From New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Ashley, comes the long-awaited story of Daisy and Marcus, Rock Chick Reawakening. A prequel to Kristen’s Rock Chick series, Rock Chick Reawakening shares the tale of the devastating event that nearly broke Daisy, an event that set Marcus Sloane—one of Denver’s most respected businessmen and one of the Denver underground’s most feared crime bosses—into finally making his move to win the heart of the woman who stole his.
I was so excited when I heard Kristen Ashley was writing Daisy and Marcus’s story in Rock Chick Reawakening (Rock Chick 0.5). I had always adored Daisy she was one of those larger than life characters with such a lovely disposition, which left a great impression on everyone she met. She was someone that I would love to have as a friend and I loved her relationship with the other Rock Chicks.
I knew Marcus was a respected businessman and a feared crime boss, but he was still a bit of an enigma. I was eager to learn more about the man who was Daisy’s world and had her heart. I had faith in Daisy, and I knew if she loved him then there had to be more to him.
“Marcus Slone, my man, the man every step of my lift had been leading me too.”
“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 you.”
I’m not going to say much about the storyline, as I don’t want to give away any spoilers to my fellow KA fans. All I will say is KA’s writing is flawless, and Daisy and Marcus’s story has it all. It was emotional, heartwarming, funny, sexy, beautiful and of course, appearances from the Hot Bunch and the Rock Chicks added to its perfection.
I didn’t think I could love Daisy’s anymore, but my heart went out to her after learning about her past and how it shaped her future. As for Marcus, we find out about his background and how that made him the man he is. I can’t tell you how much I love that man for all he did to make Daisy’s happy. He was the perfect gentleman, her prince charming who was kind, attentive, generous, fiercely protective, and loved her with everything.
“He made my heart warm right up in a way I knew sure as certain it would never again be cold.”
“You live in the light. I’ll never put you in the dark.”
With Rock Reawakening being a novella, and knowing how long KA stories can be, I did wonder for about a second if we would still get the full KA charm. Well, let me tell you KA doesn’t disappoint, the storyline never felt rushed, and it’s full to bursting with KA magic.
I could go on forever about this one, but to sum it up Rock Chick Reawakening my last read of 2016 was pure perfection and as for that epilogue oh my! It brought tears to my eyes I loved it! It was simply perfect! KA knew she just knew what we had always wanted for Daisy and she gave it to us. I’m going to confess just thinking about it now is making me emotional, that is how much it got to me.
I don’t usually give novella five stars, but Daisy’s and Marcus’s story is getting five stars as anything less would be scandalous. So just in case you didn’t get it Rock Chick Reawakening is pure perfection, and you need to one click this one now!

Her face was stunning. Wide smile. White teeth and a good deal of them. Big eyes. Elegant nose. Soft cheekbones. All of this she highlighted with the expert use of makeup from what was clearly a gift of superior genes into something that shone like a Hollywood starlet.
A starlet of a stripper who looked a good deal like Dolly Parton, who also likely got home the night before, earliest, three in the morning, and was right then, only hours later, back on the stage helping another girl by teaching her some moves.
“Marcus, brother,” Smithie’s voice came at him. “You got a problem with the way I do business, and I give you reason to have that problem, then we have a talk. I don’t give you that reason, we don’t have conversations like this one. That’s our deal.”
Marcus listened to him while he watched Daisy talking to the other girl and then she ran across the stage, doing it gracefully in platform sandals, her stone-washed jeans tight on her ass and hips and all the way down her legs. Still, after she ran the four steps, she launched herself high, grabbing on to the pole at least three feet higher than she was, her body swinging around by just her hands.
When the swing ended, she climbed up the pole, hand over hand. Doing this quickly, taking herself up another four feet, she flipped her bottom half over, wrapping her skinny legs around the pole. She dropped back, her hair flowing down, and with her only hold on the pole being her legs, she arched her back and slid down slowly, somehow circling the pole as she did it.
She ended this doing a layout with her hands on the floor, her legs in slow and controlled movements coming over her head one after the other. Her hands pushing off, she was up.
Standing straight with perfect posture.
A Message from Kristen:
I’m beside myself with glee that this prequel to my Rock Chick series has been unleashed! There was some time when I never thought I’d write it. When I couldn’t be in that terrible place with Daisy. But I’m oh-so glad that she called to me, demanding her story be told so she could give it to me and now I can give it to you! I loved every moment spent with Daisy and Marcus. And I hope you do too!
Praise for Kristen Ashley and ROCK CHICK REAWAKENING:
“OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FREAKING LOVED IT!!!!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!! This was pure Old School Vintage KA GOLD!!!”
“This novella is like the key to all the locked doors in this series.”
“We inhaled Marcus and Daisy’s story, how could we not. It was everything to us and we cannot thank Kristen Ashley enough for writing it, in her much loved unique manner. The queen of epilogues struck once more and we smiled through copious tears of happiness, our hearts feeling full and complete. Whilst sad that it’s over we just can’t feel anything but happiness and love right now. It was Aces! Rock on…and be prepared to be swept of off your feet.”
“[Kristen] Ashley captivates.”
“There is something about them [Ashley’s books] that I find crackalicious.”

“I felt all of the rushes, the adrenaline surges, the anger spikes… my heart pumping in fury. My eyes tearing up when my heart (I mean… her heart) would break.”
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
