Five stunning guys, one hot woman, and a feverish romance…

For him, life is all music and no play…
When Brian Sinclair, lead songwriter and guitarist of the hottest metal band on the scene, loses his creative spark, it will take nights of downright sinful passion to release his pent-up genius…

She’s the one to call the tune…
When sexy psychologist Myrna Evans goes on tour with the Sinners, every boy in the band tries to seduce her. But Brian is the only one she wants to get her hands on…
Then the two lovers’ wildly shocking behavior sparks the whole band to new heights of glory…and sin…


What I want to say about this book can’t be summed up that easily.  The words I want to use, I will refrain from using so you will get this–SMOKING HOT JALAPENOS!

I was wary of reading a book focused on a band.  Every book I have read about rock and roll stars have been a little corny.  I thought that this was going to be another one of those with just a little hubba-hubba mixed in.  Boy was I wrong!

The Sinners rock guitarist, Brian Sinclair, meets psychologist Myrna Evans in a hotel bar.  After a weekend fling together, Myrna decides to join the band on tour to find out more about the behavior of groupies.  They both have many obstacles to overcome if they want a relationship to work.  Now that we have the main part of the plot mapped out, lets get to the main attraction of the book!

Can I just say that the images of the hot foreplay and sex are permanently seared into my brain. It was so hot and sensual that my brain nearly fried with each sexy scene.  The author did an amazing job of making the attraction hot and sexy, without going overboard that you find in most erotica books.  Thank goodness I read this book in the comforts of my own home to where people could not see the always obvious flush on my cheeks.

What is even more exciting is the fact that each band member is going to get their own book! I can’t wait to read about the rest of them in future installments of the series.  If I had to describe this book in one line, it would be this– A plot that rocks with sexy romps that keep on rolling! 


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf For Rereading! 5 STARS

    So going on my wishlist! I haven’t read too many books with rock n’ roll mixed with erotica, but this definitely sounds like a good start. Thanks for posting your review. 🙂
