TAUT IS A STANDALONE NOVEL – you do NOT have to read any of the Rook and Ronin books first.
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 have loved every single book in the Rook and Ronin series, and Taut was no exception. It is a standalone and all about Ford. Poor ol’ Ford! He is in love with his friend’s girlfriend and he decides to leave instead of watch them be together. But, Ford’s issues go much deeper than an unrequited love.
Ford is one of the most flawed characters I have read about recently in a book. On the surface, he seems shallow and sick. J.A. once again has wrote a flawless book and made me empathize with the main character. And, I dare to say that there’s a part of me that likes Ford even more than Ronin! Excellent!!!
