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’d have to say that this has been my favorite KA book so far. And I think it’s because Roxie is the least TSTL KA heroine I’ve read so far. She had a moderate amount of self-loathing. Clothes horse like the rest of them though. In the rest she’s a typical KA heroine. And Hank wasn’t crazy alpha male overload (but still alpha male overload). I mean, he moved too fast and was controlling and overbearing but it was moderate in KA Land.
I don’t know what this says about me. I think I need an intervention, lol.
As always, too long.
Rating Caveat: The rating is based on a how I feel about this book in comparison to all of the other KA books I have read. Also, I have never rated any of the KA books I’ve read on grammar, sentence structure, editing or formatting. I knew what I was getting myself into before I started reading.
