Review: Raw Need by Cherrie Lynn

A NEW-ish BOOK FROM CHERRIE LYNN....contemporary romance at its best.
What it’s about:
Zane Larson has done everything he set out to do: conquered past demons, saved lives through his music, and toured the world as the frontman for one of the most popular rock bands in the world. This life—and an escape through music—was supposed to be everything he’s ever wanted, but after meeting Rowan, Zane’s no longer sure…

Soon after her husband’s death, Rowan Dugas learned she was pregnant. With grief and uncertainty her only companions, Rowan was only able to find an escape through music; specifically Zane Larson’s hypnotic voice. But after meeting the sexy lead singer of her favorite band, Rowan can hardly believe he’s interested in her. But Zane also has a painful connection to her unborn child - Zane's brother is responsible for her husband's death.

Torn between the only family she has left, and a life with Zane unlike anything she’s dared to dream about, Rowan’s decision will change her fate forever. This new title from New York Timesbestselling author Cherrie Lynn is a heart wrenching, emotionally intense story that will leave readers breathless.


My thoughts:
Admittedly, this one's been on my reader for a while. Finally got a chance to sit down and read it. I've been a Cherrie Lynn fan for a long time but this has to be one of her best. Loved this one. The angst, the improbable situation (a pregnant widow heroine and the famous rockstar),and the poignant moments were so great. I had not read #1 in the series, but didn't have any trouble reading this as a stand alone. 
I enjoyed the delicacy that Zane handled Rowan as she copes with her husband's recent death and unexpected pregnancy. Yet, they find love in the midst of the sadness...and a lot of hotness as is a cornerstone for this author's novels. Cherrie Lynn doesn't disappoint. I was frustrated by Rowan's lack of standing up for herself, but this was great, actually, as it was on point for her character. This is not a criticism of the book. As the reader I wanted to push her into standing up for herself, but she didn't at first. Gah, it was awesome.
You gotta read this one. Nothing further to say.
