Publisher's Summary

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.

Book 2 -- Awesome

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

Rock Hard and Hot

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

Really good addition to the series. :D

4-4.5 stars

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

Fun Read with Roller Coaster Emotions

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

yes, because this series is good as a whole. all the guys in the band are good characters and they each deserve a book. also, this book was entertaining, just not my favorite.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

made Jessica not so mercurial. she was always exploding on Sed athat got on my nerve. i also would have Sed not take so much blame for the catastrophes in the book. they weren't all his fault.

What does Justine O. Keef bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she brings the characters to life. their emotions, expressions, everything. it's more than words.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

of course. and buy it =D

Follow the Sinners On Tour

Book two in the Sinners On Tour series ramps up the heat as readers watch another band member fall in love. Uniquely its own story but still bringing back all the same secondary characters, Rock Hard is hot but also all about the love. Maybe its just me but there really is nothing like a rock star falling in love.

Hot sex & rock n' roll!

Where does Rock Hard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoy this series. The narrator does a great job with the voices and they stay consistent from volume to volume. Even the mens' voices are consistent, so you immediately recognize who is "talking" before the narration tells you. Great characters, good story lines and steamy sex - who can ask for more?

What does Justine O. Keef bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voices are really good, especially the mens' voices - and they are consistent, so you can recognize each one immediately.
