Review: I Need You Tonight by Stina Lindenblatt

Old habits die hard. But in this sexy, heartwarming romance, a musician who’s addicted to the temptations of the road falls for a good girl who makes him want to clean up his act.
Mason Dell’s band, Pushing Limits, is a sensation, and he’s having a blast on their biggest tour yet. Then he gets a call from his best friend, who’s in the Navy, asking him to find out why his sister isn’t answering her phone. The dude once saved Mason’s life from a suicide attempt related to a gambling problem—so the two-and-a-half hour drive from L.A. to her small town is nothing.

What he finds is a sweet, successful boutique owner who’s too busy to notice when her phone dies. Nicole McCormick has nothing better to do than work. She’s bored of all the men she’s been dating: stable, career-oriented guys who are nothing like her destructive father. Mason’s is a breath of fresh bad-boy air. Their sexual connection is explosive, and with her shop undergoing renovations, Nicole even joins Pushing Limits on the road. But when Mason falls off the wagon, that’s one path she swore she’d never go down again.

While Nicole picks up her broken heart and heads home, Mason misses her like crazy. Although he wants to forge a future with her, he just doesn’t know how to leave the past behind. But for love, it’s time to learn.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

I Need You Tonight is the third book in the Pushing Limits series but can be read as a stand alone. Each book is about a different member of the band.

I am pretty sure I mentioned this when I wrote my thoughts on the second instalment in this series but it seems to get better as it goes. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed the second and third instalment and the first was my least favourite. I'm really glad I stuck it out. I read this book a while ago but due to some circumstances I was not able to get around to writing about it until now. My apologies if it shows in what I have to say.

The characters in this book were great. I adored Mason and Nicole and I loved the way their attraction towards each other grew. The simplicity of their conversations, the ice cream and movies were so relatable and endearing. Mason won me over easily with his desire to fix up Nicole's house and his contentment in her life away from the band and stardom.

Of course, life can't always stay simple and Mason eventually had to get back to his commitments to the band and brought Nicole into that circle with him. It was no surprise that things would inevitably become complicated and the budding relationship between the two would take a big hit. What is a good contemporary romance without a few bumps along the way to trip things up? It can't be all rainbows and unicorns all the time.

I found myself routing for these two characters from very early on and wanted them to find their happily ever after. Probably because I really enjoyed the characters I found myself flying through the pages and I finished quickly. This book fulfilled all of my romance needs. I can't wait to read the next instalment!
