So it breaks my heart to have to say this…but what the heck Nalini? I eagerly awaited Rock Addiction, pre-ordered it even and was so disappointed.
I know from reading her psy changeling series that her alpha male characters are Wow. I would marry any one of them, hell even a few of the girls. But Fox. OMG, what the hell? He wasn’t an alpha he was a whiney crappy wanna be s*x god.
I don’t know if Nalini was trying a different writing style with this book and I don’t want to be critical because trying something new is brave in itself but I felt so bad reading this, I cringed through 80% of the book.
Utterly completely physical cringing. It read like one of the free books by a new writer. I kept hoping it would get better but it only got worst.
Below are some of the things that had me cringing.
• Book opens on Fox meeting Molly at a party and goes home with her for sexy time and instantly falls in love with her and decides he will never let her go. Comes up with a plan to slowly seduce her over a month to get her to fall in love him.
• Second day Molly agrees to a one month fling they have sexy time and then tells him he needs to leave and she’ll see him the next day.
• Fox erupts acting like a child and says something along the lines of “What the hell. You can’t treat me like this. No one throws me out of their bed. Choose. Either I stay tonight or we’re done” What the hell right? Second day in after deciding to slowly seduce Molly and he’s throwing a tanty.
• Next day Molly realises that she’s played the good girl life for too long and decides to throw caution to the wind, so she calls Fox up to see if they can still have a month long fling and low and behold Fox is down stairs waiting in a Ferrari.
• Then Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex.
There was a side story happening with Molly’s friend Charlie and T-Rex… They seemed to be having the relationship building that I’ve come to love from Nalini. The slow cat and mouse game of seduction, fuelled by a sexy dominate male and a strong female who plays the game just as well only with extreme sass. I was more interested in their story than Molly and Fox’s.
There was too much unnecessary sex in this book and not enough character development or meaningful dialogue. It reminded me of fifty shades, where instead of talking about things, the characters just had sex. Because sex fixes everything right? Wrong. Sex won’t fix a book if that’s all there is to it.
At the end of the book Nalini mentions it will continue on as a series. I won’t be continuing on this journey with her. I will stick to her psy changeling series where alpha’s like Lucas, Judd and Hawke make me want to marry fictional characters.
Last thing…I will probably buy Charlie and T-Rex’s book. But only theirs not the rest of the band’s books.
I'm not sure why other reviewers are upset about the sex scenes, they didn't bother me, they were pretty hot. I did like both characters, and I disagree with other reviewers who say that Molly was basically a door mat, and that Fox was too controlling. (He does like to be in charge, or "alpha", but I think Molly stuck up for herself.) I also disagree that she gave up everything for him, she did have a job in the second part. I mean, she was a librarian, and I think part of the reason was to be "good" and had to do with her past. It was made clear that a lot of Molly's choices were because of the trauma of her past, and that she was smothering part of her real self. I think that the Nalini showed the growth in both characters as their relationship developed and they learned to trust each other.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I read a review where someone criticized the author for not giving lyrics to the song that Fox writes for Molly.....and I disagree. I have (unfortunately) read books where an author has tried to do something similar, and they might have been a very good writer of stories, but they certainly weren't lyricists. And bad lyrics, or stupid ones, just pull you out of the story. She gave a description of their music, not having the lyrics was fine by me.
I do agree with other reviewers about the parts in the book where they hint at something happening with the other characters that will be in their books, but since they are occurring somewhat concurrently with this story, I understand her not wanting to give spoilers, but it was odd.
This was both unexpected and typical of Singh. I know what you're thinking...huh?? How can Rock Addiction be both?
It's Fox's character that's so different. He's the "scorned" one, in a flip role reversal. Sure he's a hard controlling man who handles the spotlight well. A determined man. A man inundated with groupies. But he doesn't want a one-night stand. He's willing to do whatever it takes to win over his curvy librarian. He loves her smile, and I do love how he always hears music around Molly. Makes me think of Mercedes Lackey's Bedlam's Bard series.
Naturally, our librarian is gun shy. She's not interested in the spotlight, fame, or Fox's money. It's that traumatic, scandal-ridden childhood that holds her back. Still, Molly is a genuine woman, a sister, a friend who's loyal. Thea is another genuine person. A sister whom Molly has only recently found.
"I've never had to fight so hard to give a woman so little."
The boys are serious musicians and have been friends since boarding school, through thick and thin. Wait'll you read this bit of back history — you'll learn how the band got its name, lol.
