I'm a big fan of Carly Phillips but I still ummmed and ahhhhed over getting this one as I have a massive to read list and wasn't sure I'd have time to read this. Well I'm pleased I pressed pre-order because yet again Carly does not disappoint.
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.
