Rock Chick - Kristen Ashley

Book Blurb:
Indy’s a former wild child (okay, maybe not so “former”) and now used bookstore owner. Lee’s a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will NOT mind their own business, a few stun guns and a bag of diamonds and mix it up with some shootings, a high speed chase and car bombs exploding and you’re on the first Rock Chick wild ride.

In My Own Words:
Indy is living her life by Indy's standards.  Sometimes that includes rock concerts, sometimes it includes disobeying direct orders, and sometimes it includes missing diamonds and people shooting at her.  When the heat was turned up and a gun pulled on her, her best friend set her up to sleep at her brother's house while he was out of town.  Unfortunately, he didn't get the memo that he was supposed to be out of town.  When he comes home to find goldilocks in his bed, and a stranger on his couch, some explaining needs to happen....and fast.

Lee was the love of Indy's life and since she was 5 she had done everything possible to catch his attention.  But 10 years ago, Lee said the words that cut through her core and had her avoiding him at all costs. "I think of you like a sister." Now 10 years later, she is in need of his certain expertise but isn't willing to admit it to herself let alone him.

Notable Quote:
..."Your grandmother used to say that you were two souls separated in heaven.  She mainly meant you were both trouble and deserved each other."

This book had everything.  There was mystery as to who actually has the diamonds.  There was a love lost story, she had loved him for so many years, and he just pushed her away.  You had drag queens and rock and roll.  There was cars exploding and people getting shot, blown up and handcuffed.  And finally a creepy stalker mob guy that won't catch a clue.  I loved this story.  There was action and adventure and a great love story all wrapped up in one little pink package.
