Publisher's Summary

Ava Barlow hates men. She has reason and she’s vowed not only never to get involved with another one again, but also to exact vengeance on her best friend’s lying, cheating, rat-bastard husband. Since Luke Stark, Ava's childhood crush, is now a badass mother, she thinks to enlist him, but changes her mind at the last second. Too late. Luke knows she’s up to something and he’s already seen many a Rock Chick try to fight her own battles without the Hot Bunch stepping in. He’s having none of it. She’s having none of him. The clash of the Rock Chick and Hot Guy begins, but Luke’s got the advantage. He has handcuffs and he’s not afraid to use them.

Can I get a WOW accompanied by a HOLY F?

We all know that you can swoon over fictional characters but seriously Kristen Ashley? Luke Stark is a GOD among fictional characters. There are women right now comparing the men in their real lives to him. Good god… this book!

I have to admit that at first, I didn't quite care for Ava. I found myself yelling out loud “oh come on, woman” (a la Tex) more so than I had at any previous Rock Chick heroine. I thankfully got over it probably a quarter of the way through (not the yelling, but I softened towards her quite a bit).

I liked how she was relate-able, more so than some of the other RC heroines.
I liked how she struggled with herself, not understanding herself currently as she is mentally stuck in the person she perceived she was before.
I loved the history between Ava and Luke.
I loved the old fashion parking lot throw down.

Alright, alright. I just down right loved Luke Stark! The glimpses, bits and pieces that we saw of him leading up to Rock Chick Revenge were sweet, touching and kick a**. Nothing compared to what we got of him in this book.

I also really love how you don’t lose track of the other characters as you move through the series. They are all up in each other’s business and there is no chance to forget about them, and this is really special. I haven’t found another series that pulls this off to such a degree, and I can’t wait to see what else is in store for the Rock Chicks and the Hot Bunch.

So, thank you Kristen Ashley for giving us such amazing characters. As much as they can get on your ever-loving last nerve, it is a bunch of people that you fall in love with during this literary journey.

Rock Chick Revenge

I <3 all the Rock Chick books as you probably can tell. Ava’s book is good not my favorite we haven’t gotten to that one yet but she is a contender.

Ava and Luke’s Story

She I think fights her pull to the Hot Guys the most of all of them. Maybe it was her self-esteem because of her weight before. Maybe it was because Luke knew her when she wasn’t the way she is now. I don’t know… But what I do know is Luke is one hot mother… He doesn’t care how much Ava fights he is there to show her he cares. He wants her IN his life. This quote I think is why she fights it so hard.

‘Because worse than never getting what you always wanted was having it and losing it.’ - Ava

As I am a plus size girl, I totally relate to all of Ava’s struggles she got called names at home by her sisters. Mine happened at school. She had a huge crush on the boy across the street; I had a huge crush on a boy in the next building. Maybe this is why I loved this book so much and I think everyone who believes in fairy tales and second chances or childhood crushes needs to read this book.

‘I was never going to tell him it embarrassed me that he held me when I was Fatty Fatty Four-Eyes. No way I was going to tell him that I lost weight, dyed my hair and got contacts because I’d been in love with him since I was eight. (he wasn’t wrong about me being his, but I wasn’t going to tell him that, either) and I wanted him to notice me.’ - Ava

I think what I like best with all the struggles they all go through in this book, the Rock Chicks still make Ava apart of their inner circle its totally awesome. The girls get into some shenanigans.

“Let’s talk about why Smithie’s in a tree.” – Luke
“That’s why I’m calling. Two German Shepherds have treed him in a stranger’s backyard. He was canvassing Noah’s old neighborhood. I’m not clear about how that happened, but the dogs aren’t happy and we can’t get him down.” - Ava

And Luke finally gets Ava to stop fighting and just be, once this happens it’s fun and funny and witty. Not that she goes docile because hell no I don’t think Ava will ever be the docile kind of women. She just stops fighting their relationship and then the good times come. :D

“Tell me, and I swear to God, I’ll make it so you won’t be scared ever again,” – Luke

Swoon, right or am I right!!
Again the narration I can’t get over how she makes everyone unique, but not only that even “Good Ava” and “Bad Ava” were super distinct I was never confused! Amazing.
