It's been months since Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist for the famous rock band Sinners, composed anything. Unable to write the music that once flowed so naturally, Brian is lost without his musical mojo. But when sexy psychology professor Myrna Evans comes on tour to study groupie mentality, Brian may have found the spark he needs to reignite his musical genius. When lust turns to love, will Brian be able to convince Myrna that what they have is more than just a fling, and that now that he's found his heart's muse, he doesn't want to live without her?

"An erotic foray into the behind-the-scenes world of a heavy metal band." (Fresh Fiction)
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Other reviews will use words like hot, or sizzling, or steamy, and all those words are true. What they may not mention is this book also has real heart. It's laugh out loud funny in places, and heartbreaking, and heart-warming.
Backstage Pass is most of all, a love story. Romance with a capital "R". Two very real, wonderfully three dimensional people with histories, and baggage, and hang-ups, who come together for a night of hot sex and find themselves in love. And one of them is going to resist that feeling with everything they've got. Their journey, played out against the background of a rock tour and all the accompanying insanity of that, makes me glad I got to go along for the ride.
Ms. Cunning does an outstanding job of weaving in the music, and making the concert scene--in all its grungy reality--come alive for the reader. It's a fresh, original concept, handled beautifully by someone who knows how to write extraordinarily well, and whose love of the music comes through in every scene.
She's also introduced larger than life characters who are secondary in this first book of the Sinners on Tour series, but who will each have their turn to take centre stage in the subsequent books. I can hardly wait. Imagine me, standing here in the dark, my lighter raised high, screaming for an encore!
Justine O. Keef did a great job in the delivery of the story. This really one of my favourite audio books I will listen again. Please, please Audible more of the Sinners on tour.
When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
I found the sex scenes in this book very HOT! However, the storyline felt a little slacking. I wish they could combine more story with the sex scenes. I was interested in all the characters and was slightly disappointed not to found out more about them. If your looking for a book with great sex and a simple story this book is definitely for you! Happy Listening!
I would say this is in the top three. This was my absolute favorite book on Kindle. I couldn't wait for it to come out on audio.
There is a little bit of everything in the book. My favorite part is the humor between the bandmates and the hopeless romantic Brian.
Justine tries very hard to make the guys sound like rock stars, but there is only so much a women can emulate a males' voice (especially screaming) without being a male herself. :)
Both. Olivia Cunning does a GREAT job of pulling you into the story completely.
This is by far one of my favorite books. It is probably too explicit for some listeners, but if you can handle Fifty Shades or similar, you will love this book! I cant wait for the others to come out on audio. I already own all of her books that are out on my Kindle!
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
After reading the reviews I was not sure I wanted to listen to this book. I took a chance. Normally, I do not favor any books when there is a menage de trios but, I was surprised it did not bother me as much as I thought. The story line was so well done, you sort of not notice the sexual content as much. And yes there was quite a bit of sexual content. This book is not for the faint at heart. I was thoroughly surprised at this book. So much in fact that I downloaded the next one. You really get involved with the characters and want to know what happened. I loved Brian and Myrna. Yes they are weird and not a typical couple, but you feel they really love each other. And let's face it it's a book. The narrator did a pretty good job. Better than most. It's a wild hot story that takes you for a ride, I guarantee you won't be bored.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Sinners on TOUR!!! What ... Amazing... Master Sinclair!!! Soooo totally goood. I loved this book. I was so not expecting this, but WOW. From Chapter 1 I was blow away by Professor Sex... OMG! Loved it. Two people who should not be together that are so totally perfect for each other. I love it. I was shock too at the end when I found out about TREY... WHAT!!! U Gotta listen to know what I am talking about... Trust when I say, you won't be disappointed. Master Sinclair creates the great music riffs when making love... how perfect... Right...???
Totally buy or credit. This is totally worth it.
Narration was just awesome.
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.
Great story!! (Caution contains explict sexual content.) In my opinion it was totally awesome. I wanted to listen to it in one session. I was so wrapped up in the story and that does not happen often. It's well worth the credit. I hope the next book in this series is as good because I'm getting that one too.
I chose this book based on the ratings and I was not disappointed. The sex scenes were very steamy and the love story of Brian and Mryna keep me interested. I plan to look out for more work from the author.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Great, funny and interesting characters all get involved in this very touching and very sexy steamy romance and I thought the descriptions of the band, tour, groupies etc., was brilliantly written.
Worth a credit? Oh yes.
I have never read the print version but this audiobook was great. The narrator was wonderful and I can't wait to download the next one.
I can't pick one out, there were too many.
She is great. I've never listened to her before but I will put her on my favorite list.
Some part were a little beyond my verson of normal and not something I would do or want to do but the way it was told kept looking forward to what would happen next.
Home is where my books are.
I was going to skip this one since I wasn't really that interested in a storyline about Rock Stars and the women who love them -- but the reviews were pretty awesome, so I let the reviewers pick this one for me. (Thanks!)
A group of randy rock stars meet a Human Sexuality Professor in a hotel lounge and the fun starts! This book is witty, sweet and even romantic, but the sex scenes are in a class all their own. This has to be the hottest erotica series out there right now -- with great characters, an well written plot and a perfect reader. And did I mention the mind-blowing sex scenes?
Justine O. Keef's performance was pitch perfect, and her male characters were believable and sexy. Again, Wow!
Lock the door, turn off the phone, close the curtains and pour a glass of wine. Once you start Backstage Pass, you won't want any distractions!
Finally a strong sexy woman!!!! Really sexy sex stuff! And laugh out loud funny moments!! Brilliant! The reader did male and female voices perfectly!
"erotic and interesting"
I enjoyed the story and find the story of other peoples desires very intriguing even if they are not my own views, makes me wonder what mine would be if I thought about it enough
as first audio books experience it is a little difficult to compare but look forward to comparing in the future
none in particular but was very intrigued in the feelings of brian for the woman he fell in love with and the length he went to too make her happy
This was my first audio book and I was pleasantly surprised as I was dubious about audio and this book. However' I really enjoyed it. The actor was easy to listen to and characterized each character well. Great experience.
