 “Bad Boys” of Romance Giveaway Hop hosted by herding cats & burning soupRantings of a Reading Addict and author Blue Remy!

Bad boys of romance, we all love ’em, right? Oh hell, yeah. But I have a confession to make. I like the good boys too. The ones you take one look at (or read one chapter about) and know you’d be proud to introduce them to your mama.

Which brings me to my own heroes, the ones who fill the spaces in my mind and the pages of my stories. I have a few bad boys, but the thing about them is…they all tend to be good boys in the end.

Let’s look at my Speed heroes . (For those who don’t know, the Speed series revolves around a rock band made up of three brothers and their  indispensable band manager and friend). At heart, the brothers – Jamie, Jordan and Jonah – are good boys. They come from a decent family and have great respect and love for their grandmother. But these three found instant fame, becoming overnight sensations after posting their YouTube video on the net. Within a week, millions of people all over America wanted them. And once they’d recorded their first album they became international superstars.

And we all know international superstars get to pick and choose who they sleep with. They have hordes throwing themselves at their feet, begging for a piece of action, a touch, a kiss, a night… It’s pretty damn hard to refuse that kind of temptation. Could you?

Jonah Speed, the band’s sex-on-a-stick drummer, doesn’t try. He dives straight into temptation and sleeps with hundreds, possibly even thousands of women over  three years. Yeah, he’s bad – he doesn’t deny it. But he loves every second of it. Until it all blows up in his face. Until a scandal rocks his world, changing everything. And suddenly, the man who slept with a different woman every night gives it all up. The sex, the women, the temptation.

For six months he’s abstained, knowing it’s the right thing to do. He’s over the faceless minions and the meaningless sex. He’s happy with his self imposed restraint and has no intention of diving back into bed with the first woman who grabs his attention…until he meets Eve Andrews.

Rhythm Of The Night (Jonah Speed’s Book)

The Blurb

He rocks every woman’s world, but his heart beats only for her.

Speed, Book 3

Makeup artist Eve Andrews is an expert at blending into the background. Landing a job with the rock band Speed is the opportunity of a lifetime, and thankfully as close to the spotlight as she’ll ever get again—until the band’s sinfully sexy drummer turns his dazzling eyes on her.

After a scandal shook his world, Zachary Pace, a.k.a. “Jonah Speed”, has given up the one-night stands and easy lays. One look at Eve, and he senses his self-imposed abstinence is about to come to a screeching halt—but he’s confused. His grandmother foretold his destiny lies with a beautiful redhead, not a tiny, brown-haired pixie.

Under the heat of Zachary’s intense focus, Eve’s resistance melts away, but not the façade that hides her terrible secret. And when she accidentally catches a glimpse of his heart’s desire—his fated redhead—her instincts tell her to let him go…before he gets too close. Before he sees the real woman behind her mask, and her heart is left in the dust of his almost-certain retreat.

Warning: This is a Speed book, so you know there’s gonna be a small element of fantasy to it. And a big element of romance. Oh, yeah, and whole lot of sex. Sex hot enough to make you throb to the rhythm of a very sensual beat…

  3. In books, or in life? I always turn into a blithering idiot around Chris Murphy of Sloan (though he’s always very kind and patient)…


    • That’s if you’re talking rock stars…as for bad boys, I love Lucky from Eden Winters’ DIVERSION series, and Dante from Damon Suede’s HOT HEAD…

  4. My favorite Rock Stars are all from 80’s metal those were some bad boys :). Bon Jovi, Poison, Aerosmith, Kiss I could go on and on.

  5. Johnny from Linda Robertson’s Persephone Alcmedi series and Brian Sinclair from Olivia Cunning’s Backstage Pass (Sinners on Tour).

  6. Justin Timberlake… haha.
    I also like Matthew Bellamy from Muse.
    Mmmm… bad boys. Excuse me while I salivate. To pick just one bad boy is so very hard, but I will try! I enjoy Christian Grey (who wouldn’t? Am I right, ladies?). His compulsive need to control is scary and hot all at the same time. Another bad boy who has me slobbering all over myself is Travis from “Beautiful Disaster!” A man who makes a living by punching the shit out of another man!?!?! Hold me back! Thanks for the giveaway! It’s always a pleasure for me to participate in these, especially when the topic is so utterly delicious.

  11. I have a weird thing for Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins. I know he has no hair and everyone thinks I’m crazy for crushing on him, but it’s the sexy, whiny voice. I just melt ❤

    I also drool over Ne-Yo in his music video, Let Me Love You. He's sooo sexy ❤

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  12. Sorry to say I haven’t read a lot of books about bad boy rockers, hope to rectify that that someday soon. For now though the only bad boy rocker that immediately comes to mind is Exavier Kedmen from Mady Roth’s Loup Garou.

    He stuck out in my head as soon as you said rock star!


  13. Hi! I love Lora Leighs Nauti series. Shes got some sexy bad boys in them! 🙂 Thank you! Thank you for sharing and for being apart of such a great hop!
