New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh stuns with a sizzling contemporary romance…
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 read a lot about this book and not always very nice things so I wanted to make my own opinion, and frankly I’m not disappointed to have bought it. So yes this series is different from what Nalini Singh writes usually but I liked the story, there are clichés, we aren’t too surprised but after all in romance, surprises are rare. At the moment I read a lot more English than French and sincerely that romance is really nice compared to others I’ve read where I got bored.
I love Fox, he’s kind, adorable, sexy and he always gets what he wants. He isn’t afraid of commitment, he just fears of abandonment. I love his will, he wants Molly and he will do whatever it takes for her to be with him and to protect her. I really find him very endearing and I have a soft spot for him and I am addicted to rockers.
Regarding Molly, I totally understand her need to stay in the shadows, children and college students can be very hard towards each other and frankly these are not easy times to live, especially in her condition. I’m really attached to Molly, she is sweet, tender and ultimately she drops a few barriers but she’s remaining herself.
I love Fox’s relationship with the rest of the group, they are welded and in the middle of the music I think it’s still a rare thing. The group also accepted Molly easily and they protect her. I really like this group of people; all of them are intriguing and interesting. I look forward to reading the story of David and Thea as well as on T-Rex and Charlotte, which I think, will be pretty funny.
Nalini Singh changed register and even if it does not please everyone, I am quite convinced for my part, she is riding the wave of the New Adult with ease and even if the story itself is not original, it is readable easily and with pleasure.
