Book Review - Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh

Rock Addiction (Schoolboy Choir, #1)Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm a big fan of Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series. So I jumped at the chance to read an advance copy of the book and I wasn't disappointed.

The beginning was a little slow.  There was also a feeling of missing part of the story, mostly the background history between Molly, her sister, and their father.


The first half of the book takes place in New Zealand. Molly's home playing field. Molly wants a quite life. Trips to the market. Work at the library. A simple life.  Then she meets Fox and all that simple gets kind of complicated. Molly is willing to let her life get a little complicated and spend time with Fox while the bad is in the area but after that she wants to go back to simple.  It all goes back to Molly's past. There was some kind of scandal with her father and it just destroyed her life.

She introduces Fox to her simple life. However, that simple life, doesn't work for Fox.  He takes Molly to his home playing field, California. This second half is when things really started to pick up.

One of the things I love about the Psy-Changeling series is the way Nalini writes her alpha males.  She doesn't let the reader down in Fox.  He's a sexy, alpha male, rock star. He can ride high on the fame, but he doesn't forget where he came from and those that helped him get there.  It's all about the music and his friends, until he meets Molly.  Then he's pretty much focused solely on her, poor Molly.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!

Guest Post - The Power of the Written Word

While I am recovering from the stress of writing a final paper, new author, Gerald Freeman, has written a guest post.  His new book "Kill Daddy" is available as a ebook on Amazon.

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
