Wanderlust is the story of a journalist and a rock star. Aubrey normally reviews restaurants but when one of her coworkers becomes sick, she must step in to do the interview with the famous rock band Wanderlust. The lead singer Lex isn't very thrilled with this change and forms a plan to get her to walk away from the article, but he ends up falling for her instead.
This wasn't really the book for me, I felt it lacked character development and had a very generic plot. I do think other peopl ...more
Audrey is a food reporter for a magazine and has been given the assignment to cover a story for another writer who is sick. She is to write an in-depth article on the popular band, Wanderlust.
Lex doesn't want her writing the story. His band is in trouble and the last thing they need is a reporter snooping around.
He tries to push her away, says and does things that will make her quit, including getting her in his bed. But having sex with her turned out to be the thing that kept hi ...more

Well let just start out by saying...imma need books for the rest of the band now. Get on it, Loren! Get on it! I'm totally not above bribing with pretty stickers. I'm really not. lol Goodness but Wanderlust was one helluva good time. Yeah. It's totally 5:46am. Not even gonna lie. I read all night. And the last 30 minutes of it with the phone plugged into the wall while I was reading. I was not putting this one down.
The quick of it is that while she us ...more
I’m the first to admit, I can be a little forgetful when it comes to books. I mean, I read so many that details sometimes just…slip my mind. And, in the case of Wanderlust, what slipped my mind was the synopsis. Which meant I went into this book blind. I remember clearly thinking, ‘I MUST rea ...more
Wanderlust was such a unique story from Roni Loren and with each book I read from her I grow more enamored with her storytelling. On paper the main characters in this book look like complete opposites; very different upbringings, very different places in life, and seemingly on very different paths, but somehow they are able to see past the facade they show the world and into each other's souls and in doing so the vulnerability comes through m ...more
Lex and Aubrey were wonderful characters. I loved them! I loved how Lex and Aubrey met, the sparks that fle ...more
Confession: until now, I'd never read one of Roni Loren's books. I KNOW. I should be ashamed. She's been on my list of authors to try, but I wanted to wait for the right, non-series book. (Or, you know, start from the beginning of a series...) When I saw the cover and read the blurb for Wanderlust, I knew this was the one. I couldn't have made a better choice. It's just not enough to say I LOVED this book. That doesn't even begin to scratch the s ...more
I'm a big fan of Roni Loren's Loving on the Edge series (also still waiting for a new Off the Clock book here....) and her standalone works are just as great. I hesitated before I requested this book on NG because I haven't read much rockstar romance and I thought I have outgrown my bad-boy rockstar mc phase................but apparently not. Not when Roni writes it, I guess?
The main thing that always reels me in about Roni's books is ...more

1 Rock Star + Roni Loren = FABULOUSLY HOT Rock star romance novel.
I was immediately drawn to Wanderlust because it was written by Roni Loren. I LOVE her books. But then I saw it was a rockstar romance….that just made it even better.
I LOVED this book. As always Roni gave us wonderful characters and an entertaining storyline. I have to say this was one of the bes ...more
This was a downright DELICIOUS read, full of scorching hot sex and witty and sexy banter with every turn of the page. Aubrey and Lex's chemistry on and off the stage was combustible! Aubrey was out of her element with this story she was stuck with, and Lex had NO PROBLEM making her feel on edge the entire time. But ...more
The heroine, Aubrey, works for a magazine in New Orleans as a food critic. The farthest thing from her interests are sweaty rock stars after a concert ...more
Aubrey Bordelon works as a restaurant critic, but when the magazine’s music reporter falls ill, she finds herself filling in and definitely outside her comfort zone among the screaming fans of Wanderlust.
Lex Logan loves his band, but they’re struggling right now. He’s struggling to write and the fighting among them is getting out of hand and tearing them ...more
Both Lex and Aubrey were carrying around some serious baggage, which left them slightly wounded. The scars gave them some depth, and sort of explained some of their behaviors. I thought the two had great chemistry, and Loren put them in some really fun situations. She also let them unload on each other, which is when we could really ...more
Wanderlust was a surprisingly dirty and sexy read and I really enjoyed both Lex and Aubrey. They start out antagonistic but their attraction is too strong to keep them apart for long. I enjoyed Lex's bad boy, rock star personality and man was he swoon worthy *fans face*.
I wasn't sure about Aubrey at first because she comes across as very uptight and judgmental but you soon learn why she no longer takes risks and her character quickly grew on me.
With chemistry that j ...more
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date July 19 2016

Rated 5 Stars
I loved everything about Wanderlust! It was just so much fun! A sexy rockstar hero and a good girl reporter were a great mix. This was one of those books I curled up with and didn't put down or sleep until I finished reading it. I haven't read a book by Roni Loren I haven't loved. She has a writing style that just works for me and she creates great characters. W...more
I have to admit that rockstar romances aren't always my favorite. The rockstar lifestyle tends to rub me the wrong way and so going into these type of romances is risky for me. However, if there was any author worth taking a risk for it's Roni Loren. She's been the one author who I don't mind venturing out of my safe zone for over and over and she never disappoints. I'm happy to report that Wanderlust fits in the "totally worth it" category.
This story is so much more than just a rockst ...more
Wanderlust by Roni Loren 4 out of 5 stars
I have read several Roni Loren books and have not been disappointed yet!
In this book, Aubrey is the journalist with a dark, secretive past, who falls in love with Lex, the lead singer and typical band bad boy of the group Wanderlust. Of course, Aubrey is given the assignment to interview the band and the story unravels from there. But eventually Aubrey's past secrets crash into Lex's own insecurities and threaten to tear them apart. But, ...more
Once more I wish GR had half stars.. alas I've wavered between rounding up and down for a bit- as always
My biggest issue with this is that it is so cliche. I mean it is packed full with all of them.
From duche-ex, upper-crust unsupportive parents, insta-everything to every other cliche- even the smut was cliche... it is all there. Literally.
Yet this is not a badly told story, and while I kept ticking every cliche out there off in my head as they were coming up, I also did actually enjoy ...more
