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 fucking 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.
"I'm about to rewrite the pages of our fucking history, baby."
I've read a few books by L.J Shen and yet I'm still in awe over how captivating her stories are. From the second I picked up Ruckus I was in full on reading-beast mode and yelling at everyone that tried to interrupt me. L.J's writing is just that good for me and I don't think I'll ever get enough.
Dean 'Ruckus' Cole has now become one of my most loved Alpha Heroes and I'm pretty sure he'll be featured in my dreams for many nights. His possessive and crazy behavior was completely swoon worthy and I never once doubted his feelings for Rosie. I loved how outgoing he was and that he didn't apologize for the things he wanted or ever try to change to how society wanted him to. He was just this very real and open character that was perfect for Rosie.
Rosie was a character that broke my heart in two. She tried so hard to live her life to the fullest despite her illness and I loved her for it. It didn't always work and sometimes she let life beat her down a little bit, but she always got back up and dusted herself off. I admired her so much, especially when she let Dean help her look forward to the future instead of dread it.
Honestly I don't think I stopped swooning once during this read. Dean and Rosie were just so perfect together, both a little damaged but together they carried each other through the hard times. It was a true love story and one that I won't be forgetting anytime soon.
"You're breakable, Dean Cole. I'm going to do my best to keep you whole."
Bottom line, I can't recommend this book hard enough. Dean is not a Hero that you want to miss because you will regret it, trust me on that on.
I ve been dying for Dean Cole's book for forever and I wasnt disappointed at al.Dean is one of the cool headed HotHoles he luvs his women pot and alcohol. But the one woman that he wants more than anything is Rosie LeBlanc and now he's not goin to let her get away. They have been through a lot in the past and now there are things still getting in way. It's not your normal relationship at al. Dean is a great character he is sexy has a dirty mouth what more can u ask for. But this guy as been through so much and is still dealing with things. Rosie is the the only person that can help him to be a better guy and she isn't getting away.
Rosie God what can I say this girl is just amazing. I was dying to know more about her after reading Vicious so i knew that she was ill. I was heartbroken for Rosie through most of the book she had to deal with not just being ill but with her parents as well. There was so much pressure on her I don't know how she dealt with it al. I actually wanted to shout at parents they were so horrible it made me so angry. Then she had Dean God there relationship is just a whirlwind of emotions for both of them but they made the most cutest couple and we're hot together. If anyone deserves to have a HEA it was these two.
This author as become one of my al time favourites. I ve read every one of her books and they are amazing so I knew this book was goin to be great. But it wasn't just great it was far more with the twists and turns and the heartbreaking story lines it was amazing. These HotHoles were sexy strong alphas men and I just luv them.
Overall this book was heartbreaking emotional sexy and had my hooked from page one. I highly recommend it and I m really looking for to more of this series and more of the HotHoles.
