What are you going to do to me?"
"Lamb, the question you should be asking is what aren't you going to do to me?"

No one and I mean no one can write an erotic rockstar romance quite like Olivia Cunning. This book served as the perfect reminder of why I fell in love with her writing and characters in the first place when I first discovered her Sinners series years ago. But this book? This gloriously sexy and make you laugh out loud like a loon book? This is easily my favorite bo

When I first saw there was an Exodus End book coming out, I was so excited I couldn't stand it! I thought… this is it. We are finally getting that Dare Mills book I’ve been waiting for. Well, this is not Dare’s book. This is Logan’s book. Logan Schmidt is the bassist for Exodus End and he is one of the most fun and charismatic rock stars I’ve ever read about. He’s a dare devil, a guy that will make you laugh out loud and a total sweetheart. I’m still anxious for Dare’s book, but I

DNF @ 20 Percent

”I’m sorry I don’t know what came over me. I just… wanted it.”


To be honest, I purchased this book on release day and read 20 percent and quietly put it aside. I was shocked that yesterday I was approved a copy through Net Galley since it's now released. Sadly, now I have to write something about my endeavor.

Unfortunately, the brilliant, sweet, virgin jumping IMMEDIATELY into the sack with the bassist and so on was totally contradictory to the picture the author painted in th

Where do I begin?

For those who know Olivia Cunning's books I'm sure you were all dying to get Insider and I know most of you have waited for such a long time but be assured that it will all be worth it! ^^


This book will meet ALL your expectations. To me, Insider is probably the best book she had ever written! You can find all the ingredient that you've known in Olivia's book; Rockstars + smashing heroine + bad boy/dirty talker + sexiness + steam... a lot of steam + sex... a lot of sex = PERFECTI

Toni is a completely naïve, clueless girl who has been the guardian of her little sister, ever since their father passed away. Because of her sister’s health issues she decided to be home schooled and now it's finally her time to prove to everyone that she’s worthy of being a journalist, not just because her mother is the owner of a big company, but because she's worthy. On her quest for recognition, she decided to make an album about a band’s life and the ban

A few obstacles falter her assurance in herself. She's a caregiver to her mentally handicapped sister who relies on her a lot. Toni has moments where she questions if she's the right person to write a book about the band.

Being a 25 year old virgin didn't surprise me but the fact she jumped into bed with a band member shortly after meeting him seemed very out of character for her. Logan, the ba

I enjoyed Olivia Cummings' Sinners series. The first book was my intro to rock band goodness... all the alpha brooding men with dirty talk to die for. The set up of woman on the bus with them...and all of the fun which happened struck me as a great read. Loved It.

This entry had a new Rock Band, an extremely innocent gal for the main character but with the ability to play off her inexperience verbally.

I’ve got the most exciting news for you!
I’ve been sharing a bus with Exodus End! Don’t believe me? Meh, you’re just jealous. I mean, I would be jealous too. Sharing a closed up space with Dare Mills, Logan Schmidt, Max Richardson and Steve Aimes… Oh yeah. Perfection.

I finished The Insider over a week ago and for the life of me, I haven't been able to force myself to hunker down and write this review. I think it all comes down to the fact that I started it, then at 20% put it aside, claiming book slumpapnia. Then, deciding to soldier on, started it again. Then gave into my desire to start something else and put it aside yet again. This annoying pattern plagued me for

It really feels like I've been waiting forever to read this book. When it finally arrived … let’s just say, there was a little celebrating going on in my house … just anticipating all the sexxxy of this book had my hormones racing. (am I blushing yet?) But seriously - if there’s one thing I can count on Olivia Cunning for, it’s turning up the heat!

"I'm in love with a rockstar!"

The Insider is my first read by the amazing Olvia Cunning. Her writing skills are superb and the music seems to radiate right off of the pages.


