Mikky's Reviews! Rock Hard, Rock Kiss #2 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.

ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange of an honest review.

I can honestly say that this book was better than the previous two. 

Gabriel can be described as every woman's wet dream. An ex rugby player, he has the perfect body and, apparently, he knows how to use it since he has a new woman in bed almost every night.

But that is not all he has going on for him. He is very intelligent and a shrewd business man who knows what he wants and how to get it in the boardroom and outside of it.

Charlotte hides behind baggy clothes and what might be considered a weak personality. She has her reasons but when her and Gabriel meet, everything changes.

He sees behind her facade and wants to bring out the real Charlotte. Even if he has to wait until she is ready, no matter how long it may take. That will be quite an interesting process and very ... combustive. Charlotte might be shy and quiet but she's not about to leave T-Rex walk all over her without retaliation.

I really, really liked this book. 

I am well aware that Nalini writes other genres beside PNR/UF but when I hear her name I think Guild Hunter. Can't help it. This was completely different and she didn't disappoint.

There's a lot a humor and quite a few steamy scenes. The characters are well developed, smart, captivating and you'll fall in love with them from the beginning.

I really hope there will be other books in the series. I recommend.

Happy Reading!!
