Rock the Beat (Black Falcon #3) by Michelle A. Valentine

The Book
Release Date: 29 October 2013

Twenty-year-old Holly Pearson never dreamed that while working at her father’s motocross track she’d run into the walking, talking definition of trouble in a sexy, tattooed package—Trip Douglas, the man sent to evaluate the track for a possible investment opportunity. Holly makes no attempt to hide the fact she despises Trip, but she learns to be civil toward him when he offers to help her land the man of her dreams. 

Trip needs a break from the crazy rock-and-roll lifestyle he’s been living for the past few years. With his Black Falcon band mates settling down with marriage and babies, Trip peruses an investment opportunity in motocross, something he’s always been passionate about. Hiding his celebrity status, Trip infiltrates the new business posing as a dirt bike rider training for the X-Games. The only obstacle is the owner’s daughter, Holly. She’s a real ball bustin' Ice Queen, and she’ll do whatever it takes to make the deal fall through. Trip soon discovers that winning over his new enemy is the key to gaining a partnership in Mountain Time Speed Track.

Knowing he’s the expert on getting laid, Trip ropes Holly into becoming his ally by helping her score a date with the man she’s crushing on. The problem is, the more time Trip and Holly spend together, the more they uncover the undeniable attraction between them. Soon they both realize that even the best laid plans go to hell when you find you’re falling in love with the enemy.

**Book THREE in the Black Falcon series. Can also be read as a stand alone novel.**

My Opinion  4 STARS
I loved Trip and Holly's story.

They meet when Trip goes to look at an investment and finds the Track that Holly and her father run. However her father is ill and the track has been losing money and is about to default on the payments.

Holly has just broken up with her boyfriend of two years Jackson when he confessed to having slept around when she went to college for the last year. Her tells her after not having turned up to celebrate their two year anniversary. Her best friend Max (who is also gay) has never liked Jackson.

Trip and Holly have an instant attraction that follows them from a drunken night out before they finally met in the day time the next day after a heat searing kiss.

Jackson however does not like the fact she has moved on so easily even if at first it is just for show. She finds out Jacksons true colours whilst slowly falling in love with Trip. However Holly does not know that a secret investor is really Trip, and she doesn't know that he is the drummer in Black Falcon as she doesn't follow the band.

There are punch ups, shock reveals and sexual tension along with good dialogue. I love the Black Falcon series and can't wait to read Tyke's story. I would also love one for Max as he too deserves a happy ending.
