Nalini!! I wasn't sure about reading this one, as it's not my normal style of choice... but I LOVED it!! I can't wait to read about all the other characters too, especially Charlotte & T-Rex!! Thanks for another great one!
I didn't have a doubt in my mind that I should read this, because, damn, it's a Nalini Singh book. :) and all those hot rock gods and smexy scenes aren't a disadvantage, either... And now I'm hooked, of course. It. Was. AWESOME!! Again.So I can't wait to read about all the chaacters, Thea and David, Charlotte and T-Rex, and maybe, just maybe I'm most curious about Noah and Kit.Sophia
Initially I was skeptical. The few Rockstar, Motorcycle themed romance novels I have read have been pure duds for me.I enjoyed "Rock Addiction" and the setting. It had me checking out which real life rock stars have been married "forever" There was a point where I thought I was going to toss the book away. The scene where she sees the picture of him and this girl at an after party and she starts doubting him. I was like, "if she walks away in a sulk, I am so tossing this book". I felt that Molly was on the edge of coming across as a whiny- wimpy woman and that was getting on my nerves a little. Fox is a total Alpha male and I was a tad disturbed that Ms Singh chose to hook him up with a virgin, it just did not ring true..the whole "super sexually experience man with damsel virgin" thing had my feminist side on alert. That said, Ms Singh managed to deliver a good book.Now if Fox had been paired with Molly's sister.. now that.. would have been a ride because you have two really strong characters coming together. I am looking foward to reading David and Thea. T-Rex and Charlotte almost upstaged Molly and Fox. I kept looking forward to reading more about T-Rex and Charlotte. All in all and good book and I am looking forward to the series.
I had some issues with Fox, but I loved Molly. And I really enjoyed the glimpses we got of the supporting cast. I liked this book, just didn't love it. But that's okay, I feel that way about some of the Psy/Changeling books as well. I am very much looking forward to the rest of the series. Particularly David and Thea's story and Charlotte and T-Rex. I am also waiting to see if Noah and Kit get together. Did anyone else get the feeling that Abe and his ex had a daughter that died and that's why they divorced/he turned to drugs? That's my current theory anyway.
I think the supporting characters were the strongest part of this book, and I'm really looking forward to stories for the other bandmates - but not as much as Charlie and T-Rex! There are plenty of romances about football players out there but not rugby players. Oh my...I can't help but have a song for everything and Sometimes by Britney Spears really makes me think of Molly. It took me most of the book to warm up to her but she handled it all like a champ in the end. The celebrities who recently had private photos hacked also give Rock Addiction interesting relativity. Fortunate timing I guess (not for the celebrities - that sucks - especially with all the news outlets that just add fuel to the fire discussing it).
Absolutely loved this. Haven't read a contemporary romance before but this was WOW. All the characters were brilliant, I can't wait to get to know them all more. Fox and Molly had such a raw depth to them, their scars shaping them and their relationship. Trusting each other physically soon turned into much more and it was at times heartbreaking but very powerful.Now I can't help but look around Britomart and imagine Molly and Charlie eating ice-cream discussing T-Rex.This is a beautiful new world so thank you Nalini.
I am sorry that I hesitated to pick up this book. I was disappointed few times with books about rock stars that I was worried that it would be the same with this book. I was mistaken. This book is AWESOME.I have bad memories of Auckland and New Zealand in general but imagining Molly and Fox as well as Charlie and T-Rex strolling together at the library (I kept thinking of the one near UoA), Britomart and the morning market (Ferrari meet horse track, lol) I remembered the few good memories there. Thank you for that. As always, your characters are almost real that I wanted to be their friends. Thank you.
The best part of this book is T-rex and Charlotte.This is not my favourite book, but I will read rest of the series to know how T-rex and Charlotte story ends.In the middle of the book I was going to put it away because it started to remind me softer version of 50shades.There is too many sex scenes and not enough background for that volume.I keep waiting for your next regular books.
I absolutely agree with Anonymous, on all accounts. T-rex and Charlotte were the more interesting part of the book and their story would have been a welcome addition here. With less sex scenes, Rock Addiction could have been a great novella.I am going to continue to read the series, because I liked all the characters presented in the book, especially Noah and David, and of course Charlotte.
I love it...will you be writing Charlotte and Gabriel's story too?? I want to read their love-hate scenes...
I adored T-Rex and Charlotte, and I'm definitely going to buy their book, for the rest, sorry, but I actually had to skip some parts, just to finish this book. I had nothing with the characters, and the story lacked a strong line.
