Book Blurb

Five stunning guys, one hot woman, and a feverish romance...

For him, life is all music and no play...

When Brian Sinclair, lead songwriter and guitarist of the hottest metal band on the scene, loses his creative spark, it will take nights of downright sinful passion to release his pent-up genius...

She's the one to call the tune...

When sexy psychologist Myrna Evans goes on tour with the Sinners, every boy in the band tries to seduce her. But Brian is the only one she wants to get her hands on...

Then the two lovers' wildly shocking behavior sparks the whole band to new heights of glory... and sin...

Sexxy's Thoughts

Backstage Pass was a sexy and funny read. I liked reading about the band The Sinners and their relationship with one another; I loved the fact that they protected one another the way they did.

I enjoyed Olivia Cunning's world building…I mean how on target is she with the groupies, the roadies and just the every day life of a Rock band or any band for that matter on Tour. It made for a hysterical read…I must have snorted a million times while reading this book. And the fact that these Sinners were imperfect just added to my reading pleasure, but they sure where all sexier than anything.

Now Brian and Myrna, I loved them. I loved the fact the Ms. Cunning created this sexually aware “adult” woman. She wasn't afraid to explore her body or Brian's for that matter. I just loved the fact that she was older than Brian and she wasn't this wilting virgin OR this man had to teach her some things, hell she taught him a few things or two.

Now I get Brian, but seriously dude…you’re a rock star. How many sincere woman are you going to come across while on tour? I mean to fall for almost every one you “banged”…uh, no man! WTH are you thinking?! I did love that he had this sweetness about him that you more than likely wouldn't find in most rock stars. I seriously just wanted to hug him to my chest and stroke his hair.

What I didn't like was this almost type of mistrust between these two. All this sexing with one another and not recognizing that you're in love until the end of the book was not fun to read through. Especially with Myr….I know, I know about her past relationship with her ex-husband, but seriously you’re a college professor! Psychology professor at that! Stop it! Brian I can see holding out, but he was just as worst as Myrna…especially since he wore his heart on his sleeve “literally”. It made the relationship in my opinion not real...something that they weren't even trying to work on throughout the story.

Besides that issue…for me Backstage Pass was smart, well written and more than enjoyable to read. It made me want to be a sinner…*snorts* who am I kidding...I'm already a sinner. I just need a backstage pass *weg*
