Rock Chick Reckoning by Kristen Ashey
Stella’s the lead singer and lead guitarist of the Blue Moon Gypsies and Stella used to be Mace’s girl. Mace broke up with her though and the loss of him rocked her world. But Stella gets a call, late at night (again) from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up (again) and runs into Mace (and a shed load of police) and ends up getting shot.
Mace finds he doesn’t like it much that his ex-girlfriend got shot, right in front of him but it’s worse. A very bad man has thrown down the gauntlet and ALL the Rock Chicks are in the firing line. Stella doesn’t want Mace to be the one to keep her alive but she has no choice… mainly because Mace isn’t giving her one.

This book takes me back to all the things I loved about the earlier books in series and bonus there was next to no back and forth from the female character trying to deny strong feelings for the male character. The plot was really good and kept the story pacing right along. At the end there was an epilogue that kind of gave a 'where are they now' for the characters 5 years after the story ended. The author must have intended to end the series here but later wrote two more books for a few fringe characters. I think I will leave the series here because I am very satisfied with how everything was ended...and because I've already read the books for my favorite characters, and this book contains one of them.
