(Dangerous Noise #3)
Publication date: March 30th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance
I’m married to a rock star.
And I don’t even know his last name.
There’s a tall, tattooed man in my bed.
Not any tall, tattooed man.
He’s a rock star.
A sex god.
And now he’s my husband.
Last night, I married Joel.
It’s ridiculous. I’m a good girl. I don’t get into trouble. I don’t look twice at bad boys.
I can’t stay married to a rock star.
But there’s something about Joel. Not just the way his green eyes light up when he smiles, or the way he makes me laugh, or the way he makes me shake with pleasure–
I’m not sure I can walk away.
Bella Chase is a challenge.
With the tight bun and the cute cardigan, she’s as prim and proper as they come.
My only plan for the night is getting her under me, screaming my name.
Filling her with so much pleasure she begs me to stop.
I didn’t plan on marrying her.
But now that she’s my wife, I’m not about to let her go.
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
So while reading Dangerous Rock, I started to think about that argument about writing vs. storytelling. Storytellers have a story to tell and get it down on the page in whatever form it takes while writers love the journey of the words sometimes to the detriment of the story.
Dangerous Rock is told by a storyteller. It’s the third book in a rock n’ roll series (now you know why I wanted to read it) and has established a readership, who seem to be highly loyal to the series. And, this is an important fact. Obviously Crystal Kaswell as storyteller has created a world that has attracted a following.
Dangerous Rock really didn’t work for me because it struck me more as erotica than as romance and I was anticipating romance. Erotica is not a sub-genre of romance; it’s an animal all on its own and obviously if you expect to read one and end up with the other, you will be disappointed.
In past reviews, I have acknowledged that there is a reader for every book and that reader isn’t always me. My guess is that if you love erotic new adult novels, this one is for you, especially if you like the mix of rock n’ roll, which Kaswell does inject in Dangerous Rock. She doesn’t just say that Joel is a rock star, we get to see him as rock star.
If you’re a fan of erotica, you might want to give this series a go, especially if you like the rock star factor.
This is one that definitely falls under the category: your mileage may, and probably will, vary.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Crystal Kaswell writes scorching hot new adult romance. When she isn’t writing, she is chain drinking tea, binge watching Law and Order, practicing yoga, or debating which fictional character would be the best in bed. She lives in Portland, OR with her husband.
