FAVORITE L.J. Shen book right here!! Seriously, Ruckus was everything I couldn't have imagined and yet everything that I craved from a book. Dean & Rosie are two characters who are not what they seem, with very interesting lives.

Rosie is a fighter. She is also sarcastic, humorous, strong and lonely. I understand that her parents love her, I really do, but at the same time, I felt like they just felt an obligation towards her, because she was their daughter; if she wasn't their daughter, I don't think they would have cared as much or stuck around. Now, that is just my opinion and I understand some people won't agree with that and I'm okay with that. No one, except for Emilia & Dean cared about what Rosie wanted. Her need to be independent was something that I respected and I was rooting for Rosie throughout the whole book. I thought it was fantastic how she never backed down from Dean and wasn't scared to give back tenfold.

Dean was definitely not what I expected. His life has more tragedy and messed-up-ness than anyone would have realized. For how Dean COULD HAVE turned out after everything, I am quite in love with the how to DID turn out to be. He was brash, blunt, sometimes rude and vulgar, but when it came to Rosie, he was all of those things and more. She was his light and his reason for breathing. The impact that Rosie had on Dean was positive and I loved seeing Dean's character grow throughout the book. I loved that Dean never treated Rosie like she would break at any second. He was rough and hard with her and they both loved every second of it. The demons of the past and present that haunt Dean is a burden that Rosie is more than willing to take on, and for Dean, that was like a declaration of love.

These two characters are honestly so perfect for each other. They each have some baggage, but together, they can get through anything. The passion between these two burned SO bright and hot and just got hotter throughout the book. L.J. Shen really wrote Dean & Rosie's book with love and care and you could tell just by their story. This is my favorite book so far of L.J. Shen's and maybe that will change and maybe it won't, but I must say, I am SO excited for Trent's book!!

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.

L.J. Shen resides in sunny California with her husband, son, chubby cat and wild, wild dreams.
