THE SINNERS ARE BACK – Reissue of the first in a sizzling rock-star romance series from USA Today bestselling author Olivia Cunning

It’s been months since Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist for the famous rock band, The Sinners, composed anything. Unable to write the music that once flowed so naturally, Brian is lost without his musical mo-jo. But when sexy psychology professor Myrna Evans comes on tour to study groupie mentality, Brian may have found the spark he needs to re-ignite 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?

Now here’s an excerpt from Backstage Pass! ❤

The crowd chanted, “Sinners, Sinners, Sinners,” for several minutes until the stadium lights came up. Myrna made a beeline to the backstage area. She spotted Brian going through the door behind the stage area that led to the dressing rooms. She flashed her backstage pass at a security guard and dashed after him.

“Brian.”

He paused and turned in her direction. His smile, meant only for her, dazzled. She ran to him and wrapped him in an enthusiastic embrace. Her ears were numb from the loud music, but every other sense was heightened. The scent of his sweat made her tremble.

“You are amazing,” she sputtered.

He popped the earplugs out of his ears. “Don’t get all fan girl on me now.”

He wrapped an arm around her shoulders and walked her past the dressing room. As they passed, Myrna caught a glimpse of Sed, minus his shirt, surrounded by several girls.

“Where are we going?” Myrna asked.

“Trust me, you don’t want to go anywhere near Sed for a while. He’s in one of his moods. We’re going to the bus. Is that okay?”

She nodded. If he asked her to walk on hot coals, she would have eagerly complied. And why was that? She didn’t understand her own psychology at the moment.

He kissed her temple. “Did you like your solo?”

“How could I not? All I could think about was you making love to me when you wrote it.”

He chuckled. “I was thinking the same thing.”

“You were?”

“What else would I be thinking about?”

“Five thousand girls screaming your name?”

“There were five thousand dudes screaming my name, too. Not exactly a turn on. Besides, I only care about one woman screaming my name.”

Her heart warmed as he squeezed her closer. They exited the building to a crowd milling outside the tour buses. The fans cheered when they recognized Brian, but the security guards kept them at bay until he could get Myrna safely up the steps and on the tour bus.

“I need a shower,” he said. “But I think I’ll lie down for a bit first.”

Her body thrummed, pumped full of adrenaline. She didn’t know why he needed to lie down. Unless…

“Yeah, I think you should lie down. Can I join you?”

“What do you think?” He looked down at her. “I’m getting sweat all over your dry-clean-only suit.”

“It’s disposable as far as I’m concerned.”

He grinned. “Seeing me on stage really worked you up, didn’t it?”

“What do you think?”

She unfastened the buttons of her suit jacket and shrugged it off her shoulders. She tossed it on a random pile of jeans and black clothes before working on the small buttons of her silver, satin blouse.

Brian took her hand. “Come on. No telling when a roadie or Eric will show up.”

He led her to the back of the bus and through a door at the end of a narrow passage. They entered a small bedroom, its space dominated by a queen-sized bed.

“I’m not sure how clean the sheets are,” he murmured, helping her with her buttons now. “We’re slobs.”

“Wonderful. All of you.”

He paused, looking into her eyes in the dim interior of the room. The only light came from the streetlamps outside, filtering through the metal blinds. “Oh God, you aren’t lusting after Sed now, are you?” he asked. “I lose more women that way. They see him on stage and—”

She covered his lips with her fingers. “I’m lusting after you, Master Sinclair.”

“Don’t call me that here,” he said against her fingers.

“Brian.” She replaced her fingers with her lips, kissing him hungrily.

Her shirt fluttered to the floor. His fingers moved to the fastening of her skirt. He unzipped it and it dropped to the floor around her feet. He glanced down her body with a sexy smile on his lips. “I’m glad you decided I was worthy to see what was under that suit. Very nice.” Collapsing face down on the bed, he belly-crawled to the pillows and sighed in exhaustion. “I need a nap.”

She climbed up on the bed with him and straddled his body. She tugged his shirt off and sat back on his thighs, massaging his shoulders and back.

Brian sighed contentedly. “Exactly what I need, Myr. Thank you.”

She leaned forward to kiss the skin along his shoulders, her tongue darting out to collect the salt of his sweat.

“I can use some of that, too,” he murmured drowsily.

“Do you want me to leave you alone? I can tell you’re tired.”

“No, I like your company. This is nice. I don’t have the energy to devour you. You’re probably disappointed in me.”

“Never.” She took his hand in hers and massaged the base of his fingers and his palm.

“Mmmmmm.”

She lowered her head to kiss his fingers. “These are magical.”

“We both know there’s only one magical body part in this bed. I think the fans liked your solo, Myr.”

“Your solo.”

“That’s all you, baby. I just play it.”

She smiled. She knew she didn’t deserve any credit. “You’re sweet.”

“Shhhhh. Don’t tell anyone…”

He slept. So much for an hour of amazing sex before they had to go their separate ways. Myrna stretched out beside him, her hand tracing lazy paths up and down his back. Was she really here? This had undoubtedly been the most amazing day of her life. And even if she never saw this remarkable man again, she’d never forget him.

