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.

Dear Lord...Ruckus, I LOVE this book, love love love, did I say love? Dean "Ruckus" Cole is a hot dang mess. He drinks too much, has sexy times with the ladies too much, and smokes a WHOLE lot of pot, and dang if you don't still love him. Only L.J. Shen could make you love such an obviously flawed character. Rosie just wants to live, she wants to live life to the fullest and is always held back.
Every time I pick up an L.J.Shen book, I think oh she can't possibly top her last book; and then she does. I know this book left me ravaged, and I am sure it did that to her, to write it. This book is all kinds of amazing, you get to learn the back story that makes Dean "Ruckus" Cole, the alcoholic pothead that he is. You get to learn why Rosie refuses to live anywhere but New York, and you fall so far in love with these characters. I want to say thank you for writing such an epic love story. This story is told in alternating views.
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.
