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.
This is the 2nd book in the Sinners of Saint Series by LJ Shen. This is Dean and Rosie’s book.
Rosie is Millie’s younger sister, who me meet in book 1. Rosie noticed Dean right away but before she could act on her attraction, he started dating Millie. Even though they were only together a short time, Rosie still considers him to be off limits to her. She tries to convince herself and Dean that she hates him and is thoroughly disgusted by him and his hothole behavior. But living in an apartment partially owned by Dean means she can’t get away from him altogether.
I really enjoyed this book. I wasn’t sure how I felt about Dean being with Rosie, but the depth of the feelings they have for each other would make it impossible to deny. I wasn’t sure if I would like Dean much since he seemed to just be a total player, but there was so much more hidden under the surface that made me love him. There was a lot more feelings than I ever expected from this book. I also loved the glimpses of the other hotholes and can’t wait for the next book in the series!
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.
