Jet McAlister has a secret. Eddie Chavez has the hots for Jet (not to mention Eddie’s just plain hot). Jet has too many problems to realize that Eddie’s interested. Eddie loses patience when Jet ends her waitressing shift at a strip club with a knife at her throat. Since Eddie’s a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet’s used to solving everyone’s problems she doesn’t want Eddie’s help.
Throw in a Dolly Parton look-alike, a gruff but lovable strip club owner, Jet’s ne’er do well father, his ne’er do well friend, Bear, Bear’s long-suffering, chain-smoking wife Lavonne and the crew from Rock Chick and you’ve got Rock Chick Rescue.
Rock Chick Rescue takes you on a wild ride with Jet, Eddie and the gang as they wrestle bad guys in a bagel shop, hit Denver’s backstreet poker tables (with big hair), and help the strippers at Smithie’s take down a would-be murderer.
Through this, Jet’s got to learn that even when life made you give up your dreams, you can still end up with the (hot) guy. Eddie’s got to rescue Jet from a bad man (so he can do better things with her) and teach her that some dreams can come true.

I really hate writing poor reviews, especially for an author that I will forever be a fangirl for! This series may not be for me. I enjoyed the first book, but right from the start of RESCUE I wasn't drawn in; the narration was not working for me, nor the main character's personalities. Some of the humor was predictable and slap stick, the sexy scenes were lukewarm at best, and the overall storyline just--lacked. She's definitely produced better. All that said, I am going in for book 3 because of course, Kristen Ashley is still one of my favorite authors hands down!
i love the characters, the series but it was very hard to listen to "eeks, uh ohs and du das" i mean really, who says that? hoping the next book is better
This was good, but I liked book one more. I will get book 3 at some point, but for now I have other books that I want more. Still, I like that I have a series to go back to.
I am in full agreement with the reviewer "Judi of Vancouver!" If the word eek or the word shish hadn't been thrown at this listener so many times. This book might not have been so bad. But good grief I almost wanted to pull my hair out from them being repeated so many times. If this had been the first book I bought by this author it would have been the last. Due to the amount of action she keeps pulling me back to her books. I could do with 1/2 of the sex scenes but can deal with them by pulling the ear plugs out until there is something worth while to listen to again.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I absolutely love the way this book started! Poor Jet.. who had the hot for Eddie...but oops! She made him think that she was racist! Well that didn't fly to well with the Hot Bunch or with Indie and Allie! Great story... and Jet was just perfect as a Rock Chick! Loved all the action with Jet and her strip club posse... This book was all round great! Straight listen. Love KA Books.. never read/listen to a bad one!
Laugh, cry, swoon, laugh again, rapid heartbeats at the suspense, laugh again.
K. A. is awesome. The character development and plot are excellent. Jet's character was interesting. I've never heard someone say "eek" and refer to down there as a "dooda". I thought her character was HILARIOUS and I love how she grew as a character as I listened to the book. I could relate a lot to her. It was very well done and admirable.
Eddie was just delicious. He had his work cut out for him but he never strayed from what he wanted. Again---freaking admirable.
Susannah Jones was awesome. She's a great narrator for all these characters.
Motorcycle Man will always be my favorite. But the Rock Chick series---well...rocks! Lol.
So thank you K.A. Thank you for delivering swoon-worthy books. PLEASE keep them coming.
I am a Kristen Ashley fan but this was painful. Jet is one of the most unattractive heroines I have listened to in awhile. And Susannah Jones just makes her even more annoying. If i hear "eek" one more time. . . . just plain ridiculous. And there is no chemistry between Jet and Eddie. I listened to the whole book but it was a struggle. Not sure why I stuck with it other than I kept hoping it would get better. It didn't.
First let's see oh right what was wrong with jet she gives the blonds in this world a bad rap. She didn't listen to anything anyone ever said to her. She constantly gets in trouble which could have easily been avoided if she listened hence the word listen. Eddie told her often enough how he felt about her and over her ditzy blond head it went. Otherwise the story was just as good as her other books love it .
loved this and the first... but this one was a bit of the same... I'm seeing a pattern... hot girl who has low self-esteem, gets into trouble and hot guy who likes her rescues her... and she doesn't listen/tries to rescue herself/gets into more trouble and ends up handcuffed to something...
I think if the writing weren't so freakin funny I'd have bailed by now, but I'm thinkin I might just go ahead and read the next one!
also, everyone has flip phones... hahaha!
With each book that I have read and/or listened to in this series just got better! This book is at the top of my list.
I don't know of another book to compare this one too unless maybe it was Kristen Ashley's Motorcycle Man series or her Unfinished Heroes series. They both have strong, alpha men, headstrong women, romance, and lots of comedy in them.
Susannah Jones' voice and the tone she used really brought out the hilarity in these audio books. She is the best narrator I have heard yet! I really hope she narrates more of Kristen Ashley's books and other similar authors.
There were lots of moving moments in this book! I cried and laughed all the way through them. Kristen Ashley really knows how to write a good romance book with comedy and Susannah Jones read it perfectly!
I really had high hopes for this book after so enjoying the first. However disappointment ensued after realising that this is an almost replica of the first book; the focus relationship is nearly identical along with the sequence of events. The sex scenes are superfluous and awkward, and I could not get to grips with the main character referring to her lady part as a 'doo dah' (a term normally reserved for the package your pet dog deposits while out on a walk).
The performance is wonderful and I really enjoy Susannah's voice (maybe not so much whilst uttering the term doo dah!) but I am left wondering I want to continue with this series. *spoiler alert* Will they all be the same formulaic 'boy meets girl, girl needs help, boy protects girl from bad guys, freakishly hot guy falls for low self esteem girl and pursues in controlling manner'.
"Hot Hot Hot"
Wow. Action, romance, family and kick-ass friends. What more could a girl ask for .
"Oh god Eddie please just shoot her!"
I love the Rock Chick series and have read them all on Kindle and decided to download them to enjoy in the car and the office. I found Jet high irritating when I read the book but the audible version just made me want to shoot her. She is a whining, whinging, completely clueless and selfish person. She has no idea and has the mental fortitude of a 5 year old. Of all the rock chick books this woman is no rock chick more road kill!
