From the moment he lays eyes on Sinners’ new front of house soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she’s too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention.

Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy. But Eric makes her la

Backstage Pass (Brian & Myrna)
Rock Hard (Seth & Jessica)
Hot Ticket (Jace & Aggie)
Wicked Beat (Eric & Rebekah) *my top fave*
Double Time (Trey, Reagan & Ethan)

I started skimming after 40% and finally lost interest by 68%.

I loved Eric–and kudos to Olivia Cunning for having the courage to give Eric the sexual problem (view spoiler) he had. It was brilliantly done and she made me LOVE him even more! Sadly, I did not care for the heroine, Rebekah. I was disappointed that she kept pining for Trey instead of Eric. I felt he deserved someone better; someone who had eyes only for him! To be fair, though, Rebeka

Eric Sticks is the random, funny, inappropriate, sweet and sexy drummer for The Sinners. He isn’t just a drummer. He does a lot of composing for the band as well. He can play about any instrument. From the previous books, I always think of him as ‘the watcher’- and we learn why he is a watcher...

Adult review for erotic content.

Real. Life. Problems.

I haven't checked out many reviews for this book yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if at least a few people took issue with Eric's "issue" turning out to be something which doesn't exactly fit the role of him being a sexy rock god.

Personally, I loved how real his problem was. All this time, I wondered why Eric liked to watch more than participate. And even though his reason for being standoffish was not the sexiest reason in the world (and

Eric + Rebekah = Best Sinners Couple!!!!

My Eric:

My Reb:


No drama. They say what they mean. They mean what they say. They center their relationship on never lying to each other (awesome!). Eric is the funny man (which is why I love him!), and he lets silly and stupid things slip all the time. Reb is so perfect for him because she never takes him seriously and laughs at everything he says (sounds like me!).

We finally get Eric's story and if you were bad like me and read them as they came out instead of in order...than this is the last Sinner's book.

I have to be honest...I wasn't sure if I would like Eric's book. I didn't really ever warm up to him and his voyeurism ways. But...I'm glad I read it because I was totally surprised!

Eric, who's the drummer for the band, turned into this sweet, loving, kind person who instead of being hateful because of his past, reaches out and embraces life. W
The Fourth Book in the Sinners on Tour Series was all about Eric Sticks & Rebekah (aka "Reb") - Overall it was a fun book, but it had some ups and downs for me.

The Ups -
1. I thought it was adorable that Sticks went all stupid love at first sight for Reb right out of the gate.
2. I love that Trey (view spoiler)
I love a funny guy! And, Eric is always cracking corny jokes and being silly. Most people don't even realize he's joking half the time and don't know what to think of him. I totally relate to this. My husband is freaking hilarious. But, when you add his crazy humor to his thick British accent, I have people constantly looking at me with a look that says they aren't sure if he said that, but if he did they might be offended. Ha! I love that! When we drove through the car wash and they asked what ...more

Can I say I love Eric? He was funny, sweet, sensitive, cool, loving, tough, jealous, patient, sexy.... just a perfect book boyfriend.

Reb was a girl on a mission out to prove herself in the rock n roll world and instead of landing Trey (who she thought she wanted before she got there) she ended up with Eric and it truly was a perfect match. She got his sense of humor, loved him for who he is and helped him out with his issue......

I loved how playful these two were. I adored that they couldn't ke

To start this post off I have to tell you

Gave it another go but still DNF, this time @ 40%

I was so bummed when I got turned down for an ARC of this book but now I see it as an omen of some sort - in the last few months, every book I was turned down for, ended up being mediocre at best.

I am a HUGE fan of Olivia's Sinners on Tour series but this book just didn't do it for me. At all. And I LOVE Eric's character. I can't believe I am going to say this but this book had way too much sex and almost no story at all. Female
Woo Hoo!!! I just go this ARC from Netgalley!! So excited I actually squealed!!! As soon as I finish what I am reading now I am jumping on Eric into Wicked Beat with both feet!! :)

Ok, you all know that I am the biggest FUCKING SINNERS FANGIRL, right?? Well, a part of me is so sad that this is the end of the Sinners books, but WOW! What a great ride!

