My Favorite Things Event with L.J. Shen

L.J. Shen is a best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled all over the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like chocolate, wine, reading, HBO, spending time with her girlfriends and internet-stalking Chris Hemsworth. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

L.J. Shen's favorite things:

1. Wine and chocolate.
Yes. Together. Especially in a hotel room. Every time I need to recharge I lock myself in a room all by myself with these two and go to town. Cheaper than therapy, right?

2. My family.
My extended family, of course, but specifically my mom, husband and son. They're my rock. I always try and do fun stuff with them, not take them for granted and make sure that they know how loved they are. Because they are. Very much so.

3. The Great Gatsby. 
I watch it every single month. I'm not even sure why. I know the script by heart and mouth it along with the characters.

4. MMA.
I'm kind of in love with this sport. It's bloody and uncomfortable for some to watch, but I find it liberating to watch it. I sometimes do it myself, but I'm not half as good as I want to be.

Banal and totally predictable, right? But I feel like books make the world a happier place. My life is magic because of other people's words.


They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.
The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares.
He is a brilliant lawyer.
A skilled criminal.
A beautiful liar.
A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.
Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.


She is a starving artist.
Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom.
Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down.
She paid the price.
Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate.
That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t.
So she hates me. Big fucking deal.
She better get used to me.
