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 look for books with ideas on multiple levels, a good story, and a bit of fun.
Ms Cunning (a more obvious pseudonym I couldn't imagine) has given me a treat. She manages to set a fun series of erotic encounters into an authentic context, and then add an engaging romance into the mix.
Myrna's adventures with Bryan give the reader plenty of excitement. However the budding relationship between them, hindered by the shadow of her past, keeps everything 'real' and uncertain. I had a good time listening to this story - thanks Ms Cunning.
OK, thanks to this book I have another favorite author to add to my list and another favorite genre to read - rocker romance. Loved this book, love the Sinners and look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series. Loved the interaction between the band members and between Myrna & the band. So happy she was able to rise above that awful, sick, disgusting, ex-husband and so happy Brian never gave up on her and them. And I loved all the humor! Found myself laughing out load a lot! The scene where Myrna makes them clean the bus is hysterical. Hope this continues in the rest of the series. I listened to this while exercising - it helped me increase my time, distance and frequency. Kept me wanting to walk more so I could listen more! LOL
Will do anything for books!
This is great Brian and Myrna are great, I was sad for Brian several times but I enjoyed it, and it was Hot as Hell!!! Damn, I need to learn some things from Myrna! Okay but I do have to say, Myrna??? WTH kind of name is that? Okay, that was my only real complaint.
Have you ever wanted to be that special girl that magically catches someones attention who is everything that you want in a guy: sexy, lean, hard, burning good looks, talented, genuine, uninhabited, famous "Sinners" lead guitarist and totally into to you...will do anything for you but never loses his edginess which keeps you wanting him....And you are beautiful, smart and talented, and strongly independent and he gets it and adores it....And wonderful luscious sex when no ones tires...
Just a really good read, the story is totally believable, makes me think back to the good ole day... and Justine O. Keefe's performance is spot on, the guys sound like real guys while Myrna is sexy and smooth.. Go ahead READ IT...
Okay when I spent my credit I was desperate to have something to listen to when making a trip with my daughter whose music DRIVES ME NUTS. :) Didn't expect to absolutely LOVE it! Great characters, well written and good narration. Love it when I find a new author paired with a good narrator. Spend your credit with confidence!!!!
All five guys! Cannot wait to hear the rest in the series
I am soooo fussy when it comes to narration, it makes or breaks a book for me and I am either all in or flick it off - Ms O.Keef's narration kept me there to the end.
going to get every other book in the series!!
Audiobooks are the new black! .................... PNR enthusiast + a real sucker for books with bad boys.
When I started listening to this book, I thought it was a bit shallow. Just a bunch of hot sexy scenes, but when you get further in the book, you really get to know the characters in the band "Sinners". They are very amusing, lovable and at times laugh-out-loud funny.
I think this is a gareat first book in the series. It has a fascinating and fun story with some sweet romance and a lot (and I mean A LOT) of really hot, steamy and sexy scenes.
To top it off; the narrator does a fantastic job. She really brings the charaters to life and makes it all come together in harmony. I really enjoy narrators when they are not monotone and flat. Justine O. Keef is excellent and lively. She will definitely be put on my favorite-narrator list.
I think this book is great and it is well worth the credit if you like bad-ass rock stars, romance and hot sexy scenes.
One sex scene after another, loosly connected by - oh right - not much, and what there is improbable! Fifty Shades of Gray has a lot to answer for in the field of romance writing right now, authors seem to be forgetting the romance - and sex gets pretty boring without a good story around it. Don't waste your credit.
Ms. Cunning wove rock and sex and bad boys into a wicked fun story which kept me coming back for more
Made me need a fan & some water!
I have already listened to this book several times. The characters and story line kept my interest.
Each book focuses on one member of the band and is told from that person's perspective. The books should be read in order as the books build upon each other and cover some previous story line but told from another character's perspective. By the end of the series, I felt that I really knew these people. For some unknown reason, books 1,2,3, and 5 are currently available. Book 4 has an August 2013 release date.
Backstage Pass is among the top 10 audiobooks I've listened to. It is a great first book to the series.
I don't want to spoil anything, but the way Brian composed music the first time with Myrna
Well worth the credit!! If read in order, Double Take shouldn't be listened to until after Eric's book comes out. I REALLY hate that they are out of order.
