Book Review: Rock Hard by Nalini Singh

Rock Hard (Rock Kiss, #2)Rock Hard by Nalini Singh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Disclaimer:  I received a copy of "Rock Hard" from Netgalley.

Nalini Singh nails it again with the second installment in her Rock Kiss series. "Rock Hard" stars Charlotte Baird, best friend of Molly from "Rock Addiction" and Gabriel Bishop, Charlotte's new boss and former professional rugby player. In fact, this story overlaps with "Rock Addiction" so you also get scenes with Molly that correlate events between the books.

On the surface, the novel involves Charlotte and Gabriel forming a close bond, becoming a couple, and hopefully living every after. But underneath the cover is a much more complex story.

Charlotte was a victim of a horrible crime, one that almost took her sanity and self-confidence. Now she battles everyday just to get out of bed and go to work.

Gabriel comes from a broken home with an abusive, alcoholic father who he never forgave.

This is a story about personal growth, about redemption and forgiveness, about learning to accept the past without tainting the future. I found myself cheering for Charlie and T-Rex (her nickname for Gabriel), watching them as they changed, hoping for their connection to turn into a friendship and then a romance.

I recommend "Rock Hard" to anyone who needs a bit of sunshine and redemption in their life.
