Jules has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance has made it his mission that Jules won’t get dead while dishing out vigilante justice. Jules doesn’t have time for romance, she’s too busy saving the world and she enlists Zip (the gun store owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help.
The Rock Chicks of Fortnum’s Bookstore get involved to provide romantic advice and guidance, none of which Jules accepts at first. The Hot Bunch of Nightingale Investigations adopt Jules as one of their own. Even though Jules tries to hang on to her inner Head Crackin’ Mamma Jamma, the Rock Chicks; Hot Bunch; Jules’s long-suffering Uncle Nick; Jules’s friend the rotund, African-American, Jackie-O wannabe, May; and especially Vance will stop at nothing to wear her down.
But Jules makes some bad guys pretty angry and one is dedicated to taking her out. Vance and the Hot Bunch have to pull out all the stops to keep her alive. At the same time, Jules and Vance learn the true meaning of home but once they find this precious entity they’ve been searching for all their lives, will Jules’s enemies tear it away?

Title: Rock Chick Renegade
Series: Rock Chick #4
Author: Kristen Ashley
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense
Published: March 14, 2011
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Rock Chick Renegade drew me in from the first page years ago, and I return to this world at least once a year because the stories, the people matter to me as a reader and I like them so why not come back again and again. Jules’ and Vance’s story is so intense, yet filled with banter, laughter, definitely sexy times, friendships (old and new) and two people who complete each other in so many ways, two people who become “home” to each other in spite of their sorta arguments and Jules’ stubbornness.
What you really need to know before picking up Rock Chick Renegade is in the Cover Description. What you’ll feel while living Vance and Jules’ story with them is intense, dangerous, sexy, emotional, funny and charming all rolled up into one huge ball of “damn I love this book”. If you haven’t read anything in this series I’d encourage you to give the first story a try (and because relationships build I’d read in order) – I think you’ll find a world that you’ll want to know more about — and some damned good stories as well.
Every time I re-read a title from the Rock Chick series I’m convinced that “this” story is my favorite of all time — until I pick up the next book, and rinse and repeat my beliefs. I don’t think the Rock Chick universe can be explained, I think you simply have to experience it and then you’ll “get it” until then you’ll really have no clue how these stories can be funny and sexy, heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time, how these people will become as real as your best friend in no time at all. And how you’ll return to this world, countless times, because this place is “home” to people you’d be proud to call family. It’s unexplainable but the connection I’ve always felt to this world is very real – so, I’ll keep coming back to visit, when I need to escape my reality when I need a good laugh or a good cry I know I’ll be among friends.
