Fifty million books ago I promised you a love story about Five and his Princess.
This is their story.

Five Aston has known Rory Shrike for as long as he can remember. He played with her in the sandbox. He went to every damn horse show just to be supportive. He helped her with her French, walked her home from school, and faked his test scores just to stay with her a little

DeAnna Keep in mind that Five takes place some 15 years before the Misters. But I think if you understand all the characters it can be read before or after.

Never has a second chance meant so much to a boy who loves a girl.

FIVE. Fucking FIVE Aston. How long have we all been waiting for this book?!?! I, for one, have been waiting a long time! Ford is my most favorite JA Huss character, so I couldn’t contain my excitement when I finally got his son, Five’s book on my kindle! This story was full of romance, mystery, sexy times, and that twisty story-line that Julie does so well!

1272 days ago this journey began for me. 1272 days ago a character was introduced, at the time I had no idea what would come, if anything would come of him, but I just knew that I wanted his story. And it was always the story of Five and his Princess. Never was there another option.

Ever since six year old Five told Aunt Ronnie "Ill take it from here" and grabbed ahold of Princess Rory Shrikes hand, I've been obsessed with getting their story. It was so freaking adorable and I wanted to just bask in their love because you just knew it was going to be epic.

The next thing we learn about these two is Rory goes missing from college and Five being called in to clean up the Misters. The pieces we got of these two throughout the Mister series had my stomach in knots! What happened

Rutherford Aston the fifth. FIVE ASTON. FIVE. FIVE. FIVE. FIVE. FIVE. Yes, big bold shouty caps are needed because Julie Huss finally delivered everyone’s much anticipated story of Five and his bombshell princess, Rory Shrike. And boy oh boy did she deliver!!!

Wow Most of that was unexpected. The fact that nobody knew WTF was going on w/ Five & RORY. Did not buy that @ all..

That was the ENDING??

Wow. Just wow. I've said it so many times you are probably tired of reading it, but fffuuuuuuccccckkkkkkkk. JA Huss is beyond freaking brilliant. I can't even begin to describe the ride i just went on, but I'll see what I can do. Because really? It's #FuckingFive and I've been waiting for him since he made his appearance in Guns. We knew he'd be amazing as soon as he took his Princess's hand and told Aunt Ronnie that he would take it from there.

Once upon a time there was a Princess named Rory who gave her heart very early on in her young life to a boy with a most unusual name, Rutherford Aston the Fifth, aka Five. He became her protector and the two of them were inseparable. Their history has always included each other from playing together as tots to young teens falling in love. But as we know, love isn't easy and life can be full of obstacles.

Where do I begin? To say I've wanted Five and Rory's book forever is an understatement. This is Five Fucking Rutherford Aston. This was a quick and entertaining read. It answered some big questions for me, but of course, also added more questions. And there's no doubt that this story isn't over. More will come.

I did a quick listen of this fantastic book over the weekend while on a road trip with my SIL.

It was the perfect way to pass the time in the car. I mean, who better to spend your afternoon with than Five Motherfucking Aston?

No one (unless it's Spencer Shrike, but that's not the point here).

And Five's love for Rory is the sweetest love, it's the purest love, it's the love that surpasses time.

I think I enjoyed this book more on audio. There's just something about hearing these characters come t

(audiobook) It starts as a new adult romance--he left, she’s angry, he comes back years later and tries to apologize--but becomes something more. Expect gun fights and lots of other surprises that I can’t reveal. Let’s just say that Rutherford Aston V aka Five is a very interesting character with a very interesting life.

But one thing is more important than the others in Five’s life--Rory. He’s loved her since they were kids, and he knows that she’ll have his children, but his life keeps getting

F**king Five ...... f**king brilliant!!!! Wow, wow, wow. This book really was something special! Rutherford Aston V and Aurora Shrike: it was fate. It was destiny. It was meant to be. It was written in the goddamn stars from the day they were born that they would be together. And from the moment six year old Five took Rory's hand and told her mother " I'll take it from here," he would spend the rest of his life doing everything in his power to protect his princess, even if that mean

Woah what a ride! I didn't know whether I was coming or going most of the time, but despite the fast-pace of this story, I did enjoy it and would recommend it to fans of the Rook & Ronin series.

Five is a child genius, son of Ford Aston, he gets accepted to Oxford University at the tender age of 15. Rory, daughter of Spencer, is his childhood sweetheart. After a separation of 6 years, Five is back in the US and Rory is wondering why he hasn't been in touch all this time.

Rory and Five was a story I couldn’t wait to read. Within the first few pages it dawned on me I should have refreshed my memory on their backgrounds before embarking on this book. To have researched thoroughly, I would have needed to shut myself off for a good spell. Five is a spin off or connected to the following series:

-Rook and Ronin

-Dirty, Dark, and Deadly

I just finished reading this and I have such a whirlwind of emotions going through me. One second I feel so sad that it's over, then I feel such tremendous love for this iconic couple that I have been waiting so long to meet. I feel overwhelmed by what happens in this story, and I suddenly feel so hollow, because these two people consumed me heart and soul for the past two days, and now it's done. I'm done reading.

“We’re not people, Rory. We’re made of moonlight, and twinkling stars, and the night.”

Oh yes F*ckin FIVE is back. He was a storm with a mission of destruction and lust. I consumed this book so quickly, I had finally got my barrings and it was over. But the feels and oohs were worth the crash and lovely burn. You get a Company update. So many references, I found myself researching the who and the what of the Shrike Bike World. I almost want to re-read everything in it's new order.

3 stars. Not what I expected, but it was entertaining. A bit all over the place, lots of talking in circles with soap opera pretend reveals that never came until the end and some not at all. Smoke and mirrors. And a lot of far fetched storylines. But, that's what we pay for when we buy a Huss book. It's always a crazy ride. Five and Rory's love story was great. It was absolutely my favorite part. 5 stars for that. I would have loved to see more of them. Even as flashbacks.

Whatever you thought you knew about Five and Rory...think again.
Did they love each other, oh yeah, that's a given, with a love so true it puts every other romance I've ever read to shame, but in true J.A. Huss fashion, expect the unexpected.
Whatever it is you thought you had figured out, you didn't.

Five is brilliant, Rory is a fighter. I was blind-sided more than once with the turn of events.
I absolutely love these characters.

I had quit this author awhile ago, but then there was this promise of FIVE AND A BONUS OF FORD. So bought this book I did. The author states this is a standalone book, but it absolutely is not. If you did not read Rook and Ronin and the Come series and all the spinoffs of these, you will be lost for sure. Much to my dismay the author decided to attach Five to another series to get you to buy that entire series too which I have no desire to read.

Wow. Just Wow. So bleeping good. I haven't read a make-me-evil-grin book likes this in month. I was hooked from the first pages. There needs to be more writers like Julie. I'm sure they're out there, and I need to find them.
This book is an equal mix of sweet and company. Good and it evil? Nah. At one point I wondered why I was gunning for this group, but it all shakes out.

This might in fact be my absolute new favorite JA Huss book. And that's really saying something from me. I've been waiting for Five and Princess Rory's story for years. Ever since they were kids and we knew that not only were they soulmates, but that world domination was going to be their game. This book did not disappoint. It was everything we've been promised and more.

I love, love stories especially second chances. I love the way Five called Rory princess, Rory use to love begin called princes but that was along time ago she now wants to be his queen. I enjoy books that take you for a roller coaster ride loved Five and Rory as a couple, enjoyable 5 star read for me.
