Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley


CONTEST NOW CLOSED

Here we are, day 1, book 1, of my 

ROCK CHICK SERIES RE-READ REVIEW CELEBRATION!! 

Those of you who know me know I'm a HUGE fan of Kristen Ashley's writing, and so it stands to reason I'm a HUGE fan of her ROCK CHICK series. It's a series about romance, passion, action, adventure... but most importantly, it's a series about amazing women who become friends and love each other deeply and unconditionally. 

With the recent release of ROCK CHICK REVOLUTION, the 8th and final book in her ROCK CHICK series, I decided to do a re-read of all the books, 1-7, back to back. Over the next several days I'll be sharing my original review thoughts with you, as well as my re-read reviews.

And guess what???

At the end of this 8 day CELEBRATION, I'll be giving away 1 ebook copy of any ROCK CHICK book, to 3 winners, so be sure and stop by every day and post a comment to be entered for a chance to win 1 of the 3 copies, your choice, of Kristen Ashley's ROCK CHICK books. 
Open to US residents only.

You must comment on each book review to win!



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.

Re-read Review - August 19-21, 2013

You know, I've got so much going on in my life. Most of its great, but some not so great, so I decided I need to surround myself with some totally kickass women and hot, alpha males... So here I am doing a Rock Chick re-read! And I'm. In. Heaven!

Spending time with Indy, Lee, Ally...the entire cast and crew...exactly what I need. I've been giggling my butt off and loving every minute. I'm bumping my rating up to 5 stars because Rock Chick deserves nothing less!

Original Review

Indy Savage had been crushing on Lee Nightingale since she was five years old, but time and time again she’d thrown herself at him only to be shot down. The final and most humiliating rebuff came ten years ago when Lee told Indy that she was like a sister to him, and from that time on Indy did all she could do to avoid him. But when Indy’s friend and employee, Rosie, becomes the target of some very bad guys, and Indy gets dragged into it, hard-ass, won’t-take-no-for-an-answer, private investigator Lee makes sure that Indy’s days of avoiding him are over, once and for all.

Rock Chick is funny, fast paced, sexy as all get out… exactly what I’ve come to expect from a Kristen Ashley story. Macho, hot, obnoxiously über alpha men and strong, independent, but loving and compassionate women pulled me in and kept me coming back for more. Lee and Indy make a great couple, and the supporting cast of friends and family kept me up until the wee hours of the morning, laughing out loud, fanning myself, and hoping it would never end.

Such a great start to the Rock Chick series!

  2. This is a starter book for me. Anyone who asks me for a recommendation for a contemporary romance, gets Rock Chick. I love the series and although, I'm sorry to see it end, I thought Revolution was the perfect ending and am looking forward to seeing the New Bunch in LA

    1. Yes, you gotta!!!

      I read the first 7 Rock Chick books, back to back. I had to wait for Revolution like everyone else did. SUCKED, but was worth the wait!

      And to tell you how awesome the books are, I've NEVER, as in NEVER, EVER, re-read an entire series before. But I am, back to back, Rock Chicks!

      Soooooooooooo good!

      Thanks for posting, and good luck!

    1. Thank YOU for commenting, Danielle! I have only a handful of authors I auto buy, AND gift their books to others, and Kristen Ashley is one of them. These books make me smile. They're feel good, fantastic stories about hot, sexy alphas and amazing, loving, compassionate, hysterically funny women.

  6. Oh Rock Chick #1 the book that started my obsession with Kristen Ashley,how I love thee! I've read & re-read this series like 4 times already. After I read this book, I thought no one could love Lee more then I did. I couldn't think of a better representation of an Alpha male. Then I read book 2,3 and so on and fell in love with the hot bunch.
