3D_Addison

Blurb:

For Addison Beltrand, PR rep for Bold International, Inc. climbing the corporate ladder is all that matters in life. Her hard work is finally rewarded with the promotion she’s worked her ass off to earn—but the gig comes at a price. She leaves in two days for a twelve-week tour with America’s hottest alternative rock band, 69 Bottles.

Talon Carver, lead singer of 69 Bottles, has no problem with women–as long as they’re gone by morning. When Addison shakes up his world, it’s a huge problem—compounded by the fact that Addison’s not the only one he wants.

Kyle Black, manager of 69 Bottles, has a secret. He and Addison are closer than she thinks, but telling her could keep her away. When Talon sets his sights on Addison, Kyle uses his secret to push her into Talon’s arms, only to discover she isn’t the only one he needs.

Two men. One dilemma.

Talon is wild, reckless and loves control.

Kyle is calm, collected and loves passion.

The perfect balance…or Addison’s ultimate undoing?

Talon and Kyle push their boundaries and Addison’s, but can they throw their reservations to the wind and claim her together?

Two men. One woman. A rock band. A tour bus. One Wild Ride…

****Content Warning****

Sexy, naked, bisexual rock stars…and a lot more…This book contains, but is not limited to the following sexual content – reader discretion is advised – hot sex between two men and one woman. M/M/F, M/F/M, M/F, F/M and M/M sexual content. There are no boundaries when these three crash together, as long as you’re over 18 years of age.

My Review:

Before this book I’d never really got on with the whole rock band sub-genre. I read some a few years ago and they just didn’t do anything for me. I didn’t connect with the characters, they didn’t feel real to me. Bottom line, they didn’t excite me. I thought I was maybe getting too old, it’s been a good decade and a half since I lusted after a real life rock god.

Then I go on the Smutsonian and have a look around to see what Shurrn is recommending and there’s ‘Claiming Addison: 69 Bottles’ #1 by Zoey Derrick. She’s a new author to me but it gets a rave review and it’s bisexual menage – I’m already half in love with it! So I take the plunge and buy it. Best £1.99 I’ve spent in a long time.

Surprisingly the most important thing about this book for me is how much I loved Addison. It’s rare for me to be so taken with a heroine, but she grabbed my attention immediately and held it throughout the book. She’s strong, sassy and sometimes a snarky bitch. She doesn’t take any shit and she knows what she wants. It worked for me. She has just the right amount of issues and a bit of angst (I can’t stand too much angst) to keep her interesting. I totally envy her confidence and I want her tattoos. Plus she gets two insanely hot men – yeah I’d take a day in her life, no problem!

Now the blokes… (I love it when it’s plural!) Kellan and Talon are sexy as hell on their own, together it’s like an avalanche of sexy hotness. They’re a fantastic mix of dominant, tender, and rockstar attitude. The sex is hot, but I’m guessing there’s a lot more to come (no pun intended – stop being so dirty!) in the next book ‘Craving Talon: 69 Bottles’ #2 which is due out 17th Feb 2015.

‘Claiming Addison’ is a bisexual menage and it starts right at the beginning for the two men. So you get all those tense, hot first touches and all that yummy uncertainty that then leads to mind blowing orgasms. So good.

‘Claiming Addison’ rang all my bells and has me hooked. I can’t wait for their story to continue, there’s plenty left to tell.

5 ***** bright, shiny stars.

5* Review: ‘Zoey And The Nice Guy’ by Carter Ashby

This is a contemporary romance review – it’s sexy though and so worth a read!

What a fantastic find Carter Ashby is – I loved this book!

Zoey is a sparky, sassy, hard as nails heroine with a bucket load of believable insecurities. She’s got barriers like Fort Knox. Kellan has to figure out if he’s up to the job of breaking through them and if she’s worth the effort.

She’s not easy to handle, but then what woman worth the effort is? Carter Ashby has created a three dimensional character who makes you cheer her on, bury your head in your hands and smile in understanding.

I laughed out loud so many times while I was reading this book; a couple of times I had tears in my eyes I was laughing so hard (cookie baking time and Clint Eastwood – that’s all I’m saying!). I love that feeling and a book is an automatic keeper for me when that happens.

Kellan is a nice guy it’s true, but he’s sexy and funny too. He learns how to stand up for himself and his emotional strength is everything that Zoey doesn’t realise she needs. Plus, he gives her great sex – what more can she ask for?!

The supporting characters are interesting and well rounded already. I’m really looking forward to Jayce and Maya’s story – ‘Maya and the Tough Guy’ – coming next.

So another 5* review from me. I’m on a roll…


I found this book on the Smutsonian newsletter ‘Weekend Updates’ – sign up for it if you haven’t already. It’s a fantastic way to keep up with the great books that are out there just waiting to be read.

Happy reading, Rebecca x
