Rabid Readers Book Blog - "And boy was this book hot! I had to reread a few lines. I had a blast getting lost in this story."
Twenty-two year old Riley Sears promises herself never to fall in love unless it is with a guy who is long-term boyfriend material. She is not crazy, her psychologist reassures her of that, but when faced with situations she cannot control… Well. Her anxiety skyrockets.
Enter Dominic Mondez, the hottest creature ever to grace pecs and abs. The notorious playboy propositions Riley with the best sex of her life—his words. However, after learning he never sleeps with the same woman twice, Riley’s decision becomes remarkably simple.
No. Way. In. Hell.
Sadly, traversing the murky waters of friends without benefits is far from simple, especially since Dominic is the lead guitarist of local rock band, Mondez. He is also tempestuous, a womanizer, and—even worse—inexplicably jealous. Dominic is bad for Riley in every possible way. Bad, bad, bad.
If only her body would listen.
WOW!! What a sensational story!! I have to say my emotions have been through the wringer but man, it sure had my full attention. Rock My Body is the second installment of the Mondez series but can be read as a standalone.
Riley Sears is waiting for Mr. Right. You know, the long term, forever kind of guy. After being raised by a mother that despises her and a father that is always away on business she needs someone who is grounded. Instead she meets Dominic.
Dominic Mondez has been through hell and back and because of that he has commitment issues. He’s a player and admits it. He never sleeps with the same woman more than once and the second he sees Riley he’s determined to make her another notch in his belt.
Riley can’t ignore the fact that her and Dominic have an instant connection but deep down she knows better than getting involved sexually with Dominic. He intends to break down her walls and willpower but will his persistent presence wear Riley down or make her run?
This story is told by both Riley and Dominic which in my eyes was amazing. I loved reading what Dominic was thinking and feeling which really made my emotions have one hell of a rollercoaster ride. I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did and I can’t wait for what Piper has in store for us next.
I tried so hard to focus on what Sebastian was saying. Thankfully, he held up his end of the conversation despite my unexpected inability to formulate any words. We’d been sitting together for a while without a single awkward pause so I nodded, smiled, and even laughed when required. To be fair, it was a pretty decent pick-up attempt. Well, until he showed up. Blue eyes burned my skin. You don’t own me, you don’t own me, you don’t— I swallowed, steeled myself and then glanced across at him. Own me. Dominic was leaning against the wall, his black, button-down shirt almost bursting at the seams. I blamed those insanely strong pecs and biceps. Honestly, they were huge. And the way his dark blue jeans hung enticingly low off narrow hips… Well. It should be illegal. He was going to give someone—AKA me—a cardiac arrest if he wasn’t careful. I shook my head. With a bottle of beer in one hand and a buxom blonde in the other— this one looked nastier than most—the guy was the physical embodiment of everything I despised. Truly. If only my body would listen. Raising the drink to full, kissable lips, he tipped his head back, piercing gaze still locked on me. He then wiped his mouth with the back of his hand, a flicker of emotions I couldn’t identify crossing his face when he noticed my breath catch. The girl must have registered his distraction too because she started rubbing herself up against him like an overly aroused limpet. Gross. He broke contact with me and looked down at her, a dark smile tugging his lips. After murmuring something in her ear and slapping her on the behind, she giggled. I looked away, that familiar painful knot forming in my stomach once more. Damn you, Dominic Mondez. Damn you to hell.
