Rock The Heart by Michelle Valentine (Black Falcon #1)

Book description from goodreads.com:

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.

My rating:

3 1/2 stars

My review:

Oh Lanie, if you were real I would SMACK YOU upside your annoying little head!  If it hadn’t been for Noel, Aubrey and the other band members, I would have stopped reading this.  Lanie is REALLY annoying and insecure (IMO).  Noel was super genuine in telling her his feelings and what he wanted, and she played him like his guitar.

So this book is about rock star Noel, who 4 years ago was dumped by Lanie, the only girl he ever loved.  They have a chance reunion and Noel uses his power to manipulate Lanie back into his life.  I really LOVED Noel.  He was a stand up guy, not a typical rock star, but he was so genuine.  I never felt that anything he said was fake or untrue.  He alone is the only reason I will read the novella, since it’s told from his POV.  I also really liked his band mates, Riff and the twins, and the next novel is about Riff and Lanie’s best friend Aubrey.  I liked Aubrey and thought she and Riff were interesting together.

I felt the story was a little long, and it could have more to do with my sheer annoyance with Lanie, but overall, this was a good book and I will read more in the series.

My recommendation:

Read it, especially if you like hot rockers.
