Rock Chick Reawakening
What was a total treat that KA wrote this. I have always loved Daisy and this just made me love her even more. She is who she is and she makes no apologies. I love her for it.
This was regular formula KA and - while that formula has blushed off the rose for me in many ways as of late - this was a fun prequel read that reminded me of all the reading joy KA has given my over the years. I enjoyed it.
Please don't suck.
This narrator is by far one of my favourites and Rock Chick Reawakening definitely reinforced that. Daisy and Marcus are two very different characters but she manages to pull them both off equally well. Listening to this makes me want to do a re-listen of the whole series...AGAIN.
I loved every minute of this story but it goes way too fast. I wanted to be in their world longer and see them together, living their lives together, growing together. I neede ...more
I haven’t read a KA book in ages! I missed it. I forgot all about that happy, fuzzy feeling that envelops you like a warm and cozy blanket on a cold winter night.
I missed all those crossed ankles, tickets to Timbuktu, lips touching noses, mouth quirkings and Just sayin’s and other awesome KAisms. I missed her short, clipped alpha sentences and all those pronoun skippings and letter droppings. I even missed those ridiculously long and complicated ones, I swear.
What I did not miss, ...more
To say this was one of my MOST anticipated books of the year would be an understatement. The ROCK CHICK series is by far one of my most favorite series. In fact, to date, I have re-read it 14 times (except for Ally's book. I didn't like that one *lol*)
"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"
That said, that la ...more
"There ain't no prince charming for a girl like me."
When it comes to happiness, I can sum it up in two words Kristen Ashley. When it comes to double happiness, you can add anything ROCK CHICK next to the words Kristen Ashley. Indeed, KA has done it again with this sweet and sexy novella Rock Chick Reawakening! Rock Chick fans have been waiting and wanting more, and the delivery of Marcus and Daisy's story is utter perfection!

Daisy and Marcus Sloane. If you’ve read the Rock Chick books, they are two characters you are familiar with. And I’m sure just like me, you fell in love with Daisy the moment you met her in that series. She’s so sweet, fun, and easy to love. Getting their story was not something I expected, but I was happy to read it nonetheless.
I loved seeing Daisy’s past, seeing how she and Marcus met and the way he treated her, always handling her with care. Their relationship was beautiful ...more
For me, reading certain authors is like going home. But reading Kristen Ashley is more like going home, falling asleep in your childhood bedroom under that old, familiar quilt your grandmother made for you eons ago, waking up in the morning to the smell of the most delicious breakfast cooking downstairs then coming down to the kitchen only to find your whole family sitting at a large table, happy to see you ... it's THAT comforting. THAT familiar. I am always happy to be in the warm embrace of K ...more
I couldn’t be more pleased…well maybe if K.A. decides to give us more of these wonderful characters. I’m all for that!
Rock Chick Reawakening takes us back to the beginning of Daisy’s story. There are glimpses into how other relationship amongst the characters formed as well, but the primary focus is the love story between Daisy and Marcus.
For the record, I’ve always loved Daisy. She’s one of my favorite characters. Some of the sweetest and funn ...more
This is one of my all time favorite series by Kristen Ashley, so you can imagine how happy I was when I saw it on my kindle! And OMG I need to tell you how amazing it was! Rock Chick Reawakening was sweet and emotional! Daisy and Marcus where one of the couples that from the first moment they were introduced I wanted to know their story!
Marcus was everything, he is mysterious, dark, charming, a gentleman and sweet. He cared so much for Daisy and wanted to make her happy! I loved Dai ...more
5 Honey bunches of love stars
Daisy and Marcus’ romance was nothing short of brilliant. Comprende?
One of my most anticipated releases, this eloquently written novella is not only Kristen Ashley at her very finest but also absolute proof that she truly adores her fans. Reawakening is a gift to all the Rock Chicks out there who yearned for this couple’s journey. For new readers, it’s a great introduction into the fantastical world of KA. Be prepared, this emotional story will pull on your heart ...more

To say I was excited to hear KA was writing Daisy and Marcus’s story is an understatement, I have wanted their story for a very long time, I was beyond excited!!! I’ve wanted to know how Daisy fell for….no way ...more
Like many of you, I've always imagined what Daisy and Marcus' story must have been like, the romance and the poignancy behind their happily ever after. The power of their love to overcome anything and everything. The chance to get inside Marcus' head - and his heart - and discover all the things he feels for Daisy, and why he feels them. This isn't just wonderful, it's AMAZING!
I remember Kristen Ashley saying that she knew everyone wanted this story, that it was one of the m ...more
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Kristen Ashley, so if course I was going to read this book. Daisy was a character that was featured throughout the Rock Chick series and one that was impossible to miss. With her big hair, loud personality and overall sparkliness, there just wasn't anyway you couldn't notice her.
In her own story we get really small glimpses of some of the Rock Chicks but they didn't take ay focus off of Daisy and Marcus, which was good since I wanted to learn all about thes ...more