Now, I promise not to give to much away since most of you suckers awesome people have to wait unit August for this book :) *evil grin*

Maybe you're wondering how many times I wrote a review for Wicked Beat. Or maybe you aren't, but I'm going to tell you anyway. THREE TIMES! That's right. My first review was a long page of ranting about Rebekah (which I hate, and not in the loving kind of way how I do that bish Myrna, plus she doesn't mind sharing Brian and Trey with me. Shut up! She doesn't. Ok?!). Then I deleted my first review, went and opened a bottle of wine (I dra

What is there not to love when it comes to another Sinners release? Although I felt like I was cheated by the out of order release of these books, I still loved Eric's story.

Eric Sticks

We have seen the voyeuristic side to Eric over the last four books - we know he likes to watch but never before have we been told why he likes to watch...

and a little more of this...

Eric always came across as sort of a goof-ball in the other books - you got to see a little bit of his softer side in Jace's book. Bu

*Spoiler free review*

I really wanted to enjoy that book, and I really tried but for the love of me, I couldn't. Here are some of the reasons why.

1/ The heroine. She is one of the dumbest, shallowest, sluttiest, less likable heroine I read about. She lusted about everyone and everything (even Eric's car) but him — and she wasn't shy about displaying her interest. She eventually turned to Eric only because Trey blatantly dismissed her. To now, I still can't understand how these two fell

This book is my favorite Sinners Book and it reminded me of an old Blue Oyster Cult song – You’re Not The One I Was Looking For, But You’re The One For Me -

Wicked Beat is filled with scorching hot, sensual scenes that will melt your panties and turn you on so much you’ll turn into pile of mush. Every page is written specially for erotica fans, who won’t be disappointed by this fast paced, hardcore read.

Wicked Beat is another erotica novel in Sinners Series. This time Eric Sticks the kinky, but shy drummer meets his perfect match, Rebekah.

Rating: A- ... Heat: Sizzling

From the moment Eric Sticks first got his perv on in Backstage Pass, a hot little scene with Brian and Myrna, I was all about the Sinners drummer (although, there is an even hotter scene with Eric, Aggie, and Jace in Hot Ticket). More than a little bit odd, and always saying the craziest things, I could tell there was so much hidden underneath all that. A loneliness. A vulnerability. And, well, his unusual charm combined with his pervy tendencies made me fall for him

Sorry to say that this was my least favorite in the Sinners on Tour series. A bit disappointing since Eric has been so memorable throughout this series, and is one of my favorites of the guys! He has always been the one guy to bring a smile to my face, with his humor, quirkiness, lightheartedness and his enthusiasm to join in on any fun in the bedroom :D (view spoiler)

So why oh why wasn’t there

I love this series Eric Sticks was not my favorite member of Sinners in the other books I felt that he played too much and I didn't like him picking on Jace with that being said I loved this book. Eric was just what Rebekah Blake needed although I did feel at times she was too needy.

I have a new favorite Sinner! I have been not so patiently waiting for Eric's book to come out and I was honored to get an advanced copy of Wicked Beat. This book was everything I hoped it would be and more! Eric gets his HEA with a wonderful heroine, who is a great addition to the Sinners' family. Rebekah has had her fair share of heart breaks and Eric was just the guy to help put her back together.

Gitte: I was so excited for Eric’s turn in the Sinners series. He’s been a bit of an enigma for me and as Olivia Cunning is my ROCK STAR I just couldn’t wait to devour Wicked Beat. So, writing this review hurts like a bitch because I just didn’t get it, I enjoyed it but I didn’t get that feeling. I guess didn’t connect. I was sadly disappointed.