Singh uses third person dual protagonist point-of-view to tell her tale from Molly's and Fox's perspectives, so we hear both sides with its wide range of betrayals. Jesus. I'd like to say we feel both sides as well, but Singh tells more than she shows.
The story does redeem itself for that lack simply by being such a cozy tale of two wounded people finding each other.
Fox is definitely not your stereotypical rock 'n roll singer. He sees Molly. He wants Molly. And not just for one night.
Now everyone wants a Molly.
Molly Webster is a librarian, determined on her independence and a borin..., er, normal existence, to avoid those addictive genes that run in her family. Anne Webster starts a new career as an editor and researcher. Thea is Molly's half-sister who does PR for Schoolboy Choir. Lily, Thea's mother, had been an innocent nineteen-year-old who was seduced...and deported. Patrick Buchanan had been their father, a politician who endorsed family values...in public. Karen had been Molly's useless mother.
Zachary Fox is the demanding lead singer for Schoolboy Choir and drives a Lamborghini Aventador. Gramps and Grammy raised him until they died. His mother was trash in every way. Tawanna is Fox's assistant.
Schoolboy Choir is...
...an American rock band that's made good. David Rivera is the drummer and a terrific cook. Noah is the guitarist who can also play bass; he has a slew of issues that he assuages with a different woman every night. Abe is the keyboardist with major addiction issues who's been divorced for a year now. Maxwell is married to Kim, and they have two boys; he's the crew boss in charge of everything behind the scenes.
Kathleen "Kit" Devigny, a former cheerleader, is an A-list actress who's a friend of the band. Casey is her driver; Butch is her bodyguard.
Justin Chan is the band's lawyer while they're in Australia. Marc is a buddy of Fox's who's got a problem. James is a friend with a jet. Shawn owns a popular nightclub in New York City and gave the boys their first big break.
Charlotte "Charlie" Baird has been Molly's best friend for the past twenty-one years, a mouse who works for a giant corporation. (Her story, Rock Hard , 2, takes place at the same time as Rock Addiction.) T-Rex is Charlie's new, scary boss. Anya, the personal assistant to the CEO, is Charlie's immediate boss. Ernest is the "safe" guy Charlie has been dating.
Ken is a record executive. A.J. is a socialite friend who gives a party with inedible food. Carina is a major recording star who has her uses.
The Cover and Title
The cover is a black-and-white photograph of a bare-chested man from the chin down to his knees in black jeans and a grommet-studded belt. He's in a three-quarter profile with his body facing right, the better to show off the tattooed sleeve on his right arm, his hand holding a microphone.
The title is Molly's problem, she's got a Rock Addiction.
Top reviews from other countries
Molly a shy girl with a harrowing story of bad media publicity bought about by a wayward father.
Fox an extremely Male singer in a rock band who is used the publicity and living life behind a lense. With a history of abandonment.
The 2 come together for a hot night of passion which extends to a month. Somewhere along the way fox realises that molly should be a more permanent fixture in his life, if she can deal with all of the media attention.
A surprisingly sweet story of love. Molly was by far the best character and I lived her exchanges with her best friend Charlotte which made me chuckle.
Most of the sex scenes were raunchy and good. However, by the end of the book it got a bit tedious and found myself skipping some of the scenes.
I have read similar stories with similar plot lines. The difference with this story was there was no constant declarations of love. Which I appreciated.
Other than this, this was a well written book with interesting characters.
As usual, Nalini Singh's work is a cut above a lot of the others out there. Her books are often a little more expensive than many others, but they really are worth it. The book is a good length, expertly written, and full of in-depth characters. I adored Fox and Molly, and I enjoyed reading as their story unfolded. Whenever I picked up the book, I didn't want to put it down again.
The book is very steamy but there is also believable affection between the characters.
I'm off to buy the rest of the series now.
Molly is a librarian desperate to stay away from any sort of limelight due to a terrible event in her past. Fox is a lead singer with a massive rock band on a few weeks break in New Zealand. Fox spots Molly at a party hosted by her sister, the sparks immediately fly between the two. After a passionate night together Fox makes Molly an offer to continue their fling whilst he's in New Zealand but neither of them are prepared for the fall out that follows.
I loved the fact that the story was in two parts. Following Molly and Fox through so much was compelling. I can't wait to read the next book in the series - all of the characters were intriguing.