The series Rock Chicks had a certain charm...and it was infectious. Once you had been exposed to the way KA wrote... you either succumbed to the phrasing, descriptions and way people communicated or not....but whether the writing of KA became your holy grail...you would always remember the experience and find certain elements uniquely and wonderfully swoon worthy...It was KA's way.
It has been a while since the last entry to Rock ...more
First - Kristen Ashley - I am pissed at you. I was up until 2am reading this m'fing book because it was so damn good. I get up for work at 5:30am - so I totally blame you for the exhaustion. PLUS - I cried the entire time! So not only am I tired, I look a freakin mess with puffy eyes. So I am pissed (not at all) because I had no idea what a punch this book would pack.
I have read the entire Rock Chick series. Actually more than one. Some books and chara ...more
I always knew Daisy and Marcus' story would be one for the books, and it was a fairytale that only KA could deliver. I still can't believe this was a novella because it delivered so much. I can't even begin to tell you how much Daisy and Marcus entrapped me with their love in the Rock Chick series, they are as memorable as the main characters themselves and for them to get a chance to tell their story, it was simply magical.
Marcus knew Daisy is the one ...more
KA and I have officially filed for divorce after this last and final attempt at any reconciliation. Reason being: Irreconcilable differences. Let it be known to all; that we both tried really hard... until we couldn't try anymore.
I'm sure all lovers of KA, especially fans of the Rock Chick series will luuuurve this book, because they get to reacquaint themselves with their beloved characters and storyline. But for me; it was like being a plus one to a reunion par ...more
OMG… I want to have a man build a Castle for me!!
Marcus .. Swoon stole my beating heart!
I have been dying to learn more about Daisy since forever it feels like, she just has that charisma you can’t help but want to be near or learn about. Nothing seems to get her down, this book oh my it just hits you in the feels.
She deserves a Marcus more than anyone. She has her own hot guy right there.
This book is about her before Marcus and how she meets him and how they co ...more
I absolutely love Kristen Ashley. She is one of my favorite authors and whenever I need a comfort-read, I re-read one of her books. Out of all of Kristen Ashley's wonderful series, "Rock Chicks" is my favorite.
So, when I found out that Daisy and Marcus were getting their own little novella, I was so happy, I peed a little !!
I devoured this book !! It had everything a Kristen Ashley book is known for. It was an emotional read at times and it definitely made me cry. It was also so very sweet thoug ...more
This book was amazing!! It's the story of how Daisy and Marcus started and to say that this made me happy (after so long) would be an understatement!! This book was classic Kristen Ashley and the Rock Chick crew were just as I remembered them. Daisy was very much a southern belle, Dolly Parton-esque, slightly tacky stripper but you couldn't help but love the hell out of her. We learn about her beginnings and it sure wasn't pretty. But every time I read her say ...more
I love Daisy she is the bomb she is HILARIOUS even with everything she has been through she does it glammed up and dressed up to the nines with her own style, my heart broke for her in this story ...more
Marcus=Best Book Boyfriend!!! Equal parts Swoon and Panty melting!!! Considering what happened to her, and how he dealt with it, I captured my heart! Adored this story so much, it took the place as one of my all time KA favorites! And that is saying a lot. What a start for this new year! Rock on 2017!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 ...more
I have been waiting for this story for a long time, and honestly, I was a little nervous. Sure I wanted to learn more about Daisy, but I was more curious about Marcus. He has always been the scary bad ass that everyone was afraid of. Well, we did see a little of why he is so scary, but we also saw his beautiful adoration for Daisy. I loved how this man, who weaves in and out of criminal activity, was nothing but sweet and gentle with her.
My heart hurt for Daisy ...more

“You don’t know what kind of girl I am.”
“I know precisely the kind of woman you are, Daisy. And if you don’t understand it, then it’ll be up to me to show it to you.”
Finally we get Daisy and Marcus’ story and it was even better that I hope it would be!!
I’d been knocked down. Again and again.
I just kept getting up.
And I was still standing, in platforms, with great hair.
