Never Enough (Dirtshine #1) by Roxie Noir
Publication date: February 21st 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance

ds1.jpgIt’s a simple enough transaction.
Marisol needs the money, and I need a nice girl to parade in front of the cameras.
No feelings. No strings. No falling for anyone.

I’ve been clean for months, but my record company’s not satisfied. Apparently it’s not enough to only kick a heroin addiction – they’re insisting that I find a girlfriend as well.

If I don’t, they pull Dirtshine’s massive record deal.

It’s supposed to show I’ve changed my ways, that I’ve turned over a new leaf, all that rubbish. But I’ve had it with wankers in suits sitting in their corner offices. I’m on the verge of telling them to go f*ck themselves.

And then she shows up.

Marisol locks me out of my own concert by accident. She’s wearing a suit at a rock show, searching for her lost law school textbook, has no idea who I am…

…and for the first time in years, I’m hooked.

She’s smart, driven, and utterly gorgeous. The sort of girl who earnestly believes in following the rules and hates when others don’t.

I’m a huge rock star, recovering addict, and general f*ckup.

Our relationship is for show, and that’s all. But with every smile, every laugh, and every breathtaking glance at her curves, I want her more.

Two months is all we agreed to. But it’s never going to be enough.

Always You (Dirtshine #2) by Roxie Noir
Publication date: September 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance

ds2.jpgThis could ruin everything.

I was born broken, with a past full of ugly secrets and a brother doing life in prison.

Not that you’d know it if you read the tabloids. According to them I’m the rock-solid guitarist for the biggest band in the world. I’m the dependable one. The steady one. The anchor.

They don’t know the truth. No one knows who I am underneath, once the music is over and the lights are off.

No one but Darcy.

She’s my best friend. She’s my f*cking savior, my light in the dark, beautiful as hell and talented as f*ck and every bit as broken as me.

And I f*cking yearn for her. I have for years. I see the way she looks at me, what’s behind her eyes.

I know what she thinks about alone, in the dark, because how could I not know.

It’s getting worse. Every second, every heartbeat, every moment we spend together and every secret we share makes me want her more. Even though I know that one kiss could ruin everything we have, I need her.

But to get her? I’ll risk everything I’ve got.

Always You is a completely standalone, full-length novel that’s Book Two of the Dirtshine series.

Ever After (Dirtshine #3) by Roxie Noir
Publication date: January 9th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance

ds3.jpgOnce upon a time, a girl saved my life.

I was piss-drunk, high as a kite, and about to jump from a bridge.

She stopped me. I told her to fuck off.

Exactly how all great love stories start.

A year later, I met her again. Sober this time, after yet another stint in rehab.

She’s still pretty, still a spitfire, still lights up a room when she walks in.

And she doesn’t realize I’m the guy from the bridge.

Frankie doesn’t know anything about me or my past. She doesn’t know I’m a former rock star or an ex-junkie.

She doesn’t know that two years ago, someone died because of me.

She doesn’t need to know. She’s got problems of her own, and they’re what keep her coming back to see me time and again, even when we both know she shouldn’t.

I should be staying far, far away from this girl, but it’s like telling water to flow uphill. Can’t be done.

Frankie and I may be going down in flames, but we’ll be going down together.

review

Rock star romances.  I love them.  This series was no exception.  In fact, these books were so much more than I was expecting.

There was something so emotional, so grounded and gritty in the telling of these tales, that it was impossible not to get drawn into the drama.  Impossible not to root for each couple to overcome their challenges.  Impossible not to devour each one.

And although the addiction and the impact of that on the people involved is a theme, it never felt sensationalised.  It always felt essential, if uncomfortable.

Ultimately, this is a wonderful series.  Some of the behaviours described could be triggers, so please bear that in mind.  But the writer has created characters with depth and emotion, and I enjoyed every second of reading about them.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

About the author

I love writing sexy, alpha men and the headstrong women they fall for.

My weaknesses include: beards, whiskey, nice abs with treasure trails, sarcasm, cats, prowess in the kitchen, prowess in the bedroom, forearm tattoos, and gummi bears.
