*A Novella in the New York Times and USA Today best-selling Black Falcon series*
After Aubrey Jenson is wrongly dismissed from her job at Center Stage Marketing, she seeks legal advice from her father, The Judge, to see what grounds she has to get her position reinstated. Her surprise visit to her family doesn’t go as smoothly as she hopes when she brings home her new boyfriend, Zach, Black Falcon’s lead guitarist. She soon discovers that father doesn’t always know best when it comes to matters of the heart.
When Zach meets Aubrey’s family, he’s immediately faced with his deepest fear: The love he so desperately wants, he doesn’t deserve. The Judge makes no attempt to hide his disdain for Zach, and will stop at nothing to keep him away from his daughter. But an unexpected twist turns everyone’s plans upside down and no one’s world will ever be the same.
Outside forces attempting to pull them apart are strong and it’s going to take every bit of Zach and Aubrey’s love for one another to withstand the fall-out. Soon, they discover making love last is harder than finding it to begin with and sometimes you pay the ultimate price for true love.

This novella had me steaming like an old school freight train that had no ability to stop!! Zach (Riff) and Aubrey are my all-time favorite couple. Something about Zach feeling and being so broken inside regarding “family” and all the pain that brings him has me wanting to hold and comfort him–hell, who wouldn’t??!! Aubrey is freakishly strong and powers her way through hell to prove herself to her family that she knows what’s best for her. This may be just a “novella”, but it has all the angst and intensity that all of Michelle Valentine’s full-length Black Falcon novels entail. So in my mind, it’s not just a “novella” it’s a GD full-force Valentine-masterpiece and I wanna give it more than 5 stars!! There was anger, heartache, sorrow, passion, joy, need (“I need you.” “I need to be inside you. I need to feel you.”), and purity (“That’s right. You have a thing for bad boys.” “Only bad boys with hearts made of gold.”). Oh and have I mentioned the steam? “I’ll buy you fifty fucking new ones. They were in my way and had to go.” Ok, just checking. So in a nut shell, don’t pass up Rock my World thinking “oh it’s just a novella” or thinking “not much will happen, I’ll just wait till Rock the Beat releases” because I’m here to tell you that you’ll be missing out, on A TON!!! As I said earlier, in length it may be a novella but girth, oh shit sorry, I mean heart and soul it’s the ENTIRE PACKAGE from beginning to end. Gaaaah and how it ends is just perfect because you know it’s not “really the end” and gets you all excited for Rock the Beat to continue in Black Falcon’s journey. Michelle, I love your face and you Rocked. My. World (well so did Zach & Aubrey)! Ladies, Give it a try!! Rating: 5 stars Reviewed by Kara
