A great new look
Taut: The Ford Book by J.A. Huss
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, 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.

I first got to know Ford in the Rook & Ronin series (click for reviews to books 1,2, & 3) through his own words and the opinions/thoughts of others. I thought I kind of knew some of what the guy was about until this book, where I was given entry into his thoughts and feelings. Now all I can say is wow! What an impression he has made on me, he is so much more than the sum of his parts in the R & R series. Thank you J.A. Huss for writing this satisfying story. There will be more spin off books to come out of the R & R series in the next few months and I am happily anticipating. Good reads are to be cherished when found.
