Tragic, Manic, and Panic... this is a must read series! I love the unique story lines and fantastic characters in these books. This may have been the best one of the series... and before I get into my review, Ill tell you why. Its all about this guy...

J.A. Huss has just set the bar and it is set fucking high.

I am completely still stuck on this book, time has passed but each second ticked by without notice. J.A. Huss completes the Rook and Ronin Series in a spectacular fashion. I am not even sure how to process the goodness that was this book.

Rook has completed her Shrike's contract and will be filming for the upcoming reality show for Spencer's shop. She finally has means to live her life,

5 stars!!

Another awesome book in this series!!

I was completely glued to this book and there are such unexpected twists that make you PANIC!
There were some parts that were like watching an action movie!

Lets to go the beginning. Ronin and Rook

"I want him, I love him, and hes mine."

Ronin loves Rook with his whole heart. He wants the whole nine yards with her- the babies and white picket fence. Only Rook isnt at that point yet. She loves Ronin, we know that

This is the third book in the series and I just loved it!! I loved every twist and turn J.A. Huss added to Rook and Ronin's story. Much like the previous books in the series, it is told in alternating povs of both Rook and Ronin.

Ronin wants to settle down. He wants a home, a family and he wants it all with Rook. She is all he needs and all he wants. Ronin learns not to push her to hard. He fears that she will run instead of fighting for their relationship.

Youre my life, Rook. Youre my future,

Just finished at 2AM... does that give you some idea of how much I enjoyed this book.

J.A. Huss created this world and characters who come to life right on the first page. Her style and rhythm is so unique, it left a footprint for me to follow and pick up right away. I didn't need to catch up with the story of the people in it; I felt I had never left them... that they had been around the corner the whole time.

Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed reading this one but I felt I had all sorts of mixed signals.

For Ronin to be a badass he somewhat turned into a puss as well. You are the front man! Act like it!

(5 "I belong to Ronin" stars)

This book continues with Rook and Ronin still working on their relationship, but doing well together. Ronin still wants to be more serious, settle down, and start a family, & Rook still isn't ready to take that next step. She finally deals with her past and begins to heal. We find out a lot about what has happened to her to make her so closed off. In this book Rook and Ronin are separated because of their work schedules and trying to have a long distance

Now that the Strike contract is over, Rook is set to start filming the reality show for Spencer's shop, while Ronin works on the Gidget contract. For Rook life is good, she has plenty of money, Ronin's love, and friends. But she has some secrets she still hasn't dealt with. Will she face her past and find happiness or will she do what she has always done, run?

4.5 stars for this wonderful book! I have fallen in love with this author and of course; this series. Rook and Ronin are a couple that I adore, but also Ford and Spencer are the other main characters in this story that truly make this book the masterpiece that it is. Without them, it just wouldn't be the same at all. I am officially in love with Ford!! In book two when he was introduced, he was such a jerk; but he truly grows on you...and now I want to know more about him, and I want so badly ...more

Panic: 4--Team FORD--Stars!
Rook and Ronin series: 4.5--Different-Sexy-Fun--Stars!!

This was a solid end to the series. I must say though I felt somewhat of a disconnect between this book in the series and the previous two books. It just didn't have the same vibe/feel/theme or something to me.

Manic ended with Rook spotting her first love Wade. But when Panic picked up that was all kind of skipped over. It took me a minute to get the timeline down and figure out what was going on.

Ronin Flynn, you are my forever guy. Id just like to say that right now. You are my forever guy.


Rook is the girl that is used to running away.

Ronin is the guy that finally caught her.

Will they have a chance to a future? Or will Rook's fears and insecurities and Ronin's secrets and past cons get in the way?

Clare is also back and she has her own agenda and the FBI is sniffing around.





This book had one STAR and this was the arrogant, infuriating, disturbed, cocky and
Fan-flipping-tastic! I loved this whole bloody trilogy, I loved Rook, Ronin, Spencer and Ford - what a great team they made in the aftermath of the Sturgis contract and the downfall of Jon.

As in the last book there were quite a few twists and turns which kept me on the edge of my sofa, a few hot scenes and some great chemistry.

Very much looking forward to Ford and Spencers stories and hoping we get a bit of a glimpse into R&Rs future.

