Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") 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.

If you are looking to listen to explicit sex and NO story line this is the book for you
Absolutely, this was advertised as a likeness to the Stephanie Plum Series it was nothing like it at all. I ordered two of these before I listened to the first one both going back
Disgusted over the explicit sex
There are characters and there are relationships - or failure to have relationships. For the first 3 chapters there is no a plot. There is no action. The first chapter tells us 3 people were shot at, but only tells us as a past tense aside. The action is not narrated. It is left to the third chapter to mention, not explain, why they were shot at. So by the fourth chapter we have not seen anything happen and only had brief, non-informative conversations.
The first three chapters are used to set up the back story for introduction of an unavailable hot male. We now have a plot of "He said he wasn't interested", versus "Why is she avoiding me".
The performance is adequate for the material provided but the writing and bland humor cannot carry this turkey. Avoid it.
PS. Maybe the writer gets better in later books but I'm not interested in investing anymore time or money to find out.
story line, in general;
no- the main character, India, behaves like a 13 year old in her relationships- immature to the point of annoyance
will not listen to remainder of series
I enjoy mystery series with a bit of humor and some with some historical facts. I enjoy getting to know the same characters from book to book and am always disappointed when the series is finished. I have my favorite narrators such Scott Brick, Susan Erricson, Lorelei King, Christian Rummel and Will Patton to name a few. I have even been known to read a book because of the narrator and have found some good books this way.
If you like woman who make fools over themselves over men then you might like this book. But for me I don't like books who have women controlled by their hormones or men. I found the character a spoiled brat and finally had to fast forward to the last chapter. I also listened to the free chapter from the next book and seems like she's the same type of character. I won't be reading anymore.
Kristen's narration was fine with what she had to work with.
I'm a relationship coach (QueenBeesCoaching), survived raising my children and have a loving relationship. Life is good!
I'm going to return this book as it has made my teeth hurt from grinding them as I listen to this book. The 'star' of the book is too damn cute. She knows it, brags about it.. a very narcissistic personality. In a cute little girly voice she says 'Oopsie' a LOT. Then there are the 'Yikes' when she's caught, or the 'Uh-oh'. All in that ... 'What, you're mad a little ol' ME?' little girl voice. Ugh.
Supposedly she owns a bookstore which she inherited from her grandmother, but rarely does she show up at work. Employees are hired with no set schedule (apparently it 'works'), there is no one worrying about bookkeeping, bank deposits, etc.. it's just there to show she can support herself, and why she's chasing after an errant employee who has become involved with stolen diamonds.
Then there is Lee, who she has lusted after for her entire life. OF COURSE, he - the big bad hottest dude EVAH! is madly in love with her and just HAPPENS to be involved with finding the diamonds. After he cuffs her to the bed for hours and hours while he investigates. Can we say 'bathroom break' here?
This story is too fluffy and little girlish for me. I'm trying to hang in there till the end to see if the story finale is worth the pain and punishment of listening to this audiobook.
The sad part is that the narrator has done a good job really. It's just the VOICE .. 'Oopsie'. WHAT?
I honestly think I would have done better struggling through reading this book than listening to the narration. It made an already irritating too-girly character supremely annoying.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Rock Chicks, Book 1, by Kristen Ashley was a surprise to me. I'm not sure why because I have enjoyed several of Kristen's books. I will start by saying that I didn't love the cover...and that made me a bit skeptical, and even hesitant to begin. But when I did...to my delight, I discovered a light-hearted, lol, funny diversion from several of her other books.
A little reminiscent of "Stephanie Plum"...including a hilariously witty protagonist named Indie, missing diamonds, lots of clever antics; a motley collection of characters that I just loved, and, of course, hot Alpha's...I have already pre-ordered Book 2 which will be on audio June 10, 2014!
Enjoy this book! It is definitely Credit Worthy!
Well it's actually not Dan. It's his wife who can't figure out how to change that on the profile. But I love to read and listen to books.
I would recommend this book to my friends. Fun but romantic book with some suspense too.
This book had a perfect balance of romance, humor and suspense. Reminded me a lot of the Stephanie Plum series. Story line had an engaging plot and didn't end in a cliff hanger!!! It was HEA just the way I like it. Of course you were introduced to the characters in the next Rock Chick book and I can't wait to read that one too.
Susannah did a wonderful job! I would listen to her again and again.
Loved the adventures and craziness Indy got herself into. Lee was a hot alpha male, so that didn't hurt either. Insert swoon here.
I read and listen.
The funny loving crazy mixed family.
All of it never a dull moment.
She read it in a way you could she the movie playing in your head. Wonderful.
I love the whole series but this is the beginning of my love affair. Hope the rest come out on audio.
I thought with all the positive reviews this would be at least a fun read. I wanted to toss my iPhone out the window. Can I just say that Lee and Indy deserve each other. The story is a recycled romance. There were the typical cookie cutter secondary characters, the flaming gay, grease ball mob guy, and the crazy vet. The only thing original was how annoying the heroine was throughout the entire story.
I'll take a pass on the rest of the books in the series.
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
I liked SJ. She is not my number one but I can say she is within my top 10 narrators. This is my second KA book, and I am not looking to try a third anytime soon which is a shame because she has potential!
Lee came off as a jerk. Indie came off as a child.
Hank, Indie and the Kevster and a whole lot of pot plants.
Nope. Just a book that went from great to boring.
Careful, this is a very girly-type book with one too many OMG's and Holy sh* sh* sh*. The female characters will make you want to say "are you kidding me!" Their antics started of as funny then turned to annoying. The guys all have issues and seem very detached and quite frankly jerks.
