A tasty treat... It was bittersweet to read the final book in the Black Falcon Series. I couldn't wait to read it, but I knew at the same time that it was the end and wanted to drag it out as long as possible. I've always loved the relationship between the band members, even when they are were fighting you knew they still loved each other like brothers. However; they are fed up with Tyke; he's used all of his free passes and has hit rock bottom. He's out of excuses and choices, he has to give in or walk away. He has a hard decision to make and his future is at stake. Frannie is trying to regain control of her own life after a tragic event has left her struggling with her own addiction. What better way to find strength than to help others facing the same struggle. Who would understand more than someone who's been there? What could be worse than two addicts tempting each other to give in to their desires? Is Black Falcon in danger? Can the band regain their trust in each other and move forward together? Will they ever understand that the band is Tyke's life and that he feels like he's been holding it together alone for the last year? If he loses his music, what's left for him? Get ready to get up close and personal with your emotions as you join Black Falcon as they struggle to stay together, and to understand what it means to be family on and off the stage.

“You taste like sunshine,” I love me a rocker book and for me personally no one does Hot Rockers with hearts of gold like Michelle Valentine! I am so sad to see my Black Falcon boys go but I am so happy to say I loved Tyke’s story. I had no idea what I was getting into with this story but once again Michelle found a way to keep me on my toes and surprise me! “My stupid emotions are everywhere. The attraction I was hoping would go away after I allowed him to ravage my body is still there, if not stronger than before.” Tyke is off to rehab after bottoming out when he feel left behind by the other three love sick members of Black Falcon and while he feels the weight of the world on his shoulders he is in no way prepared for the as sexy as they come therapist, Frannie. After condemning the guys for completely changing their ways after getting involved with their women he soon finds his world turned upside down. “You’ve taken up every spare inch in my brain since I got here, Frannie.” “Don’t tell me lies, even if they’re sweet.” “I don’t” Without giving too much away I will say that there were a ton of surprises in this book and I was constantly asking myself what could happen next. I loved how Frannie and Tyke’s relationship though clearly started because of a physical desire quickly grew into one of the sweetest relationships yet. I loved Tyke and how much he cares for her and boy does she need it! “All this time I never understood that in order to find love again, all I had to do was open up my heart to the possibility of it.” Michelle Valentine knows how to make a man oh so sexy while keeping him loveable. I am so so so sad that this is the last of the Black Falcon full length books but I absolutely cannot wait to see what Michelle has in store for us in the future! Her writing always grabs me and makes me want to ignore all my responsibilities and pretend that I too and in love with a rock star and he loves me! ~miranda

3.75 stars-ROCK MY BODY is the fourth full length and final installment in Michelle A. Valentine’s adult, contemporary Black Falcon erotic romance series focusing on the members of the rock group Black Falcon. This is guitarist and song writer Tyke Douglas, and addiction counselor Dr. Francine Mead’s storyline.  Told from alternating first person points of view (Tyke and Frannie) the premise of ROCK MY BODY focuses on Tyke’s spiral into addiction. Feeling ‘left out’ and going nowhere fast, Tyke’s jealousy of his band mate’s happiness turns inward and Tyke finds himself behind bars without any memory of what happened or why. When his fellow musicians send him packing, he decides to take matters into his own hand but winding up in rehab wasn’t on his list of things to do.  Enter Dr. Francine Mead-an addiction counselor whose own addiction will be tested when she meets the gorgeous rock star. The relationship between Tyke and Frannie is very quick to develop-in fact-so quickly that love at first sight is exactly what occurs between our storyline couple. Frannie knows that to get involved with a patient is ethically wrong but their attraction to one another cannot be denied. Not only does Frannie find herself falling in love but it is Tyke who begins to push for something more permanent. That is until someone at the rehab centre has proof that there is more between Tyke and Frannie than a professional relationship. The sex scenes are not romantic or seductive; in fact the sex is spur of the moment and intense because our couple are testing the ethical values of patient and doctor relationship, and time is of the essence so they don’t get caught. ROCK MY BODY is a fast paced, quick developing storyline that focuses on the relationship between two addicts whose lives begin to spiral out of control. There are moments of heartbreak, anger and painful realization but in the end there is a happily ever after for the last single member of the Black Falcon band. The epilogue fast forwards the series approximately one year where we will get a glimpse into the lives of the members of Black Falcon. The secondary characters include the members of Black Falcon for cohesion and familiarity, some of the rehab centre employees and patients, as well as a look into Dr. Mead’s family dynamics. Each chapter begins with a reference to a ‘real life’ song and singer; and throughout we find Tyke writing lyrics as they pertain to his life and his growing love for Francine Mead.

