Series: Rock Chick #4
Color me shocked! I did not expect to love this story as much as I did. With all but one scene – one moment – Rock Chick Renegade was an absolute pleasure to read!
The ending scene in Rock Chick Redemption left much to be desired, but also feared. In my mind when I would think of the woman who would be the woman to give Vance a run for his money I could have never came up with Jules “The Law” Lawler. What shocked me even more was how she pulled both Luke, Mac, and Ike out of their shells so that we can see a little more of their personalities.
Except for this one moment, this one scene, Rock Chick Renegade was awesome, as I said before. This one thing was so huge that it knocked a whole star of this book’s rating…whoa.
This one thing happens in a lot of Kristen Ashley’s books, and in some of the books it’s justifiable, but it’s in books like Rock Chick Rescue, Rock Chick Redemption, and Rock Chick Renegade, where this is more a nuisance than something that the story naturally progresses to. What I’m talking about is when the heroine has been dealt enough bad crap in her life and then gets a dose of good – usually it’s in the form of men like Hank, Eddie, Vance, and Luke – they then decide it’s time to pack up and leave. When these crazy chicks get this crap in their minds I seriously hold out hope that they’ll see reason and stop telling their men that they’re breaking up with them, but then once it’s been said in every chapter after the very first time until the man shuts the mess down, I’m like “seriously just go already!” It gets so bad that I’m ready to jump in the pages and help them pack and maybe buy them a plane ticket.
Whew! Glad I got that off my mind.
So yeah, once I found out why Jules was doing what she was doing I was all for it. Her little posse of badasses were freaking hilarious but I would’ve liked to have known more about them since they were also pulled into the Rock Chick fold; mainly talking about May, Zip, Heavy, and Frank.
Other than Jules breaking up with Vane and him taking her up on it (later to be found out that it was all a misunderstanding), and she becomes miserable – naturally since she didn’t really want to be separated from him – I wouldn’t change a thing about this story. This book went everywhere with me, bathroom, kitchen, and front room, everywhere. Can’t wait to read Luke’s story, I just hope Ava isn’t stuck up because the way she walked into Nightingale HQ (not really the name) I kind of sensed she had her head stuck up her but.
