Wealthy businessman Gabriel Bishop rules the boardroom with the same determination and ruthlessness that made him a rock star on the rugby field. He knows what he wants, and he'll go after it no holds barred. And what he wants is Charlotte Baird.

Charlotte knows she's a mouse. Emotionally scarred and painfully shy, she just wants to do her job and remain as invisible as possible. But the new CEO - a brilliant, broad-shouldered T. rex of a man who growls and storms through the office, leaving carnage in his wake - clearly has other plans. And these plans may be equal parts business and bedroom.

If Charlotte intends to survive this battle of wits and hearts, the mouse will have to learn to wrangle the T. rex. Game on.

I made a huge mistake with this book..... I started to listen to it quite late in the evening and, because the well paced story was romantic, captivating and all its characters were so likeable, I just couldn't stop listening and kept fooling myself with thoughts of "oh, just one more chapter" until I finally thought "well there's only five chapters left I might as well finish it". I know I know I have no willpower and since joining Audible I've seen a lot of early dawns creeping in but, when the book's characters are so alluring and the storyline is funny, sad, tender, sexy, sweet, touching, romantic and there's witty banter too, then I'm a sucker for a love story with a HEA ending.

Gabriel, the very handsome workaholic playboy, has come in as CEO to rescue a failing Company but he's ruthless, focussed, driven and is very intelligent so it doesn't take him long to see that one of his employees, the shy, mousey little Charlotte with her baggy ill-fitting clothes, is actually highly intelligent and is in the wrong position in the Company so promotes her to be his P.A. But, as soon as he does, Gabriel realises that he's physically and mentally drawn to her and can see beyond her layers of protection to the little gem hidden beneath so he does what he does best.... makes careful plans to win the affections and trust of his timid little mouse. However, he soon discovers that his plans will have to be long-term plans as the more he sees Charlotte flinching and freezing up at his touch the more he painfully realises that she's been a victim of something terrible but it doesn't deter this now focussed and reformed playboy.

Yes, Charlotte has been a victim and her horrific ordeal is told in this listen but, with the help of her best friend Molly (from book 1) and over several months of working for sexy Alpha Gabriel (dubbed as T Rex by her), she slowly gains confidence, stands up for herself and snipes back.... which is just what Gabriel had planned. Then her fears turn into longings, she sees the caring family man behind Gabriel's ruthless facade, she also sees the deep attraction for her that he's not hiding any longer and the patience he's endured. But can she tell him her secret, will it scare him off, will she ever enjoy being touched again, is there any hope of a future for Gabriel and herself and will she survive when her abusive ex-boyfriend is released from prison???

Worth a credit? Dual POV's, a very good narrator who did a sexy Alpha male voice with ease, a patient, loyal, loving and swoon worthy Hero and an enjoyable well-written plot that had a lot of character growth and development as the Hero drew in his claws and the Heroine finally found hers. So YES worth a credit and I haven't yet come across a Nalini Singh book that wasn't worth a credit..... that's why her books are an auto buy for me.

Appreciated the writer, storyline, location...more

What did you love best about Rock Hard?

The story was well written, underlying issues being addressed not lost, and the chemistry sizzling.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Charlotte (Charlie) as she conquered so much during the length of the tale.

What does Justine O. Keef bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Justine O. Keef is an great narrator - period.

Any additional comments?

My only reason to not give this audible experience 5 stars all the way around is that this book is centered in New Zealand and I think the book deserves a narrator with experience in New Zealand (a Kiwi perhaps) or an English ex-pat who has spent time in New Zealand. Pronunciation, knowledge of the country, and tone, could really bring this book to another level of experience. I am not suggesting a deep kiwi accent in the book, but a recognizable softened accent would nevertheless add to the experience and help set the book apart perhaps from every other American-read narration. Certainly Charlotte would be a kiwi I would expect.

A fantastic listen!

Would you consider the audio edition of Rock Hard to be better than the print version?

I only listened so I have no idea but I enjoyed the narrator and felt they added to the story.

What did you like best about this story?

Okay so this was really good. The story layers intersected beautifully. There were reasons for the character motivations. The male lead worked hard to give space and time to the female lead whoneeded it. It took time for them to actually get to the physical part and there was follow up for why. I did not review the first book in this series because I did not feel the same way but this book exceeded my expectations and I applaude Ms. Singh for truly hitting the mark.

What about Justine O. Keef’s performance did you like?

Her performance was impassioned and well done. I am always astounded when I forget a female is reading a male role. Bravo!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Holding back from passion takes strength but the bond it forms is Rock Hard.

Best so far

This novel in the series has the most depth of character. It's not heart wrenching deep but the author's character development keeps improving with each installment. No rockers in this book, however.

Very strong story. Even better than the first. Gabriel was strong and perfect. So steadfast for his woman.

Not A Keeper for Me

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

I dislike this story it's so...predictable just like other contemporaries where the women are soft and supposed to be smart and yet make herself vulnerable, why is it that she knows theres a threat to herself and make no move to take self-defense classes etc to keep herself safe? Why did Nalini Singh make her female character so blah..I'm not liking her other contemporary either why did she make the leading ladies so lame..?BLAH..

Nalini Singh Is My Catnip. Seriously.

What made the experience of listening to Rock Hard the most enjoyable?

One trait of any book always catches my attention, and if done well, is one that pulls me back over and over. Character development. This book has that in spades. Charlotte and Gabriel both have experienced heartache and tragedy in their lives, but they confront those issues head on to conquer and overcome.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rock Hard?

Every time I read the scene of Gabriel sending the roses made from pages of novels to Charlotte, I sigh deep inside.

What about Justine O. Keef’s performance did you like?

The narrator did a great job of differentiating between the characters. I've listened to the book so many times by now that I can tell the subtle shift of tone when she changes to a different character. However, it may take a few listens for others, as well, to be able to hear the small changes. Sometimes, they come across as the same.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene where Charlotte and Molly are telling each other to "Be brave," or lose out on actually living their lives. It really emphasized their relationship.

Any additional comments?

The story is a soft, intense, lovely testament without all the angst and drama one would typically find in a tale such as this. I also appreciated the humor. The chapter titles can attest to that. There was more than one scene that had me grinning or laughing out loud. <br/><br/>All in all, this was a good book—fluffy with a harder core. Just enough to make me read it, and listen to it, many times. I highly recommend anything by this author, but you can always start with this book.<br/><br/>Happy Listening!<br/>

Great Series..usually great narrator

It's a great series, really. Great narrator, normally.

I don't know they decided to make heroine in this one sound like an idiotic cartoon character. It pissed me off. Because the heroine was smart they needed her to sound stupid?

Typical. I'm bent on this, it really pissed me off and ruined the audio book. Well done producer... I'm assuming your a male dick head.
