From the New York Times bestselling author of the Loving on the Edge series and Off the Clock, a story of sex, love, rock & roll, and a reporter who's about to learn a new meaning for staying on top of her assignment...

Restaurant critic Aubrey Bordelon is never at a loss for words to describe her meals in the fancy restaurants of New Orleans. But after her magazine's high-profile music reporter falls ill, she finds herself out of her element and in a sea of screaming fans awaiting Wanderlust's lead singer, Lex Logan. The sound of his voice gives her goosebumps, and the stage presence of the hard-bodied rock star takes her breath away. So when he pulls her onstage for a sexy stunt, she knows she's in real trouble.

Lex doesn't want to pretend that the sparks on stage between him and Aubrey never happened, but it certainly makes the fact that she's writing a story on his band all the more dangerous. The last thing he needs is some nosy reporter revealing their problems to the world. But the sexy Southern belle doesn't give up easily, and soon he's wondering if the best way to chase her off the story is to coax her into his bedโ€ฆ


I was provided a review copy by Intermix; this did not influence my opinion of the book.


2.5 Stars

Audrey is a food reporter for a magazine and has been given the assignment to cover a story for another writer who is sick. She is to write an in-depth article on the popular band, Wanderlust.

Lex doesn’t want her writing the story. His band is in trouble and the last thing they need is a reporter snooping around.

He tries to push her away, says and does things that will make her quit, including getting her in his bed. But having sex with her turned out to be the thing that kept him interested in her.

Sex, there’s a lot of it, and I felt it overshadowed the plot. The “insta-love” was a bit much for me. I had trouble connecting with the characters and storyline. I wanted a rocker story. I wanted tension, character development, something that would get me involved in the story. Sadly, I didn’t find those things.
