Rock by JA Huss
Published: March 7, 2016 – No Pre-Order
Rock Star Romantic Suspense
Standalone Book
Welcome to RK’s rock star life.
I was living the dream, I was full throttle, all in, one hundred percent on top of the world. But it’s a hell of a long fall back down when you finally crash and burn.
Welcome to the delusions, the final act, the coming-to-Jesus moment when there’s nothing left to do but look yourself in the mirror and ask… How did I get like this?
I am RK’s living nightmare. I am RK’s empty soul. I am RK’s unchecked fantasy world that makes no sense to anyone.
I only have one thing left. Just one girl holding my broken pieces together.
And even she might be a lie.
Rock is a standalone rock-star romantic suspense by the New York Times bestselling master of twist, JA Huss.

Special thanks to supermodel Robert Reider and photographer Luciana Varga for the great cover photo!

Melissa Vetti’s lips were softer than the down blankets on her bed and they were equally as warm. We lingered in the kiss longer than we should’ve. Longer than ever before, not moving, not tonguing each other, not seeking more with wandering hands trying to pick at the buttons on our jeans. Just connected.
“I love you,” I whispered into her mouth.
“I know,” she giggled into mine. She always said that when I pushed, but at least this time it didn’t come with a litany of excuses. We’re too young. You’re leaving in three months. We have our whole lives to fall in love.
It was too late for me though, because I’d been in love with her since the sixth grade when we ditched the chaperones on the class camping trip in Rocky Mountain National Park in the middle of the night.
We both lived next to that park. We wandered into that forest so many times, the woods were our home. And the spot the school chose for the class trip was close by. Our town is not really rich, even though if you want to buy a decent house up here in Grand Lake these days, it’s gonna cost you a million dollars. Our schools are not by any means well-equipped. Hell, most younger kids who live here, and there aren’t many, go to school in Granby, the next town over. But a trip to the local woods was something everyone could afford.
I knew the way—hell, she knew the way too. And when the small waterfall came into view, the moon making the water in the pool shimmer silver, we both got sweaty hands and chills up our spines.
Missy Vetti and I had our first kiss that night and I loved every moment of it. The sound of the forest at night. The cool midnight breeze whipping past our skin making us shiver, even though it was July. The heat of her breath mixing with mine and the way my fingers found their way into her hair and pulled her close out of instinct.
That’s all we did that night. Just one kiss in the dark. But it was enough for me to fall in love. And now that we were on the verge of college, it seemed like every moment had been wasted. Like I should’ve done so much more with her. Everything felt like a missed opportunity.
“You have to go before my dad gets up, RK.”
“I know.” I’d been sneaking into her house to sleep over for years. Not every night. And we didn’t fuck or anything. Missy Vetti was as pure as the water rushing down the mountain and her dad spent every night sleeping like a bear in the winter, so we never got caught. Or maybe he knew and didn’t care? Maybe he knew his daughter was perfect and would never let a boy spoil her with sex?
I reluctantly pulled away from our embrace and sat up in her bed, looking back over my shoulder. “Pick you up at eight?”
She smiled big. Big. Big. Big.
That’s all I got—a smile.
And I have seen that smile in my nightmares for the past five years and asked myself the same question over and over again.
Why did I kill her?
