Rock Chick Redemption by Kristen Ashely
Roxie’s on the run from a bad boyfriend who will not catch the hint that it is o-v-e-r. She’s in no mood for love at first sight, but when her eyes fall on Hank, it’s trouble from the get-go. Roxie tries to hold Hank at arms length but Hank wants to be a closer (as in, a lot closer). Roxie’s trouble catches up with her and Hank wants to help but Roxie knows in her heart that she’s no good for a white hat guy. The problem is no one agrees with her, especially her crazy hippie best friend Annette or her parents; the even crazier small-Indiana-town Herb and Trish. Toss into the mix the gang from Rock Chick and Rock Chick Rescue and Roxie finds herself totally outnumbered.
Climb in for another Rock Chick wild ride through Rock Chick Redemption. As the odds stack up against Roxie, she has no choice but to hold on and just ride it out through the kidnappings, car chases, society parties, a riot at the strip club, Hank getting “Mom Bombed” and one crazy night at the Haunted House.
During all this Hank works at convincing her she really wants to stay and he, along with the Hot Bunch, go all out to make her safe. Hank also needs to work on showing Roxie that her past decisions don’t mean her future can’t include something as downright delicious as… normal.

I could not be happier I finally found a series that is more than just one or two books in so I can have some lasting fun! This addition was a little more vanilla than the last two but I think that is because the featured couple were a little less wild than others, and the female was in my view, a little more internally wishy-washy-whiny than the previous women, but still well worth my reading time. One thing I really like is that while each book features a new couple getting together we still have a good dose of the all of the other characters. I have only seen that pulled off in one other series so it must be a skill not many authors have.
As I write this review I am already reading the next in the series and it hit the ground running. Bonus for me the featured guy is one I have been looking forward to, can't wait to see who he is smitten with.
