Tragic Book Blog Tour - Review

Tragic by J.A. Huss
Publication date:  May 20th 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Rook Walsh is TRAGIC

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 portfolio.

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.

TRAGIC is a new adult contemporary romance.



J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

My Review...

I wasn't sure about this book but once I got hooked I was swallowed whole by Rook and Ronin.

Rook's life is the definition of tragic.
Until luck intervenes
With luck she meets Ronin
Who is instantly drawn to Rook but sees inside her and wants for her to have so much better than she has already been given
Rook is drawn to Ronin but her past keeps her away to protect her heart however they have a chemistry that can't be denied.
Rook takes a job that is not right for her but she needs the money to give her a sense of freedom but with this job comes so many more things that she may not be able to handle.

The more she gets drawn into this world the more she finally starts to open up and let Ronin in.
But this story is left with Rook trying to find harmony within herself and her new life.

I really liked this story and I can't wait to find out what happens next.  My fingers are crossed for Rook & Ronin

4 tragic thumbs up!
