From New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Ashley, comes the long-awaited story of Daisy and Marcus, Rock Chick Reawakening. A prequel to Kristen’s Rock Chick series, Rock Chick Reawakening shares the tale of the devastating event that nearly broke Daisy, an event that set Marcus Sloane—one of Denver’s most respected businessmen and one of the Denver underground’s most feared crime bosses—into finally making his move to win the heart of the woman who stole his.



Casey says…

One of my absolute favorite series by one of my absolute favorite authors. I can not imagine any other way this story could have been any more perfect (except maybe a full length novel LOL). I have always wanted to hear more about Daisy and Marcus’ story, not only how they got together but a bigger peak into what makes them, them- and of course Kristen Ashley did not disappoint.

“Daisy, where am I gonna put sparkle? she asked, staring down at her mostly nude body. “Glue gun the shit outta some and put it over your coochie, girl”

Daisy was such a typical Rock Chick in that she fought against what Marcus knew he wanted and would have eventually one way or another. Marcus was everything I knew and expected him to be. Sweet, scary, sexy and mysterious are a few of many words that come to mind.I never thought I could love these 2 any more than I already did, but I do- I so so do. We got the general story of both characters that we both expected but there were so many unsuspected surprises too.

“Your laugh sounds like bells,” he whispered

I enjoyed the snippits and cameos of other characters from several of KA’s other books- its always gives me the warm fuzzies visiting with old friends. And as we have come to expect- it was all tied up nice and neat in a pretty bow, giving us that glimpse of the future in Rock Chick land.

 

 

Excerpt

“Who’s that tall, dark drink of handsome water?” I asked Ashlynn, my eyes on the tall man with broad shoulders and fabulous suit who was sauntering out of the club in the manner of a man who owned it.

In the manner of a man who owned anything he wanted.

“Don’t go there,” Ashlynn answered.

I looked to Ashlynn.

“What, sugar?”

She shook her head. “He’s hot. Knew a girl who’s had him and I’ll repeat, he’s hot. Took her out four times. All to fancy restaurants where she had to buy fancy dresses and shoes. And he gave it to her good at the end of the night, and I mean real good, the way she described it. He also, like, opened the car door for her and everything.”

Opened the car door for her.

And everything.

Oh my.

“Ended it with her giving her a gold bracelet,” Ashlynn carried on, recapturing my attention. “Pure class.” Her look got intense as she stared into my eyes. “And he’s trouble.”

I glanced to the door that he’d obviously gone through because he’d disappeared, then back to Ashlynn.

“Trouble?”

Ashlynn didn’t answer that question.

She just shook her head again and declared, “He wouldn’t date a stripper anyway. Like I said. He’s class.”

I felt my mouth get tight.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
