Rock Chick ( Rock Chick #1 ) by Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick by Kristen Ashley

Indy Savage, cop's daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy's employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicating matters, Lee has decided he's interested, Indy's decided she's not. But she can't seem to keep Lee out of her life when she's repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she's finding dead bodies).

Indy's best bet is to solve the mystery of the diamonds before Lee. Lee's challenge is to keep Indy alive and, at the same time, win back her heart.


Cozy Mystery


I know this series is very popular among KA fans. I love the premise with the badass hero and all. But half way through I struggle to finish the story and I don't really care about the case and mystery. The 30 yrs old heroin is quite naive and TSTL. She doesn't act like her age. I like Lee very much, but I don't think there is much character development in this book. We basically 'know' them from the get-go. Since the H/h already hook up half way through, I decided to put it aside.  

Rating -/5
