Book: Rock My Bed
Author: Michelle A. Valentine
Series: Black Falcon #2
Everything always seems to fall into place for twenty-four year-old Aubrey Jenson, except for when it comes to her luck with men. Bad boys always draw her in and crush her heart, and Black Falcon’s lead guitarist, Riff, is no exception. After sharing a few wild nights together, she leaves him behind, knowing a guy like Riff isn’t the relationship type, merely just a play thing.
When she returns to New York, she tries to get the passion she felt in Riff’s arms out of her head by dating Isaac, a successful representative at Center Stage Marketing. Just when she thinks she’s forgotten Riff, she’s forced to see him again when her best friend, Lanie, ropes her into being a bridesmaid for her upcoming wedding to Black Falcon front man, Noel.
Sparks fly instantly between Aubrey and Riff when they’re forced to reunite, and suddenly she finds herself caught between the man that’s good for her and the one who completely rocks her in every way.
I was so excited for this one! I loved Riff from the get go! I knew he was something special! I was not disappointed at all! I loved everything about this one. I also loved how it was the first book pretty much but showing you what happened when we saw the small parts of him in the first book. I LOVE when books do that to be honest. It fills in that need to know, “what the hell happened with so & so” now you don’t have to wonder so much about what happened with him, because we get to see. 🙂 I love his forwardness, and vulgar talk. (okay to others it may be vulgar, I call it sweet talk 😉 ) for example:
“Let me have just one night to fuck you senseless. I guarantee I’ll have you speaking in tongues before the nights through.”
I can only agree with Aubrey when she says:
“There’s just something about him that screams naughty sex on a stick,”
That is exactly what I thought when I read about him! Naughty sex, and well who could go wrong with that? But then we get to see into the heart of him. Just a little. He does let us see his softer side. Explains why Oreo’s are so damn important to him and why he will kill someone over them! There is quite a bit that we do get to learn about him. Which made me fall more in love with his broken spirit! We get to see that he is not this rock god, he is a normal person with issues just like the next person. He does act like a complete asshole at one point and I wanted to reach into my iPad and just slap him and tell him “STOP BEING AN IDIOT”. Michelle has made me fall even more in love with a fictional character that I loved to begin with and I do have to say that we BETTER get a novella for him also! Lol Yes I won’t be happy till I can get me another Riff fix!! I cannot wait to see where things go from here for Riff and Aubrey. There is a lot he has to work on and through.
I did feel like it was WAY too short, that may be in part that since I love me some Riff I never seem to get enough and this was NOT enough! I finished and wanted to call Michelle and tell her okay now I got questions and want answers… I know it won’t be the last we hear of him since we still have Tyke and Trip to go and I know he will be in the background of those since they are all in a band together and all. But I did feel like there were some things that were touched on, but didn’t get the closure I wanted on them…like his father. So that just MUST mean she is going to do a novella right? Well either way I will be keeping my eye out for a new Michelle Valentine book! I have yet to come across one of her books that I haven’t liked yet.
Some of my favorite Quotes:
- Kitten, I’m the baddest, bad-boy you’ll ever need.
- It’s cute you want to play dominatrix with me, but babe, it really isn’t necessary. I’ve fucking wanted you from the moment I laid eyes on you.
- You were never that to me. I can’t explain it but right from the start I knew you were special. Theirs something about you that pulls me in.
- Your mouth said no, but your body said yes.
I am so excited, I get to go and see Riff again. I am sure he won’t remember me since well, now that he is with Aubrey all girls in the world have disappeared and blurred into the background. I am sure we won’t have a repeat of our last interview. Just thinking about it makes me smile! I figured that this time meeting him where there is no alcohol around would be best. I turn into an instant slut it seems like once I start drinking. And I am not one to try and move in on another woman’s man so I think it is best to just keep the alcohol out of it for now. He suggested that we meet back in his hotel room, I am not sure if Aubrey is going to be there with him, it would be fun to actually meet the one who captured the mighty Riff.
