When I found out that this story would feature the daughter of one of my favorite Shen heroes, Troy Brennan, I was so intrigued. I expected a take no prisoners kind of heroine, but Sailor Brennan just blew me away. She was a fiery redhead that could rival any siren but with the heart of an angel. She was the perfect combination of both Troy and Sparrow. An independent straight shooter who stood on her own two feet. I loved the connection she and Hunter shared as their spitfire back and forth banter and comraderie rivaled the insanely combustible heat between them.
All in all, I loved this opposites attract story so much. Sailor and Hunter were so different on paper but she was the only one capable of seeing through his playboy exterior to the lonely and vulnerable man inside. Likewise, Sailor was the gamechanger Hunter never saw coming and she slayed him right to his knees, catching the Hunter as her very own prey with his heart as her prize. Bravo! 6 Stars! ~Ratula
IT'S OFFICIAL, HUNTER IS MY FAVORITE HERO EVER!! OMG, no other hero has smitten me the way that he did!, Hunter is every single thing that you want, utter perfection, sexy AF, sweet, and sooooo hilarious, I had so much fun with his antics, his mouth so dirty, dear God, accelerated my pulse and melted my panties, he made me swoon like no one! My love for him has no bouds! And our heroine Sailor, she is such a brave, determined and fierce, such a badass character. I love the way they complement each other, they crawled under my skin and reached the depths of my soul I WILL REMEMBER THIS COUPLE FOREVER!
Hunter and Sailor start as enemies being roommates for a deal that benefits them both, but as time passes, their relationship evolves to friends and is EVERYTHING, they are so sexy, emotional, and humorous, laughed out loud so much with their dialogues and text messages! Their romance is an exquisite slow burn, wow, THEIR ELECTRIFYING CHEMISTRY BRINGS THE BOOK TO LIVE LIKE NO OTHER, their scenes loaded with deep tension and attraction made my heart beat so fast, and their banter, OMG, I almost died of spontaneous combustion.
The Hunter owns my soul, mind and heart, I am fascinated, soo addicted to this story, I want to live forever with these characters. In addition, the glimpses we had of the other characters, and the clues the author throws towards the possible couples, it leaves many possibilities open, I am dying to know more of them. A standing ovation to L.J. Shen, her ability as a storyteller has no comparison, this story was OUTSTANDING, unputdownable, and there are not enough stars to rate how much I loved it!
Get ready for your new obsession! This exquisite romance will ruin you for the other books in the next decade, it will take your breath away and will own all your senses!
This will be brutally real. Gushing praise again for a poorly written Shen book? How novel. These remarks are intended to make a point and shock reviewers awake to the fact that we have been slowly Pied Pipered to death in an overly- hyped reviewing culture that does not accurately reflect the true quality of books. Does the frog slowly dying in boiling water analogy ring a bell? …
I’m starting to wonder … will LJ Shen be retired on Social Security and still writing about high schoolers, barely out of high school tw*ts, and defectively immature adults that ALL need the jack slapped out of them? Boys with Peter Pan complexes, and girls too unworthy of their gender. Will they ever grow up? Who are these effing alpha holes that have such a stranglehold on her badly written, poorly executed, “Gawd I need an editor, ANY editor”, “can someone PLEASE throw me a proofreader clutching a dictionary?”, and “why is everyone telling me that each book is better than the last?” … one book after another?
Don’t get me wrong, I fan girl over plenty of authors that others don’t love or love to hate. And, I’ve been known to flourish a bit on a review of a good author by offering some unwarranted slack. But this gushing praise is beyond ridiculous. Are there no standards now, other than “let me bend over and show you how loyal how I am to you?”. Every book gets worse and worse. I guess it pays off to basically entice fans and review votes with giveaways, freebies, promotions and hawking certain reviewers on all platforms and social media sites. Don't you want legit reviews? Does anyone seriously believe that this author, for one, deserves the astronomical number of reviews for her books (stratospherically more than other authors), or that the number keeps increasing? Or that despite the books being less and less enjoyable that rabid fans keep hanging by their fingernails with tongues wagging for more? Just sayin’ like it is. Don't hate the messenger. We’re all guilty in one way or another of this behavior, and the silly gravy train of hyping bad books needs to stop.
