Book Description

New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Series

Twenty-year-old Holly Pearson never dreamed that while working at her father’s motocross track she’d run into the walking, talking definition of trouble in a sexy, tattooed package—Trip Douglas, the man sent to evaluate the track for a possible investment opportunity. Holly makes no attempt to hide the fact she despises Trip, but she learns to be civil toward him when he offers to help her land the man of her dreams.

Trip needs a break from the crazy rock-and-roll lifestyle he’s been living for the past few years. With his Black Falcon band mates settling down with marriage and babies, Trip peruses an investment opportunity in motocross, something he’s always been passionate about. Hiding his celebrity status, Trip infiltrates the new business posing as a dirt bike rider training for the X-Games. The only obstacle is the owner’s daughter, Holly. She’s a real ball bustin' Ice Queen, and she’ll do whatever it takes to make the deal fall through. Trip soon discovers that winning over his new enemy is the key to gaining a partnership in Mountain Time Speed Track.

Knowing he’s the expert on getting laid, Trip ropes Holly into becoming his ally by helping her score a date with the man she’s crushing on. The problem is, the more time Trip and Holly spend together, the more they uncover the undeniable attraction between them. Soon they both realize that even the best laid plans go to hell when you find you’re falling in love with the enemy.

**Book THREE in the Black Falcon series. Can also be read as a stand alone novel.**

Praise for ROCK THE BEAT:

"I also was pleased to see that Trip is doing something different than the others - this is not another book on the tour bus. That's been played out and Michelle was smart to find Trip a different storyline. I felt like we get to see a side of Trip that we didn't necessarily get with Noel and Riff. We get a more "real" version of Trip Douglas"--A Book Whores Obsession

"This book is freaking awesome! I don't know how Michelle does it, but she doesn. Every.Single.Time! Each book in the Black Falcon series gets better and better."--Island Lovelies Book Club

"The storytelling and the intricate storyline that Michelle delivers shows the depth of her writing abilities. She has the capability of creating a unique story that will keep you turning the pages till the very end."--Wolfel's World of Books

Editorial Reviews


"When I see something I want, I go after it. And that night, I wanted you." ~Trip, Rock the Beat

Wonderful story about down to earth Holly who has endured a boyfriend from hell only to meet up with Trip the drummer from Black Falcon. Emotional ride with all sweet Holly has going on in her life!!!!!

Trip has a mouth like no other and when these two get together prepare for some witty come backs and definite fireworks! I loved the book and wanted more more more! A brief glimpse of the whole gang brought back fond memories now what will Tyke have in store fir us? I'm a little nervous

Another AWESOME 5 star read from the Black Falcon series!!!!! A MUST read book and series!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock the Trip!!!! October 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Trip has been a man slut far too long. He's about to prove it again at a club but, Max pulls Holly away before he does. This one he's going to have to work for. And he does. Michelle rocked the storyline. Only complaint? Wish it were longer. Would have loved to see a bit further past the gathering. I'm sure the story will continue with the next book but, this one kind of left me wanting a bit more of Trip and Holly's story. Anyway, the story is great and flows smoothly. Had to read it in one sitting which drives my family to restaurants to eat but, saves me having to cook.... a win win for me. Trip's charming and witty personality is a terrific match to Holly's "Surrounded by jerks" and never understanding her worth personality. Her best friend Max has been trying to explain all of this to her but, she's hardheaded and couldn't see the truth in front of her. When her eyes are finally opened she gets hit from all four sides. Michelle's "Rock The" series is a great read. Rock the Beat is included. We also get a gift at the end of the book "Rock the Beginning" a novella about Noel and Laney's beginning and almost end. Explains the song "Ball Busting Bitch" in Rock the Heart. Loved the book and I love the series. Five stars earned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the ending!?? November 2, 2013
By Abby
Format:Kindle Edition
I have loved every other book in this series and I was so excited for this book to come out, but there was no ending?? No conclusion whatsoever and it really wasn't even a cliffhanger like I've seen in other books.... Just ends in the middle. I kept going back through my kindle book thinking I had pushed a wrong button or something and had missed part, but after seeing other reviewers' complaints, I see I am not alone. Such a shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best One Yet!!!!! October 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
**ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**

