LJ Shen: The Master of Brilliantly Flawed Characters

LJ Shen began the journey of the Hot Holes with Defy. A little novella which introduced us all to Jaime Followhill and his wicked ways of seducing Melody Greene into his bed and forcing her to face her dreams. Now, Shen is back to introduce Daria Followhill; the beautiful offspring with the devious mini-me characteristics of her father and his fellow All Saints High Hot Holes. Daria wants the angel on her shoulder to shine brighter, but the devil in red simmers behind her pupils and forces her hand when her firsts are promised to Penn Scully long before she understands how to handle the demons of puberty and jealousy inside.

Shen’s artistry with the written word and ability to deflower a plot and deliver it to maturity brings out this brilliantly flawed new age romance. Shen takes the ugly secrets of high school rivalries, clicks, and torment to a new level. The emotions run high as Shen unfolds these fragile characters, wrapping the reader between the inked words, the angst of reliving high school horrors, and the beauty of growing past all the ugly sides of puberty into amazing adults. Reckless is a wonderful addition to the Hot Hole family and a must read!

From USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author L.J. Shen comes an intense, high school enemies-to-lovers romance with a twist.


They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart was completely iced.
I took her first kiss.
She took the only thing I loved.
I was poor.
She was rich.
The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.
Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.
Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.
Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.
There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.
Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.


Everyone loves a good old unapologetic punk.
But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.
The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.
In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.
Four years ago, he asked me to save all my firsts for him.
Now he lives across the hall, and I want nothing more than to be his last everything.
His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.
Now? Now he is making me pay.
