Ben gets a job protecting Summer for the second time. They have a seriously hot past from the first time he was her bodyguard. Now he is trying to keep his hands and other body parts off of her. Summer knows that everything went wrong for her and Ben the last time. She never thought she would get this chance to tell him the truth about what happened. Can he ever trust her again? This smoking hot story was such an easy read. I devoured each page like it was my last! I cannot wait to read more in the Bodyguard Bad Boys series. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

Normally, I like Carly Phillips, but this book is complete crap. Is she under contract to slam out these 130-150 page "novels" as fast as she can? It seems like that is the direction the industry is going in lately, and I can't imagine that makes the readers very happy. I don't like paying full price for what amounts to a poorly written short story. That said, this book is weak, full of holes and short on character development. Don't waste your money on this one.

The entertainment industry is not for the faint of heart. Summer found out fast that there are no best friends when they can be your competition. Now that she is facing the same competitor that really stabbed in the back last time, she has to be careful. Tawny is out to beat her at any cost. Tawny's manager Michael is always friendly and professional... but can Summer really trust anyone? Death threats, vandalism, and more have only scared everyone involved in this competition for the opening act of superstar singer Jade Glow. So, this is how Ben becomes her bodyguard. He has been her protector before which resulted in a scandal. Can they possibly keep their hands off each other and remain professional? I really enjoy a story where romance is combined with a mystery to be resolved. When lives are in danger it gets even more exciting. I know, I am a thrill seeker that way. I started reading this book and did not put it down until the very end. I NEEDED to know who was the culprit and how Ben and Summer were going to handle all this turmoil. Definitely, recommend this book for all of you who love to sit at the edge of your chair while reading a book. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I thank the author for sharing a copy with me.

I love new series from authors I love reading. This is another one that does not disappoint. Ben is another sexy alpha male. Summer is a hot rock star. When the two come together you get nothing but sparks. Ben and Summer are not meeting for the 1st time. No, they not only have met before but have also been together. Unfortunately, there relationship ended on a bad note, a very bad note. Ben is “back on the case” of being Summer’s bodyguard. But with all that has happened in their past can they rekindle and forgive or will this be another “what once was”. Guess you will have to read it to find out. But trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Sweetly sexy, heart pounding action, emotionally engaging, fast paced second chance romance. Perfect late night in bed reading that will give you sweet dreams. Summer Michelle is a sexy up and coming rock star in need of protection and Ben Hollander is strong, smart and sexy alpha male bodyguard hired by the studio to protect Summer. Determined never to mix business and pleasure again (a lesson Summer taught him) he is not so sure he can be her bodyguard again. Sparks fly, attraction is fought, loved every emotionally gripping twist in this romantic adventure. Looking forward to more Bodyguard Bad Boys.

The forbidden is always such a temptation! They never thought they’d see each other again … and yet here they are in a similar situation to the one that blew up in their faces previously. A sexy read with a powerful reunion! It’s hard to tear yourself away … and I was left really looking forward to more in the series! Up and coming pop star Summer Michelle finds herself in need of a bodyguard as she sets out on a thrilling journey that just might be the break she’s been hoping for … but she never expects HIM to show up! Bodyguard Ben Hollander is at a high point in his career with a great bunch of colleagues surrounding him, but he gets the shock of his life when he finds out who his new assignment is going to be. He’s come a long way since the past they shared, and he’s no longer willing to mix business with pleasure … or so he thinks!

