Rock Chick Reborn (Rock Chick #9) Reviews
I hate to admit this, but I might have fallen out of love with Kristen Ashley's writing style, either that or her books have just changed dramatically as of late. I was addicted to KA's books previously and have read upwards of thirty of her work, but I'm just not feeling it anymore. I didn't connect to this book much at all and I just found it emotionally dramatic and confusing. The emotional scenes where I was meant to feel strongly for the characters did nothing for me, and I thought ...more
I thought, what the hell, I've read the whole series. Let's see how badass Shirleen gets her happy ending.
But, alas, I forgot about how much Kristen Ashley can drive me insane.
Shirleen suddenly was NOT a badass anymore. She was a wimp with low self-esteem who actually whispered when she talked!! Not that! Anything but that! One of my most hated of all things KA has her heroines do!
Then, the story was not really a story, but 250 pages of two people talking about all of their baggage. It was like ...more
I could take or leave the Rock Chick series...there were only a few books I enjoyed. I wasn't much of a fan of Shirleen in these novels as she reminded me of the equally annoying Elvira in another KA series.

First let me say I applaud KA for writing a couple that is over 50 and still getting busy. Age is just a number, after all. I feel more alive at 48 than I ever did at 28.
But let me tell you why this disappointed me. Yes, I know Shirleen and Moses were black. That didn't matter to me. Some of my best friends are black. And asian. And east asian. What bothered me is that KA made race a part of the story. She writes Shirleen as a very likeable character, but also stereotypes her. There's also a co ...more
What a fun ride! I had a smile on my face the whole time.
What a pleasant surprise as I did not like the Rock Chick books that I’ve read
What I liked:
- H/h were both older, in fact heroine is older by 2 yrd as she is 53 and Hero is 51
- Low drama and no hijinx. The focus was on their romance and basically the Hero pursuing the h
What I didn’t like:
- the appearance of other Rock Chicks as the other women were annoying
Got a question though: of her 2 sons, Roam and Sniff, which one is black and which one is white? I wondered about this in the epilogue
