Call on Me (Loving on the Edge #8)
by Roni Loren

This book was hot. No questions about it. 
Sexy Drummer - check
Sexy talk- check
Sexy scenes- check check check!

Oakley Easton is a single mother to her high functioning autistic daughter Reagan. Years ago she used to be a singer but she left her career behind when she got pregnant. To make ends meet, Oakley takes a second job as a telephone sex operator.  This has made her jaded in regards to relationships. No man can stir any passion in her. She takes the phone calls at night while she does her daily chores like cleaning, laundry, cooking.  Everything changes when she meets the sexy drummer Pike Rylan. Worst of all he soon learns her secret!

Pike has a successful career and he has good friendships but his life hasn't always been that good. He carries baggage and the last thing on his mind is to fall in love like his friends have until he meets Oakley and Reagan. Little by little this sexy guy starts falling for the woman and his daughter. Instead of running away, he moves forward.

“Are you always this cocky?”
“No, it’s dialed down right now. I can get way worse.”
She stirred her drink. “Not. Possible.”
His lips spread into a menacing smile. “Challenge accepted.”


I have to admit I have only read one novella in this series. However, I don't think you need to read the other books to enjoy this one. If anything it made me want to go back and read the rest of the books. I'm guessing there is some BDSM theme since The Ranch seems to play a big part in this series. Not so much in this one.
Pike has some dominant characteristics but I wouldn't label him a Dom. He learned what he liked with Oakley and it work for them.
Oakley was a strong heroine. She wasn't going to mess up her daughter's life by bringing someone over whom she couldn't trust. She liked Pike and she tried to avoid him in the beginning. She had been burned before and I respected her for trying to put some distance between herself and the sexy drummer.
When Pike was trying to win Oakley, he won me. He was a great guy, hot, smart, tender, and had a dog. Best combination ever! I enjoyed his camaraderie with the rest of his friends.
After I finished reading Call on Me, I know I won't miss out on any other Roni Loren's books.

 “So I’m wooing you over to the dark side?”
She smiled. “Maybe. I don’t know if the formal stuff would be my thing. If you made me call you sir, I’d probably want to punch you in the throat.”
He laughed. “No worries. Supreme Master of the Universe would work just fine.”

Cliffhanger: No

4.5/5 Fangs
