They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They’re right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister’s ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.
They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like fucking Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.
❝ But there is something you should know before you judge me.
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first. ❞
L.J Shen has gone and done it again!
I could not put Ruckus down! I loved every effin’ second of it. It was amazing and totally worth the wait.
I fell in love with Dean in the first book Vicious and honestly, wasn’t too sure about Ruckus. Dean had dated Rosie’s older sister and I didn’t know how this would be to read. Only it was absolutely amazing!
We meet Rosie Leblanc in Vicious. She’s the little sister of Emilia LeBlanc.
In the first book it is revealed that Rosie has cystic fibrosis and she believes her lifeline is shortened and that is the reason she doesn’t do long time relationships. She first met Dean when she was a teenager and was living at home with her family. She had to go through the torture of seeing her sister and the love of her life together. Now eleven years later, she’s living alone in New York and in the same building as Dean. I adored Rosie and her strength. She was a strong heroine. Someone you fall instantly in love with. She took no shit from anyone and she had a snarky attitude when needed.
❝ Maybe the memo got lost in the mail.
Because you’re definitely my business, Baby LeBlanc. ❞
Dean ‘Ruckus’ Cole. Our main man! Gahhhh, I LOVED him!
Dean is a damaged billionaire if you will. He drowns himself in alcohol, sex and drugs. While in his teens, he dated Emilia before she ran off. But even while dating older LeBlanc, Dean was drawn to Rosie. He wanted her. He craved her. His Baby LeBlanc. Now she’s single and living in his building and in his apartment. I love how Dean didn’t give up on Rosie and how he could be sweet yet firm at the same time. He’s so alpha, sexily possessive and protective and it had me squirming!
Dean and Rosie’s story was phenomenal. I absolutely adored their relationship. I loved their back and forth banter. I loved their smoking hot connection. These two were so much alike yet so different. They had me laughing, crying and blushing throughout.
❝ I don’t want to make you forget. I want to make you remember. And I’m about to, Rosie”. He breathed hard against my skin. “I’m about to rewrite the pages of our fucking history. ❞
Ruckus is definitely a must read for everyone!
