4.5 stars for the Prequel to Ford's full length book; "Slack" is just a taste of what a day with Ford looks like. This day happens to be Christmas, and I must say that I fell in love with Ford even more. There is just something about him that is vulnerable and lonely; even though he is quite the asshole. I mean, he has sex with women who he calls his "pets", and basically he doesn't even care enough about them to know their name. He also doesn't let them talk while the whole time they are in his apartment giving him what he wants sexually. How does a man like that end up being loved by so many readers? Well, I know that in my case there is an air of mystery surrounding him..and I am dying to find out exactly why Ford is the way he is. Yes, he has Asperger's; but I'm thinking that there is much more than meets the eye with him. It makes me sad that he is so much in love with his friend's woman, Rook; but he will never have her. It is the first time that Ford has ever felt anything for anyone...but he can't have her even though he loves her with every beat of his heart. *sigh* Even though he is untouchable, he stills has this desire deep down to be loved and accepted by HIS very own someone. I will admit; I want so badly to see that for him. This thought from Ford almost made me cry for him when I read it:"So much happened today and I have no one to share it with. No one. I just want someone to listen to me for once."The sadness that poured out of Ford after I read that, truly did break my heart for him. I am so eager to get on reading his full length book and find out who his heroine will be. All I keep thinking is that it will have to be someone very special to compete with the great Rook.Once again, JA Huss has held my attention captivated by her brilliant writing. Even though this was a novella just giving us a glimpse into a day in the life of Ford; it packed a punch emotionally. It was nice too that there were cameos from all of the characters we have grown to love in the "Rook and Ronin" series. This is a spin off from that series, and it is such a treat to get a whole book about just Ford! I believe there is another two books after Ford's that will be about his partner in crime; Spencer. I am so pleased to have found out about this author; her stories are truly a treat for me to read. She includes everything I love in a great book; sex, susupence,drama,action,and of course, LOVE!Well, it has now come to that time, the one that I have been anticipating since I first was introduced to Ford in "Manic." I am now going to read, and cross my fingers that he will get the HEA that I think he deserves! I leave you with typical words from Ford: (he walked into his mom's place at Christmas time and this is what goes through his head!!!)"It's like the North Pole threw up in here, that's how fucking festive it is." well well well...Mr Ford Aston..I luv his..I guess like the title..The Day in the life Of Ford Aston.. kinda cool to get to hear a little more about his story..can't wait to get to his next book..I need more and I want him to find him a woman..I know..I know..he doesn't do relationships..girlfriends but I know that his heart is being chipped away and somebody will wrap him around their can't wait. =)
The best thing in my opinion to come out of the Rook and Ronin series is Ford. He is spectacular.
I love Ford. No time to write a review. I have a date with him in Taut.
Mmmmmmmmm. What can I say - Ford is just my kind of man :)
I enjoyed this series because I like Ford.
Love love love
