From New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Ashley, comes the long-awaited story of Daisy and Marcus, Rock Chick Reawakening. A prequel to Kristen's Rock Chick series, Rock Chick Reawakening shares the tale of the devastating event that nearly broke Daisy, an even that set Marcus Sloane--one of Denver's most respected businessmen and one of the Denver underground's most feared crime bosses--into finally making his move to win the heart of the woman who stole his.
Oh my heart! Just when I don't know how my heart can contain any more love for this series, KA delivers Daisy and Marcus' story. Honestly, I knew I wouldn't be disappointed but I couldn't have imagined how beautiful their story would be.
I think that this story really works, especially being a novella, because I knew Daisy so well already. The addition of her back story was cake. I also knew Marcus but getting to know him better, seeing him woo Daisy...wow! But more than wooing, witnessing how Marcus handles Daisy after a traumatic event (one in which KA conveys how it affected Daisy without giving us a front row seat) - and even in simply getting to know her better - his patience, compassion, and care - it's easy to see why she fell for him. I fell as well.
And that ending. *sniff* I think I may have cried more over this novella than any of the full length Rock Chick stories because Daisy and Marcus both survived a lot - particularly Daisy. So it was extra touching seeing how Marcus won his woman - how Daisy found her prince.
KA couldn't have done it any better!
