Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley; Book Review

I love reading, and a few years ago I stumbled upon Kristen Ashley- my (now) favorite author! Rock Chick is really the book from which many of her series link back to and is definitely worth reading!  It is packed with romance, drama, a bit of action and intrigue, and I absolutely love it.

Here’s what ‘they’ say about it;

 Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so โ€œformerโ€) and current used bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

This book is absolutely packed with everything I love in a story and I am constantly recommending it to people. It actually took me a while to try this book- even though I loved all of the Kristen Ashley books I had read- the blurb of this book just didn’t appeal to me. I’m glad I gave it a whirl though, because I think I’ve now read it about 10 times!!

Here’s my run down-

The story (like any good romance novel) begins with our heroine, Indy; rock chick, coffee and book store owner, in a spot of bother but being the independent chicky that she is instead of calling in the cavalry- most especially her police officer father and friends- she tries going it, mostly alone.  Enter our dashing hero Lee Nightingale (awesome name) who swoops in and makes an effort to sort out the mess Indy has gotten herself into.

Now Indy has been in love with Lee since he held her hand at her mothers memorial service, and after what sounds like some pretty creative attempts to get Lee to fall for her, she gave up hope of having her love returned and is now not only running from the bad guys, but also from Lee in a bit of a misguided attempt to guard her heart, after having it broken by him once before #unrequitedlove

 I won’t ruin the book for those who take my advice and read it but there is a kidnapping (or two), some laugh out loud moments (many involving Tex- a fairly crazy, cat sitting Vietnam vet, and Tod- Indy’s drag queen, flight attendant, neighbor), plenty of steamy scenes and a few catfights, and a virtual tour of Denver *warning reading this series will make you want to hop on a flight to Colorado*, but of course Lee and Indy get their happily ever after and it all ends up safe and happy.

I loved the book so much-I bought the t-shirt! (all proceeds distributed via Rock Chick Nation for women’s & children’s charities)

So give it a whirl, try one of my all time favorite books, you can buy it from Amazon in paperback or Kindle, and from most bookstores.

Do you have a favorite book I should read- let me know!!
