The secondary characters are fantastic. Shen has 3 more books coming in the series ”The Villain”, “The Monster” and “The Rake”. You can already tell which hot guy characters you’d pick for those books. *eyebrow wiggles* This was a 5-star read as was her previous book Angry God (All Saints High, #3) about Vicious’ son Vaughn.
