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.


Holy freaking cow batman! Broken Knight is toe-curling good. There are a few things I look for in a five-star book (which Broken Knight absolutely is) and those are, does it elicit an emotional reaction? Do I feel something down in the pit of my stomach that makes me ache? Did I stay up all night reading it because it was just that good? And would I read it again?

The answer to all of those questions is a resounding YES!

I loved Knight. He was so damaged and emotionally scared and Luna had her own baggage and together they were almost tragic in how they were broken but they had the pieces one another were missing and their love story while riddled with pit falls because something so beautiful. I absolutely loved it.

This was my book by L.J. Shen and it definitely will not be my last. I can’t wait to go back and read the earlier books in the All Saints High and Sinners of Saint series.

HUGE Thanks to Laura Thalassa. She recommended it on social and I can not be happier for it.
