12 Days of Giveaways - Day 9 - JA Huss

12 Days of Giveaways – Day 9


The winner of the ROCK Prize is: Jaana Häkli

Please respond to the PM I sent you from my personal FB profile with your mailing address.

It’s ROCK Day! I really love this book. It’s a standalone and there is really no crossover into other books. There is one super brief mention of one of the characters in this book in Sweet Thing, but it hardly matters. Rock is a mind-fuck, second-chance romantic suspense about a rock star who returns home after disappearing five years ago to recover after a tragic accident and has to face his family and friends.

BUT… there is a serious mystery in this book. It’s an emotional story with a heart-pounding ending. There is only one point of view too. It’s all Rock. And the narration is flawlessly performed by SEBASTIAN YORK.


RK 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 a cliché rock star.
But when tragedy strikes again 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.
Back to the only girl he ever truly loved.

Hands down, my favorite holiday dessert are frosted cut-out Christmas cookies!

Oh, I love these. I hope my stove gets here in time so I can bake. But just in case it doesn’t I ordered some Christmas cookies from Cheryl’s! lol 2020 was a shit show. I refuse to end this year with no Christmas cookies. 

Our cookies aren’t all special and pretty. We just slap some frosting on them, sprinkle on the sugar crystals, and call it good! But they taste amazing and this recipe has been in my family for four generations.

  13. Hi Julie! So it has been a while. I don’t even remember reading Rock! I have it and is marked read and I even read your blurb, but is not ringing a bell. I guess I am going to have to go back and reread it.😊😉

  14. My hubby and listened to Rock while driving around on our last holiday. I am adding more and more of your books to his reading (well, listening) list now 😊

  15. Hi 🙂
    It’s so hard to pick a fav type of dessert but I went with the classic, apple pie.
    Thanks for the chance & Happy Holidays!

  16. I love Christmas cookies too! We won’t be able to do our annual Christmas Eve cookie day with my nieces & nephews & their friends,but maybe we can do a smaller event

  17. Greetings! I posted on your Facebook page my favorite dessert, my favorite holiday drink is a chilled, boozy egg nog!

  18. Everyone is talking desserts! I’m literally drooling. I work in the Salvation Army. Many people and companies donate food. Panera donates every week. Bread. Bagels. Pastries! Boxes and boxes. You have to eat. Lol. Well, restraint might help. Panera uses no preservatives in their baked goods, so we have to put it all out for everyone to help themselves.

  19. Love desserts…this year will be sad..I can’t fly home to see my family for Christmas and my birthday is December 26th..so probably no point in buying a cake just for myself..I will make myself a tiramisu

  20. Love the look of your cookies. Ours are similar looking. The recipe was my great grandmother’s. Sugar cookies with a teaspoon of nutmeg. It’s the ingredient that I never see on other sugar cookie recipes.

  21. Hi Julie! I love those covers. As for the cookies, if you bake them at all you are one step ahead of me. (Bad Gran. lol) I hope your ordered cookies are sweet and scrumptious.

  22. Can’t go wrong with Holiday cookies….They go with everything..
    You can have them for Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner!

  23. You are such a sweet and generous person. Not to mention an awesome writer. Thank you for all you’ve done! Have a happy holiday season!

  24. Oh my poor Rock. I love this twisty book, and I still want a book or novella or anyfuckingthing about Rock’s brother. Even a paragraph. Bwahahaha! Damn him for not getting into your head!

  25. Hi Julie! My favorite desserts are: Eggnog Panna Cotta with Spiked Cranberry Sauce, Baklava but especially Kanafeh, Tulumba, and Lokma ❤ my mouth is watering just thinking about it ☺️

    Thanks for making me smile while bringing up sweet memories, and with your ginormous kind heart ❤

  26. I can’t believe Christmas is almost here. I see the post about the signed books and candles that people ordered back in October. I can kick myself for not signing up on your blog and on Facebook sooner. I hope you will offer this again soon. Hoped you had a great day. Happy Holidays!!

    1. Julie, thank you so much for all these giveaways. I know I’m repeating myself but you ARE truly awesome! Rock was probably one of the first J. A. Huss book I’ve listen to and it had me hooked!

      Ps: your cookies look really good 🤩

  27. Beautiful Christmas cookies, I hope mine turn out as good. I love making All the sweet Treats that I can! Happy Holidays.

  28. I’m right there with you, Julie….I LOVE frosted sugar cookies at Christmas!! It seems almost too simple for that to be a favorite holiday dessert, but they are just the best indulgence!

  29. A popular dessert I make is similar to the Banana Pudding with vanilla wafers. Except I mix french vanilla pudding, cool whip and condensed sweetened milk and layer it with vanilla wafers. And drizzle chocolate syrup in between the layers. If I use 9×13 pan I can get 2 layers. Then drizzle the top with chocolate syrup.

  30. I love this book Rock! You kept me in suspense through the whole book and I loved every minute of it! What a great story, thank you Julie.

  31. Hi thank you again. It has been a rough year and it is nice to read and enter your giveaways to turn off my brain a little.

  32. Your cut out cookies look delicious, and I think you should share this 4 generation family recipe please! Hopefully your oven arrives, but Cheryl’s cookies do make a yummy back up.

  33. My youngest kiddo is 10 and he’s looking forward to baking Christmas cookies. It’s always fun when the kids get involved!

  34. Hey girl, I am making a peanut butter pie this year. Usually Mom makes a banana pudding but we wanted something else. Happy Holidays ♥

  35. This one made me reminisce about my mom… bittersweet. Thanks for taking my thoughts away from other stuff for a few minutes.

Leave a comment! I love them!
