Genre: Contemporary Romance (contains Explicit Content)
I really wanted to like Ruckus but similar to Vicious, I found myself struggling to find good in it. I liked the thought of Dean and Rosie together. They fit together.
What annoyed me were all the misunderstandings. How much time got wasted because of it. Also, reading Ruckus made me really dislike Emilia and Vicious. The things Emilia and Vicious did, because of their choices two lives were ruined. What a chaotic mess.
And Dean. Yeah, sure he’s a guy but I hated all the screwing around and lack of decency. Though he seemed like a nice guy for what he did for Emilia when they were kids but he still stayed with her even though he had feelings for another. It was all so messed up.
However, the one thing that came through loud and clear in this story was that the way a person views the world never matches to that of another. There are always two sides to every story.
The overall story aside, L.J. Shen did a good job with the intrigue with Dean’s secret and the ultimate bombshell that exploded in his face. His downwards spiral was horrible to see.
The ending was quite heartbreaking, but it still leaves me with the conviction that some things just can’t be forgiven. This story was raw and messy and though it didn’t suit me, I don’t regret reading it.
