REVIEW : Rock Hard (Rock Kiss Book 2) by Nalini Singh


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.

Oh man, oh man, oh man, I don’t think I can truly express how much I loved this book.


Charlotte and Gabriel, or T-Rex, as he is affectionately known, gave me so many power duo feels. I’m talking Oliver/Felicity (Arrow) and Harvey/Donna (Suits) type emotions. Like they are each others complete equal in life. Add in the cat and mouse chase and this is a solid read.


Gabriel is so not what I expected. I thought he was going to be the typical asshole, playboy boss that was just anti all things love and commitment. In fact, and I hope not too spoilery, he is a fucking GEM. Between his clear love and devotion for his family, his hot ink, and oh dear heavens, his filthy mouth; he is a serious force of attraction. That attraction just so happens to be aimed right at his new assistant, Charlotte.


Charlotte Baird, who in my head, looks and sounds like Felicity Smoak. She has brains, beauty, and a wonderful spirit that has unfortunately, taken some brutal hits over the years. When Gabriel enters her world she has no idea what to make of him or how to handle his flirtatious ways. After all, according to her research, she doesn’t fit his type of woman. What she does know, is that she feels good and safe when he’s around. Also maybe a little wound up.


The progression of their relationship is told so well and you feel every bit of fear and insecurity that they face. I just loved it a lot. Very much recommended great read.
