“Without a doubt, ROCK HARD is my favorite book in this series….The chemistry between Gabriel and Charlotte is on fire.” ~ Under the Covers

Why am I even surprised!?!?!  Nalini Singh is one of my absolute favorite writers and she continues to prove that with every book she writes.  Her characters make you care for them instantly and connect with their stories.  ROCK HARD is a perfect example of that because I wanted to devour the whole thing, and I did!

Stepping away from rock stars in a rock star series may seem like a weird thing to do, but this book about T-Rex was highly anticipated by many.  I know I was salivating for it.  I am here to tell you one thing.  T-Rex will own your heart.  He’ll take a bite and you will want more!  This book met and exceeded all my expectations.  I was giddy with excitement reading every single word and highly disappointed when I got to end. Much to quickly.

The chemistry between Gabriel and Charlotte is on fire.  Starts out with the banter and the bickering.  She’s mousy and he’s overbearing.  But then we see that change in her and there’s nothing better than seeing her take charge and stand up to T-Rex.  Even when inside she may still be a little scared of what may happen.  The dynamics of their relationship are amazing.  Job very well done Ms. Singh.  And yes, the sexual chemistry?  Off the charts!

Even though Gabriel is a sports star (retired) he doesn’t fit the sports romance hero mold.  He’s a billionaire, but he doesn’t fit the billionaire hero standard either.  He’s unique, he’s different, he’s perfect, and everything I know Ms. Singh knows what to do with a hero.  Have I mentioned how much I love him?  I may be gushing a bit.

The story line in this book run a bit parallel to ROCK ADDICTION and we see some of the things we missed when Molly was seeing some of the T-Rex interactions with her best friend Charlotte.  It filled in all the gaps I had and answered some questions as to what was going on there, that were the reason I was so antsy to get to their story.

Without a doubt, ROCK HARD is my favorite book in this series.  It rocked my world….hard. Heh pun intended.  Now gimme more!

About Nalini Singh

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

This series caught my eye in the beginning, but I haven’t had a chance to get to it. T-Rex and Mouse’s story does sound enticing.

This is in a way very different from her other work, but I think that’s what makes it exciting. Seeing how we don’t have to put an author in a specific corner.
