A Message from Kristen:
I’m beside myself with glee that this prequel to my Rock Chick series has been unleashed! There was some time when I never thought I’d write it. When I couldn’t be in that terrible place with Daisy. But I’m oh-so glad that she called to me, demanding her story be told so she could give it to me and now I can give it to you! I loved every moment spent with Daisy and Marcus. And I hope you do too!
“You, thinkin’ I’d have a problem with you bein’ Marcus Sloan,” I expanded.
“Do you know who I am?”
“Nope.” I shrugged. “Don’t care either. Though, that’s to say ‘nope’ don’t mean that I don’t know. I just don’t really know. I still don’t care. And that’s not why I don’t wanna have dinner with you.”
“I’m still not understanding.”
“Honey bunch, I’m a stripper.”
I shut up.
Dear God, he thought I thought I was better than him.
He thought I thought I had reason to think I was better than him.
“I don’t judge,” I said quietly. “Life’s life and a person’s gotta do what they feel they gotta do to get along in it.”
“This is correct.”
“So I don’t care what you do or who you are.”
“And this delights me.”
My heart started racing because it did. It delighted him.
And I knew this because his eyes were again twinkling.
“Men are a**holes,” I shared.
“Some of them are, yes,” he somewhat agreed.
“Not met many who aren’t. My count, all my life, that number equals two.”
Those twinkling eyes stopped twinkling in order to flash.
“Yup. Two,” I confirmed.
“Although I find that knowledge upsetting, I’ll share I’d like to make that three,” he told me something I already (mostly) got.
Daisy is the beautiful, bell-laughing Southern bell! I have loved her in every single RC book and while Marcus was the strong silent entity behind the lady…he truly came into his own in this story. Marcus and Luke Stark (my favourite Hot Bunch man) are so alike…they know what they want, they wait for their in and then they go ALL in. BTW…Luke Stark cameo in this book Rocked!!!
Daisy grew up hard with very little sun and yet she became her own little piece of Sunshine. She glowed and radiated and for many people…when they see such a beautiful lovely light their only response is to snuff it out. Many have tried and failed…but Marcus, the first time he sees Daisy and her light, he claims it for himself. Sadly, their road is not smooth. Oh, how Daisy and I wished that it was…but to quote another great KA hero…sometimes the most beautiful stories are the hardest to tell.
Marcus is not complicated. Like Ren, he is a ruthless man who has lived his life on the dark side and while he is not afraid to get dirty, he is moving to get and stay clean. I loved the insights into Marcus’ life, his childhood and especially his relationships with Lee and the gang. I especially loved when Marcus asked Lee if he worked on retainer…Lee’s response…a head move. I could actually see his head jerk.
While I don’t want to spoil a moment for you the reader…this “novella” was a KA novella to be sure. It would be about the size of a mass market book by any other author, but since about half the length of one of her regular tombs, you get sooo much goodness in this one!!! Go buy cashews, put on some sexy shoes and hunker down for some badass beauty!!! Enjoy!
About ROCK CHICK REAWAKENING:
From New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Ashley, comes the long-awaited story of Daisy and Marcus, Rock Chick Reawakening. A prequel to Kristen’s Rock Chick series, Rock Chick Reawakening shares the tale of the devastating event that nearly broke Daisy, an event that set Marcus Sloan—one of Denver’s most respected businessmen and one of the Denver underground’s most feared crime bosses—into finally making his move to win the heart of the woman who stole his.
Praise for Kristen Ashley and ROCK CHICK REAWAKENING:
“OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FREAKING LOVED IT!!!!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! This was pure Old School Vintage KA GOLD!!!”
“This novella is like the key to all the locked doors in this series.”
“We inhaled Marcus and Daisy’s story, how could we not. It was everything to us and we cannot thank Kristen Ashley enough for writing it, in her much loved unique manner. The queen of epilogues struck once more and we smiled through copious tears of happiness, our hearts feeling full and complete. Whilst sad that it’s over we just can’t feel anything but happiness and love right now. It was Aces! Rock on…and be prepared to be swept of off your feet.”
“[Kristen] Ashley captivates.”
“There is something about them [Ashley’s books] that I find crackalicious.”
“I felt all of the rushes, the adrenaline surges, the anger spikes… my heart pumping in fury. My eyes tearing up when my heart (I mean… her heart) would break.”
About Kristen Ashley:
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and 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 accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with 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, it keeps getting better.
