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, blubbery mess of a fan for Nalini Singh. Her paranormal romances are to die for (especially the Psy-Changeling series), and when I heard she was going to write a contemporary book, a ROCK STAR book no less, I absolutely had to read it. Cue me jumping for joy when I got Rock Addiction in my hands. I should mention though, for fans of Nalini’s PNR or Urban Fantasy books, Rock Addiction has a completely different feel – of course, it’s contemporary, so it should feel different! But just because Rock Addiction was different doesn’t mean I loved it less. I thoroughly enjoyed it – Nalini’s venture into the rock star world was engaging, hot, addicting, and overall a fun read!

Molly Webster is a good girl – she’s a librarian and a virgin. She wants nothing to do with drama for the rest of her life, because incidents in the past involving her parents have left her hurt and scarred on the inside. Unfortunately, the moment she meets Zachary Fox, her life isn’t so simple anymore. When Fox and Molly see each other, there’s insta-lust, but when it’s done well, I have no problem with it. And the instant attraction between Fox and Molly worked for the story and for me. And there’s the whole ‘opposites attract’ thing as well – Molly is a quiet, shy type of girl, while Fox is the lead singer of a world-renowned band.

He didn’t believe in fantasy shit like destiny or fate or the biggest con of all–love–but he knew himself. And he knew what he wanted; to tug her to him with his hand fisted in her hair, brand her with his mouth, warn every other male in the room that she was off-limits. But the instant he did that, he’d make her front-page news when he wanted her all to himself.
Private.
Alone.
No cameras.
No lights.
No fucking interruptions.

I usually wouldn’t like heroines like Molly, but somehow, Nalini Singh was able to make me care for this girl. I didn’t completely love her, but she felt real to me. Like her thoughts and actions and reactions were understandable, even if I didn’t like them sometimes. Fox brought a lot more feelings out of me than Molly – I was just shy of loving him completely. He’s the perfect rock star – he’s sexy, charismatic, an alpha-male, knows what he wants. And what he wants is Molly. He’s never felt an attraction toward anyone like he has for her, and he wants to see where it could lead.

“You know when you get the whisper of a melody in your head, or the murmur of a song? And you have the gut feeling that if you could just hear the rest of it, just capture the music”–the need an ache as frustrating as it was piercing–”you’d have something fucking amazing?”
Noah nodded.
“Yeah well, that’s what it feels like with Molly.” The most compelling whisper of his life. “I’m not about to walk away from that.”

Fox is refreshing in the way that he’s the one who wants more. Molly is resistant to forming any sort of relationship past their one-night-stand (which definitely heated up the pages), but Fox is compelling and irresistible. We see from his thoughts that he falls fast and hard for Molly, and I loved that Fox is the one who has to convince Molly that the two of them work. Theirs is a romance that is slow, sexy, warm, heartwarming, and real. Despite the whole rock star thing, these two characters felt very real to me, which made it so easy to be swept away by their story.

Fox’s eyes held her own, a passionate possessive fire in their depths. “No half measures, no regrets.”
“No half measures,” she vowed, her pulse a staccato beat and her heart on her sleeve. “No regrets.”
Fox’s kiss branded her, his body imprinting on her cells.

What I loved best about Rock Addiction was the fact that the drama wasn’t the over-the-top kind of drama. As problems rise for Molly and Fox, none of the it felt like too much – it wasn’t drama for drama’s sake. Each problem for this couple felt integral for the story, and was necessary for them to overcome so they could reach a happily ever after. Fox and Molly openly communicated (another refreshing thing) and I was able to connect with them easily.

Within Molly and Fox’s romance, there’s humor as well as the bromances between Fox and the other members of Schoolboy Choir. I loved that everything went well together, that nothing felt out of place with this book. I just really enjoyed Rock Addiction – I’m glad to have read it. And I’m incredibly excited to read the other books in the series!

excerpt

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.
