I gotta say it: I think Lauren Dane is a closet Rock Fiction fan. I mean, this is the fourth book to show up on our master list of Rock Fiction. And this series, The Hurley Boys, is all about rockers.

Check out what this one’s about:

Beyond passion. And beyond their control…

Five years ago, Tuesday Eastwood’s life collapsed and left her devastated. After an empty, nomadic existence, she’s finally pieced her life back together in the small Oregon town of Hood River. Now Tuesday has everything sorted out. Just so long as men are kept for sex, and only sex…

Then she met him.

Musician and rancher Ezra Hurley isn’t the man of Tuesday’s dreams. He’s a verboten fantasy—a man tortured by past addictions, whose dark charisma and long, lean body promise delicious carnality. But this craving goes far beyond chemistry. It’s primal. It’s insatiable. And it won’t be satisfied until they’re both consumed, body and soul…

So if I didn’t know this series is about a band, the “musician and rancher” aspect would have me wondering if this is, indeed, Rock Fiction. From the description, I’ll have to read to see just how much Rock Fiction there is.

But yeah, I’d be more than glad to read this one. Bring it on!

Lauren Dane has been a favorite of Susan’s for a long time now. Part of that is because Susan’s known Lauren online for a long time now. And part is because Lauren writes some really smoking hot stuff — or so she says. I haven’t had time until now to check it out. And I want to make time for this one!

Unexpected Desire…

It’s been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn’t in the cards just yet…

Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin’s past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd’s best friend, Ben, ends up in their bed–and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name. As the passion they share transforms Erin, will it be enough to help her face the evil she thought she had left behind?

So it starts off pretty typical: the guy can’t forget the rocker chick he had a fling with.

Wait.

What?

The guy can’t forget the girl. That’s normal. We’ve seen a lot of that.

But the guy’s not the rocker. The GIRL is.

I like Lauren Dane already.

And then she goes and adds a threesome to the mix… what girl doesn’t want to have two men in her bed, answering her beck and call? (Okay, that’s rhetorical, so don’t flood Susan’s inbox with answers.)

This sounds like it’s more erotic romance than Rock Fiction, but there’s only one way to find out. Bring it. Fast, soon, and maybe even a little bit hot.

As I’m doing extra posting this month and finally starting to catch up on all the links Susan and I have been swapping, I’m really seeing trends in Rock Fiction plotting. And here’s one in Lauren Dane’s The Best Kind of Trouble: the rock star who can’t get the more restrained/conservative/chaste girl off his mind. Here. Take a look:

She has complete control… and he’s determined to take it away

A librarian in the small town of Hood River, Natalie Clayton’s world is very nearly perfect. After a turbulent childhood and her once-wild ways, life is now under control. But trouble has a way of turning up unexpectedly—especially in the tall, charismatically sexy form of Paddy Hurley….

And Paddy is the kind of trouble that Natalie has a taste for.

Even after years of the rock and roll lifestyle, Paddy never forgot the two wickedly hot weeks he once shared with Natalie. Now he wants more… even if it means tempting Natalie and her iron-grip control. But there’s a fine line between well-behaved and misbehaved—and the only compromise is between the sheets!

It’s a natural fantasy for anyone who feels chemistry with someone who meets a jillion people every day. Notice me! Look at me! Remember me! We all want to stand out. So I guess it’s a natural plot line.

Besides, as Susan points out, this is Lauren Dane. Her books are always good. And if this has some of those classic Dane sex scenes? Get the smelling salts ready!
