Ode to Kristen Ashley

Reasons Why I have an #AuthorCrush on this woman.

1) Kristen creates these worlds that you become a part of on page one. You can be making coffee at Fortum's, learning the ropes of how to be a Biker Babe with Chaos, managing your day to day life in the 'Burg all while trying to NOT get kidnapped, stabbed, buried alive or become the characters in a best selling series written by an anonymous person.

2) This love isn't an ordinary, run of the mill love you find in her books. This is a STOP THE PRESS!... Hung the Moon love. It hits you so deeply that you fall in love right along with the characters. It isn't all romantic love either. There are friendships, mentorships, parental relationships and more that are formed throughout her books that are just earth shatteringly beautiful with their words and actions.


“I figured the Nightingale Investigations job application form had the question "Are you hot? Yes. No. If you answered no, please exit the building.”   (Rock Chick Revenge)

“Wars fought over a face like this,” he murmured like he was talking to himself, my heart stopped beating and his thumbs moved lightly across my cheeks. “A man would work himself into the ground for it, go down to his knees to beg to keep it, endure torture to protect it, take a bullet for it,” his eyes came to mine, “poison his brother to possess a face like this.”   (Knight)

“Do me a favor?”
“In a second, I’m gonna pull over, get out my gun and give it to you. When I do, shoot me with it.”
“What?” she whispered.
“I’m facin’ another hour and a half of your music. I’d rather be dead.”
Silence then, “Shut up.”   (Lady Luck)

“I love you, Bud," he whispered to Billy and two more tears escaped.
"I love you too, Mitch," Billy whispered back, my breath hitched and both males' eyes came to me.
I waved my wineglass at them and murmured, "Don't mind me. Have your moment."
Mitch leaned back, letting Billy go and grinning at me. "Men don't have moments."
"You do," I returned. "I'm witnessing one."
"This isn't a moment, honey, it's a meeting of the minds," Mitch contradicted me.”   (Law Man)

You gonna jump on-line and tell your geek squad you landed me?” (Breathe)

“I’m Chaos?”
“Was my dick just in you?”
I fought an annoyed growl and said, “Uh... yeah.”
“Then you’re Chaos.” (Motorcycle Man)
...And that is just to share a FEW of my favorites.

4) And last, but Definitely NOT least ... SHE FRIGGIN ROCKS! You write her? She replies! You share the quote that made you fall in love with the character you are currently crushing on... she fangirls WITH you because you helped her remember WHY she loves that character. I hope one day to meet this lady and get her to sign EVERYTHING... including my first born. :)
