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.
REVIEWED BY AMY M
SO MANY EMOTIONS!
This book too me a few hours to recover from and I still don’t feel like I can express how I feel about what this book brought to life inside my mind. I haven’t read many of Ms. Shen’s work but the few that I have read have spoken so loudly to me that I am left or a few hours or days with my thoughts. Not many authors have been able to knock me off balance and when I find one that does, I hold on to for dear life! Beware this book made me go through a roller coaster of emotions but this book is worth the heartbreak you go endure.
Let me just start off with Rosie and what an inspiring woman she was throughout the book. You can only love her for fighting her feelings and the reasons behind the fight. Although, the family issues bothered me only because I just wanted to jump into the book and make everyone LISTEN! When you get to the part where you just want to slap someone and make them see their effect on others you will understand. As much as I loved Millie, my love for Rosie is just ten times that because of what a fierce woman she becomes in the book.
DEAN! Oh goodness Dean! He is what we dream of when we dream those hot sex craved men who just devour their woman. My FAVORITE Hot Hole for sure!! You must read the entire book because I was, at one point, so angry at Dean that I was sick and didn’t want to finish. Crazy I know but true. I had to put my phone down so I would not throw it. Crap happens but I got over it and kept reading but on the edge of my seat at work. Let me tell you about trying to read this book and actually getting anything done will NOT HAPPEN! I had to let my phone die to make me leave this book alone to accomplish anything at work. You will be knocked on your butt and shocked into crying fits, but this book was everything I had hoped.
This is at the top of my list this year and I will definitely be re-reading several times, because who could get tired of Ruckus!! Congrats on this amazing best seller!!!