5 Trippy Stars!!!!!

Well let me say that I think this book was my favorite of the series so far. I have loved all the books, but for some reason this one was just AMAZING!!!! My only real complaint is that I wish it would've been longer. This book was a really quick read, one because it seemed shorter then the other books in the series, but also because once you start this book you won't be able to put it down. I read this book in less then a day. This is the 3rd full length book in the series and what an addition it was to this series. Rock the Beat is the story of Trip Douglas, Black Falcon's Drummer, and Holly. One thing I really liked about this book was that it was completely separate from the other books. We don't actually see the other band mates until close to the end of the book, which I was completely fine with. In Rock My Bed I was a little put off that it ran concurrent with the time frame of Rock the Heart because it didn't feel like that is was only Riff and Aubrey story. In this addition we totally get only Trip and Holly's story. Tyke does pop here and there but the main focus of this story is Trip. What I absolutely LOVED about this book was the drama factor was pretty mild, which to me was quite refreshing. Yes there was an ex who caused some trouble and some secrets that went untold for awhile, but once things came out into the open we didn't get the over dramatization where someone runs for the hills. The drama is actually over pretty quickly!!!!!

The story begins pretty much where Rock my Bed ends and the band is on a short break. Trip is looking for something to pass his time while on hiatus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trip October 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved me some Trip, "I eye her daisy-duke covered a** appreciatively while her head's turned. If she catches me eye-effing her, she'll smack the s*** out of me, but it's worth the risk." He's not bashful when it comes to his body and I love that in a man, "you want my help or not?" When I don't answer right away, he drums his fingers on the counter. "I'm waiting... I can stand here like this all day. I have no problem showing off what God blesses me with, and when I say blesses, well you know. You've seen it." And he's so cocky also another big trait I love in a man, "believe me, sweetness, you're inexperienced until you've been with me. If I effed you, I'd take you to a whole other level." I hope a novella comes out with Trip and Holly.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVING this series October 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Michelle Valentine is a genius, The Black Falcon series is amazing! Once you start this book you won't want to put it down. The only downside it was to short, I wanted more! Lol

Trip is the sexy as drummer of Black Falcon. I loved Trip he is cocky, cheeky, flirty and a dirty talker. I'm still swooning for him.

While on a break from the band Trip decides to go looking for something else, he decides to check out a motor cross track he is thinking of investing in. It's at the track he meets Holly.
Holly has been recently dumped by her douche boyfriend Jackson (while he is a douche the way he is described Channing Tatum cross David Beckham, YUM).
After being dumped the last thing Holly wants is a stereotype man like Trip, Holly and Trip don't hit it off straight away, she is a feisty thing that keeps him at arms length, I loved the banter between these two.

"I promise you'll love the way I fu€kyou"

Holly isn't over Jackson when Trip decides to play her boyfriend to make Jackson jealous they end up becoming closer and Holly soon finds out that Trip is not the man she first thought her was.

"I don't think it's ever going to go away for me. I'm addicted. You're stuck with me"

There is so much more I could say about this book but I don't want to spoil it for everyone else. If you loved Noel and Lane, Riff and Aubrey's story then you are going to love Trip and Holly's story. Their story is different to the others but Trip will have you swooning long after you have finished the book. Oh have to say I absolutely loved Holly's relationship with her best friend Max.

"Let's get your drunk-ass home before I have to peel you off another huge mistake with a p€nis"

See what are bestfriends for!

I was a bit apprehensive after reading the first few chapters, because Holy seemed like the typical indecisive female that I don't like. I'm glad I was wrong about her. Read more
