After a sweet start to this novella, I realized that it was like chugging fructose and began to wonder if this wasn't her revenge for those of us who didn't like the My Little Brony book. Here, you don't want to go to the dark side, try this!
Shirleen has always been a complex character -- sexual abuse victim, drug dealer, foster mother, and herder of bad a$$es. That makes a story about her full of potential. Instead we got sweet, super mom Shirleen who seemed more reticent than militant. Moses is the perfectly sweet, romantic,decorated war veteran alpha male who loves to talk about his feelings; also known as a unicorn. Dad of two teenaged daughters with law enforcement training, he has no issues with Shirleen's past and no concerns about exposing his daughters to two former drug dealing homeless teens and their foster mother. The two foster sons, other than causing a prophylactic shortage in Colorado, are top students and totally well adjusted. Evidence shows that Moses' daughters are equally perfect.
The problem with this novella is that it is missing a plot. There is no character development, no conflict, and the fastest HEA of any Ashley book. Shirleen experiences a minor glitch that is cured with a couple of dates with Mr. Wondeful. The only surprise is that the novella ends around the 80% mark with the old "That's it?" Kindle neck snap.
There is a tongue in cheek reference to off-screen action in the epilogue but it was like a joke that fell flat. The 'Kristen Ashley' fake persona idea was present again.
I can't even recommend that you try the sample before buying, because the intro is the best part of the book. Just keep your expectations in check for this quick, light read. I'm happy for Shirleen, but not so much for me. This is not a story I would reread, unlike most of Ms. Ashley's other books.
Readers of this series have always loved Shirleen Jackson as they watched her go from drug dealing, illegal gambling wrong side of the law badass to upstanding citizen with a legitimate job raising two street kids as her own. Shirleen has always been there for her friends and her family including the Rock Chicks and their Hot Bunch men, helping them find love and happiness, but never really taking any for her own. In Rock Chic Reborn, she meets a man who is determined to prove she is worthy of love and a life she always wanted but never managed to get.
How do I describe Moses Richardson? Devoted to his daughters and the young boys in his job in a juvenile correction center, Moses is a good man ready to take a chance on love again. Seeing Shirleen in the grocery store with her two teenage foster sons leads him to make a move, but she pretends not to be interested, but when Lee and the rest of the Hot Bunch realize she is, they go out of their way to not only vet Moses, but to make sure that for once Shirleen gets her happiness.
I did love this story in that it was character driven and a bit more sedate than the others, because let’s face it Shirleen deserved a relationship not mired with bullets, explosions, and kidnappings. I loved that not only did Shirleen and Moses spend a lot of time talking and getting to know one another, but that he went out of his way to make her understand that her past was her past and it was the woman she is now that is important. There was something sweet in the way he made her see the good in herself and the way she realized her worth to those in her life. While there was no doubt this was a romance between Moses and Shirleen; Ms. Ashely give the readers a lot of closure in the relationship that Shirleen shares with her foster boys, Roam and Sniff, and I can almost guarantee for most people tears will be shed.
My biggest complaint about this book, I wanted more including seeing Moses and Shirleen interacting with the Rock Chicks and the Hot Bunch and the way Moses’ daughters reacted to Shirleen. I kind of felt like there was something missing in that Moses and Shirleen didn’t spend a lot of “face to face” time together, but I wouldn’t have missed this book for the world.
Rock Chick Reborn is a sweet and satisfying story proving that passion and love can happen at any age even when you least expect it or when you don’t think you deserve it. Thank you Ms. Ashley for giving Shirleen the HEA she so richly deserved!
