Publisher Description

Must she choose between love and money?

Or can Rook get both?


I get it. Stripping naked and letting your boyfriend's best friend paint your body in order to sell custom motorcycles isn't the ideal way to start a brand-new relationship.

Add in a TV reality show, another best friend who seems determined to make me notice him, and the little fact that in order to get paid I will have to strut my stuff in public wearing nothing but body paint.

Yeah. There's not a chance in hell that Ronin is going to be OK with all this.


It feels like everyone is trying to break us apart. Spencer with his stupid body painting contract. Ford with his stupid TV show contract. My sister and her boyfriend's niece constantly calling me for help. Even Rook seems determined to stop our love before it starts with all the bad decisions she's making.

But I'm not the kind of man who walks away.

I'm actually the kind of man who sticks around.

I don't care how against-the-odds we are—I'll fight for us.

Even if she won't.

Manic is book two in the Rook & Ronin series and features Rook getting naked in front of tons of hot men, body paint being applied to the most inappropriate places, and a whole gang of people ready to let go of the past and look towards the future. It's a story about love, and second chances. About friends who become family. And most of all, learning to live with who you are.

Great Series

Rook and Ronin series, book 2, is a great fun read. Characters are engaging, settings and
events are unusual but feel true.

The summary of the book is already confusing. The book starts off with the assumption that readers read the first book in the series. The book gives no background or context to readers who just picked up the second book in the 8 book series.

Most horrible heroine ever

Book 1 was just BEARABLE because the heroine was made to be homeless and went through a whole lot of abuse SO technically she's supposed to be a little cynical which is fine but she was ALL too good for them when all they tried to do was help her? And then she had to whine and act like a fricking whiny 5 year old girl who couldn't appreciate the good things that were handed to her. Unappreciative, spoiled as in she wanted choices when she's not even up to par, still complained when she was given things/job/place to stay/food. OMG the list goes on. And then she went and signed a contract without going through anything after feeling compromised with the first one??WHO does that. Unrealistic and most annoying heroine ever. I could not even get pass 2nd book. It was a pain to get through the first one!
