What a Read!

What a read! The Villain has captured my heart and I don't even want it back. LJ Shen has once again given us a story that is compelling, emotional, and unputdownable! I devoured this book, it was so heartfelt and amazing, I just could not put it down for anything. Cillian is so much more than I expected. He is the Villain, the formidable man that is so cold and heartless, but oh my goodness...he is everything. Don't let that front fool you at all! My heart is his and he is mine and that's all anyone needs to know. I am claiming Cillian, and running away with him.
Persy, oh sweet Persy, she surprised me. I thought I had her pegged from The Hunter but no no no, I should know by now that there is more than meets the eye. She is so fierce, and strong. She is now my favorite Shen heroine. I absolutely love her and her sass! Her and Cillian together, oh my goodness... FIRE!!!!! Everything about these two is fire, they burned so hot. I was surprised I didn't see smoke coming from my kindle.
I loved seeing all the side characters. It has me thinking about the next 2 books in the series. Who will they be about?! I need to know! I think I have the couplings in my head but who knows what might happen. I just know that this amazing author will knock my socks off no matter what it is!
This book had me giggling, sitting on the edge of my seat, and had tears rolling down my cheek. And that epilogue, gahh my heart is so full right now! This book is EVERYTHING. I have so much to say about this book, but like always I am going to be tight lipped. You need to experience the greatness that is The Villain all on your own. But just know that this is a HIGHLY recommended book from me. You need this book in your life. You need this love in your heart. I want to read it all over again!!!
