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…
I am a HUGE Nalini Singh fan. I have devoured her Psy-changeling and Guild Hunter series and loved every bit of it. So when I found out that she had written a contemporary rock star romance I was jumping with joy. The happy dance continued when I got to read an Advanced Readers Copy through Netgalley. It is no surprise that I thoroughly enjoyed Rock Addiction.
Molly Webster is a librarian. After a horrific scandal in her childhood she has always followed the rules and tried to be good in every way. I really liked Molly. She was a sweet and simple girl but she couldn't deny the primal attraction between Fox and her. I also liked that Molly had her insecurities and didn't always believe how she could keep the rock star's attention all to herself.
Then we have Fox. He is the lead singer in a band called as Schoolboy Choir. Fox was an alpha male to the core. Once he set his eyes on Molly he didn't turn back. He used every trick in the book to pursue her and make her his. Fox also had a temper and I thought that his impatience where some things were concerned just added to the rock star image.
Fox and Molly have a hell lot of chemistry from the first page itself. Things move very quickly and what was supposed to be a one night stand soon turns into so much more. I liked how Molly and Fox were quick in their physical relationship but slowly built their trust emotionally. They both tried to help each other with their issues and stood by each other. There was also some angst in this book which usually is very much toned down in Nalini's books. But in this case it made Fox and Molly's relationship more passionate.
I also loved all the members of the band. I hope David, Noah and Abe all gets books as each one of them has a strong personality. The cast of supporting characters was amazing and we can already see some relationships brewing. I'm overall super happy with this book and though I can't say it compares to her phenomenal paranormal books it was still a very good read.
