Ruckus (Sinners of Saint #2)

By L.J. Shen



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 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.


First of all, I did not think I could love a couple more than Vicious and Emilia.  Dean and Rosie have matched them in their own unique way and their sex was insanely hot.  Their love story is full of time lost and a desire to rewrite their expected future.

Rosie had my heart in Vicious and again I had immediate compassion for her and her condition.  The author portrays her health in an honest and thought-provoking manner.  This certainly kept me guessing whilst reading the last few chapters of this book.  Which way was she going to take the love affair of Rosie & Ruckus?

Throughout Ruckus,  we do return to when they were all teenagers and I found this especially relevant in understanding Rosie and Deans underlying love for each other.

The humour and banter between Dean and Rosie is perfect and gave lightness to some dark moments in both their stories.

The girls parents were awful and the smothering of Rosie, it drove me insane.  Emilia also was not being entirely honest with her sister and then also judging Dean.

It was great to see more of all the HotHoles and how their lives were changing with new influences.  I am very intrigued to read Trent’s story which is next and called Scandalous.

Vicious stood up for his friend in the end and the role he played showed he has a soft centre under all that fierce and ruthless businessman facade.

Vicious and Emilia were an integral part of this love story and it was beautiful to see them moving forward together.  The ending was just perfect for me and gave me tingles and tears.  Dean stood up and became such a strong man for Rosie.  The author gave these two characters a possible dream and it shone like the stars in the sky.
