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.
Rock Hard by Nalini Singh
Holy cow was this book good!!!! I love the Rock Kiss series but this was, hands down, my favorite book of the series. Charlotte Baird has gone through a very traumatic situation and has since then been trying to pull her life together. Gabriel Bishop is an ex rugby player turned CEO and has taken over the company Charlotte works for. Charlotte is the mouse to Bishops T-Rex and after being promoted to be his personal assistant, Charlotte slowly starts to come into herself with the help of Gabriel. For as powerful, rich and good looking as Gabriel is, I absolutely love how patient he was with Charlotte. He never pushes her more then he thinks she can handle, he knew she was his from the start and slowly and patiently made plans to get her exactly where he wanted her, by his side. I loved how they interacted with each other and how delighted Gabriel was every time Charlotte lost her temper with him, I laughed a lot throughout the story even though it was also very heartbreaking at times. I can't even begin to explain how much I loved this book. A lot of authors rush the recovery of a character through their traumatic time and that wasn't the case here. Even as the book ended, they were still working through minor things and that made everything that happened throughout the book more real and impactful. I can't wait to read what comes next.
Rock Hard by Nalini Singh is an inspirational read. Both of the main characters have obstacles they are trying to overcome. Gabriel is trying to escape being hurt by his childhood and Charlotte is trying to endure a traumatic event that has emotionally crippled her. Ms. Singh manages to take two strong characters and expose their flaws. By doing so she humanizes each character in such a way that you can't help but sympathize. You want them to find that happy ending--NO MATTER HOW OUT OF REACH IT MAY SEEM. Was gifted an ARC for an honest viewpoint.
So many emotions!!
All I can say is... WOW! This book made me stay awake till 2a.m. To finish it! I couldn't put it down. I loved T. Rex and his special way of handling Charlotte and I loved watching Charlotte blossom into a beautiful character!! Much anticipated book was a complete success for me!! Love Nalini!
