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.
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.
5 Heart Review by Ashley
I don't even know where to start with Broken Knight. I finished it days ago and L.J. Shen's words haven't left me. This book wrecked me. My chest still hurts. My eyes are still puffy. And I still just want to hug a pillow.
There was so much back and forth between Luna and Knight that I almost couldn't take it. The angst was so high I just wanted to yell from frustration a time or eighteen. So many things left unsaid, so many half truths, so many missed opportunities to get it right. It made my heart bleed just as much as theirs. With Luna finding her footing on her own for the first time and Knight spiraling out it was only a matter of time before something gave. And did it ever.
I LOVED seeing Luna's growth. Her courage sprout even as things were falling apart and her own heart was in tatters. How she stepped up and in for Knight, and the entire Cole family, showed just how resilient and kind and brave she really is. And how much the hard choices she had made, truly benefited her.
I can't stress enough how much this book is going to slay you. It is emotional overload. It destroyed me. These characters, the world that L.J. Shen has created is so realistic that I couldn't help but be invested. Broken Knight was powerful and moving, poignant and passionate. Knight and Luna's was so much more than a friends-to-lovers romance. Theirs is a love story for the ages. Yes, it was gut wrenching and soul shattering but I didn't want to put it down and I know it will be impossible to forget.
5 Heart Review by Lorena
I think this is the book that has broken me the most from L.J. Shen. I think she is one talented author who knows how to plot and write a damn good story because let me just say that Broken Knight has broken the record for me in THE BEST READ of 2019!!
I cried, I whimpered, I laughed and I got so so mad with Luna and Knight but throughout their hurdles I dearly loved them to death.
I have to say this book was UNPUTADOWNABLE!! I just COULD NOT get myself unglued from my device because this story consumed me, it seethed itself into my flesh and bones.
The ups and downs, highs and lows -- I was totally and utterly in love from beginning to end.
Luna and Knight will forever be in a piece of my heart because they deserve an award for best couple of 2019!
If this book could reach the moon, I would totally put it there because 5 stars is not enough!
