Review: Rock Hard by Christine Bell

Three HOT novellas, three happy endings!

Book One: QUINN
Quinn Myles loves her life. She’s in a kick-a$$ rock band and they’re on their way to the big-time. If only her two band-mates hadn’t told her how they felt, she could have controlled her own desires. Now, choosing between them might tear the band apart...unless she can have them both.

Book Two: BEAU
When they hire a chef to come on tour with the band, Beau Trudeau finds a welcome distraction in quirky Gigi Somerville. But when she asks him to help her get rid of her pesky virginity? Suddenly, Gigi doesn't seem so harmless. In fact, he can't stop thinking about her...

Book Three: TAI
Since Christa Reilly broke his heart ten years ago, Tai Madsen has steered clear of emotional attachments. Now she comes barreling back into his life, talking about forgiveness. He lets her know that a reunion isn’t on the menu but he’d be happy talk to her…after some hot, sweaty sex, of course. The thought of slumming again will surely send her running back to Daddy. But what if it doesn't?

WARNING: This book contains contains graphic, steamy, frequent love scenes as well as an M/F/M menage. NSFW

What I thought about Rock Hard
One thing I like about novellas and serials is that sometimes I just don't want to read a full length novel and these shorter stories are great for when I'm looking for a one-night-read.  I really liked how these three novellas were packaged together, telling the individual stories of the member of the band, Hank Lemon and the Law.
These three stories were just the right size for getting to know the characters enough to care, with a nice dose of heat along with it.  They aren't all sex either, which I liked -- there were three nice stories of new found and second chance love in this trilogy.
 In the first story, Rex has always lusted after their singer, Quinn, and so has Beau. In an effort to maintain the bro-code and not mess up their friendship, they've decided it's all or nothing, with things being at nothing at the start of the story. But after hearing Rex and Beau enjoying themselves another night, Quinn can't take it anymore and makes a drastic move to help reduce the considerable tension between them.
Beau gets his happy in the second story, and I think I liked this one the most  It was sweet and touching, with Beau falling hard for their new chef, Gigi.  It takes a little time for them to get on the same page, but there's a nice love story with this one.
And new band member Tai gets the third story.  His is a second chance love story, but the first time around didn't end so well and Christa may not be able to convince him to give her a second chance.
I really liked the stories and thought there was just enough of everything in each one. The format worked for me and they were perfectly sized for when you want something you can finish in a night, yet feels like a full length book.
