Roxie’s on the run from a bad boyfriend who will not catch the hint that it is o-v-e-r. She’s in no mood for love at first sight, but when her eyes fall on Hank, it’s trouble from the get-go. Roxie tries to hold Hank at arm's length but Hank wants to be a closer (as in, a lot closer). Roxie’s trouble catches up with her and Hank wants to help but Roxie knows in her heart that she’s no good for a white-hat guy. The problem is no one agrees with her, especially her crazy hippie best friend Annette or her parents; the even crazier small-Indiana-town Herb and Trish. Toss into the mix the gang from Rock Chick and Rock Chick Rescue and Roxie finds herself totally outnumbered.
Climb in for another Rock Chick wild ride through Rock Chick Redemption. As the odds stack up against Roxie, she has no choice but to hold on and just ride it out through the kidnappings, car chases, society parties, a riot at the strip club, Hank getting "Mom Bombed" and one crazy night at the Haunted House.
During all this Hank works at convincing her she really wants to stay and he, along with the Hot Bunch, go all out to make her safe. Hank also needs to work on showing Roxie that her past decisions don’t mean her future can’t include something as downright delicious as…normal.

I didn't read the print version, but I can't imagine it would be any better than the audio. It was ably performed and completely engaging.
Where to start?! Action, romance, tons of hilarity. I've gone through the Rock Chick series in order so far, so as of now, this one is definitely my favorite. The heroine wasn't nearly as annoying as Jet in Rock Chick Rescue, and though she was self-deprecating, it wasn't to the point of wanting to tear my hair out. She shares the same insecurities as a lot of women, yet maintains a confidence that the last heroine was sorely lacking.
All of the side characters in this installment were FANTASTIC! They were fully fleshed out and really added to the story. They were engaging without stealing focus from the main storyline.
The action wasn't quite as intense as the previous books for me, but I didn't mind it. If every book was laden with harrowing situations fraught with danger, it would begin to become old hat and expected. I think there was a good balance here, not to dark and dangerous, not to light and fluffy.
She was AMAZING! There were scenes with around 10 characters (probably more) and every single voice was distinct, the emotion of the delivery was right on point, and the pacing was perfect. I've enjoyed her other performances in the series as well as a few that she's done outside the Rock Chick books, and this one was my favorite so far. I think my favorite character was Roxie's mom, Trish, Susannah did a wonderful job with her characterization and delivery.
It was hilarious, I laughed so many times! Some chuckles and some real belly laughs, especially when Roxie's mom was around. Thankfully, unlike the last book, my reaction was NOT to toss my iPad across the room because the characters were making me nutty.
Read/Listen, Review and Recommend!
Holy Moly, I thought Lee was yummy. But Hank has him beat. It’s the quiet ones you have to look out for I swear.
Hank oh Hank.. He is a cop with a heart of gold I swear. And when Roxie comes strolling in to his life she turn it upside down.
Roxie is Tex’s niece, so when she needs help getting an ex off her back she goes to Uncle Tex. Only when she gets there she walks in to Fortnums and POW she see Hank aka Whisky as she thinks of him because his eyes capture her.
‘They were all looking at me, but the minute my eyes hit Whisky, I felt light head and had to stand stalk-still or I’d have fallen over in a dead faint’ - Roxie
Trying to shake her ex isn’t as easy as one would think, so she isn’t in the mood for a relationship but Hank isn’t taking no for an answer. He sees what he wants and he is going for it. But boy does Roxie not make it easy on him. All good things come to those who have to fight a little harder to get it, I say.
“But you saw it, you’re in the middle of it now and II hate that. I’ve gotten used to his stink on me. I can’t allow his stink to settle on you.” - Roxie
I laughed more in this book than the last 2 because omg Roxie’s parents are a HOOT! And Tex is just as funny and witty as always but he has more of a roll this time or it seems like it.
“Can’t say this is the best neighborhood, but four slashed tired? That has to be a record.” “Unle Tex—“ I started. “Welp!” he boomed, bending over to pick up my suitcases. “Guess you aren’t leavin’ today.”
What are you waiting for read this series; I love how this narrator has a voice for every character but not in a cheesy way. It just flows so effortlessly.
*All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*
Have every single one of them.
The girls having each other's back and the loyalty of all the characters
The dinner introducing Jet to Eddie's family
Only if they left out the "eeek" out! And made Jet stronger and less whimpy.
Seems if there is a strong man in the story (which there always is) the women associated with them are whimps and such air heads, very frustrating, All strong men seek the same in their women. Lee and Ally for instance........
I picked up this book on sale and kicked my own a** for not getting the other books with the sale. I am a Kristen Ashley fan for life. This author falls in the same type of character writing as Robyn Carr if you are a fan of her writing too. You find yourself drawn to the characters in the story but then you can't wait to read the story's of the others because the characters are so funny or quirky. I WILL read the entire series. Each book can be read as a stand alone but I promise you will not want to stop at one.
The Rock Chick series is a hoot to listen to. The story format is the same from book to book but the new one liners keep me laughing. The performance for the main characters is okay but it would be nice to have a little more variety when it come to supporting characters. Overall a great series.
I was often times listening to this book while walking my cocker spaniel, Teddy. I found myself often time laughing out loud especially listening to Roxy talk about her parents. I highly recommend this book.
Roxy has so much spirit loved her.
I wanted to like this one. A woman beaten down with a low self image, I understand how she's afraid to believe Mitch could like her. A few scenes I lost track of Mitch, which seemed out of character. Their interactions with the kids were really good.
I love the way the Hot Bunch Guys always get what they want & never take NO for an answer. This book is no different from the first two in a good way. The Rock Chicks are loyal to the bone and always protect their own at ALL cost.
I love Alpha Male characters & Sassy, Strong Women characters, and this book had Both in spades! It also has comedy which is always a plus. It was none stop action packed with plenty of comic relief. The love story was written fabulously not to much and not to little.
"not for the faint hearted"
Wow. Action, heart racing, tingles, romance, family and kick-ass friends.
What more could a girl ask for .
