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…
How was it?
A sexy escape into the world of rock music and hot guys.
Everyone says that your first attempts at writing a novel end up gathering dust in a drawer (or in the bottom file of your virtual dropbox).
Wanderlust isn't Roni's first attempt but it was written before.
Before her fabulous erotic romance series, Loving on the Edge.
Before Off the Clock, the first book in her new Pleasure Principle series.
Or even her RITA award winning novella, Nice Girls Don't Ride.
Before she was RONI LOREN.
And, it shoots the above theory all to hell.
What always impresses me about Roni's books is her ability to maintain her distinctive voice and style while creating fresh and unique characters. Roni fans find comfort in her voice but know that each character is like a new friend, inviting the reader into their world.
Even though this was written before everything else, the snark, wit and nods to popular culture that Roni is known for are all still there. Even allusions to other well-known characters, (Hello, Pike from Call on Me) are included.
As well as so many intriguing layers of conflict and deeply complicated hero and heroine that keep the pages turning.
I finished this book in one sitting. It is fast-paced, funny and the love scenes are definitely inspiring. I'd happily recommend it as an introduction to Roni's work or an addition to an already happy fan's collection.
