WARNING: Do not read this book unless you have your significant other available or a vibrator with A LOT of batteries!!


Oh my fu*k*ng gosh! How much sex can you get in one book??? Apparently a bloody lot!

I had been reading some really sweet romance novels lately and thought I would give my inner skank a break from the gushiness to have some sexy fun. That sure did happen – however, there was so much sex even my inner skank blushed.

As a whole I enjoyed the book, it was sexy as hell, Go
4 to 41/2 stars

I'll admit I started this book only with the intention to curb my curiosity about what I've read in recent reviews and comments. I've noticed people either love this book or they don't. I was prepared to fall among those readers who do not like this story because Iusually do not enjoy reading this type of erotica. I confess, my expectations were remarkably low. I neither expected nor was prepared for how fascinating, compelling, erotic, and, frankly, disturbing I foundBackstage Pa

5 stars – Erotic Contemporary Romance

I love all kinds of music, including rock, but I’ve never been much of a concert groupie or band fan girl. Although my sister would probably call me a big fat liar and eagerly remind me of my closet New Kids On The Block phase as a teen. *blushes and hides of embarrassment*

But I’ve definitely had my fair share of hot celeb obsessions, including Robert Pattinson (I stalked him on the Internet for months before and after Twilight came out!), Brad Pitt (I watche

This book should come with a vibrator attachment. Holy hell. Loved it.
Well. This book had its moments but it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Let’s see. The things that didn’t sit well with me:

Myrna. What a bitch. She’s been through a lot, I give her that, but then again that’s what shrinks are for. She keeps projecting her negative experiences to her “relationship” or however she wants to call it, with Brian. The “you’re a whore, Myrna” chant really got on my nerves from a certain point onwards. Myrna may be a human sexuality professor but she’s full of unresolved c

I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw all the wonderful 4 and 5 star reviews for this book as it's not my normal fare.

Let me tell you what to expect from this book:
*expect super hot, steamy, and naughty sex in the first few pages.
*expect a real plot, you heard me, A REAL PLOT
*expect a direct look into the lives of the Sinners
*expect more hot, steamy, naughty sex

2.75 stars.

Maybe if I read this a few years ago I might have enjoyed it more.

I like sex in my books but sometimes it can be overkill.

I think our reading preferences evolve over time and mine definitely have. Need something with more of a storyline in my books.

Not a bad read. Not sure if I will continue with the series.

During a conference Myrna Evans, college professor in human sexuality meets Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist. To further her research into groupies, Myrna joins Brian and his group on tour. But as Brian falls quickly for Myrna, she holds back because of her failed past in relationships.

Having read contemporary romances with the hero from all and every career imaginable, I had never before read the rock-god hero. I was intrigued. Alas, the intrigue didn't last long. It evaporated right abo

OK, I'm HOOKED. I am officially a Sinners groupie. Oh Brian and his magical fingers, he can pluck my strings anytime. Not only is he a musical genius, he is gorgeous, a one-woman man, and a hopeless romantic, what's not to love?! Of course, the book was dripping with sensuality, no pun intended, but it was a great story. Five young men achieving fame and fortune, and and having to deal with the overwhelming enormity of it all. No sense of normalcy, until Myrna comes into their lives. She falls f ...more

Oh, this book was so far up my alley, I don't even know where to begin. Olivia had me from the dedication, and she didn't let go. I loved Myrna from the moment I realized she recognizes the seething sexuality inherent in heavy metal music--something I think a lot of people don't get (and that's a shame, because it's an absolute goldmine). There might have been a couple of moments I wanted to smack her for her stubbornness, but that's only because I was madly in love with Brian and wanted to yell ...more

This book ROCKED!

First off I must say that if by chance that Olivia Cunning is reading this review, Thank You for writing such a fantastic story. I can hardly wait for the rest of this series to come out and will be reading Rock Hard as soon as it's released.

Second off Thank You Shawna, if you would not have been reading this book I would more than likely have missed out on this one.

This is by far the best Rock and Roll romance I've ever read. I absolutely adored everything about the hero Brian.
Rating: 4.5 stars

"Don't destroy him, Myrna."

I had no idea what to expect when first picking up Backstage Pass, other than the fact that most of my Goodreads friends absolutely love these hot rockers. As soon as it had my attention, I was completely hooked and could barely bring myself to put it down! I was definitely pleasantly surprised.

