Rock Me by Carly Phillips Publication Date: September 19th

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Bodyguard Bad Boys … Sexy, Hot, and oh so protective!
A pop star in danger.
Her reluctant bodyguard.
A past they can’t deny.
Summer Michelle is on the verge of ultimate fame.
Ben Hollander has sworn off mixing business with pleasure.
But keeping his hands off of the sexy songstress is easier said than done and once the threat is neutralized, will she choose fame over love?


Her heart was pounding hard in her chest, the thunderous live applause still echoing around her and the rush of success and pride in overcoming what could have been a disaster, had her soaring. 

“Did you see that?” she asked Ben. “My earpiece went dead and I nailed it anyway!” 

“You totally did,” he said, a huge grin on his face that let her know he understood what a huge moment this was. 

She squealed in excitement and threw her arms around his neck, needing to share her exhilaration. Their gazes met and locked, the air around them suddenly crackling with tension and sexual need even Ben couldn’t deny. 

She knew what she wanted, knew there was no better time to go about it. Her gaze fell to his mouth and she pressed her lips against his. He jerked in surprise then groaned, thrust his hand beneath her hair, holding her against him as he slid his tongue past the seam of her lips and kissed her back. 

He might think he wanted to keep his distance but his body was demanding they get close, his mouth gliding back and forth over hers, razor stubble bristling her cheeks in a sweet burn and his tongue delved deep. Against her stomach, she felt the hard press of his erection, causing desire to sweep over her in waves. 

No wonder she hadn’t found a guy she wanted to keep in her life. No one could live up to Ben. 

He kissed like he wanted to possess her. 

Own her. 

Keep her.

4 Stars!

Ben Hollander met up-and-coming singer Summer Michelle a few years ago, but when she betrayed him, he went away. Now, he's asked by his boss to be her bodyguard and that's the last thing he wants, or is it?

I liked Summer, she went after what she wanted and in this case, it was Ben and getting him to listen to her explanations of what happened before. I liked Ben, too, but by god, he could be as stubborn as a mule. He could also be loyal and protective. And really, the chemistry between Summer and Ben was electric, it's no wonder they couldn't keep their hands to themselves. 

The mystery itself was well-done, the bad guy was a bit obvious, but it didn't make the story less enjoyable. 

All in all, this was a very solid start to this new series, with likable characters that I enjoyed reading about and some that I'd love to know more about, wrapped up in a steamy, intriguing romance. Very recommendable!
