(ARC) Irresistible You (Chicago Rebels #1) By Kate Meader



Three estranged sisters inherit their late father’s failing hockey franchise and are forced to confront a man’s world, their family’s demons, and the battle-hardened ice warriors skating into their hearts.

Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.

Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?
He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…




Those blue pools still wavered between her eyes and mouth. “I’m gonna kiss you now, minou.”
She might have nodded. She might have blinked. One for yes, two for hell yeah.

I’ve read some of the books in the Hot in Chicago series but I can definitely say I loved this book more and can’t wait for Isobel and Vadim’s story. This one took me with surprise if I should be honest. I wasn’t expecting to get sucked in from the first page until the end. It was SO GOOD. I loved every second of it and I didn’t want it to end. But it did. And now I have to wait sooo loooong for the next book. WHY KATE MEADER?

After losing her father, Harper Chase and her two estranged sisters inherits the Chicago Rebels. A hockey team with weak, troubled members. Harper has always loved hockey, not playing the sport but she has always wanted to work with hockey players. Her father had never really thought Harper could handle it, now is her chance to prove them wrong.
To fix the team, Remy DuPre or Jinx, has been traded out of Boston and to the Chicago Rebels. And he is not happy about it. His goal is to win the Stanley Cup and he knows that won’t happen playing for the Rebels. Remy wants to make a deal with Harper, a deal that will mostly benefit himself but also do some good for the team, he will help the team but she’ll have to trade him. She agrees in desperation for her team and her career.

Harper is different from the usual girls Remy goes for but she also the one woman who makes him feel things he does not wish to feel. But she’s still his boss and whatever attraction they feel for each other cannot develop into something more. But after one ‘accidental’ kiss, things start to heat up between Remy and Harper, and they both have to fight whatever is happening between them for the sake of their careers. For Harper, it is everything to own the Chicago Rebels and for Remy, the cup is his dream and goal. So will they give in and risk it all and just do it on the ice? Or will they keep fighting it for the sake of their careers?

Harper and Remy’s relationship was absolutely awesome! I adored them. They made me laugh out loud and had me buzzing in my seat. Not only did I love the main characters, but I loved Harpers sisters, Isobel and Violet, and Remy’s teammates and cannot wait for the coming books in this series.
If you love hockey romances this one is for you!

Staring into Harper’s dancing green eyes, he spoke from the depths of the heart that belonged to this incredible woman. “But mostly, I skate for her.” 

Irresistible You (Chicago Rebels #1) By Kate Meader is expected to be published August 14th 2017.



June 2017

Some of June 2017 new releases:


1. Trusting You and Other Lies by Nicole Williams

Phoenix can’t imagine anything worse than being shipped off to family summer camp. Her parents have been fighting for the past two years–do they seriously think being crammed in a cabin with Phoenix and her little brother, Harry, will make things better?
On top of that, Phoenix is stuck training with Callum–the head counselor who is seriously cute but a complete know-it-all. His hot-cold attitude means he’s impossible to figure out–and even harder to rely on. But despite her better judgment, Phoenix is attracted to Callum. And he’s promising Phoenix a summer she’ll never forget. Can she trust him? Or is this just another lie?

2. Tycoon by Katy Evans

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He’s assessing every piece of me, to the point I’ve never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

3. Salvaged (Saints of Denver) by Jay Crownover

Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.

Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.

The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.

4. Stay  (WAG’s, #2) by Sarina Bowen

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch—an anonymous virtual assistant service—is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.

Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting… until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth—that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.

But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.


5. Deklan by Shay Savage

My father owes a debt.

I am his currency.

I’m supposed to marry the recently crowned mafia king of the Foley family as repayment for my father’s transgressions. I don’t understand why the Foleys would want me, but I’ve grown up in a crime family, and I know the ugly consequences of not doing what you’re told.

But as the wedding date approaches, the deal changes, and I’m about to be wed to a man I know nothing about. In fact, I don’t even know his last name.
Instead of becoming a mafia princess, I’m marrying the henchman.


