This book centers around Ally and Ren and the beginning of the book is told through a series of flashbacks that recap a lot of the previous romances in the series. Ally has a secret romance with Ren and she's also keeping her new business a secret as well. Although there are reasons for the secrecy I found myself wanting Ally to just stand up and say I'm an adult and I can make my own decisions and this is what I choose earlier than she does in this story. Ren takes his place as a wonderful Alpha male in a series full of them but his role was a bit too much in the background for my tastes.
Ally's new case puts her in danger so there is a nice action sequence although I wish it would have been a bit longer. I loved the chemistry between Ally and Ren and enjoyed watching them find their way. Ally who I've always loved did/made some decisions that I didn't really like in this book and at times was a bit of a brat. I'm not sure I found the way she talked realistic and I do admit I got tired of hearing the terms "hot bunch" and "rock chicks" in the book. I also found the way she put herself in the books a bit weird and I didn't really like that. However, the crazy action, humor and Ally and Ren as a couple made this book work. Although not my favorite book in the series I am satisfied and ready for this series to end.
As for the audio, like a few previous RC books, I listened interchangeably with reading and I haven't always been thrilled with Susannah Jones' narration. Namely, her chosen voices and inflections for different characters. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this one and feel like it's the best I've heard from her.
Until now, this was the only Rock Chick book that I had not read more than once. Truth be told, I’m not sure why I haven’t reread Rock Chick Revolution before now because I absolutely adore Ally and love that she and Ren were coupled together, because not only did Ren deserve happiness after Ava’s journey in Rock Chick Revenge, but there was no way that one of the Hot Bunch would ever work for Ally. Nope. Ally needed a man who wasn’t beholden to her brother or scared of him and Ren was just the man for the job. I can’t say that Ashley saved the best for last – especially since Rock Chick Reawakening was released this week – but I can say that she didn’t pull any punches with Ally and her pursuit of happiness… or in the form of it.
As it’s been a couple of years since I read this book, there was a lot of it that I did not remember, so it was almost like I was reading it for the first time. Again, I gotta say that the author made Ally work hard for her happiness. We know that no Rock Chick has an easy time of it when she finds her Hot Guy and Ally is not the first of the ladies to suspect that her man loves another. While that knowledge did not keep her from falling for Ren, it made her keep him at arm’s length as she protected her heart as best she could. Alas, as always happens with every Rock Chick, when the proverbial excrement hit the fan, Ally tried to cut ties with Ren, and while Ren might not be a member of the Hot Bunch, as a hot-blooded Italian American man, he was not down with that plan. Yet even after they worked their way past that obstacle, the author keeps her readers on their toes as a pivotal plot point in the story plays out in such a way that, even as a series fan who knows that the couple always finds their happy ending, I feared it would succeed in driving the final nail in the coffin of their relationship – THAT was how bad the divide between them grew, THAT was how firm Ren was in his refusal to back down, and THAT was how devastated and dejected Ally was by Ren’s response. Even knowing that it would all work out, seeing Ally so subdued broke my heart, but that was only one of many, many times Ashley made me cry.
Each book in the Rock Chick series is packed with action, but Rock Chick Revolution seems even more action-packed than its predecessors. Perhaps it’s because it was meant to be the series finale or perhaps it’s because of the career path Ally has chosen – something we got a glimpse of in the series crossover book, Breathe. Suffice it to say, so much happens that on the reread I kept repeating “Ohmigod!” as a new secret was exposed, a new happiness discovered, a new crime solved, and a new connection made. I am sorry to say that I had forgotten how big of a part Darius had in this book. His character has intrigued me from the beginning and I enjoyed getting a closer look into his life. Truth be told, Ashley did a great job in how she wove Darius into Ally’s story so much because it not only helps lay the foundation for his book in the spin-off series the author has planned for Mace’s agency out in L.A., but it allowed for major character development as Ally grows, develops her skills, and sticks her nose into Darius’s business because she wants him to take his place in the family like he should. There is so much more that goes on in Rock Chick Revolution, stuff that I will not reveal in my review, but nonetheless insured its spot on my reread list and hopefully I’ll get to do so again sooner rather than later.
