Publisher's Summary

Stella Gunn is the lead singer and lead guitarist of the Blue Moon Gypsies, and Stella used to be Mace’s girl. But Kai “Mace” Mason broke up with her and the loss of him rocked her world. One night, Stella gets a call, late (again), from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up (again) and runs into Mace (and a shed load of police) and ends up getting shot. Mace finds he doesn’t like it much that his ex-girlfriend got shot right in front of him, but it’s worse. A very bad man has thrown down the gauntlet, and all the Rock Chicks are in the firing line. Stella doesn’t want Mace to be the one to keep her alive, but she has no choice. Mainly because Mace isn’t giving her one.

I found myself muttering to/at Stella

What did you like best about Rock Chick Reckoning? What did you like least?

I liked the closeness of all the people in the story. The most-of-the-time cool head of "Mace"The bulldozer effect could make me laugh. What I liked least ? Stella. Okay she has issues. Okay she's mostly keeping it together some of the time BUT after a while I found myself muttering to her ... " Oh good Lord I can't believe you said that!" "Can she really be that stupid?" *Eye roll* When she should have been getting 'it' she sticks her head in the sand. Not seeing things as they are but in her own screwed up perception. Yikes. Of all the Rock Chicks I liked Stella the least.


If you’ve listened to books by Kristen Ashley before, how does this one compare?

I'm kinda new to Kristen Ashley's books. Although I started with Law Man and Motorcycle Man and now have a number of the Rock Chicks series ... This has all the drama, roller coaster ups and downs and passion of the other books. That part is solid. The story was good. I've liked others better, like the first Rock Chick and Rock Chick Rescue. I gave it a three overall and a five for the performance. I should/could bump up the 'story' to a four but *shakes head* the "Stella thing"


Have you listened to any of Susannah Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This one is right in line with her other performances. I'm satisfied with how she read the parts of the different characters. Some people's reading is like nails on chalkboard. Not Susannah. She is good.


Do you think Rock Chick Reckoning needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There already is a follow up kinda with at least another book in the series after this one. If you mean continue on with Mace and Stella, their life together? No. Oh good Lord no. More stories in which Mace and Stella are a part of sure.


Any additional comments?

I am never moving to Colorado. Never. And Denver? I think I'd feel safer in L.A. Listening/reading these books is as close as I'd ever want to be even if it means I don't get my own Hot Bunch guy *sigh*

Rock Chick Reckoning

If you’re wondering nope this isn’t my favorite one either, we are getting there. Though I did enjoy this book, I mean who wouldn’t its Mace for crying out loud.

This book is about Rock Chick Stella and Hot Guy Mace.

I think one of the things I enjoyed about this book over the others is that they were together before the book but had broken up.
So they had a different kind of past other than growing up together. Not that all the others were like that some were just connected in a different way.

Boy oh boy this book has action! This book has a lot of gun fire and suspense also quite a few twists as well I didn’t see coming.

Getting to know Stella and Mace’s story you see why they didn’t work the first time, they both kept their past to themselves. No one wanted to open up. Stella didn’t have a very loving environment growing up so when she got the affection and love from Mace she kind of used him up or that’s what she told herself.

‘For your information, it was the single most beautiful moment of my life.’ - Stella

Mace had a great sister and mother only things went bad and his sister was kidnapped and murdered in front of him. So that messed with his head a lot.

“Dance with me, Kitten,” he whispered.

None of this should be spoilers but either way I hide that encase anyone doesn’t want to know back story and wants to go in blind.

So now that things are coming to light they both still fight the pull, Stella wants them to be together then she doesn’t then Mace wants them to be together but Stella doesn’t it’s fun and witty and downright entertaining.

“Watchin’ you sing that, hearin’ the words, knowin’ what it meant, it was then I knew I loved you, Stella.”- Mace

Also 2 last things Mace calling Stella “Kitten” swoon! And the 5 years later at the end of the book with all the Rock Chicks is awesome!
Ok 3 things Jane, we get to know Jane’s character as the quiet employee that has been working at Fortnums forever. So when we get a little glimpse in to her mind.. Well I had to share.. :D

‘Jane decided in that second that Eddie and Jet were going to be her favorites for the day. She changed them every day depending on what she witnessed. Sometimes it was Lee and Indy. Other times, Hank and Roxie. Other, Jules and Vance or Luke and Ava, and now Mace and Stella. Today it was Jet and Eddie.’ - Jane :-)
