Rock Chick Renegade 4
Rock Chick Renegade (Rock Chick #4) by Kristen Ashley


Jules has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance has made it his mission that Jules won’t get dead while dishing out vigilante justice. Jules doesn’t have time for romance, she’s too busy saving the world and she enlists Zip (the gunstore owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help.

The Rock Chicks of Fortnum’s Bookstore get involved to provide romantic advice and guidance, none of which Jules accepts at first. The Hot Bunch of Nightingale Investigations adopt Jules as one of their own. Even though Jules tries to hang on to her inner Head Crackin’ Mamma Jamma, the Rock Chicks; Hot Bunch; Jules’s long-suffering Uncle Nick; Jules’s friend the rotund, African-American, Jackie-O wannabe, May; and especially Vance will stop at nothing to wear her down.

But Jules makes some bad guys pretty angry and one is dedicated to taking her out. Vance and the Hot Bunch have to pull out all the stops to keep her alive. At the same time, Jules and Vance learn the true meaning of home but once they find this precious entity they’ve been searching for all their lives, will Jules’s enemies tear it away?

5 out of 5 stars

Great story! It had everything I've come to love from Kristen Ashley.

Jules is fantastic! I mean, seriously, stand up for yourself, take on the world, kick ass and I loved that about her. Her and Vance together were great, he had that awesome alpha male thing going on but gave her a bit more room to be herself it seemed, I liked it a lot. I liked how they met, the growth of their relationship was good even though it was pretty instant. I loved the bickering and sexy times (HOT!). I enjoyed getting to know Vance a but I wish there would have been more details about him.

Besides the main characters evolving relationship, I also liked the story of Jules and how she was fighting in her vigilante justice type ways. Some parts of the story were pretty funny but it could also be serious and intense, there was a nice balance. Jules at the shelter with the kids was wonderful and heartwarming.

All the key players from previous stories were in this and I totally enjoyed it. Everything intertwined nicely but this book had a different feel to it for me. It was more about Jules and Vance’s relationship than Rock Chick antics. I was kind of missing some of the fun and laughter, it was there, just not as much. I like that Duke had more of a voice in this and new characters were introduced. Every one of them is so well thought out and detailed. Luke was so sweet in this (he always is!) and I love how protective all the guys get about the women.

Excellent drama at the end. Loved how it all wrapped up and I'm super excited for Luke's story next, which was introduced right at the end. He needs a good woman!

Great story. Twists and turns with lots of butt-kicking mixed in between the romance. Heartfelt and wonderful!


Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She 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!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of 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 up, it keeps getting better.
