My blog assistant Trish read this one and you can see her review below. I think Trish has done a great job describing what she felt when reading the book!
One night of rampant passion with a rock star, that’s all it’s supposed to be. Ginny Walters isn’t looking for love, only some sexy fun with an amazingly hot guy, that is, until she hooks up with Black Halo’s lead guitarist, Ash Gore, on the night the band implodes. When vocalist Xane walks off stage bringing the gig to a premature end, Ash and the guys find themselves unable to reach their hotel due to the presence of an irate mob. Luckily, Ginny offers them the use of her room for the night. Ginny does her best to be a good hostess. However, it’s not long before she discovers a side to womanizing, bad boy, Ash that she never imagined. Beneath his hard rock image, is a man so hung up on the possibility of being hurt by love that he’s unwilling to risk becoming emotionally involved. How can she convince him that the bond between them is worth exploring, given that she’s not sure dating a rock star is terribly bright idea? Ash can’t seem to get Ginny out of his head. She’s totally unlike the groupies he normally beds; women who love to fan his ego, but ultimately leave him dismally unsatisfied. Ginny sees through all his bullshit and the media hype to the scarred man beneath. Given that instinctive understanding, does he really want to say goodbye forever coming daybreak? Maybe it’s time they both gave love another chance.
2.5 – 3 SEX FILLED STARS This is a short erotic story about living out a fantasy, losing your inhibitions and making some kick ass memories in one night. Ash and Ginny definitely have insta-lust. Right from the opening scene – we get sex, sex, sex. If that is what you are looking for, then this is for you. I like the story, but felt something was missing for me. I felt the plot itself was hard to comprehend over one night. I wished the characters were more developed and we got to learn a little more about each of them, I felt it was a little rushed. In saying that, I did enjoy the sexcapades throughout the story. And I did learn a little about Ash and Ginny, but was hoping to delve deeper into their story. Ash, lead guitarist of Black Halo, is your sexy, cocky rock star. He’s unhappy about the band’s mid tour ruin and heads to the dressing room only to find Ginny there. Ginny is confident, sexy and smart and loves sex. She happens to be in the right place at the right time as Ash is looking for a distraction. Even though Ash is trying to deal with the bands collapse he is also struggling with his own personal chaos. He doesn’t do relationships, he does women. But Ginny is different, she wants to please him. This is something unexpected for Ash which has him second guessing and doubting himself even more. This story is about the sex-capades of Ash and Ginny over one long night. As I mentioned earlier, there was plenty of sex but there wasn’t enough depth to the story for me. I would have like to have seen more coverage in the story line as to where Ginny actually came from and how she landed in their dressing room. Also, to see the story through for more than one night. I felt it was written well, just needed a little more than just the sex. I wanted to feel the connection between Ash and Ginny. I know it was there, I just couldn’t feel it. After reading this book I found out that it followed Come Undone – maybe if I had read that first I would have a better concept of how this begins. I find it hard to write a review like this, but every so often, it just doesn’t work for me.
