In New York Times Bestselling author Nalini Singh’s newest contemporary romance, passion ignites between a gorgeous, sinfully sexy man who built himself up from nothing and a shy woman who has a terrible secret in her past…
Wealthy businessman Gabriel Bishop rules the boardroom with the same determination and ruthlessness that made him a rock star on the rugby field. He knows what he wants, and he’ll go after it no-holds-barred.
And what he wants is Charlotte Baird.
Charlotte knows she’s a mouse. Emotionally scarred and painfully shy, she just wants to do her job and remain as invisible as possible. But the new CEO—a brilliant, broad-shouldered T-Rex of a man who growls and storms through the office, leaving carnage in his wake—clearly has other plans. Plans that may be equal parts business and bedroom.
If Charlotte intends to survive this battle of wits and hearts, the mouse will have to learn to wrangle the T-Rex. Game on.

Rock Hard by Nalini Singh is one of my favorite books so far this year. Not only is the writing outstanding, but she brings a special quality to each and every character. I loved how she wrote Gabriel. He has his moments when he can be the Alpha, but yet he can tone it down which I found very refreshing.
I loved Charlotte from the first book where she was introduced as Molly’s best friend even though you can tell she has been hurt and she is trying to move past that. Gabriel is the new boss driving her crazy. When they first meet let’s just say a stapler ends up in midair. From that moment alone Gabriel becomes more interested in her even if he does see her as a “mouse”. Charlotte is attracted to him even though she is fighting it. T- Rex decides he will go slow with her and take it slow because he knows someone has hurt her.
I loved the relationship wasn’t rushed. The build up and the tension moved along in a pace that was expectable and believable. Slowly you get to see that Gabriel has some issues as well even if he tries not to show them which is important in this story. When they both start to open up more you can see the sparks start to burn brighter.
Not only is this book a must read, but I love this series. I really can’t wait until the next books comes out. The characters are well written, the plots are fantastic and the romance is dynamite. Every women will be out searching for their own T- Rex after this fantastic read!
