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.

My Review:

4.5 Stars!
Wow!  Just wow!  LJ Shen’s newest book, Ruckus, is seriously good.
Dean and Rosie’s story is amazing, heartbreaking, infuriating and so much more!
Dean is an amazingly complicated character.  There is so much more to him than what is on the surface.  This man hurts… he hurts so much.  One thing that has been consistent with him over the years is his love for Rosie, the girl who broke his heart.
Rosie, the girl who has loved Dean for eleven years, but pushed him into the arms of her sister because she didn’t want to trap him into loving a dying girl.  Now, her CF is semi under control, but her health is hanging on by a thread.  She has lived the last several years in NYC to escape the feeling of being suffocated by her family.
It was an amazing moment when Rosie finally gave in.  Dean never minced words, so he makes it known to Rosie how he feels and that he wants her.  They have so much working against them.  Things snowball and poop hits the fan in the worst way.  Make sure you have tissues, because tears will come.
Shen’s writing is great, as always.  She has quite a knack for writing the feels.
A great addition to this series and I can’t wait for more!
