Hotel clerk Abby Medford has always enjoyed the quiet solitude of the night shift. The long, boring hours allow her time to study her law books.

I am slowly but surely working my way through Lauren Rowe’s entire backlist and enjoying every second! Though this wasn’t my favorite book of hers, it was definitely entertaining and steamy! It’s a rockstar romance and a lot of fun. Plus, it was narrated by the author who does an incredible job. Highly recommend listening to the audio!

This was a pretty fast paced and steamy story. There was a lot of sexiness while still enough story that I felt the connection between Abby and Lucas, both of which I liked. I was a big fan of how this author kept the book pretty light and fun and made it an enjoyable Hot with a capital H read. I actually have one of this authors books on my Kindle that I've never gotten around to reading but I'll definitely be bumping that up on my TBR now.

Absolutely one of the sexiest, smartest, most fun reads I've ever had. Abby and Lucas are the perfect combination of teasing and tawdry, giving us line after line of epic quotables, leading to page-burning passion and smoldering, unforgettable emotions. Angel Payne, USA Today Best Selling Author

OMG I love this book! Super hot, quite naughty, a bit raunchy with an amazing ending.
If you like it hot, you will want to grab this one. From the first few chapters, the author lights the flame, and holy smokes, it is burning hot!

But there is more to it than just spicy scenes. There is understanding between the characters, support, and plenty of humor. Then the heart pain kicks in and even a tear or too. UGHHHHH

And the ending... Oh God. I loved it so much. It took this book from a 4

Misadventures on the night shift by Lauren Rowe was so much more than the blurb promised. This was an erotic romance with some heart mixed in. Both characters have pasts that they still have held over their heads constantly. They just want to be free, but they can't seem to get there.

The gist of this story. Moody rockstar, Lucas Ford, stays in the hotel of a seemingly prude, Abby. Abby who has loved Lucas Ford like a proper fangirl since she was a teenager. This is a dream come true!

I say: say no more

This actually turned out to be so much more than the title and the blurb plays out to be...

And yet it's quirky, sexy and direct, it's bold in an approach towards the subject of sexual encounters and sexual problems, and then it's funny and entertaining...

it's also a second-chance love story you'll imagine and rewind in your mind just for the fun of it.

Misadventures on the Night Shift is one I’d slot onto my quick-fix, smutty guilty-pleasures shelf, and spiced up my Sunday morning quite nicely.

“I want to play you a song I wrote. A song about you. And then I want to show you my dick.”

Law-student-by-day and hotel-employee-by-night, Abby has loved rock-god Lucas Ford along with many others for years, and when he books into the hotel after a meltdown on stage, she finally gets to see the man who inadvertently starred in her younger
4.5 stars.
Sexy, smart and funny. Erotic romance that was pretty surprising at times.
Great addition to the "Misadventures" series and I personally haven't read another book quite like this one.
I wanted to think a little more about what I was going to write before I reviewed this one but I just decided to go for it and review this now while I am still processing things.

I scored a free hardback copy of Lauren Rowe's Misadventures on the Night Shift in my swag bag at an author group signing last year...a signing which allowed me to meet Ms. Rowe and have my freebie signed by her. Yay!! I had never read anything from this generous author before so I had no idea what to expect. I certainly didn't expect the level of naughtiness in this novel, especially with the fairly innocent cover art and titles in this series of standalones. Misadventures on the Night Shift is ...more

I need a vape. I don't smoke but after reading this book, I might just might try. I want to use stronger language than Goodreads allows to share my appreciation of this book. It starts off with a bang and only skyrockets from there.

I think I have found my favorite book couple after every #MisadventureSeries book I finish but I change my mind as soon as I start the next book. Lauren Rowe has crafted a story that allows the reader to live out a teenage fantasy. The book is fast paced with steam s

Holy shit, this book is hot!!! My e-reader was smoking from turning the pages so fast... ok, ok not literally smoking but damn!
Misadventures on the Night Shift is a story about what everyone thinks is a mousy, soon to be kindergarten teacher, but in a reality she's a straight up kinky, sex fiend. Abby was so different from any character I've ever read. She was bold, opinionated, and didn't back down to anyone... Even Rock Star Lucas Ford, or Lucas Fucking Ford as he liked to call himself.

..and yet, I am knocking out reviews left and right.. while "working from home" lol.

