    I just about broke my finger 1-clicking this bad boy. Then I pretty much broke my personal best time speed reading it (lol). It is NO secret the ROCK CHICK series is pretty much my favorite series EVER. I have reread every book (except Ally's) a gazzilion times. So when I saw that KA had written a happily ever after for Shirleen...well let us just say I was SO there.So did I enjoy it? Yes. Will I reread it? Probably not. That said, it was undoubt...

    4 stars!Shirleen Jackson is one of the Rock Chick characters I always loved, but never thought she would get her own book. KA surprised us all, and here it is! Rock Chick Reborn was a great addition to the series. Shirleen is one hell of a woman, and her story was wonderful! I wanted a badass. I wanted to be adored, beloved, worshipped by a good man who saw nothing but good in me. I’d wanted that for as long as I could remember. And it wasn’...

    I thought, what the hell, I've read the whole series. Let's see how badass Shirleen gets her happy ending.But, alas, I forgot about how much Kristen Ashley can drive me insane.Shirleen suddenly was NOT a badass anymore. She was a wimp with low self-esteem who actually whispered when she talked!! Not that! Anything but that! One of my most hated of all things KA has her heroines do!Then, the story was not really a story, but 250 pages of two peopl...

    Who are you and what have you done with Shirleen? That's what was going through my head on a loop whilst reading this. Then .... cue Lee and the Hot Bunch worrying about colour coordinated planners and stickers and I REALLY wanted to know who the hell they were and what they did with the badasses of old. It's like they all had to morph into someone else for Shirleen to find her happy. What??Add to that poor Moses and Shirleen were totally short ...

    You don't have to be a badass 24/7...I loved Reborn. This was a sweet little treat that left me completely satisfied. Yes, I would have been happier with more but considering Kristen Ashley wasn't originally planning to give us anything, I'll take what I can get.It was fantastic to get this last chance to catch up with friends and meet some new ones. The characters seem real and their individuality shone through. I can picture Tod stomping into t...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 Oowee Stars!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐I didn't even realize that KA was releasing this book so soon until Nita aka The Bookchick enlightened me (thank you Nita!), within minutes I purchased the kindle version, a few hrs later when the audio was released, I purchased the audio (different narrator for this one, which was a bit disappointing, but, Nicole Small did an okay job), and my paperback should be arriving any day....to add to my KA Rock...

    This is not my favorite! Actually I was quite pissed while reading most of it, but I’m trying hard not to get on my soapbox. The couple things I did enjoy were the fact the book focuses on older main characters and Moses! Moses is such a great character and Shirleen has always been entertaining. However, I wanted more for their story. This felt thrown together and don’t even get me started on the writing and dialogue. I came very close to DNF...

    I didn’t love this. This was written in new KA style, ( which started with the first book in the chaos series, when whatever editor that publisher gave her, ruined KA style forever. If you read to the end of this book, you will see the first two chapters of Mystery Man, and can compare the writing difference. It’s glaring how bad KA’s writing has become when you read this book followed by the Mysery Man chapters. I honestly swear it’s lik...

    *** last night I hit a slump and did a brief reread of this and my favourite bits. I have some thoughts. Shirleen most definitely lost some of her uniqueness - her Shirleen spark. Am I alone with this view?! I also think the rock chick feel was dampened, still good but no wow.New thoughts over****Thank god I had this afternoon of work, it would have driven me insane to wait for this!!! I loved it, Shirleen and Moses were perfect together although...

    Oweee! Love me some Shirleen!!!I didn't even realize that KA was writing this book. For some reason I thought Marcus and Daisy was the last book in thus series. Imagine my surprise when I read KA's email that this book was out. Not even 10 seconds later I purchased. Unfortunately I had to finish another book first, but I started this one today.I'm so happy Shirleen gets her HEA with a hot, ex-military, juvenile corrections officer. Moses himself ...

    What a pleasant surprise as I did not like the Rock Chick books that I’ve readWhat I liked:- H/h were both older, in fact heroine is older by 2 yrd as she is 53 and Hero is 51- Low drama and no hijinx. The focus was on their romance and basically the Hero pursuing the hWhat I didn’t like:- the appearance of other Rock Chicks as the other women were annoyingGot a question though: of her 2 sons, Roam and Sniff, which one is black and which one ...

