Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Ally Nightingale has secrets. Secrets she doesn’t even share with the Rock Chicks. But two men know what she’s up to. One has her back. The other has her heart, but he doesn’t know it.
As Ally rewinds the last year of her life, she knows two things. One, she’s never going to get what every Rock Chick should have—her own Hot Bunch guy. And two, she’s a Nightingale through and through. She just isn’t sure what to do about that.
But as her secrets are revealed, the men in her life react. Darius Tucker, a lifelong friend, as usual takes her back. Ren Zano, the man she loves, isn’t quite so sure. The Rock Chicks, Hot Bunch and the entire gang at Fortnum’s weigh in, and a Rock Chick Revolution starts brewing.
It’s up to Ally to control it and prove what she knows down to her bones.
She’s a Rock Chick, she deserves her hot guy and she’s going to keep the one she wants…
Because she’s a Nightingale.
So, after literally devouring the first seven books in the series, I put off reading the 8th and final book, because I knew it was the end. But, I guess all great series must come to an end; even though I have to say that I am very sad to say goodbye to the rock chicks, the hot bunch, and all the additional characters that make the Rock Chick series so special!
“In one night, he made me believe in the modern-day fairytale I watched all my girls get, and he made me believe life had that in store for me. And he made me want it.”
Rock Chick Revolution is different than the other books in the series, as in there isn’t as much action and mystery and this story really focuses on Ally and Ren’s story; which is told at first in a rewind and fast forward style until we catch up with present time within the series. I found the beginning part of this book a little slow and it just didn’t have the same excitement or leave me with the desire to ignore everything around me like the other books in the series did. But, I am glad I stuck with it, because it picked up and of course I fell in love with Ally and Ren.
Ally is a very strong and independent woman. Ren was of course the sexy, alpha, hot-blooded Italian I had hoped he would be. I really enjoyed seeing their story and love come together.
“You’re the best I’ve ever had, Ally. Bar none. And the way you love, stubborn, tough, unshakeable, is unbelievably f*ckin’ beautiful.”
This series was my first experience with the magic that is Kristen Ashley’s writing, but it definitely won’t be my last! I loved every one of the characters, the underlying theme of strong friendships, loyalty, passion, and love! I wish I could be part of this amazing group of Rock Chicks; ohhh maybe I can be an honorary member– or at least in my head I will be!
I can’t wait to dive into her other series, where I hear that the Alpha-males are aplenty; oh yes please and thank you!!
