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.

Book Review: 10 shining stars


Rose LeBlanc is Emilia’s little sister and Dean aka Ruckus Cole is one of the 4 HotHoles who we got to meet in Defy and Vicioius. With Emilia now gone Rose is left unprotected and Dean is about to make it his life’s mission to make her fall one way or another. This is a story about second chance at love, a love that started years and years ago and never faded even if it never had chance one to start with.


L.J. Shen really outdid herself with this one! Just when I started thinking it couldn’t possibly get any better she proved me wrong and delivered once again.

My kindest congratulations on this masterpiece of a book that has been written so flawlessly and so real that it had me thinking I was reading someone’s life story biography. Fiction is magical and reality is painful. This was the most magically painful story that I love so much and it left me here craving for more.

“Rule number two: Your dating days are over. You’re mine now.
Are you mine too? I arched an eyebrow.
Always have been Baby LeBlanc.”

The TWIST was so unexpected and marvelous and yet so heartbreaking. I was suspecting something completely different from what I found and it was much better and satisfying and more thoughtful than I could have imagined.

“What does miss LeBlanc have that the rest of the human population doesn’t?
My heart Sue, She has my heart”

Rosie and Dean completely stole my heart! I love those two more than words could ever describe. Their chemistry is so powerful and full of life and passion that only a dead person could miss it. I loved it all and once the end was nearing I wasn’t ready to be done with this book, I wanted it to go on and on and on into oblivion.

“I don’t want to make you forget. I want to make you remember.
And I’m about to Rosie.
I’m about to rewrite the pages of our fucking history, baby “

Rosie and Dean weren’t the only two who had my devoted attention but the whole gang, every character felt like a family member that I haven’t seen in ages and was excited to know more of and keep them around forever.

“I live for you….I breathe for you…I will die for you.

I am still in a haze of reading this great book that I can barely find words to express all the feelings I have towards it. I can only recommend it 1000% and hopefully you will love it as much as I did. My heart is completely consumed and this is definitely one of THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR.
