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’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 right, everything about this story is tragic. The world of modeling, or so-called modeling, is a flash in the pan of short lived money and fame. It can eat you alive and you will have nothing left. But so can being a foster kid throwaway in an abusive relationship. Rook has run from one world into another, one she has no idea how to navigate. But Ronin can help her, right? But can he be trusted?
I have to admit, I was just reading along passing the day and suddenly realized that I was totally sucked into the story and can't wait to find out what happens to them. Huss's writing style has a way of just pulling you into the story with an easy flow and characters I actually became emotionally invested in. And thankfully, I'm a little late discovering these so I can go right on to part 2 and 3 without waiting! J.A. Huss has become one of my new favorites!!
