I love these amazing stories and I am looking forward to the next story told in this series. I resisted wanting to listen to this series thinking that fantasy was not going to hold my interest but I was very wrong and instead found myself engrossed in all the characters as well as the stories. Bravo! Truly an awesome storyteller. Thank you. Toni R.

As a Rock Chick, Shirleen Jackson lived through all the kidnappings and explosions. Along the way, she also watched the dramatic love stories that came with those rides unfold. But long ago, Shirleen made her choice. It affected who she was and would always be. She decided to settle for what she had and not want more. She had good friends. She was raising two fine young men who weren't hers, but she loved them anyway. She was good. And then Moses Richardson crashed into her life, literally...and deliberately.

I loved Shirlene's story so much I only wished there was more. I felt that she was deserving of more even though she was a supporting character. TLR

Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

I personally loved listening to this book. I laughed the whole way through even though the main character was annoying and ditzy I know some gals like that so I could relate. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was definitely entertaining. I'll listen to this book again when I need to smile and LMAO.

Thank you. T Richards

Deacon has an ugly history, a history that broke him, leaving him a ghost of a man. Out of necessity he left the normal world to descend into the criminal world and found he fit. So he stayed. Cold as ice and living off the grid, Deacon has no intention to connect, not with anyone. Then he returns to some remote cabins in the Colorado Mountains and finds they have new owners. One of them is Cassidy Swallow, a young woman willing to work hard to live her quiet dream in a house by a river surrounded by aspen and pine.

I loved the story and the humour used throughout the story which lightened the scariness of the subject matter. Although I enjoyed the story I felt it incomplete or because it didn’t kill the demon and it seemed to me this was supposed to be the end and final showdown. I also hoped that the suggestion of love being the key to ending it fit good would have had more to do with the confrontation at the end. I do hope there’s going to be a sequel. T Richards

This was an excellent story. It had so many twists and turns and I found myself longing for more. The only part I wished would have been better is the performance. I didn’t care much for the dialect used. I still enjoyed the audiobook very much. Thank you. Toni