In the Insider, we have a young nerdy journalist named Toni who is given the task to follow the band Exodus End and report on the "ins and outs" of the band lifestyle in a best selling book. She hopes to capture the essence of the band and create a masterpiece that will launch her career and p

Can I just double die. I've gone and went to heaven. I'm shrieking like a little b*tch right now. OMFG There's going to be another Sinners on Tour book, and OMFG Exodus End is getting their own series.

I could cry right now I'm so excited.
But it doesn't come out until 2014..

No one writes rock stars like Olivia Cunning! She's one of the best when it comes to the ambience of this sub-genre. Insider was a bit longwinded and I found myself skimming some of the sex scenes but overall I enjoyed it.

I can't stand either one of the main characters. I really like the Sinners series and I may try the other books in this series, but this specific book is just not the book for me.

4 "Don't Say It If You Don't Mean It" Stars!

Of the Olivia Cunning books that I've read, I know that she is great at writing awesome rockstar books. Insider is the first book in her Exodus End series.

Toni has just gotten the best job in the world. She's going to follow the band Exodus End around to gather information and pictures for an interactive electronic biography book. The only problem is, this is her first real job that is taking her outside of her comfort zone. Most of her jobs have been

I love Rock Stars. A lot . Part of the reason for that love is because of Olivia Cunning. Her Sinners on Tour series changed me completely and started my obsession with both her writing and the rock gods she creates within the pages. To say I was excited about the spin off series for Exodus End would be…the fucking understatement of the century. I’ve basically been waiting for this book

Well the wait for the first book of Exodus End did not kill me like I originally thought! Who would have thunk it!

Toni Nichols is getting her chance to live her life, explore her dreams of her future and lose a little bit of her innocence. Doing an interactive biography about Metal band Exodus End is about to deliver all of that and then some.

Bassist, Logan is a thrill seeker at heart and a man-whore on most days, but there is something about Toni that has his full attention even if he isn’t wil

4 Rockin' Stars!!!

Olivia Cunning writes these rock star books making you feel a part of the band, that you’re just a little bit cooler, a little more rock and roll, at least while you’re reading it. Her characters are presented very vividly, like you are both their fan and their friend.

Toni Nichols is an inexperienced 25 year old who had chosen to take care of her younger sister instead of chasing her dreams. However, she is now finally going to take advantage of an opportunity that presented it

It was a solid 4 star read until I hit the 70% mark. Oh man, after reading those last 30% I want to downgrade the rating to one star, because that is how bad and upsetting it was.

The whole time I was reading the book, I was hoping and praying it won't take the overused and most obvious direction. Unfortunately, the book did take that direction and it was even worse than I anticipated.

Ahhh what a fucking disappointment. After that ending I can't even list the many things I liked about this book.

Ohhhhh be still my heart! I love Loogan and Toni. Olivia Cunning never disappoints. She is the queen of hot rockers.
Such a loving story with glimpses into the whole EE crew along with much loved Sinners Updates.

Toni is a sweet sheltered girl with way to much responsibility at home who finally gets a shot at her creative dream, writing the story of EE from their point of view. From the moment she sees Logan sparks fly...and in typical OC style, this book is hot!

Of course there is someone who is p

I LOVE LOGAN SCHMIDT! 5 rock star and sexy stars for Olivia Cunning's Insider. I do love when stories touch on celebrities because it is such an interesting thing to play with. This book could have gone a lot of ways but I think Cunning took the right path and I love her for it. This book was fucking dynamite!

Logan, my precious and charming Logan, I love you! Logan is a playboy with a killer smile, all the right words and moves, and enough heart to make him potent. He's a bit lost which is what
It has been a long time since I’ve read an Olivia Cunning book. And I’d forgotten how much I loved her writing. Ever since Dare was first introduced in the Sinners series, I’ve been intrigued by him and his band. I kept hoping and praying that the author would write books for Exodus End. This book was a long time coming and it. was. AWESOME.

I really loved Toni. She was a little naïve and that surprised me. Not so much that she was naïve but at the extent of the naiveté. But her shyness, inabili
