This is the ideal beach read! You are going to fall in love with Lex and Aubrey, I know I did. It had the perfect mix of everything I love in a story! I highly recommend Wanderlust. :-)
Wanderlust by Roni Loren
Restaurant critic Aubrey Bordelon is never at a loss for words to describe her meals in the fancy restaurants of New Orleans. But after her magazine’s high-profile music reporter falls ill, she finds herself out of her element and in a sea of screaming fans awaiting Wanderlust’s lead singer, Lex Logan. The sound of his voice gives her goosebumps, and the stage presence of the hard-bodied rock star takes her breath away. So when he pulls her onstage for a sexy stunt, she knows she’s in real trouble.
Lex doesn’t want to pretend that the sparks on stage between him and Aubrey never happened, but it certainly makes the fact that she’s writing a story on his band all the more dangerous. The last thing he needs is some nosy reporter revealing their problems to the world. But the sexy Southern belle doesn’t give up easily, and soon he’s wondering if the best way to chase her off the story is to coax her into his bed…
5 out of 5 stars
This was so awesome! A great foundation was laid right from the beginning. I couldn't put it down! I pretty much blew of two days because I couldn't stop reading. Excellent story with likable characters. Really entertaining with a good mix of drama, emotion and heat! It had such a great build too, I was so drawn in as all the little details emerged, it just made for a really fantastic read.
Lex and Aubrey were wonderful characters. I loved them! I loved how Lex and Aubrey met, the sparks that flew, and the amazing chemistry they had together. They had so much playful animosity and verbal sparring happening making it fun to read. There was a lot of sexual tension between the two, bring on so much anticipation of what was to come and a bit of angst as well. I loved the build to Lex and Aubrey’s relationship, it was all laid out really well. There is a really nice amount of heat to their relationship and it's super hot. The author knows how to write a sexy scene for sure. I thought it was really just the right amount in the story.
There was a nice amount of conflict and emotion mixed in as well keeping me turning the page. There is heartache and tragedy and drama but mixed in were so many entertaining moments, I thought it had a nice mix of everything.
The writing was excellent! I was pulled in right from the beginning. I loved all the details that were laid out and thought there was perfect character development with real depth. I thought the secondary characters were well written, even the ones that aggravated me. It was all woven together really well and everything flowed nicely. The guys in the band were great and I liked the relationship they had with one another. I would love it if there were more stories with them because hello sexy rock stars!
This was a well rounded, solid story that I totally enjoyed from beginning to end. It was a pretty quick read (or maybe that's just because I couldn't put it down). It doesn't get better than well written, interesting characters, an engaging storyline, and an fantastic build that has you hooked the whole time. Incredible read!
This was my second Roni Loren book and I am so thoroughly impressed. She's a heck of story teller! I can’t wait to read more from her.
