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.
Hector “Hispanic Hottie-Double H” Chavez, had thick, black, wavy hair, black eyes, long legs, broad shoulders and a lean, amazing body. He was magnetic.
5 Stars! Another hit in the Rock Chick series!
I’m on a Hector and Sadie HIGH!! I’ll be honest with you; Hector pissed me off in the beginning when Sadie went into Nightingale Investigations to inquire about hiring them for her protection. He let everyone believe that she was everything they thought she was when he knew better. Hector was aware that Sadie was nothing like her father, even tried to help him when he was undercover and he never opened his mouth to tell them any different. That’s what made what happened to her even more heartbreaking. BUT like a true Hot Bunch hero, he stepped up to the plate…big time!! I believe he was angry with himself, as he should have been, gave her everything he had to make it right, and I loved that he let her find her way on her own. Hector just pointed her in the right direction…into his arms, bed and eventually his heart, *sigh*!
Sadie was feisty, funny and totally clueless when it came to all things Rock Chick or for that matter, just being a girl with girlfriends, being part of a family, living a normal life. Sadie’s transition from Ice Princess to “just” Sadie was fun to watch. OMG…when Sadie had her breakdown in the gallery…I was running with her, crying, she was so broken *sob*. Duke, what you did, what you said…perfect. You are the man!!
Oh Hector, just like those in the Hot Bunch who came before, you are a dream come true. So sweet, so deliciously HOT, so alpha…RAWRRRR!!! You can take possession of me anytime…all of me…my heart, my body and my soul…you and me babe…s’mores at my house, I don’t have a hot tub, but we’ll figure something out!! I’ll spray you with my misting fan, get you all wet and…okay forget it!
Of course, the regulars were back and I love them all, but we also got to meet two very enjoyable characters that really added to the humor and emotion in the book. Ralphie and Buddy…adorable and hilarious! Tod and Stevie are great, but Ralphie and Buddy need to be my friends. I want to hang out with them. I’m thinkin’ since Sadie’s moved out, they’ve got room for me!! Lemon Drops and Veronica Mars! I’m so there. I got a thing for Marcus too…wouldn’t it be great if KA wrote a novella about him and Daisy? I would love to know more about what makes him tick!
I’m so sad that we only have one more book in the series. I’m going to miss all of them. I was hoping that Eric and Darius…even Carl would get some lovin’…but alas, it’s not meant to be. Oh well, I’ll just have to start with book one and love them all over again!
