New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh's new contemporary romance novella is pure hard rock and scorching heat...

What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?

A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band's publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.

Only problem is, Thea doesn't date clients--or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she's not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.

What she doesn't know is that David is a one-woman man...and he's madly in love with her. David's determined to prove he's worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea's about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.

Elizabeth's Thoughts
I started reading the first book in the series but I ended up DNFing (did not finish) it so I was skeptical about trying another book in the series. When I read the synopsis of ROCK COURTSHIP, I really wanted to read the novella. I was curious about this rock star being a one woman man and his obsession with the band’s publicist so I tabled my preconceived notions and took a chance…and I’m glad I did.

David is truly a dream come true. He was raised in a family with love and respect and although he was a scrapper in his younger days—often losing many of his battles—he persevered and it shows in the strength of his character. I loved his outlook on a strong woman and how much he admired Thea and loved her unconditionally. I also loved how David courted and romanticized Thea through written word. *dreamy sigh*

Thea is battle worn and completely against loving again. Her ex-fiancé broke her heart and humiliated her and she doesn’t want to go through that again. David is adamant in pursuing his feelings for Thea but she keeps her guard up, despite thoughts of the sexy drummer constantly running through her mind.

David finally wears her down and the two embark on a highly passionate love affair. Soon reality hits and there is some drama that threatens to destroy the fragile trust David has earned from Thea. You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens but I can tell you that I was happy with the outcome!

I really enjoyed David and Thea’s story. I also loved how their families were included in the courtship. We also get a few more tidbits from the boys in the band and find out that one of them is battling some serious demons. I’ve already said too much! Read the book, you’ll be glad you did.

I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
