Claiming Addison (69 Bottles # 1)

By Zoey Derrick

BR 69 Bottles


For Addison Beltrand, PR rep for Bold International, Inc. climbing the corporate ladder is all that matters in life. Her hard work is finally rewarded with the promotion she’s worked her ass off to earn—but the gig comes at a price. She leaves in two days for a twelve-week tour with America’s hottest alternative rock band, 69 Bottles. 

Talon Carver, lead singer of 69 Bottles, has no problem with women–as long as they’re gone by morning. When Addison shakes up his world, it’s a huge problem—compounded by the fact that Addison’s not the only one he wants. 

Kyle Black, manager of 69 Bottles, has a secret. He and Addison are closer than she thinks, but telling her could keep her away. When Talon sets his sights on Addison, Kyle uses his secret to push her into Talon’s arms, only to discover she isn’t the only one he needs. 

Two men. One dilemma. 

Talon is wild, reckless and loves control. 

Kyle is calm, collected and loves passion. 

The perfect balance…or Addison’s ultimate undoing? 

Talon and Kyle push their boundaries and Addison’s, but can they throw their reservations to the wind and claim her together? 

Two men. One woman. A rock band. A tour bus. One Wild Ride…


I saw the amazing ratings CLAIMING ADDISON had on Amazon and Goodreads and thought I’d grab a copy.  Rockstars and threesomes with some M/M action thrown in?  Sounds like it could be a good read.  And it was good, up to a point.

My main issue with this story is Addison.  Don’t get me wrong, she’s a perfectly fine character.  However, this is a woman who, for the past several years, has been successfully working her way up the corporate ladder.  Her current assignment with 69 Bottles is an amazing opportunity, and if she can pull it off, it’ll be great for her career.  But in under 24 hours of her arrival, she’s allowing every member of the band to kiss and grope her before they go out on stage???  And then by day three or four she’s sleeping with two of them???  I find it hard to believe that a woman who was the ultimate professional would suddenly throw her professionalism out the window.  I also thought it was odd that her bosses know she’s sleeping with two members of the band, and they don’t care.

CLAIMING ADDISON is part of a series and is told in Addison’s, Talon’s and Kyle’s POVs.  The sex was hot and I liked the story well enough, even though I felt it moved a bit slowly.  While the book doesn’t really end on a cliffhanger, it does just end, because apparently this threesome’s story will be told over three books.  I assumed that each book would be a standalone, and I’m regretting that I didn’t research this series a little more before I started.  I just don’t think I have it in me to read about the same threesome over three books, not when I didn’t love the first book.
