Building Castles

I have wanted this story for SO long, and it did not disappoint. I loved the insights into Daisy's childhood and her struggles and a little more info on just what kind of a man Marcus is. From the Rock Chick series, we already knew about Daisy's trauma at Smithies, and I was relieved that the graphic details were omitted for this short novella and that Marcus' aftercare and their love story was the main focus. The epilogue was a beautiful gift from KA to Daisy, Marcus and all their fans.

This is a MUST HAVE to complete the series and has some cute cameos where Daisy casually notices future friends long before they are introduced. Short but sweet. Perfect!

Very disappointing

I decided to try this book since it had so many five-star reviews and I was very disappointed. The female lead is very unlikeable and the entire story was just plain boring. I seriously don't understand all the reviews.

Just what I needed

Yes there was a tragic event, but it wasn't made into this "too dark" event, and the language wasn't "to raw", this was the perfect love story... A great KA read.... not sure I'll read the series but very happy I gave in to the novella.

So Good

Now I have to go back and listen to all the old ones. This was the best series and I'm so glad we were able to hear Daisy's story. Rock On!

5 Rock Chick Reawakening Stars

OMG… I want to have a man build a Castle for me!!
Marcus .. Swoon stole my beating heart!

I have been dyeing to learn more about Daisy since forever it feels like, she just has that charisma you can’t help but want to be near or learn about. Nothing seems to get her down, this book oh my it just hits you in the feels.

She deserves a Marcus more than anyone. She has her own hot guy right there.
This book is about her before Marcus and how she meets him and how they come a couple but it’s so much more. It’s a true love story.
It’s a story of how Marcus love’s Daisy. You can’t get more love story than that. I swear.

If you are even a little bit of a Rock Chick fan you’re going to want to pick up your kindle or your paperback, grab the audiobook and read this heartwarming love story of two who come one.

I bow down to Kristen Ashley for all of her work, but the Rock Chicks just have that extra place in my heart and it just grew today because of Daisy and Marcus.

I loved the narrator <3 She did a great job and she used her "Daisy" voice.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Marcus and Daisy

What a great love story. My only problem, I wish it had been longer. Susannah Jones does a wonderful job voicing the characters. If you have read the Rock Chicks books, you will love this prequel about the love story between Marcus and Daisy.

its just one of those stories!

I dig this story! Its heavy, its light and pretty much describes girl logic... in which every person who dates a woman... can totally understand...Outside of that, I pray my child will never have to build a castle in her mind... only on solid ground to live in.

Even better on Audible

I read this and absolutely loved it, but did a re-read via audible and I think I loved it more! Susannah Jones was amazing as Daisy! From the conclusion of the review for the book:
Kristen Ashley gives readers everything we didn’t know we wanted and more with Rock Chick Reawakening. With so many huge fans clamoring for this story Kristen Ashley rose to the challenge and made it even better than I could have dreamed, and did it all in a novella that felt full-length. Marcus has always been a background character. I wondered how sweet Daisy ended up with a criminal, but I never really knew him. Well to know him is to love him, because Marcus is the bomb! Both Daisy and Marcus’s background will tear you up and piece you right back together again, better than you were before, just like they did for each other. Rock Chick Reawakening brought the Rock Chick Series full circle, and I couldn’t have imagined a better end (or beginning) to a favorite series.

Short but sweet

This is a short book and I had already read this on kindle so I knew it would be good. This is the story of Marcus, who operates his business on the “wrong side of the law”, and his Dolly Parton lookalike ex-stripper wife. These two glorious stereotypes have appeared often in past Kristen Ashley books and like many readers I was fascinated by them both and how their relationship formed. It is typical of Ashley’s superb skill as a writer that two side characters can grow and develop to such an extent that the readers need to know more.

This is a love story about the meeting of two “soul mates”. Both are products of tragic childhoods and both fought hard to get away from poverty, using unconventional means that were the only avenues available to them. Their meeting and subsequent relationship starts with tragedy, but their path to happiness is fabulous to read and makes the reader really fall in love with both these characters. The epilogue and ending is Kristen Ashley at her best, but I do wish she had skipped the part where she roll-called every past couple from every previous book in the series. It was unnecessary and just drew the reader away from the magic bubble that we were enjoying with this very unique couple, because all I could think from this scene was where on earth did they manage to get last minute baby sitters for 17 kids???

AWESOME

I never usually write a review, although I am a massive Kristen Ashley fan, I've read nearly all her books & listened to them as well. This tied the Rock Chick series up so well!!!!!
LOVED Susannah Jones, other books of KA read by Kate Russell were a little irritating due to the narrating but Susannah was brilliant as the southern bell Daisy 😃 Loved how KA revisited all those awesome Rock Chicks, I want to listen to them again. Also really liked how Marcus came across from the reading. I just wish it didn't end!!!!
