Overview

Ava Barlow hates men. She has reason and she's vowed not only never to get involved with another one again, but also to exact vengeance on her best friend's lying, cheating, rat-bastard husband. Since Luke Stark, Ava's childhood crush, is now a badass mother, she thinks to enlist him, but changes her mind at the last second. Too late. Luke knows she's up to something and he's already seen many a Rock Chick try to fight her own battles without the Hot Bunch stepping in. He's having none of it. She's having none of him. The clash of the Rock Chick and Hot Guy begins, but Luke's got the advantage. He has handcuffs and he's not afraid to use them.

Kristen Ashley grew up in Indiana, but has lived in 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.

This book was good, all of the Rock Chick books are good, but I have to admit the similarities between all the male characters is starting to get on my nerves. They are all pretty interchangeable except for looks. The reaction each of the males have is so identical it's like they are cut from the same mold. Don't get me wrong, the books are all very entertaining; however, I am starting to get the guys confused because they do not have personalities that make them stand out from one another. And I can't help but find it very ridiculous that these women are such good friends knowing that thier man was trying to get it on with one of them (or two of them, in Luke and Ava's case). I can't figure out how I feel about this; I know if my husband had been making out with another woman I considered a friend a few weeks before we started dating there would at least be some awkwardness. It's just kind of icky that these women share details about their sex life with each other in that kind of situation. If I ignore that aspect of the books, though, I find them a very enjoyable read. I prefer KA's other series more -Colorado and the Burg are a little more my style - but the Rock Chick series is still very enjoyable. I am looking forward to Ally's story.

I hate to give this book such a bad review, but honestly there are few redeeming qualities. There was such a lead up to Luke's story - he is definitely one of the hottest men in the series and I expected his lady love to be spunkier than most. Unfortunately Ava skips right past spunky and straight into selfish, immature, and (frequently) completely b****y. I know she has had a rocky past with some emotional punches but that does not excuse her behavior. She pulls so many stupid, catty stunts (things that a lead male would be crucified for if the situation were reversed) and then never takes responsibility or apologizes sincerely. Instead, she makes up ridiculous defenses and excuses. Honestly, after the parking lot scene, I actually lost respect for Luke because he didn't ream her ass out and leave her until she tried to work for the relationship for once. But, the epilogue is one of the sweetest I've read, a fabulous, totally yummy new male lead is introduced and the next love story has a fabulous kickoff. And ironically, Luke and Ava actually become one of my favorite couples in later books. My advice? Skim this one for the highlights and skip right on to Mace/Stella and Hector/Sadie. I'm really looking forward to Ally and Ren's story, but i hope she tones Ally's drama way the hell down from Ava's.

Luke Stark is by far my favorite of the Rock Chick guys. This story was awesome. Ava had a crap life that a lot of women can relate too. Because of this her and Luke's story has a lot of bumps. They have a long history that plays into how they both respond to one another. Again everyone is back and a few more new players come into the picture. This is another must read by Kristen Ashley.

I love the supporting characters more then the heroine in each book. I Hate the heroine spends 85% of the book denying a relationship. That gets old fast. I did not really like Luke too much. It was like he couldn't have Roxie so he tried for Jules and settled for Ava. I also felt Luke shpuld have just moved on. The playing hard to get got old fast.

I decided to reread this series and I still dont like this one as much as the others. Im glad Ava wasnt perfect with her weight problem but I hate the fact that in every book the women had to be a certain type (skinny, big boobs and ass) for the men to love them. It was stated plainly that Ava lost weight just to make Luke look at her. I know they were emotionally scarred but still it would be nice if they weren't physically perfect.

Love Luke! First review: My favorite Rock Chic book so far in the series. The hero is amazing.  I am now in the middle of my reread of the series and my head is spinning with all the Rock Chic Hero Hotness. It is a blast to read the  books all at once close together and know the end of the series as well.  I still love Luke and Ava too. I love how this books plays with all the stuff that has come before in the series and how Luke tries to learn  from the other courtships.  I love how some of the fun of interrupted sexy times and more and more kooky friends and shopping piles on.  Luke's courtship is badass and great. Ava is so funny. I have always had just one regret about this book. Well, two. I wish Luke wasn't a man whore. But more importantly, Ava is formally fat.  Or maybe she was just on the high side of very curvy. We don't really know because her self esteem is whacked.  Anyway, I have always wished that Luke had made it clear that when they had seen each other five years ago if she had called him  back (this is discussed in the first chapter of the book so I don't think its a spoiler) it is likely they would have gotten together no matter  her larger size.   Instead, some where along the line, he says he knew he had always wanted her in his life but hadn't know he would want her in his bed.  I also think at some point even though she lost the weight in part for him (in her mind) I think it would burn a little bit that he wants her like this now that the weight is gone.  I am not saying this is true of Luke. I am just saying this would be one of Ava's crazy notions. I think Ava's increased self confidence likely made her more hot or at least her increased being herself.  Anyway, loved this book but wish this had gotten explored in the way it deserves. Mace and Stella are up next. I didn't love this book. So, we shall see what happens in this second read.

Loved this! There was so much going on in this and a fantastic story was created. Lots of different layers happening and things developing. I thought it had a great pace and everything unfolded nicely. Loved all the characters and loved the Rock Chick adventures. This was entertaining and fun as well as action packed and intense. Luke and Ava are so great. Loved the past connection they shared and learning details about both of them. Luke has been a favorite of mine so I pretty much inhaled every detail of him. Luke is so alpha male sexy but he’s also incredibly sweet so it was just awesome. I thought he was great before but by the time I was done with this, I was totally in love with him. I loved Ava's character and really got her. She frustrated me with her insecurities but I love the growth she experiences and this strong women she becomes. Luke and Ava are super hot together, loved the passionate build between the two! Lots of players are involved, old and new. Sometimes it seems like a bit much but since I have read all the books in order and know all the characters, somehow it all make sense and works. It's like a great big family party you wouldn't want anyone to miss. I love how Stella was introduced for the next book, Rock Chick Reckoning. I can't wait for Mace's story. There was drama. Intensity, adventure and a whole lot of sexiness. I was wrapped up, stressed out, and hanging on every word. Another fantastic Rock Chick read!

Another enjoyable Rock Chick book. Although her earlier books were my favorites still, this one was also very good, it had action, lots of humor, great friendships and interesting plot. I could have smacked Ava upside the head a few times though, lol. Now on to Mace & Stella's story --YeeHaw...

I love Kristen Ashley's books. This is my third series and I am so totally hooked. She brings you into the real world with her characters. The community is of real folks; Blacks, Whites, Hispanic, Native Americans, young, old, straight, gay, good, bad, sane, and a bit insane. I am forever a Kristen Ashley fan
