Misadventures on the Night Shift (Misadventures Series #5) by Lauren Rowe


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. But when bad-boy-rocker Lucas Ford checks into the penthouse suite one night and demands Abby personally deliver his room service request, her formerly quiet nights are quickly filled with Lucas’s erotic games.

But as Abby soon learns, if she thinks she can indulge her innermost desires with Lucas without giving him her heart, she’s dead wrong.


Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

I was so excited to read this book because I've heard such great things about the "Misadventures" series and I love a good rock star romance read, so I was thinking this book was perfect for me. I'm sorry to say it didn't turn out that way for me. I liked the beginning of the book until Danica started showing her true self. I hated how Abby took the insults from Danika like they were nothing and just brushed them off and even agreed with her to a point. Then there was the generous offer she was willing to give to Danica to help her out with her mother. To say I disliked Danica is an understatement. I enjoyed the back and forth banter between Lucas and Abby. There was definitely a lot of steam to this story, so it does not disappoint if you are looking for an erotic read. The title of Lucas's songs were perfect. I couldn't believe what Lucas, his friend and the friend's girlfriend agreed to do, but hey when it comes to this story to each his or her own. However, I expected this story to have more of a realistic feel to it and I didn't get it. It was very over the top and unbelievable and I'm not knocking it; it just wasn't for me. Even though it wasn't a story for me, its the perfect book for readers who love a good over the top rock star romance read.

4.5 Star review of Misadventures on the Night Shift (Misadventures #6) by Lauren Rowe Another fabulous addition to a series I am fast becoming addicted to. The variety of authors who are writing this series is amazing. Lauren Rowe is a new author to me and I have no idea why. This was a fun, quick, funny read and not to mention smoking hot. Abby Medford works the night shift which suits her down to the ground. Her life becomes complicated when rocker and bad boy Lucas Ford checks in. Not only is he devastatingly hot but he is insistent that Abby deliver his room service request. Will Abby and Lucas play out their fantasies without either of them getting hurt? Will Abby be able to stand the heat, or will she decide to run for the hills? Dare she risk becoming involved and the potential for Lucas to break her heart? Lucas and Abby simply put, rock together (pun intended). I thoroughly enjoyed this book and felt it was a great addition to the series.

I love a good rock star romance, and this one had the makings to be a little bit original, which it definitely was. It took a turn quite quickly, not going down the path I'd expected, but in a good way. As I said, definitely an original story. The sex scenes were quite spicy, and I liked just how honest Abby was. This was my first book by Lauren Rowe, but I am sure I'll be back to read more. The ending was also quite a good one. Totally felt the bit of if you love something, set it free. And if it loves you, it will come back, and their love totally worked that way. A sexy, quick read. I want to point out that while this is part of a series, each book in the series is completely different characters that have nothing to do with any other book. Not only that, but almost every single book is written by a different author, while there may be a few by the same author, but again, all standalones. Which works well for me, as some of the stories don't sound like ones I'd enjoy at all, so this way I won't feel bad about skipping those.

4.5 RED HOT STARS! Warning! This story is so hot, it might cause your reading device to spontaneously combust! The dirty and deviant rock star meets the naughty night clerk. Prepare for sparks to fly! As Abby and Lucas work through their arrangement, both of them grappling with past mistakes, they from a deep connection that neither one of them knows how to accept. I loved that these two took the scenic route to their happy ever after. This story was highly erotic while satisying the needs for all the feels as well.

This is the first book I've read by Lauren Rowe. I was drawn to her writing when she wrote bedtime stories in the KU Korner on facebook. She was able to draw me in and left me wanting more. I've loved the Misadventures books and I was thrilled to read this one. From the get go, I was drawn to the characters. The romance was HOT and Abby and Lucas got under my skin. I kept hoping for a different outcome for them and my heart broke for them as things played out. I was surprised that such a short story could have such an impact on me. I fell in love with the characters and the story and got all of the feels. It was a great read and I'd love to see more of Lucas and Abby sometime. I fell hard for them.

An unexpected meeting leads to a fun connection between two repressed souls! Lauren Rowe takes us on a sensual jaunt of finding oneself when the least likely people to meet and hook up actually make a go of a spur of the moment fling that brings more fulfillment than they were expecting out of their temporary arrangement. The characters have a feisty connection that makes you laugh and the heat they bring to the pages is exciting! Enjoyed their story! Hotel clerk Abby Medford enjoys working the night shift because it gives her several hours of downtime to study for her law degree, but she never expects the excitement she encounters late one night ... her teen crush, rocker Lucas Ford just walked in! Lucas is butting heads with his label and checks into the penthouse to get some much needed writing time in ... only problem is, he hasn't been able to write anything worthy of putting his name on for himself in a long, long time. A sassy hotel clerk catches his eye and her honesty is refreshing ... could a little sexy time with her be the key to unlocking the songs brewing in his mind?

