All Night Long (Black Halo #1) by Madelynne Ellis

One night of rampant passion with a rock star, that’s all it’s supposed to be. Ginny Walters isn’t looking for love, only some sexy fun with an amazingly hot guy, that is, until she hooks up with Black Halo’s lead guitarist, Ash Gore, on the night the band implodes. When vocalist Xane walks off stage bringing the gig to a premature end, Ash and the guys find themselves unable to reach their hotel due to the presence of an irate mob. Luckily, Ginny offers them the use of her room for the night.

Ginny does her best to be a good hostess. However, it’s not long before she discovers a side to womanizing, bad boy, Ash that she never imagined. Beneath his hard rock image, is a man so hung up on the possibility of being hurt by love that he’s unwilling to risk becoming emotionally involved. How can she convince him that the bond between them is worth exploring, given that she’s not sure dating a rock star is terribly bright idea?

Ash can’t seem to get Ginny out of his head. She’s totally unlike the groupies he normally beds; women who love to fan his ego, but ultimately leave him dismally unsatisfied. Ginny sees through all his bullshit and the media hype to the scarred man beneath. Given that instinctive understanding, does he really want to say goodbye forever coming daybreak?

Maybe it’s time they both gave love another chance.

Overall Rating:  3.75 Rockin’ ★★★☆

"He didn't get emotionally attached.  He didn't need that kind of baggage, much preferring to remain a free agent, not beholden to anyone else's expectations, and luckily for him there was always at least one willing girl at each venue - frequently more - willing to show him a good time."

"She was right.  It was more than that, there was a connection, and he did feel it as ardently as she did."

Black Halo Book 1, All Night Long is a book about taking chances and taking what life has to offer.  This was a great story with a hot and steamy Ash Gore and an equally vivacious vixon, Ginny.  Consumed with passion and fearless want, the couple are thrust together by a chance meeting which shuttles them into a tumultuous relationship that caught them both off guard.  The characters were well developed and I felt their desires and needs right along with them.  

Ash Gore, the lead guitarists of the Black Halo band is a womanizer, who was heartbroken years ago and never wanted to take the chance of being hurt ever again.  He liked to play around without consequences.  Although a one time tryst leads to more than a one night stand and he can't seem to get enough of one Ginny Walters.

Ginny Walters, a nymphomaniac in her own right, was longing for a chance encounter with any "Rock Star".  Little does she know that everything is about to change for her and the way she views relationships.  

Will they take a chance on love and putting themselves out there again, or will they succumb to the desires of the heart, body and soul?  I recommend that you read the book to learn about their story.  I really enjoyed the feelings this book provoked in me.  It took me on a journey of sensual, sexual need and want, as well as delivered a great plot.  Job well done, Madelynne Ellis!  Grēta
