Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Thououghly Fun!"

    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!

    Story
    "One of my favs"
    What did you love best about Rock Chick?

    The funny loving crazy mixed family.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rock Chick?

    All of it never a dull moment.


    What does Susannah Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She read it in a way you could she the movie playing in your head. Wonderful.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the whole series but this is the beginning of my love affair. Hope the rest come out on audio.

    Story
    "Dreadful - couldn't finish it"

    I gave this book to about the 7 hour mark before finally bailing on it. It is quite simply dreadful. I was constantly cringing throughout the book. First off I will say the narrator did a good job with material she had to work with, I would listen to her again with another author. I found the book to be ridiculous. I was expecting a light listen but this was just stupid. The lead character Indy is a complete dingbat. The books storyline is outdated and sexist. It was uncomfortable to listen to some of it, particularly the parts where she clearly states No to sex and intimacy and the male lead, Lee, ignores her, basically tells her it doesn't matter her wishes, she really means yes. Ugh, really, feels so date rapey. How about giving us a character with a brain, who is able to advocate for herself sexually (I mean come on the premise she has wanted him for years and finally has her chance), a male who isn't a sexist asshole, and someone who actually is affected by the kidnapping and murders instead of wondering if her lipstick is still good and her underwear is pretty enough. All the surrounding characters are boring and stereotypical. Can't believe I wasted 7 hours on this book.

    Story
    "Indy is a Heroine too Stupid for Words"
    What would have made Rock Chick better?

    Make the heroine Indy Savage a mature and likeable human being. Keep the use of over the top, zany characters to a minimum. I felt like there were way too many crazy characters in this story to be believable. In the case of this book, less is more.


    Has Rock Chick turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not from the book genre, but definitely turned me off from this series of K.A.'s books.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration got a little goofy and over the top for me. In fact her depiction of Indy probably added to the irritation factor. I did like how she portrayed Liam though.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I loved Liam, he's a super smart, sexy man that has his crap together and knows what he wants.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge Kristen Ashley fan, and have read and loved most everything she has written. However, I think I’ve finally found one of her books that I really don’t like at all, because I have no respect for the leading character, and I really, really wanted to like this book. Indy Savage, the heroine of this story, is a waste of oxygen. I mean seriously, I found myself gritting my teeth and eye rolling in utter frustration over her stupidity and immaturity. She’s a major drama queen that over-reacts about absolutely everything. Hyperventilating about normal everyday situations that most reasonable people can work out without all the drama, ugghh! She’s a 30 year old woman with the maturity level of a 15 year old. Her love interest in this story is Liam, who is a mature, smoking hot, sexy, tough alpha male with a dangerous job, who happens to have loved her for years…why? I have no idea. If I were him, I’d run for the hills and get a girl with more than one brain cell. She repeatedly plunges herself into unnecessary danger, even after he warns her to stay put, but does she? Of course not, she stupidly does the exact opposite of anything she’s told to do. She can never answer a direct question from Li without having a retarded inner dialog going on in her head. For instance, in one scene Li asks her, “Do you love me?” Indy: No Answer. Li, getting impatient repeats “Do you love me? Indy: Still no answer while in her mind thinking, “shit! shit!, shit!, shit! Then finally answers with shouting “Li!”Li totally angry now: “Answer me Indy!”Indy: Inner dialog “Shit” but still no answerLi: Explodes from frustration because she doesn’t answerOh for goodness sakes!!! We already know she loves him and has for most of her life, but he’s not sure if she does and needs the reassurance from her. Why, oh why can’t this ridiculous girl just answer the damn question, and quit driving him to unnecessary anger. Dumb, dumb, dumb!!!!! She absolutely doesn’t deserve him. Why would a man like him put up with a twit like her? This insane juvenile crap makes me want to bonk her on the head and put us readers out of our misery. I also agree with the other reviewer that commented on the word use of “Oopsy” and “Oh Boy” in a silly little sing-song voice in her head, being so stupid, I would literally groan out loud every time I heard her say it. I mean really? Aargh! If the heroine in the next book in the Rock Chick series is too stupid to live, I don’t think I’ll waste one of my credits on it, in fact, I’m probably going to ask for a refund on this audio book.K.A. please, please, please don’t create anymore immature, stupid, selfish heroines that are so totally unlikable that I’ll be wary of any future books you may write. Sorry to all of you avid K.A. fans out there, but this one was an epic fail for me.

    "Stupid Chick"

    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.

    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.

    Story
    "If you love Stephanie Plum then this is for you!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to my friends. Fun but romantic book with some suspense too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What does Susannah Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susannah did a wonderful job! I would listen to her again and again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Loved the adventures and craziness Indy got herself into. Lee was a hot alpha male, so that didn't hurt either. Insert swoon here.

    Story
    "Glad I read the Kindle version first"

    I listen to a LOT of audiobooks so I'm a little demanding when it comes to who reads them. If I listened to this story without knowing what a great author Kristen Ashley is, the person reading it would have killed all my interest in the series. And it's an awesome series worth reading and re-reading! Lee's an alphahole in the best sense of the word and you get very little of why that's good in this reading. There are several ways for females to narrate male parts....simply reading in a monotone is not a good one. So boring, with zero nuance! Also, the prissy way she reads Indy's parts (which obviously make up most of the story...and a Rock Chick is anything but prissy) is maddening. I swear she almost whispers when she has to say a bad word. It's not a Regency romance (which she should probably stick with). Yes, as another reviewer noted Indy's a bit immature and gets others into trouble, but the WAY it's read is what makes that so annoying that it sort of takes you out of the story. I hate to compare a Kristen Ashley story to Janet Evanovich's series, but at least she had a couple of narrators that worked hard on pacing and getting different/unique voices for the various characters so you didn't get jolted out of the story when a switch occurred. I think this almost would have been better if a man like Scott Brick had read it! Still love KA, but this was a tough haul.

    "I absolutely ADORED this book!"

    All I have to say is this book is full of the typical KA fun - there are kidnappings, car chases, steamy bedroom scenes, swoony moments, outright hilarious moments, drag queen performances, shoot-outs, explosions, a seriously epic food-fight, a kickass heroine, and one SEXY AS HELL alpha male, and of course, a wonderful love story. I loved every character in this book... Indy, Lee, Ally, Tex, Todd, Duke, the whole entire crew!! So many LOL moments. I'm definitely rating 5 stars because Rock Chick deserves nothing less!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Easy listening and a fun book. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one Not an original story line but well put together. You can see this series getting a lot of mileage as there are heaps of hunky men to choose from and yep you can see where it's headed but still worth the listen

    "So surprised"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I thought this book was about a girl rock band. After reading most of Ms Ashley's books I had bypassed this series even with the awsome reviews. It is a great combination of comedy, danger and romance. I could have done with a little more actuall s-x but the story line kept me disappointed over and over...I'm sure Liam was as well. LOL


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Liam...such a manly man


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first time she woke to him.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh then honestly beg for them to do itttt.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm downloading the rest of the series now.