My 3.5-4 Star Review Now, first you may notice the rating. I am teetering on that one. This wasn't my favorite of the series. I am not sure why. I just wasn't as into it as I was the others. The book starts out great with Tyke and his downward spiral that lands him into rehab. I really like his character. He isn't the a-hole we have thought him to be in the past. He is just lonely and jealous of the lives his brother and bandmates now have. So he self-medicates and screws random women. Then you have Francine. A recovering sex addict, who is Tyke's therapist in rehab. I think this is the part where I started to get derailed. I just didn't like her character at all. Not liking her character made it hard to be immersed in the book as much as I liked. Her maturity seemed so much younger than her age. Her character was so non-committal to her own actions. She seemed like one big walking contradiction. Overall, this book is good. I was just hoping for it to be great. It has all of the qualities Michelle's books have. You get to know the characters so well, even if you didn't want to know them. Haha. Their interactions are vivid. The story-line is unique in its own. If you are a Michelle Valentine fan, you will definitely like this one.

For Tyke Douglas, the band Black Falcon is his reason for being. The creative genius behind the group of rockers, Tyke would be nowhere without the band and the other members, but he's tired of feeling like he's the only one that cares. With the rest of the guys having moved on with their ladies and other interests, Tyke has turned to some other 'friends' to help numb the feeling of loss. And these 'friends,' well, they're the kind of friends that can get you killed. Frannie Mead has demons of her own, and she's doing her best to lay them to rest. As the newest counselor at Serenity Hills, Frannie is working hard to regain her credibility and to keep her addiction for bad boys under control, which is working just fine until Tyke walks in the door. ROCK MY BODY is the final book in the BLACK FALCON series by Michelle Valentine, and, as such, is bittersweet. I have come to know and love these characters, and am sad to see their journey at an end. That being said, Michelle has knocked it out of the park with this one, delivering a book full of emotion, angst, and a message of second chances. Tyke may well be my favorite Falcon yet. He's such a beautiful soul, an artist that has lost his moorings. Add to that the fact that he is just all kinds of hot and sexy, and, well, how do you resist that? Frannie really doesn't stand a chance, try though she may. I really liked her, as well, and loved seeing the two of them interact and make their way to each other. Michelle Valentine, thank you so much for another great read, and for giving Black Falcon such a lovely closing act. It's not going to be the same without them, but I'm glad that I got to go along for the ride.

Our author Michelle Valentine has saved the best for last. This is the grand finale to the rocking series about Black Falcon and she has chosen to deal with Tyke, the Bassist and most recalcitrant rocker in the group. Tyke's entire life was dedicated to making music and sharing this experience with his twin brother Trip and the rest of the band - Riff and Noel. The friendship and bond between these guys was what gave his the extra kick of adrenalin and gave him this highest of highs. That perfect moment when they are playing and their sounds converge creates an energy that embraces not only the band members but also the audience listening to them. That is the perfect moment that Tyke live for. If you take that away or change it, what does Tyke have left? Now that all the guys have their love lives settled, Tyke is lost, and so his spiraling begins with sex, alcohol and drugs. Rehab only becomes an option when losing the band is his other only option. Tyke meeting his addiction counselor Frannie not only shakes him up because of his addiction, but also because the immediate impact she has on his libido. As he travels the rough road of detox, Frannie becomes the one person he can count on to understand him. The love affair that ensues is worth reading not only because of the titillating interactions, but because of the depth of feeling and psychological cleansing that occurs. I have loved this series since its inception. Every one of these guys has had a memorable story searching for their place in life and the one person to love and nurture them. Tyke was always the toughest one to tackle because of his complex personality and depth of feeling. He is the heart of the band as well as its conscience. If he is lost, Black Falcon cannot survive. His journey to being "clean" is a heart wrenching trip you will not soon forget.