I was so excited to start a new series by Carly Phillips. Rock Me is the newest book coming out in the Bachelor Bad Boys books. I am a huge Carly fan and I was loving hard on Ben. He is my new favorite bodyguard and I wanted more when the book ended. Ben is everything I love. Alpha...Check, Dominating....Check, Kick ass with all the glory of muscles...check, and my favorite SEXY AS SIN....Check Check Check!!!! He is a bit damaged and guards his heart with steel walls. Fate brought him face to face to the woman he sworn he was over and done with from the past. Before Summer's POV came in, I was not liking her so much. I thought that she had crushed Ben just to get ahead in the singing industry. Then she came in and stunned me. She was really sweet. She is brave and not afraid to be upfront, especially with Ben. She was a match made for Ben and even though he was burned in the past, he started to embrace the future. These two made a lot of chemistry happen behind closed doors that were too HOT to go into detail in this review. You will get all the feels and swoon as much as I did. I love Rock Me. Carly did a great job with the story. I am excited to continue on with this series as there was a lot more yummy bodyguards that need attention ;)

ARC for honest review with no compensation Rock Me is the 1st book in a new series by Carly Phillips and again she did not disappoint! Awesome read! ! Ben Hollander and Summer Michelle have a history that got Ben fired from his job years ago. Now he works for a security/bodyguard company and when given his assignment he find he has to protect Summer again….wanting out of this detail is not happening as there is no one else available. Can Ben protect Summer and keep his heart out of the equation or will they find that their history will bring them full circle for a second chance at love and a HEA???

Rock Me is the first book in the new Bodyguard Bad Boys from Carly Phillips. I was once again pulled into the story from the very first page and devoured this book. I adore a second chance romance, and Rock Me was done so very well. I loved Summer Michelle from the moment we met her and broody and sexy Ben Hollander made me swoon a bit from the very beginning. Seriously loved they had a past and Ben was hired to be Summer's bodyguard. I felt instant chemistry between these two characters and couldn't wait for them to act upon their mutual attraction. While Ben was hired to keep Summer safe, and there were elements of suspense around who was behind the threats on Summer, I felt like this story was really more of a straight up romance. I had a pretty good idea early on who was behind everything, just not why. However, I loved how being back together brought Summer and Ben together as a couple really quickly. They just worked so well as a couple for me. I loved they really were friends as well as lovers and began to confide in each other about family issues and both wanted to help the other out with said family issues. The sex scenes between Ben and Summer were smoking hot! I loved that Summer had no problems going after what she wanted when it came to Ben and he was powerless to resist his attraction for long. I also loved the fun and tender scenes between them. I feel like I'm gushing about them as a couple, but they just gave me all the feels and I loved seeing two such strong characters find a way back to one another. Rock Me was an awesome start to the new Bodyguard Bad Boys series from Carly Phillips. She nailed the second chance romance from their very first encounter. I loved seeing Summer and Ben find their way back to each other. I love books in a series and can't wait to see each of the sexy bodyguards fall in love with each new story.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Typical romance with a few twists throughout. After being introduced to the characters, I couldn't help but fell sad for Ben. He'd already lost Summer once. Now, they find each other again only to know that there is a definite end to their relationship. No matter what they say, they can't keep their hearts out of it. Ben doesn't want to be the reason Summer doesn't live her dream so he gives up his dream and lets her go. Obviously, it's a HEA, but I have some questions: what happened to Ben's father? Did he get sober or did Ben have to completely cut him off? What happened with Summer's relationship with her parents? Did they rejoin as a family or continue on their separate ways? And finally, what happened with Tawny Renee? Did you succeed or fade away? Did Michael go to jail or beat the charges and continue his slimy ways? Overall, it was a quick read that had a happy ending. Looking forward to Tempt Me.

Ben Hollander knows better than to mix business with pleasure but once again he is assigned to guard Summer Michelle his one true weakness. Summer has been receiving threats and Ben is just there to make sure nothing happens to her. Now can he keep his hands off her this time around. These two chemistry is off the charts! Ready for Austin's book next!!

