BLOG TOUR + REVIEW + PLAYLIST + GIVEAWAY: Rock The Beat by Michelle A Valentine

We welcome Michelle A. Valentine to the blog with the 4th Installment to her Black Falcon Series. 
This is Trip & Holly's Story. 


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**



We welcome the 4th Installment into Black Falcon Series with Trip & Holly's Story. 

We are met with Holly, who has forgo her studies to help her dad out at the racing track to save it from going under. With her Dad not letting go of her drug addicted mother, she holds everything together for them both.  

We are then met with Trip, the Hot as Hell Twin and Sex on Legs Black Falcon drummer. With his heart breaking past, all Trip wants is a one night stand with no strings attached. But he thought wrong when he met Holly on the dance floor one drunken night.  Little does he know that they will meet again. 

Trip is looking for a new investment with his cashed up funds and comes across the soon be to be foreclosed Racing Track. Unbeknownst to Holly and her dad, Trip goes undercover as the Investors spy.  When Holly's thinks back to her drunken night she remembers who Trip really is. Things certainly didn't go down too well. 

"Tell me, sugar tits, did the last guy get your panties in  a bunch? I'll be happy to untwist them, if you like? You'd be amazed how it'll pop that stick right out of your ass. And with a fine-ass body like yours, I'm a great volunteer and I'd consider it a public service"
~ Trip says to Holly

Over time Trip & Holly they have to work together to fix things, however they soon develop a bond that they both realize,  but are too scared to admit. 
The chemistry with these two is honestly beautiful. The way that Trip becomes her pretend bf/ protector which I thoroughly enjoyed. The humorous banter sometimes had me in stitches. As to any story there are hiccups along the way. Holly's ex is in the race to cause trouble and wanting to win her back at all costs. Thinking his celebrity status will win her back, he was certainly wrong when he met Trip.
With the protector and supporter of Holly's Best friend Max, his story through this book, is heart wrenching and inspiring for what he sacrifices to keeps his best friend safe

"Thats way too much man for you Holly. A guy like that will chew you up and spit your little heart all over the sidewalk. You need to steer clear of that tasty piece of dangerous ass." ~Max

Overall it was another one of Michelle's stories I loved, that has been written beautifully and represented both characters so well. After such tragic past with life and their ex's, these two together were made to fit and complete each other to find the meaning of true love once again.




He steps in front of me and his eyes zero in on my chest. Both of his hands dart to my top button on my gray top and he releases it from its hole before moving on to the next one. “First of all, I was attracted to your banging body in that little black dress. It screamed, “Fuck me,” so that’s not flirting—that’s attention seeking. Believe me, I wasn’t the only one watching you shake your ass. I was just the only one brave enough to try and get with you even though you were there with another man.”
“You thought I was there with Max?” I ask even though it doesn’t surprise me. Max isn’t exactly the stereotypically homosexual male. There’s nothing feminine about him. People make the mistake that we’re an item all the time.
“And you were what, going to steal me away from my date?”
Trip shrugs. “When I see something I want, I go after it. And that night I wanted you. That is until you let him drag you away from me. I figured it wasn’t worth the scene it would cause to kick his ass.”
I roll my eyes. “How do you know you wouldn’t have been the one on the receiving end of that ass-kicking? Max is a pretty strong dude.”
He gives me a pointed look. “If there’s one thing I know besides that I’m awesome in bed, is that I can fight.”
I sigh. “Okay, so you’re a badass—I get it. What’s the other reason you think you I can’t flirt?”
He smiles. “I win the flirting debate because I believe it was me who came on to you first, so you can’t take credit for that.”
My brain attempts to wade through the drunken memories of a couple nights ago. “You may have started the dance, but I believe I’m the one who turned around to take it to that next level, allowing you to kiss me. Therefore I finished it. I get total credit for flirting with you first.”
He undoes the last button on my shirt. “No. Max dragged you away, effectively cutting us both off for the night. And Thank God for that. He deserves a fucking medal for performing a good deed. Can you imagine how awkward all this would be if we’d had crazy sex that night, only to meet up the very next day? That would’ve been a nightmare.”
I flinch. “Am I really that horrible that you would’ve regretted sleeping with me?”
