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 goods are on display, and you’ve got Manic—a new adult contemporary romance that will definitely make your summer sizzle!

Manic is the second book in the Rook and Ronin series by J.A. Huss. If you haven't read Tragic yet, I highly suggest you do so, and check out my review of Tragic too! Rook is having some regrets about signing the Sturgis contract. I think Ronin's heart is in the right place, but he still needs to work on his priorities. He has a completely unexpected side to him too. As far as their relationship is concerned, they still have a lot to figure out together. Spencer is still my favorite. He was more down to business in this book. We also met a new character, Ford, who I'm very curious about. He's an interesting and odd character, but I think I like him too. At least so far, I like him. Manic seemed more drama based this time around. There was less romance and less anticipation, but more suspense and more has been added to the plot. It was a good, strong story all around. I enjoyed it very much.
The ARC of Manic by J.A. Huss was provided to me by the Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.
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.
