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!



My Review

So… Manic. When I finished up Tragic, I could not wait for Manic to arrive. I would have been happy to stand behind J.A. Huss with a whip, demanding she Write more! Right now! Type, type, type.

What I liked:

Ronin is yummy, sexy, protective, hot, and I’m definitely intrigued about this little scheme he has practice at. I think there is a lot we don’t know about Ronin and I can’t wait to find out more in Panic. I loved the descriptions we got of Spencer’s paintings. I could truly see each scene, and that helped me stay immersed throughout the book.

I loved the way it ended. After all the other paintings, I was really worried about how the final exhibit would go, but I think all of Rook’s boys showed their class by the end.

What I didn’t like:

I think this book fell into a sequel trap for me. I had my HEA(ish?) in Tragic, and so I wanted to see Rook and Ronin proceed with world domination. But they didn’t, and I blame Rook. She needs to get her act together, and take more care in how she treats and responds to Ronin, or some other girl is going to sweep her aside and step into her shoes. (Allow yours truly to volunteer.)

Would I recommend it? Absolutely. Although I didn’t enjoy Manic as much as Tragic, I did enjoy it. I think that in Tragic I really enjoyed seeing Rook get to know Ronin, and watching her find her feet. This one felt more like watching her fall apart, and it’s hard to see people you like screw up. Hopefully, in Panic, she’ll get her head screwed on straight and her and Ronin can ride off into their own sunset.

If you haven’t read Tragic yet, you’re in luck. It’s on sale for only 99 cents.

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.