After one look at him, I’m not sure I’ll survive the wedding night.

How To Save a Life (Dreamcatcher #1) by Emma Scott



Josephine Clark is trapped. A harrowing past haunts her every time she looks in the mirror, and she can’t escape the violence of her everyday life. More and more, her thoughts turn to Evan Salinger, the boy she knew in high school. The boy they called a mental case. A loner. A freak. The boy who seemed to know things no one could know. For a few short weeks, Jo had found perfect solace in Evan’s company, sneaking every night to meet him at the local pool. In the cool of the water and the warmth of Evan’s arms around her, Jo had tasted something close to happiness.

Cruel circumstances tore them apart, and four years later, the sweet memory of their time together is dissolving under the punishing reality of Jo’s life now. Evan seems like a fading dream…until he reappears at the moment she needs him most. Guided by Evan’s strange intuition, they flee her small Louisiana town, and Jo begins to suspect there is something more to his sudden return than he admits.

Over twelve days across America’s heartland, deep secrets come to light, buried pasts are unearthed, and the line between dreams and reality is blurred as Evan and Jo fight to hold on to their soul-deep love, and discover that there is more than one way to save a life.

WOW. I had to take a few days, read some books before I could come back to write this review. Only where do I start? First of all, LOOK AT THAT COVER! BEAUTIFUL.
Secondly, this book broke me. Utterly. I’ve never read anything like this before. I had to put it down so many times only to catch my breath.

Josephine Clark has been through so much. After finding out Jo has been molested by her uncle, Josephine’s mother commits suicide. Now Jo is living with her mother’s cousin, Gerry, who is a trucker. They never stay at one place for more than six months. So now Jo is in a new town and starting a new high school. She has always been the freak with a scar that runs down her cheek, but when she starts Wilson high school in, she finds out that title belongs to Evan Salinger.

“Hey,” I said.
“Hi, Jo.”
What was it about my name in his voice? He was always saying my name. Even in my dreams. ”

Evan Salinger is the freak of Planerville. A loner and a mental case. He was sent to a mental institution after he had an episode in the middle of math’s class. Being a foster kid, he gets bullied by his two stepbrothers, Shane and Merle.
Almost every night, Evan goes to the local pool where he jumps in the water and holds his breath and to try to break the world record. One night when he’s under water, Jo sees him and jumps in, thinking he is trying to kill himself. When Evan explains what he’s doing, Jo offers to time him. And this is how their story begins.

“Tell me, Jo,” Evan cried over the roar of the water. “If you love me, tell me you believe. Tell me, please,” he pleaded. “Please.” 

This story was completely different from what I usually read. It was dark and had some shades of paranormal which only made it so much more interesting.

The reason I gave this book 4 stars and not 5 is because I wished more for Evan. If I go into it more, I will end up spoiling details which I don’t want to do. So if you haven’t read this gem yet, get on it.

“I never told you
I would take your pain if I could
I would drink it down
And take my comfort
In making you ache a little less
For a little while
Did I?
I’ll never know because I never told you that I loved you”

Idol (VIP #1) By Kristen Callihan



I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.
He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?

As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.
Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.
The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything




“You’re pretty.”
He says it so matter of fact. I snort. “You sound surprised.”
Killian Leans in just a little bit. “Truth? I am. You’ve been scowling at me so much… Ah, there it is again. Glaring hate-fire at me.” The calloused tip of his finger traces the top of my cheek, and my lower belly clenches in shock. Hi voice grown thoughtful. “But when you smile? You kind of glow.”

The moment Kristen Callihan publishes a book, I’m on it. Oh, I’m so on it like a cat in heat! Only I was not with Idol. I did get it the moment it was released but it has been sitting on my Kindle until today. And I’m regretting not reading it immediately. I love rock star romances but sometimes they get too much for me and so that was what I was expecting. PLEASE SLAP ME WITH A FISH. Kristen Callihan never disappoints, ever. 

