By: Nalini Singh
Published By: Nalini Singh
Released : Available Now
Details: Paperback from library, 374 Pages

RATING: 5 GABRIEL STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

In New York Times Bestselling author Nalini Singh’s newest contemporary romance, passion ignites between a gorgeous, sinfully sexy man who built himself up from nothing and a shy woman who has a terrible secret in her past…


Wealthy businessman Gabriel Bishop rules the boardroom with the same determination and ruthlessness that made him a rock star on the rugby field. He knows what he wants, and he’ll go after it no-holds-barred.

And what he wants is Charlotte Baird.

Charlotte knows she’s a mouse. Emotionally scarred and painfully shy, she just wants to do her job and remain as invisible as possible. But the new CEO—a brilliant, broad-shouldered T-Rex of a man who growls and storms through the office, leaving carnage in his wake—clearly has other plans. Plans that may be equal parts business and bedroom.

If Charlotte intends to survive this battle of wits and hearts, the mouse will have to learn to wrangle the T-Rex. Game on.


BOOK REVIEW:

I am going to start by saying, I enjoyed book 1. I did have several things I wanted to say about it, but didn’t in my review, because it was written by Nalini Singh.

Rock Hard is the Nalini Singh I have grown to appreciate as a writer through her Guild Hunter series and Psy-Changeling series.

Rock Addiction # 1 was a good read, but ROCK HARD is Nalini Singh back in the saddle, for me personally.

Where Rock Addiction was sex, sex, sex, sex, sex...

I can say it a few more times if you want?

Rock Hard had story line. It had depth of character for both Charlotte and Gabriel. The story didn’t ride the sex, sex, sex, sex...angle. It was true Nalini back and her words that make it hard for me to put down one of her books.

We get to see more with Gabriel Bishop.

Charlotte is so darn likable.

I simply adored Gabriel for being Gabriel.

He is so farking alpha and true to himself. He is true to his family. He has his eyes locked on Charlotte, but the chemistry was so well written.

I want me a Gabriel.

Intelligent, strong, protective, sexy...oh-my-so-sexy, but he wasn’t a man-whore. Oh he could get the ladies, but he worked Charlotte without the insta-lust, but with the sizzling chemistry. Nothing better than believable chemistry that has you rooting for the couple to get to their HEA.

Oh and all that Ms. Baird stuff...rawrrrr.

I don’t think I’ve given a contemporary romance a 5 star in a while.

This book had what I was looking for in a 5 star read.

Chemistry with two characters we got to really know and I simply got that ...more

Bravo!

A book I would read again and again.

Hell yeah! 

And I don't read books again and again.

Now I must return this book to the library because it is soooo overdue, they might be chasing me around the car park for it, which means I must go forth and purchase this baby for my bookshelf.

Shiny.
