Stella’s the lead singer and lead guitarist of the Blue Moon Gypsies and Stella used to be Mace’s girl. Mace broke up with her though and the loss of him rocked her world. But Stella gets a call, late at night (again) from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up (again) and runs into Mace (and a shed load of police) and ends up getting shot.
Mace finds he doesn’t like it much that his ex-girlfriend got shot, right in front of him but it’s worse. A very bad man has thrown down the gauntlet and ALL the Rock Chicks are in the firing line. Stella doesn’t want Mace to be the one to keep her alive but she has no choice… mainly because Mace isn’t giving her one.
I love, love, love the Rock Chick books! They are a must read and you should read them in order.
I loved Stella from the beginning but Mace was such a jerk for a while I didn’t like him. Then in the end even I might of had an inner Mace slut.
I would give it 10 stars if possible
I am SO glad I ignored the negative reviews for this book. Sure, this installment of the Rock Chick series was darker and less goofy than the rest. But I truly believe Ms. Ashley wrote some of her best work here- the characters are deep, complex, and passionate. Their trauma is what binds them and strengthens them and their love. Stella's character was beautiful, strong, and loving. Mace was broken but he treated Stella with care after they got through their initial crap. I read in other reviews that people thought Stella pulled Mace along for too long, and that Mace was "abusive". I expected to be disappointed. I think those reviewers read a different book than I did, because compared to the rest of the series I felt like Stella let Mace in faster than a number of the previous ladies. Their story was profound, beautiful, HOT, and more rich than the past books. I also enjoyed the extra POV's that allowed us moments with our past favorite couples, and gave us a chance to see Stella and Mace from the outside. I did NOT read the epilogue after hearing that it contained season spoilers- I'll read it after I finish the season.
TLDR; this book was INCREDIBLE- don't listen to the negative reviews. Some of Kristen Ashley's best work.
