Review: Rock Me Tonight (Underground Encounters #3) by Lisa Carlisle

Lily Everett needs sex, but won’t consider a permanent relationship, because she harbors a secret she’s certain no one will understand. When she meets the singer of a rock band at an underground nightclub, she’s disarmed by his sensual voice and mischievous good looks. After an icy introduction, Lily warms up to Nico’s charms.

A computer geek by day, Nico dons a rock singer persona by night. He’s tired of women pursuing him just because he’s in a band—the sex may be handy, but he wants something more. He’s intrigued by Lily’s reticence.

Keeping her emotional distance proves difficult the more Lily uncovers the intelligent, considerate man hiding behind Nico’s bad-boy persona. Their encounters are hot-hot-hot, but Nico wants more from Lily than sex. When Lily lets down her guard and reveals her other side, Nico’s shock destroys their closeness and they both doubt they can overcome their differences.

I was interested in the “rock” singer story – I have friends in bands and well, their relationships never ended well. Legia, aka Lily meets the lead singer of a punk band one night in Boston. Instantly the sparks fly, yet Lily is unwilling and unable to enter into anything more than a sexual encounter with Leggy Bones (aka Nico).

I found it hard to appreciate Lily and her rather hot and cold personality and reaction to Nico. Yes, I understood her secret, but she was so unwilling to share even little bits that it took quite a while to warm up to her. Not so with Nico: even when she was taunting him about the band and potential groupies – he was intelligent, warm and quite good natured – despite her ice-cream headache inducing personality.

Fortunately, as Lily revealed more of herself, and started to ask questions, she became easier to empathize with, and her concerns seems less ‘overreaction’ and more actual. Yet Nico, despite some pretty normal reactions at first discovery of her secret, came around so well and quickly that he should have been whiplashed.

The one area that never failed to excite in this story was the sex – anywhere and everywhere, with the alternating POV between the characters giving very realistic reactions, even when it was boneless panting. Lisa Carlisle has penned a really good story here in this installment; I’m now going to search out the first two in the series.

I received an eBook from the publisher for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
