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.
4 stars

Welcome back to the world of the HotHoles.  Dean dated Millie in book one, Vicious. But in reality he always had eyes for her younger sister.  Eleven years later it is his chance to show her they are right for each other.  Dean is a foul mouthed, drinking, smoking and one nighter alpha male that you will fall in love with.  Rosie is a strong willed girl who is done with the pity.  She just wants to live her life.  You will see all the characters from Vicious in this book.  

I went into this story thinking it will be about two people who dance around each other and then get together and have steamy sex.  It was ohhh so much more.  Dean has a secret in his life that is dictating how he lives his life.  I thought I had if figured out and Ms. Shen threw me for a loop and I was way off.  Just when you thought the twists couldn't get any more surprising she pulls out the mother of all twists.  Rosie is sick and throughout the story you will worry about her.  At the end I was reading with baited breath because I thought it was not going to end well.

Kudos to Ms. Shen for writing a story that is tumultuous, full of angst, steamy and emotional.  
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.
