Sadie Townsend is known by all as The Ice Princess and she’s worked hard to earn her reputation. Her father, a now-incarcerated Drug Lord, has kept her under his thumb her whole life and she’s learned enough from living in his world to give everyone the cold shoulder. But one inebriated night, she shows the Real Sadie to the undercover agent she knows is investigating her father, the handsome Hector Chavez, and he knows he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

Hector makes one (huge) mistake; he waits for Sadie to come to him. Tragedy strikes and Sadie’s got a choice, she can retreat behind her Ice Fortress or she can embrace the Rock Chick/Hot Bunch World. Guided by Hector, the Rock Chicks, the Hot Bunch and her new gay roommates, Buddy and Ralphie, Sadie negotiates a life out from under her father’s thumb, a life that includes poison, arson and learning how to make s’mores.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Ok so where do I start?

HECTOR is where I start.

Now I do love me Luke... but WOW, there was something simply wonderful and manly and toe curling about Hector and his Sadie handling... * sigh*

Double H.

Hispanic Hottie.

Mamita,” his voice was rough with what sounded like laughter and something else altogether,” you think you could handle my mouth between your legs without freakin’ out?”

Yowzer! * grabs fan * 

Hector wasn’t at all what I was expecting from our previous meet ups where he has popped up in this series.

Oh baby, he was so much more.

Then he said, “I’ll give you time. You’ve been through hell, but when the time is right, I’m gonna pull her out.”

Hector was indeed in the words of Ralphie a Hispanic hottie.
I totally love Ralphie and Buddy.


I love me an endearment and we get some Spanish ones.



Mi Corazon.

Mi cielo... *sigh*

Shenanigans were shenanified in all their glory in this instalment.

I’ve never watched one...single...episode of Veronica Mars.


Now I wanna.

I also want me a s’mores.

“Fuckin’ A, woman. You’ve never had a s’more?” he boomed.

I shook my head.

“Christ, everyone’s gotta have a s’more before they die. Fuck that shit, I’ll build a fire in my backyard tonight and I’ll stop by Kumar’s on the way home to get the stuff. Everyone can come by –“

Tex!! I SO love it when he enters the story line because he is sure to amuse me.

“You make good coffee,” Tex replied.

I pushed New Sadie, though from his reply I wasn’t sure she was working for me. “Not like you. You’re a master.”

“Well, darlin’, you think I make good coffee, why the fuck haven’t I seen you at the store?” he asked.


“Bullshit,” he interrupted me before I even got started.

Before I could think, my eyes narrowed. “What do you mean ‘bullshit’? You didn’t even hear what I had to say.”

“Whatever it was, it was gonna be bullshit,” Tex shot back.

It was then I heard Buddy laughing from beside me, and I decided to stay silent. Really, what else could I do? This guy was crazy.

Tex turned to Buddy. “Who’re you?” he demanded to know.

“I’m Buddy, Sadie’s friend.” Buddy put out his hand.

Tex took it. They shook, then Tex’s blue eyes turned to me. He leaned in then down, grabbed my hand and started dragging me across the bar.

Yes, dragging me across the bar.

“Excuse me!” I said to his back, trying to pull my hand from his and not succeeding.

He looked back at me but kept walking as people jumped out of his way. “Tonight, you sit by me.”

“But –“

“No lip!” he boomed as he led us to the Rock Chick table.

Oh blooming heck.

First, Tex leaned into me when the second song began and boomed into my ear, “If there’s a shootout or somethin’, you stick with me.”

“V...I...fuckin’...P!” Tex boomed the minute Shirleen, Daisy, Hector and I walked into Fortnum’s Used Bookstore ( Buddy was at my apartment with the “lab boys”).

Indy and a big, gray-bearded, long-gray-hair-in-a-ponytailed man wearing a black T-shirt that demanded you “Ride the Range” and a black leather vest with a rolled red bandana on his forehead were standing behind the counter.

Tex and Jet behind the espresso counter. Ally was clearing coffee mugs from the seating area.

“You!” Tex boomed, pointing at the people innocently sitting on the couch in front of the big, glass window at the front of the store. “That’s VIP seating. Up! Move!”

And then there is Ren Zano.

He was followed, to my horror, by the tall, handsome, dark-haired Ren Zano wearing a tailored suit ( and wearing it really well by the way). This making me acutely aware that I was wearing nothing but Hector’s t-shirt and a pair of dove grey satin panties, which, luckily, you couldn’t see as the shirt hung to mid-thigh.

Giddy up next book up is Ren's! But according to the KA order of readin' I gotta read Colorado Mountain first including Breathe, mix that in with For You from the Burg Series before Jagged in Colorado Mountain and then I am good to go with Rock Chick Revolution.

Me being me, I want the WHOLE KA reading experience in the order they cometh without spoilers.

Oh...and I get to meet her this weekend at RWDU15 on the Gold Coast. 

Huzzah!!! I promise not to yell out Tex quotes across the room.

Lordy if any of you lot have not started this series...BLOODY HELL !! Get on with it, you won't be disappointed.

Like dudes, we are talking the Hot Bunch here, people!!
