Review: Joy Ride by Desiree Holt

Title: Joy Ride
Author: Desiree Holt
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Published Date: August 11th 2011
Cover Art By: Fiona Jayde and DZR Images

Emma, the good girl poster child, is running from a life she suddenly sees as gray and suffocating—a life where she’s successfully buried all her hopes and secret dreams. Until the night she wanders into Aftershock and is immediately drawn to the hot bass player. The electricity of his performance, the powerful music he coaxes from his guitar, the heavy vibration of each note reaches out to something deep inside her and wakes an Emma she didn’t even know existed.

Marc doesn’t much care for the groupies who hang around the band. He needs a woman he can create a future with that’s a counterpoint to the craziness of the rock music business. When he sees Emma for the first time, something inside him cracks wide open. Just one sizzling glance between them, and he’s sure he’s found the woman to complete his life.

But as the relationship grows, there’s a huge stumbling block: Emma won’t tell him her name. The sex is fabulous but he wants more….

Although Emma is finally finding her true self, her fear of everything falling apart builds a barrier she can’t seem to cross. Marc is taking her on the joy ride of her life, but will her own insecurities destroy everything?

Ms. Holt delivered another great story about a sexy-bass player…now I bet your wondering how this story could not exceed 3-stars. Well the truth is I was disappointed with Emma and her character, although well-written, she was weak and difficult to identify with – and personally I felt that Marc deserved better. This author is known for her creation of miraculous characters – so maybe it not fair to hold Emma to such high standards, but the bar has been set – and I’ve been spoiled.

I hope to see future stories featuring the other members of Lighting; maybe even a spin-off of the Deep Blue River members. Because I’m greedy when it comes to books by Desiree Holt.
