Roxie's on the run from a bad boyfriend who will not catch the hint that it is o-v-e-r. She's in no mood for love at first sight, but when her eyes fall on Hank, it's trouble from the get-go. Roxie tries to hold Hank at arm's length but Hank wants to be a closer (as in, a lot closer). Roxie's trouble catches up with her and Hank wants to help but Roxie knows in her heart that she¿s no good for a white-hat guy. The problem is no one agrees with her, especially her crazy hippie best friend Annette or her parents; the even crazier small-Indiana-town Herb and Trish. Toss into the mix the gang from Rock Chick and Rock Chick Rescue and Roxie finds herself totally outnumbered.
Climb in for another Rock Chick wild ride through Rock Chick Redemption. As the odds stack up against Roxie, she has no choice but to hold on and just ride it out through the kidnappings, car chases, society parties, a riot at the strip club, Hank getting "Mom Bombed" and one crazy night at the Haunted House.
During all this Hank works at convincing her she really wants to stay and he, along with the Hot Bunch, go all out to make her safe. Hank also needs to work on showing Roxie that her past decisions don't mean her future can't include something as downright delicious as normal.
Rock Chick Redemption (Rock Chick #3)

Another Rock Chick audio devoured.
I laughed, I cried (on the train…avoiding eye contact with fellow passengers) and I loved every minute of it. Is it freaky that my two favourite parts are –
1. When she is at her worst and needs saving. That it’s Vance (who saves her) may have something to do with it. He’s all hot, intense and thoughtful.
2. When Hank loses it and yells at her for putting her life in danger. The fact that she stepped in front of danger to protect him and her loved ones made it even more epic in my mind.
I think it’s the emotions portrayed that made them my favourite parts.
Even though Roxie feels so bad about herself (at that particular moment), seeing the care and protection she received made me feel tight in my chest. If I was in the same situation, I would want someone looking out for me when I’m at my worst.
Hank’s reaction to screaming at Roxie seemed very real. I loved that someone so “in control” lost it so epically. I know that I’m guilty of screaming at my kids when they risk their health and wellbeing. I want my kids to be happy and safe at all times and I think this was why Hank yelled.
Hank is the serious one in the group. He seems to watch everything going on around him and observe the proceedings. When it’s needed, he says what needs to be said. Sometimes, even he can’t control his actions and reactions. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when he lost it. I’m pretty sure he would be EXTREMELY passionate.
Roxie’s love for fashion and dressing up I can totally relate to. Her need to always present herself in the best light is something I (try to) do as well. I can’t remember the last time I left my house without lipstick on and my hair not done.
Honestly, I do struggle a little with the way the Rock Chicks push away their men…for their man’s benefit. Hello…if the hot bunch guy is up for the challenge, go with the flow.
Rock Chick Redemption is about finding the love of your life and finding the person who will put up with you through the good and the bad. No love is perfect and nobody is perfect.
As per usual…the Rock Chick gang makes Rock Chick Redemption fun and interesting. I want my own Rock Chick gang…and a Hot Bunch too.
For some reason, the odd numbers in this series are my favourite. (Rubbing my hands together in delight) Luke and Ava are up next.
