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 waltzes into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman.
But my clock is ticking. See, I’m not like the rest. I have an illness.
Sometimes I conquer it.
Sometimes it conquers me.
My white knight has finally arrived.
Hopefully, he isn’t too late.
I love this series and each book holds its own surprises. LJ Shen has produced another book I didn’t want to put down.
Ruckus had me swooning, annoyed,heartbroken,overjoyed.All the feels are pulled out like a magnet in Ruckus.
Dean Cole AKA Ruckus. He was a hothole. A privileged, unhinged egomaniac from Todos Santos who thought he deserved everything and owed nothing. A manwhore but more importantly once the boyfriend of Millie LeBlanc.
Rosie LeBlanc; younger sister of Millie who is soon to be married to Vicious. Rosie has Cystic Fibrosis and was first introduced in book 1 vicious. She's brave,vibrant despite her illness, witty or sarcastic when she wants to be and kind hearted.
Ruckus claims it was always Rosie that had his heart, the clock was ticking and like the bible story of Jacob and Leah it was time to get his Rachel. Leah was never going to be a Rachel and he wanted his Rachel, it was always Rachel also known in this story as his Baby LeBlanc
I loved this reference, also Dean's references to astronomy all the beautiful words that came from Dean's mouth just at the right time when he wasn't being bossy or dirty mouthed but..... Rosie was a hard nut to crack and struggled with the obstacle of history, the one thing despite her unspoken love for Ruckus and that big cloud hovering over her head was; he was once her sisters.
Ruckus is a heartwarming read that I wasn't expecting not after the A hole that was Vicious and the naughty,dominant school boy that was Jaime so yes,I least expected Ruckus to be swoon-worthy. Don’t get me wrong he had his A hole moments, after all he was a Hot Hole,one of the boys, now a man and a millionaire, he was also treading the fine line between drinker and alcoholic.
Ruckus is a page turner of a read told in dual pov's containing hot moments, a good plot written in LJ Shen's brilliant style that has you curious or hungrily wanting to know how it's all going to turn out once you embark on the journey along with the characters.
A Recommended series
