I’ve coveted Roni Loren’s books before. Haven’t gotten my paws on any (although Susan says some are in her library, so maybe I can get them, too?). And now here’s a third!
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Loving on the Edge series and Off the Clock, a story of sex, love, rock & roll, and a reporter who’s about to learn a new meaning for staying on top of her assignment…
Restaurant critic Aubrey Bordelon is never at a loss for words to describe her meals in the fancy restaurants of New Orleans. But after her magazine’s high-profile music reporter falls ill, she finds herself out of her element and in a sea of screaming fans awaiting Wanderlust’s lead singer, Lex Logan. The sound of his voice gives her goosebumps, and the stage presence of the hard-bodied rock star takes her breath away. So when he pulls her onstage for a sexy stunt, she knows she’s in real trouble.
Lex doesn’t want to pretend that the sparks on stage between him and Aubrey never happened, but it certainly makes the fact that she’s writing a story on his band all the more dangerous. The last thing he needs is some nosy reporter revealing their problems to the world. But the sexy Southern belle doesn’t give up easily, and soon he’s wondering if the best way to chase her off the story is to coax her into his bed…
I like how this turns tropes on their head. Well, the works for the band trope, anyway. Because Aubrey is here to fill in… sorta like how 50 Shades got started, right? At least the movie version did. I didn’t read the book, but the movie? What’s her name fills in for her friend. Or roommate. Or whoever that was. So Aubrey’s out of her element, and that’s always a fun thing, too: to see rock and roll through the eyes of an outsider.
And note that he’s not a male slut, he’s not into groupies, he’s not drugged out or over the partying lifestyle. Nope. He’s just a singer.
This book description might be the best ever. Or not, depending on what’s between the covers.
