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.

Holy. Freaking. Crap! Ruckus was EVERYTHING! This book completely blew my mind and took my heart on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Dean and Rosie’s story was more than I ever could have asked for and LJ Shen did an absolutely phenomenal job with it.

Just like Jaime and Melody, and Vicious and Emilia were meant to be together, Dean and Rosie were fated to be with each other. I loved their personalities and chemistry together, and how their relationship and everything else progressed throughout. Their interactions and banter with each other were always highly entertaining and I honestly couldn’t get enough of these two. I loved Dean and Rosie so much and I loved getting to read their story from both of their perspectives. My heart broke about a thousand different times for them in this book, but every single emotion, both good and bad, was totally worth it in the end.

Most of the secondary characters, with the exception of Rosie’s parents and a few others, were wonderful and I absolutely loved seeing more of the four HotHoles and their significant others. Jaime, Vicious, Dean, and Trent had pretty messed up home lives growing up, and although they certainly had asshole-ish tendencies, they somehow miraculously turned out to be decent and hardworking men who loved fiercely and with their whole heart. And I absolutely loved that about them. All I can say is that LJ Shen is a freaking genius and I am so happy that she created these amazing and unforgettable characters that I will remember forever.

There were so many shocking twists and turns throughout Ruckus, and I was constantly on the edge of my seat wondering what the heck was going to happen next. LJ definitely did an amazing job keeping me on my toes the entire time and I was never once bored. There were some parts of the book that I didn’t care for, but none of that mattered in the end. The epilogue was absolute perfection and I truly couldn’t have been more ecstatic with the conclusion to Dean and Rosie’s story. The outcome was more than I ever dreamed possible and left me with an enormous smile on my face. LJ completely outdid herself with Ruckus and I cannot wait to return to all of these amazing characters and books again and again for a very long time to come.

The entire Sinners of Saint series so far has been absolutely addictive and I would highly recommend reading these unforgettable books ASAP. You definitely don’t want to miss out on getting to know the four HotHoles of Todos Santos, CA and their significant others. I don’t know about you, but I cannot flipping wait for Trent’s story in Scandalous next!
