This was a nice, quick, hot read. Liked the main characters, Gabe and Melanie.... not sure if their story continues in another book.

4.5 stars. I LOVED the steam factor (HOT!!!!) but I especially LOVED the H/h. Try Me was great steamy erotica novella with a rock-star and a good girl.

The Story
Melanie doesn't get the appeal of rock-stars, tattoos, piercings, and all that 'freakish' behavior, but her BFF Nikki is obsessed with it. So when her friend drags her back stage at a Sole Regret concert, only to abandon her when she hooks up with the lead singer, Melanie tries to quietly sit and wait for her friend to return. But when

I had a lovely review for you all. Then THIS happened when I hit preview.


Okay, so there's no way to prove that my review was actually lovely, but I'm going to say that it was because you can't prove otherwise.

There's NO way in hell I'm typing it out again. Sorry. Let's see if I can summarize in a couple of paragraphs what took me about 45 minutes to write. Sigh. At least you get to see the miracle of a short review from me...

3.5 stars.

What else can i say except; hot, sweaty, smexing with a rock god drummer who also happens to have a brain and invents sex toys for women? CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!!!! Wait... did i mention the tattoos?? PHWOAR!!!

I freakin' LOVED this little story and while i'm not the biggest fan of HFN (Happy For Now) endings, i'm glad that Ms Cunning is going to revisit Force in the sixth book of this series!!


You know what was wrong with this book?
It ended. :(
Just like that. Oooooh the agooooony!!!! Why? WHY??? Why such a little amount of pages? *sob*


The little bite I did get,thou? M-mmm-mmm! Sweet, short and very,VERY sexy. :)

WOW! This first book in the One Night with Sole Regret series is a fun, very sexy story. I love Gabe and his geeky mind, and he sure knew how to make good use of it in the bedroom! Totally hot story! Short, but HOT!!!

I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series!!

WOW! Olivia Cunning does it again for me and it's hard to believe that she can make a short story grab me this hard. I absolutely LOVE IT! This book brought back my teenage fantasy about meeting band members, LOL and there is not a thing wrong with that.

Both the hero Gabriel, AKA Force and the heroine Melanie were really great characters. I love how they met and the awesome chemistry they shared.

Just meh.
A lot of boring sex and not much of a story.
He's taller then her, over 6ft, but when he hugged her naked, his nipple piercing rubbed her nipple, while his cock poked at her stomach. Where are her tits? On her neck?
This book was just... What ever.

My number 20 better be a lucky number, Alex ;-P.

I'm off to read it.
3 Stars - steaming hot little shorty about a drummer and a beautiful accountant - perhaps for life?

An erotic short story of 85 pages, which is quite okay for a short while with a rock band full of good-looking, tattooed, horny guys, girls for the night and a little naughtiness and heat after the gig.

I may be hard to just give this little cute story 3 stars!? - Because I was entertained and I smiled a few times when I read about this drummer and his ambition to make it really good for the woman

Hella sexy hot!!! That's what this little novella was. I picked this up as a freebie from Amazon and got a hot story. This is about Melanie meeting Gabe backstage after a "Sole Regret" concert while her friend Nikki goes off to hopefully score and sleep with the lead singer Shade. Melanie admits to Gabe that she doesn't care for the band that much only to find out later that Gabe is the drummer of the band. By this point they have already gotten to know each other and have formed an instant ...more

I loved this book. I have absolutely no complaints, it was perfect.

Olivia Cunning as created another band that I can't wait to read about and get to know better.

Gabe is a perfect combination of sweet and bad boy. Melanie was interesting with her tattoo phobia. She was also a good friend for going on a last minute road trip to see a band she's not even a fan of. I loved them together as a couple. I can't wait to see more of them in future books.

I'm extremely intrigued by this new series and I

Finally had a chance to finish this! I really liked it more than I thought I would. Yes, it was short, but it was HOT and a little kinky! Still wiping the steam off my glasses!

It was a simple story of two girls fan-girling over a band and getting access. Melanie was a reluctant participant. She had fears of tattooed and pierce men from scary teenage experience, and wanted nothing to do with a band full of them. She lowers her guard when a beautiful man that seems quite normal to her: baseball

If you're looking for a short (no pun intended), fun and OH SO HOT book, this one is for you!
Hell, you'll be left craving for more and go running off to read the next one in the series (yep, i did that).

So back with the story, Sole Regret is the name of a rock band.

