Rock Chick Rescue by Kristen Ashley
Jet McAlister has a secret. Eddie Chavez has the hots for Jet (not to mention, Eddie's just, plain hot). Jet has too many problems to realize that Eddie's interested. Eddie loses patience when Jet ends her waitressing shift at a strip club with a knife at her throat. Since Eddie's a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet's used to solving everyone's problems, she doesn't want Eddie's help. Throw in a Dolly Parton look-alike, a gruff but lovable strip club owner, Jet's ne'er-do-well father, his ne'er-do-well friend, Bear, Bear's long-suffering, chain-smoking wife Lavonne and the crew from Rock Chick and you've got Rock Chick Rescue. Rock Chick Rescue takes you on a wild ride with Jet, Eddie and the gang as they wrestle bad guys in a bagel shop, hit Denver's backstreet poker tables (with big hair), and help the strippers at Smithie's take down a would-be murderer.Through this, Jet's got to learn that, even when life made you give up your dreams, you can still end up with the (hot) guy. Eddie's got to rescue Jet from a bad man (so he can do better things with her) and teach her that some dreams can come true.
I read this book straight after finishing Rock Chick and was therefore hoping for some of the same type of fun sexy story but I have to say this was not as good as its predecessor. This book followed the story of Jet and Eddie Chavez the police detective who we meet in the first book.
I was very excited to read about Eddie, in Rock Chick he comes across as a sex on legs flirt but he didn't live up to that for me in Rock Chick Rescue. Don't get me wrong he is still great just not as great as I thought he would be. The main reason why this book didn't work as well as the first was Jet. She really annoyed me with her lack of confidence and again like Indy she did some really stupid things. There is one scene at the end of the book that in my opinion was just not needed, seriously it was ridiculous after everything that had happened, Eddie deserved somebody better than Jet.
It was nice to have the characters that we had already come to know and love in Rock Chick be part of the story on this book and I look forward to reading the other bookd in this series to get to know them even better. Because of Jet I am going to give Rock Chick Rescue 3 stars.