“Babe, if I’ve learned anything about opportunity, it’s that you make it happen. Fear will only hold you back. You can have the world. Just reach for it.”
“I don’t need the world,” she whispers.
“What do you need?” I ask just as softly.
Her hands slide up to my neck, her lips nuzzling my jaw. “You.”

Liberty Bell- Yes, that is her name – a young women who lives alone in her grandmother’s house in North Carolina. After the death of her parents, she moved back to her grams house. Liberty is kind of a hermit, she keeps to herself and rarely speaks to anyone. When one night, she finds a bum on her lawn, laying in his vomit, passed out, she decides to go out there and put the hose to good use. And the bumon her lawn ends up being Killian James. 

Killian James is the lead singer and guitarist of the famous rock band Kill John. After the members of Kill Johndecides to take a break, Killian ends up in North Carolina, where he rents a house. He has lost all will to make new music. One night, he ends up drinking and driving, crashing into someone’s lawn and passing out. After being attacked by Liberty, who he names Elly May in his drunken state, she ends up taking care of him for the night. Only come morning, they find out they’re neighbours. 

For Killian it’s refreshing that Liberty doesn’t know who he is. To her he is just her nosy, handsome, annoying neighbour. As they spend time together, their friendship starts to develop into something stronger. But Liberty knows that the day will come when Killian has to return to his old life. And here lies the question, what will happen to Libby and Killian? Will he leave her all alone or will he take her with him?

A smile pulls at my lips. “You want me to stay, Lib?” 
God please let me stay. I’m so damn cold. And my bed is empty.
“Yeah,” she whispers. 

This book was so addictive, I finished it in one sitting. I always fall in love with Kristen’s characters and her way of writing and the only regret I have is starting it so late. 

“Oh, God, you have such a cute little pussy.”
Her head wrenches up, and she glares at me down the length of her body. “Do not call it cute.”
“But it is,” I croon, placing a soft kiss on her pink bud, loving the way it jumps under my touch. I hum in satisfaction. “So fucking cute.”



(ARC) Bad Reputation (Bad Boys of Sports #1) by Nicole Edwards



Meet the most wanted players in sports . . . one ridiculously hot alpha male at a time.

Chase: With a nickname like “Sin,” it’s no wonder they call me the bad boy of hockey. Opponents curse me. Fans scream my name—in the arena and in other, much more private places. Penalties or not, I’m not afraid to dish out a little pain. But pleasure? That’s my weakness. And no one knows it better than my best friend, Cassie Desrosiers. I’d have to be blind not to notice her rocking body and teasing grin. So when she invites me along on a trip to Vegas, my curiosity isn’t the only thing that’s aroused.

Cassie: Chase Barrett is a world-class A-hole. As his best friend, I’m allowed to call him on his BS. Who else is going to do it? Certainly not the puck bunnies swooning at every flex of his biceps. Everyone knows that Chase is the love-’em-and-leave-’em type. There’s no such thing as commitment for the king of casual hookups. So why should I care? Maybe because all work and no play makes me a sexually frustrated girl. It’s time to put the hockey stud at my beck and call to good use . . . but after a week in Vegas with Chase, I might never want to go back to the real world.



I fucking love best friends turned lovers stories. Only sometimes they don’t reach up to my expectations, sometimes they’re too much or just too plain. Bad Reputation was fucking PERFECT! I COULD. NOT. PUT. IT. DOWN. That’s how good it was.

Chase Barrett. This man. Oh. I swear this man had me falling in love from the first page.

Chase is the bad boy of hockey and is known as Sin by his opponents and his fans. He was raised by his dads, Chief and Dad and has been best friends with Cassie for nine years. She’s his rock and vice versa. Chase has always found Cassie attractive and beautiful inside out but Cassie had made it very clear that their relationship did not go above anything other than best friends and Chase was okay with that. When Cassie invites him to Vegas, he jumps on board and BAM! WHAM!
Oh lord this man had me swooning. He was so sweet and funny and sexy and oh my gawwdd gimme, GIMMIE!… please?