I totally loved reading Rock Me, the first book in Carly Phillips new Bodyguard Bad Boys series. This is a second chance story between bodyguard Ben Hollander and pop star Summer Michelle. Summer’s stardom is poised on the brink as she competes to be the opening act for a rock star. Threats have been made against the two competitors and Ben is assigned to be the bodyguard for Summer and to keep her from danger. Part of this assignment is a déjà vu situation since Ben lost a previous bodyguard position after getting involved with Summer when she was on televised competition. However, this time around it is so much more difficult for Ben to keep his hands off of her. Despite being a few years later, these two continue to have off the chart chemistry. These two need figure out how to continue their relationship if Summer wins the competition and Ben is no longer her bodyguard. Ms. Phillips is a wonderful storyteller which she demonstrated in this story. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting it down. This is a great book with plenty of sex, romance and suspense. I highly recommend this book to other readers and am looking forward to the next book in this series, Tempt Me. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

'ROCK ME' by Carly Phillips is the First Book in a New Series called "Bachelor Bad Boys". This is the story of Ben Hollander and Summer Michelle. Ben was Summer body guard about 4 years ago and they had a affair/relationship. Which is against Ben's company's rules for their bodyguards. So he was fired when word leaked about them. Ben assumed it was Summer that had told and gotten him fired. So he up and left her and never took any of her calls. Now 4 years later Ben works for another company where he is more like family group and he values them giving him a second chance. When this company gets a contract to be a body guard to Summer, Ben is the only man left to go. Summer is shocked to see Ben again after he up and left her. Ben wouldn't even take her calls so she could apologize for what happen to him. Summer is pretty sure that Tawny Renee a girl she though was her friend turned him in and gave news of their affair. Ben has a pretty big chip on his shoulder toward Summer and tries to make this just a job between them. But neither can forget how they felt together. This was a great second chance at love story! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Who wouldn't want a hot and sexy bodyguard? How about if that bodyguard was someone from your past that you couldn't get off your mind but you weren't sure how he truly felt about you? Summer is on the brink of a singing career that she has always dreamed about when she is hit with a stalker. When the company she is working with hires a bodyguard for her she is fine with it until she realizes it is someone that she has had an intimate relationship with in the past. Ben loves being a bodyguard but when he realizes that his client, Summer, is someone from his past he isn't sure if he can do the job. This was a terrific read that dealt with finding that special someone, loosing them, and then reconnecting and finding just how strong those original feelings were. I went through a gambit of emotions while reading this but in a good way and look forward to what is to come next for another hot bodyguard.

ROCK ME is the first installment in Carly Phillips’ contemporary, adult BODYGUARD BAD BOYS erotic, romantic, suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for Alpha Security-a spin off from her. This is bodyguard Ben Hollander, and pop star Summer Michelle’s story line. NOTE: There is a slight cross –over with author Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series as Carly brings together the team from McKay Taggart and Alpha Security. April 2018 will see HIS TO PROTECT co-authored by Carly Phillips and Lexi Blake. Told from dual third person perspectives (Summer and Ben) ROCK ME is a second chance story line focusing on bodyguard Ben Hollander, and up and coming pop-star Summer Michelle. Four years earlier Ben Hollander had been assigned security duty to wanna-be singing star Summer Michelle but an affair with the woman he was charged to protect found our hero without a job, heartbroken and betrayed. Fast forward to present day wherein Ben finds himself, once again, protecting the woman with whom he had fallen in love-a woman he believes turned on him when her started began to rise. What ensues is the rebuilding romance between Ben and Summer, and the search for the person responsible for threatening our story line heroine. Ben Hollander hasn’t seen Summer Michelle for close to four years-four years wherein he blamed the singer for violating his contract clause. Summer Michelle is poised to make it big if only she can survive the grueling talent star competition, and the threats against her life. The relationship between Summer and Ben is one of second chances: a rekindling romance between two people whose growing love, years before, was destroyed by a jealous rival. Although Ben struggles to keep his relationship with Summer above board and professional, our heroine is determined to renew and revive what was started so long ago. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. We are introduced to Ben’s fellow co-workers at Alpha Security: boss Dan Wilson; Ava Talbott, and Jared Wilson; in absentia Tate Shaw and Austin Rhodes, as well as Summer’s agent Anna Davis, and best friend Ivy Jameson; Summer’s competition Tawny Renee, and Tawny’s agent Michael Gold. The requisite evil is easily deduced although the reasons come as a bit of a shock. Austin’s story line is next in TEMPT ME-January 2018. The world building focuses on the relationship between Summer and Ben, as well as the introduction of the Alpha Security team . ROCK ME is a sexy and edgy story line about second chances. The premise is entertaining and engaging; the characters are dynamic and spirited; the romance is captivating and sensual. ROCK ME is a dramatic and intriguing start to Carly Phillips’ BODYGUARD BAD BOYS.

