WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!! Congratulations to Dinah and Jodi who both responded to their email notifications and will be receiving this gift! :)

Hey all of you Rock Chicks!! Who wants a signed Kristen Ashley book??!!! I do!! And I have TWO copies of Rock Chick Redemption to give away tonight, so
that will be TWO winners for tonight’s 22nd Day of Christmas giveaway! This is an incredibly popular and lengthy series (check out the reading order guide and reader enthusiasm, here), and we all know how AMAZING Kristen Ashley’s uber-alpha males are. *sigh* I have fallen for so many of her men, and a few rank in my top favorite heroes spot (meet my favorite one from her Colorado series here). TATE!!! *heart*

And I know for a fact there are quite a few in this series that so many of us have absolutely swooned over. I keep hearing about Lee… ;)

They are on their way to me as we speak, and as soon as they get here I shall be mailing them off to the lucky winners!!

P.S. What took me so long to put this one up? CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!! My husband kidnapped me for an all day long Christmas-fest. He’s happy, and my feet hurt. Tee hee!!! It was fun, though. :)

How to enter for a chance to win one? Just leave a comment below (or better yet, tell me the book the got you reading…), and tomorrow night (Sunday December 23rd, 2012) by 10pm EST, I will randomly select two winners.

The winners will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address, so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance. The books will be sent directly from the author. Sorry for my international readers, this is a open to U.S. residents only (but you’re welcome to comment and join in any time!!).

And while you’re here, if you haven’t already joined me (actually “us”, ’cause we’re a big group now) on Facebook and Twitter, whatcha waiting’ for?!

Eunice K. December 22, 2012 at 10:29 PM

Kristen Ashley is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! All her men make me swoon but Joe Callahan, Luke Stark, and Tate all have a special place in my heart.

Tasha December 22, 2012 at 10:29 PM

Sweet Dreams was the book that sucked me into Kristen Ashley’s world, ever since then I compare all alpha characters to her alpha men :)

Kim December 22, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Awesome!!! I haven’t read this series from the fantastic Kristen Ashley!!! Honestly I read Nancy Drew when I was little lol now you have an idea of how old I am :)

Kayla December 22, 2012 at 10:35 PM

Jus wanna say thanks cuz of ur blog I found this author. I love her books! Would love to win.

Dawn Bush December 22, 2012 at 10:35 PM

Like lots of peeps, the books that got me reading (again) were the 50 shades series books. I really enjoy, also, a lot of the “new adult” genre books…AND the new indie/self-pub authors…guess it was a combination…the perfect storm!

Lisa December 22, 2012 at 10:35 PM

Omg! Not only do I freaking love this series but KA as well. I am anxiously awaiting Allie & Ren’s story. Hmmm what started me reading? Not sure I remember that far back. I just remember my Mom reading every night before bed & her taking me on Saturdays to the library. Yep this was LONG before B&N or Amazon or anything similar. So sorry not a book but guess my Mom at a very early age got me to reading.

Nicole tetrev December 22, 2012 at 10:35 PM

Susan Elizabeth Phillips match me if you can got me reading again her Chicago series was awesome.

Claudia T December 22, 2012 at 10:36 PM

crystal December 22, 2012 at 10:36 PM

Jody Duffy December 22, 2012 at 10:37 PM

I have been reading since I was little. My favorites when I was really little were the Dr. Seuss books and then I discovered Sweet Valley High–The originals….LOL Then twilight started my paranomal obsession! :)

Felicia December 22, 2012 at 10:38 PM

Would like to read the book

Teri Beth December 22, 2012 at 10:38 PM

Would love to read this series! I hear great things about KA! I have no idea what book got me reading, I’ve carried a book around with me (now my kindle) for as far back as I can remember :)

Lisa December 22, 2012 at 10:38 PM

I love this series! And I’m so excited about Ally’s and Ren’s upcoming story because I think we’re going to be bit surprised by Ally.

