Review: Ruckus 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.

5 'I chained myself to her destiny.' Stars


L.J. Shen has gone and blown my mind once again. First with Vicious, and this time around with Ruckus, the latest installment in the Sinners of Saint series!

Who knew HotHoles could be so darn charming... in a super intense, make you, break you, melt your heart to smithereens kind of charming?! Their passion knows no bounds! Nothing is as it seems with this crew, and individually, well, good god, they're simply irresistible. So alike, yet so very different, not all HotHoles are cut from the same cloth. Dun dun dunnnnn! *GASP*

Dean 'Ruckus' Cole & Rosie LeBlanc's story is a passion driven tale of lustful proportions. Essentially a story of the one who got away. Their stars hadn't been aligned 11 years ago, but now, oh boy! All bets are off as Sirius and Earth collide in a provocative whirlwind of heart driven emotions that had me in a blinding tailspin of enthrallment. This book destroyed me in the best possible way!

L.J. Shen has a true talent of pulling the most effed up emotions from her readers. Sure, they're "only" words, but Shen makes you bleed out your emotions, truly captivates and makes the whole experience other worldly. I just can't even right now.

Time is ticking.
11 wasted years.
Passion and love, just waiting to be had.
Just give in!
Angst for days!!
Just give in!
Just give in!
Just give in to it!
The love of a lifetime.
Strength, perseverance... death.

This freaking book!!! It fed on my last EVERYTHING! Ruckus will tear your emotions apart, like the Vicious HotHole he is. You think you know him, but you don't. You have no idea! Sit back, strap in and wait for the Tsunami of feels to rip your soul apart and remember, nothing is as it seems.

Tick, tock.
Tick, tock.
Time is of the essence. 

'I live for you. I breathe for you. I will die for you. It. Has. Always. Been. You.'
