Publisher's Summary

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 tree house 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.

Best Audio of 2019

This book has become a favorite and now listening to the audio I’m blown away. Jacob Morgan brings Knight Cole alive. I think it’s his best narration I’ve heard. Every nuance, sarcasm, emotion, and the internal dialogue was perfection. All the narration was so so good. Absolutely loved it!!!

Drags On and On and On and On

I love angst. Read angsty books all the time. This book has more angst than is really necessary. They are both teens so I cut them a little slack, but it got really old really fast. Their decisions made no sense most of the time. Also the woman narrator gave everyone a super posh voice. I found that off putting and it took me out of the story. Especially after reading about these women in previous books and knowing they aren’t snooty. They all spoke like the Queen of England in this narrators performance.

Just no

These two are a hot mess and that’s putting it nicely. Knight is so vindictive, mean and so full of himself I would have said bye a long time ago. Luna was a doormat that let everyone else run her life. I’m 80% through this audio and I’m done with the toddler like fit throwing and you did this so I’m going to get you back and hurt you more. Seriously wtf. I’m glad I didn’t actually pay for this audio

Alright already...

This was too drawn out! I like the next generation of hotholes but this was 11 hours of angst and too much bull! Had the story line wrapped up sooner and not been drawn out, it would have potentially been better!!

It was ok....but

I never ever write reviews but i had to with this one. It’s honestly just a story about teenagers who act like teenagers. Gets kinda annoying at times and teenage sweet at others. If I’d have known it was about kids I wouldn’t have listened to it in the first place. They should put a young adult label on this book.

Unpopular opinion...

Okay, I'm all for the drama, but this story DRAGS. The story had me hooked from the beginning, but halfway through I was beginning to get very bored and frustrated with the characters. The simple concept: two best friends who are in love with each other, but can't properly express their feelings. Knight is self-absorbed, a bully, and manipulative. Honestly, I could say the same about Luna. I am not going to root for two characters who constantly belittle one another and purposely make the other person feel pain, to fall in love. The two of them are self-destructive, and came across as unlikable. I kept waiting for something to happen for them to be better. Nope. The only thing that saved this book was the narration performance.

It’s A Long Story!

So I’m guessing everyone who reads this book loves it. For me, it started out great, then around chapter 6, Luna and Knight lost some of their appeal. She was a girl with such deep seated issues that she couldn’t speak, and he, well, he had a zillion and one issues of his own. It wasn’t horrible, it just got too wordy for me, if that makes sense (I know, it is a BOOK, after all), but 11 hours is absurd! I feel like anything written that takes over 8 hours to perform, is because the Author just likes to, “hear themselves speak” if you know what I mean. If you love flowery wordy sentences and way too much information, you’ll love this book, but better pack a lunch...

There are not enough stars!!! L.J. Shen SLAYED!

It's been a few days since I finished Broken Knight and it is now when I can feel stable enough to write a review, be focused and not ramble away. I will start by saying that this story is WELL WORTH THE HYPE!! If you are a fan of The Sinners of Saint and now the All Saints High having this story told just gives us fans an additional look into what is happening with the characters that we love and adore. When you figure that this story is about Knight and Luna you already know that it will be quite a ride. These are people that have so much going on in their lives as individuals and then add the stress of growing up and having to make decisions... on top of family drama. For every L.J. Shen story I read / listen to I feel I am going on a journey in which I give her my faith and my trust and I just hold on to the ride. This story was very emotional on every level and yet she found ways to bring in humor, banter and outstanding characters that continue to excite by adding additional layers to the story. It came a point in the story that you knew where she would go and even though it hurt, it was beautifully written and perfectly performed by Savannah Peachwood. Her chapter totally obliterated me!! And then bring in Christian Rummel reprising his role as Dean and having to listen to his POV and what he was going through just tore me open even more. I thought I had no more tears left but then the ending was poignant and the characters had so much growth that I was proud and elated for them. This is what L.J. Shen does so well and casting Jacob Morgan & CJ Bloom as the leads was a outstanding casting choice. They carried these characters with strength, conviction and passion and deserve a huge standing ovation. This is certainly a top audio for me this year. I can not even imagine what is in store for us with Angry God!! Bring it on!!

Meh

I love this author and I liked these characters. But honestly I was hoping for more intimacy. I feel like the first generation of bad boys were more bully and erotic. Sorry, but get on with it. It could’ve been a 5 hour book.

Emotional story.

This book really caught my attention with all the chatter on FB. I've only read one other book by this author. And I like her writing style and the content of which she writes. This was such an emotional story. The narrators really brought the story to life. Have your Kleenex ready for this one.

Broken Knight is phenomenal

I’ve read and listened to this book twice already. OMG the feels is unreal!!
Leigh Shen writes a masterpiece with Knight and Luna’s story- this is so much more than a friends to lovers romance! It’s so much more than a romance novel... I was moved and felt like there was so much to take from this book than just this beautiful heart breaking story.

This audiobook is one of my absolute favourites, two of my favourite narrators in Savannah and Jacob! Oh my word, the years I cried reading the book doesn’t compare the emotional wave that struck listening to their voices. Jacob Morgan as Knight Cole is sensational!
I found the additional voices for Dean and Rosie to give and extra depth and dimension to this already beyond perfect book.

A no holding back look at love, loss, and addiction in all its forms.

I never cried after my sister died also from a lung disease. This book made me face my loss and allowed me to grieve.

It did so much more as it showed me the anxiety and inner turmoil of love and life. The beauty and the ugliness that co-exhaust.

This is a book I’ll listen to again after I pick up my pieces and reform into a stronger me.

Not what I expected

The first half is immature romanticising a soul mate connection, riddled with unhealthy behaviours. It has me questioning if it was written by a teenager or an adult. Then the story took a turn as we opened up Rosies story and the characters seem to deepen as the writing matured. It’s the reason I didn’t put this one aside as not my type of book. If your after an easy read with a happy ending give it a go. A mature well rationed story that will have you in the edge of your seat... properly best to keep looking.

Not my cup of tea.

The mix of entitled rich teenagers with angst was not easy to relate to, yes privilege does not protect against real world issues such as ill health and family conflict, but the behaviour of the boys was nasty. The way that sex was used as a weapon seemed a toxic message, that I also find confronting and not effective.

I did not enjoy this book.

A great read

I loved all 11 hours and 9 minutes of this book, the twists and turns and power of eternal love, in all it’s forms. I love how the reader hears the viewpoint of all characters and feels the heartache of their love. Main characters are complex and well developed, although too pure to be true perhaps .
And mostly I love that I could not put the story down.

I absolutely loved this book

I absolutely loved this audio of this book. The narrators did an amazing job of bringing these characters to life. I loved Knight and Jacob Morgan brought him to life with his humor and anguish.
