#DGRFave & Review: Angry God by LJ Shen

ANGRY GOD
Series: All Saints High #3
Genre: New Adult Romance
Author: L.J. Shen
Release Date: February 18, 2020

Vaughn Spencer.
They call him an angry god.
To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.

His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.

All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.

Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.

I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.

But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.

A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.

They say this place is haunted, and it is.

Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.

Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

We were an unfinished business, personal and always walking the tight rope between love and hate.

Let’s talk about angst for a hot second here. Because this book? Mother. Of. All. Angst. Would you expect anything less from any kid of Vicious?

This book. This book was EVERYTHING. It’s not for the faint of heart. It was gritty, painful, and downright captivating. It was deliciously angsty and rip your hair out frustrating. It was all of the things. Full of depth and emotion, layered with an angst only Shen can deliver, and characters that you won’t be forgetting any time soon.

I knew that LJ was going to be saving the best for last, and she did not disappoint. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved the previous books, but there was just something about this one that felt different. it was…more. It was like a live wire under your skin the entire time you were reading it. We’ve seen glimpses of Vaughn in the previous books, and it’s no secret that the guy is all sorts of messed up. His story unravels all those layers to bring you to the heart of who he is. And who he is, is deep, multi-layered, and oh so broken.

I was born with an insatiable appetite for destruction.

What I loved most about this book is how the characters balance each other. Vaughn may be all sorts of screwed up, but Lenora doesn’t just take it lying down. She gives as good as she gets, and in some parts, even better. I loved that about her. The girl has grit. She’s got a spine of steal and a smart mouth to go along with it. The two of them together were instant sparks.

There’s a lot of back and forth and their road is definitely not an easy one. It’s angsty, gritty, and dark. And I do mean DARK. This book is much darker than the rest of the series and it definitely fits. But don’t go into it expecting butterflies and rainbows. Your heart will break. It will bleed. It will ache. And at the end you’ll be thankful for it.

Angry God was everything I hoped it would be and so much more. Shen has given us one of her most tortured heroes to date, and I was SO HERE FOR IT!!!
