SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ROCK AUDIOBOOK RELEASE GIVEAWAY!
Rock is an unusual story in my catalog. It’s almost a straight-up thriller framed alongside a second-chance romance. RK Saber left home to become a rock star when he was eighteen after a fatal accident killed his high school sweetheart, only to be forced back to his home town after another equally tragic accident involving his band mates.
Confused, recovering from an almost fatal throat injury, and stuck in the last place on Earth he’d like to be, he has to come to terms with both past and present demons in order to figure out why he’s been blacking out.
It’s a true psychological thriller with the love story taking center stage as RK (or Rock, as he is known in the music world) tries to figure out just exactly what happened five years ago when his girlfriend died on prom night, and how all that relates to the death of three of his best friends, while being forbidden from talking to the only other survivor of his band.
I came up with this idea I the summer of 2013 and wrote a few chapters, but didn’t really give it much attention until January this year. It’s definitely one of my favorite stories and the suspense in this one is off the charts. I wish I could go into more detail, but you really need to read it without spoilers, and almost everything in the book is a spoiler.
I did manage to hand-pick a few audio excerpts for you to enjoy, so if you haven’t read it (or even if you did!) you can get a good feel for what kind of book it is. The sex is hot (as always!) and the world and characters are intricate. In other words, a true JA Huss book in every sense of the word. I think that’s why I like it so much. Plus, Sebastian York, the narrator for Ark in 321, is the narrator for Rock and he kills it, man. Sebastian nails this character. When I first got the files over a month ago I just wanted to get a good feel for what it was going to sound like, so I opened up chapter one and didn’t put it down for two days when I finished.
It’s not a typical love story, which is why I made the subtitle A Rock Star Romantic Suspense. Yes, it’s a rock star story, but not like any other rock star story you’ve ever read before. It’s a little bit sad, a little bit ironic, and has a lot of twisted plot points. The book trailer really captures the mood of the story, so if you’ve got a few extra minutes, have a look at that too.
It also features my favorite model on the cover, Robert Reider. He did a special photoshoot for me when he was home in Romania last Christmas and I’m so grateful that I had a chance to use him on another cover. He was the model for the Ford books too. Robert is one of the nicest people in the business. I can’t thank him enough for taking time out from his holiday time to do this cover for me.
I have a good giveaway going for this audiobook release. It’s a prize pack with a bunch of Rock merchandise from my Society6 store that includes a Rock beach towel, a Rock mug, a Rock carry-all pouch, and a signed copy of the book.

Rock: A Rock Star Romantic Suspense
He had it all. He lost it all. And all he wants now is a second chance.
RK Saber ran from tragedy five years ago when his car went over the side of a mountain in a prom-night crash. Consumed by guilt, he walked away from Juilliard and morphed into Rock, front man for the global rock-band sensation, Son of a Jack. Five members. Five best friends. Five rising stars burning so bright, they had to know it couldn’t last.
When tragedy strikes again and the band goes from five to two, RK is sentenced to… home. Back to the place where all his nightmares started. Back to the memory of all the things he lost. Back to the reality he refused to face before he left.
The Vetti twins were identical in all ways but two. Melanie was insane and Melissa was not. One twin was killed on prom night five years ago and one twin was not. And now that RK has returned home, the twin left standing has quite a story to tell. Could she really be the girl he thought he’d lost forever? Or is Melanie just up to her same old tricks?
ROCK is a rock-star romantic suspense by the New York Times bestselling master of twist, JA Huss.
