Happy Release Day / Review: DIRTY HEADLINES by L.J. Shen.


“Dirty Headlines is a fantastic enemies to lovers office romance with a perfect filthy asshole hero that I wish I’d written myself.” – Laurelin Paige, New York Times bestselling author

Dirty Headlines, an all-new sexy, enemies-to-lovers romance from bestselling author L.J. Shen is LIVE!


Célian Laurent.

Manhattan royalty.

Notorious playboy.

Heir to a media empire.

…And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.

I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.

Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.

But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.

Brooklyn girl.

Infamously quirky.

Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.

He knows it.

So do I.

Every day in the newsroom is a battle.

Every night in his bed, war.

But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.




Holy Molly! This book is hands down one the best I read of LJ Shen!!! It’s different from her other books and what I love most is her writing style – superb!!!! The cringe-worthy witty banters which capture her a88h8le alpha hero perfectly, the animated narratives and everything else in between is just beautiful.  Celian is an uber-wealthy, cold hearted, crude, sarcastic asshole extraordinaire.  Someone you love to hate but can’t.  I like that there is no BS with Celian.  He is brutally honest, speaks the truth even if it makes him the most hated boss on the planet.  Oh man, the way Celian speaks to Jude and all his employees make me want to smack him upside down in the head but it also makes me laugh so hard… the audacity of that man 🙂

Jude is just an awesome heroine.  I love how she can match Celian toe to toe.  Jude is strong, loyal, kind, caring and is not afraid of standing up to what she believes is right.  The author did such an incredible job with Celian and Jude’s ridiculous sexual chemistry.  Celian vows he does not shit where he works but how long can he resist the smart mouth employee when all he thinks about is feeding said mouth with something else … ahem J  Jude is ridiculously attractive to her boss but she wants to prove that she deserves to move up in the ladder not because of an office fling.  Celian and Jude are like magnets towards each other, full of intense passion and the sex scenes are one of the hottest ones I’ve read –lustful, passionate, romantic gahhhh!!!  I love that Jude can slowly peel down Celian’s walls and the softer side of Celian is absolutely charming and swoon worthy.

Dirty Headlines is a perfect mixture of humor, sexy, passionate, and romantic.  Fast paced, gorgeous writing, unique storyline.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the epilogue!  Made me smile so hard.  Get this book!!! You won’t be disappointed.
