Series Review // Body Rock by Nora Flite

April 15, 2024

I missed releasing this post last week so here it is. I'm back with a series of books that I read a long time ago, but I remember enjoying them. What can I say? I go through a rockstar romance phase every once in a while. Have you read this series before? Have you tried this author? Hopefully my reviews inspire someone to give Nora Flite books a chance.

Hard Body Rock

She thought she was stepping into fame.

Meeting Drezden Halifax should have been a dream. But dreams are supposed to be sweet, fragile things that whisk you away. Not monsters crafted from hard fingers, gritty vocal cords and a voice so powerful it could tear my guts right out.

Maybe my heart, too.

Becoming the guitarist for Four and a Half Headstones was everything I needed.
Too bad the band's lead singer is doing his best to ruin everything I am.

He thought she would solve his troubles.

Lola Cooper, god damn Lola Cooper. She was the perfect guitarist, fingers that could summon a sweet song or punch a chord. She's supposed to save my band, make us come out of this tour in one piece...

But I just want to tear HER to pieces.

No one should make me feel this way. One look at her, one smell, and I knew I'd have to have her. She does things to me that scare the shit out of me. Make me want to slam her on a wall and listen to her cries: eager or fearful, it doesn't matter.

I'm a monster...
And I don't even care.

I'm new to this author and found her writing edgy, funky and unique. I can't recall reading anything else like it. That being said, I kind of got lost in translation. I felt like the book was too descriptive that I kept getting confused about what was really going on. Where Drezden's POV was pretty clear and direct, I found Lola's was convoluted. It was all over the place, especially the scene in the bathroom. Wth was that?! A bunch of useless words to say that you fell in the bathtub and felt his hard-on. I hope the next book is clearer because I feel like I just walked out of a fog!

Slow Body Rock

He knew he was addicted.

I thought it'd be smoking that killed me. Lola is more addictive than tobacco could hope to be.
After feeling her warm body, touching her skin... even if it was an accident, I've given up.

The monster inside of me is going to consume her.

I'm too tired to fight it.

And I honestly don't want to.

She knew it was risking everything.

Why is he trying to mess up my ONE opportunity at success?
My very god damn existence?
I can't handle this pull between us... a gravity that wants to knot our bodies together and leave me merged.


I thought Drezden cared about his band, that he wouldn't dare do anything that might break them-- and me-- apart.

When did I become the one thing worth losing it all over?

Once again the author has wowed me with her words... gritty and raw. The way she weaves the music, the talent, the performance into what is happening in reality makes for an intense read. I'm starting to get a better picture of what makes Drezden and Lola tick. They both seem really broken and I can now understand the draw, the fascination they have with one another. Now that they've taken a risk, I wonder how it will play out.

Flawed Body Rock

She wanted to be a rockstar:

I finally have everything.
Fame, presence, the world knows who I am.

Now my life is even harder.

What do you do when every eye watching you is full of jealous hate?
I'm strong enough to not let strangers hurt me...
But when it's my own brother, the stakes change entirely.

He just wanted her to himself:

My claws are in her, but I'm trapped, too.
Waking up, my first thoughts used to be about music.
Lola's changed all of that.

She consumes my dreams; my existence.

My band... the girl I'm obsessed with...
Is there room in this world for both of them?
If not, which do I choose?

With patience comes great reward. That is definitely proven when reading this series. Through this book I feel like I finally have a clear picture of both Drezden and Lola. What she went through (and what it seems he went through) was terribly unfair. I really like how this author writes. I was completely absorbed right until the cutoff. I like how the music is such an integral part of each piece of the story. I feel like there is so much more story to read. Hopefully I'm left satisfied with the next and last book.

True Body Rock

He never wanted to look back.

I've always run from my past. It's what keeps me sane; whole.
But what if not facing it means losing the girl I love?

Telling her the truth must sound so simple.

It's a request that could leave me more broken--more hollow and wrecked--than ever before.

She never saw it coming.


Answers answers god damn answers.

How far do I have to go to find out what I need? To get to the bottom of the filth and finally find the real person waiting? The man behind those delicious green eyes and intoxicating lips?

If Drezden won't talk to me...
I'll find someone who will.

But why does it feel like they're the one who's been waiting for me?

While this conclusion embodied what I've come to know as Nora Flite's raw and gritty talent, the only complaint I had was that I wanted more!! Her theme of honesty ran through this series from beginning to end and I love how it tied in to Drezden and Lola's HFN. And how great was it for her brother Sean to come full circle with the Four and a Half Headstones??? Awesome!


  1. Looks like you ended up enjoying this series. I haven't heard of this author before and was intrigued by your description of their writing. Well, until you said lost in translation and the thing about it being overly descriptive. I can't handle overly descriptive. It kills books for me. I appreciate these reviews!

    1. LOL yeah, usually overly descriptive would kill it for me too. I think it worked well because of the way the author wrote this story. I was really into it. And thanks! xo

  2. Sorry to hear it wasn't to your liking.

  3. Some series really have to build before it gets really good. I am glad that it delivered in the end for you though! I can see how the overly descriptions could be a negative though, not many authors do that aspect well.

    1. Very true. And yes, this series was worth while because it got better as it went along.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment because I absolutely love getting and giving them!