And and there we have the 5 sexy rock gods, Owen aka Tags, Kelly aka Cuffs, Gabe aka Force, Adam and the main vocalist Jacob aka Shade.

Melanie's friend drags her to another concert by the group, Sole Regret, in the hopes that she can bed one of the band members, Shade. At the after party, Shade and her friend, Nikki, want Melanie to join them in a threesome but she blows Shade off. That really catches another of the band members attention.

The main problems with all shorts is that, well, they are too short and this is no exception. This series seems like it will be very similar to her other series, Sinners on Tour, which has a

This book is everything I have come to expect from Olivia Cunning. My ONLY complaint is the length. I would have loved to get to know Gabe "Force" Banner and Melanie, and explore their relationship.
Try Me has everything including delicious rock stars. It's sexy, funny, and addicting.

Hot rock stars? Check. Tats? Check. Sexy piercings? Check. A panty-melting smile? Check. We fell in love with Ms. Cunning Sinners on Tour and we finally have a new book by her again. But oh the tease! Yes, this is a short story. And this is a completely different band. But do you see me complaining? Well, maybe just the fact that I wanted more, more, more!

Gabe, aka Force, is the drummer of Sole Regret. And sometimes he is just too tired to deal with the
If there is one thing I can count on from Olivia Cunning it's lots of hot, dirty, rock star sex! She definitely does not disappoint!

We are introduced to the band, Sole Regret, in this book. They are tattooed, pierced, and deliciously wicked-everything that Melanie is against! But, her best friend is on a mission to meet the lead singer, so she finds herself backstage with people she considers freaks. She eventually finds one "normal looking" guy to talk to.......but, just how "normal" is he?

When I hear one of my favorite erotica author, Olivia Cunning just write a new story featuring rock star, I'm so happy!

You can't go wrong with Olivia Cunning. since she always deliver the best erotic story feature rock stars.

I discovered Olivia Cunning before I started blogging, so this is my first official review for one of her books. I'm so excited! Olivia is my favorite Erotic Author. She always comes up with the sexiest guys and most inventive and original "ideas". She actually writes a story too. It's not all sex. Her characters have substance. And what could be better than reading about sex? ROCK STAR SEX! This is definitely OC's specialty. Ok, I'm done with my fangirl spiel...on to the story!

Loved it! Yes, it's a novella and it's focuses on One night (with Sole Regrets) but I absolutely adored it. They were wonderful together and I loved how Melanie didn't know who he was at first.

"Nice to meet you, Gabe. How did a normal-looking guy like you end up backstage with all these, erm, interesting folks?"

I want more of Gabe and Melanie and I look forward to seeing them in the next book. I love the guys in Sole Regrets *grins*

No one writes flirting and sexual chemistry as Olivia Cunning.

Melanie's not a groupie. She's not into bad boys and she couldn't even list the names of the members in the band her friend dragged her to see tonight. Mel's only there to make sure her bestie doesn't get into too much trouble. Her obliviousness and general aversion to rockers makes her and Gabe's first meeting pretty interesting.

This was my first rock star romance, and I dug it. Be advised it is short though; it's part of a serial format where the author writes revolving novellas featuring a

I didn't know when I started this that it was so short, so I was really surprised when I hit the end of the story so soon!! I think it's only fair to judge shorts differently than a full-length story, because they are clearly written very differently and have varying degrees of difficulty. Basing this review on the challenges that come with making a short story have a believable romance with interesting characters and some semblance of plot to hold the story together, I think Try Me deserves ...more

Wow. I REALLY liked this one!!! Try Me is the 1st installment in the One Night with Sole Regret series. It's a sweet & sexy novella that features two FANTASTIC CHARACTERS!!! These days, it's rare to find a novel that features two unique & likable main characters. More often than not, one of the protagonists is bound to become annoying or loathsome over time.... In this particular novel, however, the hero & the heroineGabe & Melanie are just BOTH so damn endearing. And although ...more

Ohhhh boy, did this make a fun night time read, it's gone midnight here and I think I'm in need of a cold shower! If you love Olivia's Sinner Boys, you will love Sole Regret. This is a fantastic short story which introduces us to a new hard metal band with Mohawks, tattoos and piercings to boot.

This story revolves around a young accountant and the drummer, known as Force, as they embark on a very passionate one night love affair. So OK, it gets mushy quickly and they soon discover that this
