Rock Chick Reawakening by Kristen Ashley, a 1001 Dark Nights novella @KristenAshley68 @InkSlingerPR



5 Honey bunches of love stars

Daisy and Marcus’ romance was nothing short of brilliant. Comprende?
One 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.

As 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.

I wanted all of them.

I 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. 


Daisy’s 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 her mind.
I 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.

As 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.
Mysterious, 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 epilogueEpic!  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.
