book.fave.rave: ROCK THE HEART (Black Falcon #1)
This one's a good rockstar getting back together story
If you liked ROCKED by Olivia Cunning, you'd probably like this as well.
Lane and Noel are quite a pair. It was so obvious from the start of the book that they still loved and wanted each other. I had a good time reading about how futile Lane's attempts on ignoring Noel's seduction. I love it that they didn't really wait too long to get back to each other. I mean, it was pretty fast, but I liked it that way. They were so happy when they got back together that I already knew what's going to happen next. The main conflict? pssshh, I knew it was the generic one. Life in a band couldn't just be peaceful. It's okay, I guess since it all ended good, albeit abrupt.
I think I loved this because of Noel. He's just so irritatingly possessive, sweet, protective and frustrating. He's so sure of himself that it was kinda nice to see him rattled near the end. I loved how he's always saying that he won't let Lane go again and then follows through with his actions. Once scene in particular was soooo adorable that I really do have to share it:
“Oh, hey, Lane, I didn’t see you there. You can go ahead and take your stuff on back to the bedroom.”
Is he serious right now? “Do you think this is some kind of game, Noel?”
He rests his arms causally on the guitar—tattoos directly in my line of site—fully on display. “I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m simply directing a guest, slash employee, where to store her personal belongings. Don’t see much of a game in that.”
can force me to stay here, you’ve—”
In one swift move, Noel leans the guitar against the wall and stands directly in front of me. Damn these tight—spaced buses. He reaches down and grabs my bag. I try to swat away his hands, but he’s too quick.
I stay hot on his heels as he starts down the hallway. “Give me back my stuff.”
“No,” he says before he unzips the suitcase, takes two more steps, and then dumps all the contents on the bed.
The clothes, make-up, and other personal items land in a messy heap on the bed. “You asshole! Why did you do that?”
His eyes meet mine. “Because the sooner you see you aren’t going anywhere the better.”
~~I know that it probably sounds very immature, but I find it twistedly sweet and cute that he's willing to do whatever it takes to keep her with him.
Anyway, I liked this one. I won't be deterred about the abrupt end since I heard that there's a really good epilogue in Noel's pov.
Good read indeed! ;p
P.S. I love FAITHFULLY. :)
