Ford Aston is not too picky about what he wants out of Christmas. He's not into this holiday - like at all. He doesn't do presents or family dinners or parties or church.
He does pets. And he's got one lined up for Christmas Eve. In fact it's the highlight of his day. And if he can get through drop-in visits, nosy 12-year-olds, an inappropriate conversation with his best friend's girlfriend, dinner with a family that's not his, and a party at his mother's house - well, he might just get home in time to enjoy himself with a stranger and make it all okay.
Ford Aston is known for many things. Being an emotionless, messed up bastard, a freakishly smart social outcast, and a cold, domineering master who keeps "pets" instead of girlfriends.
And after Rook broke his heart, he plans to keep it that way.
Ashleigh is known for nothing, and that's exactly what she's got going for her. She's broke and stranded in the mountains with a three-month-old baby, and Ford Aston is screwing with her head.
And she plans to mess with his right back.
It's a coy game at first, filled with flirting and innuendo - but Ford soon realizes something is not quite right with Ashleigh. In fact something is seriously, seriously wrong, and the closer they get to their final destination, the closer Ford gets to the truth.
One night of devastation, self-loathing, and emptiness turns into the best thing that ever happened to Ford Aston. But one day of in-your-face reality threatens Ashleigh's whole existence.
Best JA HUSS EVER!
I’m speechless. This was the most touching, thoughtful, nail-biting, erotic story with the BEST CHARACTERS EVER.
It’s crucial to read/listen to the first three rook and ronin books (which are also fab minus you the nauseatingly nasal and whiney female narrator). I just LOVE FORD. And for the first time ever - Huss just knocked it out of the park with Ash, the female lead. I had tears from the get-go amid between great BDSM (mild) and thoroughly HAWT sex scenes once they got there.
5 stars isn’t enough praise. ITS A MUST!❤️
This book made me get audio! Best thing I’ve invested in for a LONG TIME
Get this book it’s so well written
