    Description

    An Amazon Charts best seller.

    From USA Today best-selling author L.J. Shen comes a second-chance romance about love, loss, finding yourself, and getting lost in the right person.

    Maddie Goldbloom stitched up a plan to ensure everything in her life was perfect - from a career in fashion to a chic NYC apartment to a pediatrician boyfriend.

    When her ex, Chase Black, storms back into her life with an outrageous request, her immediate reaction is to refuse him. But he only wants to fulfill his father’s last wish. So even though he’s the man who broke her heart, playing his fiancée shouldn’t be hard, especially if it means she gets to watch the arrogant devil squirm a bit.

    What ensues is a chain of events that detonates Maddie’s life - and when Chase’s walls come down, they both are forced to face reality.

    They say keep your enemies close. But what if your enemy is also the man you love?

    SORRY, BUT FOR ME IT WAS A LUKEWARM LISTEN

    I usually love love love L.J. Shen’s romances.. but this one is difficult to review because yes, it was ok, but it didn’t wow me. I didn’t feel any chemistry, any sizzles or any sparks between the couple in this prolonged second-chance. But there was a lot of imbalances in the relationship between wealthy Playboy Chase and Maddie - the woman he dumped months earlier because “he doesn’t do commitment”. Maddie was trying to move on with someone new.. but, when Chase asked for a ‘fake fiancé’ favor to cheer up his family and dying Dad, what else could Maddie do but say yes.

    However the plan has pitfalls, drama from secondary characters, fireworks and emotional friction when Maddie realizes her heart is once again going to get shattered. There was a lot of ‘friend zoning’ right up until near the end when they both felt they could trust each other enough to reveal their true feelings. But I didn’t feel the romance worked as Maddie had her walls up high and kept her new boyfriend hanging on while she was ‘faking it’ with Chase.. and Chase absolutely wasn’t looking for anything long-term with Maddie.. or anyone else. And a heads up warning that there’s death from Cancer too which plummets the mood. The dual POV narration was good.. but, IMO, Sebastian York should never be allowed to do another Scottish accent again.

    Worth a credit? I’d preordered this because I love L.J Shen’s books and I do love a good ‘fake’ relationship too.. however for me, this romance didn’t work until the end.. and by that time it was just too little too late. So instead of a yay.. it’s sadly just a ”meh” nay this time.

    The Devil Wears Black

    I was very disappointed in this book.

    Had trouble relating to the characters. Both the h and H had a compelling back story; but it never seemed to really get going.

    The writing style was too quirky for my taste. This was nothing like any LJ Shen book I have read before. Would have liked more character development and steam.

    The narration was excellent as always with Sebastian York and Ava Erickson.

    I liked this.

    I went into this blind, not even reading the summary, and while I really enjoyed this story I can't help but feel like it fell short of Shen's other books 🤷‍♀️ something just missing imo.
    Anyway! 👏 Wow what a messed up ride it was despite my previous sentiments! This definitely had a different spin on the whole fake relationship/second chance trope.
    Poor Julian, he just needs a hug and a slap upside the head. 🤣

    Love Shen, but this was my LEAST favorite

    It pains me to give such a poor review because Shen is an auto-purchase for me and typically garners at least 4 stars. This was by far the worst Shen book I’ve read. It just felt like a swing/miss. The characters weren’t very likable and therefore none of them had chemistry with each another. Not just the main characters but all the supporting ones as well. All felt a bit shallow (personality and context). Between the couple, Very little love, courtship, or sex. I was seriously tempted to not finish several times and now that I didn’t I am not sure my world/opinion would have changed if I had just stopped. If you like this book- great. If you have any urges to DNF, trust me you can stop and not miss anything (well except the loss of a credit). 😞

    Repetitive, annoying, predictable.

    Listening to this audiobook felt like listening to a parody of similar books. But like an SNL version. It was that obvious and cheesy. Unassuming quirky girl sparks the attention of hot billionaire. Quirky girl, who is apparently super attractive, finds her mojo and puts “hot billionaires” priorities into perspective. That’s literally it. There is no deeper story line. To put it into the words of “Chase Black”, Overall I’d give it a “will not visit again, I want my money back zero star review”.

    Author + Narrators = Perfection

    The book was so good, I listened to it all in one go, I didn’t want to take a break!

    The Author and Narrators is one of the best combinations. This book was spectacular, and thanks to the excellent narration I am going to miss these characters now that the book is done, they felt like my friends!

    Who Wants a Man with Filthy Thoughts

    Really folks? The story line could be okay except for the fact that the male character can only think crud sexual thoughts about the female character. Should I have ever encountered someone who had these thoughts of me, I'd run away! Little do we see any admiration for Maddie's qualities - her thought processes, her wit, her talent in designing, or just her as a human being. Instead it's all about the sexual thoughts about her (and they are not tender and sweet, rather it's rough) and how horribly he believes she dresses. And WHY? Why would any woman want a man who (pardon the language) just wants to knock her up against a wall and bang her?

    A man and a woman can have a love/hate relationship that turns into love but surely it's not just all about crude sex. Yes, there needs to be chemistry, but hopefully not in such a crude thought process. Unfortunately, I can' enjoy the story because the filthy sexual innuendo just keeps getting more and more. I'm not a prude and I understand the use of sexual scenes but I just don't see Chase's thoughts as sensual or sexy.

    The Cutest L J Shen Story I've Ever Read!

    So I just finished The Devil Wears Black by L.J. Shen and I must say even though I've read her books a handful of times, this was the first book that would fall under the "Cute Contemporary" category in my head!

    Did I like it? Absolutely! Did the book have her general dark vibe? Absolutely not! I'm not saying that in a negative way. I'm a dark romance fan through and through so this book was a refreshingly good change to my system!

    So this is an enemies to lovers story with an ex-boyfriend trope thrown into the mix. Though the book isn't dark, there are trigger warnings for loss of a loved one for a terminal illness.

    I particularly loved the way the author has built up the couple's relationship. Us romance readers usually get to read how a relationship forms between two characters from the beginning. But this story starts from where it's broken off. Loved their push and pull, the silly banters and how the female protagonist develops her doormat style personality to a more strong and an independent character through out the book.

    Also I must mention that the author has done a great job in developing all the secondary characters namely Chase's father. Final couple of hours of the book was heartbreakingly good even though this story has a HEA!

    If there's anything to complain, it should be the fact that sometimes they used Uber and Subway as their transportation mode and didn't seem to have any drivers to drive them around even though the family is mega rich. That part just didn't quite add up. Also I thought Chase walking down the runway carrying Mad bridal style during the fashion show was a tad bit cheesy.

    And oh I must mention the narrators since I listened to the audiobook via Audible. Ava Erickson and Sebastian York has done an excellent job bringing these characters alive! I have given 5/5 stars for the performance on my Audible review.

    So overall I'm giving this book a very cute 4 STARS and highly recommend this book to any romance reader out there who'd love to enjoy a good light-hearted, easy going story without a lot of angst, action, steam and drama!

    Until we meet again with another book review, happy reading!
