Sam reviews ‘Rock Solid (Rock Solid Construction)(Volume 1)’ by Riley Hart. Self Published on April 27th, 2015 and is 282 pages.





Trevor Dixon has made too many mistakes to count. Sober for thirteen months, he’s determined to do the right thing: rebuild his relationship with his family, and help his brother get Rock Solid Construction off the ground. Failing them again isn’t an option. Too bad the first estimate Trevor goes on alone is for an uptight doctor with a superiority complex.A hand injury took away the only important thing in Dr. Simon Malone’s life—performing heart surgery. He doesn’t do well with people and has no family, but being a damn good surgeon? He always had that. Now, he doesn’t know who he is. The last thing he wants to deal with is the young construction worker who blows his shot at remodeling Simon’s home.Trevor and Simon form an unlikely friendship. The more time they spend together, the more Trevor starts wondering if maybe Simon’s not as straight—or uptight—as he thought…and maybe Trevor’s new attraction for Simon runs both ways.There are too many reasons they shouldn’t be together: they have little in common, their age difference, Trevor needing to focus on his sobriety…yet there’s something about each other that they just can’t shake. They don’t feel so lost when they’re together. But with their footing so unsteady, forming a relationship that’s rock solid seems impossible. There’s blow after blow, and the last one just might be powerful enough to crack their foundation for good.


Trevor and Simon are both struggling in life. Trevor is a recovering addict trying to stay sober and get the business he owns with his twin brother, Blake, off the ground. Simon is a successful heart surgeon but his hand was injured and he is no longer able to perform surgeries. Both men are now trying to put the pieces of their lives back together.

Trevor feels guilty for everything he has put his mother and brother through for so many years. He is trying hard to be a better man. Wanting to prove to everyone that he has changed and they can depend on him, Trevor goes off to bid his first job for his construction company, Rock Solid. Unfortunately the meeting turns into a disaster. The owner of the job is a goody two shoe doctor and has no interest in giving the job to a tattooed recovering addict. But Trevor won’t accept failure, too many people are depending on him and he is determined to land this job. He shows up at Simon’s house unexpectantly to let him know all the reasons he should reconsider his decision. After taking some time to talk with Trevor, Simon changes his mind and goes with his gut feeling. He will let Rock Solid have the job under certain conditions.

Trevor and Simon end up forming a friendship neither one expected. As time goes on they grow closer and Trevor still continues to fight his growing attraction to Simon knowing that Simon is straight and nothing good could come of it. But one night something happens that has Trevor questioning how straight Simon truly is?

I have loved all of Riley Harts  previous books and Rock Solid is no different. The journey that Trevor and Simon go on to find themselves and each other was beautiful. The writing flowed really well.  The emotional connection I felt to characters while reading had my heart breaking at times. The plot was strong with twists and turns that keeps you hooked from beginning to end.  I am looking forward to what the author creates next.

I highly recommend reading Rock Solid by Riley Hart you won’t be disappointed.
