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)
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.
I loved the character in Brian. He is so sweet and loves so hard
When Brian aske Mirna to marry him and she excepted.
I think she is very good in her narrations.
No not really
I have listend to all the other books I wish they were a fast as this one. It seems they take more time building the back ground the telling the story the way this one did.
My name is Mona and I am an infrequent reader. I found books on audio by accident. I am really enjoying it.
This book was about a female college professor who was forced by her past to live as an introvert. Myrna, the unconventional groupie that no one ever expects to be a fan of a rock band, becomes enthralled by having a one night stand with her favorite guitar player, Master Sinclair. Brian, the devastatingly gorgeous lead guitar player is heartbroken again after falling in love with a band groupie who sleeps with his band mate. By chance Myrna meets her favorite rock band and begins to live out her deepest sexual fantasies with her favorite music idol, Master Sinclair, and becomes his greatest fan. They become each other’s fantasies. The sex is awesome and not for the faint at heart. Brian lays it down and Myrna lets go of her inhibitions. Like every budding relationship, Brian and Myrna carry along baggage that somehow makes its way on the tour bus. The rest of the band, in one way or another, willing takes part in keeping the relationship intact.
This book fulfilled all my expectations. I can recall my groupie days, following my favorite band and finding it easy to slip into the mode of wanting to do anything just to be able to touch the idol of my affection. I remember standing alongside the stage trying to swindle a backstage pass out of the bodyguards. I remember working at certain venues because I knew my favorite artist would perform there. The lengths that people would go through as a groupie was overwhelming.
Olivia Cunning did a great job showing the depth of each character. I just knew that she would invest time in letting every character be known and have a purpose. Thus, reading the next book in the series is a must. Although Sinners is a fictional band they could be any music group or icon of any genre.
Author wrote the book with knowledge of the backdrop. Maybe she was a real groupie for research. Great book, great series, great author!!!
My husband was losing his patients with me because I wouldn't take my earbuds out for anything. I had to finish the book all at once. It was that good.
I love the whole Sinners storyline
I really like Eric
To be honest I think her voice was too mature sounding for the age of the characters in the book and I think she made Myrna sound like she was 50ish rather than in her 30's
I love the books so a big whopping yes :)
