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…
At A Glance
Started out bad, but it got better.
So far, everything I read from Singh has been paranormal, so I was excited to try a contemporary from her. It was interesting, that’s for sure. Rock Addiction had a very new adult feel, which I loved. The rock star aspect was the major appeal for me though. I fell in love with experiencing Fox’s world through his and Molly’s eyes. So exciting and exotic.
The contrast between Molly and Fox was fun if not a little cliché. Molly is the quiet librarian who hates the spotlight due to her past. Fox is sexy, fun, and so alpha male. They so don’t go together, but for some reason they work.
I didn’t like Fox and Molly together at first, but they grew on me. They were annoying but interesting. In the end, I kind of liked that I didn’t like them that much. It’s hard to explain, but the same cute couple after cute couple gets boing. These two weren’t boring.
The plot was good and some of the other characters caught my interest. I would try book #2 out for sure.
Oh God, the insta-love/lust. Seriously, it was bad. Fox just knew Molly was The Girl from the second he saw her across the room. Kill. Me. Now.
The first quarter of the book had this odd writing style. Like everything was fast-forward and jumbled a bit. It did get better though.
The ending, with all the fan support for a certain incident, wasn’t believable. That’s not the way the world works.
The sex! Lot’s of sex. Sex happens within the first few pages and is there right in the end as well. But Singh makes it seem normal. It didn’t feel like too much. And it was hot. The best part of the book actually.
I was disappointed because I do expect more out of Singh. But they can’t all be gems. Rock Addiction was still good, just not amazing. I am going to try book #2 and see if I want to continue the series from there. Recommended.
“That’s why I need a ride, Molly,” his lip ring brushing the shell of her ear. “I don’t know where you live.”
“This song is for my Molly, who is the best fucking thing that´s ever happened to me. Also, for those suicidal idiots sending her fan mail asking her to run away with them, I will hunt you down and rip off you nuts.”
“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?”
“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.”
