What I liked about Rock Me:

• I loved Candace’s innocence! I loved that she was relatively clueless in her sexual nature and that she learned and explored with Brian. Typically, I don’t enjoy virgin heroines much in erotica romance because they are too naive, but Candace wasn’t stupidly annoying. In fact, there were times when I liked her more than Brian.• Which leads me to another reason why I liked this book. ..Despite being a virgin, Candane knew what she wanted from the very beginning – Brian. It was evident in the way she sheepishly made her way to the tattoo parlour in the beginning and asked for a tattoo by him. And it was evident in the way she told Brian that she wanted him on that first night together. I loved the fact that she made her feelings known. It made me love her even more!What I disliked about Rock Me:

This may come as a shocker to many, but Brian annoyed me a lot throughout this book. He believed he was unworthy to be loved by Candy, deeming himself a loser who didn’t deserve her virginity. For the first few pages it was okay, but then it started to impede the plot progression. And then the story got stuck. For a long time, I waited until Brian snapped out of his brooding phase and he does, but it took too long for me.Another thing that made me sad was the quarrelling between Evan and Brian. I loved Evan in Unleashed, so to read about him fighting with his brother made me want to give both of them a hug. Combined with Candy’s issues with her overprotective and demanding mother, it was just too much family drama for me in one book. Perhaps if it was one or the other, it would have been more easier to read.

All in all, Rock Me did rock my socks off because despite the family drama, my toes curled and my heart lurched. Brian is sexy as hell, so if you’re looking for some erotica with a little more substance, Rock Me is your best bet!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Thanks for the review. I have this book but I must admit I am not a big fan of books with virgins. However, I am intrigued.
