Review: RUCKUS by L.J. Shen


4.5 RUCKUS Stars!!!!!!!

Rosie’s life has numbered days so she hast sorted herself accordingly. She doesn’t say it but every life decision is based on the fact that her life is going to end shortly. She pretends to be uncaring, unfeeling and brave but inside she feels too much, cares too much and is scared. And the person that scares her witless is Dean Cole, her first and only love. She can’t afford to be part of his games but maybe he’s playing for keeps?


Dean Cole’s entire life tilts on the axis that is Rosie LeBlanc. She obliterated all purpose in his life except of course herself. He knows her, sees her and feels her. He made the mistake of letting her go once but now he is determined to make her see him and then no one else. Dean is never one to back down and Rosie is about to put in front of him the great challenge of his life.


I can’t even with this story,y’all! I mean I knew it was going to hurt but BUT I WASN’T PREPARED. I get so emotional when it comes to these HotHoles, it feels like these are my kids. It might seem ridiculous but swear I am too invested to back out and I really don’t want to.

DEAN fricking COLE needs to be on posters on my darn walls!!!!!!! I LOVED the way he flirted with Rosie. His cheesy one-liners made me roar with laughter and also shake my head cause hello he’s a nerd. I related to Dean so much because of his emotional turmoil. I just AHHHH I want to hug him and pet him and make him feel better. Like I said TOO INVESTED!!

Rosie oh my sweet summer child! I just wanted to help her and even though she frustrated me sometimes I really adore her for being such a real and relatable character. The amount of courage she had, I think others would have broken down way before. We need more strong characters like her.

L.J. Shen is a Goddess!!!!! I am so obsessed with her writings and her characters. She just creates incredible stories with amazing characters that you can’t help but love. I’m never getting enough of her stories. EVER!

5 Stars!

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.
