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.


Rose and Dean started their Ruckus years ago and they finally get to live it out. I was captivated from the prologue until the emotional ending. The HotHoles reuite for family, love and mischief and left me loving every unpredictable moment. 

Dean is manwhore extraindare. Rosie is the fragile sister of his only exgirlfriend. While she may have believed they had a connection once that ship sailed when he kissed her sister for the first time. Yet Dean is as relentless as Rosie is restless. And it seems that timing is everything. When Rosie begins to peel back the layers that make Dean Cole "Ruckus", she realizes that she may have misjudged him. Maybe everyone has misjudged him. With her Cysitc Fybrosis always at the forefront of her mind, she decides that maybe time could finally be on her side when it her and Dean travel back to California for her sister and Vicious' wedding. Spening time with Dean makes it clear that her feelings never left and just maybe there might be something worth fighting for. 

Dean and Rosie were perfection together. The tension was there right from the start and I eagerly awaited the moment sparks finally flew. And it was epic. Dean may be the nice, fun loving HotHole but he's still a HotHole and watching him and Rosie burn together was beautiful. Plus I was shocked at each revelation, heart broken to relive the past and anxious to see their future. With twists and turns I never expected, and HotHole deliciousness throughout, this series is proving to be everything I wanted and all the things I didn't even know I needed.
