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.

    Story
    "Painful"

    Main characters are not likeable. Indy is not smart and not "cute" as she is so often described in the book. She's irresponsible and immature and uninteresting and none of the details about her character made her a "rock chick" except that she keeps describing herself that way. Lee, the love interest, is jealous and controlling and their relationship is really unhealthy and wasn't fun to read about. He kept bossing her around and she kept giving in and they kept having the same conversations over, and over, and over again. It was painful. I also didn't like the reading, but I'm not sure I can blame the narration since there wasn't much that could be done with the inane and repetitive dialogue.

    "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.

    "Too much foul language!"
    What disappointed you about Rock Chick?

    Overall the book was way too long. And although I am not a prude, I really got tired of hearing the "F" word and the "S" word. Barely a sentence went by without swearing.


    What could Kristen Ashley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The swearing was over the top and offensive. Clean up the language!


    What aspect of Susannah Jones’s performance would you have changed?

    I enjoyed the performance.


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

    I wanted to like it. It started out a cute story.


    Any additional comments?

    This could have been a fun book but it was way too long. Way too repetitive. Way too much foul language.

    "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!

    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.

    "Love this book!"

    Admittedly I have been on a kick lately with rock and roll books so when I saw "Rock Chick" I thought, oh cool it's about a girl band, awesome....that will show me not to read the synopsis! This book has little to nothing to do with rock and roll or even music.

    This is the story of Indy Savage...cool name for a rocker, BUT she is actually a 30 year old woman who owns a used book store, but she has "rock chick" attitude! I guess the author didn't want to use the title of "Free Spirit Chick", or "Hippie Chick", or "New Age Chick"...and I have to say "Rock Chick" fits her. This character is SOOO much fun to listen to, the narrator was absolutely perfect!

    A typical day for Indy is going to her store, watching her coffee guy have an artist melt down...because you have to be an artist to make coffee THAT good...hanging out with her best friend Ally and generally getting into all kinds of mayhem...not of her own doing of course, these things just seem to happen to her, she has no idea why! She has been in love with her best friends older brother since the age of 5 but gave up on him 10 years ago when he shot her down for like the 20th time...she has made a nice life for herself and just seems like she would be a lot of fun to be around...and to be honest she must have been a joy to write.

    Liam Nightingale, a.k.a Lee, is Ally's older brother, and the focal point of Indy's crush...he was in special forces and now runs a PI firm...and he is alpha hot swoon worthy. He has a good life but he has never been able to get past wanting Indy, but their timing has always been off. When he finds her in his bed running from some bad guys he strikes a deal with her.....she stays safe and he gets her....the problem is Indy is NOT okay with his sudden about face, I mean she has been avoiding him at all family functions for at least 10 years so this is just confusing!

    This book was SOOO funny, I laughed so hard it hurt, and I could just imagine these characters would be a blast to hang out with. Well written, perfectly narrated, WONDERFUL book! Not too fluffy, not too serious, just the right amount of steam, without being an intense book it kept me wanting to hear what happened next from chapter one.

    Love love love this book! If you are in need of a great listen that won't drag you down you HAVE to buy this book :- )

    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.

    "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.

    "OMG!!!! ROCK CHICKS!!!!"

    Rock Chicks!!! I have been a fan of the series for freaking EVAH! So having the first book of the series is like every birthday, anniversary, and Christmas all rolled into one!

    Kristen Ashley writes with depth and a keen sense of comedic wit.

    Of course being a good writer does NOT a good audio book make! Kristen Ashley paired with Susannah Jones does!

    One of the things that I love about Ms. Ashley's books is her strong characters, from the main characters to the support or secondary characters. They are distinctive and most definitely colorful! So that means you NEED to have a storyteller who can keep up!

    Ms. Jones brings it in a big way! She does an excellent job making each of the characters' voices unique and with plenty of emotion, she makes Rock Chick sing!!!!

    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    Story
    "Fluffy, formulaic series"

    Fluffy and fun, the first book (and best) in a series of love stories is enjoyable and fairly well written. Indy Savage owns a used-bookstore/cafe where an amusing group of friends gathers regularly. Indy meets Lee Nightingale who owns a private investigation company. Lee moves in, after knowing Indy since childhood, as he protects her from a crazy succession of attacks caused by the side business of a cafe employee. Some grammatical problems, but because it's written in first person, this could be intentional.

    About the series: I have listened to books 1 - 6 and found each one a repeat of the first love story. In fact, the love interests from one book to the next are so closely matched in characteristics that the author must have copied some of the dialog word-for-word. Still, they offer adequate entertainment, especially if you listen to other authors in between listening to books in this series.

    "5 Rock Chick Star"


    I have read, and re read this series this is the 4th time I think. But I never reviewed it. One because I didn’t think I could say all the things I love about each book without it being a novel in and of itself. But figured I should give it a shot.

    India Savage or Indy has been in love with Liam Nightingale or Lee as we call him since she was 5 yrs old.

    Lee has a brother Hank who is a cop and a sister Ally who is a part time employee at Fortnum’s the used book story Indy owns, and bar tends. Ally and Indy are the besties to end all besties. And they would scheme and plan calling it The Great Liam Chase how it would be if Indy ever married her brother. And they did this up until Lee at 23 told Indy 20 he only though of her as a sister.

    ‘Lee Nightingale had gone from a bonfire to a towering f * * ng inferno in ten years.’ - Indy

    Now, Lee is tired of waiting he wants Indy and he put himself in the right path to make it happen. She was too young then, but she isn’t now. Oh but Indy doesn’t not make it easy on Lee at all. No way, no how.

    Holy shit! He was already telling other people! And I hadn’t even agreed!
    “I’m not yours!”
    “You will be tonight.”

    Oh Lee.. Sigh

    I think I like that best about this book. She was afraid to love as much as she does. I think because she lost her mom so young, this made her afraid to love that much.

    “Yes! Of Course I love you, you big dope! I’ve loved you since I was five!” - Indy

    The wit is freaking outstanding in this book. The music and movie references are epic. But I think the gem for me is Tex, the ex-con, ex-army, cat loving, coffee god.

    He truly steals the show for me, he has such a huge heart you can’t help but want to be besties with him. Or at least I do.. Hey maybe that makes me weird and that’s alright.

    Then there is also Stevie and Tod, Indy’s next door neighbors. Not only are they awesome because they take care and look out for Indy but they have a chow and gave her the best name ever! Chowleena, but not only that Tod is the top drag queen in Denver, awesome!!

    “Tell me again why you don’t want him in your panties?” – Stevie - Ha ha!

    I listened to the audiobook and wow, I can't even tell you how awesome it is. I think this narrator is my all time favorite. She is so expressive. She is perfect for these books!!

    *All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*
