MISADVENTURES ON THE NIGHT SHIFT
Rowe adds a rousing sixth entry to the Misadventures series. The central characters are fully developed and express the vulnerability just underneath their tough exteriors. Readers will enjoy this intimate portrait, both sexual and emotional, of the protagonists’ relationship. In contrast, the supporting characters are not as vivid as the protagonists — they seem a bit flat. Please note that Rowe uses strong language throughout the novel and there is one M/F/M scene incorporated into the numerous erotic love scenes. Misadventures on the Night Shift will win readers over with its charming characters, sharp dialogue and fast pace.
Abby Medford uses her time on the graveyard shift as a hotel clerk to study for law school. When her teenage crush, rock god Lucas Ford, checks in, sparks fly between them. A routine food delivery to Lucas turns into an agreement to be his muse and sexual partner for his stay. The week passes by in an erotic haze for Abby and she must acknowledge that her former teenage fantasy romance has become the object of her love. Abby must decide if she will take a chance and confess her feelings, or leave the week and Lucas to the past. (WATERHOUSE PRESS, Nov., 280 pp., $19.99)
