Rock the City brings us the story of Noelle and Lane. For those that don’t remember, Lane is the drummer for Midnight Fate and Noelle is Lark’s bestie who talked her into the cruise, hoping to find true love. There was a hint of a blooming romance between these two as we closed out the book one, but now we get to see it from their point of view.

I did enjoy this story but I sort of wanted it to begin at the start for these two. I love the anticipation of the relationship forming. That first encou

☆☆Reviewed by Hooked On Books and CherryOBlossoms Promotions ☆☆

I gave this book 4.5 stars!

This book was more than what I was expecting. Lane and Noelle have off the charts chemistry. There is twist, turns and very HOT sex scenes. Lane and Noelle both have to come to terms with their past and their demons. When push comes to shove can these two have their HEA?

The emotions are real, raw and gritty. Be fore warn that you might need a tissue or two. The storyline deals with everyday real situations

Rock the City is the second book in A Midnight Fate series. This is the first book I've read by this author and was told it could be read as a standalone. I felt that I was missing some key points by not reading book one. I do plan on reading the first book, Rock the Boat, to hopefully answer some of those lingering questions.

This book is the focus of Lane Lewis, the drummer for Midnight Fate. He met Noelle Nash just before the band was to go on tour six months prior t

Rock The City is the second book in the exciting Midnight Fate series, but can totally be read as a stand-alone. Told from dual points of view, Rock The City follows the story of Noelle and Lane. Noelle is a hopeless romantic, but life has made her question her feelings on love. It wasn’t until Lane came around that she was willing to give love another try. Lane makes her want things she never thought possible and now she will do anything to hold on to that. But, being

I loved it! It was a little more serious than I thought but no less interesting. I liked the story. I'm already in love with the amazing characters from "Rock the Boat" so that hasn't changed. It's quite well-written and very entertaining book.

Lane has a dark past about which no one knows. He doesn't want to revisit it. And now he has found Noelle, a beautiful woman whom he can easily love. She is perfect for him and in his heart he knows that she is the one. The only problem seems to be her unw

This book was so incredibly good and very different from most rockstar books. This book.had way more meaning and real life issues in it. It doesn't revolve around guy searching for his next hook up. This is going down as one of my favorite reads so far this year. I only wish I had a chance to read book 1 already. I will definitely be going back to do that ASAP!

Lane grew up in very poor conditions as a child. He made it out of that life alive and made something of himself. He decided he would nev

Rock the city can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading Rock the Boat first, it will set up the characters that you will see in this book, but will not take away from Lane & Noelle's story if you don't.

Everyone is back on dry land, but the "rocking" is not stopping is just getting started.
Lane & Noelle are about to be tested on what they handle from their past and how it will affect their future. Things are going to change for both of

I was a huge fan of Rock the Boat and I not so patiently waited for more Midnight Fate. Lane Lewis was a true hero who happened to be melted sex on a stick. I loved Noelle and the vulnerability she hid with her dirty mouth. The chemistry between them was combustible and the love they shared was beautiful. Gia gave us another beautifully written story of love that conquers all the odds.

Rock the City is a wonderful thunderstorm that is sure to sink its nails into your heart and send you on an emotional roller coaster.

This is more than just a romance or two people falling in love. Its discovering your future and fighting for it even when unforseen obstacles threaten that future. Its about real life because nothing is perfect, bad shit happens, and you must learn to stick it out through the storm. That is what Rock the City is all about. Yes, you still get steamy sex scenes and a

"I'm ready for the lights to dim and the rest of the world to fade away."

Rock the City by Author Gia Riley is book two in the Midnight Fate series but can be read as a standalone. It is a rocker romance novel.

“You don’t have to sell it to me, Lane. I’m a sure thing.”

Noelle is the BFF that we all fell in love with in Rock the Boat, the first book in this series. She always comes to the rescue for those she loves; she just needs someone to rescue her back and Lane may just be the man for the job.

Is there a better way than to start reading a book and get addicted after reading only the prologue? With this beginning this book promises.
"Rock the City" is the second book of the series "The Midnight Fate Novel" and I have been waiting for so long that the expectation was very high because after reading "Rock the Boat" I was afraid that this book could not take a special place in my heart but I was so wrong, this story will leave you breathless.

I love when stories take an unexpected twist and go in a different direction than you expected. Rock the City transformed into a story that was heartfelt, centered on family and trust. I was extremely curious what the story would be about when the couple in the book was already established. Noelle was one of my favorite characters from Rock the Boat and the fact she gets her own story was wonderful!

Rock the City starts with a prologue that sets the stage. A mutual attraction and spark is present

Just when I thought Gia Riley couldn't surprise me, she puts out Rock the City. Full of heart, heat, humor and hope this is my new favorite from Riley. The main reason being Noelle. If you've read Rock the Boat then you know all about this firecracker. I was pleased to see the rest of Midnight Fate along for the ride in this one too. Easton and Lark make a few hilarious appearances that gave this book the lightness it needed.

From her sharp tongue to her soft heart you can't help but love Noelle.

Ok so I'll be honest and admit that it took me a little bit to get into the story, then BAM! Gia hits me with the drama! Just what I needed. At this point I wanted to throat punch someone!

This was my first Gia book and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last. I fell for the characters immediately! It's a pretty good read with some angst and all the craziness it brings.

Lane the drummer! Have I said how much I love drummers? No? Well I freakin love them. Especially Lane. He's super funny, sweet, and although you wouldn't think it with his broodiness.... romantic. Completely swoon worthy

Rock The City is the second book in the Midnight Fate series and follows Lane, the bands drummer, and Noelle. We met both characters in Rock the Boat and it was nice to come back to see what happened after the cruise where they met.
Noelle and Lane are both well developed characters that you enjoy spending time with and want to root for as they face the challenges of life. Initially, it seems like the drama is going to center around how they are going to manage to physically be together after th

Rock The City was a love story of two people facing obstacles and circumstances that many relationships don't survive. For Lane and Noelle their love only grew stronger.
