Broken Knight by LJ Shen

This. Book. Broke. Me. Into. Pieces.

Also, it completely put me back together and it was beautiful. This book though. We all knew it was going to be a doozy. WE KNEW IT BECAUSE IT WAS KNIGHT AND LUNA. It was also doozy because fo so much more that I can't put into words. Luna and Knight went though the rounds. I swore that I spent half the book yelling at both of these characters and the other half crying. I mean I know that there was some swoon in there and some YUM, but really. I cried. A lot. This book was a work of art. LJ talked a lot of things that most author shy away from and she did it exquisitely. Knight was legitimately broken and full of passion and everything that I expected him to be. He was himself and that was exactly who he needed to be. Then there was Luna and gosh she was Luna. She was so much more than the girl we had glimpses of in Pretty Reckless and she was so much more than you expected her to be once you got to know her. But these two? They were meant to be and even thug the universe was acting against them for so many reasons, it was also throwing them together even when they didn't see what they had right in front of them. Time and again these two had me just in twists and tangles and knots and I couldn't so the way out and then at the end? It was everything that I needed. But also, can I have more?

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. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. 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. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. 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.