So many emotions were triggered with this book. The most I felt being gutted. I never thought that another Black Falcon man would take my heart away from Riff, but Tyke did just that. My chest heaved when he went trough his trouble. I love this series so much because of my love of music. I love when an author incorporates music into their stories. It puts my two loves together and I think it makes the story so much better. I love the playlist for this book. It captures the emotions and the scenes perfectly.  Tyke, what can I say? He completely captured my heart with his struggles. I felt his pain of loss. I cried for him as he struggled with the changes and lost control of himself. Never in my time reading has a character made me hurt so bad for him. If he was real, I would hug him to death and never let him go. I think it's great that she saved him for last. It really was a great ending to the series.  Frannie, I loved her. I really liked that she fought for what she wanted. She didn't easily give up and she showed real strength. It's no surprise that I love strong, sassy, confident female leads and Frannie was all of those things. One part when her sass came out, I wanted to fist bump her and say, "You go girl!" I really connected with the way she was written.  Overall, this book made me cry happy and sad tears. I'm so sad to see the end of this series and I'm going to miss the boys of Black Falcon. I loved every word, loving and heart breaking. I think this is by far the deepest book in the series and I can't begin to tell you how moved I was reading it. I devoured this book. Thank You, Michelle for the perfect ending. Noel, Riff, Trip and Tyke will forever live in my heart.

Great Conclusion to the series. Sorry to see it end. Rock My Body is Tyke Douglas' book. Tyke has always been the calm, cool and collected one in Black Falcon. Tyke is the lyricist, he is basically the musical genius behind Black Falcon. He has always held the group together through all of the trials and tribulations, but now that everyone, including his identical twin brother Trip, except Tyke has paired off with the loves of their lives, and have started to raise families, Tyke feels all alone and as though the other guys no longer care about what happens with the band or to him. Tyke's feelings of loneliness lead him to a very dark place, which leads to addiction. Now, Tyke has become the one that needs someone to be there for him...and that is what leads him to Serenity...and eventually to Francine "Frannie" Mead, his treatment therapist. I loved Tyke's journey back to himself. Tyke's book was an extremely emotional read. My heart broke for him, because he truly felt all alone and by himself, and he just did not know how to cope anymore. Things were changing too quickly in the band for him and, honestly, it did not feel as though the other guys were really paying attention to the effect that their drama was having on the band, because they truly were too wrapped up in their own relationships and feelings. My heart hurt for Tyke with the way the other guys responded to him in the beginning. I was really angry with the way the other guys, especially Trip, with their treatment of Tyke. Yes, he needed to get help, but the guys were really harsh and I didn't feel like they were really there for him in the same way that he had been there for all of them when they were going through all of their problems. I must say that I wanted a little more scenes between Tyke and the guys during his therapy sessions. Tyke's journey also brought him to Frannie, who helped him to understand that he had to open up and express his feelings to others and to understand that he could fight the darkness, because he was not alone. Frannie also helped him to understand what it truly means to give your all to someone when you are in love, and how your priorities do change once you fall in love. Frannie was a great character, because she wasn't perfect. She was just as, if not, more flawed than Tyke, and she was trying to deal with her own addiction as well. However, there were many times during the story that I felt as though Tyke was more Frannie's therapist than she was his, because ii felt as though a little too much of Tyke's therapy sessions focused on Frannie telling Tyke about her issues and not the other way around. So, I just wanted a little more focus on Tyke actually talking more about his feelings. Having said that, I did love Tyke and Frannie's relationship and how they brought the best out in each other. Tyke showed Frannie that it is ok to love and to open your heart to love. They became each other's rock!! I thoroughly enjoyed Rock My Body. It was a very good conclusion to the Black Falcon series!! I have to say I am sorry that the series has ended because I really loved these guys. I loved that I was able to reconnect with everyone and the epilogue was great. Great job, Michelle Valentine.

