Craving Talon by Zoey Derrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is Book 2 in the 69 Bottles Trilogy. DO NOT read this book WITHOUT reading Book One. Zoey Derrick also gives a very nice Warning page just in case you missed it...This is a MMF bisexual menage book and I LOVED it. I thoroughly enjoyed Book One but Book Two was even more sizzling hot!
This is the continuing story of 69 Bottles band lead singer Talon, manager Kyle and PR rep Addison as they are on tour with the band. They have developed a budding relationship in Book One and that further develops in this book but on so many higher levels. This is more than just a menage book where they devour one female (don't get me wrong....they totally devour Addison and it is HOT) but the relationships that they have which each other: Talon and Kyle, Kyle and Addison and Addison and Talon, all independently of each other. Kyle and Addison battle their demons of their shared past but in different ways. Addison has grown and moved on from her experience, while Kyle is still blood family and must learn to cope with his brother's death. Talon and Kyle have been friends for a long time since college days and it is awesome to watch their relationship blossom. (Not to mention their intimate scenes are intense!) Aside from these two sexy men, Addison must also face her growing unexpected fame as a singer, after an impromptu performance on stage duet with Talon. Is singing career what she wants? How will this affect her relationship with her men? How will this affect the band?
I absolutely loved this book and the series thus far. I love the character development and how all the characters interact. Although the story is based around the three main players-Addison, Talon and Kyle, the other band members and colleagues such as Cami and Tristan, play huge roles in their interactions with our little menage. While usually rocker romances are not my thing, this book focuses more on the characters and the "business" of the band, rather than the stereotypical "sex, drugs and rock and roll" fangirl stories. This realism drew me further into the story. It is one that every person can relate to, even if you hate rock and roll and like some other variety of music. Zoey Derrick is a truly gifted writer in her detail and storytelling. She definitely has a fan for life! <3
