Rock Chick Reawakening

Rock Chick Reawakening - Kristen Ashley description

To say this was one of my MOST anticipated books of the year would be an understatement. The ROCK CHICK series is by far one of my most favorite series. In fact, to date, I have re-read it 14 times (except for Ally's book. I didn't like that one *lol*)

"A woman like you should have had a momma who loved her. A daddy who adored her. Friends who thought the world of her. She should have grown up every day knowing that straight to her soul, never doubting it, not for a second"

That said, that last 8 or 9 books KA has put out have been HUGE misses for me. It seemed like she had lost the magic that made the (ROCK CHICK, SWEET DREAMS, KNIGHT etc) such fabulous reads. So as excited as I was that we were finally going to get a book about Daisy and Marcus, I was also nervous that it was going to be a huge disappointment to me.


Well, I am can firmly say that this one DID NOT disappoint! This felt like KA of old. To be honest, that pisses me off a little. Because if you STILL have the ability to write like this, then WTF is your excuse for the hot messes you have been pushing out lately? But I digress like I said this one felt like we never left the ROCK CHICK world. I laughed. I cried. I fell in love with Daisy all over again. I got to know Marcus on a deeper level. It has fun little cameos and an AWESOME epilogue. I'd LOVE to see a new series featuring the children of all the rock chicks (hint hint.)

It was ALMOST perfect. It was a tiny bit too slow burn for me. The sexy times don't come until very near to the end of the book. Personally, I would have liked it a bit sooner, but that was just a minor personal taste thing. There was also some copy and paste cliche KA stuff like "stop being cute" and "you're a pain in the ass" etc. This author really needs to come up with some new one-liners. And, as much as I did enjoy this one, I don't see it being re-read material for me. It wasn't quite perfect enough for that, but pretty damn close.
