Baseball on the Infield Chalk Line with the Base in the distance

“Forse potresti prendere la seconda base.” Gli confidai.

Alzò la testa, i suoi occhi sfavillanti catturarono i miei e sorrise.

“Forse la prossima volta.”


Obviously, I’d decided to go out with Marcus.

He wanted to convince me we were meant to be together, he’d been kind enough to me he’d earned that shot.

But he was going to know what he was getting.

To this end, I was wearing my leopard print (or one of them). A skintight mini-dress that only went down to there. The back was scooped all the way out and the front was scooped to maximum cleavage potential (and with the maximums of my cleavage, this might be awe-inspiring to some; heck, it was my cleavage and it was still that to me).

I was going to pair this with my sky-high platform sandals with the black patent across the balls of my feet, open toes to show off the new fire-engine-red pedicure I’d given myself (along with the same in a manicure, but on my long talons, I’d added a curve of amber rhinestones all along one side of the outer edge of each ring finger). The platform and heel of the shoes were covered in leopard.

My hair was even more sky-high than my platforms. Teased to mammoth proportions at the top and sides, I’d smoothed that back and then curled the hell out of the rest of my tresses so they fell in soft, defined swirls from a high-rise at the crown all the way down my back (the bangs were blown out straight and brushing my forehead).

My makeup was how I’d do it if I was stripping, which was how I’d do it when I wasn’t stripping. My eyes weren’t smoky. They were smoke. My skin bronzed. The sides of my nose and under my cheekbones shaded. My cheeks a dewy tangerine. My lips a nude-y, super-glossed, glittering peach.

I had in bronze chandelier earrings that nearly swept my shoulders and were liberally dosed with black and amber beads. A bronze statement necklace practically covered my upper chest and I had so many dangly bracelets on, if Marcus got through the night without the noise of them tinkling driving him to murder me, he’d definitely pass an important test.

A Message from Kristen:

Dear Reader,

I’m beside myself with glee that this prequel to my Rock Chick series has been unleashed! There was some time when I never thought I’d write it. When I couldn’t be in that terrible place with Daisy. But I’m oh-so glad that she called to me, demanding her story be told so she could give it to me and now I can give it to you! I loved every moment spent with Daisy and Marcus. And I hope you do too!

~Kristen Ashley

“We inhaled Marcus and Daisy’s story, how could we not. It was everything to us and we cannot thank Kristen Ashley enough for writing it, in her much loved unique manner. The queen of epilogues struck once more and we smiled through copious tears of happiness, our hearts feeling full and complete. Whilst sad that it’s over we just can’t feel anything but happiness and love right now. It was Aces! Rock on…and be prepared to be swept of off your feet.”

kristen-ashley-headshotAbout Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.







Un Messaggio da Kristen:

Caro Lettore,

non sto più in me dalla gioia che questo prequel della mia serie Rock Chick sia stato rilasciato! C’è stato un momento in cui pensavo che non lo avrei mai scritto.

Quando non riuscivo a stare con Daisy in quel posto terribile. Ma sono così felice che mi abbia finalmente parlato, chiedendo che fosse raccontata la sua storia, in modo che lei potesse darla a me e io potessi darla a te! Ho amato ogni momento trascorso con Daisy e Marcus.

E spero sia così anche per te!

Kristen Ashley



Ovviamente, avevo deciso di andare fuori con Marcus.

Voleva convincermi che eravamo fatti per stare insieme, ed era stato così gentile con me che si era meritato questa possibilità.

Ma stava per rendersi conto di quello a cui stava per andare incontro.

Per questa uscita, stavo indossando qualcosa di leopardato (uno tra i tanti). Un mini-vestito attillato che arrivava giusto a coprire . La schiena era completamente scoperta e di fronte era scollato esponendo al massimo il potenziale della mia scollatura (e con la mia scollatura al massimo, qualcuno avrebbe potuto trovare lo spettacolo sublime; cavoli, era la mia scollatura e rimaneva solo quello per me).

Lo avrei abbinato ai miei sandali di vernice nera con plateau e tacchi alti che si allacciavano sulla parte anteriore del piede, che lasciavano le dita scoperte per mostrare la mia nuova pedicure rosso fuoco, che mi ero fatta da sola (insieme con una manicure identica, ma sopra le mie unghie lunghe, avevo aggiunto degli strass color ambra lungo tutto un lato fino al margine esterno di entrambi gli anulari). Il plateau e i tacchi delle scarpe erano ricoperti da una fantasia leopardata.

I miei capelli erano ancora più lunghi dei sandali. Molto folti in cime e ai lati, li avevo pettinati all’indietro per poi arricciarli per tutta la dannata lunghezza delle ciocche per farli ricadere in morbidi ricci definiti dall’inizio dell’attaccatura dei capelli fino in fondo alla schiena (la frangia era stirata e dritta e mi sfiorava la fronte).

Il trucco era uguale a come lo facevo per lo spogliarello, che era lo stesso che facevo quando non facevo lo spogliarello. I miei occhi non erano smoky. Erano truccati pesantemente. La pelle abbronzata. Le parti laterali del mio naso e gli zigomi sfumati. Le mie guance accentuate dalla terra. Sulle labbra avevo applicato un balsamo, lucidalabbra, color pesca.

Indossavo degli orecchini chandelier che mi toccavano quasi le spalle in cui erano liberamente assemblate perle nere e ambra. Un vistoso girocollo color bronzo praticamente ricopriva la parte superiore del mio petto e indossavo così tanti braccialetti tintinnanti, che se Marcus fosse riuscito a portare a termine la serata senza che il tintinnio lo spingesse a farmi fuori, avrebbe assolutamente passato un test importante.




Dall’autrice di best-seller del New York Times Kristen Ashley, arriva la tanto attesa storia di Daisy e Marcus, Rock Chick Reawakening. Un prequel della serie di Kristen Rock Chick, Rock Chick Reawakening racconta la storia dell’evento devastante che fece quasi a pezzi Daisy, un evento che spinse finalmente Marcus Sloan – uno dei più rispettati uomini d’affari di Denver e uno dei più temuti boss nascosti del crimine – a decidere di fare la sua mossa per conquistare il cuore della donna che glielo aveva rubato.



Kristen Asley è nata a Gary, in Indiana, USA e ha quasi ucciso se stessa e sua madre nel venire al mondo, visto come aveva attorcigliato intorno al collo il suo cordone ombelicale (già tentava di indossare accessori e ancora non aveva fatto il suo primo respiro!). La madre racconta che quando portarono via Kristen e la riportarono nella sua stanza, lei guardò fuori dalla finestra e Gary era in fiamme (il Dr King era stato assassinato quattro giorni prima). La madre di Kristen si ricorda che pensò di essere davanti alla fine del mondo. Davvero un inizio drammatico.

Niente è cambiato.
Kristen è cresciuta a Brownsburg, in Indiana e ha vissuto a Denver, Colorado e nell’ovest dell’Inghilterra. Per questo è fortunata ad avere amici e familiari in giro per il mondo. La sua famiglia era (è) una famiglia di matti (a dir poco) ma essere matti è una buona cosa quando vuoi scrivere. Hanno vissuto tutti insieme in una fattoria molto piccola, in una piccola cittadina rurale nell’interno del Paese.
È cresciuta ascoltando Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon e gli Whitesnake (e un guardaroba che si intonava a loro).
Inutile dire che crescere in una casa colma di musica, vestiti e amore è stata un ottimo modo per crescere.
E mentre continua a crescere, diventa sempre meglio.
