Rock Chick Renegade (Rock Chick #4) by Kristen Ashley
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 gunstore 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?

With this one, I’ve changed my mind: I love Rock Chick Renegade the most! Honestly, this book has been a stepping stone in the series. So much has happened and so much action, it became my favorite book of the series so far.
What to expect? Well, when meeting Law, you instantly fall in love with her. She is a match for Vance, and she’ll challenge him all the way. Furthermore, she gets accepted into Lee’s crew and gets everyone’s blessing with her kickass skills. She’s a social worker by day and a vigilante by night. When she messes with the wrong people and starts to get more attention, people want her out. Luckily for her, she meets Vance and her life changes.
“Jesus, you think you’re fuckin’ Catwoman”, he muttered.
“I do not. Catwoman wore a leotard and stupid ears and fake claws. That’s just silly.”
When I say this book is a stepping stone, I mean Darius, Lee and Eddie’s best friend / brother from another mother gets out from the drug business and joins Lee’s team. Same as Hector, who apparently was a DEA undercover man. That was all with Law’s help. And Shirleen gets hired as a replacement of Dawn! Yey!
Rock Chick Renegade was even more hilarious from page one. I really love the inside stories the guys have, and it makes it funnier when the new chick catches the story.
“Those boys got a way about ’em, Jules. They don’t fuck around. They see somethin’ they want, they get it. They’re fuckin’ famous for it. A woman don’t stand a chance. He seem interested?”
“…honestly, there’s nothing to worry about. We went our separate ways. I’ll be smarter, I’ll be more quiet, I’ll be –“
“Laid, good and simple. Crowe got a look at you, you’re his.”
Law is a bad ass woman, but she gets hurt in the end. Luckily, she pulls through. No words for Vance! He’s one of the top guys in the series alongside with Lee, Hank, Eddie, Mace and Luke!
