Review: Backstage Pass by Oliva Cunning

Backstage Pass is going to be, hands down, the hardest book for me to review.  This is because it will be so difficult for me not to moon over the whole book and give away all of the details.  I have re-read this book about 4 times now it is so good.

Human Sexuality Professor, Myrna Evans, wants nothing but a weekend of hot, no-strings-attached sex with Sinners' sensual lead guitarist, but Brian Sinclair is looking for something more permanent than a one-night stand. Unable to compose music for months, when Brian makes love to uninhibited Myrna, he hears exquisite guitar riffs and finger-burning solos. In Myrna, he's found his muse.     taken from the author's site

Each of the characters (and not just Brian and Myrna, but all of the band members AND the roadies) have amazingly developed characteristics and profiles.  I love how they really are their own person, and Cunning really lets you know each of their little quirks.  I honestly fell in love with each of the band members.  I cannot say I love one more than the other, because they are each that amazing.

The plot.  Oh, the glorious plot!  So good, so yummy, so hot, and so much sex!  It was a great plot : )  If you haven't guessed it already, I am now a HUGE fan of Olivia Cunning and her work.  I am just so happy that I found her books, and so glad I received an ARC to review. : ) 

I just cannot say enough times how extremely well written this book was. It was as if Olivia was writing the book specifically for me.  Backstage Pass kept me running through the pages at the exciting points and slowing down when it took a sweet turn.  It was just so good.

I am looking very forward to the next book in the series SINNERS ON TOUR to come out.  The next book to come out, according to Olivia's website is Rock Hard, Sed's book, which is set right now to come out in April of 2011!  Can you say excited?  It seems like a really long time, but if I have to wait that long, I will, and I will be one of the first people in line to buy it when it hits the shelves.

**I recieved an ARC to review.  I did not get paid for my review.  My opinions are 100% my own unless otherwise stated.**

***** KEEPER!!
Heat Rating= Erotic / watch out, here comes some book porn!

Until Next Time,
Happy Reading!

I'm jealous that you've gotten to read this book! I'm getting my copy in a week or two... as soon as I can go get my hot little hands on it.

Your review makes me even more anxious to read it! Thank you for not spoiling any of the plot points, etc but still managing to convey just how good it is.

Olivia is a great writer and I predict a long and prosperous career in front of her.
