Molly Webster has no inclination to involve herself with Zachary Fox. Her childhood was ripped in shreds with her father's scandal, and she knows what the media can do do a person. She has taken years to recover from it. Molly's sister manages the band that Fox is a part of. And when she runs into him, they have a passionate and sizzling one night stand and she never expected Zachary to extend that one night stand to a full month. They propose a plan for her to disguise herself, that won't draw attention, but Zachary starts to show her desire and all she expects is a sensual month of pleasure, but with a expiration date, never knowing of Zachary's true intentions. Zachary, has always wanted Molly, and when he sees her again, he means to show her what he can give her, and when things begin to get complicated, he will need to convince Molly of his true devotion and hope he can win her love and her heart...

For years I have come to admire Nalini Singh with her paranormal shifter series, and when I heard she had a new contemporary series coming out, I was unsure what it would be like. Since this story is so different from anything else she has produce. However, lately I have fallen in love with rock band romances, and when I was given the opportunity to read this and review it via netgalley and Nalini Singh, I just jumped at the chance. I probably would read anything that this author would write. Rock Addiction, is way more steamy than I expected, so I would say it leans toward erotica in some elements, but with Singh at the helm, you will have a solid plot to deal with as well. In the beginning of the story its pretty much steamy and HOT sex that will blow your mind and definitely enough heat to fog up all the windows. But from the beginning we see the hero, wanting more. The moment he sees Molly he goes after her and isn't afraid to chase after what he wants and desires. Molly is afraid to have anything with Fox, but she starts to slowly give in and I loved the way these two came together.

The characters in the story were charming and I adored all of them. From the main characters, to the fellow band members, and Molly's sister. They all had fun roles and their interaction in the story made the story endearing with each chapter. Zachary, was one hot rock star, he is the lead singer, and has a passion for music and women, but his devotion to Molly was so sweet sometimes. There are many times that he just sizzles with sensuality, but you start to delve deeper into his personality, and he is dedicated and passionate with every aspect in his life and holds nothing back!! Molly, well I loved her from the beginning, there was just something about her character that was like able and I had no issues with. She is the type of heroine you can easily relate with and she has such strength, willing to face public scorn again, and risk getting hurt again so that she can have a chance with Zachary. It was very interesting seeing these two hook up and try to make a relationship work. They come across a few roadblocks, and their connection to each other was intense. This story is guaranteed to leave you breathless and aching for more. BLAZING FROM BEGINNING TO END! ( )

Rock Addiction
4 Stars

Ever since a scandal destroyed her childhood, Molly Webster has avoided the limelight. But when she meets Zachary Fox, lead singer of the hottest rock band on the planet, she cannot deny the intensity of their attraction and agrees to a one night stand. Fox, however, refuses to give up on the sweet, sexy and seductive librarian, and insists on prolonging their relationship indefinitely …

A note on genre: This book seems to have been classified as New Adult. From my understanding, New Adult refers to stories that involve YA themes, such as discovering identity, developing sexuality, family struggles, issues with addiction, etc., with the added inclusion of explicit sex scenes and characters between the ages of 18-25. Rock Addiction simply does not fit these criteria and readers looking for a New Adult book with the abovementioned themes are bound to be disappointed. The book is more in line with adult contemporary romance as the hero and heroine deal with their different romantic expectations and desires.

Now on to the review …

After reading a number of lukewarm reviews, my expectations going in were rather low. Yet, despite some minor issues, the story was actually pleasantly surprising.

Yes, Molly is naïve and easily seduced into making numerous concessions for the sake of her relationship with Fox. Nevertheless, it is obvious that Fox does not take her for granted and is willing to take the necessary steps to ensure that she is comfortable and happy with his rock star lifestyle.

Yes, there is a great deal of sex in this book. But, it is a rock star romance after all, and the scenes are well-written with emphasis placed both on the physical and emotional intimacy between the characters.

Yes, there is nothing very original about the plot or the romance. That said, it is a sweet and heartwarming story with relatively little irritating angst and no annoying misunderstandings.

All in all, the book is well-written (as is to be expected of Nalini Singh); the hero and heroine are likable, and the secondary characters are very appealing. The hints at stories to come are intriguing, especially between Molly's best friend and her enigmatic boss. As office romances are a favorite trope of mine, I am eager to read the next book. ( )

This book was not nearly as interesting as I though it would be. The plot never felt like it ramped up, it just kept a slow and steady level all throughout. So yeah, it got boring about midway through and was a bit of a chore to finish.

Wasn't crazy about either lead. Fox was just an ass, and Molly took it on the chin. He decides something? Guess Molly doesn't have a choice! Yeah, that got old too.

Overall just disappointing, but never so bad that I DNF'd it. I would say that I want to read the side story (the friend and her boss... Forgot their names) but after this level of blah, I wouldn't trust it to not be just as boring. ( )
