Series: Rock Chick #7
on December 9, 2011
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.
When I accidentally thought Rock Chick Regret was next after Rock Chick Revenge and I read a little of the prologue, I knew this story was going to blow me away. I was right, but I didn’t factor in the heartbreak or tears that would prick my eyes as I read Rock Chick Regret.
Sadie easily became my most favorite heroine out of all the Rock Chicks. She didn’t have the great start, and she didn’t start her story with someone on her team, or in her corner, as the other Rock Chicks had when we first met them. But, I truly believe it was Sadie’s rough start that endeared me more to her character because as Hector said it, she’s got a “will of steel.”
Hector, for a time, came off as insensitive to all that Sadie had gone through and was continuing to go through, but I eventually saw that his persistence was instead love and devotion for Sadie. While Hector did’t make me swoon, he did make me melt. Instead of declaring his dominance as the other alphas did in this series he wooed and seduced Sadie, and me as well. Now that I think about it, he might just be my favorite hero out of this entire series as his leading lady is.
Everything I love about a romantic suspense with comedy thrown in was done in Rock Chick Regret. To be honest I think Hector and Sadie’s story might be my fave out of this series.
I loved everything about Rock Chick Regret.