First of all, I just have to say WOW!!!!!!





Are you tired of reading the same old romance story? Looking for something exciting and different? Well then look no further than the Rook & Ronin Series (Tragic, Manic, and Panic)!

Tragic (Rook and Ronin, #1) by J.A. Huss Manic (Rook and Ronin, #2) by J.A. Huss Panic (Rook and Ronin, #3) by J.A. Huss

These books captivated me from beginning to end. Each one was even better than the next! Tragic was an awesome book Manic was even more amazing, especially since Ford and Spencer were added to the mix

Loved It... I loved how Rook and Ronin series ended but when I read that heart was breaking!!!!! Ahhh.. now I need to read Slack and Taut asap!

Youll never even have to wonder if Ill be there, because Ill show the fuck up before that thought can even cross your mind. I want you, Ronin, and Ill risk everything for you. I will never walk out

Amazing series.

This is the final book in this series and it's the best so far and that's saying something because the previous two have been amazing.
This is an emotional book, with Jon behind them Rook is free, or is she, she's still not faced and come to terms with her past but she's forging ahead with her dream of Film School with the help of Ford, she's signed on for the Sturgis reality show while Ronin is managing the Gidget contract so distance is a factor, while Rook is in Fort Collins

10 Freaking Stars if ever a book deserved them!

Sizzle Factor: 3.5/5

So I have been almost a little confused reading Tragic, Manic and Panic (Rook and Ronin series)
I have never read a book that had this type of plot. It's the most unique story I've ever read. Yes there is some sex and a lot of sexual situations. There is just something so different about it that I was like not able to put it down. I only rated books 1 and 2 a 4 because of all the unanswered
Finished this late last night. Review to come...when I feel I can do it justice. Epic.

Okay, I've thought for a bit and I'm still seeing stars.

This book is without a doubt one of the best books I've ever read.


The entire series is phenomenal (if you haven't read them yet then you NEED!) but Panic blows Tragic and Manic right out of the water.

I'm totally fangirling.

J.A. Huss is amazingly talented. Her characters (especially Rook, Ronin, Spencer, and Ford) are so real, and
Melissa ***BITCH, I'M READING!***
This was my least fave book in this series so far.. I kinda lost interest when all the "con-man, super genius" shit started. then with the sex slave stuff.. it just became too much.. and sorta "half-assed" if you ask me.. like the author is trying to create depth, but failing.. miserably..

there's all this build up for the "big moments" and when they finally happen they're over in like.. two seconds... in the simplest ways

I hate Claire and the way Ronin is with her.. the way he is always
Jen O'grady
The conclusion to the Rook and Ronins trilogy, and it's a corker.
It's all there love, angst, humour and sex in the shower oh and cherry action too!
The story concludes with complete revaluation of Rooks life with Jon.
It's brilliant there are no other words for it, and what makes it so brilliant is that I'm sure like every other reader you just want more of the team, and that's what we are promised Fords story and then Spencer's, pure genius! And I for one am team team ford all the way!!

Man oh man I was scared to read this third installment of Rook and Ronin's story after reading the blurb, I so didn't want to see these two not make it. With that bitchy Clare and manipulative Ford, it was touch and go for one of my favorite couples.

We left Rook and Ronin in at the end of book two going their separate ways for work. I went ahead and read the last chapter of book two to be ready, but just wasted my time as it is chapter one of PANIC. I absolutely love that JA Hauss had the

I really enjoyed both Tragic and Manic, but Panic takes it to a totally different level. I loved panic! I was in a modo where I struggled through books and it took me from 5-7 days to read a book and then I picked up Panic and read it in 3 days. I just couldn't put it down and it's the best ending to a series and leaves me wanting to read more. I can't wait to read the spin-offs for this series.

Panic takes off some time after Manic ends and actually

If you haven't read Tragic and Manic, WTH?!? Go get them now!! ;) But seriously, my review may not make sense in some places if you haven't read the first two may even be a bit spoiler-y. So read on at your own risk. :)

I swear my highlighter/bookmark function smokes from overuse when I'm reading one of Ms. Huss' books. There are always so many poignant and meaningful moments and quotes that I have to record! One of my favorite things about Ms. Huss' writing is her character and plot
