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 bed…
WOW! I’m on a ROLL!!! WANDERLUST was INCREDIBLE! Definitely one of the best rock star romances I’ve read in a very long time. I just hope this turns into a series because I WANT MORE!
This was a downright DELICIOUS read, full of scorching hot sex and witty and sexy banter with every turn of the page. Aubrey and Lex’s chemistry on and off the stage was combustible! Aubrey was out of her element with this story she was stuck with, and Lex had NO PROBLEM making her feel on edge the entire time. But she did hold her own through the thick of it, and I wanted to high-five that girl on multiple occasions for some of the shit she had to put up with. Lex wanted Aubrey, when she was just the gorgeous girl he pulled on stage, but when he found out who she really was, all bets were off. He would make her run away from doing this story no matter what. He can’t afford to let the world know what goes on backstage. When he finds out that Aubrey is not so easily swayed, he steps up his game and his goal is to get her in his bed.
“Tell me yes,” he said, his lips brushing against the sensitive spot behind her ear. “Tell me you want me.”
Things only get more complicated from there. Lex isn’t the kind of guy to settle down. Or so he keeps telling himself that. But something about the little vixen has him wishing he could be that guy for her…the kind of guy that could love this woman.
“I wish I was a guy who could stick around. I could love a girl like you.”
Total SWOON alert, am I right? Both Aubrey and Lex knows that there is no happily ever after in the stars for them, so why not make the best of it. But it only makes them fall deeper, which makes the goodbye that much harder.
I LOVED every single thing about this book. Roni Loren has always been a favorite of mine with her Loving on the Edge novels, but my god, giving us WANDERLUST was an amazing treat. Red HOT and bursting with emotion, makes WANDERLUST a book that should be on every romance reader’s TBR!
