ROOKE by Callie Hart • FMR REVIEW

ROOKE by Callie Hart
Now Live 


Watchmaker. Car thief. Heartbreaker extraordinaire.

Rooke Blackheath has spent enough time in juvie to know that he really doesn’t want to go to jail. The food sucks, the clothes itch, and there are absolutely no women in sight. Well…none he wants to fuck, anyway. 

He should probably stop boosting cars, but the money is stellar and the high is out of this world. And why should he turn his back on something that sets his soul on fire anyway? 

The answer to that question comes in an unexpected form: a petite five-foot-three firecracker named Sasha who refuses to give him the time of day no matter how thick he lays on the charm. 

Rooke’s not easily deterred, though. Just like the watches he builds from scratch, Rooke knows all too well how women tick. Women are a game to him. A game he always wins. 

Sasha doesn’t stand a chance.


Sasha Cross’s life has been permanently derailed since her son died five years ago. You wouldn’t know it to look at her, of course. She has a great job, a beautiful house, and caring friends. Every week, she hosts a book club featuring the sexiest, most romantic stories on the planet, and every week she falls for a new fictional knight in shining armor. 

Fictional men are perfect, though. They don’t hurt you. They don’t break your heart. They don’t cheat on you after your child dies, and they rarely ever leave the toilet seat up. 

When Rooke Blackheath shows up at Sasha's workplace, it’s clear he’s nothing like the men who grace the pages of Sasha's favorite books. Dangerous, arrogant, sharp-tongued and sarcastic, Rooke’s not the kind of guy she needs in her life. Not to mention the fact that he’s eleven years her junior. 

They don’t live in different worlds. As far as Sasha is concerned, Rooke lives in a different galaxy altogether. She’d like to keep it that way, but fate appears to have other plans.

When Cinderella lost her shoe, Prince Charming showed up at her door. 

When Sasha Cross loses her book, an entirely different kind of rogue comes a-knocking.


Review by: Gina 

It has been awhile since I have read a book that had me on the edge of my seat, holding my breath, waiting for what was going to happen next. Rooke was all that, plus more! The book was sweet, hot, and with a some dark and dirty thrown in there. 

The story was really interesting and had me hooked from the beginning. Sasha had some tragedy from her past that would continue to haunt her in the present. She was living each day, but not truly living until Rooke. He came into her life and tore down her wall brick by brick. He wasn't taking no for an answer. Rooke also had his own past to contend with. And like Sasha, his past followed him into the present. Only Rooke sort of accepted it as who he was. 

I thought the book was well written and had a very captivating story line. Not only did we get this whirlwind romance between Rooke and Sasha, we also go into some heavy stuff involving some bad men. I did feel the ending was a little rushed. I was teetering at the top of the peak, biting my nails waiting for what was going to happen next and instead of a gradual drop, it was steep decline. I wish the author would have playing more with those heart stopping moment at the end. I really thought we were going to be left with a cliffhanger, but weren't. 

Overall, this book was amazing! I thought the characters were great. The storyline was fantastic. The writing was exceptional. The author was able to pull out all these emotions from inside me, with just her words. It was perfection! I can't wait to diving to more stories from this author! 

4.5 Stars
