Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh Free!
Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh

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…

7 hours in — What . . . just, what?
Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh

Heroine: I don't want to be like my mother! Pathetic and unable to be a person separate from my father. I don't want to be like my mother!
Hero: If you're going to be with me you need to give up everything to come with me.
Heroine: Okay!
Me: *deep eye roll* Idiot.

 

They've been together all of two and a half weeks and haven't done anything but fuck constantly. Nothing to indicate that they have the sort of long-lasting relationship that makes sense for her to give up her entire life and move halfway around the world. Not even the unbelievable I love yous.

 

Not to mention his "you are mine, I'll do what I want" and physically restraining her when she's mad borderline if not actually abusive bullshit. And they have one fight and she's throwing stuff in a suitcase, what even?

 

This book is freaking stupid.

 

And somehow there are four hours left.

More than sex?
Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh
Hope Ignites - Jaci Burton

'. . . They had a special connection, this was more than just sex.'

 

'They had something more than just sex.'

 

'They recognized this was something special. It wasn't just sex.'

 

Methinks the authors doth protest too much. First of all, saying something like that in the middle of sex kind of renders it meaningless.

 

Second, when everything comes back to your genitals . . . come on now.

 

Third, when the characters have not spent any time together that hasn't started or ended with sex, it's just not true.

 

The most conversation we get out of these couples is about their pasts and where their "relationship" is going. Nothing else. Nothing to indicate they're compatible in any way. Nothing to show they can talk about something that isn't sex and themselves. That they can joke and have fun (again, outside of sex). Or have intelligent discussion. SOMETHING that would tell me that there is some sort of foundation for an HEA besides really good sex.

 

Don't tell me they have something more than sex. SHOW. ME.


The above is just a sign of crappy writing.

Chapter 3/43 minutes: To flounce or not to flounce, that is the question.
Rock Addiction (Rock Kiss) (Volume 1) - Nalini Singh

How many things do I hate about this story already, let me count the ways:

 

1. So far it has mostly been sex talk. (Only some ~the heroine's traumatic past~ vagueness.) 

2. The hero and heroine seriously said pretty much no words to each other before they were off to her place to screw. (Frigging ew.)

3. The idea indiscriminately screwing randos is somehow "sophisticated".

4. The heroine is a virgin and is jumping into bed with this stranger (third book in a row with this trope, I hate it. I love stories with virgins, but not doing that. The only difference that makes this slightly better than the others is that this is a famous dude she'd been fantasizing about. Only slightly.).

5. Where the hell is the plot? (Will there be a plot?)

6. No, but seriously, there has been no plot (yet?) but we're already in an extremely explicit sex scene.

7. The heroine apologizes for being a virgin. Just, no. (At least the hero didn't get mad about it, that reaction really pisses me off.)

 

That's a lot in 43 minutes and they're not even that far into the actual having gross stranger sex. You know what would have been a more compelling story and an actual romance? Rock star used to getting any woman any time he wants finds girl intriguing, is made to wait, to his surprise falls for her, building of an actual relationship and delicious sexual tension. Why don't romance authors care about the latter two elements any more?

 

I don't know why I want to give the book a chance to hook me. That may be a mistake. Anyone read this who can advise me?

3 TEMPTING REASONS TO READ ROCK ADDICTION


  • THE CHARACTERS ARE SO FREAKING SEXY. Rock Addiction is the story of a wicked lead singer falling fast for Molly the wary librarian. I don’t know about you, but when I hear “librarian” and “rock star” as descriptors for main characters instantly I'm more attracted. Yes, I’m that shallow. It was also really hot to watch Fox tear down all of Molly’s walls and masterfully charm her into a deeper relationship with him then the previously agreed upon "one month stand."
  • ALL THE FEELS. Both Fox the rock god and Molly the hottie librarian have had some horrible childhoods. It was an emotional read as I watched them both overcome their pasts and embrace an honest, loving relationship.
  • THE SECONDARY FRIENDSHIPS. Every new character that was introduced made me want to read their stories as well. Molly’s best friend, Fox’s band mates, Molly’s long-lost sister. I can’t wait to read more about these fictional characters that I’ve grown attached to in such a short time.


❝She wanted to bit his lower lip. Wanted to tug on the silver ring that pierced the corner of that delicious, toe-curling mouth. ❞



It took me a while to get around to this review. Not only was I packing for vacation and babysitting, but this book gave me a review slump. I fell in love with this book so fast, I was surprised by it. Nalini Singh is a talented author, but I wasn’t this into her Psy-Changeling series. Quickly after finishing Rock Addition I purchased the next two stories in the series. Every romance reader should give this book a shot. It was sexy, loving, and kinkier than I expected. I can’t wait to read more from this series!:D