Cassie Desrosiers, girly you.

Cassie works as the vice president at some high tech company, or shall I say techno company as Chase called it. She is used to seeing Chase being flocked by puck bunnies and she’s fine with it… only she lets Chase know what she really thinks of his player ways. Now, Cassie is no stranger to sex or men but she is kind of a prude. She doesn’t really do the whole casual sex and move to the next like her best friend.
But when things start to heat up between her and Chase in Vegas, she starts to question where things will lead. Chase doesn’t do relationships. She does not want to jeopardise their friendship.

I loved Chase and Cassie’s relationship. I loved how strong it was and how comfortable they were with each other. This was a real one and I wish I could read it for the first time again. I will definitely reread Bad Reputation and enjoy it just as much.

Nicole Edwards, you never cease to amaze me. Thank you for giving me Chase Barrett. I shall love him always.

Bad Reputation by Nicole Edwards is expected to be released on October 3rd 2017. Go. Get it. You won’t be disappointed.

(arc) Arm Candy (Real Love #2) By Jessica Lemmon



Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.

Davis: I’ve had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace—the tattoos? the nose ring?—makes every part of me sit up and beg. There’s only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can’t get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I’m determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.

Grace: I’m used to regulars hitting on me, and I’ve turned them all down, except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he’s kind of cute in his suit and tie—if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don’t care how many blondes he takes home . . . until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it’s not a question of what I want. It’s what I need. And what I need is Davis.


3 stars

arc 2.png

This is definitely a sweet read anybody will enjoy. Though I couldn’t give it five stars, I did still enjoy it overall.

Grace is a bartender-or a beer mistress as she calls it- at McGreevy she’s used to getting hit on and always turns them down. She never really pays much attention to the man behind the drink but that changes when Davis starts coming to the bar. He has caught her attention. He sits in the same spot in his suit and with his attention on the TV.

Davis is intrigued by Grace and he doesn’t like it. She is the absolute opposite of his regular hookups. He likes them blonde and kind of bubbly, one he can just bring home, do the deed, and never see again. Grace is a redheaded bartender, with tattoos and a nose ring, and sassy attitude.

“Grace Buchanan excites me. I don’t like that Grace Buchanan excites me.” 

Davis and Grace were sweet together. I loved their back and forth banters and I laughed out loud throughout.
If you’re looking for something funny yet sweet and sexy, Arm Candy is for you.

Arm Candy By Jessica Lemmon comes out 5th September 2017.


Unbreak My Heart (Fostering Love #1) Nicole Jacquelyn



What do you do when your soul mate marries your best friend?

If you’re Kate Evans, you keep your friend Rachel, bond with her kids, and bury your feelings for her husband. The fact that Shane’s in the military and away for long periods helps—but when tragedy strikes, everything changes.

After Rachel, pregnant with her fourth child, dies in a car accident and the baby miraculously survives, Kate upends her entire life to share parenting duties. Then on the first anniversary of Rachel’s death, Kate and Shane take comfort in each other in a night that they both soon regret.

Shane’s been angry for a year, and now he feels guilty too—for sleeping with his wife’s best friend and liking it… liking her. Kate’s ability to read him like a book may have once sent Shane running, but their lives are forever entwined and they are growing closer.

Now with Shane deployed for seven months, Kate is on her own and struggling with being a single parent. Shane is loving and supportive from thousands of miles away, but his homecoming brings a betrayal Kate never saw coming. So Kate’s only choice is to fight for the future she deserves—with or without Shane…



They were fucking fire together and I loved the burn!

After tragedy strikes and Kate’s best friend and Shane’s wife loses her life, Kate steps up and takes care of Rachel and Shane’s children while he is overseas. Kate absolutely loves her little monsters and feels nothing but joy taking care of them. It’s been a year since Rachel’s passing and Shane is still mourning her. One night, Kate and Shane end up together, seeking comfort in each other and then….BOOM! Shane is an absolute asshole to Kate about that night and I swear, I wanted to slap the man with a bat.

