My Review

Rock Hard by Nalini Singh
Rock Kiss #2
Contemporary Romance

Though this is a part of the Rock Kiss series, it does not involve the Schoolboy Choir band and I’m kind of happy for that. I’m not a big fan of Rock Star romances, and though I liked the previous two, they’re really not my favorite tropes. No musicians in this one, but there was still a lot of passionate angst. This whole series feels more like Nalini Singh’s early work with Harlequin; not to say that’s a bad thing, just different than what I’m used to from her Psy/Changeling series.

I liked Charlie’s spunk and that even when she was struggling, she was determined to work through her nightmares and flashbacks. It took her awhile to catch onto Gabriel’s flirting and teasing and to accept that he wanted her. Gabriel was great at going at Charlie’s pace and finding ways to ease her pain. He appreciated Charlie’s brains, and her sass, and her sweet nature. They were really cute together and I especially loved the scenes with Gabriel’s family. However, I was kind of annoyed with all the names Gabriel would call Charlie’s (not)boyfriend/friend, Ernest. It just came across as petty and that’s not something I see as attractive or even fitting for the rest of Gabriel’s personality.

I’ve heard rumors that Singh plans to write about Gabriel’s brothers, and though I don’t plan to continue reading the books about Schoolboy Choir, I will read any that come out about the Bishop/Esera Clan.

4 out of 5 stars

Book Details

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.
