In Rock Chick Rescue Jet McAllister has been swept away by Eddie Chavez after a few blunders along the way. Eddie is trying to keep Jet safe and has her nestled in his home but after she is put in danger, again her family flocks to her side along with Eddies. Jet had planned on making chili and Eddie’s mother is constantly checking to see if she is doing it right. A great scene in the book inspired this weeks White Bean Chili with Avocado Cream from My Recipes. I did not do the cream though just cut up avocado as I was making and rolling out cornbread biscuit dough and it took up the rest of my time. Delicious though, not sure I have mentioned that my husband is vegetarian so I baked the chicken on the side and added in once done to my bowl. Kristen Ashley is one of my go to authors, her books are always fantastic and have humor, action and kickass characters. If you have not tried her books you should.Rock Chick Rescue by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Always one to carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, Jet McAlister has yet another thing she is trying to work her way out of. She has a huge crush on Eddie Chavez, who frequents Fortnum’s the coffee place she is working at, problem is his good looks and sexy sway have a way of making her look like a blathering idiot and jumpy to boot.
When Jet’s long lost father makes a sudden appearance, Eddie has had enough of skirting around Jet. He plans to make his move, but a slight misunderstanding, a man with a knife, and an ill advised and not well thought out fight on Jet’s part has her a target for some of the seediest characters out there. All the sudden the jumpy Jet is blossoming into the fiesty sensual woman he knew was under there and he has no plans to share. He just has to convince Jet she is with him, stop the attempts on her life, and try to figure out the next hair brained ideas she has running rampant in her head before she gets herself killed.
The gangs all there, Tex is back one of my favorites from the first book as well as Lee, Indy, Ally and others. I give this one a 4.75, got a slight ding because Jet is so smart and yet clueless at times. Eddie is a bit different than I thought he would be from the first book but in a good way. A satisfying addition to the first book.
**Reread and had a slightly different perspective since I had read before. Still stand by my original rating, Jet is an interesting character but sometimes you wanted to shake her and say wake up.
