From the moment he lays eyes on the Sinners' new soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she's too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention. Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy.
But Eric makes her laugh and his constant attention makes her feel sexy and irresistible - exactly what she needs after the things her last lover said to her. A woman who gives as much as she takes, Rebekah makes Eric feel like a total stud - exactly what he needs after surviving a decade of watching the incredibly talented members of the Sinners from the wings.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
This is the 4th book of the series, we finally get Eric Stick's story. This book has all of the great necessary qualities... good story, funny banter, hot romance, and a huge variety of all kinds of kinky erotica. The minute Eric sees Rebekah, he’s convinced fate has brought her to him. Even though he sees her attraction to Trey, he can’t help but try to make her his. If anyone ever asked me what sizzlin hot series I could recommend, I wouldn't hesitate to say the Sinners on Tour Series by Olivia Cunning. She is the ultimate queen of smokin hot Rock Star books!!
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
This was an exciting series for me. I loved all the the stories some better than others. It was great to listen to Eric's full story and see what he is really made of. You got bits and pieces of Eric in all of the stories, but this one clearly shows who he is. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. Maybe I just didn't want it to end. It was clearly bitter sweet.
I am truly sorry this is the end of the Sinners tour. I am sad, I hope OC do more books that are just as good as this series. I can't remember ever being so pleased with an entire series where I was totally into the book and the lives of the characters so much in fact I had anxiety waiting for the next installment.
Eric's story should have been put out before Trey's story so I listen to them out of order. Nonetheless still sad it's a done deal.
Eric and Reb were perfect for each other and it was great to see Eric finally get his lady. It cost him some pain in the process. It was interesting to see how the story unfolded, with Reb's mother issues and of course her former boyfriend not being who she thought he was and the sneaky things he did and his secret. I don't want to give it away. I didn't see that coming. This story has all the stuff the rest had, love, sex and drama. You see a very vulnerable side of Eric.
Poor Rebecca thought she wanted Trey who she had been pinning for until she realized Eric was the real one for her. Trey noticed what her old boyfriend and family friend was about, and helped the situation along the way. Some of the others were briefly around but not enough for me.
You will not be disappointed.
Definitely believe the hype from all the other reviewers. This is a great series! This series is chock full of explicit sex and crass humor, so if that's not your taste, this is not the book/series for you. All others on board for that type of book....sit back and enjoy!
In my real life I'm not that much of a 'rocker chick' but I was sold on this rock band and their sexy ways after chapter one of book one. It's gotten progressively better and better with each installment. Eric's story was full of humor which was to be expected. And in true Cunning style the sex was hot, but, much more tender and fun than in the previous stories which was befitting of his character. One thing that each of the books has offered is a peak at life beyond the stage, and Eric's life was pretty sad, so it was nice to see him find love and his HEA.
If you're just tuning in to the Sinners series it's worth it (credit worthy) to get the whole series and start from the beginning, it will give all the characters and their various interactions much more depth and meaning. I know that others have commented on the books being released out of order, but I think its only one that was out of order, so it doesn't ruin the flow at all.
Say something about yourself!
I can't believe the same author who wrote the first books in the series actually wrote this! What happened? The writing is silly and juvenile and Rebekah is annoying! The narration was also worse than in previous books. Her speech was "wooden" and lacked enthusiasm. And for a book about the Sinners, there was so little actually happening with the band. Disapointing!
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
I so loved Eric's and Rebekah's story. This book has it all. Very Hot and engaging sex, lot's of funny parts and loads of emotions including some sadness. We get to visit all of our favourite's from previous books and meet a few extra's mixed in for this awesome story. As always Justine done a superb job narrating and Oliver wrote another Perfect addition to this consuming series. I know everyone who's addicted to Sinners are going to just love this book.
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
But what a great journey it was - full of passionate mentally tortured men and women desperately trying to fit together, overcome some terrible obstacles (and people) all in the frantic hope of keeping hold of their chosen lovers.
Eric and Rebekah were such likeable characters who hit it off from the start (with the help from Trey) as they were both quirky and had the same interests (and hairdo's) but both were so vulnerable too because of their sex issues. However, they help each other to heal and overcome their different problems in such a sweet, caring, funny, sexy and passionate way. They never gave up - despite a crazy Mom, a crazier ex boyfriend as well as the threat of Cancer but together they proved they were meant to be together.
Great series, fantastic book, really HOT HOT HOT listen, with a bit of a recap of the other members and finally what Eric said to Rebekah near the end when the threat was back was just soooo tender and touching.
Worth a credit? YES for this book and YES YES YES YES for all the others.
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.
This has been the best Rock Star series I have ever read/listened too. I hate it that this is the last one and I hope OC has allot more coming. I love JO's narration skills. She is one of the best narrator's I've heard. This is a fantastic wrap up for the series, even though Book 5 came out before this one. You will not be disappointed with Eric's story. If you haven't tried this series you do not know what your missing and you need to get them all!!
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!
Wicked Beat is Eric Sticks story, the Sinners' drummer, when Eric sees Rebekah he has an instant attraction.
Though it appears at first Rebekah's only has eyes for Trey Mills, you know the sexy guitarist both men and women lust after.
If you remember Eric from the prior books he prefers to "watch" so his desire to "touch" is fun to watch him process and hysterical to watch the other band members deal with.
As the story unfolds the use of Trey to pull these two together spoke volumes to me about not just Eric but Trey. Trey sees these to belong together and his actions throughout the book to help ensure these two are together range from heartwarming to in typical Olivia Cunning fashion hot as well.
Rebekah is taken aback to find yes she lusts after Trey but she is drawn to by Eric, his sense of humor, the goofy sense of humor they share, she is developing a deep connection to him. This was wonderful for me, it highlighted the difference between desiring a star from afar for his talent and looks and falling in love with someone for their soul and how they touch yours.
The connection Eric and Rebekah feel is something the reader can almost touch. Ms Cunning masterful use of words opens up Rebekah heart and body to feels she thought she lost forever. No, I won't tell you why you need to read the book.
Those who read my reviews know I love Ink with a story; well the use of Ink in this book as one of the best I have seen, it not only highlight the connection these two share but also Eric's musical genus something he seems to hide a bit.
Eric and Rebekah's backstory weave together almost perfectly, the future it will creates provides both what they need in a happy.
As with all the books in the series Justine O.Keef was outstanding in the delivery of the story.
grain80 Love great romance. Especially erotica.
I was Really excited for Eric's story and his background with voyeurism. however, this story is sooooo awful. when listening, him and Rev sounds like total morons. like 12 year olds seeing genitalia for the first time. it was just THAT BAD. Rebecca's background is explained, and you can almost respect her, then she dresses up and pretends she is some other character..... again! Jesus H!!!!!!! I get it they like to pretend they are someone or something else, we do not need a detailed description of each encounter. I PRAY tre is better......
First of all, the voices of the two main characters are SO annoying! Un-ending Wayne's World meets Super dumb bimbo. Now imagine those sex scenes...Ugh! Not Hot!
I like the narrator's other work, but this one was a miss.
I knew Eric's story would be a little off formula since he's such a clown, but I honestly thought the author would make it work. Instead, this book seems to be written by a bad ghostwriter. The story is barely tolerable, especially the last 5 hours where the author sloppily contrives drama by making the main characters even more stupid. Really, it was like stupidity mixed with amnesia.
I got through it because I want to hear Trey's story next, but I wish I could get the time back. I'm definitely getting my credit back.
