Rook is chasing her dream—film school and a chance at a life beyond the one she left behind 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?

The Rook and Ronin series has been one of the best New Adult series I've read this year. It's full of hot and steamy scenes, but it also full of a lot of secrets, danger, twists and turns that you never see coming. I never saw anything that happened in Panic coming. My jaw dropped on countless occasions and I was on edge all the way through this book.

Discovering more about Rook's past is what I loved most about this book. I loved that we got to understand her more and found out everything she was trying to hide. Rook's past was even more disturbing and horrific than I'd thought. Everything that Jon put her through was horrific and disgusting. He took advantage of a young naive girl who had no where else to go and it made me sick when I found out what he'd done to her. Rook's life is so messed up because of him. He put her through some traumatic events that I don't think she'll ever be able to recover from.

I've always loved Ronin, but I did start to doubt him in this one. After everything that was said about him and that we were learning about him, I was actually starting to wonder whether we'd seen the real Ronin or not. But you could tell that Ronin's feelings towards Rook were genuine and he just wants to protect her. He was lying to her in and I wish he'd just told her the truth instead of trying to hide it. But I'll always love Ronin. He's so sweet and protective.

Uncovering what Ronin, Ford and Spencer did was interesting as well. I enjoyed seeing what they were part of and what they've done. Some of it was shocking but they were only doing what they thought was for the best. 

Fucking Ford was always trying to worm his way into Rook's life and I just wanted to punch him throughout this whole book. I can't believe what he kept trying to do! I hated him so damn much!

The whole story surrounding Jon and what he did was fascinating. It was so much bigger than I'd ever imagined! The big reveal at the end was brilliant and I was so happy that everyone got what was coming to them because they deserved it after all the horrible stuff they did.

I was so happy to see Rook and Ronin together at the end and I just know they have a long future ahead of them, and I hope that they'll finally be able to get on with their lives without anymore complications.

Overall, this was such a fantastic end to the Rook and Ronin series. It was full of action, suspense and so many damn surprises that I never saw coming! I absolutely love this series and I definitely recommend it if you're a fan of New Adult novels.

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.