This is the last book in this series and it centers around Tyke and Frannie. After Tyke hits rock bottom, I like how he found somebody who could actually relate to how he was feeling and thinking, not just with addictions but also about being a twin. Parts of the storyline were predictable but there were a couple of things that I was not expecting, which was good. I didn't care much for the epilogue because it felt kind of forced trying to wrap up each of the couples. I think that a novella would have worked better to wrap everything up. Overall, I liked reading the series and would read it again

Tyke Douglas is tired of being the "responsible" one of Black Falcon. So if the rest of the guys are off doing their thing why shouldn't he. Although things get a bit crazy. Francine Mead is trying to put her life in order and keep her past in the past. After battling her demons she decides to become an addiction counselor and helps others. When Tyke Douglas walks in the door as her first celebrity client she knows she is in trouble. This is a bit bitter sweet. I hate to see the Black Falcon series end, but I am glad that everyone is alright and happy. Although I feel it was bit rushed and that could just be me not wanting it to end. There were a few moments that I felt were resolved too easily but overall I enjoyed Rock My Body, Love me some Black Falcon, and I am sad to see them go!

Tyke Douglas is tired of being the glue that holds the hottest band in the world together. If the rest of the guys are out doing their own thing, then why shouldn’t he? He’s about to turn things up a notch and bring a whole new level of crazy into Black Falcon’s world.  Francine Mead is putting her sordid past behind and is determined to help others overcome their demons along side her. The first step in her new life is taking a job as an addiction counselor, where she can mentor others through their struggles. Francine never expected to be lured back into temptation when her first sexy celebrity client, Tyke Douglas walks through her door. The moment she lays eyes on him, she’s in trouble.  Both Tyke and Francine know a relationship between them would be a disaster, but with each session, things continue to heat up, making it impossible to deny the connection they share. Boundaries cross, attractions heighten and both of their willpowers will be tested to the very limit. Novel centers around Tyke Douglas, bassist of Black Falcon, and is final book in the series. This was bittersweet for me. I love this series. These boys have become part of my heart. I couldn't wait to read Tyke's story but knowing this was the last one in the series broke my heart.   I gave this book 5 stars.  This series deserves so much more then just 5 stars. It can be read as a stand alone but why would you want to do that!!? This is Tyke's story. Tyke is the last of the guys to get hitched and he is feeling it. He is tired of holding this band together. That is how he feels. That he is the only one doing anything. The other guys are all caught up in their relationships with their woman. Tyke resents that. Even his twin has lost his mind. So Tyke decides to do his own thing. His own thing gets out of hand and he ends up having to go into rehab to get it under control. This is where he meets the beautiful doctor Francine. She has her own problems and is dealing with her own losses. Both of them know that their relationship is against the rules, it is a disaster waiting to happen. But they feel that pull, that pull that is telling them that fate has other plans for them.  What will they do will they give in? And if they do will they be able to handle all the repercussions of having a relationship that was doomed from the start!?  I LOVED this book. It was my favorite by far. Only thing I didn't like was I knew it was the last book. Tyke is feisty and pigheaded and knows what he wants, he is sexy and beautiful on the inside and such a sensitive soul. He was so hurt by the things that were going on in the band and just went about it the wrong way to let the others know how he was feeling. He finally gets to open up and really get to know about himself when he is talking to Francine. Now the chemistry was there before he even met her but once he started to talk to her and get to know her the attraction just grew.. But she is also someone who brings out the best in him, makes him see his strong side and who he really is.. And shows him how to communicate.  You don't want to miss this book!! It kept me laughing and smiling the whole time.. I felt his frustration at times .. Michelle has a way of pulling you into her world!! I can't wait to read more from her.. She is on my must read list!!!!  IN fact this whole series is a must read! Don't miss out if you love rockers and bad boys with beautiful souls. Then YOU DON't want to miss this series!! Get it now!!! Thank you Michelle for completing this beautiful, amazing series with this spectacular book!!! These boys will forever be a part of my heart!!! <3 **Cries eyes out**

I love michelle and this series. It was not my favorite of the series but it was great. It wasn't as "spicy" as the others and I would have liked a more in depth epilogue but that's just because I don't want to let these characters go.