Wow what an amazing story. This is the first book I’ve read from Lauren Rowe. Absolutely loved it. Could not put this book down. Had to see what Lucas would do next. Had to know if Abby would go along with what Lucas wanted. They make for one hot amazing couple. They bring out the best in each other. What an amazing connection they have. A must read.

This is the first time I have read a book by this author and I can’t wait to read more. Working on the night shift is known to have some interesting occurrences but nothing could have prepared Abby Medford for this one….Her favorite pop star, Lucas Ford, enters the hotel and is going to be staying for a short time to write his next album. Lucas had a bit of a melt down after his last concert and along with a sex tape of him going viral, things seem to be spinning out of control. Not to mention that he has had writers block for the past few years so trying to compose new material is posing to be a challenge. When Lucas meets Abby, the sparks begin to fly as she will not put up with his rock star attitude and promptly puts him in his place but that does not deter him from asking her to help him overcome his issues. The more time they spend together the closer they become and share their secrets. However, after the week in the hotel is up will Lucas just up and leave? Will Abby be able to deal with the aftermath of being with Lucas? Will these two be able to have a happily ever after? This is one story that has it all from drama to romance to two people growing to figure out what each one truly wants and the reader is left hoping that they will be able to find a way to be together. I volunteered to read an arc provided by Netgalley.

Whoa! That was one of the sexiest reads! Wow! This is the first time I have read this author and I will certainly be checking out her other work! Her sex scenes just about set my iPad on fire! The reader should be aware that there is a ménage scene, MFM. This is the sixth book in the Misadventures series, they are all standalones. This book is so much more than the sexy scenes. Don’t get me wrong those scenes are awesome, but there is a terrific story woven in. The story is about learning about yourself, about what you want in life, what’s important in life and a lot about love. There are funny scenes, touching scenes, very sexy scenes and then the scenes that my heart hurt for all those involved. I loved Abby, she was fierce and Lucas was delicious in all his rock star glory! If you want incredibly sexy read with a great story, then give this book a read!

Note: Do NOT read this one at work like I did. It's way too hot and spicy to handle at work. But you can't stop yourself from reading it either! Abby is working the night shift - hence the name - at a hotel when her favorite rock star comes in and needs a room. Yes he's famous but Abby won't put up with him acting horrible and entitled. So she tells him off. And gets Lucas's motor running and interest piqued. And this starts Abby's misadventures while working at the hotel. Her hot misadventures. Another AMAZING Lauren Rowe book!

Wow! What a hot and steamy read. I had no idea where this one was going to go when I started it and the story-line wasn't what I was expecting completely, but it was certainly entertaining. Abby and Lucas are from different worlds but when those worlds collide, watch out.
PennieM More than 1 year ago
This one was captivating right from the beginning! I found myself laughing and gasping as I was reading and turning the pages as quickly as I could. There was plenty of heat but also a great story to back it up. Two souls with their own demons ultimately find a way to bring peace to each other. However, the best part was the ending. This one will keep you guessing at how it is going to end up until you get to the end. I was very happy with this one and recommend it. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

I really wanted to like this rockstar romance, but in all honesty, I didn't find much romance or much to like about the characters. When Abby meets Lucas, she's snarky and quick to put him in his place, and I thought that she would be a character I could enjoy reading about. However, it doesn't take long before she starts coming across as more of a doormat than anything else and when her past issues are revealed, I found it hard to believe she would have so readily accepted Lucas' offer. Instead of romance, I found a girl who is face to face with her teenage crush and rockstar used to getting his way and willing to take full advantage of a situation. To sum it up, the more I read, the more I felt like I was reading a Pretty Woman knock-off without the chemistry or romance. In addition to that, there's the fact that the book went on for some time after the week was over, so by the time this pair did see each other again to get their happy ending, it was just too little, too late. I will add that the conclusion did have the potential for romance if it hadn't taken so long to get there, but that was blown by Lucas' comment about the many other women he's had while they were apart, which wouldn't have been nearly as bad if Abby hadn't been naked and in his arms at the time. Overall, I'd have to say that yes, the steamy scenes were quite vivid, but the story was a disappointment.

Stay up late to read This was a great read from a new to me author and another great addition to this wonderful standalone series of books in this misadventure series. Lauren Rowe did a great job with starting this story right off when rockstar Lucas Ford ends up at the hotel that Abby Medford works the night shift while she is going to law school and he is trying to hide out while he tries to write his final record with the the record label. What he realizes is that Abby helps him find his emotions and muse. But they also both find out that they may be falling each other. This is one of my favorite books so far,this was so interesting and fun you i wasn’t expecting this story.

Soo much hot, dirty sexy times with fun twist and turns of Lucas Ford & Abby Medford story. Their chemistry was instantly off the charts hot & I loved that even though they both are from different worlds, they start to discover that maybe they are not so different after all. Abby is a naughty naughty girl. She had me surprised with each chapter I read of how much she is sooo not who I thought she was Yes panties will combust & you will want to rock out as well as want to find out which hotel in real life you can have your own NightShift fun.

