The second book in the Sinners on Tour series features lead singer Sedric Lionheart, who became a playboy after his fiancee, Jessica, broke his heart. Trapped on a summer tour together for two entire months - but stubbornly desperate to stay apart - they find a million steamy reasons why they had that lovin' feeling in the first place.

Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Hot, Hard, Sexy
many, Sed, has turned out to BE very lovable! I listened out of order as I was interested in the characters and not just the sequence. this was a mistake. Each book builds to the next one very well. If you purchased out of order, no worries as Cunning blends so very well. She has done this the best so far of all the new authors I have purchased.
Eric, but he has so many funny lines. She does the main character in each book so very well and still manages to keep their personalities
I have been listening to all the sinners books straight through. I am going to miss these guys after Eric story is published.
Remember, these are Erotic romance and very hard core, if you do not like that genre, then
these are not for you.
Not sure if Cunning is going to write Dare's story, but he is hot and not to be missed
This story offers nothing more than a series of sexual encounters. I wanted to jump ahead of them but was afraid I would miss part of the actual story between Sed & Jessica. As the actual story unfolds it is not believable. Supposedly Jessica has lived through the multiple relationships of her mother, the sexual advances of her stepfather & every other man she comes across, has previously lived the life of Sed's fiancee and lived on the road with him & the band, and has the intelligence to earn a scholorship. Yet we are to believe the response she has to the events at the university? And really, the sexual chemisty between Sed & Jessica is not enough to carry a book. I want my credit back. I will never listen to this story again. And won't be getting the rest of this series.
Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Love this series ....so happy to keep going with book three.
This series really has good plots and story lines, really puts you in the life of rockers. Really enjoyed the HOT relationships too.
Great narration starting with book 1.....the voice changes are perfect for each band member and the women too ! Love this narration.
Very erotic , uninhibited sex descriptions, if you can't handle it ....DON'T READ IT !
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!
Backstage Pass: Sinners on Tour was such a good book, and I was really looking forward to this one. And it didn't disappoint, but I never really connected with Sed or Jessica, which is what kept me from giving it 5 stars. Brian Sinclair and Myrna (whose relationship gets continued...yeah!) were such good characters and a sweet but hot couple.
When I heard that Sed was next, I wasn't sure if I would be as interested in Rock Hard. He's a little hard to take in the first novel, but once we get in his head he does redeem himself. However, he continues to be overbearing, impulsive, and doesn't really think about the consequences. Jessica, for being a law student, didn't really think about what it would mean to date a lead singer of a popular rock band and its implications on her own ambitions.
However, it was well written, took only three days to get through, and the sex scenes were explosive. And now that Sed is done, we can focus on Jace, Eric, and Trey, who I think are all more compelling characters than Sed. Jace and his "preferences" should make for a very interesting next edition...can't wait!
I realize there is a audience for a book that is nothing but perpetual sex. I really like a story in there....This is a book about rockers doing what they reportedly do all the time. You may enjoy it...I didn't.
Was grateful that book 2 included more of the main characters from book 1. It felt more like a continuation rather than a hard stop between story lines!! On to book 3
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
Oh my God I loved this book and I love Sedric Lionheart. Sed is the lead singer of Sinners he is an egocentric narcissist who charms is way into groupies hearts and panties two or three at a time. Sed is also downright cruel and controlling and he has hurt Brian a lot by sleeping with all his girlfriends "except Myrna" never the less he is a talented performer and lyricist and very driven to take his band to the top and keep them their. Jessica Chase is the ex who broke his heart and gave bad is ring 2 years ago she was the one that got away. Sed and Jessica fell in love quickly, were engaged for a short period and because he didn't show support of her dream to attend law school she left, taking his heart with her. At the time of their short relationship the band was still struggling for success, money was tight and Sed was stressed, trying keep the Sinners afloat. There were a number of pressures that caused their break-up. But, in Jessica's eyes her fiancé wanted to control her life. Jessica is an extremely independent, intelligent, attractive and driven woman. In the 2 years since leaving Sedric Lionheart she has attended school working extremely hard to attain her goal of becoming a lawyer. One of Jessica's scholarships is running out so she must look for a way to earn a substantial amount of money over the summer break. Her best friend and roommate Beth convinces Jessica that working as an exotic dancer is the best way for her to earn money quickly. Admirably, Jessica refuses to get into debt or be reliant on anyone to pay her way. She therefore accepts a job as a stripper in a strip club. Little does she know that this is the catalyst that will bring her face to face with Sed again. I loved the story of Jessica and Sed he never stopped loving her and she still loves him also. Sed doesn't know how not to take control in situations. This book had some really hot sex scenes and their love of public sex has gotten them in a really sticky situation like the sex at The Venetian in Las Vegas was recorded and post online by a fan and it caused problems for Jessica at school. For Jessica Being around Sed triggers all of her lusty wants, and she can't deny that the attraction is still fierce between them. I love reading this series and I can't wait to read the rest I bought the box set and I thought that Trey's book was 5,but its next. I was also glad that Sed realized what Trey was up to and helped him
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 really good story. I liked both Jessica and Sed and rooted for them to get back together from the moment they broke up. This was a very good addition to the series and gives more attention to the other characters and showing the band dynamic.
