Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud. 

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living. 

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled. 

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently. 

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies. 

Jesse Carter 

Hot as hell, cold as ice. 

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap. 

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time. 

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad. 

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack. 

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

A liar. 

A con. 

A godless thief. 

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine. 

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win. 

Move the rooks around. 

Change the queen when necessary. 

Guard the king at all fucking times. 

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous. 

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once. 

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath. 

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall. 

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking. 

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery. 

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief. 

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar. 

I had all the ingredients to pull her in. 

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel. 

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her. 

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow. 

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You


I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under. 

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me. “What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us. 

“Doesn’t matter, bro.” 

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw. 

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.” 

“I will not repeat myself a third time.” 

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on. 

“Jesse Carter.” 

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me. 

Before I even knew her. 

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood. 

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before. 

Before she became business. 

Before the truth caged her in. 

Before the secrets gushed out. 

I never did get to surf that day. 

My surfboard broke. 

Should have known it was an omen. 

My heart was going to be next in line. 

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.



The new addition in L.J. Shen's Sinners of Saint Series is here and it was such an incredible reading escape! You can absolutely read Bane as a standalone, but I highly suggest you go back to book one of this series and meet all the incredible characters and fall in love with their stories.

Jessy and Bane's journey was extremely captivating. These two characters connected so well together. Bane was exactly the kind of person that Jessy needed in her life after everything that happened to her. It was beautiful to see their love grow. Bane is not the kind of person who gives his heart away. Until Jessy came along. He was completely captivated from the moment he laid eyes on her. I don't want to give too much away because everybody needs to fall in love with them just like I did.

Jessy and Bane's chemistry was intense, hot and passionate! They shared many special moments that made my heart beat faster. What happened to Jessy broke my heart and I loved how Bane slowly stole her heart by making her break out of her comfort zone. I really loved how Jessy took matters into her own hands and battled the demons from her past. She's a true warrior.

L.J. Shen always delivers an unputdownable reading escape! Her writing style is addictive and her characters unforgettable!  I highly recommend her books and I am positive that you will love her characters just as much as I do. Bane was a fantastic addition to the Sinners of Saint Series. 


I give, Bane, by L.J. Shen, 4.5 sexy, passionate, intense, page-turning stars!