The cab stops in front of the hotel and I pay my fare, then get out and head in. I go up to the front desk and ask if they could call his room and let him know that I am on my way up. I know we had a set time and all but I wanted to just make sure he gets a heads up. Even though this is the third time I am going to be seeing him I still get the butterflies and sweaty palms. I stand outside his room. I reach into my purse and grab a piece of gum. Nothing worse than talking to someone with some foul breath. Been there done that. I knock and wait for him to answer. I knock again and then hear him yell out that he is coming. The door opens and I can’t help but flush as memories come flooding in. He opens the door with just a pair of pants on, his hair is wet and he is barefoot. I swear there is nothing more attractive than a man in just jeans and nothing else… add covered in tattoos and a few piercings. Oh my word. I catch myself staring and I hear him laugh.
B ~ Hey you, how ya doing? Sorry, didn’t mean to stare but I forgot how hot you are. *smiling*
R ~ *Laughs* I remember you! Too bad I’m off the market now. You were a lot of fun.
He steps aside and lets me in. I look around and try to see if Aubrey is here but I don’t see her or hear her so I am guessing she is out for now. He asks if I want anything to drink I ask for water and he grabs himself a beer and goes to sit on the couch and then he pats the couch and tells me to park it so we can get started.
B ~ Well then I am guessin you want to get this over with so lets get to it then. So you are my absolute favorite, if you couldn’t tell. There is just something special about you I don’t know what exactly it is, that is until we get to see a softer side to you. I knew that I loved you for a reason. First I have to say that I loved the Cat and Mouse game. So at what point did you know what you felt for her was more than what you were really comfortable with?
R ~ When she started asking about my family. I knew then she was trying to get to know me as a person and wanted to go deeper than the fun we were having.
B ~ Your dad, let me just say I wanted to beat his ass. So I do hope that he stays gone! Do you believe that now he will?
R ~ I hope so because I’m fucking done with his shit.
B ~ Well I hope he does too, so what was your real reason as to why you told Lane about what was going on with Noel and Sophie? I mean I wanted to believe it was because you truly didn’t want to see her get hurt but at the same time I can’t help but believe that you just wanted to piss him off.
R ~ *Nods* Pissing him off was part of it. He deserved to be miserable.
B ~ I know you had said that Trip and Tyke knew about your past but have you told Noel everything? I noticed that you had talked about how the twins were there and helped you through it all but you never said anything about Noel knowing.
R ~ *Shakes head* He knows, but not the details like Trip and Tyke do. I would prefer to keep that shit under wraps.
B ~ Okay… Sex… have to say that I loved the kinky little session you guys had! So have you guys added to your collection?
R ~ *Grins Wickedly* We did. We dove into some food play.
B ~ Ohhh food play is HOT! But then ANYTHING with you is HOT! *winks* What happens when you are a bad boy? *blushing from the memories that come to mind*
R ~ *Sets eyes on Brandy* I think you already know the answer to that one.
B ~ *clearing throat* So the whole Oreo Cookies thing to be honest I thought it was kind of a sexual reference with the whole cream in the middle stuff *laughing* learning what it was truly about just warmed my heart and made me fall even more in love with you. Are you still lethal when it comes to sharing your cookies or are you getting better at sharing? Sharing is caring you know. *winking at him*
R ~ I’m working on sharing and opening up more. It’s a hard fucking stretch for me, though,
B ~ It will get easier in time. Okay Aubrey’s boss… tell us how you really felt about him… *laughing*
R ~ That Ken doll fucker better pray I don’t see him again.
B ~ Well I can’t wait to hear more about you, you are a bit of an addiction to me. *winking* oh crap I almost forgot I wasn’t sure if your girl was going to be here or not but since she isn’t I will just give it to you.
Reaching into my purse I grab out a jewelry box and hand it over to him. He opens it and smiles.
B ~ I have one of my own. I had to buy it because I just can’t look at Oreos without thinking of you. After finding out why you love them so I had to get one for her too. She is a lucky girl. I know you may not see it but she absolutely is!
R ~ *Looks up from the box with a smile* Thank you. I’m working on that.
B ~ Well I will let you go, until next time, sweetie pie.
R ~ *Hugs Brandy* Thank you. Always a pleasure….
We both stand and walk towards the door. I stop and turn towards him and can’t help myself.
B ~ I don’t know if I ever thanked you after our last interview. Dessert was ‘devine’ *smirking*
I stand up on my tip toes wrap my arms around him to give him a hug, pull away and kiss the corner of his mouth then step back. I don’t want to make him uncomfortable. I am not trying to get in his pants, ‘this time’.
R ~ *laughs* You were my most memorable interview.
