From New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Ashley, comes the long-awaited story of Daisy and Marcus, Rock Chick Reawakening. A prequel to Kristen’s Rock Chick series, Rock Chick Reawakening shares the tale of the devastating event that nearly broke Daisy, an event that set Marcus Sloane—one of Denver’s most respected businessmen and one of the Denver underground’s most feared crime bosses—into finally making his move to win the heart of the woman who stole his.



“Who’s that tall, dark drink of handsome water?” I asked Ashlynn, my eyes on the tall man with broad shoulders and fabulous suit who was sauntering out of the club in the manner of a man who owned it.

In the manner of a man who owned anything he wanted.

“Don’t go there,” Ashlynn answered.

I looked to Ashlynn.

“What, sugar?”

She shook her head. “He’s hot. Knew a girl who’s had him and I’ll repeat, he’s hot. Took her out four times. All to fancy restaurants where she had to buy fancy dresses and shoes. And he gave it to her good at the end of the night, and I mean real good, the way she described it. He also, like, opened the car door for her and everything.”

Opened the car door for her.

And everything.

Oh my.

“Ended it with her giving her a gold bracelet,” Ashlynn carried on, recapturing my attention. “Pure class.” Her look got intense as she stared into my eyes. “And he’s trouble.”

I glanced to the door that he’d obviously gone through because he’d disappeared, then back to Ashlynn.


Ashlynn didn’t answer that question.

She just shook her head again and declared, “He wouldn’t date a stripper anyway. Like I said. He’s class.”

I felt my mouth get tight.


What a treat Kristen Ashley has given all of her Rock Chick fans! Daisy was always my favorite side character throughout the series. She was always hilarious, the life of the party, and she carried around a huge heart of gold. I’m so happy she and Marcus finally have their story told in this new novella.

Marcus! What can I say about this man? He is most definitely Daisy’s Prince Charming. I absolutely fell head over heels in love with him. He gave Daisy her fairytale and everything she could have dreamed of and deserved. Even the castle!

The only complaint I have about this book is: It wasn’t long enough. Ha ha ha! This novella just skimmed the surface of Daisy and Marcus’s relationship. I would have enjoyed more time to swoon over Marcus. Even though this book is short compared to Kristen Ashley’s long-winded novels, it still packed a punch and left a wonderful impression.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and 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 multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake. Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

    I love KA so much! I was introduced to her with the Colorado Mtn. Man series then went to the Burg series, Dream Man and Unfinished Heroes, and love them dearly. But to be honest, in between, I tried the first RC book and it didn’t do much for me. I have purchased them all on Audio now and am going to try the rest of the series because all the repeat characters showing up in the other series including Marcus and Daisy intrigued me. I had been wanting to find out more about Marcus so I was excited when I heard about this release. Thanks for the post and the chance to win! =D
