Fifty million books ago I promised you a love story about Five and his Princess. This is their story.
Five Aston has known Rory Shrike for as long as he can remember. He played with her in the sandbox. He went to every damn horse show just to be supportive. He helped her with her French, walked her home from school, and faked his test scores just to stay with her a little longer and not be sent off to college early. But eventually he had to move on. And so did she. Never has a second chance meant so much to a boy who loves a girl.
A standalone book that is also a spin-off of the Rook & Ronin Series and prequel to the Mister Series. You can read it first, you can read it last. It doesn't really matter because it's f*cking Five.
Review: Five by JA Huss
My Thoughts about Five….
I discovered JA Huss after she wrote and published The Rook and Ronin Series. I did not get a chance to go back and read so my first encounter with the mysterious Five is in the Mister Series. He is an enigma that is for sure! Five cannot be read as a standalone as you need to know some background before reading. So you are warned!!
From a young age Five Aston knew he loved Rory Shrike and one day they would have their happily ever after. But he would also discover at a young age things are not what the seem and he would need to do things to protect those he loved, including his own family. Five was a not only from a powerful family he was genius smart. Sometimes that combination could include you in things you don’t want to be included in and Five will have to make decisions at a young age that will effect him for years.
Rory is literally a bad ass! I so loved her! She’s a strong female that isn’t afraid to kick ass and take names. She is funny, beautiful, and smart and while she’s about to start her summer vacation before her senior year at Princeton her life is about to be turned upside down. Six years ago Five left and now he’s back. She returns home to Colorado and their reunion is not what she expected. She must make a decision, but in heart she already knows the answer.
Five is a crazy rollercoaster ride and one I just loved! I loved how some pieces came together but some where left open as I REALLY need to read the Rook and Ronin series!! If you’ve read the Mister Series you will love Five! Huge 5 stars for me!
“You want a kiss?”
“Mmmhmm,” I say, closing my eyes as I picture it. God, I’ve dreamed of this moment for ages. “I really need one, Five.”
His mouth touches my earlobe. Lips caress the soft skin of my neck. “Like this?” he asks.
“Yes,” I practically moan. “Just… like… that.”
“Do you want more, Princess?” he asks, his voice low now. Growly. Filled with so much promise.
“More, please,” I say, in my sweetest princess voice.
“Then promise me, baby. Just say those two words. ‘I promise.’ And as soon as you do that, I’ll give you everything you want. OK?”
“Five,” I moan. “Just—”
His hands come up suddenly. He cups my face, stares into my eyes with the most sincere expression I’ve ever seen on him. And underneath that sincerity, I see… fear. “Promise me.”
“Five,” I say, unable to stop staring back. This is everything. Everything I’ve always dreamed of. Five pressing me up against a wall. Me, the only thing on his mind. Except I’m not the only thing on his mind, am I? No. Those creeps from the past are back. That’s why he’s here. And even though I’d normally not give in so easy, I know this is not a game. So I say, “I promise. Now stop talking, you stupid genius, and kiss me already.”
He smiles. Leans in. I close my eyes, ready for it. Finally gonna get what I want.
But then he moves his mouth to my ear and nibbles on my lobe. “Good girl,” he coos. “But I’m not sure I believe you, Princess. I can feel those wheels turning inside your head. They’re grinding hard.” He presses his hard cock against my hip when he says that last part. “So I’m gonna hold off on that kiss until I get back tonight. And if you’ve been good, and if you’ve held up your end of the—”
“What?” I say, pushing him back. “You will do no such thing, Five Aston! I want a fucking kiss and I want one right now! I’ve waited six years for this, and denying me is practically emotional abuse. Now stop fucking around and kiss me, goddammit!”
“Who’s the boss of you, Rory?”
I huff out some air. “Me.”
He smiles. It’s a big, genuine, I’m-gonna-teach-you-who’s-boss smile. “Wrong answer.”
