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
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

Backstage Pass is my first read by Olivia Cunning, and I enjoyed it immensely! I've clearly been missing out over here! Hooolllyyy shit!! This book is hot af!!! I'm serious, guys! Prudes need to step away from this one! You will be fanning yourself in multiple places and praying your kindle doesn't catch fire!

What did I love most about the book? I would have to say the hero, Brian Sinclair. He is a gorgeous rock star with a big heart, a thick cock, and magic fingers! What's not to love? I al

This book should come with a vibrator attachment. Holy hell. Loved it.
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 I usually 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 found Backstage

2.5 stars

OK short and dirty, this book was okay, but, and I can't believe I'm going to say this "It has too much sex" OMG I know I can't believe I said that either. I loved me some sexy time in books and I don't mind heavy amounts of sex in books either. Damn but this book was almost all sex with a small sprinkling of weak plot. Sorry! I really wanted to like it, but I found myself bored and skipping over a lot of the sex. Oh well they can't all be winners.
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

A Rock Star + a Professor of Sex = naughty things.

I spent most of my time reading this book looking like this:

I wanted to look away but I couldn't make myself.

Myrna had many lessons in sex ed that I never knew existed. These are things that weren't taught to us in sex ed classes in high school... description

Review re-posted on Got Fiction?

I got this book for review, and it turns out it’s one I’ve read before! It looks like Sourcebooks is repackaging this series. If you like rockstar romance, I want to say this is the book that sort of kicked off that subgenre a few years ago.

I also want to say that once I realized I’d read this, I didn’t re-read it, so I”m not sure how it would hold up to my tastes now, 5 years later. Sometimes books really hold up well, sometimes they don’t. But here’s my original

When I decided to start reading this story I had Avenged Sevenfold’s album “Nightmare” playing softly in the background…

Really Kellie?? who are you shitting??.. It wasn’t playing softly, who plays Metal softly? It was LOUD.. but it was still in the background! Alright…

So anyway!!
While I was reading away in this book and falling for Brian, Sed, Trey, Jace and Eric I looked up some other reviews to see if anyone had any photos of how they envisioned Brian… As I couldn’t quite p

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.

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

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.

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,

I'm going to let my other favorite tattooed musician sum up my feelings for the first book in the series,

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

As smut goes, this was pretty fun porn. All about a metal band that tours the country to do shows and hump everything within a 10 mile radius.

And, I had to wonder: why would anyone want this as their life? It didn't seem glamorous, it seemed kind of depressing. Maybe it's the female in me or something, but I can't imagine anything worse than traveling in a filthy bus for months at a time. Ick! I can barely handle the smell after a 6 hour road trip with my family. What happens on a molecular lev
Just as I remembered...HOT!!!

I swear I get shifty eyes when I listen to books this HOT. I'm convinced that EVERYONE around me can hear, too.

Yeah, yeah, judge me all you like...I'm just interested in the storyline (wink, wink).
Holy Super Sexy Series Batman!!
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:
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.
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

Second Read...

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)

Adult review for erotic content

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

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! I mean, **gasp** what would my husband say

Now THAT was pure, smutty fun! :D

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)

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
