I’ve just spent the last 20 minutes scrolling through Rock Addiction quotes with a goofy smile on my face — despite the fact that I just read the book, literally 28 hours ago. What this book does to me :)
A little back story… Fox is the lead singer of Schoolboy Choir, a quartet of very talented musicians (the four that the series follows). When at a stuffy social gathering, he catches sight of the single most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, and knows that she’s going to be in his bed that night–and maybe for several after that. He’s immediately attracted to the sincerity on her face as she laughs with her sister–a look of kindness that has no ulterior motive whatsoever, something that he’s become unaccustomed to from women in the industry.
Meanwhile, Molly has been watching Fox for sometime…overtaken by the attractive, masculine roughness of his features, but knowing she has no chance. What would a *HAWT* rock star like himself want with a librarian?
Oh yeah, ladies. She’s a virgin librarian :) Cute, right??
Rock Addiction is just such a fun, laidback, sweet romance that managed to be unbelievably sweet and toe-curlingly naughty at the same time.
Fox says the most maddeningly, lovely, over-the-top HOT things …
And “Miss Molly” is just so sweet and cute, yet undeniably, snarkily female. She’s not afraid to shove back and deal with a sulking, brooding rock star when he shuts her out or becomes downright chauvinistic. The relationship the two of them had was absolutely adorable, and I enjoyed every minute of their tumultuous courtship!!
Nalini Singh is one of my all-time favorite writers of all time with a phenomenal Psy-Changeling series that I can’t stay away from. But this Rock Kiss series proves that Singh is not only a master of the fantastical…she clearly has contemporary romance as the ace up her sleeve she has only now revealed. BOY does she know how to write a romance!! She has THE MOST sought after skill in the writers world, of being able to completely commit to her characters. All of her characters are so different… librarians, rock stars, CEO’s, arch-angels, victims, wolves, hunters, human robots, addicts, leopards and actors … yet they are all so distinctively THEM. There is no question of who you’re reading when you’re reading a Singh book, because when she creates a character, it’s as if she spoofed them to existence and stole their diary.
Every time I read a Singh book, I’m in complete awe of her skill. Seriously, skillful.
Every thing I said in this review more than pertains to her Rock Addiction. But if you ask me, Rock Hard is Singh’s best book, and one of my favorite contemporary romances to boot! If you liked Rock Addiction, I guarantee you’ll LOVE Rock Hard.
