Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway- Rock Hard by Nalini Singh


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.

I love Nalini Singh and I enjoy every single book she writes. Rock Hard is the second full length novel in her Rock Kiss series books. This is the story of Charlotte and Gabe. Charlotte is Molly's best friend whom we'd met in the first book. Technically Gabe and Charlie's story starts off in the same time line as Rock Addiction and then moves forward. I liked Rock Hard.

Gabe is an ex-rugby player and currently a wealthy business man who helps companies which are drowning. When Gabe becomes Charlotte's new boss things start to get interesting. I really loved Gabe. He was a bear of a man who went after what he wanted. I loved that he was so gentle with Charlotte always putting her feelings first. His patience was outstanding and I just adored him all the more for it.

Then we have Charlie. Charlie is a mouse and that is the best way to describe how she is in the beginning of the book. Charlie has been emotionally scarred and she just can't seem to lower her guard. Especially around Gabe. I liked Charlie and as we get to see what happened with her it is understandable how deep her fear goes. 

Charlie and Gabe definitely had an attraction but both of them are very slow to act on it. This book definitely is a slow burn romance and I feel that any other kind would just not have been appropriate for Charlie. I loved the conversations Charlie and Gabe shared. They both don't change and get over their issues in a minute but take their own time.

I also loved Gabe's family. They all with appearances of Molly made for a great cast of characters. The only thing to be noted for this books is that it is a lengthy one. But I don't mind long books when its Nalini Singh and the long wait for Charlie and Gabe to get together was definitely worth it. I did miss the band members though. Rock Hard was a good read.
