Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son.
If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rockstars, er, rock concerts. Yeah, that’s it. She is the National Bestselling Author of The Loving on the Edge series from Berkley Heat.
About the Book:
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Loving on the Edge series and Off the Clock, a story of sex, love, rock & roll, and a reporter who’s about to learn a new meaning for staying on top of her assignment…
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…

***REVIEW FROM LIZ***
Available: July 19, 2016
Type: Contemporary Romance
My copy: NetGalley
Wanderlust by Roni Loren gives us Aubrey and Lex. Two people who on the surface could not be any more different. Aubrey walks the straight and narrow and Lex does as he pleases, when he pleases. Thus begins the story of the good girl meets the notorious bad boy. Cue in sparks flying everywhere and the chemistry drips off the pages.
Aubrey Bordelon leads a very structured life. She has her goals and lives by her own enforced strict rules. Many years ago she had one night of rebellion and it turned into her worse nightmare. Now she strives to be the good girl everyone expects and avoids anything that could get her into bad situations. But is she missing too much of life this way?
Lex, the lead singer for the band Wanderlust, who is really taking off now, is the personification of the rocker bad boy. He enjoys all the perks with no regrets. Especially with the female fans. He makes no promises, but gives them exactly what they ask for. Win-win.
Until the day he brings one fan onto the stage in New Orleans and the sparks fly everywhere. No one is safe. Until Lex realizes Aubrey is the reporter sent to cover the band for an upcoming article. Lex does not want her getting to close and discovering the secrets they are trying to hide. But how to scare her off?
Maybe all she needs is one night in his bed. But he soon learns Aubrey is professional and takes her job very serious. Nothing will get in her way. Even the sexy lead singer who keeps getting under her skin. Lex on the other hand believes he can get her out of his mind after one night. But will one night be enough?
But he is not willing to promise more. As a rock star, he is never in one place long. He is not built for the long term. Right now is enough for him. On the other hand, Aubree knows she must keep her heart well-guarded. Lex is not the staying kind. Can she let go enough to just enjoy the right now?
I really enjoyed the back and forth between Aubree and Lex. Unlike all the other woman in his life, she did not fall to his feet and offer him everything he wanted. She stood her ground and held firm. But how long can she keep this up when they both know exactly what they want…each other.
A great, sexy summer read, with great characters that pull you right in. Add in some outside drama on both sides and you get one interesting read.
Wanderlust by Roni Loren was a 4-stars read for me!