I'm heartbroken that this series has ended, but this was an incredible conclusion. We were give small glimpses of Tyke in the other Black Falcon books, so I wasn't really sure exactly what to expect from his character. I absolutely loved him. Tyke is definitely the most sensitive of the BF boys. The event that lead to him going to rehab broke my heart. I loved seeing the sensitive side of his relationship with Trip when he took Tyke to rehab. It was good to see a more sensitive side of Trip as well. For me, this was the most emotional book of this series. Tyke and Frannie both have demons that they're facing and trying to overcome. I liked that the book showed that overcoming addiction isn't a quick fix - it's a daily journey, and one that requires support from those around you. Although they weren't with Tyke physically in rehab, the BF boys played a major role in what lead to his addiction, and his recovery as well. Frannie doesn't deny that she is attracted to Tyke, but does her best to fight it. Tyke doesn't make this easy on her. He realizes that they could be what the other needs in order to heal. Will Frannie give in to the attraction, or will she put her career first? While I loved Tyke and Frannie's story, my favorite part of the book was the epilogue. We get to see what's been going on with all of the members of Black Falcon and their families. Again, I hate to see this series end, but this was an incredible conclusion.

Sweet and sexy Tyke. The twin we all wanted to know more about. Tyke is broken. He feels left out by his brother, left out on life and left out of his true love...Black Falcon. The band is what he lives for, until he meets Frannie. Frannie knocks Tyke for a loop. She not only makes he realize that his drug problem is real, but he has more to live for than just the band. She makes him feel more. She makes him love with a clear head and mind without drugs in his life. The forbidden therapist/client relationship made their stolen glances and rendezvous super hot. You could feel him change as you flipped the pages, almost seeing the "light bulb" go off in his head when he knows this is it for him. The only drug he needs is Frannie. I LOVED seeing all of the Black Falcon boys again. Even though I loved Tyke, I will always be a Golden Ticket waving, oreo lover...Yes Riff still has my heart, but a piece of me love all of them! The epilogue was epic and exactly the right dose of each member that fans will adore. It was bittersweet to see everything come together, but I am so sad to see them go. It was truly perfect. What a beautiful finish to a TOP notch rocker series. This is one you need to read.

I waited so long for book and was so excited to read it.  However, almost half way I was  bored  to tears I had to keep putting it down.  I did finish it (less than 200 pages) and was more disappointed with the end, it felt as though she rushed thru it to give the first four chapters of her new series. Very disappointing!!!!

I have read all the books in the Black Falcon series and they are all awesome! After each book, that one became my favorite and now I can't choose! Rock My Body was a perfect way to end the Black Falcon series. Michelle Valentine knows how to write rock stars, love, emotional, funny and sexy books! I just wanted to reach in a hug Tyke. He's tortured and self destructive and that lands him in rehab. He's convinced that the other members of the band have gone weak because they've fallen in love. Little does Tyke know that when he sets his eyes on Francine Mead he falls hard and fast. He doesn't know what it is at first but it as soon as it hits him he goes after what he wants. Francine is his doctor and she refuses to let the attraction turn into something more. She puts up a good fight, but she can't fight fate. She and Tyke understand each other and have more in common than she ever thought possible. She can only resist so long before she gives into Tykes smooth words and loving arms. Can they make their relationship work even though it's forbidden. Will it be worth all the risks they have to take. I didn't want it to end and I cried when it was over. Don't miss this one! How am I supposed to concentrate on helping this man when he's my own personal brand of tattooed man-flavored candy? Please tell me you're not one of those chicks who's into the bubblegum sounding top forty hits. That would break my f***ing heart. "I need you. Don't break my heart. Give me a chance to be a good man to you." It's then that I realize my mistake. All this time I never understood that in order to find love again, all I had to do was open up my heart to the possibility of it.

