I like my books like my coffee : Hot and Dark.

My reviews might contain heavy spoilers! Read at your very own risk.


For the last four years, good girl Lane has regretted breaking up with Noel Falcon. She thought she was sensible when she told him his dreams of being a rock star would get him nowhere, but now that he's a rock god and her career is stagnant, she realizes just how wrong she was. When Noel hires the marketing company where Lane is an intern, she’s forced to see him again. If she wants to land her dream job as executive within the company, she has to win him over and secure his account. Too bad Noel is still pissed at her for breaking his heart.

When Lane’s company flies her to a Black Falcon concert to gain Noel’s attention, emotions run high the moment she sees him and realizes she’s far from over him. But Noel’s countless trysts with groupies and his cocky attitude make Lane believe he isn’t the same guy she once loved—now he seems to only want her body. Then after Lane discloses she needs him to procure a job, Noel proves he’s a changed man by forcing her to go on the road with him in order to get it.

After Lane reluctantly takes Noel up on his offer, she becomes willing to do whatever it takes to keep him satisfied, even if it means succumbing to his seductive ways. Lane soon finds deception is a dangerous game and she’s not the only one playing.

I’m familiar to Michelle Valentine’s writings, as a matter of fact I’m a fan of her Hard Knocks  series and I’m so looking forward to read Xavier Cold. Meanwhile I decided to give it a try to her Black Falcon series , even if rock stars are not really my type of reads. Maybe it’s just me but  rock star stories  are a  little too  … unrealistic .

Noel Falcon is the lead guitar player and singer of the Black Falcon rock band. Lanie  is the hardworking good girl who tries to achieve a job at a marketing company.  If she wants to land her dream job as executive within the company, she has to win him over , secure his account and get more info about the Falcon Charity. But she soon finds out that the only reason why she got this chance is because Noel insisted for her to come and travel with the band for two weeks. Now Lane is afraid . Is Noel trying to get her back? Or is it revenge?

 I was about to rate  it  4 stars but as I was reaching the end of the book something happened that made me not like the characters as much as I thought I do. When Lane finds out that Noel is expecting a child with another girl  , she simply did what she does best .  Turning her back on Noel when things are not as she wants them to be. Insane , she left Noel four years ago because she thought that he pays more attention to his music and not to her, even if Noel was obviously madly in love with her and would give an arm just to bring her back. He was left alone and  heartbroken but she didn’t care.

"Just stop. " he closes his eyes. "Just stop, okay ? You're ripping out my heart and you don't even know it. [...] The fact that I'm not allowed to do a God damn thing about it because you're not mine is killing me. ''

  Noel made it clear that he does not love Sophie , he just wants to be a good dad to his kid and prove that he is better than his own father. But of course Lane didn’t want to hear a single word and starts throwing tantrums each time she doesn't get her way. Sweetheart, the world doesn’t revolve around you. To make things even worse , pushed by despair and fear  of losing Lane the second time , Noel ,too , starts acting like a 12 years old .

 But fortunately the plot twist at the end saved the book for me.
