Hotel clerk Abby Medford has always enjoyed the quiet solitude of the night shift. The long, boring hours allow her time to study her law books. But when bad-boy-rocker Lucas Ford checks into the penthouse suite one night and demands Abby personally deliver his room service request, her formerly quiet nights are quickly filled with Lucas’s erotic games.
But as Abby soon learns, if she thinks she can indulge her innermost desires with Lucas without giving him her heart, she’s dead wrong.
Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.
All kinds of fun and smexy!
***4 ‘Assasin’ Stars***
This book was an unexpected, yet absolutely pleasant surprise. It was all kinds of smexy (dear lord was it panty incinerating smexy), sweet, funny and filled with heart, but the path was took a few twists and turns that I even I couldn’t have thought up and yet, when everything was said and done, it was perfect for Abby and Lucas and was what they needed to go through in order to find their HEA.
I loved Lucas and Abby. Abby is a spitfire. She’s sassy, has a huge heart, is a little spastic and when she gets riled up has a way of blurting out truths that one can’t ignore. Her past isn’t all wine and roses and she’s working hard to keep herself on the straight and narrow and find herself. Lucas is all kinds of rock god smexy goodness, but due to certain circumstances isn’t finding much joy in that status lately. What I loved about Luke was that while he was alpha AF, and decadently wicked, had a golden heart and soul.
Abby and Lucas’ journey was hands down HOT, but intermingled with the searing sexual chemistry was an odd connection of sorts where they are both trying to find themselves again and through a slightly unconventional, but very intriguing situation, they give each other the much needed push in the right direction towards being the people they never knew they could be.
This is my first read by Lauren Rowe and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. The little twists in the journey kept me turning the pages, as did the smexyness. The pacing was good and writing engaging, and though there is a part of me that does wish that the 1st person POV had been dual instead of solo, I still enjoyed it a lot and am looking forward to reading more books by the author.

I have to say, this book took me by surprise. Of all the Misadventures books I’ve read so far, this one is this most erotic. Since I was pleasantly surprised by this, I’m returning the favor and not revealing too much. Its well written, no abuse or cheating, but it does have a few risqué scenes...you may need a fan for this one. The only negative was a personal preference of mine. I actually get why the author did it, though. I’ve never read Lauren Rowe before. I was impressed and left very curious if her other books are like this one.
This novella was all kinds of amazing!
So let’s talk about how much I loved Misadventures on the Night Shift by Lauren Rowe. This book was engrossing, it was unputdownable, and it was a book that I loved every single word of! This book owned me from start to finish. It owned me through every word, through every page, and through every heated and visceral moment that I got within it. What Lauren Rowe so exceptionally created in this book made me blush, made me feel it all with Lucas and Abby, and had me just basking in every single word that I got with them.
Lauren Rowe completely gave me it all in this book. She gave me a rock star romance that coupled music and heat and fire and a vibrancy that was practically tangible in this book. She gave me a story that took ahold of me in every way possible, and became something I NEEDED in my life. She created characters that were dynamic, enjoyable, real and relatable, yet every fantasy you need all in one. She created a book that blew me away at every turn, and I literally do not have enough words to describe how much I loved it and how much I enjoyed it.
Misadventures on the Night Shift follows Abby as she comes face to face with the living legend, Lucas Ford. He was her teenage heartthrob and crush, a rock star god who she can’t help but be star struck by, and now he’s got a proposition for her that she knows she should say no to, yet she can’t help but want to scream yes to. This book follows Abby and Lucas over their week in Penthouse A, as he tried to write the album of his life, as she tries to figure out if she can keep up in the game they’re playing, and as they both discover that what might’ve started as a little bit of heated fun, is so much more than they bargained for.
Lauren Rowe made Abby and Lucas’s characters so easy to love and connect to. They were both real and vibrant, and I loved that even thought this is a novella, I got so much development and story with both of their characters. I saw them grow and evolve and change. I got to be there with them through the highs and lows, through all the fire they shared, and through the moments that almost broke them. I got it all with them, and that is just part of what made me love and adore their characters so much!
This book was all kinds of fun, it was all kinds of colorful and vibrant, and it had this tangible heat and spark through every page of it that brought every word of what I was reading to life in the most exceptional way! Lauren Rowe’s writing was a complete delight, and this book has me all the more eager to read more of her books and to get more of her fabulous writing. I need more of her words in my life!
Misadventures on the Night Shift was a fun, enjoyable, and seriously heated read which delivered it all! This book was the perfect quick read that gave me two characters with an off the charts level of chemistry, a connection that just wouldn’t quit, and a story that I could not put down from start to finish. I loved every word of it, and I cannot recommend it enough!
This was a fanfreakingtastic book and you will love it! Trust. Me. Lucas and Abby will give you it all and then some, and you will be beyond satisfied with it all!
