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.
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'm a Nalini Singh fan. I like her archangel and psy changling series. Have listened to both series, some several times and can't wait to pounce on the next installment. This was like it was written by someone else. Nothing happened and the characters never grew on me. I wanted to tell them to grow up and pay attention. Reeaally......Felt like the author was trying to write something more "commercial".
Not any more of this series
wouldn't be top of my list
boredom mostly, and ticked off at the waste of my time.
nothing happened - no chemistry - they look at each other at a party and next page they are together - no build up to story line and again nothing happenes in the book
"Great new series!"
Loved it. can not wait for the rest of book to be released in audio format.
I'm 3 hours in and unimpressed. It's got good sex scenes and starts them early, but in between there ain't much plot. The story is set in New Zealand with New Zealanders among the main characters, but so far there has been one, exactly one, person read with a New Zealand accent, and that was an unnamed neighbor with maybe two lines of dialog.
Hero: aggressive male, a few issues, mundane trope.
Heroine: major issues, timid, and rather pathetic.
Bored and moving on. Hoping Ms Singh gets bored and returns to writing about angels that make vampires and the people who get to play catch with runaway vamps. At least those characters all have backbones.
"LOVEABLE CHARACTERS & A GREAT STORY"
I loved this listen, Fox wasn't your average bad boy Rocker because straight away he knew he wanted Molly and schemed to get her and keep her. He could tell she came with a lot of past demons that haunted her and made her very nervous about commitment that's why she didn't want to be seen by the paparazzi because then they would find out the truth about her past. Fox also had some trauma in his past that made him a bit moody and volatile. But these two lovers talked to each other, shared their fears, were committed to each other, understood each other, trusted and had faith in each other so it was an enjoyable, smooth and easy listen.
They couldn't keep their hands off each other so there was plenty of sex and the rest of the characters and Band mates were all very entertaining and likeable. So no real dramas just a little angst as a bit of insecurities crept in but great Band dynamics and an awesome narrator. My only complaint was the ending seemed to skip forward and then be wrapped up very quickly and I would have liked it to have given more details about their move and for it to have continued longer (but damn it we can't have everything).
Worth a credit? I love Nalini Singh (especially her Archangels in the Guild Hunter series) and although this is a whole new Contemporary route for her to take I think she did a great job which was very creditworthy and I'm eagerly watching out for the next Band member to be struck by Cupid's arrow.
"Too cheesy for the subject matter"
Oui! That was painful to get through. I fall asleep listening to audiobooks all of the time (even good ones), but I feel asleep at the END of this one. The story wasn't horrible but not really original. Hot rock guy meets sweet, innocent, gorgeous, and surprisingly single girl and they fall for each other. They both have lot's of baggage from difficult childhoods, so there's a lot to work out. But the book feels like my grandma wrote it. I don't know if it's the narrator or just the dialog (both I think), but all of the things they say sound like they're straight out a chessy 80's sitcom.
If you really like the rock god's thing, go with the Sinner's on Tour series or the Bad Habit's series.
was,a bit long and repetitious but I liked the story and the main character interaction.
"Nalini Singh Knows How to Create an Addiction !!!!"
I found great enjoyment out of both versions of this work. I read Rock Addiction as my first work by this author and was hooked. When I was notified it was available on audio I purchased it as soon as it became live.
When Molly went into the music studio to talk to Fox about his actions toward her. It was a defining moment in their relationship. I felt the mood between the couple.
Molly was my favorite as she filled in all the emotions with her voice of the character.
I'm still listening to the book, but as of chapter 13, I'm not impressed. I actually read book 2 "Rock Hard" first and it captivated me from page 1.
So I skipped to chapter 23 and listened for a bit, still not holding my attention, it's mostly a lot of whinning to me. I understand that the main characters have issues and problems but, it's as if the entire book is just about her whinning about a past horror. I dont know what i'd do if i had to experience somethin like what she (Molly) experienced.
Skipped to chapter 30 and still more whinning. Ok, just to much whinning for me. T-Rex and Charlie's story is far better than this one because at least Charlie Mouse (Charlotte) fought back and took her life back and it didn't take 30 chapters to do it either.
Maybe I'm not fully understand the jest of the book. I'll listen to it again in the hopes that I get a better undertanding of the book and hopefully like it better the second time around.
The narration was good, I'd never heard of Justine O. Keef until reading Nalini Singh and I really like her narration. Even though I didn't care for the first book in this series, I'm going to continue to read this author.
"Good story, excellent narration."
Singh, always gives a good storyline in all her works. However, Justine O. Keef breathed life to the characters.
"totally loved this book,"
the narrator made it worth listening to, totally recommend this series of books and author
"My favourite book of the series"
This is my favourite book of the series so far. I really enjoy T. rex and Charlie but nothing beats Fox.
I got sooo board. The narrator sounded too old to portray a 24 year. Who already seemed like some old fuddy duddy. Her back story also didn't cut it for me. Wasted credit.
