Rosie

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.

Dean

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 Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I 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.

Ruckus is a complete stand-alone and a part of the Sinners of Saint series.

My effin' heart!

I'm so glad I purchased he audiobook even after I read Ruckus. LJ Shen is one amazing author who knows how to write stories that dig into your heart and stay there. She can create the most 'Vicious' (yes pun intended) character and you'll still fall in love. When she wrote Dean and Rosie's story, she for sure wanted to make her readers cry like freakin babies! I read the book but getting to hear the narrators, who've done an amazing job, really did a number on me. Shen's books are always worth the purchase and if you haven't yet, do it! 5 explosive stars for Ruckus! Can't wait for Scandalous!!!

This story almost broke me!

I started this Audiobook immediately after I finished Vicious. Because my need was so great it could not be ignored. And I was in the middle of a four hour drive and it kept me entertained. I was thoroughly exited when I discovered that Christian Rummel was narrating again. As I mentioned in my review for Vicious, after only one performance he has claimed a spot as a top favorite male narrator. Christian, if you're reading this, I'm DYING for you to narrate more romance! I'll one click them ALL! I really liked Savannah Peachwood in Vicious, but her performance in Ruckus really endeared her to me. She did a spectacular job of portraying not only Rosie's character, but the raw emotion as well.

Ok, so about the story. If you listened to Vicious, you caught a glimpse of Rosie and Dean. But there is so much more to know! They have secrets! Dirty, flirty, heartfelt secrets. If I thought that Vicious pushed me to the limits of my sanity, I was so very wrong. I had no idea just how close I could get to losing my mind until near the end of Ruckus. Leigh Shen, you naughty, naughty girl. I almost had an adult sized temper tantrum. You tricked me, and I LOVED it! Well played you evil genius. Well played! End result of this audiobook? I have yet to find a story and narrators that live up to the performances and emotions this series has evoked in me. I'm DYING for the next book in this series! Book hangovers are real.

Loved the story and narrators

This was a wonderfully funny, emotional book. I absolutely love LJ Shens writing style. The banter between the Hot Holes, especially Vicious and Dean is hilarious. I can't get enough of this series. All book I've read/listened to by this author have been repeat reads so far. Love love love!

Hoping this is not where the story ends

I enjoyed both Vicious and Ruckus. Both have likable characters, good storylines and hot scenes. I hope that Ms. Shen is working on a follow-up because there is much more of the story that can be told.

worth reading but not LJ’s best work.

I enjoyed this book but I didn’t love it. I liked Rosie’s character. Shes strong, Independent, knows what she wants, and holds her family together.

I didn’t like Dean. I didn’t like the “manwhore” thing and I didn’t like how they portrayed him as a good guy in the first book but jerk in this book. I also didn’t like how they made Rosies family look. In book one they were very loving and sweet and loved Dean. In book two they hate Dean and they are controlling and judgmental. I cant believe that the same please who loved Vicious would not like Dean. They also made Em look weak and a little dumb. There was deans parents. I have a very hard time understanding his dad’s motives and actions towards the end of the book. It just didn’t make sense.

Overall the beginning was slow and awkward. The middle was great and fast passed. The end was slow and drawn out.

Bottom line…worth reading but not LJ’s best work.

Awesome Narrators!

This was my favorite book so far of the series. Narrators did an excellent job! Loved the story of Rose and Dean. A Romeo and Juliet love story. LJ Shen is an awesome writer!

Another winner from L.J. Shen!

I love every single book in this series! Ruckus and Rosie are the perfect combination of sweet and hot. I'm so glad I discovered this author and I can't wait to read Trent's book!

heartbreaking and beautifully amazing all at once

This book, made me smile, laugh out loud, cry, and smile all within the span of 15 minutes. This masterfully written artfully beautiful heartbreaking love story is in a level all on it's own.

Rukus

I felt the story line was just dragged out,it got predictable with Dean and alcohol every time he had an issue to deal with, and sadly so did Rosa, so although I did enjoy the book I was glad it ended.

Great listen

Loving this series and following on from Viscous is Ruckus . This story is quite unexpected sorry I never read the blurb just dived in cause I like the authors work, but oh my such emotions from both the male and female POV had me in tears on more than one occasion . I can’t recommend this listen bore and both narrators do a Stella job , will look forward to the next in series
