Jesse...ah, poor Jesse. My heart just broke for her. She’s been through so much in her short life—stuff that no one should EVER have to go through. She’s a true survivor who didn’t really need Bane to save her. All she really needed was for someone to remind her who she was. And who she was was KICK ASS!
I don’t want to say too much about the plot because there’s a bunch of intricate twists and turns that I wouldn’t want to spoil. But long-story-short, fans of suspense and angsty, emotional, character-driven, slow-burn, super-sexy romances will LOVE this one. (Which covers pretty much...everyone, right? That’s intentional.) I’m pretty sure Bane is my favorite LJ Shen read so far, and that’s saying A LOT since they’re all completely awesome.
So, before I fangirl in an embarrassing manner unbecoming of someone my age, I’ll leave you with this advice: 1-click the crap out of this book. That is all.

Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
There’s nothing stigma-y about any of LJ Shen’s books. This one’s clean and sober. No rehab needed.
