My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So, I was cruising through my kindle, looking for an “older” book to feature on my blog when I spotted this wonderful little gem! Kristen Ashley is one of my all time, best-est ever, most favorite authors. Yeah, she puts A LOT of detail in her stories but that’s what I love since I’m a very visual person. Anyway, I first read this book at least six years ago, maybe more and I’ve read it several times but as I was flipping through it, I couldn’t help it…I HAD to read it AGAIN! Indy is such a hilarious character, she’s so relatable with her snark and stubbornness, her AWESOME taste in music and her fabulous tees. Lee is the perfect amount of possessive, protective, supportive and just plain cool. He’s really a SWOON worthy character! Together, they work to solve a mystery that made me want to laugh, cry, scream in frustration and then feel giddy with happiness. And let’s not forget the secondary characters. They’re just a few of the reasons why the Rock Chic series is so successful. I’m glad to have this fun, amazing book on my READ AGAIN E-SHELF! Told from Indy’s POV with a happy ending.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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. Complicting 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.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
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.
