Rock Chick Rescue (Rock Chick #2) by Kristen Ashley
“Babe, watching you these past months has been like watching a flower bloom. Don’t disappoint us.”
That horribly awkward moment where you identified with a character…. just to find out everyone who read the book hates her aka you.
I get ahead of myself. Rock Chick Rescue is the story of Jet and Eddie. We met them previously in the first book Rock Chick, where we learned Eddie was holding a torch for Indy and she chose Lee. Jet was more brief, but a quiet addition to the characters near the end of the book.
Jet works two jobs to help support her mother who had a stroke less than a year ago. From the moment she laid eyes on Eddie she had a huge crush on him, but she just isn’t able to talk to hot guys. When Jet’s dad comes back into town bringing trouble into her life, Jet’s secrets come out and Eddie and her coworkers and friends step up to help her out.
“Chiquita, women spend a lot of time sittin’ around bitchin’ that there are no good men out there.
I hate to tell you this, but there aren’t a lot of good women either.
The difference is, when a man sees one, he knows it.
Then, he goes after her and wears her down until she’s his.
Then, if he’s any man at all, he won’t let her go.”
So like I said before, I actually really liked Jet. Maybe because I am often very insecure myself, I love when heroines aren’t these strong and powerful women because I find “annoying” heroines refreshing and realistic. But that’s just me. Hell I even liked Kiera from Thoughtless so judge me if you will.
Anyways, I normally don’t enjoy Cinderella stories, but I really enjoyed this one. Mostly because Jet didn’t lie down and expect Eddie to do everything for her, she really was self sufficient and worked hard for everything that came her way. Eddie was amazing, he’s one of the better KA alpha heroes because he helped out Jet but he also gave her room to help herself.
One criticism….. this book constantly referred to Jet’s lady parts as her “doo-da” and I had to put the book down when reading it because I can’t even with that name. It was so awful.
This book just like the first also had me literally chuckling and laughing out loud while reading it. I think it’s probably the funniest of Ashley’s series and I cannot wait to read more as my book friends have said they get better and better as it goes on.
“Everyone’s got their hands out waitin’ for you to take one. You gotta learn when to take someone’s hand before you fall.”
