I really, really, really liked these books. I bailed out of eating lunch with my work friends so that I could read the end of one of them. Only really good books get this honor, because sometimes my work friends make my lunch break just as interesting as a good book. Michelle Valentine totally rocked my Kindle. I was thinking it’s pretty awesome that she’s a nurse and still works and she’s just writing on the side. Anywho about the book…
Lane broke up with her high school love Noel after high school. She was ambitious and wanted to pursue her college degree. He wanted to make a living singing. Not everyone gets to be a rock god just because they want to. Fortunately, that’s just what Noel does. He’s got a super hot band, Black Falcon, and he’s living the life of a full blown rock star. Lane’s an intern at a marketing company and just her luck she gets picked to talk to Noel about his plans for his charity. Considering he dedicates a song to the girl that broke his heart at his concerts – it’s not looking good.
One bad conversation between the two and a several week job that entails Lane going on tour with the band… things get pretty hot. It gets even better when Lane’s friend Aubrey gets interested in Riff another member of the band.
Rock the Band is a novella so it’s book 1.5.
I’d definitely recommend these books and I can’t wait for the 2nd book, Rock My Bed, to come out approximately April 22, 2013.
For the last four years, good girl Lane has regretted breaking up with Noel Falcon. She thought she was sensible when she told him his dreams of being a rock star would get him nowhere, but now that he’s a rock god and her career is stagnant, she realizes just how wrong she was. When Noel hires the marketing company where Lane is an intern, she’s forced to see him again. If she wants to land her dream job as executive within the company, she has to win him over and secure his account. Too bad Noel is still pissed at her for breaking his heart.
When Lane’s company flies her to a Black Falcon concert to gain Noel’s attention, emotions run high the moment she sees him and realizes she’s far from over him. But Noel’s countless trysts with groupies and his cocky attitude make Lane believe he isn’t the same guy she once loved—now he seems to only want her body. Then after Lane discloses she needs him to procure a job, Noel proves he’s a changed man by forcing her to go on the road with him in order to get it.
After Lane reluctantly takes Noel up on his offer, she becomes willing to do whatever it takes to keep him satisfied, even if it means succumbing to his seductive ways. Lane soon finds deception is a dangerous game and she’s not the only one playing.
After Noel Falcon professed his love to the one girl who truly holds his heart in the palm of her hand, he decides to try his damndest to keep Lane Vance in his life forever this time. There’s no way he’ll let her slip through his fingers again without a fight.
The instant they are together Noel begins to plot a way to ask his headstrong lady-love to be his wife, but every attempt to pop the question is foiled by a string of mishaps that prevents him from the perfect moment to get the job done before he goes back on tour with Black Falcon.
Distance is a bigger challenge than Noel expects, and the one-eyed beast of jealous raises its ugly head when Lane takes on a job working on an ad campaign for Embrace the Darkness. With Striker—a man that’s made it clear in the past he’s very interested in more then her business sense—lurking around her constantly, Noel wants to claim Lane now, more than ever.
Everything always seems to fall into place for twenty-four year-old Aubrey Jenson, except for when it comes to her luck with men. Bad boys always draw her in and crush her heart, and Black Falcon’s lead guitarist, Riff, is no exception. After sharing a few wild nights together, she leaves him behind, knowing a guy like Riff isn’t the relationship type, merely just a play thing.
When she returns to New York, she tries to get the passion she felt in Riff’s arms out of her head by dating Isaac, a successful representative at Center Stage Marketing. Just when she thinks she’s forgotten Riff, she’s forced to see him again when her best friend, Lanie, ropes her into being a bridesmaid for her upcoming wedding to Black Falcon front man, Noel.
Sparks fly instantly between Aubrey and Riff when they’re forced to reunite, and suddenly she finds herself caught between the man that’s good for her and the one who completely rocks her in every way.
