Misadventures on the Night Shift

Waterhouse. (Misadventures). Nov. 2017. 223p. ISBN 9781943893430. $19.99. EROTICA
Abby Medford has been a fan of sexy rocker Lucas Ford since her teenage years. Having sowed her wild oats and finally settled into the serious student life, the reformed "good girl" works the night shift at a hotel to get in extra studying hours and overcome her dangerously impulsive past. When Lucas walks into her hotel for a marathon writing session, it's clear the salty rocker needs a serious attitude adjustment, which Abby is surprised to find herself all too willing to oblige. Sparks immediately fly; Abby sizzles with desire to take cocky Lucas down a peg, while Lucas can't get enough of her no-nonsense persona. When Lucas realizes that "Abby the Ass-Kicker" is just what he needs to get his creative juices flowing, the two enter into an intriguing (albeit far-fetched) agreement that involves play-acting a voyeuristic love triangle from his past in the hopes of inspiring Lucas's next hit song. But when the charade gives way to potential true love, both Abby's and Lucas's hearts end up on the line. Best-selling author Rowe's (Captain; Ball Peen Hammer) vibrant writing is compulsively readable. Readers will applaud Abby's snappy retorts and refusal to enable Lucas's entitled nature while rooting for the pair to evolve into a hot, happy partnership.
VERDICT A slightly wacky premise that hits the mark with plenty of sensual sparring. For fans of the author and where erotic "rock star" romances are popular.
