Rock On is a second-chance romance that tells the hot hot story of Summer and Ben. Summer Michelle is an up and coming pop star who is being targeted by someone unknown because of her involvement in a popularity contest to be the latest big thing - Jade Glow's - opening act. Her competition is an old rival from Summer's reality TV show days - Tawny Renee - and due to the threats on her life, Summer is also revisited by another familiar face from her TV days; none other than old flame and now her new bodyguard, Ben Hollander.
Summer describes Ben best:
"Jet-black tousled hair, piercing blue eyes, strong jaw, and full lips she’d once experienced gliding over her body, bringing her to a fevered state of arousal, and kissing her like she’d never been kissed before. In their short time together, Ben Hollander had ruined her for all other men"
Ben has bounced back after being fired from his job after his previous steamy affair with Summer. Ben doesn't want to go there again - especially now he is tasked with keeping Summer safe - but the sexual tension and attraction between the two of them is high. But having been burned once, and with family issues as well, Ben is desperately trying to keep things professional.
Despite not being a hugely lengthy story, Carly Phillips manages to deliver well-rounded characters in both Summer and Ben. They display real emotions, have genuine backgrounds as well as having a real connection - add in Carly's ability to include sexual chemistry that is off the charts, and Rock Me is an absolutely fantastic book.
I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. The glimpses we got of some of Ben's colleagues has got me ready to find out more.
"You consume my thoughts, and my body craves only you."
3 1/2 stars.

He is her bodyguard.
She is a pop star.
If she goes to tour will he go around?
Summer's world was rocked by Ben before all heck broke loose. Despite their abrupt end, she always saw him as the one that got away.
Now having to be near each other 24/7, can they a find a way to get over their past and find a way to work together? And more importantly, will they embrace their desire and build a future?
Rock Me is a fun, sexy, intriguing story about second chances and love conquering all. Once I cracked open this book, I couldn't put it down. I love how Ben takes his job seriously and try as he might, he can't deny the connection between them. And when Ben promises to keep Summer safe, you know it's a promise he'll keep. And when Ben promises out of the world pleasure, you know he'll deliver every naughty, dirty desire Summer has ever imagines.
The intrigue behind the reason that brought these two back together is thrilling. When you think you know what's about to happen someone comes along to leave you scratching your head.
I highly enjoyed Rock Me and can't wait to see what Carly bring us with the rest of this series. It's saucy, provocative, and entertaining. So if you need a bodyguard that will keep you safe and love you like you're the most important person in the world, then I recommend you run and pick up Rock Me today.
What a hot and fantastic start to this new series by Carly Phillips! Rock Me is the first book in the new Bachelor Bad Boys series and it's hooked me right away and I did not want to put this book down!
Ben Hollander is a bodyguard who works for Alpha Security. He works with a group of people that are more like family than just colleagues. When new assignments are handed out, Ben's boss knows that he isn't going to be thrilled with his new charge, but he was the only one available for the job. When Ben learns that he is going to be guarding someone from his past, it's clear very quickly that he's not sure how he's going to handle it.
Summer Michelle is on the verge of having everything she wants. She could be the opening act on tour for one of the biggest artists in the music business, but she has to beat out another woman who she's been competing with for years. The two were on the same reality show years ago and the competitive spirit of the other woman doesn't seem to have lessened over the years. While Summer is being threatened, she doesn't really understand the severity until her new bodyguard, and a huge part of her past, walks back into her life.
Needless to say things didn't end well between Summer and Ben the first time around when their short affair ended when someone ratted them out and Ben was fired from his job. What is very clear once they are around one another again is that they both feel the same way they did years ago. They are insanely attracted to one another and it doesn't seem those feelings are going away. With Ben in a similar position this time will he be able to put his feelings ahead of his job or will duty win in the end?
I enjoyed the characters in this book, the pace of the story was great and I also liked all of the supporting characters. I'm definitely interested in what is going to happen with the other members of Alpha Security and if they are all going to get their happily ever afters!
I would highly recommend checking out this new series. You won't be sorry!
Rock Me is a short, sweet, Hot and SEXY, full of suspense book to read. Summer is a up and coming pop star that has been starting to get threats. Things start happening to her and now she needs a bodyguard. In walks Ben, her new bodyguard and things heat up between them. Ben tries to stay ahead of the person that is threatening Summer and I can’t say more, well not can’t but, won’t.
I am looking forward to the next book in this Body Guard series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Summer Michelle is a sexy up and coming rock star in need of protection and Ben Hollander is strong, smart and sexy alpha male bodyguard hired by the studio to protect Summer. Determined never to mix business and pleasure again (a lesson Summer taught him) he is not so sure he can be her bodyguard again. Sparks fly, attraction is fought, loved every emotionally gripping twist in this romantic adventure. Looking forward to more Bodyguard Bad Boys.
A couple of weeks ago Carly Phillips offered one of her older books for free on most websites, and I jumped at the one-click opportunity. With Rock Me, Ms. Phillips tells a sweet, second chance story that I enjoyed.
Summer Michelle is on the verge of getting her big break after her stint on a reality music show. From an early age, Summer and her parents work for her big break. Now Summer is so close she can taste it. However, she is also receiving threats that make the sponsors concerned. For her safety, they contract with Alpha Security for protection.
Ben Hollander is assigned the job which doesn’t make him happy. He lost his last position the reality show because of his fling with Summer was against the rules. Unfortunately, Summer watched him walk away, which only fans his anger and determination to never get emotionally involved with a woman again. He watched his mother break his father; it is what women do in his mind. Unfortunately, when he is close to Summer, his heart doesn’t listen to his head, and he soon remembers everything he likes about this woman.
Rock Me was first published in 2017. I read many of Carly Phillips’ books over the years. Her ability to create characters with dynamic personalities that jump off the page makes me come back for more. Ben and Summer are delightful characters. They are both passionate and determined to advance their careers while questioning their personal choices and hurting inside because of past events.
I love the secondary characters too. I’m a little surprised that there are only two books in the Bodyguard Bad Boy series. There are so many support characters that intrigue me. I read the second book a year or so ago. There is an excerpt at the end of Rock Me that triggered my memory. I hope Ms. Phillips will come back to this series in the future.
There is a little suspense, but honestly, it is easy to figure out who is behind the threats. There is a bit extra added to the intrigue, some family issues all around, but Rock Me is more romance and righting wrongs than anything else. If you have the opportunity to get this book for free or whether you pay the full price, I’m sure you will enjoy Ben and Summer’s story.
