Life in Rook & Ronin’s world has been bliss for fifteen years. Rook, Veronica, and Ashleigh are still BFF’s raising their kids together. Ronin, Spencer, and Ford have managed to go legit and stay out of trouble. And they have a pack of kids running around the eight thousand square foot Vail mansion they all share for the holidays—begging for gifts, and fun, and love.
But every HEA has problems.
Five is fifteen and getting ready to go off to college. He’s put it off as long as he could in order to stay close to Princess Shrike, but his stay of execution is over and in three weeks he’s off to Oxford. But Five can’t leave until he gets the only thing he’s ever wanted. The heart of his Princess.
Ford and Ashleigh never had any more children after Five. And now that Kate is sixteen, Ashleigh is out of her head with desire for just one more chance to have a baby in the house.
Rook and Ronin have two beautiful daughters, but Sparrow is growing up too. And she just got a job offer that has Ronin crazed with paternal worry.
And Spencer is the father of a fifteen-year-old princess who looks way too much like her Bombshell mother for his comfort level.
Join the whole Rook & Ronin gang for a Team Christmas you will never forget.
Loved this! 15 years later, and it was fantastic!
I seriously loved this! It was so realistic to see where Rook and Ronin, Ford and Ashleigh, and Spencer and Veronica were in each of their relationships. As well as how they are also still such a parts of each others lives still. It's wasn't some fantasy "everything has been perfect" in the last fifteen years, instead it showed how many real relationships evolve over time. Each of the ladies were in places emotionally either I'd been before, or I have friends that have voiced the same issues. I've heard the same things or similar things from the men in my life.
What I loved even more, was seeing what all the kids were up to, and how their personalities and interests were so unique to each of them, and reflected parts of their parents or their families. I loved how this was tied around such a significant time of year, and how that brought each of the couples full circle in different ways.
I'll always hope for more story for these couples, even in small ways, woven into other stories, because I just love these characters so much.
An absolute MUST READ!!!
I have one thing to say to JA Huss after reading this book, and that is Thank You! Thank you for writing this! I have so missed these characters! What a treat to be able to catch up with all of them at once. No dark and twisty here... there’s just, as the title promises, happily ever after. This book is so beautiful and hopeful and romantic and enthralling and riveting and completely captivating. If you’ve read any of the previous books, then you absolutely must read this book! You will not forgive yourself if you don’t.
I always wonder what life would be like for my favorite fictional characters after all is said and done and this book gives you that glimpse into the future. It was sweet and funny and everything I would wish for for our favorite couples. I adore reading how these tough men soften with fatherhood and seeing how they deal with typical parenting issues...and some not so typical parenting issues. I loved it and I can't wait for Five and Rory's continuation.