Toni wants to be an insider.
Logan just wants inside her.

She’s finally ready to rock…

Toni Nichols set aside her dreams to raise her little sister, but now she’s reaching for the stars as the creator of a revolutionary interactive biography about Exodus End. She’s on tour with the rock band to immerse herself in their world, but how will she ever gain the trust of four veteran superstars who’ve been burned by the media before? Nobody said this was going to be easy. Then again, good things can come in hard packages.

He’s always ready to roll…

Adrenaline junkie Logan Schmidt lives for the rush of playing his bass guitar before thousands of screaming fans. When he’s not performing onstage or in the bedroom, he’s looking for his next thrill in extreme sports. So why does a sweet, innocent journalist get his heart pumping and capture his full attention? Is Toni the real deal or just digging up dirt on his band? Logan’s eager to rock Toni’s world and roll her in the sack, but when she starts to get too close to his heart, she takes her insider look to a place he may never be willing to go.

I LOVE Olivia Cunning!!! I’ve been a fan since I first read the Sinners on Tour series (which will forever be my favorite rock star book series ever) and fell in love with each and every one of her characters. Her writing is so fantastic, full of heart and humor – you just can’t not love her books! And did I mention how freaking HOT her books are!? I don’t know how Olivia Cunning balances the humor with the sex, but she does it perfectly.

So. Insider. This book – and the Exodus End series – has been a long time coming, and I’d been eagerly awaiting it ever since finishing the Sinners on Tour series. To say I had high expectations would be an understatement. And guess what? I LOOOOVED Insider! It. Was. AMAZING! I totally adored it – Logan and Toni were so much fun (AND HOT) to read about! I’m actually really glad Olivia Cunning choose to write about Logan first rather than Dare (Trey’s brother), even though I’m still dying to get my hands on Dare’s story. I freaking missed the Sinners world so much, so I absolutely LOVED experiencing it again, this time with Exodus End!!!

He lifted a hand and touched her cheek with his fingertips. His thumb brushed her trembling lips. “A sweet lamb left to fend for herself in a den of wolves. Whatever will we do with you?”

Toni Nicols has the enviable job of following around the members of Exodus End in order to write their interactive biography. She needs to tour with them all while trying to win their trust and individual stories. The thing is, Toni is woefully unprepared to be around the hottest, sexiest rock stars in the world. She’s had little to no social life, since her life revolved around taking care of her sister, and… she’s a virgin. I adored Toni – she’s sweet, awkward, and completely relatable.

Logan Schmidt is known not only as the bassist for Exodus End, but also as an adrenaline junkie as well. I loved Logan – he’s a daredevil, he’s hilarious in a dorky way, and so freaking sweet to Toni. He doesn’t understand why someone as awkward and innocent as Toni is intrigues him, but she does, and he can’t stop thinking about her or getting into her pants. The chemistry is explosive between him and Toni, and since they’re in such close proximity to each other on the tour bus, they just can’t resist each other.

Was she really going to lose her virginity? To a gorgeous rock god with a huge cock? Nice. That drunk stranger in college who’d made her feel like the homeliest woman on the planet could bite her fat ass. Logan Schmidt was going to have sex with her, and she was going to love every minute of it.
She assumed.

Logan and Toni begin a sort of friends-with-benefits relationship, which was so fun to read. Hot damn, the things Logan does to Toni. Olivia Cunning is one of my favorite erotica authors, and she definitely doesn’t disappoint in Insider. I believe this is the first virgin heroine Olivia Cunning has written, so it was such a fun change to have the hero teach everything related to sex with the heroine.

He grinned devilishly. “I need far more than twenty-four hours to do all the things I want to do with you.”
His lips brushed the side of her neck, and she sucked in a shaky breath.
“Mmm,” he murmured. “There are so many things I want to show you, Toni. Teach you.”

I really loved the character growth for both Toni and Logan. Toni is pretty clueless (in an adorable way), but she grows in self-confidence and learns to stand up for herself and for what she wants – which is Logan. She falls fast for this sexy rock star, though who wouldn’t? Logan was definitely the typical manwhore rock star prior to Toni, but once he falls for Toni, he falls so hard in love with her. I loved seeing Logan fumbling around with his feelings, but also knowing that he would do anything for Toni. Logan is such a sweetheart!

Maybe love was the adrenaline rush that had been missing from his life all these years.

If you haven’t read Olivia Cunning’s rock star books, you are seriously missing out. She is one of THE best erotica authors I’ve ever has the pleasure of reading, and she manages to write scenes that have you fanning yourself one moment, then laughing out loud the next. The characters in this rock star world are so real and full of life – I absolutely loved reading Toni and Logan’s book, and also getting to know the other members of Exodus End (DARE!!). If you’re a fan of Sinners, you’ll get to see some of them in Insider!

Insider was an absolute delight to read. It was hilarious, deliciously sexy, and so much fun – just perfect. And now I can’t WAIT for the other band members to get their books!

The Exodus End series is a SPINOFF of the Sinners on Tour series. Though you don’t have to read Sinners before reading Insider, I highly recommend it (because they’re just that good).
