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?

Crystal L's Thoughts:

So, most of us know that all of the Hot Bunch Boys are drool worthy. I'm sure we all have our favorites. Mine are Luke, Eddie and VANCE. Oh, how I love me some Vance Crowe. I won't spend this entire review perving on the delicious ex-con... but I wish I could!

Anywho! This book features the ridiculously bad-ass social worker Jules. At nighttime she becomes a vigilante real life superhero making the lives of drug dealers a living hell by filling their car with cooking oil, shrink wrapping doors, and smoke bombing them. She's got a personal vendetta to settle. Unfortunately she catches the attention of the Hot Bunch Boys when she pulls a modern day shoot em out showdown in front of Fortnums. Vance tracks her down to try and convince her to give up her nighttime activities, but Jules tells him no way. Sparks fly between the two of them. Vance sees something in the little social worker that peeks his interest. So he starts keeping track of her.

He keeps showing up when she's battling the bad guys. Talks her into training with the Hot Bunch boys, and he also keeps breaking into her place to see her. He's quickly driving Jules NUTS. And perhaps a few other things, like making her go warm all over with his alpha tendencies and mind blowing kisses. Jules keeps trying to slow Vance's pursuit of her down, but like any of Kristen Ashley's men... he keeps the relationship's pace where he thinks it needs to be. Going 100 mph and more than likely towards a bed.

Eventually Jules vigilante activities catch up with her, putting her in danger. Will Vance be able to keep her safe? Will he be able to work past all of her defenses to get to the heart of the woman he's realized is meant to be his? Or will fate yank her cruelly away from him?

This story is fast paced, emotional, funny and like all of the other Rock Chick books... AMAZING! Don't miss it! 4.5 Wine glass toast!
