Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning

THE SINNERS ARE BACK – A reissue of the first in a sizzling rock-star romance series from USA Today bestselling author Olivia Cunning.

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

Brian Sinclair has been grappling with a creative block-unable to compose music for months, until he makes love to uninhibited Myrna, and hears exquisite guitar riffs and finger-burning solos in his mind in the midst of their passionate embraces. He grabs a ballpoint pen and composes what will be blockbuster new songs, writing them all over her body and leading to all sorts of sex play...but how is he ever going to convince her that he wants more than just one tour?

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

Myrna is a college professor teaching human sexuality. She's good at her job even if her teaching methods aren't the norm. When she is attending a conference, she notices a group of men at the bar that aren't like all the nerdy teachers. What she doesn't realize is that they are the Sinners, the hottest rock group around. She's a huge fan and takes a chance by saying hello.

Brian is the band’s heart. He wants to be in that committed relationship in the worst way. He just keeps picking the wrong type of girl. When he meets Myrna, he is drunker than drunk, but he realizes how beautiful she is. Can he get her to notice him? Can Myrna hide from her abusive ex and just have fun with the lead guitarist of the Sinners?

I have no idea why it's taken me so long to start this series. When I first started reading heavily, rock books were my first picks. I can't believe I missed these. I feel like a reading failure, but I am happy I am finally meeting the guys. I never knew what I was missing.

I truly did love it. Couldn't put it down. It's sexy and funny. Some of the sex scenes had me fanning myself. I love each different personality of the Sinners and can't wait for more.

I first read this about 4 years ago and loved it (and went on to read all the books in the series that were available!) – and I was so happy to have an excuse to reread it. I think maybe it is even better than I had remembered – and yes, I am going to have to squeeze in reading the rest of the series over the summer.

At the beginning of any series there is an inevitable world building need, but it happens so naturally, that it is almost imperceivable. Yet, as the pages fly by, the reader has a background of knowledge which fills in the gaps as if they had been friends from the word go. Ms. Cunning is a very talented author, who gives enough detail to bring the scene to life, but leaves those tantalising moments where the imagination is left to enjoy...

Rock star romances are beset with drama, and this is no different, but it starts from a very different place, which makes the reader more confident of getting a wonderful outcome. Brian is such a sweetie, and his love of his muse is infinite. Myrna is a great mix of minx and academic. I was so happy to be back in their crazy world. The rest of the band are fascinating and knowing that each gets to tell their story too, made the rereading experience even better.

If you have never read this book, then you should remedy that immediately – if you have, then let me assure you that absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder, and this will be an excellent choice to read again.

Combining her love for romantic fiction and rock ‘n roll, Olivia Cunning writes erotic romance centered around rock musicians. Raised on hard rock music from the cradle, she attended her first Styx concert at age six and fell instantly in love with live music. She's been known to travel over a thousand miles just to see a favorite band in concert. As a teen, she discovered her second love, romantic fiction – first, voraciously reading steamy romance novels and then penning her own. Growing up as the daughter of a career soldier, she's lived all over the country and overseas. She currently lives in Nebraska, but never stays in one place too long.
