What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?
A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band's publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.
Only problem is, Thea doesn't date clients--or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she's not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.
What she doesn't know is that David is a one-woman man...and he's madly in love with her. David's determined to prove he's worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea's about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.
Best ROCK KISS book yet! I’ve always had a soft spot for drummers, and I KNEW that I was going to fall in love with David right away! Yes ladies, don’t stone me, but I love David more than Fox! The Gentleman of Rock stole my heart in ROCK COURTSHIP, hell he took it and ran off with it in ROCK ADDICTION! Thea and David’s love story is a Rock Star Romance you will never forget!
The thing that I loved most about Rock Courtship, was the fact that we gradually experienced David and Thea’s chemistry and connection, turn into a slow burning love. This isn’t your quick fuck turn into insta-love type deal. Of course there was instant chemistry, but with the two in different countries, the only thing they had were their memos to each other, which I gotta say, was a brilliant idea on Ms. Singh’s part. I absolutely loved the well-written, witty, sexy memos they wrote back and forth to each other. I found myself anticipating them just as much as the characters were. Forget phone sex, MEMO SEX is where i’s at!
Thea was my type of female lead. She is a tough, confident woman on the outside, but had vulnerabilities that us women face every day. These great female leads helps us to connect with the characters right away, which in turn, makes the story that much better. David was a dork turned mega rock star, but that ‘dork’ side of him never really left. Sure he grew up, but that vulnerable boy who NEVER got the girl, was still in that beautiful body of his, itching to get out whenever he felt rejected. David and Thea’s love blossomed, but not without hard work, and working on each other’s insecurities. They made each other whole…complete.
With scorching hot love scenes, and beautiful, raunchy memos that will make you blush, Nalini Singh took it up a notch with ROCK COURTSHIP. Even though this was a novella and a very quick read, it was packed full of yummy rock star goodness you will NOT want to miss!
“Beer—whatever you have on tap,” David said to the grizzled bartender and grabbed a stool, his eye on the rugby game in progress on the TV screen bolted above the bar.
He’d hardly taken a sip of his beer, the dark liquid bitingly cold, when he felt a presence at his back. Instincts honed by a childhood in one of the toughest areas of New York had him focusing on the mirror behind the bar to check out the situation before he turned. A big, bald, and heavily muscled male with a spiderweb tattoo on his neck was standing behind and just to the side of David, a smirk on his pockmarked face.
Belly heating, David turned with a slight smile. “Problem?”
The bald man bared his teeth and, laughing, looked to a table to his right. “Hear that, boys?” he called out to his friends. “The pussy rock star here wants to know if there’s a problem.”
Laughter and shouts from that particular table, while the rest of the men in the bar went quiet. David didn’t move, taking a measure of the players without letting it show. “Always know your opponent” had been one of the first things his father had taught him—Vicente Rivera didn’t believe in turning the other cheek; he believed in teaching his sons how to put bullies on the ground and keep them there.
“Yeah, there’s a problem,” the bald guy said, shoving at David’s shoulder. “This is a real bar for real men. Not pussies.”
Like that, then. Good. He was in the mood to do some violence. Lifting his beer, David took a long drink, then slammed it down… and punched Bald Head in the jaw at the same time that he kicked out with his foot to connect with the other man’s knee. The jackass went down like a ton of bricks.
Roaring in rage, the man’s friends came at David.
He grinned and started to show them what this “pussy rock star” could do.
It wasn’t until they’d broken a table and several chairs, and the bartender had called the cops that David realized Thea would have to deal with the fallout from this. Fuck, fuck, fuck, he thought as he was shoved into a cell alone, his erstwhile opponents in the cell opposite. Sliding down the graffiti-marked wall to the floor, he thought about the phone call the desk sergeant had said he could make and decided against it.
Fox had Molly with him—the band’s lead singer had been waiting for his girl to arrive since the instant Schoolboy Choir set foot in the city. As for Noah and Abe, they both had their own plans. He knew any one of the three men would drop those plans in an instant to come to his aid, but since the cops had made it clear he’d be spending the night in a cell no matter what, why mess up their plans?
“You do or say anything that’ll hit the media, you call me. Day or night. I hate surprises—so don’t you dare surprise me.”
Thea had given that order to all four of them when she’d agreed to act as their publicist. Her up-front nature and dedication to her job was part of the reason they’d hired her; Thea was the best and she didn’t take any shit from her clients. He wasn’t doing himself any favors by not calling her.
Right then, David couldn’t find it in himself to care. It wasn’t as if she could hurt him any more than she already had. And Jesus, how long was he going to carry this torch that was burning him alive? “Fuck, fuck, fuck,” he said aloud, banging the back of his head against the wall.