    2/5 starsI hate to admit this, but I might have fallen out of love with Kristen Ashley's writing style, either that or her books have just changed dramatically as of late. I was addicted to KA's books previously and have read upwards of thirty of her work, but I'm just not feeling it anymore. I didn't connect to this book much at all and I just found it emotionally dramatic and confusing. The emotional scenes where I was meant to feel strongly fo...

    Done! Review to come in a few.Okay. I lied. Review came after me sleeping, waking up, going to work...and then almost sleeping again...but my thoughts just wouldn't let me fall asleep a second time.That being said, I love that K.A. decided to release this as part of her 50th birthday gift to her fans...but I had some issues with the book..and I shall now give MY PERSONAL opinion on them.First off, major numero uno issue that I had with this book....

    First let me say I applaud KA for writing a couple that is over 50 and still getting busy. Age is just a number, after all. I feel more alive at 48 than I ever did at 28. But let me tell you why this disappointed me. Yes, I know Shirleen and Moses were black. That didn't matter to me. Some of my best friends are black. And asian. And east asian. What bothered me is that KA made race a part of the story. She writes Shirleen as a very likeable char...

    2 1/2Mostly, disappointing even if sweet. You expected (wished?) more for Shirleen rather than this half assed story that mixed a little bit of all. She deserved a story, I think.The Hot Bunch getting into her life seemed so weird, the girls yes. The guys I did really expect something different. Weird. Honestly the meta author narrative is really over the top. It was excessive the first time it came around and being reminded about I still think i...

    First off I’m going to thank Kristen Ashley for writing a couple over the age of 50; I applaud you woman! On that note, if you are expecting a typical Rock Chick book, this isn’t the book for you but if you appreciate a sweet romance between two people who both deserve a second chance at finding love then you are in luck. Readers of this series have always loved Shirleen Jackson as they watched her go from drug dealing, illegal gambling wrong...

    I could take or leave the Rock Chick series...there were only a few books I enjoyed. I wasn't much of a fan of Shirleen in these novels as she reminded me of the equally annoying Elvira in another KA series.This was Novella length but I quickly became bored. All of the Rock Chick books are insta love which is not my favourite thing but in this book Shirleen and Moses meet in a Supermarket and he comes on heavy almost as if they're getting married...

    Rock Chick Reborn blew my mind! Not only did I finally get Shirleen's story, I got a truly mature couple, and I loved every single word of it!

    A must read for fans of the series as Shirleen gets her happily ever after and we get to see the gang in action.This is a very inside, gift to the fans kind of book but it does a good job looking at redemption and there is a hard look at what makes marriages fail as well as the linger impact of an abusive relationship.I enjoyed all the characters and the phone dates.A nice close to the series.

    Rock Chick Reborn by Kristen Ashley Contemporary Romance. Can Stand Alone, but I think you should read the series first. BEST SURPRISE EVER!!!!! Kristen Ashley and I are now both 50, and one of the things I love about her writing is the fact that she writes older women beautifully. Shirleen Jackson is the wise, street-savvy 53 year old black woman who got out of a life of crime, redeemed herself fully, and now she is the receptionist for Nightin...

    OOWWEEE!Shirleen got her HEA!!! Moses crashed into Shirleen, quite literally, to get her attention. Sometimes there are small scenes in books that just stay with me. It might be a first kiss, or it might be something funny, sometimes its as simple as a supermarket staredown. This book has that unforgettable meeting, the kind you will think about. I love this.If you have never read a Kristen Ashley book...First...what planet have you been on!Secon...

    Although in more recent years I haven't enjoyed Kristen Ashley's books as much I did previously, I still absolutely adore her Rock Chick series. So, it was a fantastic surprise to have Shirleen's story told in Rock Chick Reborn, she certainly deserves her own HEA. I loved every word of this novella, not only was it a sweet romance with a hint of redemption, you also got to revisit some of your favourite Rock Chicks and Hot Bunch characters. We al...

    3.5 stars.The Good.-Shirleen has always been a secondary character for me, so I wasn't expecting a romance for her, to be honest. I liked that KA delved a bit into her history and gave her a man who matched her well. -I also liked that this is a romance between two mature, black hero and heroine, and that's a rarity in Romancelandia, which is a shame. -The heart of this novella is the relationship between Shirleen, Roan and Sniff and I adored the...
