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.

As a big fan of rockstar stories I couldn't start reading this book fast enough and was then left screaming when the end (for now) quickly followed. This is an engrossing tale that's fast-paced and oozes sexual tension from the moment Lola and Drezden meet. Surrounding them is an enticing and colorful cast of secondary characters amidst the vividly depicted sometimes gritty world of rock 'n roll. Into this gritty and male-dominated world comes Lola who has been traveling with the band as a member of her brother's road crew. When the opportunity arises to try out for a spot playing with her favorite band her brother wholeheartedly encourages her knowing she's immensely talented. Lola's chosen in a nail biting audition but her instant attraction to Drezden makes their band practices difficult and she must make her mind go to a dark place in her past to remain focused on the music instead of Drezden. This is our first inkling that Lola's had some bad things happen to her in the past but we never learn exactly what.....yet. Outwardly Lola's exuberant with an intense love and respect for music and she's like a breath of fresh air to this rather dark music group. She's drawn to Drezden but struggles throughout this story to not let things go further as we readers feel unrelenting foreboding surrounding her and sense these unknown issues are holding her back. Drezden is a super sexy, dominant man with a lot of stress weighing on him. He demands perfection from those around him and is enthralled by Lola's talent as well as Lola herself. He's not a very charming man but you sense there's more to him hiding below the surface. He shows flashes of compassion towards Lola as well as encouraging her to be the best he knows she can be in his own gruff way. He too has darkness surrounding him and it's keeping him from claiming Lola, though being around her is like placing a moth before the flame with scenes full of sexual tension. Not matter how gruff he appears I still found myself enthralled by him and can't wait to dig deeper into his past. This story is completely engrossing as we see the action unfold through both Lola and Drezden's thoughts. This dual point of view gave us a greater feel of their personalities and gives hints of their dark pasts and keeps us on the edge of our seats waiting to find out what made them who they are today. The secondary characters also leapt off the page and have me longing to learn more about them as well. Overall this story is a wonderful appetizer just hinting at the powerful and dark emotions yet to come. I look forward to these two shadowed souls acting on their feelings as the sexual tension escalates in this atmospheric and well-written novella. If you're looking for an exciting new writing talent in the world of rockstars then look no further than Ms. Flite!

Book was extremely short for what I paid for it. Not worth it.

Hard Body Rock (Body Rock, #1) by Nora Flite 4 out of 5 star Holy Moly I want a piece of Drezden Halifax and his green eyed intensity all to myself! Four and a Half Headstones has two days to find a guitarist and Drez is looking for perfection. Lola Cooper is a 19 year old guitar goddess who just doesn't realize her powers yet, on the guitar or on the lead singer of her favorite group! Hard Body Rock is a fantastically deep and intense read for such a short book. The depth of character and sexual tension accomplished in so few pages is truly the sign of a great Author! The entire band and a few side characters come to a good stage of physical and emotional development and at the end you genuinely want to continue the story and find out what happens next! Ms. Flite really knows how to concentrate what she writes, I would be sooo intrigued to see her write a full length story! My only drawback is the cliff hanger and that's the reason for the lack of the final star, otherwise this is a highly enjoyable, highly recommended book! **A complimentary copy was given in exchange for an honest review** Pepper, My Secret Book Spot

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Please know that while this isn't a long book, it will literally grab your attention within the first two paragraphs; you won't remember to exhale until this story has released you from its vise-like grip when you see those four dreaded words: "End of Book One" Once you see those four words, you should already have book two lined up in your queue next, because you won't want to let the downtime in between linger for too long. I love the dual POV narration in the story; Nora Flite managed to capture both Drez's and Lola's feelings equally, but without making either MC sound either too self-serving, or weak. We get to experience Lola's nervousness when she plays with the band for the first time in practice, how she saw Drez's reaction to her mistakes and what she does to handle the situation. At the same time, we really get to see the effect Lola has on Drez (but he refuses to let it show around anyone else). On top of that, throw in sexual tension and you've got one helluva story! I can't wait to learn more about both Lola's and Drez's backstory, and how the situation with Lola's brother Sean plays out. I highly recommend this series!

I received this book as a ARC for a honest review.... This is a Novella so it is a short book, however there is a lot to this. I really enjoyed and can't wait to start book 2 in this series.. If you like Rock Star's you will like this. Drez is the lead singer for the group Four and a Half Headstones. After the lead guitarist continues to screw up he is booted from the back leaving them on tour now short a guitarist.. As they as auditioning for a new guitarist Lola is encouraged to try by her brother who was rejected 2 years earlier. There is an attraction between Lola and Drez however, Lola has had a messed up childhood and Drez just seems to think he is too dark for anyone. Seems there will be a lot more to them and I can't wait to find out..
