Series: Sinners of Saint #1
Author: L.J. Shen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.
The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares.
He is a brilliant lawyer.
A skilled criminal.
A beautiful liar.
A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.
Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.
She is a starving artist.
Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom.
Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down.
She paid the price.
Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate.
That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t.
So she hates me. Big fucking deal.
She better get used to me.

Baron Spencer Sr aka Vicious is a spoiled angry brat full of hate. Emilia aka Millie and Help. She is southern girl dragged across the country so her parents had work. Millie Has to work for everything and her family struggles. Their family moves into the garden house while her parents work for the family. Millie is thrown into a rich snooty school district where she is struggling due to Vicious. His hate for her makes her senior year hell. Then he pays her to leave after senior year or threatens her is more like it. She moves to New York with her sister Rosie and is struggling in such a massive proportion.
Ten years later they meet again on one of Millie's shittiest nights ever. Just think her Life couldn't get worse she comes face to face with Vicious. Then things get more crazy.
This was a good read. It is definitely vicious for sure. The angst that Emilia goes through is gut retching. Then you learn why Vicious is who he is. He is like an onion that needs peeling. The character build was good and it flowed easily. I enjoyed each character. Some more than others. I give this book a 4.5 star rating.
