“This is LJ Shen at her wittiest, steamiest, heart-aching best!”

–Kennedy Ryan, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

The Hunter, an all-new scorching hot contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is available now!


Boston’s debauched elite is going up in flames, and it’s the Fitzpatrick family that set it on fire.


I didn’t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?

It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.

It just happened.

Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Boston’s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.

The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my family’s oil company.

Little does she know, that’s not the only pipe I’ll be laying…


I didn’t want this gig, okay?

But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.

I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.

Besides, what’s six months in the grand scheme of things?

It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.

No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrick’s charm.

Even at the cost of losing everything I have.

Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom.

My Review

Like most of L.J. Shen’s hotholes, Hunter Fitzpatrick, to the outside world, is a self-absorbed playboy who thinks with his lower appendage way more than the head on his shoulders, and for that very reason, he finds himself being ‘babysat’ by someone who is the complete opposite of the women he normally spends his ‘time’ with, which is the point, but what that means for Sailor Brennan’s new 6 month ‘assignment’ and both of their futures is still to be determined, especially when Sailor and Hunter’s verbal sparring, pithy exchanges, and volatile feelings change the dynamics of their newfound arrangement, redefining, not only Sailor’s job, but the man Hunter allows people to see.

Sailor is probably one of my favorite LJ heroines, and one of the biggest reasons is that she owns who she is, what she values, and what she stands for…she’s independent, intelligent, and driven to be, not only successful, but a good human being, which is why she’s the perfect woman to show Hunter that allowing people beneath his playboy exterior to the way more complex man he is, is what will set him on the path he needs and ultimately wants to be on, and it’s one where there’s so much more to life than the next party and the next good time girl.

As much as I connected with Sailor from the start, it took me a bit to warm up to Hunter, and I’m not sure if it’s because he’s really good at playing the role of a carefree rich guy that it took quite awhile to get to the heart of who he is, but the more time he spent with Sailor, the more his true nature was revealed, I started to see what Sailor was seeing and understand her love/hate feelings for him and where they were leading them.   

What I always appreciate about Shen’s character exchanges is just how fitting the word choice is that’s used and how fast-paced and dramatic those conversations are that pull readers in and have them inwardly shouting, BURN!

I’m intrigued by the Boston Belles and just how eclectic this group of characters are and with the upcoming releases’ titles, I can only imagine the kind of journeys LJ Shen plans to take, not only her characters, but her readers on as well.
