Review:

Rock Chick (Rock Chick, #1) by Kristen Ashley

Sunday, July 31
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Indy Savage, cop's daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy's employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicating matters, Lee has decided he's interested, Indy's decided she's not. But she can't seem to keep Lee out of her life when she's repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she's finding dead bodies).

Indy's best bet is to solve the mystery of the diamonds before Lee. Lee's challenge is to keep Indy alive and, at the same time, win back her heart.

I would actually subtract stars from 0 for each of the MCs in this book.


Never have I been so thrilled that a book heroine got tasered.
 

Where to start?
Being trapped in Indy's head for 70% of the book was painful. I actually felt myself getting dumber while reading her POV. This heroine (and I use that term so, so loosely) deserved every kidnapping and bullet that came her way. I suspect that the major plot device KA forgot to leave out was that Indy suffered some type of defect. Totally unrelateable - I have never met a woman this dumb in my life.

Not only was Lee a badass, he was also a dumbass. So were the 2 other men chasing Indy's tail. And as the reader, I'm expected to buy that idea why?? She had no personality. This was like the Gwen (from Mystery Man) story on crack.

Resorted to skimming until I got to here and DNF:

They shot at us.
Shot.
At.
Us.
With guns.
Guns filled with bullets.
Now I’m staring at my cell phone, wondering what in the fucking hell to do.

How does Indy live through this whole series?
