“Not only does it give us a great romance, but it lays out the groundwork that has me already anxious to read at least the next 3 books!  Talk about creating an addition.” ~ Under the Covers

When I first heard about Ms. Singh’s decision to go back to contemporary romance, my first thought was  “She can do no wrong, I’m in!”  And I’m happy to report that I enjoyed ROCK ADDICTION a lot!

Ms. Singh writes amazing characters, there’s no doubt about it.  From heroes that you can’t help but want and love, to heroines that make you cheer them on.  Fox was all that and more for me.  He’s sexy and badass.  I love a man who is determined and knows what he wants.  And he wants Molly almost with a single-minded focus and goes after her.  Then with that same focus he works to keep her.  I am a sucker for all that intensity!

Then there’s Molly.  She’s a bit less confident than I usually like but she manages to grow into her own throughout the book.  From not wanting a relationship with someone in the public eye like a rock star to being strong enough to withstand the craziness that their life together will be, full of fans and paparazzi.  She’s just a heroine you can easily relate to!

Molly and Fox are definitely hot together.  They have great chemistry and maybe that’s what got me to overcome the insta-love.  Fox is a dirty talker, and he likes to make Molly forget about any issues by having sex.  There is plenty of sexy times, all very sensual.  But maybe a bit too much of it.  But even when it’s not all about sex, these two are fun to read about.  This is one of the things Ms. Singh does best.  She can make any story work and make me believe.

ROCK ADDICTION is sweet and very sexy, even if predictable.  I loved that we didn’t get any unnecessary drama and that once Fox sets his sights on Molly he stays true to her.  I found by the end that was important to me.  Fans be warned, this is not your typical Singh writing style.  And not because of the genre change. More on the way she tells this story.

This sets the perfect backdrop for the series.  Not only does it give us a great romance, but it lays out the groundwork that has me already anxious to read at least the next 3 books!  Talk about creating an addition.  I love all the men of Schoolboy Choir!

About Nalini Singh

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
