by Carly Phillips
Publication Date: September 19th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Bodyguard Bad Boys … Sexy, Hot, and oh so protective!
A pop star in danger.
Her reluctant bodyguard.
A past they can’t deny.
Summer Michelle is on the verge of ultimate fame.
Ben Hollander has sworn off mixing business with pleasure.
But keeping his hands off of the sexy songstress is easier said than done and once the threat is neutralized, will she choose fame over love?
Her heart was pounding hard in her chest, the thunderous live applause still echoing around her and the rush of success and pride in overcoming what could have been a disaster, had her soaring.
“Did you see that?” she asked Ben. “My earpiece went dead and I nailed it anyway!”
“You totally did,” he said, a huge grin on his face that let her know he understood what a huge moment this was.
She squealed in excitement and threw her arms around his neck, needing to share her exhilaration. Their gazes met and locked, the air around them suddenly crackling with tension and sexual need even Ben couldn’t deny.
She knew what she wanted, knew there was no better time to go about it. Her gaze fell to his mouth and she pressed her lips against his. He jerked in surprise then groaned, thrust his hand beneath her hair, holding her against him as he slid his tongue past the seam of her lips and kissed her back.
He might think he wanted to keep his distance but his body was demanding they get close, his mouth gliding back and forth over hers, razor stubble bristling her cheeks in a sweet burn and his tongue delved deep. Against her stomach, she felt the hard press of his erection, causing desire to sweep over her in waves.
No wonder she hadn’t found a guy she wanted to keep in her life. No one could live up to Ben.
He kissed like he wanted to possess her.

~ 5 It’s All About the Bodyguard Stars ~
Rock Me is an fun and enjoyable second chance romance with the musician background to it. It is a quick read, meaning that we get right into the story from the beginning, but nothing was rushed. That’s one of the main things I love about a Carly Phillips book, she gets to the point with her stories and really doesn’t drag anything out.
This story has a little bit of everything I look for in a 5 star read. There is some laughter, love, suspense and some really steamy times too. It was the perfect mix!!!! Just the right combination to keep the reader turning the pages.
Rock Me is the first book in Carly’s newest Bodyguard Bad Boys Series. I think she is off to a fantastic start with this series. I thoroughly enjoyed Rock Me. I loved that the musician in the story was our heroine. A refreshing switch in my opinion. I also liked that it wasn’t a Rock Star romance with all the extra curricular activities we usually see in one of these books. Like I said before, this is also a second chance romance. Ben (the Hero) is a bodyguard who was burned by the heroine of the story years ago. But now he is hired again to cover her security detail and to say he wasn’t happy is an understatement. Determined to keep the job the priority and not be swayed by Summer again, he builds some walls around himself. Will Summer be able to knock them down?? What happens when Summer is offered the chance of a lifetime?? Can these two get it right the second time around??
I want to say that I believe these books in this series are going to be standalone novels. We get a complete story with this one and there is NO cliffhanger. I am guessing that this will be standalone with interconnected characters, but new storylines and couples with each book. I loved how the epilogue to this book finished Ben and Summer’s story but also introduced the next Hero to come. I am looking forward to Austin’s book….it’s a single dad romance (I love those)
I would again recommend this book to anyone who likes a second chance romance or a Rock Star story. If you are a fan of Carly Phillip’s then you will want to jump into this new series….It’s off to a great start!!!!
