Rock Your Soul is the second book in the Geek Kink series by Sara Brookes. After reading the first book in the series, I could not wait for this book to come out. I really liked the first book and had high hopes for this book. This book absolutely lived up to them. Even though this book is part of a series it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.
Beth is a strong character that pulled herself out of a tough and sadistic Dom. She was strong enough to realize that while she still enjoyed the lifestyle she needed to know more. I loved that while she was a disk jockey from Nashville she worked not for county music stations but Alternative Rock stations. She broke a lot of traditional submissive molds.
Ryan is a mysterious and intriguing character. He surprised me every time I thought I had him figured out. I liked that that he helped Beth embrace her submissive side as well. I really enjoyed that Beth helped Ryan deal with his past.
The chemistry between Ryan and Beth is explosive. They are a good match in and out of the bedroom. I loved how Ryan showed Beth that she could trust him not just in the bedroom but out of it as well. The sex scenes were very hot.
The only thing that would have made this story better was if it was if the author connected this book to the prior one in a better way. Overall, this was an enjoyable addition to the series. I cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out. There are so many fascinating characters in this series there are so many characters to choose from.

I love, love, LOVE this book! Oh my gosh wow, Rock Your Soul is not what I expected. It is so much BETTER. I was hooked from the first page. I thought with the series called Geek Kink I was going to be reading a nerdy BDSM story. Instead what I got was a sweet erotic story filled with fantastic characters. The secondary characters are a welcome addition to the story line. I found myself so lost in the story that I was caught complete unaware when a sinister aspect reared it ugly head. Sorry, I can't say anymore with giving a spoiler away.
Ryan and Beth are to beautiful souls each damaged and tortured from their pasts. The fact that Beth is still wanting to be in the lifestyle after suffering at the hands of torturous Dom, speaks volumes of her strength. Ryan is just the perfect caring Dom. The care he puts into helping Beth is so touching and beautiful. Despite all this caring for each other there is also the sexual aspect. And oh yes, they sex is explosive. From their first interaction as a D/S you know these two people are made for each other.
Author Sara Brookes has done a outstanding job creating this wonderful series. I haven't read the first book but have every intent of starting the series from the beginning. Now the tortuous wait for the next book has begun. Rock Your Soul is most definitely a book worth reading.
I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.
