“Play it cool, Myrna. If you start spazzing out like a fan girl,
they’ll tell you to get lost.”
I think I died and went to erotica heaven while reading this book. I don’t even know how I can begin to describe to you how incredibly awesome this book was. There were a few times while reading this book that I had to urge to jump in a bathtub full of cold water to cool off. No, a bathtub of cold water wouldn’t have been enough to cool me off. I would have needed to jump into the arctic waters of the North Pole to get my body back to its regular 98.6 degrees. Olivia Cunning’s Backstage Pass will knock you off your feet, leave you drooling like a broken faucet and think you’ve lost your damn mind. IT’S.THAT.GOOD!
“She could pretend she wanted to meet them because of her seminar. In truth, she loved their music. They weren’t too hard on the eyes either. The definition of exactly her type. Wild.”
College Professor Myrna Evans had just finished her presentation on Human Sexuality when she notices a rowdy group of men at the bar of the hotel she’s staying at. After taking a good look at the men, she realizes that they are actually the super rock band, The Sinners. Not only does Myrna find the group of men to be utterly delicious, she’s actually a huge fan of the group and uses their music in her presentations. She musters up the courage to approach the band and finds that it was quite comfortable to sit around and chat with them. On the way back up to her room, Myrna invites the bands lead guitarist, Brian Sinclair, follow her up. Although he was already quite inebriated, Brian was more than willing to pay a visit to one of his many adoring female fans. Except that when he reaches Myrna’s room all she’s willing to give up is her remedy to cure a hangover. Talk about majorly teasing both Brian and I!!! The next morning is a bit more promising because Myrna is awakened by Brian nibbling on her neck and is bringing her to orgasm within a matter of seconds with his talented fingers. Guess those magic fingers weren’t just made for strumming a guitar!!! After a multi-orgasmic morning Myrna and Brian can’t deny the electrifying chemistry between them and soon Myrna finds herself on tour with the Sinners. Myrna and Brian soon embark on the most erotic and exhilarating relationship that I’ve had the pleasure of reading about.
“It’s a f*cking beast, Brian. You’re going to tear me in half with that thing!” He looked stunned at first, but then laughed. “The only way to save yourself from my beast is to put it in your mouth.”
Saying that this book was hot would be an understatement. Backstage Pass is more like molten lava, scorching hot and has got to be one of the kinkiest books I’ve read. Like I said earlier, Myrna and Brian are electrifying together and even with the tremendous amount of sex these two had, I still couldn’t get enough of them. This book had everything from sex on top of the dining room table, sex in the bath tub, butt plugs, sex in the car/tour bus/outside the tour bus, hand job on a Harley, spanking, chains and a threesome. You name it this book probably has it. Now even with all the sexy times in this book, it wouldn’t have been as satisfying if I wasn’t invested on the couple. Myrna and Brian are both very interesting characters and I really enjoyed the time these two spent together.
“She was too busy coming to terms with the idea that she wasn’t just hopelessly, madly, deeply in lust with Brian “Master” Sinclair. She might actually love him. An idea that did not sit well with her.”
Myrna is a highly intelligent and successful but carries a lot of emotional scars from a former abusive relationship. She was married to a man who looked perfect on paper but in reality was controlling and verbally abusive. So when she meets Brian, all she was looking for was someone to help play out all her sexual fantasies. I must say that Myrna had a lot of balls because she was not shy about what she wanted and needed from a lover and was able to go toe-to-toe with the other guys in the band. Most women would probably cower when dealing with a group of horny rock stars like the Sinners, but Myrna held her own against them and even threw out quite a few jabs at the guys. I did find myself getting a little frustrated with her when Brian would show a little more affection towards her and she’d remind him (and the rest of the guys in the band) that she and Brian were “just having a good time”. It was clear that their relationship wasn’t just some awesome summer romance but then on the other hand I understood why she kept her feelings and emotion guarded.
“Are you whining because I have to work?” “No, I’m whining because you’d rather work than spend a week in L.A. with me.” Under his breath, he muttered, “Why do I always sound like the chick in this relationship?”
Now as for Brian “Master” Sinclair, you won’t be able to help yourself from loving this guy. Even with his bad boy rock star persona, Brian is the biggest sweetheart in the world. A hopeless romantic at heart, Brian wasn’t just about hooking up with as many women as he possibly could. Not saying that he didn’t take advantage of his fame but after being burned and used by one fame seeking groupie to another, Brian was in search of that one special girl. The instant he felt a connection with Myrna, he wasn’t shy about his feelings and didn’t let his band members ribbing stop him from per suing Myrna. At times Brian did come off looking like a love sick puppy but imagining some rock star celebrity pining for a “normal” woman was too cute. He’s definitely the type of artist who is moved by love and I loved the way he found inspiration when writing music. I won’t say how his writing process goes but I definitely wished I was his muse instead of Myrna.
“What did you guys do with yourselves before I joined the tour?” “We were barely alive,” Trey said. “Drowning in our own filth. Malnourished. Scrawny. Anemic. On our last limb.”
As much as I loved all the sexy times that Brian and Myrna had, I think that what really made this book stand out is The Sinners themselves. This five-member rock band was so much fun and I really enjoyed reading about their tour life. Aside from Brian, who is the lead guitarist, The Sinners consists of lead singer Sedric “Sed” Lionheart, rhythm guitarist Trey Mills, bass guitar Jace Seymour and drummer Eric Sticks. I have a few friends who are in bands and the way these guys acted is exactly what I would have imagined what a bunch of horny dudes would be like on the road. These guys brought so much laughter with their antics and how they constantly ribbed each other had me laughing out loud quite a few times. There was a scene where Myrna was fed up and tired of the filthy state of their tour bus that she finally had to put her foot down and made them start cleaning up after themselves. The way they bitched and complained about cleaning but then perked up when Myrna added the incentive of cooking them home cooked meals if they cleaned up was just how I imagined these dudes reacting. Their trip to a grocery store was such a hoot and you almost forget these guys were famous rock stars.
Backstage Pass was so much more than your typical erotica romance book. Backstage Pass had a lot of great banter, humor, romance, music and obviously plenty of hot sex scenes. Olivia Cunning was able to encompass everything that I imagined to happen while on tour with a famous rock band. In real life, Cunning is a huge rock music fan and it shows in her writing. I was really impressed with her knowledge of music, instruments and song writing. Excuse my pun but Backstage Pass totally ROCKED and if you’re wanting a fun, exciting and hot read then you’ll have to add this to the top of your to be read list.
