It was bound to happen….eventually *takes a deep breath* I didn’t like Eddie and Jet. *Whew* there I said it and I’m still standing. Okay so they are my least favorite couple out of all the KA-land couples. It’s really okay because they have some very stiff competition but something was missing in this story for me. Some of the stuff that never bugs me in a KA story totally bothered me here. Good thing that there are still so many great side characters and fun things happening that even though I didn’t absolutely love the main couple I still had a pretty decent time.
♥ - Seeing Indy and Lee and all the gang from the previous book. I love them all and they were so much fun in this one too. I can’t even decide who I liked the most. Indy….Lee….Mace *cries for Mace*…Daisy or Tex. It is probably Tex.
***“I’m comin’ too,” he announced.
I closed my eyes. This was spiraling out-of-control. I opened them again. “Please listen to me—”
“No way, Loopy Loo. You aren’t hoardin’ all the action.” He turned to Indy, “You’re drivin’ because we can all fit in your silly-ass car. When we see a break in the coffee action, I’ll go home and get my shotgun.”
My mouth dropped open and I was pretty sure my eyes bugged out of my head.
“Don’t worry, Jet. Just as long as we don’t get into any situations that require grenades, we’ll be fine.” Indy said this like she wasn’t joking.
Tex looked at Indy for a beat. “I’ll pack a few, just in case,” he said***
Seriously I love that dude and he could be my unofficial body guard any day. Also seeing him flustered by someone he was interested in was fantastic and adorable.
But Daisy comes in a close second. She looks a little bit like a younger Dolly Parton and she is just a hoot and a holler ya’ll. She is also married to a very dangerous man but she is so easy to love right from the beginning. I loved all her costumes and sparkles.
***“What’s happening?” I asked.
“Daisy’s going to take me to Smithie’s, show me some moves, make sure I get my Porsche,” Lottie explained. “Mom’s gonna come with us.”
I thought about Mom hanging out at Smithie’s watching her daughter practice strip routines.
♡ - The crazy mothers. Both Jet and Eddie have mothers who are all kinds of meddling. It’s cute how badly each of them wants their child to find a relationship, happiness and get to the place of giving them some grandbabies. What is even funnier is how they don’t even try to hide it.
♥ - Crazy kidnappings….I know they can be sorta cheesy but I really love knowing that the heroine at some time or another in this series is going to be kidnapped and not always by someone really bad. Sometimes it is by someone who isn’t exactly on team Nightingale but is not exactly against team Nightingale either. Frenemies Lee and Eddie have them.
♡ - Just the fun banter and familiarity with the entire group. Daisy was so much but so are Tod, Ally, Indy and even Hank in his uber gruff manner. They all add that small hometownfeel to the story and I totally love how KA does this probably better than most.
***“I do not worship at the altar of Sarah Jessica Parker and all things Sex and the City to go out with a hot-lookin’ girlie in black flats. You wear black flats when you’re eight and ninety-eight, not anytime in between.”
“Huh!” he snapped, giving me The Hand. I knew better than to argue with The Hand. So, if something went down and I couldn’t run, at least I’d die dressed to the nines from top-to-toe.***
Look some of the story didn’t make a ton of sense. Jet is taking care of her mother who had a stroke and is running herself ragged doing everything by herself. But it comes out later that there were people who could have helped her and she just didn’t let anyone know….including her sister. It is the sister part I didn’t get, it seemed so natural that her sister would help in some way. But *shrugs* that would have detracted from Jet being a martyr and worth getting her own Alpha man.
Okay in the beginning I was really pulling for Jet. She is doing so much for her mom and has stretched herself so thin and she has this totally low self-esteem. I connected with her really well in the beginning but Jet never got out of the mindset that she deserved to have anyone in her life and she was always just seconds away from dropping Eddie and never seeing him again. Even at the end there didn’t seem to be any solidification of the couple they became. It was weird and while bravo to KA for doing something different in her story and not having the couple really tight but at the same time I missed that sort of ending.
I didn’t love the lingo in this one there weren’t any super adorable nicknames and for some reason the Spanish just didn’t work for me. Plus Jet called her lady parts a doo dah and every time she did that the sexiness of the moment just left me.
Eddie was pretty okay for me as an alpha male went. He did pretty well with Jet considering she was always trying to kick him out of her life and do everything by herself. Like I said the Spanish endearments didn’t really work for me but almost everything else about Eddie did until something near the very end, but it wasn’t a deal breaker or anything like that, just some alpha macho madness.
***I already told you that you were my business, but it’s pretty clear you didn’t understand. I’ve been tryin’ to get your attention for months, but you’re so busy and exhausted and whatever the hell else you are it hasn’t worked. So I’ll say, straight out, so there’s no confusion. I want to spend time with you, I want to get to know you, and I want to sleep with you and it doesn’t have to be in that order.”
I liked that Eddie understood Jet, he knew when she was getting scared and ready to bail and that worked for me. But the ending to this book didn’t really feel like an ending at all. It was totally abrupt and I feel like I didn’t get closure on their love story.
But Never Fear - there were enough little snippets of the other Rock Chick men with hints of their stories to come that I’m just gonna keep on keeping on until I get through the entire series. After this book I am the most interested in Mace’s upcoming book. I can already tell that one will be an emotional rollercoaster and I can’t wait to go for my ride.
Jet is one of those women who ‘has no idea’ how beautiful she is, and while I can believe that this can happen, with Jet, this is taken to the extreme, she can’t fathom why Eddie would ever be interested in her. Eddie is a very hot cop, and part of Nightingale’s friends. While he seemed like a great guy for a while, I found him to be so pushy in cases I would probably have called the cops on him! When Jet said ‘no’ he said, oh, yes, and you’ll like it, too. This made me feel uncomfortable more than once!
There is a lot going on in Rock Chick, one being that Jet’s dad has huge money-problems, and this puts Jet in the spotlight for some bad-guys. Between her job as a cocktail waitress at a strip-club and her other job in Indy and Ally’s bookstore / coffee shop, she also doesn’t really have time for any kind of trouble. Eddie is always ready to interfere to keep Jet safe, and that is one aspect of him I really enjoyed. However, when he was supposed to drive her home, and instead drove her to his place, and wouldn’t let her leave, I was very angry with him! Who does that? Even if he’s in love with her, and thinks she is in love with him as well, she needed to have some power over her own mind and body.
With that being said, Rock Chick also involves the other Rock Chicks, some crazy action, dressing up almost as sweet as Tod in his drag get-up, and it also showed me that Jet actually knows how to fight. The strong friendship between Jet and the other women made me very happy, even if I wished she would have been able to realize much sooner that she was actually a catch! And not only because of her looks, but because of her being funny, hard-working, loyal, friendly and resilient. Taking care of her mother and her medical bills after Nancy’s stroke made me like Jet a lot, because family is important, and it certainly was in this story.
So far, I think I enjoy Ashley’s Chaos series more than the Rock Chick series, but I’m still having fun with Rock Chick. Written from Jet’s perspective in past tense, the story was fast paced and included very nosy mothers, and friends who did what they could to push Eddie and Jet together.
