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.

This stand alone Rock Chick novella was nothing but beautiful heartfelt emotion. In classic Kristen Ashley style she’s given us character’s with remarkable depth, who grow and evolve around an unshakable love (with super alpha growls and possessiveness thrown in LOL).  Two people who on the surface appear to have nothing in common but underneath have suffered, overcome and moved forward in what’s their version of a happily ever after.

As a HUGE fan of the Rock Chick Series I was really excited to get my hands on this book!  I mean REALLY excited! I’ve always been intrigued by Marcus and Daisy so when I saw this was their story I almost started doing a jig…almost 😉

If you’ve read the Rock Chick series you’ve already been introduced to Marcus.  He’s dark and dangerous; someone you definitely don’t want to mess with.  He’s also a fabulously hot alpha male who wants nothing more than to protect and cherish the beautiful stripper Daisy.  Marcus is so totally understanding and supportive of Daisy.  He’s freakin’ amazing.  He gets how she needs to feel like she matters and is willing to do anything to be her prince charming.

But holy hell did I fall in love with Daisy’s character.  I was moved in a way that was almost too real considering Daisy is just a character in a book.  I admired her strength and her approach to life. Even when horrible things happen she gets back up and moves forward appreciating all the good, if and when it comes.

“I’d been knocked down. Again and again. I just kept getting up. And I was still standing, in platforms, with great hair.”

Gotta love it! But what touched my heart was that bright vulnerable light almost hidden behind the ugliness she suffered in her life.  She’s such a sweet and good person.  Even in her darkest moments that doesn’t waiver.

Marcus saw that as well.  He was drawn to it and understood her in a way that no one else could.

“A woman like you should have had a momma who loved her. A daddy who adored her. Friends who thought the world of her. She should have grown up every day knowing that straight to her soul, never doubting it, not for a second”

He also knew to his core that Daisy was the one for him even when she didn’t believe it.  And when Marcus wants something he gets it!

“You know every step of your life was leading you right here.  You’re the women for me, which means, darling, I’m the man for you.  And you didn’t tell me to leave because you know that just the same as me.”

Boy did I love the ending. Kristen Ashley writes THE BEST epilogues, hands down! Made my heart happy and brought huge smiles to my face.  Truly beautiful read.  Rock on Marcus and Daisy!! Hahaha

A Message from Kristen:

Dear Reader,

I’m beside myself with glee that this prequel to my Rock Chick series has been unleashed! There was some time when I never thought I’d write it. When I couldn’t be in that terrible place with Daisy. But I’m oh-so glad that she called to me, demanding her story be told so she could give it to me and now I can give it to you! I loved every moment spent with Daisy and Marcus. And I hope you do too!

~Kristen Ashley

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and 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 accessorize and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with 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, it keeps getting better.
