(Rook and Ronin, #3)

Genre: New Adult Romance
Rook is chasing her dream—film school and a chance at a life beyond the one she ran from six months ago. But before she can become the girl she wants to be, she must deal with the girl she left behind.
Ronin is also chasing his dream—a family of his own and a life away from erotic modeling. And he too, has a past he’s trying to forget. A past that makes Rook question everything about their life together.
Lies, secrets, and shocking truths will rock the foundation Rook and Ronin have built. Can they put the past behind them and move forward together? Or is this just another too good to be true relationship that will crash and burn in the end?
There are no crazy contracts going with modeling. In fact, Rook’s contract with STURGIS is winding down and she’s not playing her part of running errands for Shrike Bikes for the tv show. Meanwhile, Ronin is back at the studio casting girls for the GIDGET campaign. So the two of them are separated for the majority of the book. However, even though the story starts off like everything is looking on the up and up for these two, the sh*t hits the fan and pretty soon everyone’s world is turned upside down.
I must say that J.A. did a great job with ending this trilogy. She didn’t leave any loose ends. We find out everything that happened with Rook before stumbling into the studio and landing a modeling gig. We also learn more about Ronin, Ford and Spencer. Their past as a “team” that lead Spencer as the muscle, Ford as the brains and Ronin as the front man.
J.A. paced the story beautifully since we get a lot of information in this one and a lot does happen. However, the story never felt rushed or like it went off course. This book was the climatic grand finale for the trilogy. Even though I’m sad to see Rook and Ronin’s story end, I’m happy with how everything ended.
“How did I get here? We’re Three’s Company. Spencer is airhead Chrissy, Ford is international Janet, and I’m pretending to be gay so I don’t notice that you two are roommate eye-candy.”
