**Book THREE in the Black Falcon series. Can also be read as a stand-alone novel**

Review by Janeane ARC received for honest review

Though this is book 3 in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.
The boys of Black Falcon are back!  I have loved these guys from the beginning and was really looking forward to getting into Trip's mind.
While Black Falcon are taking a break while Noel and Zach "Riff" spend time with their wives and babies, the other band members Trip and Tyke are at a bit of a loose end.

Trip is forward thinking, looking at business ventures for when the touring days are over.  Which brings him to Arizona and a failing motocross track.

Holly has just had her heartbroken by her douchenozzle of a boyfriend Jackson.  Now she has sworn off men, especially those of the tattooed, motocross variety.  She is now working with her father to help get the track back in the black.

After a drunken run in - a sexy, drunken run in - with a sexy stranger, she can't get him out of her head, but knows she won't see him again.  Or will she.

Trip and Holly's world's collide when he turns up at her dad's business, and sparks fly.  How can she work with him when she wants him with every fibre of her being? And really who could blame her?  I mean, look at him

I loved the sparring between Holly and Trip.  The sexual tension between them so thick, but neither of them wants to make the move to something more.

But can they keep resisting the only thing that has ever made them feel complete?

Holly's best friend Max is just the perfect friend.  Loyal to a fault, tells her what he thinks but is her fiercest defender.

We do not get much of the rest of the band in this book, though they do all show up at the end of the book for a whistlestop visit.

And we learn a bit more of what is going on with Tyke.  And I really look forward to Tyke's story.

Michelle Valentine has sucked me right into the world of Black Falcon, and I can't get enough.  Now, get writing cos I want more!
