Call On Me (Loving on the Edge, #8) by Roni Loren [Review + Giveaway]


 The new Loving on the Edge novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Nothing Between Us and Need You Tonight…

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.



5 Call On Me Stars

Call on Me is a standalone and is part of the Loving on the Edge series. I have read a few books in this series and I read them out of order. Call me crazy, but I like to skip around.  This is Pike’s story and I have to say, I REALLY REALLY REALLY loved it.

Oakley loves her job, but it doesn’t pay that much, so she has to get a second job as a sex operator, but wait it gets better, she’s a SINGLE MOM! You know I love my single mom books. Sigh, what a great Heroine.  She needs to pay the bills and she picks a job that she can work from home. I just love it. I really like Oakley. I found her very level-headed, strong, and confident.  She just knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to say it. Her daughter is her priority and she doesn’t want any flings.

Pike is a drummer for a band that is starting to take off.  He’s been in the previous books as a watcher and performer with his friends so he’s had threesomes, I didn’t read these parts, but I will go back now! He doesn’t want relationships and he **GASP** doesn’t likes kids. His friend volunteers him to help out with kids at a music program and he reluctantly obliges.  I liked Pike a lot. I think it’s because he’s a little bit of everything. He’s not a full Dom, but he’s okay with being kinky.  He just does what feels good. He’s also very sweet to Oakley, yet very alpha and male (yum!).

Oakley has to work with Pike on the charity project. I love Oakley and Pike’s relationship. It’s not insta-lust at first (as much as I like that), but there’s really cute banter. I like it when the Hero pursues the Heroine and everything is out in the open. Oakley doesn’t hide the fact she has a daughter and I like that there’s no big secret throughout the book. 

As Pike and Oakley get closer, both still need to work on personal issues. Oakley doesn’t want any man in her life. She can’t have her daughter get attach to someone who is going to leave the both of them and Oakley tries very hard to be a strong mom, but she also wants to feel desired and wanted. Pike has major mommy and daddy issues. He has a past and because of it, it’s hard for him to feel like he is good enough for anyone.

I liked that Pike pushed Oakley’s boundaries and it really kicked the kink factor up a notch. The steam was off the charts and perfect in my opinion.

What really worked for me was the flow of the book. I loved the beginning, middle and end. I thought each part had the perfect pace, plot and enough tension to keep me interested. I really liked the characters and I connected with them fully.  There was always something going on and I loved this book wasn’t just a single note. I will definitely be going back and will read the rest of the series ASAP.
