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!
Honestly, what more can I say about Manic that hasn't already been said. I mean, if you haven't already been reading this series you are totally missing out and you need to get your copy of Tragic right now and get to reading. I mean, seriously where have you been because these books keep getting better and better.
I know some reviews have stated that they didn't like the problems that Rook seemed to be going through and I will admit that it was hard watching her make mistakes, however it made her much more real for me and relatable. I knew how she was feeling when she wasn't treating Ronin as she should have because I feel like I am in that boat right now. Relationships are confusing and messed up sometimes but honestly I think she is going to see the error of her ways and get her act together. Sometimes you have to really mess up in order to learn from your mistakes and in Rooks case I think that is how it is going to go. I do agree that she totally needs to get her act together before Ronin takes his act somewhere else.
I'm loving how the hot and sexiness of everything from Tragic has boiled over into Manic and I hope that it continues in Panic. I want more Ronin and I want to know more about him. Yes, I love the mystery behind him but we can't live on mystery and intrigue alone. I also want to see Rook evolve more. In the first book she was finding her own and getting away from some really bad stuff and now she seemed confused about how she really wanted everything to go. She has been thrown through loops and so now it's time for things to work out and for her and Ronin to live a hot and steamy life together.
So, if you are wondering ... I would totally recommend this book. I have been actually. I have been telling my girlfriends all about Rook and Ronin and even have a few of them hooked already. It's one of those hot and sexy books that you don't want to put down because you are afraid of what Rook and Ronin might do while you're gone. tee hee ;)

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.

About the Author
J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing.

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.
