Rosie
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.
Dean

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.


Review

Oh my God Ruckus! This book was so close to breaking my heart, and then it pieced it back together beautifully. 

Dean and Rosie were always meant to be, they just had a harder path than most. Each brings immense baggage into the relationship and they struggle to find happiness.

Dean has secrets that weigh him down and he’s not quite ready to face them. He self destructs and self medicates because it’s the only way he knows how to cope.

Rosie is facing an illness that could take her at any moment. She doesn’t want to open her heart because she doesn’t know how much she can truly give.

I reached a point somewhere between 70-80 percent where I couldn’t put the book down. I had tears running down my face and I just couldn’t see a happy ending. The ending was everything and so much more.

Now, can we talk about Trent??? Cause little Luna breaks my heart and I need him to have a happy ending.


L.J. Shen resides in sunny California with her husband, son, chubby cat and wild, wild dreams.

Her passion is to write badass stories, sushi, UFC and her awesome family and friends (not in this order, though. Obviously, sushi comes before writing. Oh, and also the family part.)

She spend the first half of her twenties traveling the world and is now paying all the fun with extra shifts in front of her MacBook. Feel free to contact her on her Facebook page. She loves to hear from her readers.
