BLOG TOUR: The Hunter by L.J. Shen

THE HUNTER really surprised me. While Shen's writing is as clever as ever, it took me a while for me to warm up to Hunter. Initially, I was not a fan.

The story begins with Hunter knee deep in debauchery from the jump. And, it's shockingly gross debauchery at that.

Hunter is completely different from the heroes I'm used to seeing from Shen.
He's a manwhore with a potty mouth and can turn anything into a sexual innuendo. He has zero shame and gives zero f*cks.

But... he has his moments. He can be funny and flirtatious, kind and charismatic. He can be completely charming when he wants to be. And, let's not forget that he is F-I-N-E, fine.

He's Sebastian from Cruel Intentions (minus the stoicism). He's Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl (minus the snobbery). He's Wade from Hart of Dixie (if you replace his southern accent with one from Boston). He' s John Tucker from John Tucker Must Die (but a hundred times filthier).

Despite Hunter's arrogance and gross sexual habits, he grew on me and I had fun watching his character develop into something resembling a human being. 

There's a few brief cameos of Knight, Vaughn, and Luna, but don't expect to see much of them. Although Troy and Sparrow have a solid showing, and it was great to get some insight into the Brennan family dynamic.

THE HUNTER is a funny and delightful addition to the Boston Belles series, but there is very little romance and it wasn't my favorite.



*I highly recommend reading Sparrow and the previous books in the Boston Belles series before reading this one.
