Rock Chick Redemption Review

Roxie’s on the run from a bad boyfriend who will not catch the hint that it is o-v-e-r. She’s in no mood for love at first sight, but when her eyes fall on Hank, it’s trouble from the get-go. Roxie tries to hold Hank at arms length but Hank wants to be a closer (as in, a lot closer). Roxie’s trouble catches up with her and Hank wants to help but Roxie knows in her heart that she’s no good for a white hat guy. The problem is no one agrees with her, especially her crazy hippie best friend Annette or her parents; the even crazier small-Indiana-town Herb and Trish. Toss into the mix the gang from Rock Chick and Rock Chick Rescue and Roxie finds herself totally outnumbered.

Climb in for another Rock Chick wild ride through Rock Chick Redemption. As the odds stack up against Roxie, she has no choice but to hold on and just ride it out through the kidnappings, car chases, society parties, a riot at the strip club, Hank getting “Mom Bombed” and one crazy night at the Haunted House.

During all this Hank works at convincing her she really wants to stay and he, along with the Hot Bunch, go all out to make her safe. Hank also needs to work on showing Roxie that her past decisions don’t mean her future can’t include something as downright delicious as… normal.

This is the third installment of the Rock Chick Series, and it is where we start to see a really dark side to the Rock Chicks.  In the first two, there were definitely struggles and danger, however in Redemption we actually see one of the RC's get hurt.  Roxie goes through hell just to get away from an ex that doesn't understand the word no.  

Roxie is a complete nut.  She is the niece to Tex so it is sort of understandable that she is a little out there in personality.  She is beautiful and funny as hell.  Super smart and capable of doing anything except keeping herself out of trouble.  And the minute she lays eyes on Hank Nightingale she falls in love.  Of course, why wouldn't she?  Unfortunately she is taken from Hanks' home in a violent and brutal manner.  My heart broke for her as we see Vance go to find her cuffed to a sink in a dirty motel, bruised and broken.  

She refers to Hank as "Whiskey", which I have to say I LOVED!  I thought him calling her "Sunshine" was cute as well, but the Whiskey nickname was the absolute best of the group.  Hank is everything you expect him to be, noble and kind to a fault.  Yet he still has that Alpha male tendency of taking over situations and bossing poor Roxie around.  

I adore Hank. Of all the Hot Bunch he is the one that is, without a doubt, the good old boy! And that makes him the most incredibly genuine sweet one of the bunch! That being said, there were times I wanted to shake Roxie to death! Understandably she had a ton of stuff on her plate, but what won me over in this book wasn't her. It was Hank, and what he would give for her. Even offering to let her go so she could be truly free. That is my idea of Prince Charming!

This is one of my favorites in the group.  I give this 4.5 lipsticks!
