Rock Chicks (Rescue) - Kristen Ashley

Book Blurb:
Jet McAlister has a secret. Eddie Chavez has the hots for Jet (not to mention, Eddie's just, plain hot). Jet has too many problems to realize that Eddie's interested. Eddie loses patience when Jet ends her waitressing shift at a strip club with a knife at her throat. Since Eddie's a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet's used to solving everyone's problems, she doesn't want Eddie's help.

Throw in a Dolly Parton look-alike, a gruff but lovable strip club owner, Jet's ne'er-do-well father, his ne'er-do-well friend, Bear, Bear's long-suffering, chain-smoking wife Lavonne and the crew from Rock Chick and you've got Rock Chick Rescue.

Rock Chick Rescue takes you on a wild ride with Jet, Eddie and the gang as they wrestle bad guys in a bagel shop, hit Denver's backstreet poker tables (with big hair), and help the strippers at Smithie's take down a would-be murderer.

Through this, Jet's got to learn that, even when life made you give up your dreams, you can still end up with the (hot) guy. Eddie's got to rescue Jet from a bad man (so he can do better things with her) and teach her that some dreams can come true.

In My Own Words:
Jet has a lot on her plate already.  A mother that is recovering from a stroke, and all of the troubles that go along with that.  What she doesn't need is more to deal with.  When her father blows in to town, trouble is exactly what she gets.  Eddie has been checking Jet out for several months now, only she is to busy dealing with her own issues to even notice.  When the heat is turned up on the danger, Eddie thinks he is the only one that can keep her safe.  Being claimed by Eddie, means she is also brought in to the Rock Chick group, and thus giving Jet something else to deal with...friends.

Notable Quote:
"Chiquita, if you tell me it's none of my business, I swear to God, I'll shoot you."

I find that I love this series more and more as it goes on.  Eddie and Jet's chemistry is electric, even if she tries to deny it for most of the story.  Watching her cave and accept him, plus accept the friendships that are offered to her was quite amusing.  Of course, as always, the secondary cast was also wonderfully entertaining.  I am in love with the friendships that are formed in the Rock Chick family, and also the bonds that Lee's boys have with each of the "pains in the ass".  Smithie was a new one for me, I wasn't sure how to take him, but he ended up on of my favorites of the book.  You have it all in this one, a little suspense, mean sharks after the little prey, hot macho guys, storybook friendships and a love story that was fun to read.  So many parts of this book I felt like I was in the room watching the action, great writing.
