Ally Nightingale has secrets. Secrets she doesn't even share with the Rock Chicks. But two men know what she's up to. One has her back. The other has her heart, but he doesn't know it.

As Ally rewinds the last year of her life, she knows two things. One, she’s never going to get what every Rock Chick should have—her own Hot Bunch guy. And two, she’s a Nightingale through and through. She just isn’t sure what to do about that.

But as her secrets are revealed, the men in her life react. Darius Tucker, a lifelong friend, as usual takes her back. Ren Zano, the man she loves, isn’t quite so sure. The Rock Chicks, Hot Bunch and the entire gang at Fortnum’s weigh in, and a Rock Chick Revolution starts brewing.

It’s up to Ally to control it and prove what she knows down to her bones.

She’s a Rock Chick, she deserves her hot guy and she’s going to keep the one she wants…

Because she’s a Nightingale.

I was so ready to skip over Rock Chick Revolution because just from the little I’d read of its story at the end of Rock Chick Regret I was not feeling the shenanigans I thought were going to take place. Also, it was from that little that I read that I easily got a distaste for Ally’s character, maybe because I thought that she was going to play games with Ren, I’m not entirely sure why now that I think about it.

But color me shocked that I not only enjoyed Rock Chick Revolution but Ally might be my favorite Rock Chick! I seriously didn’t think that another heroine in the Rock Chick series would be able to top Jules and Sadie as my favorite but them and Ally are fighting for that number one position.

Just like what I seem to be doing for Nalini Singh and her stories, I need to go in to each Kristen Ashley story without any expectations or assumptions and just follow where the story leads. I thought that I would’ve already learned my lesson with the number of Ashley books I have under my name but I guess not.

Additionally, I didn’t expect Ren to grow on me as fast and as good as he did. I think my hesitancy towards his character had more to do with the fact that he wasn’t officially a member of the Hot Bunch so I was iffy about my likability of him. With the way Ashley delivered his storyline and background I’m kind of hoping that in the future she chooses to do a mafia series or something of the sort because Ren was so smooth and he seriously gave me heart eyes.

Rock Chick Revolution was so much more than just Ally and Ren’s story because we finally get closure to Darius’ story as well as what the after contains for a Rock Chick that has gotten her guy and the drama is over. So much was going on, but not in an overwhelming way, that you literally have to experience all that Rock Chick Revolution has to offer, it was the perfect finale.

There wasn’t one moment of Rock Chick Revolution that I would change because this was the greatest conclusion to the most unique and diverse romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and comedic romance series I’ve ever read!

With that being said, when are the L.A. stories coming out?!

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
