve ever met. Their love story is a battle of the wills.  Angry God is the equivalent of a masterful game of chess combined with an expertly woven plot by L.J. Shen. 

The entire All Saints High series is now available on Kindle Unlimited. If you find yourself in need of more reading material L.J. Shen also has the Sinners of Saint series which tie into the All Saints High series. I recommend reading them all! Angry God has made my list for one of the best reads of the year!
