“The first rule of Shrike Club is never talk about Shrike Club.

It’s no secret that the Rook & Ronin series is a favorite of mine. I love these books. The first three were amazing. Then we get the Ford and Spencer spin offs, which are even better in my opinion! Yes, if you haven’t read these books you MUST! Guns is not a standalone. You should read the entire series before jumping into this book.

Be prepared- Guns has the funny, sexy and original story line like the

SPENCER- "Who's the motherf*cking boss"


Team Spencer, Team Ford, that is the question? Most of my Ford-loving friends read this book and jumped shipped. He is an intriguing man but the magic of Ford is unmatched for me. Never once did I waiver towards Spencer while reading this story. Looking back through my highlights I realized that I only highlighted Ford's parts.

Wow! What an ending for Spencer and his Bomb!!

[image error]

The team, which consists of everyone but Veronica, is in some serious hot water. Spencer is still staying course with his push away in order to protect the woman of his dreams plan, although things get pretty crazy.


Once again, Veronica’s pain and confusion is brutal and it seems her new girlfriends are in on the secrets too.

Spencer Shrike is living in Fort Collins preparing for the grand opening of the new Shrike's Bikes store. He is almost 24, and has been living the dream professionally, with his bike shops, and show.

Personally Spencer feels like his life is in limbo. He is waiting for the trial, and everything to be resolved with his team, and then feels he can move on with his life, and put all the bad behind him.

"I've wanted you since the day I laid eyes on you. You know that."


Finally, Spencer and Ronnie's book!! I seriously love these two, and their story does not disappoint. Spencer always has a plan. And Veronica has always been a major part of it, but in order to keep her safe from his questionable past, he has kept his distance.

"I've kept Ronnie away from all this bullshit for a reason. And that reason is so we can spend our lives together. And I'm done waiting. It's my turn to get what I want."
*J* Too Many Books Too Little Time

What a conclusion. The grand finale. The ending of one chapter and the beginning of another.

Ronin has Rook. Ford has Ashleigh and Kate. Now it's time for Spencer to get his Bombshell.

Ronnie/Veronica/Bombshell/Bomb fell in love with Spencer Shrike the day she met him. They had a whirlwind love affair.

"Spencer walked into my life, tipped me upside down, and shook the love right out of me. My love spills out all over the place. My love piles up at his feet."

There are some things you wish for... things you cannot wait to have... but then it is bittersweet... because once you have them... the experience is over. Waiting for GUNS: The Spencer Book was like waiting for those special times for me. This book brings all of the intrigue, relationships and answers to a close... of sorts.... for the Rook and Ronin series.

Wow..these books just keep getting better and better. First there were Rook and Ronin and I thought they were awesome. Then came Ford and Ash and I liked them and their book better and now...Spencer and Ronnie. Their book was the best!

I absolutely loved this one. Veronica is one of my most favorite heroines of all time..and that's saying something, since I have a hard time finding heroines that I like. She was hard as nails..but she had a soft side to her. I felt so sorry for her

Wow...GUNS was just PERFECT to conclude and tie in the Rook and Ronin series and spin offs. If you don’t know who Rook, Ronin, Ford, Ashleigh, Spencer and Veronica are, then what are you waiting for. I highly recommend you do because you do not want to miss out on the madness, craziness, sexy romance, and wild ride this TEAM takes you on.

Spencer is a deceiving son of a bitch.

Tramping around town ignoring Veronica, treating her like trash, leaving her high and dry (especially in the alleyway), and breaking her heart by being a callous bastard, he pissed me off! And despite all this, I positively fell in love with the cocky, deceitful phony. Why?
Perfection, I loved this finale. Best series ever. Nothing more I can say...

Spencer Shrike, you've earned a piece of my heart!!
Throughout the entire Rook & Ronin, and Ford series, I never really gave a second thought to Spencer but in "GUNS" we finally get his and BOMB's story and it's pretty damn amazing.
Spencer is definitely all ALPHA and HOT as hell!!!
He's sacrificed and suffered far more than his friends.
Spencer has had to push Ronnie away in order to keep her safe from his enemies.

OMFG I don’t know what to say. There is so much I want you to know. I assume if you’re reading this review you’ve read all the Rook & Ronin books, because you can’t just jump in with this book. So you know how great this series is. What you don’t know yet, is how great this finale is.

I know some of you fell for Spencer way back in book 1. I’ll be honest. I was so distracted by Ronin, then Ford that I didn’t pay much attention to Spencer. He was in this long term relationship with Veronica.

5 Spencer Shrike and the "Bomb" Stars!

Dear Lord, Spencer Shrike is my kinda of man! I am so damn happy that he and Ronnie, the "bomb," finally got their story!

This is such an adrenalin rush in a culmination of three friend's lives that have come full throttle to the breaking point. In the tangled web of lies and survival.. Rook/Ronin, Asleigh/Ford, and Spencer have become a team. Everything they have done is to start over...have a clean slate and a future together! In this mess of deceit,

This book is not a standalone and should not be read until you have read all of the books in this amazing series. The series starts with book one which is Tragic. You will not regret reading this series it sucks you in from the very beginning.

Once in a while there comes a book series that just captures your attention, draws you in, and occupies your thoughts for days, weeks, and even months. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it is nothing short of magical. This series, all seven books about these fascinating characters and their complicated lives of lies and secrets, love and fate, have a place in my heart and mind forever.

How do I even go into reviewing "Guns" without getting a little emotional? Not only did this author give me Spencer Shrike's story (which was brilliant by the way) but she also gave me an explosive, amazing, perfect ending to what has got to be one of my all time favourite series ever.... FACT!!! I loved the way Spencer's story linked so perfectly
JA Huss is one of those authors I will drop everything to read. I could not WAIT to get my hands on Guns.

First of all, I fell in love with Ronin when I read the Rook & Ronin series. But then when I read Slack and Taut - Ford just stole the show. He became my favorite, easily.

I was very curious if Spencer could top Ford.

Spencer is the muscle of the team. But he isn't just strong. He's protective. And he wants to protect his bombshell.

He's in love with Veronica. But he sure has a funny way

This is the end of it, my friends. The finale. The big boom. The last book in the series. /sadface Before you venture further, before you click "Read More", you should know that THIS is not a standalone novel. This brings it all together. This connects the dots. This is where it ends. You need to read up on the team, which means you need to read the novels previous.

First, I just need to have a bit of a fangirl moment... Okay, now with that out of the way, let us talk about the book. I'm not sure where to even begin with this review! I can't even begin to say what a fantastic read this was! As much as I loved it, I hated to read it at the same time. I felt like I was saying goodbye to long time friends. No one likes to do that. Guns was a bittersweet read for me. One that will stick with me long after I've read it. I will

It was hard for me to rate this one actually. A lot of my rating has to do with enjoying the series as a whole not really just this book. In the previous books I liked Spencer. He was funny and a bad ass biker. And I liked Veronica too, she was a bad ass too and she had so much attitude and personality. So naturally I assumed that I would love their story. And that wasn't really the case. It was ok, but it fell short for me. It made me actually dislike Spencer and Veronica. Spencer was an ass ...more

From the very beginning, I knew that of the three on The Team - Ronin, Ford and Spencer - that Spencer was my favorite.

And now I know why.

All of the posturing and scheming and manipulating have led up to this moment. Ronin, Ford and Spencer formed an ace Robin Hood-esque Team years ago, which allowed them to steal from rich jerks who hurt others. Instead of giving their riches to the poor, however... they kept it. And now the culmination of two jobs gone wrong - one where Spencer killed a man
