    English /spanish version

    This book, oh God, nothing could have prepared me for the explosion of emotions that this book is, it has been months since I read it and I still can't forget it. With exquisite prose and exceptional characters, L.J. Shen gives us an powerful, unique and emotional story, so different from what she has ever written but so amazing, left me speechless!
    The plot is complex, intriguing, with secrets that kept me hooked on the story as a crack addict and scenes so intense that they took me from laughing to crying to sighing from one paragraph to another, and left me wanting more.

    The characters are EVERYTHING, they are original and interesting. Even though we see L.J. characteristic writing style, they are VERY different from all her previous characters. Our dear Grace is so special, so brave, I love that she is not the typical heroine, and West, even though he is an asshole, rude and cruel, he is also so sweet and loyal and cares so much for those he loves. I love him!
    The intense and electrifying chemistry between them is, wow. Can one die of spontaneous combustion? AND THE BEST KISS I HAVE EVER READ I swooned so hard!

    This book is absolute PERFECTION, it is a story that talks about pain, rebirth, hope, second chances, friendship and love, and it may sound cliché BUT I WILL NOT FORGET THIS STORY AS LONG AS LIVE. That is the magic, the power in L.J. Shen words, they make you feel everything what the characters feel, the bar that she set is unreachable. I can't wait for people to read this story, get ready for the most angst book by this author to date, is an emotional ride that owns my mind, heart and soul!

    Version en español

    Este libro, oh Dios, nada podría haberme preparado para la explosión de emociones que es este libro, han pasado meses desde que lo leí y todavía no puedo olvidarlo. ¡Con una prosa exquisita y personajes excepcionales, L.J. Shen nos regala una historia poderosa, única y emotiva, tan diferente a lo que ella ha escrito hasta el momento pero tan increíble, me dejó sin palabras!
    La trama es compleja, intrigante, con secretos que me mantuvieron enganchada a la historia como una adicta al crack y escenas tan intensas que me llevaron de reír a llorar a suspirar de un párrafo a otro, y me dejaron queriendo más.

    Los personajes son TODO, son originales e interesantes. Aunque vemos el estilo de escritura característico de L.J., son MUY diferentes de todos sus personajes anteriores. Nuestra querida Grace es tan especial, tan valiente, me encanta que no sea la heroína típica, y West, a pesar de que es un imbécil, grosero y cruel, también es tan dulce y leal, y se preocupa mucho por los que ama. ¡Me encanta!
    La química intensa y electrizante entre ellos es, guau, puro fuego. ¿Se puede morir de combustión espontánea? Y EL MEJOR BESO QUE HE LEÍDO

    Este libro es PERFECCIÓN absoluta, es una historia que habla sobre el dolor, el renacimiento, la esperanza, las segundas oportunidades, la amistad y el amor, y puede sonar cliché PERO NO OLVIDARÉ ESTA HISTORIA NUNCA. Esa es la magia, el poder en las palabras de L.J. Shen, te hacen sentir todo lo que sienten los personajes, la barra que ella estableció es inalcanzable. ¡No puedo esperar a que la gente lea esta historia, prepárate para el libro más angustioso de esta autora hasta la fecha, es un viaje emocional que posee mi mente, corazón y alma!

    UPDATE AUGUST 28, 2020
    We Have the Cover, Title, and Blurb.

    It is heartfelt and angsty. It is a small story and it is a big story and it is a ME story but it is also a different story and I cannot wait for you to read it.
    It Is Coming September 15th and get ready to buckle up because the Blurb is telling me...
    My Heart is going to be in pieces before the ending...

    August 7, 2020
    I Have an Update from a Very Reliable Source... This Book's Cover Is Coming August 28th! Yes, All the Beauty, Hotness, and Just Plain Goodness L.J. Shen is known for...Oh, and here's another nugget...Our Couple Needs to Be Very Brave. Hmmm, What Does Shen has In Store For Us...

    April 22, 2020
    So L.J. Shen let a little secret out...She has been working on something VERY different from her usual. It is a standalone and to quote Shen, Boy, do I love this brute of a man. He is Alpha with a capital A, and I cannot wait for you to meet him.
    Here's a little taste to hold us over:

    You can take care of someone without blaming yourself for all their problems.

    Clearly, you're never taken care of someone.

    Clearly, you're talking out of your ass, XXXX countered, his voice turning arctic and biting. I'd obviously hit a nerve.

    My ass still makes more sense than your mouth, I ground out.

    And just like that, he was back to laughing at my outrageousness. The fact I talked back to him.

    Don't know about that, sweetheart, but it's a great ass, so I enjoy listening.

    Coming This Year..

    Is this another bad boy manwhore gets the outcast virgin book??? L.J Shen would never go there

    Im super excited because I’m sure we may get something like heroine hearing him fucking ow or seeing him getting a blow job. Fuck, I can feel the romance.

    We could consider it a win if the man being raped become something to laugh about? A 5 star read for sure if he does end up impregnating her mean sister and then marrying her after having fucked her six ways to Sunday. It’s even more epic if they named their daughter after his rapist. What a beautiful tribute. If it’s a boy they maybe even call him Ted.

    Can we call it a miracle if he gets to be in a threesome?

