REVIEW: Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh

RELEASE
DATE: September 9th, 2014
Blurb
A
bad boy wrapped in a sexy, muscled, grown-up package might be worth a
little risk…
Molly
Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore
apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh
spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No
impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy
rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could
become an addiction.
A
one-night stand with the hottest rock star on the planet, that’s
all it was meant to be…
Fox
promises scorching heat and dangerous pleasure, coaxing Molly to
extend their one-night stand into a one-month fling. After that,
he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her
own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date.
No ties, no regrets. Too late, Molly realizes it isn’t only her
body that’s become addicted to Fox, but her heart…

 

Excerpt
from ROCK ADDICTION
by
Nalini Singh
Fox
hadn’t become the lead

singer of one of the best-selling rock bands in history by
 being a
shrinking violet. No, he went after what he wanted, no holds barred.
And the raw 
promise he could feel between him and Molly? He had to
know where it would lead, the
 need so strong he hadn’t felt
anything like it since the day he’d figured out that music was
 his
escape, the air in his lungs.
Which
was why he was leaning against the wall beside Molly’s apartment at
five that 
afternoon, a guitar by his side.
The
elevator doors opened at a quarter after the hour, Molly going
motionless two steps
 outside of it, the doors closing silently at her
back. Yeah, she hadn’t expected him, but
 Fox was ready to work with
that. Waiting patiently as she took a deep breath and
 completed the
trek down the corridor, he drew in the scent of her, his gaze
lingering on 
the fluttering pulse in her neck.

How did you get
past security?”
Fox
smiled slowly at the blurted-out question, wondering if Molly knew
how bad she was
 at hiding her emotions. He liked it, liked that he
saw the real Molly, not an illusion she’d
 created to tempt him—not
that she had to do anything but smile to tempt him. “I told you
 the
security sucks.”
Unable
to resist, he reached out to run his finger down one creamy cheek
flushed with a
 mix of surprise, passion, and, he was certain, sweet,
hot feminine anger. His guess was
 borne out when Molly unlocked her
door with jittery hands and put down her handbag on
 one corner of the
bench, her fingers trembling before she curled them into her palms.
 “You’re breaking the rules.”
What
rules?” Closing the door, he leaned back on it and willed her to
face him. Much as
 he loved the shape of her from the back, he liked
watching those expressive eyes whisper
 her mood to him.
Shoulders
tight, she turned. “This was supposed to be a one-night stand.”
Ah.”
Folding his arms over the plain black of his T-shirt, he said, “How
about a
one-month stand instead?” He knew he had to play this
exactly right. Molly was wary of 
him, and yeah, he could understand
why. To have her in his life beyond a fleeting instant,
 he’d have
to win her trust.
She
jerked up her head. “What?”
Why
not? I like you. You like me.” He smiled—because the reason Molly
had needed to
 jerk up her head was that she’d been staring at his
chest. “Admit it.”
Sitting
down on the bench, she began to unzip her boots, very obviously
not
looking
at 
him. “You’re okay for a rock star.”
He
wanted to bite her, then pet her until she was limp and languid in
his arms. “We burn
 up together.” Deliberately modulating his
voice—his instrument—for maximum effect,
 low and bedroom rough,
he saw her fingers stutter on the zipper. “I’m here for a month.
 It’s an easy equation.”
When
the words “Let me think about it” fell from her mouth, he thought
she might’ve
 been as startled as he was, her lips parting on a
slight gasp—as if to call back the 
declaration.

Erin’s Review

This book is everything a rocker romance should be. Hot, steamy, with a touch of drama, this book is the perfect mix.
First we meet Molly, the quiet librarian. I seriously love this girl. She’s nervous, cautious, and has a streak of sassy that you can’t help but like. She’s as real as real can get. You can honestly relate to this chic on just about every level. 
Then there’s Fox. He’s not your typical rock God. Oh, he has had plenty of women, but he isn’t a jerk. He’s sweet, sexy and wants his sexy librarian 8 ways from Sunday. 
These two have so much in common. Both come from troubled pasts and have worked hard at overcoming them. They aren’t damaged, per say, but they take a more cautious approach to life and especially to love. 
Molly and Fox’s story is one of learning to trust. It’s also about letting go of the past and learning to live. Sometimes we have to break the restrictions we set for ourselves to truly experience all life has to offer.  I love this book and it’s message.
Now, I’m off to write a memo to my husband before he gets home-Read the book, you’ll understand.
