About the Author
Kristen Ashley grew up in Indiana, but has lived in 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.

On a side note, I know this isn’t rock music but I had my iPod playing on shuffle for a lot of this book, and Sia’s voice kept reaching out to me as Stella’s. Reaper, Alive, Bird Set Free and Elastic Heart (plus more of her music) all spoke to me and it really enhanced my love for Stella.
What you need to know
This is book 6 of a series. Even though you could read it as a standalone that is just silly start with Rock Chick and if that is your cup of tea then you will love the rest of the ride.
I loved Mace and Stella’s story. They dated for about five months and then broke up. It becomes clear pretty early that had they actually got to know each other while dating/sleeping together they could have saved themselves some time but what fun would that be.
The other thing that is great about this specific book and why I probably got so drawn into it was the fact that it included everyone from the prior books in a bigger way as it seems someone has declared war on the Nightingale men and all their women are in trouble. Mix in some Tex, Daisy and Shirleen and you have what amounts to a bang up story.
I’ve been waiting to read about Mace’s history since we learned how he lost his sister back in book 2 and it did not disappoint. It was heart-wrenching and I cheered with Stella every time she dispensed one of his demons back to the grave.
Don’t read the Epilogue
I’m not sure why but this book has an epilogue set about 5 years in the future. That would be fine but there are 2 more books and couples in this series. If you read the epilogue then you know who they will end up with. It isn’t a huge spoiler but I wish I would have known that before I read the epilogue.
It was cute to learn about the new families and such but still I wish I would have waited so it didn’t seem like the series was already over.
Mace - former pro surfer, former pro snowboarder, now Hot Guy PI. He has some demons behind those eyes.
Stella - lead singer, "mom" of her rock band, now Rock Chick. She has her own past to deal with but when she and Mace are together, they are amazing.
Sigh, there are so many good, great, awesome, fantastic things in this book. Like previous Rock Chicks, there's some action. I mean real guns and crazy stuff action, AND some hot couple action. There's some romance. The Hot Guys, while ALL Alpha male (My absolute favorite), can do some romance. There's humor. Tex, Indy, Ally, the whole gang brings it and there were times that I had to stop reading because of the hilarious dialog.
Here's something I absolutely hands-down LOVE about reading KA and this series. While the majority of the book is written in first-person female lead POV, we do get a few chapters/passages here and there from the male lead POV. The amazing thing is that the male POV changes and is written in third-person. And it is done FLAWLESSLY. It is, in a word, perfect.
I loved all the previous Rock Chick books, but Mace and Stella...I'm sad to see them go and will definitely re read this again!
