New author love
Tragic by J.A. Huss
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 is paired up with top model, Ronin, and he’s everything her abusive ex-boyfriend wasn’t. Patient, gentle, happy, attentive, and sexy! He knows exactly what to do to make Rook blush for Antoine’s camera.
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.
Rate & take

I purchased this book on a whim and I am so glad I did. This author is new to me and she writes people so well, the dialog (spoken and internal) never feels forced or fake. The plot feels fresh and none of the main characters are whiny or pity seekers but rather a balance of traits, like most of us. The only bad thing I can say is that I have to wait until August 1st to get book two which will be titled Manic. I look forward to lots more from this author.
