Abby’s 4 Blush Review
Ruckus aka Dean has a thing for Millie’s little sister Rosie. We met Millie in the first book in this series, Vicious. Since it took me a minute to remember Vicious, the way Millie was casually mentioned, I felt like I needed to pull out that book to know what they were talking about. That being said, if you know there is a first book and Millie is Rosie’s big sis, then you should do just find to read this as a stand-alone. Dean is a bad-boy manwhore. He is unapologetic about it. I found him extremely entertaining. Rosie has been dealt a bad hand. Life is not easy for her. I didn’t remember disliking her parents in Vicious the way that I disliked them so much in this book. They were assholes. I tried to understand because they were dealt a crappy hand too, but I failed to ever think that they were okay. It made me sad for Rosie. In fact on many occasions throughout reading Rosie had me getting a bit emotional. In the end, I really felt for both Dean and Rosie. I was shocked by a twist of events. I also wanted things to move a tad quicker, but that’s just my taste. The writer always delivers a great book that will keep you invested. Her books are really fabulous and I would highly recommend them.
Louisa’s 4 Blush Review
Dean and Rosie – from the instant their eyes met years ago, there was a connection. One that wouldn’t be acted upon for many, many years later.
Dean- the manwhore that we met in Vicious…
“If it’s corrupted and dirty and fun – I am all over it.”
has set his sights once again on Millie and will take no prisoners making her his..FOREVER.
Rosie -this poor girl has had one heck of a troubled life. She’s determined to make it on her own. Make it in NYC without the help of her parents or sister. But Dean isn’t going to allow that – he wants to care for Millie, financially, spiritually and physically and he’s one determined guy
This book had me tearing up at times and LOL’ing at times.
“You’re breakable Dean Cole. I’m going to do my best to keep you whole.”
I love this author’s writing style, her way of writing has pulled me into these characters and I was cheering for them the whole way through. There are some twists and turns which made me stay up way too late reading, but in my opinion – that’s the sign of a great book!
