Rock The Beat Blog Tour 4 1/2 Stars Review

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**

Trip Douglas (born October 14th), is the drummer for the American heavy metal band Black Falcon. Trip is best known for being the crazier of the two Douglas Twins. His triple-thumping foot pedal sound became a trademark for the band.
Trip began playing instruments under the guidance of his musician father along side his twin brother Tyke, but his interest in playing in a band grew once he discovered his love for hard rock music. He joined a band called Dingy while in high school with his brother Tyke and his best friend Zachary ‘Riff’ Oliver. Later the band was renamed to Black Falcon after the addition of the bands new front man, Noel Falcon.

Trip also enjoys extreme spots, such as dirt bike riding, rock climbing, and sky diving, making him the most adventuress member of the band. His dream is to one day climb Mount Everest.

“I’m Trip Douglas. It looks like you and I will be getting cozy while you show me the ins and outs of this place.”

I stare down at his hand. Ugh. This is so not happening to me. Our family business is going down the freaking toilet and I have to depend on the guy who thinks with his dick to pull us out of the hole?Maybe the investor can send someone else? Anyone else! No way is some rich, old dude relying solely on Trip’s judgments of the place to make a huge financial commitment? This guy can’t be trusted with something so important. This guy can’t stick with the same woman for five minutes, let alone see such a huge business deal through.
Trip wiggles his fingers at me. “Come on. They won’t bite.”
Dad needs this partnership to work for the sake of the track. He told me last week how important it was for this business to get it. If it doesn’t go through, we’re in big trouble.
Reluctantly, I take his hand. It’s warm and rough against my own skin and it’s hard not to think about the way he felt pressed against me last night as he gives it a couple of quick shakes. “Holly Pearson.”

"I received an ACR in exchange for an honest review"

Michelle you have done it again. I love this series and I know we are getting close to the end. What will I ever do without Black Falcon? You have such a wonderful talent for creating such awesome characters, I know I will miss this series greatly. It is definitely going to be on the front of my bookshelf to read over and over again.

TRIP – Holy hell, tattoos, piercings, dirty mouth HOT rock star and business man, oh la la we have a winner. I know I would love to take Trip home with me.

The things that come out of this man’s mouth, can we say NO filter.

“I promise you’ll love the way I fuck you.”

“Easy there, sugar tits, no need to be bitchy. I’m plenty fun once you lose that stick up your ass.”

“Get ready sweetness. There’s a whole lot more where that came from. I’m the self-proclaimed Orgasm King.”

"If it walks with a dick, and thinks with a's a guy. Trust me on this. I am one, and I know how we operate."

I didn’t know if I wanted to kiss him or smack him. But it is Trip so I think I just wanted to lick him. YUMMY!!!!

I really love what Michelle did with Trip’s story. It was set more outside of the bus and touring with the band. Don’t get me wrong though, you still get your sweet ass rock scenes and get to catch up with the other band members and their families. Michelle would never leave us hanging like that.

Trip and Holly will definitely lite your kindle on fire. Whew!!! Fanning self!!!

When Trip and Holly meet at a club on the dance floor, the heat that is felt between them is instant. Holly may say and act like she has no feeling for Trip but he has his own way of letting her true feeling slip through each time he looks at her.  Holly knows a tattooed bad boy rock star will only lead to heartache. Trip on the other hand would love to change her mind.

I love how their game of trying to make Jackson jealous ultimately backfires and the two can’t help but show the true attraction that they feel for one another. The chemistry between them is explosive.

All in all I would have to say I am forever a Black Falcon fan and can’t wait to read Tyke’s story.
