Review: Rock Chick Renegade by Kristen Ashley

Title: Rock Chick Renegade 
By: Kristen Ashley
Series: Rock Chick #4
My Copy:
Book Whisperer Rating: 

Jules has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance has made it his mission that Jules won’t get dead while dishing out vigilante justice. Jules doesn’t have time for romance, she’s too busy saving the world and she enlists Zip (the gunstore owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help.

The Rock Chicks of Fortnum’s Bookstore get involved to provide romantic advice and guidance, none of which Jules accepts at first. The Hot Bunch of Nightingale Investigations adopt Jules as one of their own. Even though Jules tries to hang on to her inner Head Crackin’ Mamma Jamma, the Rock Chicks; Hot Bunch; Jules’s long-suffering Uncle Nick; Jules’s friend the rotund, African-American, Jackie-O wannabe, May; and especially Vance will stop at nothing to wear her down.

But Jules makes some bad guys pretty angry and one is dedicated to taking her out. Vance and the Hot Bunch have to pull out all the stops to keep her alive. At the same time, Jules and Vance learn the true meaning of home but once they find this precious entity they’ve been searching for all their lives, will Jules’s enemies tear it away?

To me, Jules is a different kind of Rock Chick in this collection.  All the other Rock Chick were either brought into a dangerous situation or stumbled upon it but Jules went out and created these dangerous situations for herself.  Jules does this to keep drugs from getting in the hands of the kids she loves, since she is a social worker.  All I can say is, probably not smart to rile up drug dealers but very noble.  This gets her into some small trouble and Vance steps in to eliminate that small trouble. 
Did I like this book? Absolutely!  Kristen Ashley has never let me down.  It is straight up drama at every turn, dangerous, good-deed doing bad boys saturate the pages, and hot, sexy scenes between Jules and Vance makes me love this book and continue loving the series.  I really loved that KA added Luke into this book more because something about him just oozes sexiness and I can’t wait to read more about him.
