An ultimatum can break your heart....

Every night lead singer, Sed Lionheart whips thousands of women into a frenzy with his voice alone. But the stage is the only place Sed feels any passion since he lost Jessica...

If you’re not willing to break all the rules...

It shattered her heart, but law student Jessica broke off her engagement to Sed, determined to be successful on her own terms. But no other man can ever hold a candle to Sed...

Then a chance meeting and tortuously close quarters lead to uncontrollable flares of passion and rediscovery of their unique penchant for public encounters. Now, in addition to the risk of mutual heartbreak every time they get together, they’re in danger of truly scandalous public exposure...

Sedric Lionheart was the last person Jessica expected to see while she was working as a stripper at Paradise Found. Jessica and Sed haven’t seen each other since she walked out on him two years ago after calling off their engagement. When Sed causes a fight and gets Jessica fired, she has no other option but to take a job touring with Sed and the rest of the Sinners for the summer.

These two were constantly having wild, hot sex. There was no lack of chemistry with these two. And the whole time, Jessica kept proclaiming it was just sex and that she hated Sed. But then on the other hand, she was majorly possessive and jealous when it came to Sed.

With all the sex Sed and Jessica were having you would think that there wouldn’t be much let for character development, but that definitely wasn’t the case. All the characters were well developed and felt like actual people that you would want to spend time.

At times though, I didn’t really care for Jessica. Mostly because I didn’t like how she was treating Sed. I didn’t like that she set out to purposely hurt him, when it was evident to everyone that he loved her. But even through it all, I was genuinely rooting for them and wanted them to finally get their happy ending.

Of all the secondary characters, I really loved Trey and Eric. Those two definitely kept me entertained outside of Sed and Jessica. Jace however is still a bit of a mystery to me. Myrna and Brian disappointed me when it came to how they handled the situation regarding Trey. I guess I just expected better from these two.

Rock Hard is a hot, steamy read full of great, lovable men. These men are strong, sexy rockers who are solid, caring men when it comes to their women. This was a great addition to the series, and I anxiously await the next installment.
