5 Honey bunches of love stars
Daisy and Marcus’ romance was nothing
short of brilliant. Comprende?
of my most anticipated releases, this eloquently written novella is not only Kristen
Ashley at her very finest but also absolute proof that she truly adores her
fans. Reawakening is a gift to all
the Rock Chicks out there who yearned for this couple’s journey. For new
readers, it’s a great introduction into the fantastical world of KA. Be prepared,
this emotional story will pull on your heartstrings and have you swooning. From
the prologue to the very last word, I was a blubbering mess crying both happy
and sorrowful tears. It surpassed everything I could have possibly hoped and
dreamed for these beloved characters.
secondary characters and an already established couple in the Rock Chick and
Unfinished Heroes Series, I was constantly teased with bits and pieces of Daisy
and Marcus’ relationship. But being the greedy little reader that I am, I’ve
always ached for more.
wanted all of them.
craved their beginnings to discover the reasons why they chose certain paths in
life. I needed to own a piece of their future, hopeful to see more of a
‘happily ever after’. I wanted to experience all the beauty and pain that led
this sweet, kindhearted former stripper to fall into the life and heart of one
of Denver’s most notorious mobsters. And after years of longing, I thankfully got
my wish. It was pure bliss stepping into Daisy and Marcus' lives, falling in
love with their characters all over again.
like the best friend every woman needs whose radiant personality brightens even
the cloudiest of days. Larger-than-life and The
Ultimate Rock Chick, I’ve been in love with all things Daisy and her tinkling-bell
giggle ever since she exploded onto the scene in RC Rescue. A woman who speaks her mind and has a unique sense of
style, her sassy attitude and bubbly persona never failed to make me giggle. However,
it is here where her character broke me. With a past filled with sorrow and
undeserved mistreatment, her only escape to find peace was to build castles in
had the feeling Daisy’s backstory would be emotional. But seeing the cruelness
she survived totally shattered me.
Nevertheless, all the ugliness served only to
strengthen her character into the gracious woman I admire. She embodies
everything I downright idolize when it comes to KA’s heroines ~ Daisy’s a steel
magnolia, possessing the will to persevere, regardless of the circumstances. She’s
a remarkable woman worthy of the affections from her very own prince charming ~
the handsome and classy Marcus Sloan.
much as I enjoyed seeing Daisy’s character blossom, it was Marcus who stole the
show and my heart during this read. When it comes to leading men, Kristen
Ashley wears the crown as my “Queen of all Alphas”. There’s just something
magical about each one that touches me so deeply. The Marcus I met in Reawakening is in a class of his own and
has become one of my all-time favorite heroes.
dark, edgy, and a crime boss who’s feared, Marcus is an anti-hero. Seeing all
the heartaches from his childhood I finally understood the shrewd man he needed
to be. But is was through his love for Daisy that I saw into his beautiful soul
and fell hard for the true gentleman beneath the exquisite three-piece suits. His
limitless patience and dedication to Daisy, his unyielding determination to
break through her walls, his fierce protectiveness and his tender passionate
ways…the reasons why I adore him are immeasurable. In Marcus, KA created my
vision of the perfect dream man.
Rock Chick Reawakening
was an amazingly poignant read. Soul crushing, inspirational, filled with
passion and oodles of laughs, this novella, which was a whole lot of story,
will make your heart burst. And the epilogue…Epic!All I can say is so many tears of joy were
shed ~ I was out of control. A glorious ending that ties into the Rock Chick
Series magnificently. A great big heartfelt thank you to Kristen for giving
Daisy and Marcus such a wonderful story that will stay with me forever.

Message from Kristen
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!

About Kristen Ashley:
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. Nothing’s changed. 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.