I actually got lulled into the first few pages of this book which were shockingly well-written, and momentarily reminded me of the Shen I used to know. But then Hunter and his a-holio buds opened their pie holes and spoiled the whole thing. I wanted to a stuff a rag in it. Just another carbon copy in a long list of carbon copies …. HOW CAN I LIKE CHARACTERS LIKE THIS? HMMM? Dear God, please throw me a line … throw me a bone … throw me SOMETHING. I’m on the hunt for authors worthy of the hype. My final prayer is for this author to dig deep and restore the author she used to be. For that reason, I'm giving this book 2 stars, not zero stars. There are still plenty of good authors and dynamite books out there for us to praise that are overlooked, without drinking the Kool-aid on this drivel. I trust critical reviews much more often than positive reviews. At least they’re honest …

The Hunter is a gorgeous read full of warmth and heartfelt emotion. It is wildly addictive, beautifully written, and uniquely captivating.
I read THE HUNTER straight through without moving. It's RIVETING!!!
It’s no secret that Troy has always been my favourite so when I heard that He will be making an appearance with Sparrow in The Hunter , I was super excited... when I found out that Sailor was their daughter..: I DID A HAPPY DANCE!!!
Sailor is driven, determined to achieve her goal and vulnerable at the same time. When she decide to become “ Hunters babysitter” , she thought it would be an easy task and that she knew all about the Boston playboy/ bad boy!
The banter, the texts and dialogue between them had me in stitches several time and it was a stroke of genius from the author.
The Sassy heroine was no door mat and she was Hunter Mama Bear.
Secrets, betrayal, friendship, angst, love - ALL THE INGREDIENTS THAT MADE THE HUNTER A TOP READ OF 2020 for me!
The introduction to the Belles world was epic and only make the reader crave for the next books.
Cillian is my man!!
I challenge you to not love Hunter as he’s one of the best characters if not the best , written by the author. All that glitters is not gold and This is so true for Hunter! You get to know him and you love him more, you want to hug him and give him the love he’s been chasing.

As a reader if I love or hate the characters, I know the authors written a bloody good book. My feelings when I read The Hunter were all over the place. I wanted to throat punch Hunter. I wanted to shake the sh*t out of Sailor... but I'm a 40yr old woman and I know better than 18yr olds book characters. Then I realised I was so invested in this book, I was getting mad. LJ has a way of drawing you in. Great story and I loved it more because my main BBF made a few appearances as Daddy to Sailor... I wasnt disappointed.
Leigh never disappoints
I knew this book would be worth the wait.
I've always been curious about and drawn to Hunter (he was first introduced ASH) from day one. I've been looking forward to his book since Leigh first hinted Hunter was getting his own book and was the first Alpha to kick start a new series. And I'm happy to say that it didn't disappoint, The Hunter is a book that tugs on your heart strings and makes your eyes burn with tears at points, the sex scenes are out of the world and the books flows beautifully. Captures you from the first word and won't let you put the book down until the last word.
As always Leighs books are woven with strong emphasis on love loyalty and brotherhood. The Hunter isn't any different, these themes are embedded in the very core of the books. There's enough conflict and heart ache to keep you emotionally invested, there's lots of Leighs witty humour to make you smile and laugh out loud, your heart will melt because you can literally see the love between the character and last but not least there's oodles hot steamy sex scenes too.
I don't want to give too much away but the roller coaster Hunter and Sailor take you on is a crazy emotional one but so worth it. The ups and downs, the highs and lows, the love, the lies and the betrayal will have you captivated and emotionally invested in the characters and story and The Boston Belles for life.
The storyline between Hunter and Sailor is interesting, intense and emotional. There is so much going on throughout this story that you don’t want to miss a thing that you are engrossed and consumed by it. There is danger, mystery, betrayal, lies,action, friendship, passion and so much more!!!
I can’t wait to go back to Boston to see what’s to come next because all of these characters are intriguing and exciting!!
A MUST READ!!
Hunter's redemption and story isn't one that I initially anticipated; but as you delve further into the story you find yourself rooting for the couple along the way.
The Boston Belles have officially been born and I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of their stories.
I loved the camaraderie, the chemistry and the concept. I also loved seeing the crossover between Sparrow, the Hotholes and All Saints. It was really good reading them again.
Can’t wait for more.
