Can a teenage fantasy live up to her adult desires?
Confession, I'm sorta addicted to rockstar romance. Yeah, I've read over 300 of them. Of course I was excited to read this after getting a gander of the synopsis declaring it involved a bad-boy rocker. After enjoying every page, I have no problem adding Misadventures of the Night Shift to my #RockstarAlert recommendations.
Abby is determined to put her past behind her. She's purposely living the boring life she's mapped out for herself. Attending college to be a lawyer and working the night shift at a hotel so she can study during the 'dead zone' when it's not busy. Her co-worker and best friend is always trying to get her attention, pulling her away from studying. She's rarely successful, but when she mentions Lucas Ford she gets the desired result. She has no idea that's he's Abby's teenage heartthrob. And when said heartthrob shows up as a customer in the penthouse suite of their hotel, she plays it cool. Fortunately, her bestie is not around when Abby lets her crazy loose on him regarding hotel policy. She surprises herself with her passionate lecture on the law regarding smoking in the hotel lobby. Not that it did much good when he calmly told her to 'make an exception.'
Lucas is used to getting what he wants when he wants it. He found Abby's kindergarten teacher appearance mixed with her bad girl vocabulary intriguing. Wanting to see her fired up again, he calls down to the front desk of the hotel and requests that she personally deliver his room service order. When she shows up, he treats her like any other groupie and ends up on the receiving end of her wrath. The fire in her eyes lights a fire in his crotch. Unfortunately, she's not going to put it out. Nope, she told him off and stormed out of his suite using an even more colorful vocabulary,
one that a kindergarten teacher would never use. What would it take to get her to come back?
Let me tell you, my rockstar fantasies got played out in living color as I virtually experience the night shift with Abby and Lucas. It was so good, I might be heading back to that penthouse suite a time or twenty, I have those pages bookmarked. (wink-wink)
I'm enjoying the hell out of the Misadventure series and I can't wait to see what they have in store for me next. The line forms here...
