BLOG TOUR REVIEW + GIVEAWAY ~Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh~

Title: Rock Addiction
Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Rock Kiss #1
Release Date: September 9, 2014

My Rating: 3.75 Stars

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…

Rock Addiction calls for another of my good, bad and overall reviews -
The Good 
This is my first Nalini Singh books, and after my experience with Rock Addiction and how she drew me into ALL of the characters, she will definitely hold a place on my TBR list. This book has some serious WOW factor when it comes to the romance and sex. Fox is absolutely to die for. He's a hard rocker, with a dirty mouth, a temper and a sweet disposition (most of the time). I truly loved his character. Molly, while she wasn't perfect or badass, she was real. She and Fox both have very troubling and scarring pasts. Fox doesn't let it define him. He's learned to live for himself. Molly, on the other hand, does the exact opposite. She lets her past into every aspect of her future and present. It screws with her relationships and how she sees the world. But, she's also not adverse to learning from Fox. That's the beauty of their relationship. He teaches her how to move on, and not harp on the bad you've experienced in your life. Their relationship and lives really struck a chord with me. It wasn't sunshine and roses, or even utter heartache and angst. It was two people that had a shi**y hand in their past and learned from it and each other. I can get behind that. Why? Because what I saw in Molly was a lot of character growth. That's what makes this book so good. The growth in Molly and Fox as the formed a life together what fascinating to watch.

The Bad
I mentioned the sex above, well there might have been a little too much of it. I get that it's a connection for the characters, and normally I'm complaining that there wasn't enough sexy times, but I think Rock Addiction just went a little overboard. It wasn't unbearable by any means, but I did find myself beginning to flip pages during the down and dirty. The only other downside I have to this book is the reiteration of what Molly went through. This was mostly just a problem for me during the first, maybe 15% of the book, the rest was much better and the story line flowed incredibly well, in my opinion.

Would I recommend Rock Addiction? Absolutely. Despite the few negatives I mentioned there are so many positives. This world Ms Singh has built is truly captivating. I loved, loved all of the characters and I can't wait to get their stories too. Fox and Molly were both a good intro for the series and I can definitely see them being the "Mom and Dad" of the group now. In the end, the good FAR outweighs the bad and places this book as a good read. And the writing, while my dislikes cover the content, the writing of this book is superb. Very engaging. I will definitely be keeping my eye open for more from Nalini Singh!

Happy Reading!
