Panic by JA Huss
(Rook and Ronin #3)
Publication date: October 24th 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Rook is chasing her dream—film school and a chance at a life beyond the one she ran from six months ago. But before she can become the girl she wants to be, she must deal with the girl she left behind.
Ronin is also chasing his dream—a family of his own and a life away from erotic modeling. And he too, has a past he’s trying to forget. A past that makes Rook question everything about their life together.
Lies, secrets, and shocking truths will rock the foundation Rook and Ronin have built. Can they put the past behind them and move forward together? Or is this just another too good to be true relationship that will crash and burn in the end?

Rook is working through who she was, who she is, and who she wants to be. She has three magnificent men in her life helping her along the way. Ronin, Spencer, and Ford. I like to think of these men connecting with different parts of her personality: her id, ego, and superego. And here’s how my thoughts work out: Ford connects with her Id because that’s her impulsive desire to get her needs met and he’s able to control her and she’s able to submit to his control knowing he’ll make choices that are best for her, almost like a child having their needs taken care of by another…but does she fully submit to him? Her Ego connects with Ronin and bases on reality in that she gets her desires met from her Id but this is done so after weighing the pros and cons of a situation before she reacts impulsively. And finally, her superego I think connects most with Spencer in a moral sense of what is right or wrong based on decisions she’s trying to make. She needs all three of these men and imagining her life without one of them seems unfathomable because she needs each of them in a different way. I’m not gonna lie, I completely disliked Ford in Manic because he seemed extremely cryptic but he’s grown on me as his emotional side has made a 180 since building his relationship with Rook. Panic had my anxiety on sky-high because the past catches up to the team again and they have to work through it some how, some way. Panic had me laughing, crying, and gasping. It was the greatness of both Tragic and Manic but more intense and pleasurable, if I do say so myself. And JA doesn’t and won’t stop here!! You heard me correctly…there’s more to come with the gang/team!! The ending and Epilogue were perfection and have me jonesing for January to get here!!! Give this a try…today!!! Rating: 5 stars
Holy Mother of all page turners!! Panic is fantastic!! A must read!! J.A. Huss, you are a rock star!!!
Panic picks up where Manic leaves off and once again, I was completely caught up in Ronin and Rook’s journey ….and let me just say…..what a journey it was!!! Ronin’s love for Rook is all consuming and that radiates off the pages of Panic.
~ Ronin ~ “My world will never be the same. This girl blew in like the spring wind and whipped me around like a hurricane. She took over my life, she got Spencer to commit to her, she made Ford feel things, Antoine and Elise love her so much they want us to be godparents and she got an entire city to cheer for her and set me free. She is a force. And she’s not done yet, I can feel it. Hurricane Rook is just picking up speed.”
Rook loves Ronin, but her past makes her hesitant, yet there is no denying her love for Ronin.
~ Rook ~ “Ronin Flynn, you are like a door. Not a window where you can see through to the other side and be sure of what’s coming. But a door, still closed and leading to every opportunity imaginable and requiring a leap of faith that the risk is worth it. You are my doorway to endless possibilities and I’m ready to take that risk.”
In my review of Manic, I stated that the jury was still out for me on Ford. Now, I have a new found love for Ford, wicked ways and all. ~ Ronin ~ “I give up. I can’t predict him, I can’t control him, and I can’t compete with him. He’s your weirdo friend now Rook. I wash my hands.” I’m so excited that he’s getting his own book and I can’t wait to read it!!! Spencer gets a book too and I’m equally excited for that one!!!
I also mentioned in my review of Manic, that I wouldn’t mind if the author stirred things up in Panic. Wish granted!!!! From the first page I was hooked. This story/series is like a drug and I can’t get enough!!
5 ~ Tragic ~ Manic ~ Panic ~ Brilliant ~ stars!!!!! Pick up all three and be prepared to be blown away!!!
Tragic and Manic are both now $.99 cents

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 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!
J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).
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.
