Blog Tour: Panic (Rook and Ronin #3) By : J.A. Huss, Review and Giveaway

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars!
Published: October 15th, 2013
Book Blurb:

Rook is chasing her dream—film school and a chance at a life beyond the one she ran from six months ago. But before she can become the girl she wants to be, she must deal with the girl she left behind.

Ronin is also chasing his dream—a family of his own and a life away from erotic modeling. And he too, has a past he’s trying to forget. A past that makes Rook question everything about their life together.

Lies, secrets, and shocking truths will rock the foundation Rook and Ronin have built. Can they put the past behind them and move forward together? Or is this just another too good to be true relationship that will crash and burn in the end?

My Thoughts:

I was definitely excited and ready to get into a series that when I start the book I know to plan on being sucked into the story, I have to admit that Panic completely surprised me with where this one went but, in a good way. We have all of the characters that we have grown to know and love show up which is always for me like seeing old friends and I was so excited to jump back into their lives.

Rook is moving up to Spencer Shrike's bike shop in Fort Collins, Colorado to shoot the first season of the reality show about the shop and Rook is going to be the receptionist and parts girl. Ford will be joining her and Spencer in FoCo but, Ronin who is beginning work on the Gidget campaign. So much is changing and Rook seems ready to embrace it all.

Each book I feel like Rook is getting stronger and stronger and putting her past behind her and  I always feel so proud of her because I always believe that she is strong then I could have ever been. She is still pursuing her dream of film school and she is going  to community college and finally getting to do with her life what she has always wanted to do and deserved.

We get a lot more Ford in this one, I don't really know how I feel about him, he really did help rook throughout Manic and Panic but, I knew he didn't have honorable intentions so I don't think that I could ever really get behind his character completely. I think the fact that I never trusted him might have something to do with it. Although by the end I did warm up to his character a bit.

The books is told from Ronin's POV and Rook's but, I felt like we got a bit less Ronin in this one then we did in the other books. I did miss him but, I loved the parts that he was in and getting to see inside his head a bit and also getting to see Rook through his eyes.

Panic was another great addition to this series and I loved where it went throughout this book I felt like we learned so much more about all of the characters and some of the lingering questions we had were finally got answered and Rook really stood out the most in this one and I felt so proud of her. 


Tragic by J.A. Huss
Publication date:  May 20th 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Rook Walsh is TRAGIC

Because life so far – just sucks.  Some girls get parents.  Rook got the foster care system.  Some girls get Prince Charming.  Rook got an abusive frog.  Some girls get lucky…

Rook got a second chance.

And she took it.  Because when fate throws you a bone – you grab it with both hands and run.

Antoine Chaput knows the minute he spies Rook in his photography studio that she’s got The Look.  The dark and desperate look he must have to land the exclusive TRAGIC media contract.

Rook is paired up with top model, Ronin, and he’s everything her abusive ex-boyfriend wasn’t. Patient, gentle, happy, attentive, and sexy!  He knows exactly what to do to make Rook blush for Antoine’s portfolio.

Rook’s luck changes in an instant and suddenly she’s the darling of the modeling world.  It’s a dream job to go with a dream guy and all she has to do is look pretty and follow directions. But there’s always a price to pay – and Rook is about to get the bill.

TRAGIC is a new adult contemporary romance.


Manic by J.A. Huss
Series: Rook and Ronin #2
Publication date: August 1st 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

TRAGIC is over and Rook is ready for the future—Spencer Shrike and the STURGIS contract!

It’s three months of body art modeling! That means three months of Spencer Shrike’s paintbrush all over her body, three months in front of Antoine’s camera, and three months of twenty-four hour filming for Spencer’s Biker Channel reality show.

Wait a minute…what reality show? Maybe she should’ve read that STURGIS contract a little closer? ;)

Sure, Rook’s bank account is almost overflowing, but Ronin is angry, Clare is trying to escape rehab, Antoine is a worried mess, and Elise is just trying to hold everyone together. Her new family is about to fall apart before she even gets the chance to enjoy them.

Add in a mysterious man from her past, a road trip to the famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and a final show in front of the entire world where all her good are on display, and you’ve Manic—a new adult contemporary romance that will definitely make your summer sizzle!


J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.
