    I've had this audiobook sitting on my Audible shelf for quite some time. Unable to decide what I was in the mood for, I decided to go with whichever title my finger landed on while the screen was scrolling down, and this was it. Luckily, it ended up being just what I needed!

    'Rock the Heart' was sweet, angsty and, at times, heartbreaking. Although I wasn't surprised by the big shocker in the story, it still ripped me apart. Predictable or not, I was completely absorbed in this story.

    The story centers on Lanie, aka Lane, a twenty-something trying to break into a career in advertising/marketing. She's working as an unpaid intern under a lady that is a legend in the field. When she is sent on an assignment to land the account of a famous musician, that's where things get interesting.

    Noel Falcon was her first love and best friend, right up until she unceremoniously dumped him before leaving for college. Lane couldn't imagine spending her life with a guy with no real future, chasing a pipe dream. She had plans for her life and she couldn't let some guy hold her back, no matter how much she loved him. So, imagine her surprise when four years later she's the one struggling to make her way in a competitive job market, while Noel has achieved unparalleled success.

    Their initial reunion didn't go so well, but after hearing more about how she dumped him, I'd say she had it coming. Nevertheless, he still wants to rekindle things with Lane. Noel makes a deal with Lane's boss to have her go on tour with him and the band, in exchange for the account.

    It takes no time at all for old feelings to resurface. Before long, these two are hot and heavy again. Everyone can see that they're in love. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that Noel is keeping some secrets from Lane.

    At last, the truths are revealed and Lane's world is turned upside down. I saw it coming a mile away, but it still stung. I have to admit that I shed a few tears over this one.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this one. The narration was well-done and the story was much better than I'd expected. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

    DNF at 53 %. I will refrain from rating this book.

    It's safe to say that YA & NA don't do anything for me, and I would really appreciate it immensely if every author would label their books accurately. Rock the Heart is by no means an Adult Romance. It's New Adult and if I'd've known it I wouldn't have read it in the first place. YA and NA are not my cuppa. Then again, I have to wonder why I loved the extremely young couple in Kristen Ashley's Games of the Heart so much. Maybe this was another case of KA magic, who knows?

    What I disliked
    Sadly, Rock the Heart did not rock my heart nor my world. The story and its characters have a very young-ish feel to it and it's too clichéd as well. Everything about it is romance 'lite'. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with that. However, it just happens that I need something that will really grab my interest. As I see it, I could never bond with the characters and there's a lack of chemistry between these two. Also, the pace is very slow. In fact, I started to read it on Wednesday and today is Friday and it can't hold my attention at all.

    Noel being a rock-sex icon did not resonate well with me. I'm sorry but a twenty-two-year old rock singer is by no means a rock-sex icon. Of course Noel's d@ck is so huge that she could barely wrap her hand around him. Does she have childlike hands? In addition, the sex did not wow me either. It was kinda awkward.

    Furthermore, there was this other lead singer, Striker. The author described him as being broad shouldered and wrote that he is a young Steven Tyler. But I know for sure that Steven Tyler is a skinny guy--nothing's broad about Steven.

    I have more issues but I think it's entirely needless to go into further details here.


    Overall verdict
    This is probably a case of It's not the book it's me.
    Hence, I'd like to encourage you to read it. I'm quite sure that young readers and older readers who love the YA and NA genre will enjoy Rock the Heart.

    ROCKING AWESOME FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC READ!!!!

    Okay last night I got the ARC of this freaking awesome book and this was me.....






    I was seriously stoked, jumping around, couldn't wait to read it, wait, why was I still jumping around I had the book so I calmed my arse down and got down to business......



    This is a story of Lanie & Noel once high school sweethearts, first loves, first kiss well first everything! After high school graduation Lanie decides that Noel's music isn't really gonna go anywhere and she breaks things off and leaves for college. Poor Noel, well, maybe poor Lanie because Noel makes it in the music industry and he makes it BIG. Oh yeah, Noel is known as a sex god and he is that hot, sexy, bad boy rocker...

    Cover & Title - 3 out of 5
    Favorite Line - “This next song goes out to the girl who shredded my heart without hesitation back in high school. It's called Ball Busting Bitch, and Laine this one's for you.”
    Favorite Character - Riff


    *sigh*

    I swear to fucking god i felt like i had already read this book this week! No wait a minute that was The Perfect Game, it totally reminded me of it, i cannot explain how without spoiling both books so i wont. I am not saying that either is a copy of either, i am telling you the things that pissed me off from either book are the same & it has a very important plot similarity.
    *trying to convey my frustrations through a telepathic link to you*

    Noel -

    Oh Noel you asshole. There was quite a lot to like about his character; charm, charity work, troubled past, rock star, tattoo's; piercings & the way he chased Lane. But there was also some major dislikes. He is the reason i gave this a 3 stars instead of less, even though he was an asshat he made the book.
    Noel, Justin is a pussy & even he knows the score.. look here is a message for you, from him


    Lane -

    Man, Lane i saw it coming a mile off and your were right there but missed it... how disappointing. You are really fucking irritating.
    I do not get girls that are such pushovers, i find it really insulting to the rest of the female population - stop bringing us down!


    The story -

    Did they actually forget that she was meant to be working? When did she work... seriously?
    I felt like quite a few issues were not dealt with but then there were other details included that i felt where pointless.

    I wouldn't really recommend this book as it was so..

    HELL, YEAH!!!

    You will never understand how desperate i was before that book!!!
    For days, i couldn't read a whole book and after all that dissapointment...