Savannah December 22, 2012 at 10:39 PM

Stephanie D December 22, 2012 at 10:52 PM

I hadn’t read in almost 3 years after my mom passed away and then some ladies were reading Fifty Shades and were talking about it, so I decided to see what all the “talk” was about. I really enjoyed reading again and didn’t want to stop, so I googled what to read after Fifty Shades and came across your blog. Well needless to say I’ve been reading more than I EVER had!! I’ve read books that I never would have thought about reading and it’s ALL because of this blog. Thanks again for all you do and the time that you put into this. Merry Christmas :)

Amy H December 22, 2012 at 10:53 PM

The book that got me reading is can you believe its Twilight. After that i borrowed books from my friend. Then i told my husdand last year that i wanted a nook for my birthday. So he got it for me. And i keep on reading.

Yvonne Kimbler December 22, 2012 at 10:55 PM

I don’t remember the title but I do recall it being a private selection of Harlequin. I love all most every book. The ones I have trouble with are due to me not being in that kind of mood,

Heather P December 22, 2012 at 10:58 PM

Please pick me! I love KA but I have not started this series yet.

Cassie Hoffman December 22, 2012 at 10:58 PM

I haven’t read these books, but they sound good!!

Adrienne Scales December 22, 2012 at 11:05 PM

Honestly I’m a product of the fifty shades series. I kept hearing about the books and decided to read them to see what all the hype was about. Since then I’ve probably read about 100 books! By the way Kristen Ashley I freaking love you!!!!

Jessica Sotelo December 22, 2012 at 11:06 PM

I’m trying to find a new read right now… I’m having a hard time after coming down from Dirty Red!

Did I mention that my favorite author EVER is Kristen Ashley!? ;-)

Ashley December 22, 2012 at 11:06 PM

*swoon* I recently fell in love with her books. Where have I been?! I just finished reading the Colorado Man series and this one is next!!!

Tiffany December 22, 2012 at 11:07 PM

Yay!!! I love Kristen Ashley!!! I started reading the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evonich. Then I heard about Beautiful Disaster and it was all over for me!! Got me hooked now I can not stop reading!!! :-)

Dawn M. December 22, 2012 at 11:08 PM

The first book that really got me into reading and re-reading it multiple times has to be my favorite YA book – Sooner or Later. It is about a rock star kind of love. They even made it into a movie for TV which I loved just as much as the book. Rex Smith made it famous and brought to life the songs from the movie. I loved the series and would read it again now.

Jess December 22, 2012 at 11:09 PM

Love All her Books!

Angelia December 22, 2012 at 11:09 PM

Teresa H. December 22, 2012 at 11:38 PM

The True Blood series started me back on my reading frenzy a few years back. When I was little, I used to line all of my stuffed animals up against the wall and read to them for hours. That all stopped when I became a teenager because…well, you know….boys happened. I should say the love of my life happened when I met my future husband at the age of 15…stupid dimples will get a girl every time. I love Kristen Ashley’s books. I have read them all except for her Rock Chick series. I would love to win. Merry Christmas!

Kerri December 22, 2012 at 11:41 PM

Little Women is the book that started my love of reading……..so many books since then, including many from Kristen Ashley, would love this one too. Thanks!

Sheri Zee December 22, 2012 at 11:41 PM

The book that got me reading again, none other than 50 Shades of Grey.

Been reading a few more of hers but spacing them out so I can actually function. :) about to start Dirty Red.

Sarah B December 22, 2012 at 11:53 PM

paula k. December 22, 2012 at 11:54 PM

LucyLou December 23, 2012 at 12:18 AM

Would love to win. Just finished Seduction And Snacks (needed something light hearted and fun with the in-laws here for the holidays) and am currently doing a fast skim/re-read of the Opportunist so I can start Dirty Red. Hope I don’t get too emotional and start sobbing in front of my husband’s family, but I can’t resist starting Dirty Red, so it might get ugly. ;)

Nikki December 23, 2012 at 12:21 AM

50 shades got me hooked on reading… I haven’t gone a single day without reading my Nook ever since!

