#BookReview: Broken Knight (All Saints High #2) by L.J. Shen

Synopsis: Not all love stories are written the same way. 

Theirs has torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. 

Luna Rexroth is everyone's favorite wallflower. 

Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. 

But it's not real. Underneath the meek tomboy exterior is a girl who knows exactly what―and who―she wants. Namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. 

Who taught her to laugh and to love, shielding her from the world when her mother abandoned her.

Except Luna is not the young, defenseless girl she used to be. And she doesn't need his protection anymore. 

Knight Cole is everyone's favorite football hero.

Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. 

But that's not real, either. 

Beneath the daredevil, hell-raising mask, he's fighting his own silent battles. And while it might seem like he could knock a girl up with his gaze alone, he's only ever had eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. 

When life throws a curveball at All Saints' golden boy, he's forced to realize not all knights are heroes, and sometimes, the only way love can flourish is if two people learn to grow apart before they can grow back together. 

But by the time they both learn that lesson, their forever might be too broken to repair.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: This was another heartbreaking story that made me cry so bad.  I loved the characters and story and so glad that I have the next two books.  If you loved book one then this one wont let you down.
