Rock Chick, Book 4
Synopsis: Jules has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance has made it his mission that Jules won’t get dead while dishing out vigilante justice. Jules doesn’t have time for romance, she’s too busy saving the world and she enlists Zip (the gunstore owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help.
The Rock Chicks of Fortnum’s Bookstore get involved to provide romantic advice and guidance, none of which Jules accepts at first. The Hot Bunch of Nightingale Investigations adopt Jules as one of their own. Even though Jules tries to hang on to her inner Head Crackin’ Mamma Jamma, the Rock Chicks; Hot Bunch; Jules’s long-suffering Uncle Nick; Jules’s friend the rotund, African-American, Jackie-O wannabe, May; and especially Vance will stop at nothing to wear her down.
But Jules makes some bad guys pretty angry and one is dedicated to taking her out. Vance and the Hot Bunch have to pull out all the stops to keep her alive. At the same time, Jules and Vance learn the true meaning of home but once they find this precious entity they’ve been searching for all their lives, will Jules’s enemies tear it away?
Review: I always have a great time with this series and I was happy to get into this brand new volume.
I’m having a little reading breakdown at the moment, so it took me a little while to finish the story, but as usual it was a very good novel and I’m delighted to have discovered the story of Vance and Jules.
Jules is a young woman in search of revenge since she found one of the boys she cared for and loved very much, died of an overdose. To get revenge, she decides to go after the drug dealers in Denver, but this hobby also attracts the attention of people for whom she should have remained anonymous. She becomes the target. Luckily for her, the Nightingale firm, including Vance, takes an interest in her and tries to protect her as best he can. Besides, he is determined to have more and to make our pretty Jules realize that she can’t live without him.
Jules’ life, which has always been very lonely, will change completely in this story and it won’t be easy for her to manage. Yes, because there is Vance who is quite imposing, but also the whole crew who will be there, whether she wants it or not.
I thought the whole thing was really nice, even if I have to say that I was a little bit annoyed by the number of unprotected sex scene in the book. That aside, I had a really good time and I’m very curious to read the story of Luke and Ava.
