Lets get down to it. Vance
is hands-down more intense, more "dark", and slightly more aggressive than his Hot Bunch predecessors. In Rock Chick Redemption
, I had lots of questions about him after he saved Roxie. All those questions were answered in this one! Every single answer
gave me clarity and planted the seed of love in the pit of my stomach for Vance. With every real moment he gave to Jules, the Vance love flower grew and spread until I pretty much was a weeping mess of love for the big guy!Jules
is a social worker. She sees some rough, gut-wrenching, stuff out on the street. Seeing it, seeing what it does to two of her "boys", Jules decides to make it her mission to rid the streets of drug dealers. Or, at the very least, to be a Texas-sized thorn in their operation. Very likable things in a heroine except for one thing: she annoyed the hell out of me. The constant "I'm breaking up with you," and "I'm a head crackin' mamma jamma," and her inner Rottweiler irritated me. But, I kept reading and the more I learned about Jules, the more I realized she has some deep wounds that she does stupid shit to keep them from busting wide open again. And once she got it
, her character growth rocketed forward and I knew, without a doubt, she's a Rock Chick worth likin'!
There's a lot of fun to be had, as with all the Rock Chick books. Tons of outrageous moments that'll make you laugh, groan, smile, and plenty of sexiness from Vance to illicit a cold shower or five! At its heart, Rock Chick Renegade
is about family...the kind you create, the people you'll die for, the ones who are your home.• 4½ Happy-Reader Stars!
