Review: In the Mood by Lynne Connolly & Sat. Read-a-thon update
Book one in the Nightstar series-
The sound of a saxophone drifting from a Chicago blues club sends Matt inside, hoping to sign the player for his recording studio. Instead he finds V. Passion drives them from that moment on, and Matt can’t get enough of her sweet body and generous spirit. But as a former drug addict who spectacularly crashed out of the rock band Murder City Ravens, he has a lot to prove.
V thinks she’s happy with her lot until she receives an offer to join one of the most innovative and exciting bands in the world. Joining Murder City Ravens could sever her from Matt forever. How can she join the band when she’s spending her nights with the man who nearly destroyed it?
Matt and V have decisions to make that might give each their life’s dream, but could split them apart. Which is more important—personal fulfillment or love? Is it possible to have both?
This could have been a rock band romance but it's not, its a romance that happens to have rock stars. The focus of the story through the whole book is on the amazing love that happens between V and Matt.
The chemistry is intense from the start to the finish of the book and the sex is hot, heavy and happens often(in some wild places). As I said however the focus is on the love, the romance, yes it's steamy, yes you may need to find your significant other a couple times during the book to take the edge off and yes you will probably have to change your panties after you read the book BUT you will also feel your heart go out to Matt and V, you will get that awwww moment you look for in a romance novel.
I liked this book quite a lot and as it is the first in a new series I know a lot of characters had to be introduced with a tease of back story for future books, so I let go my pet peeve about just leaving you hanging with backup characters. Still I think that we could have had a little more of the why things happen and a little more depth to the back story.
Overall a good read well worth the money, I give this book read roses.
