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.

If you thought Vicious was a GREAT book, get ready for something way GREATER.


I don’t even know how to tell you how emotionally drained I am now that I finished this book. It stirred up so many emotions in me. It was a war between my love for these characters and life itself.

But one thing is certain, this story is wonderful.

It will captivate you from the beginning till the very last word. Even the epilogue drove me crazy!
And I’m not talking crazy like being curious about what’s going to happen.
Oh no, I’m talking crazy like “do not read this in public if you don’t want people to wonder what’s happening to you.” (e.g. Sweat, tears, anger, sadness, smile on your face, uncomfortable movments due to scorching hot scenes…)

It will captivate you, making you mad, anxious, devastated.

You know, this feeling when you have your fingers so numb, you realise you’ve been clutching your kindle so hard, and breathing so loud, panting even, well it happened to me reading this book. I wasn’t able to put it down.

Definitely one of my favourite books this year, I would recommend it to anyone who loves a true love story with its ups and downs, its mistakes, its heart mending moments. This book, for me, shows and defines the meaning of true love.