I enjoyed this book. It's the first in a new series, and I'm looking forward to more sexy bodyguard goodness! Summer Michelle is a pop star. Well, "star" might be stretching it at the moment. She competed on, and was a co-winner, on a reality TV show 4 years ago. But, since then, she's mostly focused on her writing and recording, along with some voiceover work to pay her bills. But, she's about to catch her big break. The biggest pop star in the industry, Jade, needs an opening act for her new tour, and it's between Summer, and her rival/co-winner from the reality show, Tawny. While they are competing for the slot, some threats have come in against Summer, so Jade's team hires a bodyguard for both Summer and Tawny, just in case. Ben Hollander loves his work as a bodyguard. Though he made a huge mistake 4 years ago and lost his job, he's now found a great boss, and a great company to work for that's more like a big family. What was that mistake you ask? Well, he was working security for a reality TV show, and fell into bed with one of the stars, Summer. When news came out about their relationship, apparently from Summer herself, he was fired for breach of contract, and he never spoke to Summer again. She tried calling, etc, but he wasn't willing to talk to her. Not the best way to handle things, maybe, but he was angry. He learned young to know better when it comes to women, after watching his mom and dad's relationship implode, due to his mother's cheating ways. He vows never to let the personal affect his work again. It's too important to him. When he finds out he has to guard Summer, he's angry at first, but then he's worried about his control where she's concerned. Ben and Summer had a lot of miscommunication between them that had to be dealt with. They both have issues with their families, so both of them are quite on their own, and they found comfort in each other. Neither of them can manage to keep a professional distance between themselves, and when they finally give in, the chemistry was fantastic. I really enjoyed them both coming to terms with their attraction, in between bouts of pushing away, etc. Since they already had a history, things moved pretty quickly, but it was still realistic, and I enjoyed the pacing. The suspense plot was pretty light, and was related to who was threatening Summer, and why. It was well done, and though I suspected the culprit, it took me a while to be sure, and I still had no idea why they were doing it, so I appreciated the big reveal. I really enjoyed seeing a bit about Ben's boss and coworkers, since they will be featured in upcoming books in the series. They were interesting and entertaining, and it appears the next book is about one of the bodyguards and his daughter's nanny! I love those types of stories, so I am so here for it. I liked this story, and I'm excited for more from this group. This author has a way of pulling you into her worlds, and I have really enjoyed all the books I've read by her.

Carly Phillips bring us a NEW Bachelor Bad Boy Series featuring the Alpha Security Team, a Bodyguard Agency in the Bronx. Ben Hollander is given the assignment to protect upcoming singer Summer Mitchel from threats she's receiving to drop out of a contest to become the opening act for popular contemporary recording artist Jade Glow. Ben and Summer have a history. Ben is there to do a job, and only a job no matter how much Summer tempts him. At least that is what he tells himself. He will do everything to keep Summer safe, even share quarters with her 24/7. The chemistry between these two is HOT! You are immediately cheering … for Summer to WIN the contest … for Ben and Summer to get their second chance at love. I enjoyed meeting the Alpha Security Team, and I'm looking forward to Austin Roads story … TEMPT ME … coming in January 2018. I volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book

4 1/2 ☆ A very hot and sexy bodyguard and pop star story. Ben is hired to be a 24/7 bodyguard to Summer because of some threats towards her. But here's the kicker. They share a past that didn't end well. Could this be their second chance to make things right and achieve their HEA? Ben was hot and Summer was sweet. I really loved her character. The storyline flowed and their relationship was fun to read. I really liked the little mystery involved too. Overall a great start to a new series by the always wonderful, Carly Philips. *I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book*
