Since Luke, Ava’s childhood crush, is now a private investigator, she thinks to enlist him but changes her mind at the last second. Too late, Luke knows she’s up to something and he’s already seen many a Rock Chick try to fight her own battles without the Hot Bunch stepping in. He’s having none of it. She’s having none of him. The clash of the Rock Chick and Hot Guy begins....

Juliet Lawler has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance Crowe 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. She enlists Zip (the gunstore owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help. The Rock Chicks get involved to provide advice and guidance. The Hot Bunch adopt Jules as one of their own.

One of my favourite authors so I have started collecting the audible versions. Difficult to stop listening but great to do the boring repetive work.

Having read this book I returned to it to listen to. This presentation made me smile and laugh. The performance change of voice to female ,particularly the bowling posse added another dimension to sense of the characters. Very enjoyable

Justice Lonesome has enjoyed a life of bounty. Even so, she's inherited the curse of the Lonesome. A poet's soul. Which means she's still searching for something. Searching for peace. Searching for the less...that's more. And when the foundation of her life is pulled out from under her, grieving, she goes to the mountains to find her oasis. She hits Carnal, Colorado, and decides to stay.

I have read lots of books I only choose to listen to special ones. Kristen Ashley writes in a style that lends itself perfect for listening to. The reader is excellent and near the end of the story made me cry, in a good way.
Recommend highly

I really enjoyed Hearing another Kristen Ashley Book. It does add another experience of the author's work as the reader creates another dimension to the imagining in your head. All of the books in this series are a superb journey and you are really sad to reach the end , but with a smile on your face. My advice try them all.

Would you consider the audio edition of Heaven and Hell to be better than the print version?

I have read this book and you imagine the voice and tone yourself but this rendering is just fabulous. It made it come really alive. I now have both and would say the audio is just superb

What was one of the most memorable moments of Heaven and Hell?

Sorry too hard to pick individual but I can say that the interplay of conversations are gems and even the s...t and f.....k are timed for maximum effect.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Each time she goes to run and Sam says or does just the right thing. Also the scene at the lake when they first meet

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is a very hard book to stop. I did all my chores listening to it and it made the time fly.

Any additional comments?

I can't recommend highly enough. Kristen Ashley would have to one of my favourite authors but this audio book is superb Felicity Monroe just did it so well. I am going to track down some more of Kristens and I hope Felicity has done more of them.