“I don’t know what I’m doing, Kate,” I said softly, searching her eyes. “But I know that I want you. Help me.”
“I’ve been helping you since we were kids, Shane,” she replied, with a weary shrug. “I just don’t think I have anything left.”

I’ve always had a thing for a cold, heartless hero but I swear to you, I wanted to choke Shane for a hot minute. He’s the hero I LOVED to hate and then I fell fucking hard.

Kate, oh sweet, gorgeous, Kate Evans. I felt everything for her. Her pain. Her joy. Her heart. I loved Kate instantly and felt for her deeply. Every harsh word and look from Shane broke my heart but I was blown away by Kate’s strength. She was the absolute heroine. Strong yet vulnerable. Sassy and funny. I loved how she evolved and only got stronger as a person.

This is my first book by Nicole Jacquelyn and it certainly will not be my last! Nicole captured my heart from the first page. Unbreak My Heart was full of pain, love and angst and I LOVED IT!

Hit the Spot (Dirty Deeds #2) by J. Daniels



Is this love or just a game?
Tori Rivera thinks Jamie McCade is rude, arrogant, and worst of all . . . the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on. His reputation as a player is almost as legendary as his surfing skills. No matter how her body heats up when he’s around, she’s determined not to be another meaningless hookup.

Jamie McCade always gets what he wants. The sickest wave. The hottest women. And Tori, with her long legs and smart mouth, is definitely the hottest one. He knows Tori wants him-hell, most women do-but she won’t admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it’s time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won’t just want him in her bed, she’ll be begging for it-and he might be right. Somehow he’s found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before. But with all she knows about his past, can she really trust what’s happening between them? Is Jamie playing for keeps or just playing to win?



Wow! Just wow! 
Jamie McCade really Hit the spot!

This is one of those books that are hard to put down. I loved everything about Hit the spot.

“I’m taken,” I repeated. “You ain’t taken, Legs. Not unless you’re with me.”

Jamie McCade – Oh my god, I loved this man from the moment he appeared in Four letter word. He’s a sexy, arrogant, badass and pure dirty-mouthed-ALPHA and I loved it. Jamie is a ‘famous’ surfer and he owns WAX with his best mate, Brian. He has a reputation as a player and he’s famous for his meaning-less hookups. Now, Jamie has his sights on the sexy, strong headed, beautiful waitress, Tori Rivera. His ‘Legs.’ He always gets what he wants, and he wants Tori Rivera.

“Good afternoon. My name is—”
“Fuck me, babe,” Jamie muttered through a thick sex-soaked voice, cutting me off as his eyes skimmed up and down the length of me. “You make that ugly-ass uniform look fuckin’ good. No shit.”

Tori Rivera– I loved this woman. She was everything. I loved how she took no shit from anyone, she was strong and beautiful. After getting her heart broken, she does not need it to be broken again. There’s no doubt Tori finds Jamie attractive. With his smile, his dimples *swoon*and his surfer looks but despite his looks, he’s a arrogant jerk and she finds his views on relationships disgusting.

‘He didn’t respect love. And that disgusted me.’

So after months of chasing and dodging, Jamie puts it out on the table. Tori must come to him, begging. So now starts the game, there’s surfing lessons, late night dinners, lock picking, birthday at the strip club, Sunday’s at Syd and Brian and with it all comes bickering and a lot of dirty talk.

‘She rolled up onto her toes and tipped her chin up. “Kiss,” she requested. I grinned at her, keeping my arms pulled across my chest and not bending down. “Fuck?”

These two together were a pleasure to read. I loved their chemistry, I loved their bickering and I absolutely loved their hotness. They were hilarious, sexy, loving, and absolutely adorable.

“You give it up, Legs, don’t matter what it is and I’m keeping’ it”

Ruckus (Sinners of Saint #2) By L.J Shen



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!

❛ What makes you feel alive? ❜
