Rockin Reviews – Hard Body Rock Nora Flite
Meeting Drezden Halifax should have been a dream. But dreams are supposed to be sweet, fragile things that whisk you away. Not monsters crafted from hard fingers, gritty vocal cords and a voice so powerful it could tear my guts right out.
Maybe my heart, too.
Becoming the guitarist for Four and a Half Headstones was everything I needed.
Too bad the band’s lead singer is doing his best to ruin everything I am.
He thought she would solve his troubles:
Lola Cooper, god damn Lola Cooper. She was the perfect guitarist, fingers that could summon a sweet song or punch a chord. She’s supposed to save my band, make us come out of this tour in one piece…
But I just want to tear HER to pieces.
No one should make me feel this way. One look at her, one smell, and I knew I’d have to have her. She does things to me that scare the shit out of me. Make me want to slam her on a wall and listen to her cries: eager or fearful, it doesn’t matter.
I’m a monster…
And I don’t even care

I’ve been overdosing on rock and roll reads lately and most of the m/f variety but some m/m is coming so stay tuned. However this read by Nora Flite definitely kept me interested. It starts with a fight within the band Four and a Half Headstones. (love the name) The singer Drezden and the guitarist get into a squabble so bad, Drezden ends up kicking Johnny out. Enter in young female guitarist, Lola Cooper who’s brother Sean is from another band called Barbed Wire. He encourages her to try out for Four and a Half who is one of the biggest hard rock bands known to man. When Lola goes to try out, she makes it in and basically sparks fly between her and Drezden leaving both of them confused and wondering if they really should do something about their attraction or stay away so they wouldn’t cause any friction. No sex in this book, not even kisses and the sexual tension in this book can’t be cut with a butcher knife.
Wow is all I can say. I was blown away with the descriptions by the author from the way Lola played as well as the band’s sound. And as I said, I really enjoyed all the tension between these two and want to know more about what happens to them in the next book. Even better, Mrs. Flite captured rock life on the road perfectly; caravans of fans following you city to city, groupies throwing themselves at you, and band members having tense moments while they practice. All real!
What a great read. I’m looking forward to finishing out this series since there are 3 more books. I’ll make sure and do a review for the rest when I’m done.
