Overview

New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Black Falcon Series

Twenty-year-old Holly Pearson never dreamed that while working at her father’s motocross track she’d run into the walking, talking definition of trouble in a sexy, tattooed package—Trip Douglas, the man sent to evaluate the track for a possible investment opportunity. Holly makes no attempt to hide the fact she despises Trip, but she learns to be civil toward him when he offers to help her land the man of her dreams.

Trip needs a break from the crazy rock-and-roll lifestyle he’s been living for the past few years. With his Black Falcon band mates settling down with marriage and babies, Trip peruses an investment opportunity in motocross, something he’s always been passionate about. Hiding his celebrity status, Trip infiltrates the new business posing as a dirt bike rider training for the X-Games. The only obstacle is the owner’s daughter, Holly. She’s a real ball bustin' Ice Queen, and she’ll do whatever it takes to make the deal fall through. Trip soon discovers that winning over his new enemy is the key to gaining a partnership in Mountain Time Speed Track.

Knowing he’s the expert on getting laid, Trip ropes Holly into becoming his ally by helping her score a date with the man she’s crushing on. The problem is, the more time Trip and Holly spend together, the more they uncover the undeniable attraction between them. Soon they both realize that even the best laid plans go to hell when you find you’re falling in love with the enemy.


**Book THREE in the Black Falcon series. Can also be read as a stand alone novel.**

    Love it

    This book is so good. It's romantic, funny, hot, drama everything I like in a story but wow what an ending. How can u just end the story like that if u can read it as a stand alone. It should have a better ending that's wat completes a book.

    5 Tripping Stars Michelle Valentine does it again with Rock

    5 Tripping Stars




    Michelle Valentine does it again with Rock the Beat. This time around we get Trip's story. Now of all the Black Falcon members I was not sure how much I would like Trip, but let me just say...I love him. He definitely is the bad boy, tatted up alpha male rocker. Enough descriptives for you?? Well it fits him. What I didn't expect to encounter was the sweet loving side of Trip. I also couldn't picture, or maybe I don't remember Trip being hurt in the past. Oh yeah..I am a huge Trip fan now.




    Making the book great was the balance that Holly provides. It is great because she is a solid heroine with some of her own past issues. I love that Trip wasn't something entirely new to her, she already loves tattoed bad boys. Finding one to love her though...that was what she needed.




    Other things I love about this story...
    1. How do you not love Max as a bestfriend
    2. The side story of her dad and how Trip is so helpful with that
    3. I love when the drama hits in the story, you know, the turning point where you wonder if the couple will make it through..well I love that Valentine never draws that out. It gets addressed and we move o from there.
    4. The sexy moments in this story..yeah, they are just HOT. Love the bathroom scene and Trips cockiness.








    So as I am sure you can tell I love Valentine's writing and I love this series. Some may critique that there are some grammatical errors but literally, I could care less because the story is just that good.




    Oh and what has me even more excited---first 3 Chapters of the next book are included and let me just say...I need that book now. Can't wait to get some more Lane and Noel!!!

    Rock my beat!!

    Love love loved it!!!!! Like always never disappointed!! This book was freaking awesome...Trip is a whole other level. These Falcon boys are the best and need to find me one...ASAP!! Got to meet Michelle and she is a down to earth chick...my favorite author at this point.
    Loved how sincere Trip really was and when he finally met Holly I loved how was able to find love again. I'm a little taken back from the news he got from his brother but I guess we just have to wait and see what that's all about. I really like how the book ended, would really love it that their story is more of finding who they are together and not marry them off. Overall I loved it and continue to be a hardcore fan.

    This Author is Amazing

    This author is amazing and while this story was shorter than I expected, she packed a tremendous punch in the pages. Trip’s story was as hot as you’d expect it to be and now I can’t wait to see what her brother will be up now that he is thinking of leaving Black Falcon. Incredible writing and I look forward to her next work like I do all the others. Love this series!

    I loved this book. Michelle A. Valentine has done it again. Trip is awesome. My only complaint is the ending didn't just stopped. It really wasn't an ending.

    Trip and Holly

    I felt for Holly..her story was so sad and the things she gave up to be with her dad just killed me. Trip coming into the picture helped in so many ways. He came in to help with no gain in mind. He just wanted to save something. I hope we get finish to their story. I have to know!!!! Please dont make us wait too long!

    Trip's Story: ROCK THE BEAT is the October 2013 instalment in Mi

    Trip's Story: ROCK THE BEAT is the October 2013 instalment in Michelle A Valentine’s contemporary rock genre romance series-Black Falcon. Although this is the third full-length storyline, Rock The Beat can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend reading in order to understand the references and previous storyline characters.
    Rock The Beat finds Black Falcon drummer Trip Douglas looking to invest in a moto-cross business during his down time from the band.  While Noah and Riff are spending time with their young families, Trip discovers a little gem of a sports venue needing a quick influx of cash and Trip is ready, willing and able. But first, Trip goes in under cover as a representative for the investor hoping to learn the truth behind the business’s current drop in productivity and cash flow. Enter Holly Pearson, the owner’s daughter, and the young woman with whom Trip will fall in love.
    The relationship is slow to build as Trip and Holly meet under drunken circumstances and the ensuing days to weeks will find Trip trying to make amends for his initial behavior.  But Holly’s heart has been broken by a former love and Trip represents everything that Holly does not want-especially when he has lied about his identity and about whom he actually represents.
    The secondary characters are colorful including Holly’s best friend Max; her ex boyfriend and her ailing parents.  There is definitely a need for a story or novella revolving around Max and one that Michelle has quietly introduced through a letter in the storyline.
    There is limited interaction with the former storyline characters and Black Falcon members until the final few pages of the novel. But saying that, there is also a building story for Trip’s twin Tyke who has been growing restless while the rest of the band members fall in love and take time to smell the roses.  If you were looking for a storyline involving music and tours, Rock the Beat takes a different path.
    Michelle A Valentine has written a story for Trip that will find the bad boy drummer tamed by a twenty year old woman who has had her fair share of hard times and broken promises.  Rock The Beat is a storyline of heartbreak and sorrow; betrayal and redemption; love and letting go.  It is also a story with a happily ever after for now and one that I hope will continue into the next instalment.

    Oh, Trip...I've been waiting for you!! And it is official. I'm i

    Oh, Trip...I've been waiting for you!! And it is official. I'm in love with another Black Falcon hottie! It started with Noel, then Riff, and now Trip...I've loved them all (Tyke, you're up next!). In Rock the Beat, Michelle Valentine brings us Trip's and Holly's story and what a fun, sexy read it is! This was unique from the others in that it took place entirely at a motocross track instead of on the road with the band. I missed some of the interactions with the others but I also loved the focus primarily on Trip and Holly.

    Holly is taking a break from college to help her dad with the track and also to stay close to her boyfriend. She's a tough, strong, hold-nothing-back kind of girl! I loved her sass! Trip shows up with the possibility of investing in the track but is doing so without letting on who he really is. It was fun getting into Trip's naughty head through the use of the dual POVs. Both POVs were distinct and the transitions smooth with switching back and forth. The chemistry between these two is definitely hot and there is a sweet, almost down-to-earth quality to this story that I adored.

    Along with the main story of Holly and Trip, there were some very tender moments between Holly and her Dad and Holly and her best friend, Max. I also loved the way the connection was handled with Trip and the band through Tyke.

    Overall, I continue to be a groupie for the Black Falcon band! You can find me in the front row waiting for a drum stick to be thrown my way by the sexy Trip!

    I really love this series but please get an editor or proof reader. There are so many mistakes that it interferes with the flow of the story. But I still recommend the series.
