Wow…I liked this one as much as the first, and this is a hard one to review without giving anything away.…
Jace is HOT and while a bit broken he finally gets it (what he has, what he has missed seeing the last couple of years) at the end….what was really cool with this one was getting to see him come into his own and let the wall down a little bit at a time….Aggie was AWESOME and oh so patient…while generally in my reading I’m not a fan of Dominatrix’s, and the infliction of pain to the extent that some of her clients wanted it…it was not as “in your face” as it is in some books so it did not bother me. There were a couple of heart stopping moments when the bad luck that started with book 2 seemed to continue…there did seem to be a loose end or two but hopefully we should get those addressed in the next books
The side stories with the rest of the band members was great, it was fun to see how things were going with Brian & Myrna and Sed & Jessica and I can’t wait for Eric’s and Trey’s books.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Wow this is the best story yet, this amazing series just keeps getting better and better. Nice emotions in this book with lot's of hot and spicy sex as always. Please keep many more books coming, FAST :)
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Yes, It is very enjoyable. I've wanted to hear Jace's story for awhile, Jace has always been the quite one and I knew his story would be good and it was.. He had so much tragedy in his life. Aggie came into his life and helped him mend his tragic past.
Jace. His journey to the present from the tragedy of his past.
I loved it and I believe it was well worth my credit. This book is intended for a mature audience due to explict sexual content. Also this is actually Book 3 in the series. The Sinner's Series book in audible listed as book 3 is actually book 5. Waiting on Eric's story.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
This is by far the best book of the series!!
All the books are good with a little light-heartedness; however, this book is not only a little dark but has wonderful banter between the band members!!
Another great addition to the series. Still deep, still steamy. Narration is good but instead of yelling or screaming dramatic parts, she does this weird whisper thing like she doesn't want to wake someone (shrugs)
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good story. I liked Jace and Aggie and their story was deep and emotional, dealing a lot with inside angst and not much outside drama.
Aggie is a stripper and a Dominatrix. She deals out "corporal punishment" on men for very good money and does the stripping because she enjoys it. She hasn't had good luck with encountering good men (since she was very young) and it is what propelled her into being a Domme. She has an irresponsible mother and a father that wasn't around since before she was born so Aggie has had to fend for herself most of her life. She's certainly never found a man she'd trust in a relationship.
Jace has a very tragic past. His mother blamed him for her own lost dreams and emotionally abused him for years. Then when she died in a car wreck, his father took out his rage on Jace, blaming Jace for all his problems. As you can see...Jace really lost the parents lotto. His father died when Jace was in his teens, in a way that had Jace blaming himself. Jace grew up in a mess of self hatred and guilt. Thankfully, he found something to give him hope...something to that made him want to become a great bass player so he could join his favorite band, Sinners. Years later, it actually happens.
Although Jace has achieved his dream of being a bass player with Sinners, he's still consumed by inner pain. When it gets too bad, he needs to find release through physical pain. Sometimes fighting will do it but it's hard to fight without messing up his hands and/or getting in trouble with the police. What really helps him is to find a Domme to give him pain. He's not a submissive and doesn't get off on being humiliated but he needs the pain. When the story begins, there's some overlap with the timeframe of book #2 Rock Hard and they're at Brian's bachelor party. At the strip club, Jace sees Aggie (aka Mistress V) dancing and she notices him in return. There's some flirting and such and soon Jace is finding out that she's a real Domme and trying to set up an appointment for later. Unfortunately, their conversation is interrupted when some bouncers start giving some of the other band members trouble and there's a fight. Jace isn't able to finish talking to Aggie and she doesn't think she'll see him again. She's a little sad too because she was attracted to Jace in a way she hadn't felt for a man before. Jace isn't deterred though and comes back to find her and make arrangements to meet the next night.
When Jace arrives for his session, Aggie is surprised to find that he's not submissive and it just turns her on more. She doesn't sleep with her clients so once she ends her session with Jace she declares herself done with him as a paying client because she wants him in bed. Jace is very much up for that but has some kinks that makes it hard to be with most women and he is nervous about what Aggie will think of him. They find that their kinks work well together though and they appreciate the things about each other that most people wouldn't. They end up seeing each other a few times before Jace has to leave town and they keep in contact once he leaves. Jace has never had much luck with people that were supposed to love him in the past so he's never sought a relationship. He fears them and isn't usually willing to consider anything lasting but he can't stop thinking about Aggie. Eventually they see each other more and their connection grows each time they do. Aggie starts to realize Jace's issues and slowly and carefully tries to help him through the minefield that is his past and emotions. Things don't always go smoothly and there are other external issues that have to be dealt with as well but I liked the way things worked out. Jace and Aggie do end the story starting a well deserved HEA.
This was a very enjoyable story (in a very emotional way). I really liked Aggie as a heroine, sometimes she was almost a little too perfect but it wasn't bad. Jace was a wonderful damaged hero, so sweet and with so much love in him yet so doubting of his own worth, convinced that no one could care for him...you just can't help but want him to find true happiness. Jace and Aggie together just really worked for me, they fit each other perfectly. Overall, it was a very emotional but very good story. I'd recommend this story. :)
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
I loved listening to this book and this series so far this one is my favorite. Hot Ticket starts off with scenes that occur in Rock Hard. Jace the quite shy bass player who hardly talks meets Aggie dancing in a strip club. When Jace first meets Mistress V all he wants is someone to hurt him so hard that it pushes the pain he always feels inside into the background, just for a little while. Mistress V is good at what she does. Men may pay for twenty minutes on the other side of her floggers, she usually has them begging for mercy within a few minutes. Jace is something different though; it doesn't matter what implement she uses or how hard she strikes him, Jace doesn't beg for mercy, he begs for more instead. And Jace is special in a different way too. For the first time ever Mistress V wants to disappear into the background and allow Aggie, her day to day persona, to interact with what should be nothing more than a paying client. I felt like Eric the group is working on a new album and it is cursed all of the members have been hurt and couldn't play at some point. Jace was shot trying to protect Aggie while she was being mugged and because of it his place in the band is in jeopardy when they bring in the guy he replaced Jon. Jace has a past filled with pain and despair. A past he refuses to talk about. A past that leaves him unable to believe that anybody could see him as good, never mind loveable. As the bassist in Sinners hard rock band he should be on top of the world. Aggie has had a turbulent past as well, and her mother still causes upheaval in her life on a regular basis. But while Aggie's attitude is to let the past be the past and live in the present, Jace can't distance himself from his hurtful memories and doesn't trust the present, especially not when the here and now is actually good. I loved that Aggie was patient with Jace and she understood his needs and was willing to help him. This book had some hot as sex scenes Jace was sexually aroused by being hit and I loved it when he would tell Aggie "Hurt Me" while they were having sex. It was good that Jace came out of his shell and started bonding with his band mates as Eric was the reason why he begin playing bass. I loved listening this series.
Hot, Interesting, Sad
I'd say the most memorable moment for me when Jace was in the dungeon with Mistress V
At times and then other times no. I felt like she was reading to me rather than performing in certain areas.
I laughed several times when Eric was around. I don't think I cried but there were some sad moments.
I'm one of the reviewers at the Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I am always reading - I don't go anywhere without an ebook or audiobook!
It seems with each book, this series keeps getting hotter. Secondary characters show up in each book and add to the overall feeling of community. The band feels more like family and I'm enjoying getting to know them. The Cunning/ O'Keef combo is a good one - keep the audiobooks coming!
