I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

Rock Chick (Rock Chick, #1)

Rock Chick (Rock Chick, #1) - Kristen Ashley I would really like to know, why authors think they need to write a 400-some page book, when they would have writen a perfectly fine 200-some page book? Seriously? This is not the only book where I find my self thinking that.I was perfectly happy and entertained by the 50% mark. And it wasn't like nothing had happened. A TON had happened already! But it was fast paced, funny, entertaining, etc. Yes, it had not been perfect either. There was repetition and some douche moves from Lee that pissed me off, and some stupid ass moves from Indy that made want to smack her. And yet, I was still happy.But nooooo, the story just HAD to keep going.Bad move.And it just, *sigh*, just no. It made the repetition that much more anoying. How many time was Indy kidnapped? 3? Seriously?!How many time where the same terms used?"Shit. Shit, shit, shit.How many times... ok, you get my point. It. Was. Just. Too. Much.I have read only 1 other KA book, Knight, and I have to say, the guy MC's are pretty similar. See? more repetition, even in different series. And I have heard this is an almost given in the coming books, which does not make me happy.It was not ALL bad. I still had fun reading some of the story. Lee was HOT, but also too grabby, grabby when it came to controlling Indy.I liked him so much in the beggining where he made his intentions perfectly clear to Indy. And who doesn't love an alpha? But that doesn't mean you let him push you around and make decissions for you, just cause you're finally together.You're not wearing that.You're moving in with me.Etc.Now Indy...well what the hell? I thought she was a self sufficient, independent, Rock Chick. But all she did was let Lee push her around and make desissions for her, and then go out in to the wolves den to get freakin kidnapped!I loved her coffee obsession and her humour, but she needed more back bone.There are about 109,283,390 characters introduced and I'm sure they will get their own long ass story, but one that absolutely stood out in a good way, was Tex.What a freakin awesome dude. Thumbs up for his crazyness and randomness. Loyal, crazy and a cat lover. Cool.So to wrap it up, this would have been a 3.5(maybe 4) star read, had it been 50% shorter. As it is? I'll round it up to 2.5 stars, which means barely ok. I will go on to the next book, in the hopes of a better experience, but since it looks to be even LONGER than this one, well I'm keeping my expectations low. I hope I'm wrong so that I don't have to drop the series half way done...2.5 starsCarina Wishes She Had Loved
