Rock Chick Rescue Review


Jet McAlister has a secret. Eddie Chavez has the hots for Jet (not to mention Eddie’s just plain hot). Jet has too many problems to realize that Eddie’s interested. Eddie loses patience when Jet ends her waitressing shift at a strip club with a knife at her throat. Since Eddie’s a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet’s used to solving everyone’s problems she doesn't want Eddie’s help.

Throw in a Dolly Parton look-alike, a gruff but lovable strip club owner, Jet’s ne'er do well father, his ne'er do well friend, Bear, Bear’s long-suffering, chain-smoking wife Lavonne and the crew from Rock Chick and you've got Rock Chick Rescue.

Rock Chick Rescue takes you on a wild ride with Jet, Eddie and the gang as they wrestle bad guys in a bagel shop, hit Denver’s backstreet poker tables (with big hair), and help the strippers at Smithie’s take down a would-be murderer.

Through this, Jet’s got to learn that even when life made you give up your dreams, you can still end up with the (hot) guy. Eddie’s got to rescue Jet from a bad man (so he can do better things with her) and teach her that some dreams can come true.


Now I should start this by saying I have in fact, read every one of the books in this series thus far.  There is still Ally and Ren's story due out later this year.  And out of all of those books, only two of them, this one and Rock Chick Regret, have made me flat out cry.  For very different reasons.

Jet's story was so hard on my emotions because I have felt her pain.  That feeling that no matter what you do, you are always going to be struggling and barely keeping your head above water.  Throw in her father being a gambling jackass, her mom's failing health, very few friends to rely on, two full time jobs that are both physically draining and emotionally so, never being able to sleep, and always wondering how you are going to do everything yourself with no  help, and you have a recipe for a complete and total breakdown.

Yet Jet seems, for the most part, to keep it together.  In walks Eddie Chavez.  He is gorgeous (as are ALL the KA alpha men for the record).  Tall, Hispanic, handsome and bossy.  A perfect KA alpha.  He tries to help Jet out in so many ways and because of her stubbornness, she keeps tying to push him away.  I think the reason I liked her so much and the reason this book wreaked havoc on my emotions is because I can relate to her.  Being stubborn, wanting to handle it on your own (especially if you are used to be alone), pushing people away are things I can totally relate to.

Thank goodness that Jet is able to let go and let Eddie in.  He handles her with care and love and  you see why he is easy to fall in love with.  This book gets 5 stars and is one of my favorites in this series.  Funny enough the other book to make me feel this kind of emotion is Regret and it features the other Chavez man...Hector.  Must be a Chavez thing...

This get 5 lipsticks!  One of my favorites of this series!
