5 Stars

Series: Rock Chick #8
Published by Smashwords
Pages: 530
Format: ARC

If you haven’t read this series, you need to start RIGHT NOW, they are full of laughs, full of heart and even better choc full of some sexy assed alpha males and some sassy females to keep them on their toes. ~ Under the Covers

The final tale in the series is about the last single gal within the Rock Chick, Ally Nightingale and a new(ish) addition to the Hot Bunch Lorenzo “Ren” Zano. Ally has finally found what she wants to do; sleuthing seems to run in the Nightingale blood and becoming a private detective like her brother Lee suits her perfectly. However, with two overprotective big brothers and a few bad guys gunning for her, not to mention a kind of boyfriend who doesn’t like the idea much, she may find it harder then she thinks.

It was was with a sense of both excitement and trepidation that I opened the last of the Rock Chick books, excitement as we finally get Ally’s book and trepidation as I DON’T WANT IT TO END!! What will I do without my regular dose of Rock Chicks and the Hot Bunch!? Why must all good things come to an end?

But come to end they have, and it was a spectacular way to go, leaving Ally’s book to the end was genius, we have all come to love her through the last 7 books and her independence and strong will make the last book explosive and emotional as we watch this fantastic series wind down. This book differs slightly from the others as Ren and Ally are sort of together at the beginning of the book and as you progress through we watch as they both come closer together as Ally opens herself up.

Ahhh, Ren…although not my favourite of the Hot Bunch, he is still a classic KA alpha male and I love every last one of them. Sexy, strong, kind but also in Ren’s case slightly more laid back than usual, he was perfect for Ally, stepping forward when she needed him, but also (after a few fights!) supporting her decisions, even when he didn’t like them. Together they were great and I am glad the series has ended with a bang.

Like every book in this series, as well as the explosive passion you get from the main couple, you witness the friendships and love in the group, as well as a bit of action and crazy antics. What has made this one of my favourite series is the aforementioned friendships and connections, I love reading about the other girls in the group, seeing friendship given as much time and valued as much as romance is beautiful. Another thing that KA does really well is epilogues, and this one is no exception, it leaves you with a big smile on your face and may be a tear in the eye as you wave goodbye to your favourite characters, quietly hoping they make a cameo in future books and series by Ms Ashley!

If you haven’t read this series, you need to start RIGHT NOW, they are full of laughs, full of heart and even better choc full of some sexy assed alpha males and some sassy females to keep them on their toes.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
