Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley
“Your grandmother used to say that you were two souls separated in heaven. She mainly meant you were both trouble and deserved each other.”
Rock Chick is the story of Indy and Lee. The two grew up together, always getting into shenanigans amongst Lee’s siblings. But after being turned down one too many times by Lee, Indy has spent the last few years avoiding him.
Indy owns a bookstore/coffee shop and her best barista has brought chaos down on Indy’s life involving diamonds, bad guys and pot. Indy ends up needing Lee to help her, and Lee decides it’s finally time she stopped avoiding him.
“So, now you’re getting shot at, you’re gonna leave me?”
“Girlie, I’m from Texas. We shoot at each other to say good morning.”
I have to say I went into this with low expectations and enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. There are so many mixed reviews out there on this book, and these characters make appearances in other Ashley books so I knew it was worth a read. Many parts I was literally laughing out loud. But I can totally see how this book isn’t for everyone.
I loved Indy as a character, such a free spirit and a cool gal. Lee was a little bit too…….. alpha for me? To the point of his aggressiveness rubbed me the wrong way. But like I said, there were so many moments when I laughed while reading this book, I really enjoyed it overall and I am glad to see where Kristen Ashley got her start.
“You want to marry me?”
“No. I’m gonna marry you.”
