Blog Tour (Review) & Giveaway: GUNS by J.A. Huss

Welcome to my stop in the GUNS by J.A. Huss Blog Tour :D!!! I can't believe this is the end of the Rook & Ronin Series :(. I'm going to miss all of these characters, but I hope there will be more novellas about these characters. For my stop you can read my 5 Star Review of Guns and enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post.

GUNS:The Spencer BOOK (Rook and Ronin Spinoff) By JA Huss
Published March 31, 2014
Contemporary Romance, New Adult-ish, Suspense


Spencer Shrike is a man with a plan. Get in. Get out. Move on. He loves Ron the Bomb, and her safety is the only thing on his mind these days. But life is a tricky bastard, and conning criminals for the better part of ten years brings its own set of problems. Sure, Rook lied her way out of a sticky situation, covering for crimes Ronin, Ford, and Spencer committed, and getting them all off scot-free in the process.

But not everyone is buying Rook’s story, and Spencer is desperate to figure out who’s in town setting them up for a fall.

Veronica the Bombshell Vaughn has put up with Spencer Shrike’s shit for years and where has it gotten her? A big fat nowhere. No ring, no house, no kids, and no promises. In fact, Spencer is worse than ever—completely distant and moody. She’s done sitting at home, pining over a man she can’t have.

But she’s not opposed to fighting for him.

Ron the Bomb fights hard and she fights dirty, so she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get Spencer’s attention.

But now there’s another man in town with his eye on her. He’s got secrets too, but unlike Spencer, Bobby Mansi is more than willing to let Veronica in on them.

The entire Rook and Ronin series comes full circle. Every con, every lie, and every skeleton in the closet is back for one final shot at vengeance and the only way to set it right…  is to get out the guns.

My Thoughts:
This was one hell of a ride and journey with all of these amazing characters :D!!!! I loved reading Rook and Ronins story in the Rook & Ronin series, and getting the chance to meet Spencer, Veronica, and Ford in the series. But I was ecstatic when J.A. Huss released the news that both Ford and Spencer were getting their own story, because even though they are secondary characters they stood out and grow on you. Now, GUNS was Spencer and Veronica's story and it was just an explosive hot sexy ride with a twist you never see coming :D!

A quick note: You should read the ROOK & RONIN series before reading GUNS, because J.A. Huss raps up the whole story of all the characters in GUNS.

Spencer Shrike ladies is a hot body painter, dirty talking cavemen and biker!!! If you are offended by curse words, then you should mentally prepare yourself to read GUNS because there are a lot of curse words that come from Spencer's mouth- notice that I didn't say not to read this book, because this is a must ;). I am a die hard Ford fan/pet, but Spencer really got to me and had me swooning, hot, and wanting more Spencer Shrike! If you read BOMB, then you know what to expect from Spencer's character in GUNS, because we get the same guy we got in BOMB and the few missing pieces to Spencer's character are revealed in this story. I have to say that after reading these missing pieces I feel even more in love with his character, because of how deep his love for Veronica aka Bomb is. I will say that some of my favorite scenes were reading his memories :). All there is left to say is that Spencer Shrike is on a whole different level from both Ronin and Fords character- he is my second favorite from the guys, have to stay faithful to Ford's character.

Veronica Vaugh is one of my favorite kick-ass chicks!! She does have a few problems and she did make me want to slap her a few times in the story when she got all jealous and when she was all sad, but this girl is tough. A few words to describe Veronica's character are explosive, tough, kick-ass, hot, sexy, sensible, and lovable. My heart broke for Veronica's character in BOMB, because she is the only girl in her family with her own personal problems, add the fact that Spencer ignores her, and she just feels that no one really listens to her. Now, in GUNS she is working for Spencer as his personal assistant and she is standing up for herself and figuring out what she truly wants in life and what will make her happy. By the end of GUNS, she is finally able to confront and deal with her personal problems, and she is more sure of herself and her self-worth.

Veronica and Spencer's relationship is one fucking massive explosive, sexy, hot ride :D!! This is seriously no joke. Veronica and Spencer's relationship is one of the hottest, sexual angst, intense, explosive, dirty talking, fierce, and explosive relationships in the Rook & Ronin series. I hate to say this, but their relationship is hotter than Ford and Ashleigh's relationship. I just loved everything about Spencer and Veronica together, because even though they do have a few fights and make each other jealous every once in a while, they are just one of my favorite couples in this series. They stand on equal grounds with their love and each others personality. Remember how I said I loved reading Spencer's memories? Well I loved reading his memories of the amazing moments he shared with Veronica. There is also one part in the story when J.A. Huss just made it epic between these two, and it's one of my favorite moments of Veronica and Spencer- but I can't say more or I will ruin the book :). All I can say is that whenever these two are together there are a lot of hot sex scenes that involve dirty talking.

GUNS by J.A. Huss is the hottest read from the ROOK & RONIN Series, because Veronica and Spencer are explosively sexy hot. Now, there is a twist that you will never see coming and had my jaw dropping to the floor, because I just couldn't believe what was happening. This is the perfect ending to the series, but I'm a little sad it is over. The second part of the Epilogue had me smiling and crying at the same time, because it just gives us a glimpse to the happy ending of each couple. I'm hoping there will be more novellas with the characters or more novellas where they make an appearance. J.A. Huss thank you for giving us Rook, Ronin, Spencer, Veronica, Ford, and Ashleigh, and for taking us through this emotional and suspense journey through each character :D!
