Synopsis

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. 

Michelle & Grace’s Review

Michelle: Geez Grace, it’s been a hot minute since you and I have written a review together. What’s up with that? It was because of you, I started reading J.A. Huss and it was the Social Media Series. Many books after, and I am still kinda hooked. Fucking Five, like his dad Fucking Ford, is Fucking amazing! Yes, there will be lots of F bombs throughout, deal with it people.

Grace: Girrrrrl, it has been too long!! But of course Fucking Five would bring us together.

I’m so glad you jumped on the band wagon to enjoy these books with me. I love buddy reading with you! And this book is best enjoyed that way, because you are going to want someone to talk to while reading.

Michelle: Let’s get to the heart of the matter. I’m sure Grace will agree with me, you can technically read Five as a standalone and not be lost, but if this is your first J.A. Huss book, I would suggest whenever you have time on your TBR, that you start at the beginning, the Rook & Ronin Series, the Come Series, Meet Me in the Dark, Wasted Lust and finally, the Misters Series. Yeah a lot of books, I know, but again not necessary but recommended. So now that I added to your TBR list, let me get to nitty gritty of this review.

I think Grace and I have been waiting for Five the minute he was introduced to us in the R&R Series. Grace, over here, has claimed his dad, Ford as her BBF for many years and we weren’t even to mention that we had the hots for him.

Grace:

Yes, Ford has held a steady spot in my top 5 BBFs since I read Taut. And then you creates the perfect spawn . . .

Fucking Five!!! Finally!!!!
I’ve only been waiting for his book for 4 years, pretty much begging the author to write his book after reading that Epilogue to Guns.

And I agree with Michelle, you can read this as a standalone, but there are so many layers and connections to other books, that I personally think you’d enjoy it more if you’ve at least read the R&R series.

Michelle: Five, oh Five, I’m having such a cougar moment right about now. Who knew this charismatic boy genius, would be so fucking romantic? There are two parts, the love story between Five and his Princess Aurora (yeah, her mom has an obsession with Disney Princesses), or Rory. They were destined to be together, so you get to see how their love story literally started while they were in diapers. I’m still swooning over his words to Rory.

“You are the love of my life, Aurora Shrike. My heart’s desire. My soulmate. My fae. And there is nothing I want more than to give you everything you want. Show you the entire world. Make you happy.”

But Rory doesn’t hold back either, she tells Mr. Five in no uncertain terms, that they are destined to be each other.

I’m not gonna waste a single second of this life, that’s for your. I’m going to be with you forever. And you know why?” “Why?” I ask. “Tell me.” “Because I’m the boss of you.”

Grace: While the years of separation, six to be exact, did weigh heavily on Rory, and she privately steamed about that separation, the two really don’t hold back when they are together. Their love and passion for one another was oozing from the pages. So hot!!

Five did try to distance himself at times to protect her, but this Strike Bike Princess wasn’t having it!! You go girl, you get your man!! LOL

“I’ve been yours and you’ve been mine since the beginning of time.  And it’s gonna stay that way, whether you like it or not.”

Michelle: The second part of the book is the where it gets really interesting, and in true J.A. Huss style, lots of suspense and WTF moments and how will Five and Rory will truly have their happily ever after. I was on edge, as always when reading a J.A. Huss book, on edge.

Grace: I was so confused for a good part of this book. What was the big secret Five was hiding? But when it was revealed, I was kind of disappointed in myself that I didn’t figure it out sooner. If you’ve recently read R&R, you may figure it out before the revelation.

And although Five’s secret was shocking, the real thriller in this book involved Rory and that crazy ass club at her college, the Palladium House Eating Club. It definitely made me think of Skull & Bones, only way creepier. I think both of us were in shock around the 70% mark as everything becomes clear. I loved this whole last part of the book, so much so that I wished there was more and it didn’t feel so rushed. I literally saw the % left in book on my kindle and kept thinking we’d get a cliffhanger.

Michelle: Do Five and Rory get their happily ever after? Well I am not telling you a damn thing. But what I will tell you is that prepare yourself for some hot steamy sexy times and moments of crazy. I could not wait to find out what happened to Rory. I read the Misters series and for those of you who have read it, you will know what I am talking about. Maybe Grace will agree, but I feel like I grew up with this whole clan. Always wanting more. I knew that both Grace and I wanted a book about Five, we needed a book about Five. The author did not disappoint. My brain usually hurts and eventually I need another day to recuperate after reading a J.A. Huss book because I want to know how in the hell she comes up with these crazy ass storylines that seem to fit. I’m going back to my sofa now, and continued to rock myself back and forth for a bit, but before I do, go read Five.

Grace: Yes, this book delivered everything I expected from Five and his Princess. From the moment he claimed her as his when they were toddlers, this couple has been destined to be together. And it was so great to see that love didn’t die over the years.

If you share our love for this group and this couple, you won’t be disappointed.