    Wait, maybe he won’t fuck anyone, who knows. Actually I’m sure that would kill the romance, a hero who doesn’t whore around after seeing the heroine?? Unappealing, how would I know he can teach the heroine what to do during sex?

    But hey, maybe an inexperienced hero can be cute, he can be a false whore!!!!! So don’t you go losing your virginity with any other guy moonshine, maybe there is a sunshine out there wanting him and you would suffer if he only realizes he doesn’t want to have sex with her mid thrust at your’s special place.

    Serious now, I think this will be good, he can even be faithful instead of getting tons of blow jobs at the same time he is demanding no other guy touches her.

    I’m 50% confident they won’t have any blood fetish though, that’s a plus.

    I’m already dreaming about some snack being shoved inside her vagina, chocolate is too 2019 maybe he will use something like a vegan protein bar. If we got real lucky he will use a wheel wrench because I don’t think he has any art supplies.

    I’m hoping the heroine is luck enough to be with the hero after he spent the whole summer sucking more than twenty different vaginas, she deserved to be with a guy who knows how to pleasure her. Maybe she will catch an STD but that’s a small price to pay if you get a man who makes you cum with his feet.

    Wait, there is a small hope he will “semi” cheat on her but no worries girls they weren’t actually together, sure they are married, he scared away any guy after her even while he was dating ow because he wants that cherry, he got a blow job and fucked one woman but he didn’t really want to fuck that last woman, it was a revenge, so everything is okay. They had already fooled around but whatever, no one likes a faithful hero.

    Don’t worry I have faith this is going to be good, he may ask her to have all her firsts even though he saved nothing for her, he even fucked four other girls. L.J doesn’t do double standards

    I’m dying to know all about his bad boy dress code, I’m imagining he has some holes on his shirts where the heart is, I swoon over a poetic hero.... humm maybe his superstition involves another part of his body so instead he cut holes on his pants. A practical man, you got love those

    I’m curious about their age though. How old is too old to host a party where all the bimbos line up to suck the popular guys cocks?

    It’s a small town romance so I can’t stop thinking about small town scandals. Wouldn’t it make the hero the goddess of love if he ended in a sex film with five girls? Uh la la, I’m drooling thinking about what a remarkable stamina he would have

    Do you think heroine will be bullied by him? She may suffer and struggle to make money for ten years while he is living his best life all because of him. Shit, I’m crossing my fingers for something like that, that’s a total redeemable act, he may grovel for a couple of months so yesss book boyfriend coming. Everybody knows us women get off on being treated like shit.

    As you can see based on her previous books this is going to be very romantic, zero sexism, strong heroine, no doubt standards, no asshole hero and even if the heroine dies there is nothing to worry about, eight months after here death he will be touching pinkies with another woman. It’s going to have a very fair HEA I can guarantee you.

    L.J. Shen reaches new heights with this angsty romance that completely captured my heart. The characters are unforgettable, and the writing is flawless. If you don’t read another book this year, read this one!

    Raw, heartfelt, and engaging, Playing With Fire is a consuming story about finding happiness and living life to the fullest. I was immediately sucked into the narrative and gripped by the storyline. While different, this book contains the brilliant storytelling we’ve come to know and love from this author. The characters jump off the page and immediately make the reader root for them. The writing is gorgeous and emotive. And the story is simply one of my favorites.

    If you’re looking for a beautiful read that will consume you, this is it!

    I Want It Now, Leigh wrote this—it’s perfect, we all know it.

  7. Jade Violet Jade Violet says:


    She allowed herself to look, because she wasn't used to anyone noticing her.

    Well, I did.

    I noticed she was fucking glaring.

    That she wanted what I had to offer.

    That she was hungry for the things I'd never give her.

    HOP. THE. FUCK. ON!!

    When L.J. Shen says she is writing something so different from what she has ever written, take her word for it and then some. Playing With Fire is nothing short of
    MAGNIFICENT! It was heartfelt and breathtakingly emotional and one of the best stories she has ever written! 

    No one can ever say that Shen pulls her punches. Playing With Fire is an explosive one-two combo of perfection and pure excellence! Grace and West were absolutely incredible. Two damaged people hiding from themselves and their pasts who find one another and the strength to face their fears and traumas.

    Grace was the epitome of a spitfire full of sass and fiery spirit. A young woman rising from the ashes of who she used to be to become the woman she was born to be. I absolutely loved her determination and grit. West likewise was as battered and broken as they come reeling from a painful past.  But together they made one another want to live life to the fullest again.

    Overall, this story was raw, poignant and sexy. It will have you swooning and holding on for dear life until the very last page! 5 Magnificent Stars! ~Ratula

  10. yasmin yasmin says:

    so the blurb is out. pretty much convincing that the heroine is going to be her against the world...again. the guy is going to be the most well-known, powerful and loved by many...again. no surprise at all here. i have a feeling it'll be like broken knight 2.0 so imma pass since i refuse to rewind that traumatizing experience. i'd rather drink my own vomit than having sleepless nights over fictional characters.

    20/7/2020: putting this in my tbr because it's friends to lovers and i still have faith shen has talent to write friends to lovers just like bane and not the same boring enemies to lovers shite again so
