Rock the Beat by Michelle Valentine: Review and Giveaway

Synopsis:

Twenty-two year old Holly Pearson never dreamed that while working at her father’s motorcross track she’d run into the walking, talking definition of trouble in a sexy, tattooed package- Trip Douglas, the man sent to evaluate the track for a possible investment opportunity. Holly makes no attempt to hide the fact that she despises Trip, but she learns to be civil toward him when he offers to help her land the man of her dreams.
Trip needs a break from the crazy rock-and-roll lifestyle he’s been living for the past few years. With his Black Falcon band mates settling down with marriage and babies. Trip peruses an investment opportunity in motorcross, something he’s always been passionate about. Hiding his celebrity status, Trip infiltrates the new business posing as a dirt biker training for the X-Games. The only obstacle is the owners daughter, Holly. She’s a real ball bustin’ Ice Queen, and she’ll do whatever it takes to make the deal fall through. Trip soon discovers that winning over his new enemy is the key to gaining a partnership in Mountain Time Speed Track.
Knowing he’s the expert on getting laid, Trip ropes Holly into becoming his ally by helping her score a date with the man she’s crushing on. The problem is, the more time Trip and Holly spend together, the more they uncover the undeniable attraction between them. Soon they both realize that even the best laid plans go to hell when you find you’re falling in love with the enemy.**Book THREE in the Black Falcon series. Can also be read as a stand-alone novel**

Stacia Says…

Rock the Beat is book #3 in the Black Falcon series and was just as sexy as the other books in the series.
This book follows Trip, bad boy drummer for the Black Falcon’s, as he takes a break from the band and all the craziness that comes with it. He heads to Arizona to check out a possible investment opportunity. There he meets Holly, who was recently burned by love and is coming out of a  two-year relationship; Trip is the last thing that she wants to deal with, but she has a hard time resisting him.
“I’d say in a week or so, I’ll have to keep my door bolted shut to keep you from sneaking in and having your way with me”

Trip is confident, honest, outspoken, beyond sexy, and much more of an alpha-male than I thought he was. I found Holly to be cold at first, but it is VERY understandable as to why she is like this, considering how she was treated by her ex. The chemistry between the two of them was HOT. I did think that the “I love you’s” was a little fast for me. Also, I absolutely LOVE all the boys of Black Falcon and missed catching up with them more than we got to in this book. I can’t wait for Tyke’s story, but I am also sad knowing that the end of the series will be coming soon.

Excerpt:

The thought of throwing Holly down on this counter and fucking her seven different ways from Sunday entered my head about a thousand times during our little heated discussion. Girls with attitude are hot and she’s exactly my type- a petite blonde with perfect tits. Even when she was mean as hell to me, all I could think about was kissing that rude mouth of hers.
See what I mean? I can’t function without sex- it’s a fucking drug. I’m used to getting it daily, and when you don’t get what you crave, you’ll find your fix where you can. Which is why that lay last night, even as lousy as it was, was a blessing. I was at least able to keep why I was actually here on my mind and not be completely distracted by those perky, little tits of Holly’s.
Going undercover at this dirt bike racing trace, looking at it as potential investment will be good for me. I need to branch out a bit. I’ve gotten bored with all the time off Noel and Riff have needed lately. Both of them decided to run off and start families- I get it- but that does nothing for me. I need something else to occupy my time. If I’d had to sit in the house with my brother and work on one more song I swear to God I would’ve gone nuts. Noel and Riff are killing me with their need for all the personal time off.
What about me? What about my needs?
