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.

I really had high hopes for this book after so enjoying the first. However disappointment ensued after realising that this is an almost replica of the first book; the focus relationship is nearly identical along with the sequence of events. The sex scenes are superfluous and awkward, and I could not get to grips with the main character referring to her lady part as a 'doo dah' (a term normally reserved for the package your pet dog deposits while out on a walk).
The performance is wonderful and I really enjoy Susannah's voice (maybe not so much whilst uttering the term doo dah!) but I am left wondering I want to continue with this series. *spoiler alert* Will they all be the same formulaic 'boy meets girl, girl needs help, boy protects girl from bad guys, freakishly hot guy falls for low self esteem girl and pursues in controlling manner'.
I love the Rock Chick series and have read them all on Kindle and decided to download them to enjoy in the car and the office. I found Jet high irritating when I read the book but the audible version just made me want to shoot her. She is a whining, whinging, completely clueless and selfish person. She has no idea and has the mental fortitude of a 5 year old. Of all the rock chick books this woman is no rock chick more road kill!
"NOT ASHLEY'S BEST"
I really hate writing poor reviews, especially for an author that I will forever be a fangirl for! This series may not be for me. I enjoyed the first book, but right from the start of RESCUE I wasn't drawn in; the narration was not working for me, nor the main character's personalities. Some of the humor was predictable and slap stick, the sexy scenes were lukewarm at best, and the overall storyline just--lacked. She's definitely produced better. All that said, I am going in for book 3 because of course, Kristen Ashley is still one of my favorite authors hands down!
"too many eeks uh ohs and du das"
i love the characters, the series but it was very hard to listen to "eeks, uh ohs and du das" i mean really, who says that? hoping the next book is better
"a bit of the same"
loved this and the first... but this one was a bit of the same... I'm seeing a pattern... hot girl who has low self-esteem, gets into trouble and hot guy who likes her rescues her... and she doesn't listen/tries to rescue herself/gets into more trouble and ends up handcuffed to something...
I think if the writing weren't so freakin funny I'd have bailed by now, but I'm thinkin I might just go ahead and read the next one!
also, everyone has flip phones... hahaha!
"Could Have Been Much Better"
What on earth were the writer and editor thinking to have so many "eeks" throughout the book? They were everywhere; any word overused is just lazy redundancy, but this non-stop non-word was simply irritating. It all but ruined any chance the book had for being enjoyed, as well as ruining any chance that the main character had for being likable. That this was a word she used constantly made her seem weak, weird and annoying. Such a shame no one had the good sense to cut the draft by about 70 eeks. There were other problems with the narrative and main character, but it isn't possible to judge the whole fairly in the face of this literary equivalent to finger nails on a chalkboard.
I am in full agreement with the reviewer "Judi of Vancouver!" If the word eek or the word shish hadn't been thrown at this listener so many times. This book might not have been so bad. But good grief I almost wanted to pull my hair out from them being repeated so many times. If this had been the first book I bought by this author it would have been the last. Due to the amount of action she keeps pulling me back to her books. I could do with 1/2 of the sex scenes but can deal with them by pulling the ear plugs out until there is something worth while to listen to again.
my friend recommended this and I've been very entertained. it's fun to read the series that kind of has a rhythm to it. you really get into it even though it may be completely unbelievable.... I love fiction!
"I love this series"
First let's see oh right what was wrong with jet she gives the blonds in this world a bad rap. She didn't listen to anything anyone ever said to her. She constantly gets in trouble which could have easily been avoided if she listened hence the word listen. Eddie told her often enough how he felt about her and over her ditzy blond head it went. Otherwise the story was just as good as her other books love it .
"Alpha men, headstrong women and hilarious story"
With each book that I have read and/or listened to in this series just got better! This book is at the top of my list.
I don't know of another book to compare this one too unless maybe it was Kristen Ashley's Motorcycle Man series or her Unfinished Heroes series. They both have strong, alpha men, headstrong women, romance, and lots of comedy in them.
Susannah Jones' voice and the tone she used really brought out the hilarity in these audio books. She is the best narrator I have heard yet! I really hope she narrates more of Kristen Ashley's books and other similar authors.
There were lots of moving moments in this book! I cried and laughed all the way through them. Kristen Ashley really knows how to write a good romance book with comedy and Susannah Jones read it perfectly!
"I must be crazy"
For finishing this. the story is pretty good but Jet is such a moron. There's not enough character building to justify her behaviors and stupidity.
"Not as good as the 1st."
This was good, but I liked book one more. I will get book 3 at some point, but for now I have other books that I want more. Still, I like that I have a series to go back to.
