Love this series!!! Drummer of the Black Falcon, Trip, decides to do some investing at a track. He meets Holly, who has recently been dumped. I think Trip was written for me, he was cheeky, full of himself, flirty, dirty talking.

Thing? What are we in fifth grade? It's a cock, Holly. Call it what it is

I felt like I had a permanent grin for half the book. Even though by 10% I knew exactly where this story was going, I was kept entertained by the couples interactions and the comfort of

10/31/13, yeah, it is hard to top the last books (especially Riff and Aubrey's). As a writer, you have to be satisfided with your "product", so it is better to take your time to rethink than to fail.......... I have read it without the last five pages( it did not matter). This was nothing special, nothing breathtaking, nothing better than Riff and Aubrey. It is difficult, because this couple has been turned out very well. It is a pity.

Wow.....I am kind of feeling cheated!!!!! There was no beat in this book. Prior to reading this book, I really loved the other books, and could not wait for this book to come out. Sadly It was not what I was hoping for, and I kept thinking okay they are gonna hit the road an we will get the love of the music world, the fun of all the traveling, along with all the drama that the guys give to each other. Don't get me wrong, I love the excitement of two people meeting and challenging one another ...more

Rock the Beat is another installment of the Black Falcon series featuring Trip, the band's drummer. With the BF guys on a break to spend time with their families, Trip finds a business opportunity that he's into pursuing. He meets Holly Pearson and sparks fly from there. Their relationship starts off as something it's not as they are working their way towards each other. If you like the Black Falcon series then you'll enjoy Trip and Holly's story. It's an easy read and typical of the series with ...more

I was so excited to get this book. After the last installment of Riff, which was hotter than hot and super sweet, I couldn't wait to get Trips story. I have learnt that Michelle Valentine provides us with Sweet, funny, and very sexy characters and it's hard not to fall in love woth each one as you go along.

Trip Douglas is the drummer in the band Black Falcon...(I'm a sucker for the drummer!)
Up until now, the Douglas brothers were kept pretty mysterious so i was unsure what to expect.

Michelle has once again done it!!

Trip and Holly, I didn't think I could love a couple more in this series but I love these two. Trip acts like such a bad boy, but deep down inside he has got that loving, big heart ready to burst through. He has been hurt before and so he believes he is not ready to commit to anyone ever again, that is until he meets the beautiful Holly.

Holly is a beautiful soul, she seems to do

I began reading this series way back in 2013 and in an effort to catch up on my TBR I'm enjoying listening to books I purchased a long time with my romance package with audible.

This was a fairly low angst read for me. Trip is in the band Black Falcon and while the rest of the band have decided they need a break to focus on their families, Trip has decided to use the time to find some new investments.

He ends up at a family owned motor cross track where he meets Holly. There is an instant

It needs serious editing. It had adverbs and pronouns missing from so many sentences that my mind had to rewrite them in my head in order to make sense. The book was honestly a lot of dialogue that I didn't like. It was uneventful and kind of boring. They repeated themselves and rehashed so many things, that I scrolled through half of the scenes and still understood everything that was going on. Honestly, I like that it was not such a rockstar book but at the same time we are fans of this series ...more

I'm a huge fan of Michelle. A. Valentine's "Black Falcon Series." Noel and Riff's books were 5 heart reads for me so imagine how excited I was to be getting Trip's book. Unfortunately it absolutely guts me to say but this one just didn't cut the mustard. Please don't shoot me!!! Just hear me out. The story itself was good but I have to say I did miss all the shenanigans that went with the band and the rock star lifestyle. Don't get me wrong, there was still drama but not the sort

5 Trippy Stars!!!!!

Well let me say that I think this book was my favorite of the series so far. I have loved all the books, but for some reason this one was just AMAZING!!!! My only real complaint is that I wish it would've been longer. This book was a really quick read, one because it seemed shorter then the other books in the series, but also because once you start this book you won't be able to put it down. I read this book

If Michelle's name is attached to a book you better believe this girl has it on her TBR and is anxiously awaiting its arrival...Rock the Beat was no different.

I had all these expectations for the dirty mouthed Trip Douglas and he shattered them in the best ways.

My heart ran the gamut in this one. It swelled with joy till it shattered with pain and then repaired itself. I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more, I got angry, I was sad, I felt joy, hope, and well flushed...cause come on ladies this

Having loved the Black Falcon stories so far, I could wait to dip into Trip’s story. There’s something about the prospect of twins, especially when they are identical and in a band. Right!!!!

Black Falcon, sadly, are taking a break and Trip finds himself at a loose end. Unlike Noel and Riff, Trip isn’t in a steady relationship and finds himself looking for other financial opportunities to keep occupied. Trip becomes interested in the Mountain Time Speed Track and soon finds an added investment

Can't get enough of Black Falcon! Trip was quite the smoothie at the bar, snuggling up to a drunk Holly and he almost had her if it wasn't for Max stealing her away. Next day Trip ends up at the track, hitting on the girl working there, and who is it... Holly. She recognizes him, but surprise to her he was there as investor and she had to be nice to him.. ha, love it. Well a few days in and Trip's sweet side shines through catching Holly off guard and she warms to him. Max and her Dad confides ...more

I love this series by Michelle Valentine. Noel's book hooked me and I can't get enough. And I did love this book but I felt cheated, left hanging, slapped in the face by the ending of this book. I couldn't believe I was at the end. Just left with a text from Trip. I wanted Holly to meet the band and the girls. I wanted the band to perform and Holly see Trip at what he does best. I wanted to see what happens to Holly's dad, Holly's mom and her ex. I wanted to see a future for Trip and Holly. Does ...more

This is actually my favorite out the series. This book was not just about rock star settling down. It also dealt with abuse with an ex boyfriend, but also talks of HIV and bullying homophobia. My favorite pages of this book were 168 the part where the dad admits to Trip that he heard him and his daughter having loud sex through the night and did not want to kick his ass. I found that part very funny. and also my other favorite page was 176 when Holly's ex boyfriend gets arrested and tells the ...more

Ok here's how it is! I love Trip like I knew I would. For me he's definitely the sexiest member of Black Falcon and as a self confessed orgasm king, he was a winner from the start, however Noël and Lanie are still my favourite couple as a whole. I think the reason for that, is because their story took us on more of a journey! There was history there. Where as with Trip and Holly's story it was a whirlwind romance and although they had there ups and downs, they weren't on the scale of Noel and ...more

I just love Michelle Valentines series its my favorite and I am a major doubt!!!!! I really couldn't get enough of that golden ticket!! I love these guys so much...I still want more!!!!!!
Trip freaking rocks!! Wouldn't mind running into a kind of guy like this. I loved that he was able to open his heart again when he met Holly. I was a little shock of his brothers news at the end but I hope and pray that's not the case and he changes his mind.

A bit disappointed. Great story plot but a lot of unanswered questions. The ending fell short. This story had a lot of potential. Hope the next/ last installment will deliver the great ending for this series.

This was a really good story. I liked both Holly and Trip very much and their story was enjoyable and rather sweet.

Holly was a college student but left school to help her father. Her father has a motocross track and it’s not doing great, soon to be foreclosed on by the bank. In an effort to stop this they're desperately looking for investors. Holly had been dating a motocross rider named Jackson (for 2 years) but he missed their 2 year anniversary and then broke up with her (very
