From USA Today Bestselling Author Nora Flite
She thought she was stepping into fame:

Meeting Drezden Halifax should have been a dream. But dreams are supposed to be sweet, fragile things that whisk you away. Not monsters crafted from hard fingers, gritty vocal cords and a voice so powerful it could tear my guts right out.

Maybe my heart, too.

Becoming the guitarist for Four and a Half Headstones was everything I needed.

Too bad the band's lead singer is doing his best to ruin everything I am.

He thought she would solve his troubles:

Lola Cooper, god damn Lola Cooper. She was the perfect guitarist, fingers that could summon a sweet song or punch a chord. She's supposed to save my band, make us come out of this tour in one piece...

But I just want to tear HER to pieces.

No one should make me feel this way. One look at her, one smell, and I knew I'd have to have her. She does things to me that scare the shit out of me. Make me want to slam her on a wall and listen to her cries: eager or fearful, it doesn't matter.

I'm a monster...
And I don't even care.

At A Glance

Pretty good for a free book. (Pssst! It’s still free! Grab it!)

The Good

Definitely a fun start to the series. I loved the set up. Drezden, lead singer of his band Four and a Half Headstones, just fired his guitarist and Lola auditions for the newly opened position. She gets it, but she might have bitten off more than she can chew with Drezden, because he is dangerous…and sexy.

This is a huge flirt-fest book. Drezden and Lola try to fight their instant attraction, but they both keep failing miserably. I loved reading about the band making music together, and Lola experiencing her suppressed dream of being a professional musician. Drezden’s turmoil over wanting Lola was kind of funny. He is such an adorable jerk about the whole thing. I really want to see what happens between these two. I like the story and I like where it’s going.

The Bad

The book ended right in the middle of the story. Like a serial would, but I don’t think this is a serial, so it was just plain annoying.  Cliffhangers I can take, but dead stop endings are no fun, ever. The length of the book, 130 pages, was odd too. It’s like a long novella I guess. *After further investigation, I think it’s one big story cut up into 4 long novellas.

The Snuggly

Lola and Drezden have pure, animal chemistry. All the dry humping and flirting was fun. Hard Body Rock is a super sexually charged book.

Final Thoughts

I am annoyed with when the book ended, but I still loved the story. Recommended.


He had a vibe that was overwhelming. It suffocated me, dared me to inhale more or to let myself pass out in a daze.


She was good. So fucking good, I was falling into the trap of her music. It wrapped me tight, tempting me to sink in and let her keep going. Lola’s eyes were closed, lower lip tucked just slightly in her teeth. She was living in that moment like it was her last. I knew that look. The body language of someone in their own creative trance. Every small movement she made was intentional. She traveled across the guitar, a land she’d been living in all her life. There was no part of the instrument, the song, that was a mystery to her.


Sometimes, even if it was the right decision, choosing music over other things made me feel hollow.
I couldn’t risk the band over a fucking pair of pretty blue eyes that turned my blood to liquid silver.
It was too reckless. For them… And for her.

    I’m not one for Rockstar romances but I like the plot of bandmates getting it on. That’s new, usually it’s either a groupie or a bored goody two shoes who wants an adventure with the badboy.

      Hmmm, that’s hard. I might get it so maybe……….Yeah, I think it’s worth it.

    I really need to try more music related books, I’ve only tried one so far. it’s the first time I hear about this one but it sounds good! thanks for the review!

    The quotes are fantastic! Sounds like a fun read. The length would be annoying, but at least there is more to the story. Thanks so much for sharing 😀
