Aftershock, Desiree Holt.
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
My first Desiree Holt book – and what a great read it was. I love erotic romance with a solid story, and this uses a rock band romance to back it up – and that another hook for me 😉
Anyway Sydney, she’s a great lead. She’s dragged herself to a point in her career where everthing is crucial. She’s had a Plan for success mapped out for years, been following it rigidly and now she’s at the point where its all coming together. She’s had a tough upbringing, and her aunt had a huge ( negative) impact on her, telling her constantly that relationships were a no no for success, that a man would drag her down. So she’d been undeviating in her approach, worked really hard and boyfreinds are out…then she meets Rick!
Rick too has worked hard for success. His band are a tight team, they are now verging on breaking through to the big time, and though Mark has his fiancee Emma, the others are single but keep it clean. In fact Rick avoids any kind of complication – he thinks there’s no room in his life for anyone if he’s to take the band to the top. Then he meets their new PR person Sydney!
When they first meet its like the band name – Lightnin. The tension between them is electric, sparks arc and the attraction is visceral, they both feel it right down to their bones. I loved them as a couple. The way they get together slowly, each wondering what they should do, can they stop how they feel, does the other person feel the same, then – one kiss – and its a race to get naked and lost in each other. They’re both aware that they need to keep this quiet – it wasn’t what either of them planned, and they want time to absorb it and ensure it doesn’t affect their careers. The love scenes, and they are just that, not just sex but really loving, though incredibly erotic and electric,are so real that the reader can almost feel the steam between them, the heat they generate. It’s really well done. Desiree write erotica as well as romance, and I’ll certainly look out for more of her books, she has the art of writing sex scenes down perfectly, full of sensuality and varied, not just one of those clothes off, a few quick pumps, couple of screams and its over….Then of course the spoke is thrown in, and it’s chaos. You can see where its going to come from, and waiting for that moment and wondering what will happen next is a nailbiting, tension filled read.
It’s a great story, full of realism, and though I know nothing of the rock industry and touring it feels very real. Add in those sensual love scenes and its a winner for me. One to keep.
Stars: Five, cracking read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
