NOTE: I read about 70% of this book before the RAGE took over and I had to quit. Then (crack being what it is) I skimmed the rest of the book. I would still consider this a DNF. I can’t say I haven’t been entertained by reading Kristin Ashley books…. Read more »
Author: Kristen Ashley
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She 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 accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of 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 up, it keeps getting better.
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… Read more »
What can I say? These books are like crack. I don’t know, I kinda hated this heroine. She did stupid shit quite often, she was always putting herself down and she wasn’t that much fun. And I hated her break up reason, too. Gah. Normal shenanigans ensue. Of course there… Read more »
Goodreads Prompt: What did I think? I thought that Lee was much less of a knuckle dragging cave man than Tack from Motorcycle Man. That made him a lot easier to deal with. But at the same time, the fact that Lee decides that Indy is going to “belong” to… Read more »
So, I just read this. And I understand now what they mean when they call this “cracktastic.” I wanted to put it down and I damn sure can’t cosign on this relationship. But I had to know what fucked up thing Tack was going to do/say next. Plus…there are kidnappings…. Read more »
Goodreads prompt: What did you think? I feel shame. —– I really didn’t care for Mara too much. She had major ass confidence issues – too many to count. Mitch was cool. What killed me (the most) was the plot moppets. God bless! The damn reason that Mitch and Mara… Read more »
When writing a review at Goodreads, there is a prompt that says, “What did you think?” What did I think? Welp, it [reading Kristen Ashley] is like taking a drug. A very bad for you drug. And you’re mad at yourself the entire time for being weak. Yep. It’s just… Read more »
Let’s just start this off with a hearty “WTF!?” So, the book starts with our “heroine” Gwen. She’s currently in an eighteen (18) month sexual relationship with a man who’s name she doesn’t know. He comes into her home in the middle of any random night, bangs her out and… Read more »
