Nikki’s the flamboyant rhythm guitarist of the hard rock band Oblivion. He’s a sexy rock star man-whore who’s accustomed to a life of music, partying and a constant stream of girls that are ready, willing and able!
Trixie’s a feisty party girl who likes to have fun. She makes the most of her single lifestyle and happy-go-lucky attitude. But she’s also a hard-nosed business woman who knows what she wants and goes out and gets it. She lives her life by the motto ‘Work hard. Play hard’.
Neither of them ‘do relationships’. But when their frequent hook-ups start to develop into something more they realize that the connection and pull between them is undeniable. The prospect of wanting more than just mind-blowing sex from each other is a total shock to both of them and it hits them like a bolt from the blue.
Can they change their partying ways and give in to the irresistible chemistry that sizzles between them? Do they even want to? And will their past catch up with them to prevent them from giving the whole relationship thing a proper try?
Warning: This story is a rock star erotic romance. It contains hot rock stars, sizzling sexual encounters and language that you would expect from heavy rock musicians used to a life of sex, booze and rock and roll.
Bolt From The Blue contains graphic sex scenes and is strictly 18+ only.
This novel is Book 2 in the ‘Oblivion On Tour’ series. Each book in the series follows a different band member and their quests for love. Bolt From The Blue can be read as a stand-alone, but if you plan on reading the entire series, it would be best to read Heaven Sent (Book 1) first.
Rock stars and the women who love them are one of my favorite themes in books these days. Meaning: I glom on to almost anything with this theme and a good blurb because I just can’t get enough of them. As a result, I’ve read a lot of books with this theme; some have done it really well -others fall short of the mark. In this case, this one fell a little short for me. I don’t know if it was the writing style (I felt like I was being TOLD a story, as opposed to feeling like i was LIVING it), the lack of connection I felt to the characters, or a combination thereof, but I just didn’t love this book like I wanted to.
Let’s start with the characters. I just never bought into their story. There was very little build up to it; they met in a bar and – bam! They’re together – in a strictly, no-strings-attached kind of way because neither one believes in relationships. But with the slightest hint that they might be doing it with someone else and they feel betrayed – kind of like they were in a relationship and were cheated on. Personally, I would’ve liked to have seen more of a build up to their being together. Maybe then, I would’ve bought into their feelings of betrayal. Worse than that, I didn’t feel a spark between them. There was very little chemistry between them, which made me disengage from their story.
Then there’s the story. More drama seemed to happen with the other couple in the book than Nikki and Trixie, so they kind of got upstaged by them. And although some of their reactions to a situation in the beginning of the book seemed a little extreme to me, I still found them a little more interesting than Nikki and Trixie, though not enough to wow me with this book.
So I felt like the story had a lot of potential, it just didn’t meet the grade for me.
