Blog Tour: The Hunter (Boston Belles #1) by L.J. Shen

Today is my stop during the blog tour for The Hunter. The Hunter is a newly released contemporary romance book from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen.

Title: The Hunter
Author: L.J. Shen
Series: Boston Belles #1

I didnโ€™t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?
It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.
It just happened.
Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Bostonโ€™s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.
The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my familyโ€™s oil company.
Little does she know, thatโ€™s not the only pipe Iโ€™ll be layingโ€ฆ

I didnโ€™t want this gig, okay?
But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.
I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.
Besides, whatโ€™s six months in the grand scheme of things?
Itโ€™s not like Iโ€™m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Bostonโ€™s most eligible bachelors.
No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrickโ€™s charm.
Even at the cost of losing everything I have.
Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom.


โ€œWhy?โ€ I asked, blinking at him in confusion. I had two left legs and the coordination of roadkill. I couldnโ€™t dance if my life depended on it. Iโ€™d tried dancing at the only party Iโ€™d ever gone toโ€”sophomore yearโ€”and was subjected to such thorough humiliation. People took videos of me dancing and forwarded it to half my school. Saggy Sailor, theyโ€™d graffiti-ed on my locker. Apparently, my back looked hunched and droopy when I danced.
โ€œBecauseโ€ฆโ€ He tilted his chin down, his voice low, smoldering. โ€œYouโ€™re obviously bored, and my family is watching us, and Iโ€™m partial to fondling you.โ€
โ€œItโ€™s the dress,โ€ I muttered.
โ€œIโ€™d actually prefer fondling you out of it.โ€
I sliced my gaze sideways, noticing that Aisling and Persy hadnโ€™t picked up on my exchange with him. They were now watching a video, probably of the reality show they were arguing about. Even though Hunter was just after a friendly dance to show his family we were getting along, I couldnโ€™t unglue my butt from my chair.
โ€œNo fondling.โ€ I crossed my arms over my chest, buying time.
โ€œNo promises. Get up.โ€
โ€œDid you tell anyone we live together?โ€ I accused, my eyes narrowing into slits.
He stared at me, wide-eyed, mouth parted. โ€œNegatory.โ€
โ€œDid you tell anyone we were dating?โ€
โ€œThis is the lamest twenty-questions game Iโ€™ve ever participated in. No.โ€
โ€œWell, people are talking about us.โ€
โ€œThatโ€™s what people do. They fill the air with useless words to entertain each other. Itโ€™s called gossip, and it sucks all the asses in the world. Doesnโ€™t mean it was me. Our building employs more than a hundred people. All of them work for my father. That means heโ€™s spreading whatever the hell he wants to spread.โ€
