Ally the heroine was too tomboyish to be a heroine in a KA book. I did not like her at all from previous books and this one did not change my mind about her. Ren was great in the beginning but turned into a milquetoast hero after the 20% mark. This was disappointing because clearly he was not this one-dimensional before. Even if his book had to be written it should not have been within the context of Ally's constant self-validation as a rock-chick and a PI, it made her very seem just nosy and clique-ish and hardly someone I want to read about as a heroine. My least favorite of all the Rock Chick books by KA, the self-referencing was cringe-worthy and distracting to say the least.
