Rock Hard - Nalini Singh

Ex-rugby star and current businessman, Gabriel Bishop, shakes things up as the new CEO of Saxon & Archer. Recognizing the shy Charlotte Baird’s talent, he promotes her to his personal assistant, and he has every intention of getting personal with Ms. Baird.

I love how all the Rock Kiss stories take place at the same time and overlap with the other stories.


I think it is great that Gabriel sees beyond Charlotte’s baggy clothes and timid personality. He appreciates her for her mind and realizes that she had a troubled past, being cautious when handling her. He is extremely intelligent and perceptive. I think it is impressive that he is successful at business after his career-ending rugby injury. I also, enjoyed his creative gifts.


Charlotte is so sweet you can’t help but like her. She struggles with her abusive past but tries to overcome it. I like that she sticks up for herself around Gabriel and doesn’t let him bully her around. I think it is hilarious how CharIotte and Gabriel first meet. She is as good for him as he is for her. I respect her growth and determination throughout the novel.


The new contract term emails toward the first half of the story, and the negotiation lists at the end of the novel are priceless. They are very witty and made me laugh.


As always, Nalini Singh’s writing style is incredible. Rock Hard has an excellent flow and extraordinary plot that is thought-provoking.
