Series: Rock Chick #2
First thing that comes to my mind about this is: Eddie deserves better!
If you read this one after Indy & Lee’s story, like you’re supposed to, I bet you’ll be a little disappointed. Like I am right now.
It’s not that it’s not good, but it’s not as great as the first one either.
Eddie Chavez & Jet McAlister.
We already know him from Rock Chick, as being best friends with Lee and Hank, growing up with them and having feelings for Indy. He’s also a cop as Hank. You don’t need me to tell you that he’s an amazing guy and you’ll definitely love him.
The problem is with Jet. She was recently employed at Fortnum (Indy’s bookstore), but she’s also working as a waitress at a Strip Club, to be able to take care of her ailing mother. So far so good.
Now, you’ll notice right from the beginning that her self confidence is below zero. You’ll hear her saying how boring and plain she and her life are. How she was in love with Eddie from the moment she laid her eyes on him, but avoiding him because she was shy and a basic idiot around hot guys.
The idiot theory is confirmed once she says something to him that came out as her having a problem with him being Mexican.
The book is called Rock Chick Rescue, because she finds herself in a situation sort of similar with Indy’s. Meaning Jet’s father was a gambler, who owed a lot of money to a lot of bad guys, who of course were coming after Jet. With Eddie and the whole crew of Badass guys (Nightingale Investigations and Denver PD) deciding to protect & rescue Jet, you can imagine similar scenarios with what happened in Rock Chick. Not that OTT, but cool and exciting anyways.
Coming back to Jet. I feel like she ruined my perfect book. She’s a stupid, depressed 28-year-old, who thinks that because her asshole of a father left her mother a long time ago, every man will do that and it’s better to live alone than risk your heart from breaking.
She’s stupid because she doesn’t want to see what’s happening right under her nose.
She doesn’t trust Eddie when he says he likes her a lot, she doesn’t trust anybody who tries to tell her that she’s beautiful and of course men like her.
She says “eek”. A lot. In all the wrong times and places, like this:
Eddie’s arms, which were wrapped around me, tightened. One of his thighs, incidentally, was wedged between my legs, and my thigh was hooked over his hip. Not to mention one of my hands was pressed against his chest, the other arm wrapped around his waist, um… eek!”
Seriously? You have a hot guy in your arms, in your bed, protecting you, showing that he cares about it, pulling all sorts of favors from all Denver for you and you say “eek”.
Another thing. You can either be a badass rock chick like Indy or Ally, or you can be your plain, boring self. Don’t play both sides, because they don’t mix. If you can’t even open your mouth to talk to a guy or appreciate everyone helping you, don’t go off attacking really bad guys caring guns or knives at your throat.
The end. That’s when I felt I could kill her, plain and simple. Maybe make her suffer a bit too.
Again, she definitely ruined a perfect story. I’m also mad that she’s Eddie’s woman, when I’m positive he can do a lot better. For Christ sake, she can’t even say the words “woman” or “girlfriend”.
This was the kind of conversation normal, average, everyday g-words had with their b-words, or worse, w-words had with their m-words.”
AND SHE’S 28!!!!!!!!! Doesn’t she sound like she’s actually middle school, in the gym with her first boyfriend?
Oh, oh, I just remembered. The cherry on top. Her doo-da quivers.. No comments necessary.
I rest my case. I tell you this, though. Eddie saves the whole thing. “The Justice League of Hot Guys” + everyone else from Rock Chick 1 + Daisy saved this book from a 2★ rating.
Next story is about Hank. I’m dying to read it. If his woman is as bad as jet, I’m ending my “Kristen Ashley’s month” sooner and won’t continue with other Rock Chicks wannabes.
In the end, please remember that it’s not a bad book. Eddie Chavez deserves you to go ahead and buy his story from Amazon. Trust me on that!Rock Chick Rescue by Kristen Ashley
