REVIEW – RUCKUS by L.J. SHEN
Well shit !!!!!!! This book was emotional torture of the best kind.
Vicious got me riled up but Dean Cole. Dean “Ruckus” Cole he made my heart stop beating.
“I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.”
☝️☝️☝️☝️ ☝️ I mean seriously. Ya know its gonna be good.
Rosie that girl is a fucking G. She didn’t let her illness make her weak, she was independent as was determined to do things her way.
Rosie and Dean let’s talk about the path to being together was like trying to walk through a gawd damn mindfield. And here I am reading and saying FOR FUCKS SAKES are you fucking kidding me right now. beats kindle on to nice soft blanket because well the last thing I wanted was to break my kindle but fuck did I feel like breaking my kindle.
That L.J. Shen though she’s a tricky vixen. She made me think one thing for the longest time and then BAM it was completely not what I thought. Fucking tom foolery shit going on here.
So many moments that will evoke the emotions.
One moment where my heart completely stopped and I thought MOTHERFUCK if you do this LJ I will hunt you down.
There are some characters that I fucking swore at during this book. Ones that I didn’t think that I would swear at but still got my wrath. “Cocksucker selfish bitch ass fucks don’t mess with my girl”
These two together are explosive !!!
Dean Cole is unfiltered, he’s protective, he’s relentless, he is swoon !!. Dean is “I will give birth to a freaking ovary right here and now.” Hot !!!! (yes totally stole that damn quote right outta of the book)
The things he says !! DAYUMMMMM it will make you pause and reread. The things you find out will make your fucking heart break.
This shit was Angsty. This shit was Raw, This shit was Love. This shit was Lust. This shit was Hearbreak. This shit was FUCKED !!! This shit was just OHHHHHH EMOTIONAL TORTURE of the best kind.
Fuck yup I loved this book and it will definitely be going on my bookcase right beside Defy and Vicious. I am sure that I will come back to edit because there is so much to say but I am still processing what I have read.
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.
