    3.5 stars  :  ROCK THE HEART is the first storyline in Michelle

    3.5 stars  :  ROCK THE HEART is the first storyline in Michelle Valentine’s contemporary, new adult Black Falcon series featuring the lives and love of the rock band Black Falcon. Rock The Heart features Noel Falcon and Lanie Vance. Our hero and heroine have been friends all of their lives and in this the relationship build up was non existent. High school would find their relationship become one of friends to lovers but Lanie’s desire to attend college and her hopes that Noel would follow were shattered when Noel chose his music. Breaking up with Noel was difficult but Lanie never realized how hard their break up would be on the only man she has ever loved.
    Rock The Heart fast-forwards four years after Lanie broke it off with Noel. There has been no communication between the two and when they are finally pushed together by circumstances and work, Lanie will discover that Noel has a few secrets. As the storyline progresses, Lanie and Noel will rekindle their passion and newfound addiction to each other, but when Noel’s secrets are finally revealed, Lanie realizes that she doesn’t know the man who has stolen her heart. Their love for one another is both powerful and heartbreaking but Lanie’s image of Noel is shattered when one of the band members reveals the truth behind the current animosity between himself and the others.
    Noel is the epitome of bad boy rocker but for all intents and purposes, it is a ruse. His need and love for Lanie overshadows the bad-boy persona and he is instantly transformed into a man who would do anything for the love of his life. He wears his heart on his sleeve and in doing so, is more likely to get his heart broken when the woman that he loves walks away a second time.
    Lanie, on the other hand, struck me as a woman with issues of control. She is the one who dumped Noel four years earlier and yet her feelings for the man continued to overwhelm her emotions and fears. And in doing so, she came across as cold and a b*tch. Trying to keep their current relationship professional, Lanie continued to play the wounded victim when she is the one who pushed Noel away. She plays a dangerous game with Noel’s feelings, continuously skirting the edge between love and hate. For this, I had a difficult time relating to or liking Lanie and as always, she was quick to assume the worst.
    ROCK THE HEART is a fast paced storyline that introduces the members of Black Falcon and in doing so sets the stage for future stories. The reader is pulled into the back stage world and personal lives of the bad boys of rock, but in doing so we will learn that everything is not all happiness and roses. Michelle Valentine writes an interesting story of one man’s need for the girl who has stolen his heart many years before and of a love that only grew stronger with the absence of the one who made your heart beat; your blood flow and your soul sing with the angels.

    Nice storyline, NEEDS SERIOUS EDITING.

    I liked the storyline of this book and the characters; I have a soft spot for rock star romances. What detracts from this book is that it sorely needs editing. It is distracting to come upon errors and it throws the reader and stops the flow of the story for them. There are a lot of indie authors out there who take pride in their work and make sure that what they produce is quality. This book should not have been published like this. Because I liked the storyline I thought I'd give the subsequent novella Rock the Band a chance. Same thing a nice story and an attempt was made to edit that work but it still contained too many errors for my liking. I won't spend money on this author again. I'd rather support those authors who care about their work.

    Just ok...

    The characters weren't well developed and the storyline wasn't original enough to keep me engaged. I ALWAYS love rock romances...but this one just didn't do it for me.
