GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Backstage Pass: Sinners on Tour by Olivia Cunning


Description

Five stunning guys, one hot woman, and a feverish romance...
For him, life is all music and no play...
When Brian Sinclair, lead songwriter and guitarist of the hottest metal band on the scene, loses his creative spark, it will take nights of downright sinful passion to release his pent-up genius...
She's the one to call the tune...
When sexy psychologist Myrna Evans goes on tour with the Sinners, every boy in the band tries to seduce her. But Brian is the only one she wants to get her hands on...
Then the two lovers' wildly shocking behavior sparks the whole band to new heights of glory...and sin...

WARNING!  THIS BOOK CONTAINS EXPLICIT CONTENT 

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT -- ADORED IT -- IF I HAD A HIGHER RATING, THIS BOOK WOULD EARN IT.

First off, if you didn't notice that this book is an erotic romance novel, I am telling you again.  Now, I am going to rave about it.
Olivia Cunning has written an erotic romance that will spell out all of those romantic fantasies every girl has had about a rock band.  And I know every girl has had these same fantasies, it is just none of us are as talented as Ms. Cunning when it comes to putting words on paper.  She covers all of the band members so no one feels left out.  I stopped reading erotic romances a while ago when they all started to sound the same.  It was just sex and a meager storyline to link said sex together.  Backstage Pass is a story that makes the sex necessary.  It works.  Plain and simple, this is a novel that doesn't rely on the erotic to get the point across, but the erotic part is almost perfection.
The main character of Myrna is a nice change from the usual rock groupie since she isn't one. She comes across as intelligent and strong and even though she is a psychologist, she unsure of her own sexuality.  Brian is pure rock god with a sensitive side and a little Tommy Lee mixed in.  Yes, I know he is the guitar player, but I was imagining Mr. Lee's swagger when I read this one. You can insert your own rock god fantasy here and no, I don't fantasize about Tommy Lee.  I never kiss and tell. 
I  have read that the next books will deal with each band member, so I will have something to look forward to and so will you.  This book could have really been a cliche' and Cunning elevates this above your typical erotic romance.  Oh, heck, just go buy the book and read it for yourself.  It is that good.
