RELEASE DATE: September 9th, 2014

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…


I received a complimentary copy of Rock Addiction in exchange for an honest review.

When I think of Paranormal Romance, Nalini Singh is one of the first people that come to my mind. Yup, this awesome writer is one of my goddesses of PNR. But before she wrote all those hot shifters, vampires, and angels, I loved her as a contemporary romance author. Imagine my delight when I found out that she wrote a New Adult Rock Star romance. I was thrilled, and at the same time, worried because she is a PNR writer now and I was worried that I might get disappointed. But still, I have to read it. I did and I'm glad I did.

Rock Addiction is a story about a straight-laced librarian named Molly Webster. She’s never the one to break rules and propriety, and hell-bent on maintaining an orderly and ordinary life – that is until she saw Zachary Fox, the sexy, brooding vocalist of School boy Choir. Throwing all caution to the air, she indulges herself to one night of passion with the sexy rocker. And that’s how it should be, just one night. Unfortunately, Fox has other plans. From the first moment that Fox saw Molly, he wanted her to be in his bed and in his life - and he will do everything to make her his. Even if it means letting Molly believe that what they have is temporary. But Fox is a rock god. And Molly, once burned by the media’s spotlight, wants nothing to do with fame. Can Fox convince Molly that what they have is worth trying for? And can Molly stand the intrigue and women that come with Fox’s fame? Then you better read Rock Addiction to know the whole story. *wink*

I got three words for you: INTENSE STEAMY HOT. This book got me fanning myself in most of the chapters. The chemistry between Fox and Molly is explosive. And there are lots of explosive scenes in the book. Nalini Singh didn’t lose that extra special something she puts in her alpha heroes that makes me love them to death. Yup, Fox is as intense as any other alpha heroes  from Singh’s PNRs. You know, the signature “She’s mine. I need to have her” kind of alpha attitude that always takes my breath away. I’m not a big fan of rock star heroes but Fox is way, way hot. I also like Molly, though she’s a bit frustrating sometimes, especially in the middle part. But overall, she’s a nice girl and I love how she was shown as a real woman in the book. Real woman in the sense that she was not portrayed as the perfect gorgeous girl we typically read in novels. She has flaws and that made her more adorable. I also like the other characters in the story, particularly David the Drummer and Thea, the band’s publicist and Molly’s sister. I’m really curious about the string of emails between him and Thea which was mentioned in the book. I can’t wait for Book 1.5 to read all about it.

Writing-wise, Rock Addiction is way better than good. I can’t fault the writing. It’s beautifully written and the story is smooth flowing. But that is already expected because duh, IT’S NALINI SINGH! One of the best romance writers there is. Story-wise, I love it. I don’t mind insta-love. Hell, I’m a hardcore PNR fan and insta-love is almost a given in every PNR book. It’s in the way the story was told and tis book is written by a master storyteller. If you will look past the over-abundant sex scenes in the story (yep, there’s too much sex! And I don’t know if I should complain or not. Lol!), you’ll see a beautiful story of a woman broken by people who should have loved her and how she faced all her fears to be with the man she loves. It’s all about taking chances and learning to trust again after others kicked you when you were at your lowest.

I don’t really have anything to complain about in the book, except maybe for the overloaded sex scenes. But I’m still thinking if it’s really a bad thing or not. Well, I liked it but maybe it wouldn’t have hurt if it was lessened just a little bit.

I’m giving Rock Addiction 4.5 Fairy Wings. It was a great book and I enjoyed reading it that I’m now looking forward to the next book. I would definitely recommend this to all new adult and rock star romance fans. And also to all Nalini Singh fans who want to read her books from a different genre. This is a good story to start.


Fox hadn’t become the lead singer of one of the best-selling rock bands in history by being a shrinking violet. No, he went after what he wanted, no holds barred. And the raw promise he could feel between him and Molly? He had to know where it would lead, the need so strong he hadn’t felt anything like it since the day he’d figured out that music was his escape, the air in his lungs.

Which was why he was leaning against the wall beside Molly’s apartment at five that afternoon, a guitar by his side.

The elevator doors opened at a quarter after the hour, Molly going motionless two steps outside of it, the doors closing silently at her back. Yeah, she hadn’t expected him, but Fox was ready to work with that. Waiting patiently as she took a deep breath and completed the trek down the corridor, he drew in the scent of her, his gaze lingering on the fluttering pulse in her neck.

“How did you get past security?”

Fox smiled slowly at the blurted-out question, wondering if Molly knew how bad she was at hiding her emotions. He liked it, liked that he saw the real Molly, not an illusion she’d created to tempt him—not that she had to do anything but smile to tempt him. “I told you the security sucks.”

Unable to resist, he reached out to run his finger down one creamy cheek flushed with a mix of surprise, passion, and, he was certain, sweet, hot feminine anger. His guess was borne out when Molly unlocked her door with jittery hands and put down her handbag on one corner of the bench, her fingers trembling before she curled them into her palms. “You’re breaking the rules.”

“What rules?” Closing the door, he leaned back on it and willed her to face him. Much as he loved the shape of her from the back, he liked watching those expressive eyes whisper her mood to him.

Shoulders tight, she turned. “This was supposed to be a one-night stand.”

“Ah.” Folding his arms over the plain black of his T-shirt, he said, “How about a one-month stand instead?” He knew he had to play this exactly right. Molly was wary of him, and yeah, he could understand why. To have her in his life beyond a fleeting instant, he’d have to win her trust.

She jerked up her head. “What?”

“Why not? I like you. You like me.” He smiled—because the reason Molly had needed to jerk up her head was that she’d been staring at his chest. “Admit it.”

Sitting down on the bench, she began to unzip her boots, very obviously not looking at him. “You’re okay for a rock star.”

He wanted to bite her, then pet her until she was limp and languid in his arms. “We burn up together.” Deliberately modulating his voice—his instrument—for maximum effect, low and bedroom rough, he saw her fingers stutter on the zipper. “I’m here for a month. It’s an easy equation.”

When the words “Let me think about it” fell from her mouth, he thought she might’ve been as startled as he was, her lips parting on a slight gasp—as if to call back the declaration.