I can honestly say I fell in love with every single one of the band members and I can't seem to get enough of them! As for our main couple, I really came to
2.5 stars

Umm, well...I, uh,

Here's the bright side. I always have fun with the br girls, and this was an entertaining br. I'm glad I now know who the famous Sinners are. The best part was my friend Ada, (well, hopefully we're still friends, Lol) introduced me to a hot tattooed singer with awesome biceps and dimples. Yum, I got a little distracted watching videos of him,

You can tell I read a lot of romance and not much erotica, because when our heroine Myrna meets sexy rockstar Brian and all his sexily-named band-mates, my first innocent thought was, “Gee, I bet all those other guys are going to have their own stories later,” not “Woo hoo, I bet all those other guys are also going to get it on with Myrna!” As it turned out, the focus is on the primary relationship with Brian, though a couple of the other guys do come into the story, if you know what I mean and ...more
WOW - I think this is the most "sex-full" book I've read.

BP is Olivia Cunning's first book covering the Rock Band "Sinners". The band consist of the following members: Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist; Sedric Lionheart, lead singer; Trey Mills, rhythm guitarist; Eric Sticks, drummer; and Jace Seymour, bass.

5 stars for erotic - of the 378 pages, most are filled with hot-steamy sex scenes -- vanilla-bondage-ménage-anal-voyeurism-mild m/m- sex in public-oral-sex toys-and I'm sure I've left some out.

If you're looking for your next guilty pleasure, look no further!
Rock Stars + Professor of Human Sexuality + a bit of romance + a whole lot of sex = Do not attempt to read this book in public.

Let's get serious for a second... There is very little that is "serious" about this book. It is not a literary masterpiece; it is a seriously entertaining piece of erotica, so lets not get our panties in a twist. Sit back and enjoy it.

I'd say that the unofficial breakdown is:

Go into it like you'd go into a one night stand...don't expect anything more than some good and sexy times. Deep, meaningful, and lasting isn't in the cards. But it was fun while it lasted! Sed has me riled...I bet he's going to be lots of fun!

Backstage Pass is the first book in Olivia Cunning’s Sinners on Tour series. It was also my first Olivia Cunning read, my first “rock star” read, my first ‘slightly older woman/younger man’ read, and my first super naughty read! I lost a lot of first virginities here, for sure! And I’ll let you in on a little secret - I didn’t even review this book back when I read it because I was embarrassed to admit I had read such a super naughty book… and loved it!

3.5 stars. Second Read 06/12 with the SM girls
"Nnggnn," she groaned.

Nnggnn, indeed.

I keep wavering between a 3 and a 4 star rating. For erotica, it's pretty consistent with the amount of sexual scenarios, which I know did shock some people who thought this book was contemporary romance. Don't be fooled. There's going to be acts of voyeurism, light BDSM, threesomes, anal play, etc. packed into this book. It is a story about rock stars and their lifestyle. If you

The review is still rattling around in my head, but I have to get a few things out. Haha…

1. Brian and Myrna’s story never touched my heart, but I’m okay with that really. Nothing wrong with fun and sex! Lots & lots of sex! :) Brian was sweet and funny, but I had no feelings for Myrna. *shrugs* Well she did irritate me at the end with this--(view spoiler)

Love this book!!!! Talk about steamy!!! Loving me some Brian!!!

Just finished this book for a second time with my Smut Monday friends. I enjoyed it every bit as much the second time as the first. I do wish there was more of a storyline and not as much of the sex but I still enjoyed it. I love Brian he is one sexy bad boy and Myrna was great. They had a sweet love story. I will say this time around I have to agree with some of my smut Monday friends in that (view spoiler)
♡Karlyn P♡
A scorching hot erotica with a pretty good story too. I'll admit I skimmed over some of the sex scenes as not everything in this book is my 'thing', but overall this was a great romantic/erotica read with two wonderful lead characters that made me laugh so many times.

Brian really fit the mold of a rocker. He was more of a lover than a fighter kind of guy, and his charm and devotion to Myrna was hot. Although sometimes he was bit too 'beta' for my tastes (did he really say 'pwease'?) he did fit
NOTE : Just found Backstage Pass won both Best First Book & Best Long Erotic Romance at RomCon Reader's Crown 2011 !! Yay! You go Olivia! And Sinners Rock!!!
