Rating : 5 out of 5 Stars
L.J. Shen proves once more that she is a brilliant author, she can write a fantastic storyline with fully-fleshed out characters you will like or even dislike at times. When Dean and Rosie are thrown together, sparks fly. They have undeniable passion. Through passion, heartbreak and hope their story is an emotional roller coaster that you never want to end. And I, for one, can’t get Rosie and Dean out of my head!
Dean Cole is chaos and anarchy, he is charismatic and engaging and yet toxic. At times, it seems that his life is spiraling out of control, and only Rosie can save him. Let’s face it, Dean is not really the definition of likeable. He is damaged and flawed, drinking excessively, addicted to weed and everything sinful. He is entitled and spoiled. And yet Rosie never was immune to his All-American charm.
Rosie and Dean are opposite. She never had an easy life, she has had to deal with a life-threatening disease. L.J Shen doesn’t sugarcoat the reality of her disease. Cystic fibrosis is a terrible disease, treatable but never curable. Rosie’s story resonated with me on a deep level. She is a tough girl, with a snarky and independent personality. She is brave, courageous and loyal. I loved this wonderful character! Against all odds, she has a desire to live fully and enjoy every moment. She is a fighter and never gives up. Baby LeBlanc teaches us a life lesson.
L.J. Shen’s writing is amazing. Ruckus is a beautiful story, heartbreaking and breathtaking, a true masterpiece!
