Darius Tucker.

When Malia returns, she seeks Darius to share all, but Darius finds out before she can tell him. At the same time, she finds out just how much Darius has changed in the years she’s been away.

She just refuses to give up on him.

Until he forces her hand.

Secrets come between Malia and Darius, at the same time Malia has to worry about weird things going on at the law firm where she works, her kid wants a car and she’s stuck in slow-cooker hell. Luckily, her ride or dies have her back.

5 out of 5 stars

Rock Chick Rematch was such an incredible story. The love, heartache, longing, and hope filled me up and I loved every second. I was thrilled Darius was getting a story and after reading it, my heart felt full. Malia and Darius had such a soul-deep connection mixed with a painful history and I loved the build as they finally made their way to a well-deserved happily ever after.

I loved how this was set up, going between past and present, I was excited and full of anticipation waiting for time to catch up and to get to the present day. The build was fantastic! I really liked getting the ins and outs of Darius and Malia’s relationship, learning their history and all they went through. They had this push and pull between them filled with love and passion, and I couldn’t get enough. I felt for Malia and loved how strong she was and how determined she was to do everything she could for their son. My heart broke for Darius and his sacrifices to do what he thought was right for them and his family. This had so many poignant moments and important details and I ate it up. Darius and Malia's love story stood the test of time but it was filled with drama and pain, but the hope, love, and redemption made it that much sweeter when they finally got to their HEA.

I really liked being able to see some of my favorite characters, especially Tex. I loved meeting new people like Malia's friends and sister and found all their crazy antics super entertaining. I loved the bond that Darius has with Lee and Eddie as well. There were a lot of witty scenes that brought all the fun thanks to the Rock Chick Hot Bunch gang. I also loved Darius and Malia’s son, Liam, there were a lot of great moments with him.

I didn’t know how much I needed this book. It was excellent! I loved how the entertaining moments mixed with the heavy, balancing everything out. If you are a Rock Chick fan, you’ll definitely want to read this one!
