This book definitely deserves 5 stars! I just LOVED Rock Me! I was pulled in from page one and found myself wanting MORE every time I turned a page. All her life, Candace Andrews has done everything to please her parents and others, but on the night of her 23rd birthday, she finds herself at a tattoo parlor (owned by her cousin’s ex-boyfriend, and her long time crush, Brian Ross…) to get herself a little ink. Candace is tired of always pleasing others and never herself, so a tattoo is the perfect way to rebel. As soon as Brian gets his hands on her, all her feelings resurface and she can’t help herself but to think what those hands would feel like in other places… and the attraction is undeniable on his part when he slips her his number! Sweet and innocent Candace was the last person Brian ever expected to see again.
There is only one problem…her family despises him. Everyone thinks Brian is a slacker (because of a bad high school rep) and trashy (because he is covered in tattoos and piercings) but what no one sees, except for Candace, is what an amazing guy he really is! Brian loves what he does. He feels his job is all about helping others express themselves through ink and piercings, but what Candace’s family sees is someone who is not worthy of their daughter.
There is only one way to describe Brian…complete utter sexiness! I mean, if his tattoos and dirty piercings don't get you going, I don't know what will! I loved how on the outside, he looks like your typical bad boy, but on the inside he’s one of the nicest and sweetest guys! He’s such a doll :) I am a fan of bad boys with tattoos… so Brian was my kinda guy! As for Candace, I really loved how innocent she was… Although I tend to find myself leaning towards a strong heroine, I really felt a connection with her because even though she struggled with her insecurities throughout the book, she came out a strong woman in the end! This is a story that will stay with you for a long time… Especially the steamy scenes ;) This will certainly not be the last book I read from Cherrie Lynn! She is such a talented author. There was such an amazing dialogue in this story, in fact it was so good, I caught myself laughing out loud a lot of the time! Everything in this book felt so real, it was very easy to connect with each character! I would definitely recommend this book!
