Call on Me (A Loving on the Edge Novel)
by Roni Loren
Release Date: July 7, 2015
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.
I fell in love with Pike when I met in in Foster and Cela’s story (Not Until You: Loving on the Edge #4). He was such a character. So down to earth, caring and had such a laid back humorous attitude that it helped ease some of the tension in the story. He helped Foster get passed his issues in order to get the girl and to finally have his own story… I was pleased.
Meeting Oakley when he shows up to help with a charity project for a friend, was the beginning of his great story. He’s entranced with her strict librarian appearance and uses his flirtation humor to try and throw Oakley off balance but she’s not having it.
Oakley is a single mother, struggling to make ends meet for her daughter and works nights pretending to fulfill fantasies for strange men over the phone. So when she has the opportunity to head the project she’s all for it, but hesitates when she’s told she’ll be working along side the tattooed rocker that makes her body tingle.
Pike is smitten and sees Oakley as a challenge that ultimately leads to him truly getting to know Oakley and her daughter and before long, he’s incorporated himself into their lives. He shows just how sweet and non “rockstar” he really is. Becoming the protector, friend and lover she never expected, their relationship evolves quickly and intensely.
This is another great story in the series and I look forward to the next.
Roni wrote her first romance novel at age fifteen when she discovered writing about boys was way easier than actually talking to them. Since then, her flirting skills haven’t improved, but she likes to think her storytelling ability has. Though she’ll forever be a New Orleans girl at heart, she now lives in Dallas with her husband and son.
If she’s not working on her latest sexy story, you can find her reading, watching reality television, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to rockstars, er, rock concerts. Yeah, that’s it. She is the National Bestselling Author of The Loving on the Edge series from Berkley Heat. Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads | Amazon
