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!!
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.
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.
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.
Well what can you say but awesome series. I waited a long time for this book to come out so that I read the series in order. You need to read this before Double Time or else you will have spoilers. I have to say out of all the books in this series this was probably my least favourite. Having said that, I still loved the book but it is hard when all the others are so good. If you compare them then this book falls a little short. The part that I did not like in this was Eric and Reb's special brand of kink. I guess I don't get role playing. Some of it was funny but other parts I just thought were dumb. I guess you expect a little dumb from Eric but it was not my favourite. Other parts were great and you just have to cheer for the under dog Eric no matter what. Again I liked the fact that all the characters reappear in this story and that it picks up from where it left off. I also think that it was more about the sex than a really indepth story line. I think the other books had more of a story line than this one. But in the end who cares as the book is still great and makes you not want to stop listening The narrator rocks like no one else. She really makes you feel like each character is an individual and her male voices are great. So if you are thinking about this book, and have not read the others you need to start at book one as they all follow one another. Even though it says Double Time is before this book it was released in the wrong order so don't skip ahead. I say this is really worth the credit.
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'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.
Always ready for my next smutty story.
Awwwwe Eric is so sweet. It was nice to get to read this story about him and get to know him better. In previous stories I really didn't think I would be so interested in reading an entire story about Eric, but I'm pleasantly surprised.
So happy that he found Rebeka. They are really perfect for each other.
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 Eric and Rebekah and their story was very enjoyable. I’m not much on love triangles but fortunately Rebekah’s interest in seducing Trey doesn't last for too long.
Rebekah is a sound board operator and the little sister of Dave, the sound board operator that was working for the rock band Sinners. Dave was injured badly in a wreck of the tour bus so arrangements are made for Rebekah to fill in for her big brother until he’s back on his feet. Rebekah had 1 serious relationship with a guy named Isaac. He helped her through a bout of cancer so Rebekah will always be grateful to him but he also made her feel like less of a woman since her recovery which caused their split. Rebekah has always had the hots for Trey (a guitarist in Sinners) so when she gets the chance to work for the band she’s determined to seduce Trey.
Eric is the drummer for the rock band Sinners. He was born to a drug addict that abandoned him up at 4 years old and he ended up in the foster system. Eric’s life wasn't great but he found a love of music to give him something to hold on to. Eric has a big heart and tends to try to hold on to those he cares about, even when doing so isn't always the best thing for him.
Eric and the band go to see Dave in the hospital to talk about the sound board operator job. When they arrive, Eric is flummoxed by the appearance of an angel...well at least Dave’s sister. Eric pretty much falls for Rebekah right off the bat, noting that they both had the same shade of blue died in their hair so it must be fated. Unfortunately, Rebekah’s infatuation with Trey becomes apparent very quickly. Because of his past, Eric has never felt very lovable and he’s very sad that Rebekah is so interested in Trey. As soon as Rebekah joins them on tour, it’s clear just how much Eric and her have in common (starting with a love of classic cars). Eric is also thrilled with the fact that Rebekah doesn't seem to have a problem with his tendency to always tell the truth and say everything that comes in to his head. Rebekah finds that she likes Eric but has been so stuck on Trey that she has a hard time shifting gears at first. To be honest, I was a bit annoyed with Trey because he knew that Eric wanted Rebekah and I couldn't tell if he was trying to help or hinder Eric’s progress with Rebekah (and if he was helping I wasn't too hot on him methods). Thankfully, it doesn't take too long before Rebekah shifts her interest completely over to Eric.
Eric is thrilled once he has Rebekah’s attention but there are still some issues for both of them. Eric tends to like to watch sexual acts instead of participating because…well let’s just say that he has a hair trigger. Rebekah is freaked about the possibility of letting a man have sex with her because of some body issues her Ex left her with. This is where I really liked Eric’s complete honesty because it helped their situation very much. Rebekah decided that she liked his honesty and tried to be very honest with him in return. Because of this, they were able to talk things out between them and were able to come together in a free and honest exploration of their wants and desires. It also helped because Rebekah was feeling really unsexy after her Ex and Eric’s uncensored comments about how hot she was and how much he wanted her really helped her and made her feel special and wanted. The relationship between them isn't perfect but they do really well together, especially when others aren't causing problems for them. Obviously, there are some outside forces that try to cause issues for them but they do get past these obstructions and end the story starting their well-deserved HEA.
This was a very enjoyable story. I really liked Rebekah and Eric. They're both such fun and enjoyable characters that I really liked seeing them together and the interactions between them. I think my only real complaint is that I didn't like the whole Trey/Rebekah/Eric love triangle situation in the beginning and I was glad when it was resolved. Overall, it was a very good story and I'm looking forward to more of the series. I’d recommend this book. :D
