Her face was stunning. Wide smile. White teeth and a good deal of them. Big eyes. Elegant nose. Soft cheekbones. All of this she highlighted with the expert use of makeup from what was clearly a gift of superior genes into something that shone like a Hollywood starlet.
A starlet of a stripper who looked a good deal like Dolly Parton, who also likely got home the night before, earliest, three in the morning, and was right then, only hours later, back on the stage helping another girl by teaching her some moves.
“Marcus, brother,” Smithie’s voice came at him. “You got a problem with the way I do business, and I give you reason to have that problem, then we have a talk. I don’t give you that reason, we don’t have conversations like this one. That’s our deal.”
Marcus listened to him while he watched Daisy talking to the other girl and then she ran across the stage, doing it gracefully in platform sandals, her stone-washed jeans tight on her ass and hips and all the way down her legs. Still, after she ran the four steps, she launched herself high, grabbing on to the pole at least three feet higher than she was, her body swinging around by just her hands.
When the swing ended, she climbed up the pole, hand over hand. Doing this quickly, taking herself up another four feet, she flipped her bottom half over, wrapping her skinny legs around the pole. She dropped back, her hair flowing down, and with her only hold on the pole being her legs, she arched her back and slid down slowly, somehow circling the pole as she did it.
She ended this doing a layout with her hands on the floor, her legs in slow and controlled movements coming over her head one after the other. Her hands pushing off, she was up.
Standing straight with perfect posture.
The queen has done it again folks, she has given us gold. Just pure freaking gold. Vintage, old school Kristen Ashley at its finest- right in these pages.
Daisy and Marcus are a story like no other. One full of more pain and heartache than most- full of love and redemption, hope and faith, showing that true love- soul deep, all consuming love- overcomes EVERY obstacle.
We all knew that Daisy's story was going to be a tough one to finally read. After seeing bits and pieces of it in the former Rock Chick books, it was painfully obvious that our favorite Southern Belle led a life that would fell even the strongest oak. But, we also knew that Daisy wasn't just any old oak. She's a Southern Oak. Strong and true- standing tall, and able to withstand even the toughest winds. Our girl overcame some of the ugliest things imaginable. But through it all, she had Marcus at her back. The man was there, standing in the shadows, quietly waiting for the time to make Daisy see that no matter how ugly her life had been before, he was ready to make it beautiful.
Regardless of what side of the law Marcus Sloan stood on, he is absolutely one of the Hot Bunch, because the man is pure alpha, and sexier than sin. He is willing to do anything to protect what his- just like every other Hot Bunch man. They all skate on the edges of right and wrong when it comes to the ones they love, and in Marcus's case- that's Daisy.
Now, let's talk about the epilogue. We all know that KA is the absolute be all, end all QUEEN, when it comes to epilogues. And this one, has to have been the most beautiful of all. Something that we never thought possible for this beautiful couple, well, KA makes it possible. Let's just leave it at that. The tears, the joy- oh god, the freaking feels. Everything. This epilogue is EVERYTHING. This book is EVERYTHING.
If you have been wanting even a little bit of Daisy and Marcus, please don't wait to get this book! It cannot be missed out on. You will kick your own tail if you do. It is SO good. Just SO, SO good.
5 big ole glorious stars!!!!!

A Message from Kristen:
I’m beside myself with glee that this prequel to my Rock Chick series has been unleashed! There was some time when I never thought I’d write it. When I couldn’t be in that terrible place with Daisy. But I’m oh-so glad that she called to me, demanding her story be told so she could give it to me and now I can give it to you! I loved every moment spent with Daisy and Marcus. And I hope you do too!

About Kristen Ashley: Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning. Nothing's changed. Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