I love this series, wish it would go on forever, but sadly this is the last of the series. The last Black Falcon member to have his story told. It has me wondering, if we all one starred this maybe Ms. Valentine will feel as though she let us down and write us another one? Ok Ok I guess that wouldn’t be fair to her, or to anyone reading the review for an honest opinion. So a little housekeeping information. This is part of a series, but totally stands on its own if you haven’t read the others. While there is some interaction with the other characters I don’t think you need to read those in order to follow along her. The members of Black Falcon all have their quirks and individuality, but I have to say I think Tyke is my favorite which makes it fitting that his is the last story told. From the moment the story started I felt a connection to Tyke that I didn’t have with the other boys. Maybe it was his troubled soul or his feelings of loneliness that attracted me to him. Frannie has her own issues and is not a weak female role which I need to love a story. Although she gives into temptation she also stands her ground on more than one occasion and I don’t think I could have resisted Tyke as long as she did. So I give her major props there. As always Michelle has given us a well written story that is easy to read, If work and school didn’t get in the way I would have definitely finished this in one sitting as it was NOT easy to put down. Because of a unique situation the characters are in, the sex is limited which I think adds so much to the story, but it’s well written and HOT HOT HOT. Now can someone find me my own Tyke?

Rock My Body by Michelle Valentine is a huge emotional journey for Tyke Douglas. Struggling with the potential loss of his band Black Falcon, the only thing that makes him feel complete. Watching his band mates and brother connect with their soul-mates, he feels bitter and lost. He turns to drugs to easy the pain and anxiety of his looming loss. Fed up with Tyke's behavior, the band decides enough is enough and send him to rehab. Frannie Mead is a addiction counselor determined to help others, just as she has struggled with her own issues in her past. Her willpower is immediately tested when Tyke is admitted to the facility where she works. Sparks fly as soon as they meet each other. Michelle provides a good back story for both Tyke and Frannie. Frannie's history is so sad. She's dealt a huge blow early in life and wallows in her addiction to feel whole again. The nature of her problem is tricky and hard to differentiate from true love. I worried for both Tyke and Frannie, wondering if they could overcome all of their issues and find love with each other. The first quarter of this book is just so heartbreaking. Watching Tyke struggle is just so hard to read. I wanted to to reach out and comfort him after many gut wrenching scenes. Tyke has a beautiful heart and to see it breaking is hard. Frannie entering his life is a revelation, but not without trouble. She is not in any, shape, or form looking for a relationship. Her addictions are more complicated than Tyke's, but finds she's unable to resist him. But as I read, I couldn't help but wonder if the spark is real or just her addictions acting out. The middle section of the book had me ruining my manicure. A forbidden relationship, blackmail, and souls crushing guilt had my chewing down my $35 fresh from the nail salon nails. Michelle's writing always keeps me guessing. She does a wonderful job of wrapping up all the the angst and suspense into a gratifying story. All the elements of a great rock star read are in this book--sex, drugs, rock & roll, groupies, stalkers, bad to the bone exes, and more! You won't be disappointed with this book!

It's a sad day in the indie world as author Michelle A. Valentine brings her Black Falcon Series to completion. Rock My Body is Tyke’s story, gripping, emotional and devastating. I am so sad. If this was the first time, I met Tyke or the band I wouldn't feel this emotional but being with the band through many books and knowing each character it's hard to get through how Tyke feels about his brothers, his feelings of being unwanted, invisible, used. At first I was a little annoyed with Trip, Noel and Riff pushing Tyke to the side to concentrate on their family then I had to remember it’s the drug filled haze that Tyke lives in giving him that “I’m all alone” paranoia. Drugs, when you’re up nothing matters accept the freeing buzz of euphoria but when you crash, so does your world. Frannie, the drug counselor might be the cure for Tyke’s addiction. Smart, beautiful with an addiction of her own. Damn, it’s as if they mirrored one another, different addiction, same result, self-destruction. Only Frannie reached down deep pulled herself up and came out the winner. I loved the interactions between Tyke and Frannie, she resists, he persists and in the end they discover they just might be each other’s cure. I almost lost it reading the lyrics for Push and Pull, at that moment I knew Tyke was back. Bittersweet, I’m feeling melancholy that the series is over and yet over the top happy after reading the epilogue. Farewell to Noel and his Ball Bustin Bitch, Riff and his Golden Tickets, Trip the King of Orgasms and Tyke the Music Man, the Heart and Soul of Black Falcon.
