ARC Book review: Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss #1) by Nalini Singh
ebook ARC provided by Netgalley
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 have not read a rock star book in a while so when i saw Nalini Singh had written one i knew i had to see what it was all about. This book starts out in Australia which i thought was interesting and then later heads to the States and California. Fox is the lead singer in a band and they are in Australia for a month to relax before going back to the US and touring again. Fox sees her across the room at a party and immediately is attracted to her. Approaching her, Molly, who never lets anything to exciting into her life, decides to have a one night stand with him. She's really attracted to him too but a terrible past experience in the media has turned her off any chance of that life again. The book moves along swiftly. Fox knows from the beginning he wants more from Molly than one night. He has to convince her of that now. First he talks her into the month they are in Australia in the hopes he can convince her they are worth a shot. Both have issues in their pasts to deal with along with the whole Fox being famous. There are a lot of stops and starts between the two on the path of Fox's goal of permanence between the two. Sometimes Fox runs hot and cold but i think that was from a mixture of his past and him wanting to take things slow with Molly and then misunderstandings. He's really quite sweet with her.The secondary character's were really interesting and hopefully they will get some front and center time in books to come in this series. All around though this book reads fast, the character's are enjoyable on the whole and who doesn't like a rock and roll romance! Nalini Singh kicks off the start of this new series with a kick!
