Publisher's Summary

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. But life is a tricky bastard. And conning criminals for the better part of 10 years brings its own set of problems. Sure, Rook lied her way out of a sticky situation, covering for Ronin, Ford, and Spencer's crimes in the process. But not everyone is buying her 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 - distant and moody. She's done sitting at home, pining over a man she can't have. She's tired of being ignored and she's coming out swinging.

Now there's another man in town with his eye on her. He's got secrets too, and he's more than willing to share. She's ready to jump ship. Because the last thing on Spencer's mind is a relationship, and Ron the Bomb has had enough.

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 with guns.

    "Amazing!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I definitely would recommend not only this book but the series as a whole. What I love about JA Huss's writing is that I never know what to expect. It's not one of those books that you can see what's coming a mile away, her stories have twists and turns and are unpredictable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them, I can't pick just one. Well maybe the character in the last chapter but I can't say anymore as it would be a spoiler!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love when Veronica ignores Spencer's phone call when she's out with the girls. I loved his alpha attitude when he walked over to "talk" to her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, not only because of the storyline but because of the narrators. They were absolutely perfect for this book.

    What more can you say when listening to this series but, WOW.
    Fantastic storyline and narrators that give you a performance that makes you feel like you're part of the storyline. Spencer is one sexy dude, and his Bomb is just Bombshell.

    "science fair domination"

    I know that's a weird headline and really has nothing to do with this story but omg I loved this line from epilogue part 2. I loved every part of this book. not a boring moment. this whole series is great. I'm sad I waited this long to read it. it just didn't attract my interest. I should of known better. JA HUSS never let's me down and her books are never ordinary. I'm obviously not the best book reviewer just telling everyone I loved this book but not stating why. lol
    But I loved this book and the whole series and you have to give it a try.

    "Spencer Shrike Says It all"

    Spencer: Rook and Ronin Volume 8 by J.A. Huss is a twofer that combines the novella, Bomb: A Day in the Life of Spencer Shrike and the novel Guns: The Spencer Book. I read both of these books when they were originally released and thoroughly enjoyed reliving the experience in audio format.

    Bomb: The first part of the audio takes us through a “typical” Spencer day. Of course, we all know there isn’t a typical Spencer day because he is such an unpredictable man. Poor Spencer is having a lot of second thoughts and a little jealousy because his friends are in permanent relationships. Even “F**king Ford has a wife now and Spencer is frustrated and keeping his distance from Ronnie.

    Spencer wants a relationship with Veronica “Bombshell” Vonn but he also knows he needs to protect her. The sad thing is Veronica doesn’t understand and believes it is time for her to move on to someone who appreciates her. The team of Ronin, Ford, and Spencer are still trying to sort out the events that happened between Rook and her ex. They are getting ready for court and the possibility that everyone could be behind bars.

    The narrator, Troy Duran, does an excellent job of bringing Spencer to life. He is a man so close to having it all, the woman he loves, a successful business, and the reality TV show.
    At the same time, there is pain that it can all disappear in a flash. We get glimpses into Spencer and Veronica’s past that are fun and set the stage for the next book.

    I remember the first time I read this book Bomb was the bridge to Spencer’s story. In the audio version, Bomb is his introduction or re-introduction to Spencer and the team, although I don’t think anyone who meets Spencer can ever forget him.

    Guns: Each member of the team has a purpose--Spencer’s job is protection. He has the guns and knows how to use them. He is concerned because he shot too fast and may bring down his team that includes not only Ronin and Ford but their women Rook and Ashleigh. As if things aren’t bad enough, unexplainable events are happening in town, and unknown people are showing up. It’s all fishy. The team doesn’t know who the target is and how to keep everyone safe.

    There is a lot of suspense in this story and Troy Duran and Jennifer Reilly do an excellent job pushing the anxiety and heartache right into the heart and psyche of the listener. There are times when I experience Veronica’s loneliness and rejection; especially when everyone she loves including Ashleigh and Rook excludes her.

    Enter Bobby Mansi. Is he part of the problem or part of the solution? He gives Veronica a friendly shoulder and pulls her into the fray unintentionally. I love the two epilogues and the way they wrap up the series. (Although there is another novella that we didn’t know about when the book originally released.) I love the characters of this series and appreciate every time they show up in one of Julie’s books. There is also an unexpected character who makes an appearance at the end. Love how her worlds intersect sometimes.

    The only thing that didn’t work for me is the segue from Bomb to Guns. The audio version flows one story after another without a break Guns sounds like a new chapter, even though the narrator reads the title, it is a little confusing. For me, this is very minor, but someone that hasn’t read the book could be a little put-off.

    Great job Tory Duran and Jennifer Reilly. Spencer: Rook and Ronin Volume 8 is on my “play it again” list. It is just that good.

    NOTE: A caution to anyone new to the series, there is a lot of backstory in the previous Rook & Ronin books/audios that you need to know before listening to this one.
