Romance novels require an ability to temporarily suspend reality in order to buy in to the story, we all know that. However, when I can't maintain that suspension and keep getting jolted by the absurdity, I become disengaged. In this case, the heroine is just too stupid to live! Even the stupidiest of the stupid would not have made the choices this silly chick made. The author just went for the easy set up to move the story line along, and, as it turns out, I've discovered I like my heroines to be brave and smart. Brave and foolish doesn't do it for me. The narrator did a good job, kept me engaged on a very long car drive.

Would you consider the audio edition of Rock Chick Redemption to be better than the print version?
I didn't read the print version, but I can't imagine it would be any better than the audio. It was ably performed and completely engaging.
What did you like best about this story?
Where to start?! Action, romance, tons of hilarity. I've gone through the Rock Chick series in order so far, so as of now, this one is definitely my favorite. The heroine wasn't nearly as annoying as Jet in Rock Chick Rescue, and though she was self-deprecating, it wasn't to the point of wanting to tear my hair out. She shares the same insecurities as a lot of women, yet maintains a confidence that the last heroine was sorely lacking.
All of the side characters in this installment were FANTASTIC! They were fully fleshed out and really added to the story. They were engaging without stealing focus from the main storyline.
The action wasn't quite as intense as the previous books for me, but I didn't mind it. If every book was laden with harrowing situations fraught with danger, it would begin to become old hat and expected. I think there was a good balance here, not to dark and dangerous, not to light and fluffy.
What about Susannah Jones’s performance did you like?
She was AMAZING! There were scenes with around 10 characters (probably more) and every single voice was distinct, the emotion of the delivery was right on point, and the pacing was perfect. I've enjoyed her other performances in the series as well as a few that she's done outside the Rock Chick books, and this one was my favorite so far. I think my favorite character was Roxie's mom, Trish, Susannah did a wonderful job with her characterization and delivery.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It was hilarious, I laughed so many times! Some chuckles and some real belly laughs, especially when Roxie's mom was around. Thankfully, unlike the last book, my reaction was NOT to toss my iPad across the room because the characters were making me nutty.
