Call on Me by Roni Loren
The new Loving on the Edge novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Nothing Between Us and Need You Tonight…
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.
Pike is a drummer of a band hesitant to help in a charity because of being around kids. Oakley, a single mom to an 11 year old daughter (Reagan), works two jobs one by day and the other by night. I’d love to hear Call on Me on Audible just to hear Oakley’s rasp-sexy voice. If you read Yours All Along you know what Oakley’s profession was as a teenager. Well those years are over and for that she’s not interested in dating a musician. But who can’t have a fling?! I fell in love with Regan’s spark first, then Oakley’s wit from her first encounter with Pike and finally Pike in his steadfast, won’t-take-no-for-an-answer antics. I didn’t want “Pikley”‘s story to end. I wanted their “scare” to be a positive and I want to see Pike as the great father I know he’ll be. There was depth, family, support, amusement, 900 operator calls, and musical love to be had throughout the whole novel. I love a sexy musician and not just Pike, but also Oakley and Rae have their musical gifts as well. I’ll call on this family for the win so far in this series! Give this a try and find your next book crush!! Rating: 5 stars