Misadventures on the Night Shift by Lauren Rowe centers around Abby Medford, who works the night shift at the Rockford Hotel while studying to be a lawyer. She has had a crush on rock star Lucas Ford since she was a teenager, but since he’s a rock star— so has everyone else. Not long after a sex tape of him leaks on the internet, he happens to check into the Rockford. During their first encounter, instead of being appropriately fan girly, she shows enough sass that she earns the nick name ‘ass-kicker’ from him. After another less than perfect encounter with Lucas, it seems all hope of her long-time fantasy living up to expectations are out the window. But Lucas redeems himself, in a way, and they reveal a variety of inner demons to each other. Misadventures on the Night Shift by Lauren Rowe deviated from the path I thought it would take multiple times. The hot, sexiness and eroticism was an on-going and well-done theme throughout the story, and layered well with the added drama that the characters created. If you are a fan of MFM themes then Misadventures on the Night Shift adds that in as well. Overall, I recommend Misadventures on the Night Shift by Lauren Rowe as a hot, entertaining, and sexy read that is fast and fun, with characters who, although flawed, you can absolutely root for. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review.

Lucas is a rock star that has writer’s block and needs to write his 4th and final album with a recording company that he is trying to get out from under. He wants the freedom to write what he wants, he no longer wants to write the songs he wrote when he was just starting out at 17 ... like the recording company wants him to. Abby is a part-time law student by day and hotel clerk by night. She has crushed on Lucas since she was a teenager and is stunned to come face to face with him one night at work. She reads him the riot act about smoking in public and he becomes entranced with her because she doesn’t back down from him. He has a proposition for her ... be his muse for 1 week and at the end of that week break up with him, so he can feel the emotions to write another great song. This book is HOT, HOT, HOT! There is a little bit of romance among all that steam. There are quite a few plot twists that make you wonder if there relationship will actually survive. Lucas and Abby’s relationship is far from normal right from beginning to end! I received an ARC copy courtesy of Waterhouse Press through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

Off the charts sexy, smoking hot scandalous, emotional thrill ride that keeps you reading all night long.... Abby Medford is sweet, sassy, sexy and working nights as a hotel clerk to pay for a law degree that she really doesn't want. Bad-boy-rocker Lucas Ford is smoking hot, arrogant, funny, surprisingly sweet and in creative hell chained to a record label that hates him. He also happens to be Abby's teenage wet dream come to life! Loved every moment of this thrilling romantic night shift adventure.

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 sound more like a llama with bronchitis. My Review: This book took me a bit outside of my comfort zone for a stretch but realigned to provide a sweet HEA. The premise was interesting and entertaining and the story between the incendiary sensual scenes and licentious musings was an intriguing and captivating tale laced with witty snark. But, oh my! These characters could make a porn-star blush and had superhuman stamina. If the book had included a product placement for vitamins it would have made the company buckets of cash as everyone would seek out the magical elixir promising this enviable level of supernatural endurance.

I have four words to describe this fantastic book - Sizzling...Addictive...Secretive...Sexcapades! Yes sass is what made this book and Abby's character. Sass from our sweet, innocent, girl scout looking Abby is what caught Lucas off guard. Sass is what unleashed Lucas' song writing mojo once and for all. It's all about the sass. Oh yes this BOOK is the perfect teenage rock star fantasy BROUGHT TO LIFE! Yet it's still so much more. Full of surprises and completely unique. As always Lauren gives us incredible writing plus hilarious, smart, witty banter. Characters that have so many facets - captivating, engaging and completely relatable and real. Lauren is absolutely brilliant and insanely creative Abby and Lucas' story doesn't stop at delivering one heck of a steamy fling. Their journey is comprised of passion, heartbreak, self discovery, healing and ultimately leads to one of the best written endings of all time. Absolutely brilliant! Gave me some good role playing ideas to boot! There are so many quotable lines. Gah! I made good use of bookmarks I tell you. I flipped through and re-read my favorites over and over because they're funny, shocking or sexy. So I am exercising great restraint by keeping these gems to myself. I pride myself on never writing spoilers and refuse to start now. They make me hostile. You can't re-read these utterly amazing lines like the 1st time in the context of the story. So I just hope everyone grabs this book to find out for themselves what I'm talking about because it is perfection. Thank you Lauren for another fabulous read. As always you go above and beyond delivering a truly entertaining story that is always impeccably written and unfolds spectacularly! I loved every word!

I have to say, this book took me by surprise. Of all the Misadventures books I’ve read so far, this one is this most erotic. Since I was pleasantly surprised by this, I’m returning the favor and not revealing too much. Its well written, no abuse or cheating, but it does have a few risqué scenes...you may need a fan for this one. The only negative was a personal preference of mine. I actually get why the author did it, though. I’ve never read Lauren Rowe before. I was impressed and left very curious if her other books are like this one.