Brianna Lee December 23, 2012 at 12:21 AM

Ooh these books are on my TBR list! That’d be great to win!! I have always loved to read as a kid. I read the wishbone dog mysteries, the babysitters cub, and goosebumps. Lol . So I got my mystery, my chicks books, and my scary books. But I loved to read all kinds of things as long as it was good as I got older. Then, I got a little away from reading because I was too busy partying as a teen. But the twilight books got me back into really reading and I haven’t stopped since. I have been a crazy and avid reader since then. It also brought me into the paranormal genre which I love! I just love to read haha. Thanks for another giveaway!

Jen Neff December 23, 2012 at 12:22 AM

Love Kristen Ashley!! Can’t wait to read this series. The Teilight Series got me reading again after having my three kids!

LucyLou December 23, 2012 at 12:26 AM

He he he.. I misread (actually read too fast…the holidays have me in overdrive) and thought you asked what we were currently reading. To answer your question: Twilight got me started reading again, then the Anita Blake series and the Sookie Stackhouse series fueled me into my current reading addiction. :)

Bojana R December 23, 2012 at 12:28 AM

I started really getting into reading after I finished the Twilight series

Brandi Gilvaja December 23, 2012 at 1:12 AM

Kristen Ashley is one badass chick! I stalk her via Facebook lol I would totally fan girl over this book and possibly hide in a corner muttering “my precious” if I happened to win a copy!

Oh and Dirty Red was AMAZING! I freaking hate Red but the whole story was SO good. I had to put my reader down around the 97% mark and do some “whoosahs”. I can’t wait for the next book!

Thank you for the entry!

Missy December 23, 2012 at 1:12 AM

Xoxo-I love KA! Pick me!!!

Nikki Sparks December 23, 2012 at 1:15 AM

Regina S. December 23, 2012 at 2:07 AM

The “Twilight Series” I could not put them down. Then I got a Kindle and I never watched TV again. Just like they made movies of Twilight….wouldn’t it be nice if they made movies of some of our favorite alpha men hunks. I would start going to the movies and start watching t.v. again. Yah baby!

Regina S.
P.S. I haven’ t read this author, she sounds like I would love her series. Merry Christmas Maryse

Dannette Moreno December 23, 2012 at 2:07 AM

Jen December 23, 2012 at 2:38 AM

That would be Dr. Seuss of course!!
The first Kristen Ashley book I read was Knight. I was hooked! Love everything I have read that she has written. I have not started the Rock Chick series, because I know it will consume me for awhile. It will be a big time commitment on my part, because I will want to read them nonstop!

LisaMarie December 23, 2012 at 2:56 AM

Twilight is the book that got me reading

Jayme December 23, 2012 at 3:05 AM

The book that started my reading kick was 50 shades…but I love Kristen Ashley! RC is one of my favorite series.

50 Shades of grey and the two after that got me reading again… Now I always have a book I’m reading!! It’s great! It’s brought a whole new adventure to my life!;)

Shai Villanueva December 23, 2012 at 4:16 AM

I don’t really remember what book got me reading but I guess it’s Colleen Hoover’s novels that got me addicted :) I just can’t stop myself from reading other novels after and search for another story, i mean gut-wrenching and inspiring. Anyways, I hope I can read this Kristen Ashley book, seems like a good one based on your comments. :)

Carol December 23, 2012 at 4:33 AM

LOVE her stories! Currently reading Law Man in the Dream man series.

ana December 23, 2012 at 4:42 AM

The book that got me reading : The Secret of the Old Clock, Nancy Drew waaaaay back when I was 10-11

Michaela December 23, 2012 at 4:46 AM

The book that got me reading was actually a series. I loved the Boxcar children growing up. When that didnt suffie, I grabbed every boom I could get my hands on… Like the Sweet Valley series!!

Thanks Maryse!

Amanda December 23, 2012 at 4:54 AM

Twilight sparked my love of reading!

Sarah Hampton December 23, 2012 at 5:25 AM

This is on my long list of TBR!

Brandi Wa December 23, 2012 at 5:39 AM

I love Kristen Ashley’s books! Thanks for another great giveaway! The book/series that got me into reading back in the day was the Sweet Valley High series! As an adult, though, I got too busy with reading and stopped for quite a while. Then the Harry Potter series got me reading again (I was teaching at the time and had to keep up with my students lol).

