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.
REVIEWED BY JILL
4.5 stars for - Ruckus - the second book in the Sinners Of Saint series by L.J. Shen. While technically this could be read as a stand-alone I honestly think book one - Vicious - should be read first so you fully understand the dynamic of the Leblanc sisters and the Hotholes!!!
Rosie Leblanc has to live a sheltered life due to her medical condition, but as long as she is mindful of her limitations she should remain relatively healthy. Living in New York with her sister has been nothing short of perfect, but now that Emilia is moving back to California her parents are pressuring her to return too. Rosie refuses to cave on their demands and instead moves into the same building of the off-limits man she fell in love with eleven years ago.
Dean "Ruckus" Cole is one of the incredibly wealthy and rich Hotholes from Todos Santos, California. Eleven years ago he fell in love with a girl, but ended up dating her sister instead. Dean has never regretted anything more in his life, but now that Rosie Leblanc is single he will do whatever it takes to claim her once and for all regardless of their very sordid past.
I have no idea why it took me so long to find this series, but now that I have it is one that I recommend to everyone I know. This author's writing is both unique and captivating with intricate stories and plots that suck you in from the very first chapter. Then add in the intense chemistry and angst and you have a winner for sure. Can't wait to read the next book in this series :)
