It’s a simple enough transaction.
Marisol needs the money, and I need a nice girl to parade in front of the cameras.
No feelings. No strings. No falling for anyone.
I’ve been clean for months, but my record company’s not satisfied. Apparently it isn’t enough to only kick a heroin addiction – they’re insisting that I find a girlfriend as well.
If I don’t, they pull Dirtshine’s massive record deal.
It’s supposed to show that I’ve changed my ways, that I’ve turned over a new leaf, all that rubbish. But I’ve had it with suit-wearing wankers telling me what I’m to do, so I’m on the verge of telling them to go f*ck themselves.
And then she shows up.
Marisol locks me out of my own concert by accident. She’s wearing a suit at a rock show, searching for her lost law school textbook, has no idea who I am…
…and for the first time in years, I’m hooked.
She’s smart, driven, and utterly gorgeous. The sort of girl who earnestly believes in following the rules and hates when others don’t.
I’m a huge rock star, recovering addict, and general f*ckup.
Our relationship is for show, and that’s all. But with every smile, every laugh, and every breathtaking glance at her curves, I want her more.
Two months is all we agreed to. But it’s never going to be enough.

As a fan of Roxie Noir I’ve come to expect a story that is both fun and serious, sweet and sexy. Never Enough met and exceeded expectations. Roxy Noir does a great job portraying a recovering addict in that she doesn’t gloss over the cravings and the ugly parts of addiction. As a result this book is a bit gritty at times but so worth it.
The characters, both main and secondary, and great. Marisol and Gavin play well off each other and I found myself at times reading Gavin’s parts in an English accent in my head. I love that they stay true to their core personalities while being fluid enough to learn and grow. The relationship between Gavin and his bandmates that Noir weaves is full of love and frustration. The closeness the original members share makes their bonds stronger, while Eddie seems to be included but not as close to the others which is typical with a new person in a group.
Once I started this book I could hardly put it down – often reading when I shouldn’t be or staying way too late/getting up early to read more. This book is a must read, especially if you like content with your steam. I can’t wait to read more of Roxie Noir’s books!
I received an ARC from the the author and am voluntarily giving an honest review.