Jessica is a law student and currently works as an exotic dancer for extra cash to cover what the financial aid and scholarships don't cover. She is beautiful and men are always fawning over her but she has no interest in them and just wished they'd leave her alone. The only man she wants is Sed. They were engaged 2 years before but when she got in to law school he demanded that she give up her dream of being a lawyer and just be there for him and whatever he wants. Jessica was heartbroken by Sed's lack of caring about what she wanted and decided to leave, hoping until the end that Sed would stop her but he didn't.
Sed is the lead singer of Sinners, a very popular rock band. He lives the rock lifestyle and basically sleeps with tons of girls…usually more than one at a time. This seems to be mostly because he can’t rouse enough interest in messing with most girls unless he makes things interesting with multiples. The one girl he's never had that issue with (and who he still loves) is Jessica but they broke up 2 years before. Sed didn't believe Jessica when she threatened to leave him...too caught up in his own overblown sense of worth to even think it was possible she could leave him. Sed couldn't accept that he was responsible for Jessica leaving but he never got over her and still misses her.
Brian and Myrna (from book #1, Backstage Pass) are getting married and the story begins just as Sed and the band are getting ready to head out for Brian’s bachelor party. Brian’s actually not too hot on being there but the guys are determined to have a last night of fun with Brian before he’s married. They find a table but things quickly go to hell when Sed recognizes the dancer as Jessica. Sed freaks, throwing his coat over her and trying to pull her off the stage and away from the other men’s gazes. He demands to know why she’s working there and isn't happy when she tells him she works there for money for school. For some reason Sed gets pissed at Jessica for not coming to him for money for school but I don’t see why she’d ever go to him for money since he demanded that she give up law school for him. In his anger, Sed goes a little overboard and pisses Jessica off and she stalks off. Because of the ruckus at the strip club, Jessica gets fired and also gets kicked out of her apartment because she didn't have any money to pay rent. Jessica goes to yell at Sed for ruining her life again but runs in to Myrna and they talk. Myrna talks to Jessica and when she finds out that Jessica is homeless and out of work, she offers Jessica a job as her assistant for her research project. Jessica isn't thrilled about having to deal with Sed but agrees because she’s desperate. Sed is shocked to find her there and also not thrilled about her being on the tour.
Despite their mutual enmity, it doesn't take long before their attraction (and jealousy) spikes, driving them in to each other’s arms. The sex is great but Jessica is still hurt and angry about the past and doesn't think Sed respects or cares about her. She tries to hate him but I think what she hated more was that she still wanted him and couldn't hate him. Sed realizes just how much he’s missed Jessica and he doesn't care if she hates him, he wants her back in his life anyways and he’ll work on improving her feelings towards him. They agree to a purely sexual relationship for the 2 months that Jessica is supposed to be working for Myrna (although Sed does plan to convince Jessica to like him and want to be with him again). The problem is that the rest of the band pretty much hates Jessica because of how hurt Sed was after they split and she doesn't understand why she’s so hated. It seems like they blame her for Sed acting like a jerk after they split up but this wasn't fair because Sed's actions should be on him and not her. It also doesn't seem like everyone knows the reason why Jessica left Sed (him wanting her to give up on law school and not caring about her wants and dreams) so it's not always easy for Jessica. She tried to keep Sed at a distance but as she spends more time with him and sees him dealing with his band mates and the issues that confront them, she starts to realize maybe he's not such a bad guy after all. It takes some time for them to work past their problems and there are outside issues that need to be taken care of as well, keeping Sed and Jessica quite busy and mired in some sticky drama. As things improve between them, Jessica starts being more supportive of Sed and they become a pretty good team which helps them deal with the issues confronting them. Their path to happiness isn't smooth but they do get their well deserved HEA in the end.
I really enjoyed this story. Jessica was a pretty good heroine and she wasn't perfect but I had no real complaints about her and liked her. Sed could be a bit of a jerk at times (esp about their earlier breakup) but he has a sweet heart and while tough on people, usually has their best interest in mind. They made a great couple once they got together and I loved how the story ended (so sweet!). I'm looking forward to reading more in the series. I'd recommend this story. Thumbs up! :D
