He Craves Her Music and Passion
On the rebound from the tumult of his bisexual lifestyle, notoriously sexy rock guitarist Trey Mills falls for sizzling new female guitar sensation Reagan Elliot and is swept into the hot, heady romance he never dreamed possible.
She Can’t Get Enough of His Body
Ecstatic to be on tour learning the ropes with Trey’s band, The Sinners, Reagan finds she craves Trey as much as she craves being in the spotlight.
They Both Need More…
When Reagan’s ex, Ethan Connor, enters the scene, Trey’s secret desires come back to haunt him, and pleasure and passion are taken to a whole new level of dangerous desire.
Quick & Dirty: This book wasn’t written with me in mind.
Opening Sentence: “Trey.”
This book is the final book in the Sinners on Tour series by Olivia Cunning and as some of you may know I like to start with book 1 and work my way through a series. One of the many reasons I prefer to read in the order that an author has written a series allows me to meet and get to know the characters. This was not the case with this series and I’m glad. What do I mean by that statement? If the rest of the series is like this book then I would have not made it through the first book much less the other books to get to Double Time which is the book I’m reviewing.
There are not many times that I will intentionally walk away from a book and dread picking it back up again but this book squarely falls into that category. The opening sequence with Trey and Brian was too much for this girl. I knew going into this that there was some male on male but I didn’t anticipate it starting in Chapter 1. If you are in the least bit unsure of whether you want to read about male on male action then I would give this book a wide berth.
Promiscuous male characters are a central plot point in many romance stories but Trey’s character seems to have too many plot holes to be a viable character. His interactions with Reagan are charming but were too infrequent for me.
Now Reagan has moments in this book where I’m blown away by her effervescence but then she has moments where she has too be one of the stupidest woman on the planet. Her fangirl side really irritated me. I get being blown away by the fact you are in the same room with people you have held in high regard but it always seems to end up with her considering making out with them which is a bit much.
The third character in this book is Ethan, who is Reagan’s roommate and former lover. There are moments in this story where he is the Alpha male and then all of the sudden he is portrayed as a man who must be trained and dominated. Doesn’t make much sense to me at all.
Overall, this book was not for me and I couldn’t recommend it to someone else. Hopefully if I review another Olivia Cunning book, I will have a better experience.
Trey exited the studio and opened the door to the sound booth. “Ha, Ha, Brian, very funny.” Except it wasn’t Brian playing ‘Gates of Hell’ to perfection. It was that woman. Her dirty-blond hair was cut into a short, sassy style. She wore faded army-green cargo pants, combat boots, a plain white tank top, and not a stitch of makeup. She held her red Stratocaster with authority and played it as if it was her little bitch. The woman was a fucking goddess.
Reagan slapped her hand on her guitar strings to stop their vibration. Trey Mills had burst into the recording booth and scared the shit out of her. Now he stood there in the open door gaping at her and setting her heart aflutter. The last time she’d felt like this was the day she’d met Ethan Conner, and that had turned out to be the most fucked up experience of her life. She didn’t need this kind of nipple-tingling distraction right now. She needed to concentrate on her audition.
