Preview — Rock the Heart by Michelle A. Valentine
Rock the Heart (Black Falcon #1)
"This next song goes out to the girl who shredded my heart without hesitation back in high school. It's called Ball Busting Bitch, and Lanie, this ones for you."
Those two lines are what sold me. I was madly in love after that.
Rock the Heart totally rocked MY heart.
Cheesy, I know. But for real, I lurrrrvvvved this book! A few chapters in, I found out this was a rekindled/reunited love theme and you know how I feel about that.
After Lanie and Noel separat ...more
It's safe to say that YA & NA don't do anything for me, and I would really appreciate it immensely if every author would label their books accurately. Rock the Heart is by no means an Adult Romance. It's New Adult and if I'd've known it I wouldn't have read it in the first place. YA and NA are not my cuppa. Then again, I have to wonder why I loved the extremely young couple in Kristen Ashley's Games of the Heart so much. Maybe this was anoth ...more

I swear to fucking god i felt like i had already read this book this week! No wait a minute that was The Perfect Game, it totally reminded me of it, i cannot explain how without spoiling both books so i wont. I am not saying that either is a copy of either, i am ...more
You will never understand how desperate i was before that book!!!
For days, i couldn't read a whole book and after all that dissapointment...
...I thought... "Why don't i try a rock band book since i have a thing with these kind of stories???"
And thank God, it worked!!! I'm so happy right now!!!!
This book made my day!!!
Black Falcon is an absolutely amazing rock band and their leader singer, Noel Falcon, was such a georgeous dude!!!!
But this story started a little bit strange...
I am sorry, but telling someone not to follow their dream and telling them that their dreams won't come true or are unrealistic is RUBBISH. Sorry Lane I would have slapped you hard if you ever fed me that shit.
Also, I am sorry, but not being with the love of your life just because of a 'JOB' is horrendous and so fucking stupid.
They were good together, the whole thing going with them was nice, cute and stuff but it miss ...more

"The only mistake when it comes to love, is not going for it."
It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of rock star books. Rock the Heart has now been added to my list of good rock star reads.
What makes is a good rock star read? Well for me it’s simple: One or more hot rock stars. Rock the Heart had that and so much more!
Lanie Vance is an intern looking for her big break at Center Stage. During a routine meeting Lanie finds herself picked to secure Noel Falcon’s business fo ...more
This kind of reminded me of a toned down version of Olivia Cunning's Sinners books. Sinners lite, maybe? Where Lanie was concerned, Noel was a sweet, caring, jealous and an insecure mess all rolled into one hot piece of man. Lanie's "I want him, I don't want to want him. I love him, I can't be with him" routine got a little tedious. He's hot, he's a rock star and you love him! Get on that already! When Noel's big reveal finally happened, I didn't blame her for wanting to hit the ro ...more
My friend and I bought this book together the other day and she actually read it before me. She wanted me to hurry up and read it so she could hear my thoughts on it. She thought it was a so so read for her compared to some of the other rock band stories she has currently read. The truth is I am MUCH harsher with books then she is so I was nervous to read this after some of the things she talked about. ...more
Noel and Lanie were childhood sweethearts who shared a deeply intense love for each other, but Noel was left shattered when Lanie broke his heart at 18 when she told him she couldn’t take second place to his love of music that would never take him anywhere. Four years later, and Lanie is interning at a marketing firm, and Noel is now the lead sin ...more

The band, Black Falcon, they put the func in dysfunctional. Between the groupies and whose sleeping with who, it was a quick, entertaining read. Lane's marketing company sends her for a few weeks to hang around the rich, sexy, rocker, Noel Falcon, to get a big contract. The problem, he is her ex whom she dumped after graduation. Now that he actually made it and she is nowhere near to moving up the l ...more
If you're a lover of sexy, rockstar love stories, you'll love this. Great for fans of The Sinners, The Mighty Storm, etc.
However, as much as I loved it, I found it a little too reminiscent of the books I mentioned above. It had a bit of each story thrown in to make one new book.
I loved Noel. He is seriously, drool worthy and will have any rock hero fanatic drooling from the very beginning. With his cocky self assured one liners and his desperate love for Lanie, you can't not fall in love with N ...more
So I was quite excited to read Rock The Heart. I had purposely stayed away from the teasers. First off I want to say that “you cannot re-invent the wheel”. There are so many books in this genre out there that yes despite comparisons being inevitable and originality somewhat unreachable, to purely compare would be injustice to this book and its Author.
I love my rock star books, music and its artists are an obsession of mine, so yeah I am a sucker for hot rock star books!

I'll admit it, I love rock star books. But Michelle Valentine already had me when she admitted that Adam Levine was her muse for this book. The cockiness, the swagger, the gorgeous butt and above all else, his sincerity with his feelings had me fall in love with Noel Falcon. Lanie isn’t without her merits too, she is independent, wants to succeed in her new job, but like me, can’t get past Noel Falcon. He’s that k ...more
Rock the Heart was a wild ride through a variety of emotional peaks and valleys. One moment I was happy and then the next I was so freaking mad I snapped at my husband who asked what time I would be starting dinner. Does he not know that when I am reading a good book I could care less about food? Then because I just had to know what happened after a fork went through my heart, I told him I had to “use” the restroom and snuck my iPhone into my hoodie, locked the door and ...more
Four years later his dreams came true and he’s the lead singer and front man of the one of the best rock bands in the world, the Black Falcon. She is an intern in a big marketing company that wants to score a deal with the band. S ...more

“I’ll do anything you want to make this happen between us, including give you time because I can’t lose you again. It hurts too fucking much.” ~ Noel
Son of a bitch! Curse you, Rockgods! You know you’re one of my weaknesses; my kryptonite. I couldn’t help but pick this book up. I seriously have issues. I can’t say no to these hot and sexy tattooed gods. The only thing that would totally make me combust is if he was a British rockstar. Alas, he is not, but that’s okay. Noel Falcon is ...more
I don't even know where to begin! I LOVE this book so much that love isn't even an adequate enough word to describe it! It is that good!!
The relationship and attraction between Noel and Lanie is so intense, that you feel yourself being completely consumed by them and their story! If not for my kids, I would have not put this book down until I was done! Even then I only put it down once!
Michelle has you falling ...more
I’m familiar to Michelle Valentine’s writings, as a matter of fact I’m a fan of her Hard Knocks series and I’m so looking forward to read Xavier Cold. Meanwhile I decided to give it a try to her Black Falcon series , even if rock stars are not really my type of reads. Maybe it’s just me but rock star stories are a little too … unrealistic .
Noel Falcon is the lead guitar player and singer of the Black Falcon rock band. Lanie is the hardworking good girl who tries to achieve a job...more
Then, I listened to more (it was the audiobook version.) *Sigh* The beginning was the highlight, it only went downhill from there. Let me first start this autopsy by naming the subject, Lanie- from this point on in the review she will be named Doormat. She's supposed to be this eager marketing intern trying t ...more
