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.

Panic by J.A. Huss
(Rook and Ronin #3)
Publication date: October 24th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


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 Review

5 of 5 Panic

First off I have to say J.A. thanks for the best roller coaster mind f%^& in the world! Man I could not put this book down. I mean lord help me Jesus I was ready to pull my hair out in clumps with all the roller coaster feelings I was going through. I loved every minute of it and Rook she has grown up in so many ways and I loved her character development because in the beginning she is naive and she just did some things that really annoyed me but then after reading everything she went through with her ex I said dam that girl is a survivor and she did right by herself. She chased her dream and never let anyone get in the way of what she wanted.

Ronin oh man I loved him so much in this book because like Rook we got to see what he really wanted out of life and where he was heading. He made a lot of mistakes along the way but he was ready to face them and move on. He wanted to start a family and a new life but he knew he would have to come face to face with his past and when he did the secrets and the lies that came out were crazy but at the end of the day he was able to be himself and love himself.

Another player in this crazy series was Ford. Man oh man I can't say enough about Ford because he is every womens dream man. He is loving, caring, and kind and he is just the glue to hold things together. What he went through with each book just made me love him even more because he loves Rook but he is not pushy about his feelings. He just sits back and waits until the right time to reveal his feelings. I can't wait to get more about Ford because I need to know what he was feeling and what made him realize that wanting something and having something is two different things.



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.
