REVIEW:One Week by Zoey Derrick



A week in Las Vegas and she will feel better about herself. At least that is what Dacotah Miller is hoping will be the case. Left at the alter, heart broken and ashamed, Dacotah takes the opportunity offered by her girlfriends - the chance to get away. The opportunity to escape her mundane life in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin.

But what Dacotah doesn't know is that lurking in Las Vegas is the chance of a lifetime, a dream come true, in the form of Derek Hunter.

Derek, in town on business, can't seem to focus on his purpose once Dacotah walks into his field of vision. She beautiful and just what he needs to cure his desire for a good woman in his bed. Only she presents a challenge to him unlike anything he's ever experienced before.

Dacotah will be wrapped up in a whirlwind of unexpected events that will force her to make a decision, life changing choice. Does she get on the plane back to boring Wisconsin and wonder what might have been? Or will she step on board a private jet that promises to take her on a journey she will never forget?


***** Content Warning *****

This book contains explicit sex, language and an indecent proposal from a billionaire. Story contains strong BDSM themed scenes and is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

One Week is a STANDALONE novel with over 100K words.

I was super excited to see this stand alone novel about Derek and Dakota. I got introduced to them through the 69 Bottles series in Dex's story and their characters made me super curious about how they got started.

This is another amazing story of Zoey Derrick's, God Dakota has gone through so much and is such a do everything for everyone else.She doesn't see herself as anything special or gorgeous and the only guy she was ever with was a cheater that she caught cheating at their wedding rehearsal and he keeps trying to track her down even tho he got someone else pregnant.

Now Derek or Orion as Dakota named him before she knew his name. He is something else entirely. Completely commanding and knows what he wants when he wants it. He stalks her in Vegas and gets her to agree to spend the week together where he screws up numerous times leaving her in tears and ends up falling for her.

She runs and he chases its an amazing love story I totally want to just go read it again right now so good.

REVIEW:Rock Chick Reborn (# 9) By Kristen Ashley




As a Rock Chick, Shirleen Jackson lived through all the kidnappings and explosions. Along the way, she also watched the dramatic love stories that came with those rides unfold.

But long ago, Shirleen made her choice. It affected who she was and would always be. She decided to settle for what she had and not want more. She had good friends. She was raising two fine young men who weren’t hers, but she loved them anyway.

She was good.

And then Moses Richardson crashed into her life, literally… and deliberately.

Moses has different ideas about Shirleen. He’s more interested in the Shirleen of now, mostly because she’s interesting. And funny. And loyal. Smart. Beautiful.

But Moses has a big challenge on his hands.

He has to convince Shirleen of all that.

And then convince her she deserves to have more. 

OH man I so wanted this book to be longer by a long shot. Still a great novella you just want to keep going and going.

Shirleen always the feisty bad-ass woman. You learn so much more about what her character and Darius went through in their past of crime and drug dealing.

Moses oh man he is full of surprises and full of yummy. The ending of this book really leaves it open to another possibly story for Roam. eek love that kid.

REVIEW:Rock Chick Revolution By Kristen Ashley


Ally Nightingale has secrets. Secrets she doesn't even share with the Rock Chicks. But two men know what she's up to. One has her back. The other has her heart, but he doesn't know it.

As Ally rewinds the last year of her life, she knows two things. One, she’s never going to get what every Rock Chick should have—her own Hot Bunch guy. And two, she’s a Nightingale through and through. She just isn’t sure what to do about that.

But as her secrets are revealed, the men in her life react. Darius Tucker, a lifelong friend, as usual takes her back. Ren Zano, the man she loves, isn’t quite so sure. The Rock Chicks, Hot Bunch and the entire gang at Fortnum’s weigh in, and a Rock Chick Revolution starts brewing.

It’s up to Ally to control it and prove what she knows down to her bones.

She’s a Rock Chick, she deserves her hot guy and she’s going to keep the one she wants…

Because she’s a Nightingale. 


I'm not gonna lie through the rest of the books Ally was not one of my favorite characters. But I have changed my mind completely with her bad-ass attitude during this book.

 She finds Ren whom I have always been intrigued by his character and love him even more in this book. Such an amazing character.

 In her hope to do what she loves most she has to face off against her brothers her bf and her entire rock chick family and possibly lose them because she is a female that wants to be a P.I. like her brother and kick ass like she already does on a daily basis.

 Now she starts with Ren as FWB and things happen and she closes herself off to more with him to guard her heart for an entire year of them fighting and making up but nobody in their lives even knows about it.

This is one of the longer books and I love it. This is an amazing story and really helps close things up with almost every character.

The fact books start being written about the characters is hilariously funny. A great little twist that Kristen Ashley added in there.

REVIEW:Rock Chick Regret (Rock Chick #7) by Kristen Ashley


Sadie Townsend is known by all as The Ice Princess and she’s worked hard to earn her reputation. Her father, a now-incarcerated Drug Lord, has kept her under his thumb her whole life and she’s learned enough from living in his world to give everyone the cold shoulder. But one inebriated night, she shows the Real Sadie to the undercover agent she knows is investigating her father, the handsome Hector Chavez, and he knows he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

Hector makes one (huge) mistake; he waits for Sadie to come to him. Tragedy strikes and Sadie’s got a choice, she can retreat behind her Ice Fortress or she can embrace the Rock Chick/Hot Bunch World. Guided by Hector, the Rock Chicks, the Hot Bunch and her new gay roommates, Buddy and Ralphie, Sadie negotiates a life out from under her father’s thumb, a life that includes poison, arson and learning how to make s’mores.

Oh man Hector Oh My God Chavez is something else for sure. I loved Eddie when I read about him and Jet but man Hector is so feisty and commanding, oh man its just amazing. This is definitely a must read in the Rock Chick Series.

Sadie has such a heart wrenching story. The more you learn about her and what she has gone through the more this book will bring tears to your eyes. I definitely cried while reading this book.

Kristen Ashley brings the trauma and abuse the rock chicks deal with to a more extreme kick in the gut turn of events in this book. I love it but also hate what happens to Sadie at the same time.

She is such a rock having dealt with a criminal father all her life. The way she sees herself and how she has to protect herself from everyone and Hector especially is amazing. I just love Sadie.

By far one of the best love stories so far in the series in my opinion.

REVIEW:Rock Chick Reckoning (#6) By Kristen Ashley


Rock Chick Reckoning By Kristen Ashley (#6)

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.


Oh man this was another great book in the Rock Chick series. This one was a lot different, It doesn't just have the main female lead in danger it has them all in danger and the hot bunch boys trying to protect everyone and do the right thing.

The author definitely stepped up the action in this book for sure.

Mace is just wow a fascinating character and his history and past with his family has definitely effect him and his personal life in massive impacts.

Stella was with Mace for 9 months and adored and fell for him and then he just up and left and broke her heart. She put up so many walls after and to deal with her family past and the abuse she went through. Man i feel for this girl, its all so much to handle.

Their love story is amazing and them opening up to each-other about their individual trauma and why they have done what they have done to each-other.

Such a crazy ride for sure. But I just love this one the author wrote in chapters for some of the other Rock Chick's point of views and it was amazing.

Cant wait to read the next novel in this series eek.
