Rock Chick (Rock Chick #1) by Kristen Ashley
Rock Chick - Kristen Ashley

 

syns

 

Indy Savage, cop's daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy's employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicating matters, Lee has decided he's interested, Indy's decided she's not. But she can't seem to keep Lee out of her life when she's repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she's finding dead bodies). Indy's best bet is to solve the mystery of the diamonds before Lee. Lee's challenge is to keep Indy alive and, at the same time, win back her heart.

 

my though

 

I never heard of this series and the books and the wonderful Yodamom recommended them to me. Thank you! I really enjoyed this book, and despite, people getting shot, kidnapped and beat up I laughed a lot with this book. Out loud. Yep, sitting there and reading and the next thing you know is me laughing like a lunatic. I really enjoyed the balance of this book of romance and action. We get plenty of action, from a diamond heist to high speed car chases and being kidnapped, but also some pretty sweet and hot romance which has some awesome sexy-times. And let’s not forget the humor, from dialog to things happening in the book it was pretty funny. The characters I had a hate-love relationship with. Indy ….. OMG I often wanted to strangle her. She is stubborn and sometimes stupid and didn’t seem to learn. She kept getting herself in trouble and in danger, which she could have easily prevented if she just would have thought for once or even listened. But even though she often tested my patience with her, I enjoyed her. Yes, she had her moments (many of them) but overall she just wanted to do right and is very funny and likeable. Lee, while I liked him better than Indy at times, he also had some issues, he often came over a little too controlling and possessive. But a lot of times I could understand it why he was like that with Indy, to keep her safe. But other times I thought it was a bit much. I really enjoyed the side characters, all of the funny and it felt like the balanced out the craziness that is Lee& Indy. Though the only minor thing that was a little annoying was the whole Lee & Indy hook- up team, How everyone wanted to know what is going on and it spread like a wildfire that they are now “together” , that got a little old after a while. But overall, I really enjoyed this book and laughed to many times and I will defiantly read more books in the series.

I rate it 4 ★

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

“We’re not exactly together and were not, not together. We’re in together-limbo. We’re test-driving together to see if we want to buy it.”

***

“You know, you wouldn't even want a man who wouldn't go back to save someone's mother and a drag queen.”

***

“So, now you’re getting shot at, you’re gonna leave me?” “Girlie, I’m from Texas. We shoot at each other to say good morning.”

***

“I haven’t been avoiding you,”

“You’re lying. The last time we were both at dinner, you got up in the middle of Mom’s fajita presentation and said you forgot to feed your cat.” Uh-oh. “So?” “You don’t have a cat.”

***

Rock Chick Revolution, by Kristen Ashley

 

Book cover

 

My relationship with this series has been up and down. The first three had me gritting my teeth to get through (although there were, in all three books, the expected hilarious scenes) because of the behavior of the female protagonists. They really annoyed me.

But there was this character whose book I really wanted to read (Vance), so I stuck with it. The books got steadily better and now we come to the final one of the series.

Ally's a character I wasn't completely warm to. She seemed a lot like Keely in Lorelie James's "Rough Rider" series. The wild child younger sister who got in everyone's faces (and drives me nuts). I liked Ren from his earlier appearances in RC books, but I thought he was going to get ripped off with Ally as his HEA.

Glad to be wrong. Ally has hidden depths. She was far more thoughtful with Ren than I thought she'd be, even though this book centers around her proving herself to everyone else as much as it focuses on the her romance with Ren. After 7 RC books, this was a total change-up to the format and, for me, it was welcome.

The book does read a little like an epilogue to the series and we check in with the other couples, but the story line itself is engaging. Ren is a wonderful hero and Ally is refreshingly aware of this throughout.

It's a really nice series finale. The RC world isn't over, though, as there's a spin-off series taking place in LA. I'll be looking forward to that, although I really hope we don't get some of the relationship-delaying devices KA used in the earlier Rock Chick books. Since this series developed away from that (for the most part), I have high hopes for LA. :)

Rock Chick Rescue - Kristen Ashley

Not going to give this a huge review, just note that this is a KA that disappointed me a lot. The female lead pushes the male lead away until the very last pages. It becomes seriously annoying. I really did wonder why Eddie stayed so interested in Jet. I wanted to like them both, and I'm not sure that I didn't, I just didn't like them together. I'm hoping that the books following have some participation from them as a couple so I can believe they're not on the same treadmill they were on for this entire book.

KA has shown that she can follow a dud with a great success, so I'm definitely sticking with the series. I was just very disappointed in this installment. :(

Rock Chick Regret (Rock Chick, #7) Review
Rock Chick Regret - Kristen Ashley

Sadie Townsend is known by all as The Ice Princess and she’s worked hard to earn her reputation. Her father, a now-incarcerated Drug Lord, has kept her under his thumb her whole life and she’s learned enough from living in his world to give everyone the cold shoulder. But one inebriated night, she shows the Real Sadie to the undercover agent she knows is investigating her father, the handsome Hector Chavez, and he knows he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

Hector makes one (huge) mistake; he waits for Sadie to come to him. Tragedy strikes and Sadie’s got a choice, she can retreat behind her Ice Fortress or she can embrace the Rock Chick/Hot Bunch World. Guided by Hector, the Rock Chicks, the Hot Bunch and her new gay roommates, Buddy and Ralphie, Sadie negotiates a life out from under her father’s thumb, a life that includes poison, arson and learning how to make s’mores.

 

 

Review

 

This is one of my favorite Ashley books. Its lush. She just goes and goes. She gives us everything. It is an amazing romance. The story starts out brutal. It is off screen but what really makes is the impact of this horrible crime. Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone is human. Sadie blooms. Hector is off the hook.

 

KA author's note says it all about what the book is about which is friendship, taking a hand, and love.

 

Again, I wish Hector hadn't been a man whore before meeting Sadie. I guess we say dudes with this much testosterone... But I am not buying it. He has a mother and sisters. I think I have had this rant before in another KA review so I will stop but seriously, this treating women as object thing is what keeps the book from being five star for me.

 

This book is healing, loving, funny, and hot.  I highly recommend.
