Indy Savage, cop's daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy's employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicating matters, Lee has decided he's interested, Indy's decided she's not. But she can't seem to keep Lee out of her life when she's repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she's finding dead bodies).
Indy's best bet is to solve the mystery of the diamonds before Lee. Lee's challenge is to keep Indy alive and, at the same time, win back her heart.
Holy cow where to start with this one?!?!?!? I have always been a Kristen Ashley fan but for some reason I always put off reading the Rock Chick series. No I don't have a brain tumor or anything, I have no explanation for my idiocy! To put it short and sweet like, I loved this book.
Indy is officially my favorite female character of all time. No one does it like a Rock Chick! :) There was some backstory at the beginning that I was really glad was there. INdy's narative helped us readers catch up to where she is in life and where she isn't with Lee. :( Indy is a no nonsense type of woman who does not take sh*t from anyone. She speaks her mind, rocks out in killer clothes, and lives life like she wants to. And I was very very glad she decided to sleep in Lee's bed that night. :)
Lee is the ultimate book boyfriend. He has his own private investigation business, or whatever it is he does (as he can be kind of scary with his knowledge and nohow sometimes) and Indy has landed smack dab in the middle of the situation with his latest client. Lee decides that he has waited enough for Indy and decides to make her his own. Indy isn't too sure about this but Lee obviously has his ways of convincing her. :)
I loved all of the shinanigans that Indy and Ally get into. Between car bombs and kidnappings, there is not one dull moment in this book! I know it might have come out a while ago but I would recommend this book to everyone looking for a good laugh and lots of adventure!!!
My Rating: 5 Stars!

About the Author:
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She 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 accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of 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 up, it keeps getting better