    ...I thought... Why don't i try a rock band book since i have a thing with these kind of stories???
    And thank God, it worked!!! I'm so happy right now!!!!

    This book made my day!!!

    Black Falcon is an absolutely amazing rock band and their leader singer, Noel Falcon, was such a georgeous dude!!!!
    But this story started a little bit strange...

    Lanie is working as an intern in a marketing company who are hired from Noel... so she is forced to meet him again after four years... You see, Noel was her highschool sweetheart and she broke his heart when he left him because he didn't fit in her perfect plan for the future... But even though the time that have pass, she never forgot him and now she is terrified to meet him again... and she's kind of right because Noel doesn't seem like the boy she left behind....

    Noel Falcon is a succesfull, cocky, arrogant bastard... Everybody thinks that he is a sexy rock God!!! He can have everything he wants... All the women thrown themselves in front of him... And even though he wants to hurt Lanie, he still feels broken inside of her loss...
    He wants her back and he is determined to get her...
    So, he arranged Lanie to get her dreamy job with the condition to travel with him and the rest of the band for two weeks...

    She will manage to be so close to him for such a long time and stick to strictly proffesional between them or she will embrace her feelings and fall to his charm????

    Well, i really enjoy that story... It was fresh and well-written...
    The sexual tension between Noel and Lanie was all around from the first moment, even though she denied to fall in his trap...

    I admit that sometimes all this useless resistance was a little bit annoying, but that wasn't a big deal for me!!!
    And when i was about to say that everything get in their right place, something really awful happened that made me really sad and angry!!!


    I liked very much Noel's character...
    I know that everybody characterised him as a cocky asshole, but when he was with Lanie we could see a kind and sweet man who was determined to do anything to regain the heart of the woman he loved...
    And his effort was extremely pleasant... I liked that he didn't give up so easily on her!!!

    Oh!!!I don't want to forget the other members of the band...
    They were amazing, but i will talk to you about them to the next books!!!
    I only tell you that i liked the fact that at the end the things get clear between Noel and Riff...
    They were like brothers and it was such a pity to provoke each other all the time and to react with such malice...

    I can't wait for Riff's book!!!

    The guy on the cover looks like he is 35+ while in the book, the guy is 22.

    I am sorry, but telling someone not to follow their dream and telling them that their dreams won't come true or are unrealistic is RUBBISH. Sorry Lane I would have slapped you hard if you ever fed me that shit.
    Also, I am sorry, but not being with the love of your life just because of a 'JOB' is horrendous and so fucking stupid.

    They were good together, the whole thing going with them was nice, cute and stuff but it missed romance of some sort. The band members were hardly mentioned.. the whole thing in the end was so bland and not spicy and drama-full. The whole rockstar thing the author got, but the rest of a few things were missing.

    I feel that the author is somewhat trying to create a part of the whole Sed and Jessica thingie from Rock Hard.The book has a lot of The Perfect Game by J. Sterling in a down low as a plot mixed with Roch Hard by Olivia Cunnings - Jack and Sed mixture.

    This entire time we could’ve been together. We’ve fought over someone else’s lie. Seriously woman? The entire time???? It was ONE WEEK! Exaggerate much?

    She calls him selfish and hence broke up with him when they were teens, when not once in the book was it ever shows that he was/is ever selfish.
    The whole charity thingie, they barely speak shit about it when thats the main reason he wanted her to work on it because she understood why it ment so much for him. I read nothing about it.
    Nothing about the daddy issues , nothing about the end with the whole Diana Swagger thingie. A lot, and I mean A LOT was missing and it made be feel blank towards the end for not having the answers.

    The story was decent types good, but a whole lot sucked towards the end, many things were left unresolved and the ending was abrupt. I don't think the 2nd book is about Lane and Noel so that leaves a few things hanging in the air.
    There was chemistry in the book, a tad bit of romance but it wasn't an erotica with smoke and sizzle.
    Overall, I was not disappointed with the book, but I just didn't enjoy it much. Something was missing.. making it bland for me. Like an omph factor or something to add the extra mile to it.

    DNF 60%

    Amateurishly written. Unlikable characters. Dull and cliched rock star plot.


  10. Jill Jill says:


    Lanie Vance is an intern at Center Stage Marketing. After earning her degree from the University of Texas, she's hoping to make a career for herself and a name at Center Stage. And the big opportunity she's been looking for has just landed in her lap. Except....

    Noel Falcon, front man for rock group, Black Falcon is wanting Center Stage to handle the marketing of his children's charity. Four years ago, he was dumped by Lanie. She believed that like her, he should further his education and give up his dreams of becoming a musician. And he hasn't forgotten.

    Both the protagonists in this contemporary romance are twenty-two. They'd had a serious high school relationship until Lanie broke it off when they were eighteen, and they went their separate ways. This is a well-written, re-united-lovers story, with a setting in the rock music world.

    With both protagonists in their early twenties, I would label Rock the Heart a New Adult romance, which I didn't realise going into this. I'm not a reader of either YA or NA romances, so take my rating with a grain of salt.

    The other three band members are introduced - twins, Trip & Tyke Douglas and Riff - and I'm guessing they will get their own stories. Noel and Lanie are likable leads and I found them both surprisingly mature, especially Noel. Usually I'm irritated no end with YA/NA angst.

    There was one thing I would have liked to see more detailed, and that was the literacy programme, Noel was establishing for children. A little more info and insight would have been great, since that was the basis of the hero and heroine coming back together.

    Despite the fact I don't read NA, this is still an enjoyable read. Recommended for those readers who enjoy young love, reunited lovers and settings in the rock music world.
