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...

Also in this series: Rock Hard

My Synopsis:
Myrna Evans is a Human sexuality professor. She was previously married to an abusive man and has since then taken measures to make sure her ex never finds her. She is in Chicago for a teacher’s conference and after a long day of seminars and speaking, Myrna is ready to head to her room to relax. On her way to her room she spots one of her favorite rock bands “Sinners” in the lounge area of the hotel where the conference is taking place. Myrna can’t let this once in a lifetime opportunity to pass her by, so she decides to go introduce herself and meet her favorite rock band.

Brian Sinclair aka Master Sinclair to his legions of fan is drunk and brokenhearted. He’s the lead guitarist and the music composer for the Sinners band. His latest lady love has cheated on him with the lead vocalist of their group Sed Lionheart. Brian is a hopeless romantic and falls easily in love. He pretty much wears his heart on his sleeves. He’s looking for something more than just a quick fuck.

When Myrna walks up to the group she is immediately drawn to Brian even though he’s drunk. Sparks are instantly there for her. As for Brian once the drunken fog clears, he notices the sexy professor noticing him. Myrna offers to take care of Brian and they spend the night together and wake up to some delicious morning sexing that inspires Brian to write some lovely music. What’s supposed to be a onetime fantasy fulfillment turns into a more complicated situation for Myrna.

My Review:
There was a lot of buzz about this book and how very dirty the sexing is. Once I heard these two magical words “dirty sexing” I was all over this book. I had to have it. Boy was I glad, that I picked up this book and read it. This is my kind of erotic romance. There’s a unique storyline about a rock group, sexy romantic leading man, great secondary characters and lots of burn your sheets loving. I loved Brian from the start with his broken heart and all. Who could resist someone who genuinely is a sweet person that just puts it all out there emotion wise? I loved Brian. I always knew where he stood. His character never wavered. Once he loves he loves. Myrna on the other hand was complicated. I liked Myrna! I really did, but sometimes her character just made me want to smack her. I understood where her reluctance came from but once things started getting serious her actions came off a bit heartless. I did want to high five her when she stuck up for Brian with his parents. That was a great moment.

The other band members added to this book. The relationship and the conversations between the guys had me cracking up. From the crap talking to the practical jokes they played one another. I can’t wait for Rock Hard which is Sed’s book. The bad guy of this book felt a little flat for me though. Once we meet up with him after all the stuff we learned I was expecting something more climatic but it was a “meh” scene for me. Overall I enjoyed this book tremendously. I am definitely a new fan of Olivia and the Sinners band. Just be warned this book is not for the prudes at heart. This is up in your face dirty, wet your drawers sexing, which I loved.

    @Barbara–thanks girl! Yea the sexin lived up alright.

    @Laurie–LOL Laurie. I thought I was the last one to have read this series. Crossing my fingers that you’ll get to it soon. 🙂

    @Mary–agreed those sexin scenes were HAWT!

    @VFG–I can’t wait for Sed either. What do you think of the new cover of his book? I kinda liked the old one better. So glad you got me about Myrna. I wanted to slap her several times.

    @BLHmistress–I didn’t think I’d like a book about a bunch of rockers but this was a nice surprise. Hope you get it soon girl.

    @Meggerfly–Thanks girl. Seriously get this book. I hope you get to read it soon. 🙂

  2. I totally agree with your thoughts that Myrna was or could be heartless. My like for her in the beginning edged into complete dislike by the end of the read and I thought her declaration of love wasn’t good enough for Brian. Buuuuut I am interested in Sed’s story.

    Great review!
