Title: Ruckus (Sinners of Saint #2)
Author: LJ Shen
Release Date: May 26, 2017
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.

LJ Shen has done it. Again!! Just when I think I couldn’t fall for another Hot Hole, I do. And maybe even more than the one before.
Dean Cole is the life of the party. He provides the party. No one knows what he’s hiding deep down inside. No one knows that it’s all an act. A front. The trust-fund rich boy.
No one knows. But Rosie. His Baby LeBlanc can see there’s something there.
11 years apart and the chemistry is as strong as ever. She fights it, he flaunts it. It’s inevitable in his eyes. It can never happen in hers.
Forced together for her sister’s wedding, Dean “Ruckus” Cole becomes her saviour, her reprieve from her family, her relief from being sheltered and coddled. Rosie knows she’s on borrowed time, she knows her condition means she won’t live as long as her friends and loved ones. She can’t look into a future that won’t exist.
But what if the future was fast forwarded and brought to the present?
I absolutely adore LJ Shen’s writing style. I find it so easy to follow and get hooked on. Page after page, I didn’t want to stop reading and I wanted it to go on forever. There is a twist in the story and one that I didn’t see coming. It was very cleverly written and fit into the overall story perfectly allowing the characters to grow and learn from it.
I loved Rose’s sass and strength, I love Dean’s romantic side and geekery. I loved their banter, their trust in one another and the way they push each other away but yet pull one another closer in every thing they do.
“Forever starts now, Baby LeBlanc. With you.”
