SynopsisFrom USA Today Bestselling Author Nora Flite
She thought she was stepping into fame:
Meeting Drezden Halifax should have been a dream. But dreams are supposed to be sweet, fragile things that whisk you away. Not monsters crafted from hard fingers, gritty vocal cords and a voice so powerful it could tear my guts right out.
Maybe my heart, too.
Becoming the guitarist for Four and a Half Headstones was everything I needed.
Too bad the band's lead singer is doing his best to ruin everything I am.
He thought she would solve his troubles:
Lola Cooper, god damn Lola Cooper. She was the perfect guitarist, fingers that could summon a sweet song or punch a chord. She's supposed to save my band, make us come out of this tour in one piece...
But I just want to tear HER to pieces.
No one should make me feel this way. One look at her, one smell, and I knew I'd have to have her. She does things to me that scare the shit out of me. Make me want to slam her on a wall and listen to her cries: eager or fearful, it doesn't matter.
I'm a monster...
And I don't even care.

Wow what a pleasant surprise! I loved Hard Body Rock by Nora Flite! It was a very quick read with only 130 pages and it moves along fast, but not rushed. It doesn't have a definitive ending but it picks up where it left off in book 2, Slow Body Rock (which I am reading right now).
The story is told by the POVs of Lola and Drezden. Drezden is the hot headed lead singer of Four and a Half Headstones. After he kicks out one of his guitar players while on tour, he needs to find a replacement and he needs to find one fast because their next performance is in two days.
He had a vibe that was overwhelming. It suffocated me, dared me to inhale more or to let myself pass out in a daze. - Lola
Lola is a roadie for her older brother's band, who are touring with the headlining band Four and a Half Headstones. When Sean, Lola's brother hears about the audition for a new guitar player, he finds Lola and tells her to go give it a shot.
Little did she know that she would blow them away with her talent.
She was good. So fucking good, I was falling into the trap of her music. It wrapped me tight, tempting me to sink in and let her keep going. Lola's eyes were closed, lower lip tucked just slightly in her teeth. She was living in that moment like it was her last. I knew that look. The body language of someone in their own creative trance. Every small movement she made was intentional. She traveled across the guitar, a land she'd been living in all her life. There was no part of the instrument, the song, that was a mystery to her. - Drezden
The angst and attraction between Lola and Drezden is undeniable but he doesn't want to destroy the band if things when wrong and Lola doesn't want to risk her future and career. They are both fighting their attraction for each other and I think that it is just a matter of time before they both explode!
Sometimes, even if it was the right decision, choosing music over other things made me feel hollow.I couldn't risk the band over a fucking pair of pretty blue eyes that turned my blood to liquid silver.It was too reckless. For them... And for her. - Drezden
If you enjoy rockers and the rocker life, hot guys, sexual tension, and angst, then go buy it now! But - make sure you buy book 2 too, because it picks up as if you are still reading the same book.
