- Molly Webster is nothing if not a safety girl. Over the years she's put up barriers around her heart and has done what she could to keep a low profile. When Zachary Fox, the lead singer for the popular rock group Schoolboy Choir, sings his way into her world, she decides to throw caution to the wind and indulge in a one night stand. She's deceived herself into thinking a one night stand with the gorgeous rock star is safe, void of an emotional attachment with a finite termination date. A one night stand, however, isn't what Fox has in mind. He's known about Molly for some time, and once he met her, the idea that had been slowly forming in his head solidified and his decision was made. He didn't want a one night stand or even the one month stand he proposed to ease her into the idea of them as a couple. He was determined she was the one, and once the stubborn rock star gets something into his head, there's little that can stop him. He may not be one to believe in fate or destiny, but whatever it is he and Molly share, he knows it's more than he's ever felt with anyone else before. If he gets his way, he'll become Molly's rock addiction, or more accurately, her Fox addiction.
"You know when you get the whisper of a melody in your head, or the murmur of a song? And you have the gut feeling that if you could just hear the rest of it, just capture the music (...) you'd have something (...) amazing?"
"Yeah well, that's what it feels like with Molly. (...) I'm not about to walk away from that."
- Zachary Fox's voice has a deep raspy sexiness to it that has skyrocketed him and his band to fortune and fame. The center of many a woman's fantasy, he has a body made in heaven and voice that sounds like a combination of sex and fine whiskey. Over the past months he's heard a lot about his publicist's younger sister, Molly. Even before he's met her, he's harbored an interest in her. Seeing her interacting with others in person, he feels himself being pulled to her. Her bright smile and warm disposition stirs something in him that he can't quite name, but he knows he wants to be near her. He senses right off the bat that he'll have to ease his way into her life and that may just kill him. Taking things slow has never been his style.
- Overall I gave this one 3 1/2 out of 5 roses. It was fun, quick read that was not quite up to the caliber of her Psy/Changling or Guild Hunter's series, but delightful none the less. I've read several of Singh's earlier works so I had an idea of what to expect with this one. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one gained not the SHOWER rating I would have imagined, but a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed. I admit, while I'd probably close my reader if someone came near while I was reading, it didn't prevent me from reading it in public as the heat of a SHOWER rated story would have. I'm hopeful that the following stories in the series will crank things up a notch.