Misadventures on the Night Shift was a pretty good book. In it, you will meet Abby and Lucas. Now she just wants a nice relaxing shift at work and be able to squeeze in some reading/studying time. Then there's Lucas, who needs a secret night in because this bad boy is in trouble.. or maybe it just happens to follow h

I love Lauren Rowe writing. Eventhough her books usually take me on a little emotional roller coaster. This book has comedy, sexual tension, steamy scenes, and some heart break. It was well worth it and I can't wait to read her next book.

Abby was a bad girl in her past. Now she is living her life like her parents want. She hates the life she is living.

Lucas Ford is a rock and roll star who has never been really in love. Everyone uses him so he doesn't ever feel like someone can love him. He mee

I wasn't really expecting too much out of this series/book... but what was I thinking??! It's Lauren Rowe, and she is amazing! I've yet to listen to anything of hers that I haven't loved. I saw she writes another one of the books in this series, and I will definitely be getting to it ASAP. She's also a great narrator. This short book is a Rockstar Romance between Abby and Lucas. I love that the majority of this book is set in a hotel. Great characters...mixed with humor and A LOT of steaminess! ...more
Wow just wow! Stunner of a book! When I heard Lauren Rowe was writing for the multi-author Misadventures series, I needed this book now! I am a tried and true fan of Lauren dating back to her phenomenal "The Club" series, and this book, Misadventures on the Night Shift, firmly earned it's place on my "read before you die" shelf along with her other masterpieces!

If you’re looking for the next sexy and sinful rock-star romance, than look no further. Misadventures of the Night Shift has all the scorching hot romance you need.

Misadventures of the Night Shift follows the story of Abby and Lucas. Student during the day, Hotel Clerk at night. Abby is just going through the motions of life. While she enjoys the solitude of the night shift, she couldn’t be more bored with her major. Her life is anything but exciting. That is until Lucas Ford che

*** I received an early ARC from NetGalley for an honest return. This is a standalone book that is part of the Misadventure Series***

This was my first Lauren Rowe book and I ended up loving it. The chemistry between Abby and Lucas was HOT. Abby was leading a boring life when Lucas Ford, her teenage crush, walks into the hotel she works at. From there forward her nights are filled with fantasy while his are filled with inspiration. This book was filled with sexy scenes, lust, romance, heart break

This was pretty sexy and super cheesy in the best way. I just don’t think anything else from this series is going to be as good as Misadventures of a College Girl. Sigh.

Lucas Ford is a popular rockstar and he's going to a hotel in order to concentrate and write there his new music album. But he's in for a treat because he meets Asskicker , the hotel employee who's fiesty. He gets the idea and offers her to be his muse for the time he'll be there. A naughty proposition that seems twisty and insane and involves inevitable heartbreak since he knows that she's also a fan of his.

Okay , let me say first that at this point of my life, I'm probably over erot

I Lauren Rowe! From The Club to Countdown to Killing Kurtis, from Ball Peen Hammer to Captain. There is no book by this mega talented author I haven't loved and this followed suit!

This is the 1st book I read in the Misadventure series. They are all standalone books by different authors and it won't be the last.

Abby Medford works hard at her midnight shift at a posh hotel. She works the shift to afford law school, bills, and to steal a few hours study time during the dead hours. Expected to be

Favorite Quotes:

I lost my virginity to it… It would have been a fantastic memory for me if only he’d lasted past the first chorus.

For a long beat, Lucas brazenly looks me up and down like he’s deciding whether to purchase me from a pirate-bride auction.

“I knew he didn’t come onto you,” she whispers.“ But I just figured that’s because you’re you. I mean, no offense, but you look like you’re going to sell him Thin Mints.” “No offense taken. I love Thin Mints.”

I try to chuckle breezily but, surely,

I liked this better than Misadventures of a City Girl.

I was dying to know about her secret past and it was what I figured.

Her so called friend and coworker really got on my nerves. Abby was way too nice to her! All she did was give her backhand compliments.

I thought the idea that Lucas came up with for Abby to help him write music again was far fetched, but I guess it worked for the book and the ending.

I thought they had really good chemistry

Loved this book. So many romance novels have the same layout that eventually they get boring as you can predict what is coming. In this story it may have been the same but I was so wrapped up in the life of Abby I didn't really notice. This book was full of emotions which I really felt along with the heroine.
I highly recommend this book.
I was given this book by NetGalley and the publisher. This is my voluntary review.
