Who’s That Girl: A Look at Ashleigh from Taut; The Ford Book (Rook and Ronin Spinoff)

Ford: Slack Taut Bundle

JA Huss

Series: Ford, Rook and Ronin Spin-off

Published on June 17, 2014

Genres: Adult Suspense, Erotic Romance
MORE than 300 FIVE STAR reviews for these two books on Amazon.
FORD: SLACK/TAUT IS A STANDALONE BUNDLE - you do NOT have to read any of the Rook and Ronin books first.


Ford Aston is not too picky about what he wants out of Christmas. He's not into this holiday--like at all. He doesn't do presents, or family dinners, or parties, or church.

He does pets. And he's got one lined up for Christmas Eve. In fact, it's the highlight of his day. And if he can get through drop-in visits, nosy twelve year olds, an inappropriate conversation with his best friend's girlfriend, dinner with a family that's not his, and a party at his mother's house--well, he might just get home in time to enjoy himself with a stranger and make it all OK.


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.

Big. Time.

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.


Since A LOT of people have been asking here is the scoop on how this book fits in with my Rook & Ronin series:

Ford first appears in Rook and Ronin #2, Manic. He has a bigger role in Panic, R&R #3, and then he has a novella, called SLACK. This TAUT book is only FORD. It's not really part of the R&R series, as that plot has all been sidelined for this one romance book.
The Rook and Ronin Series has seven books:
(4) SLACK: A Day in the Life of Ford Aston
(5) TAUT: The Ford Book
(6) BOMB: A Day in the Life of Spencer Shrike
(7) GUNS: The Spencer Book

TAUT and SLACK can be read as standalones.
GUNS cannot be read until you've read ALL the other books.

This week for our weekly BLOG HOP, we are taking a look at Slack and Taut…and that means a whole lotta FORD. I know there’s a ton of Ford fans out there… so this is gonna be a great week recapping these characters. Today’s stop is all about ASHLEIGH…

Who’s That Girl?

Ashleigh Li is desperate. Stranded in the middle of a blizzard with her three month old daughter, she has no choice but to accept the handsome stranger’s help. It also tells a lot about Ashleigh, she is a good read of character. She, like Ford, is highly intelligent and wise beyond her twenty-three years of age. Ash maybe broken and lost, but she is still one of the strongest characters I have ever read. I loved her determination, openness and willingness to help Ford, even when she was at one of her lowest points.