Kassandra December 23, 2012 at 6:03 AM

OMG, I’m obsessed with Kristen Ashley, I love her she is such a great author !!!! :) And the book that got me reading is actually Twilight (nobody knew the book at that time haha) :)

Karen December 23, 2012 at 6:32 AM

When I was a teenager, my Mom’s Harlequin Romances started me reading for pleasure.

Norma December 23, 2012 at 7:11 AM

What got me reading was the 50 shades of grey thanks to my lovely neighbor whom told me about it. Currently I’m reading the keeping by Nicky Charles loving it !!!!!

Melissa December 23, 2012 at 7:17 AM

50 shades is the book that got me reading and then after that I found Kristen Ashley and that was it for me. She’s my favorite!

Minha (BrazGirl) December 23, 2012 at 7:23 AM

Kristen Ashley is one of my FAVORITES. Her alpha males have a special place in my heart. I have not read this series yet, would love to win it. Thanks

Tina Rappa December 23, 2012 at 7:29 AM

Would love to read! The books that got me started
To read was Thoughtless & Effortless by
SC Stephens, love her and her stories!!!

Minha (BrazGirl) December 23, 2012 at 7:31 AM

Ohhh, I forgot to mention…. Like you, Maryse, Twilight also was the one that got me started on my reading frenzy, and after Beautiful Disaster introduced me to your blog, I was lost to the reading world forever… :)

denise December 23, 2012 at 7:33 AM

These look good! I am in a slump after The Mighty Storm and Hopeless. Can’t decide what to read next as both are still running through my mind. Suggestions????

Donitta Mullins December 23, 2012 at 7:40 AM

Im reading Colorado series. Love Love Love Kristen Ashley. I have a goal to read all of her books. Love your updates.

Nicole December 23, 2012 at 7:46 AM

The book that got me reading again was Twilight.

kayna December 23, 2012 at 7:49 AM

I love her books :) hopefully I can love this one too lol

Debbie Whalen December 23, 2012 at 8:05 AM

I recently read Motorcycle Man, my 1st Kristen Ashley book, then I read the rest of the Dream Man series and now I am hooked! I want to read Rock Chicks now.
The Twilight books got me back into reading. I love getting lost in a good book!!!

Mary December 23, 2012 at 8:07 AM

Yay! I have read this series SO many times; I absolutely love it! Rock Chick (Lee and Indy’s story) was the first KA book I read. When I found out there was a series?? Forget about it! I’ve read every book she’s had published and impatiently wait for another. My favorite Rock Chick book is Luke and Ava’s story. That woman can write a kick ass alpha male like nobody’s business! Don’t forget The ‘Burg series or the Colorado Mountain Man Series. Oh my! Knight is quite dreamy too. You don’t want to like him but whew!
I didn’t know her books were available in print. I’d like to say if I win ill gift the book but I’m not gonna lie. I’m keeping that baby!
Thanks Maryse and thanks Kristen! You guys rock!!

Allie Mathews December 23, 2012 at 8:10 AM

The Harry Potter series got me to start reading for pleasure. Now I can’t stop! Thanks for the chance to win this giveaway! :)

Kasey S December 23, 2012 at 9:23 AM

Kristy S December 23, 2012 at 9:27 AM

My love of reading started when I was a kid and picked up my first Babysitter’s Club book. I didnt read much during my college years — didn’t have time. :) Twilight helped me get back in to reading and I haven’t stopped since. I tried Law Man by Ms. Ashley and loved it! Would love to try her Rock Chick series.

Michele T December 23, 2012 at 9:34 AM

Twilight is what got me reading again.. And is also what lead me to YOU!! Almost 2 yrs ago!!! Without you I would have NO… Kellan, BDB, Travis, Caleb (Dark Duet), Brian (Rock Me), Fifty (who was OURS BEFORE he got popular, tee hee) and MANY, MANY others!!! Merry Chirstmas Maryse!! xx

I love all of Kristen Ashley’s books but what got me started reading was Mystery Man and then I was hooked!!!
