Erotic Romance Review: Call on Me by Roni Loren

Call on Me by Roni Loren (Loving on The Edge #7)


Synopsis from Goodreads

A Loving on the Edge novel perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Oakley Easton wants two things: to be a good mom to her daughter and to ditch her less than ideal night job. Hooking up with bad boy drummer Pike Ryland? Not on the agenda. She needs a promotion. Not sex, tattoos and rock ’n’ roll.
Pike isn’t about to let Ms. Prim and Proper shut him down so easily, especially when he stumbles upon Oakley’s sexy night job. She’s only playing a role on those late night calls with strangers, but when he gets her on the line, all bets are off. He won’t stop until that sultry voice is calling his name for real.
But as they move from anonymous fantasies in the dark to the flesh-on-hot-flesh reality of the bedroom, the risk of falling in love becomes all too high. And the safe, quiet world that Oakley’s worked so hard to create is about to be exposed to the one person who could ruin it all.

By now you know that I'm a fan of Miss Loren, and that I buy everything she writes pretty much as soon as it's released. Apart from the incredible chemistry between her characters, more often than not they are kind, level-headed people who are ready for their character growth and who manage it gracefully even if it's not always easy. Pike and Oakley are both such characters.

I met Pike in my first book by Roni (her serial Not Until You, first installment of which is free from all online retailers), and instantly liked him. He was charming, looked like a naughty surfer boy and had a gentle heart. He also adopted a previously abused dog from an animal shelter because he really wanted to help. An incredibly talented drummer, whose band is on the rise, he however feels like he outgrew the excitement of touring the country and having sex with strangers after each concert, and wants steady relationship or none at all.

Enter, Oakley! A single mother of a difficult but brilliant girl, she works very hard to make her baby daughter happy, and she is definitely not looking for one night stand. And for her, Pike is the embodiment of carefree, no strings attached fun. They are forced to work together on a charity project for kids, and sparks fly between these two. Pike desperately tries to prove to Oakley that he is worth taking a chance, but he can't admit even to himself the level of commitment he is ready for.

Add to this Oakley's own interesting past, the secrets she keeps, and the allure of her bright but so rigidly contained personality, and Pike just cannot resist the whole package. Oakley, in turn, can't keep lying to herself about her attraction to this talented drummer with unexpected layers.

This is a beautiful, caring, feel good book, it's also sexy as hell. I had slight issues with the ending, because I wanted a resolution for Oakley's possible new career, and it wasn't done, but overall, I loved this book, and I liked the bonus short story about Doctor Theo and an artist, Maggie, in the end. Very much recommended.

На текущий момент вы уже знаете, что я большая поклонница творчества Рони Лорен, и читаю, всё, что она пишет практически в день выпуска. Кроме невероятной алхимии влечения между её главными героями, они почти всегда люди добрые и щедры душевно, практичны и готовы к персональному росту, несмотря на трудности в его достижении. Пайк и Оакли - как раз такие герои.

Я встретила Пайка в первой мною прочитанной книге (части сериала Not Until You) от Рони, и зразу же прониклась к нему симпатией. Он полон шарма, выглядит как негодник сёрфер и добр. Чрезвычайно талантливый барабанщик группы на пути к славе, он подустал от туров и пересыпов на одну ночь с фанатками, и ищет чего-то более стабильного.

Встречайте Оакли! Мать-одиночка безумного талантливого, но очень сложного ребёнка, она не заинтересована  ни в чём кроме серьёзных отношений, и для неё  Пайк олицетворяет всё, от чего она отказалась: легкомысленное, сексуальное и безбашенное веселье.Они вынуждены работать вместе над благотворительным проектом для детей, и искры между ними так и сыпятся. Пайк отчаянно пытается доказать Оакли, что он не то, что она думает, но даже он не подозревает глубин своей влюблённости в эту полную секретов и граней женщину.

Красивая книга, добрая, интимная и поднимающая настроение. Концовка мне немного не понравилась, так как я ждала разрешения ситуации с возможной новой карьерой Оакли, и так её и не дождалась. Но всё это пустяки, книга замечательная, читать очень даже рекомендую!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
