My Review

Simply put, this story was phenomenally well written. As it had been a while since I visited with the men and women of Sinners and Exodus End, I went back and re-read Double Time and Insider. So by the time that was done I was more than read for more of my favorite trio. I feel like in their first book they were just finding their footing and place in each other’s world. In this book though, there was so much more depth and raw emotions. I didn’t think it was possible, but I fell in love with Trey Mills that much more. He has to be one of the most well rounded, entertaining characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. There’s just something about his personality that draws you in, but it’s what bleeds through his heart that keeps you coming back for more. Coupled with Ethan’s alpha nature and vulnerability and Reagan’s fears of where she truly belonged, they developed into a trio unmatched by any other. Though their story is now complete, trust me when I say I would keep coming back for 20 more books. I don’t think I could ever get enough of them.

More than the characters themselves, I loved all the side relationships and interactions in this story. I adored how supportive their friends and family were. I officially want to become an honorary Mills sibling. The love between Trey and Dare was unparalleled to any other brother relationship I’ve ever read. I cannot wait to read Dare’s book and see his happy ending. If ever there were a more deserving person it would be him. He was the glue that held everyone together. His compassion and mama bear persona where Trey was concerned was enough to bring me to my knees. There were other scenes where the Sinners members had to be there emotionally for another member and it was then I remembered why I fell in love with each and every one of them. It made me wish I wasn’t on a reading schedule and had time to go back to read their stories again.

But when it all came down to it, this story was really about each person feeling like an outsider. Reagan from her temporary band, Ethan from their relationship, and Trey from a little bit of everything. Insecurities ran rampant in this book but with each obstacle tackled it just made them stronger. I loved that even when they were fighting they were so supportive of each other. Sure there were misunderstandings, but rather than letting them fester, they always talked it out. There was not one juvenile thing about them, even if it sometime seemed like it. They grew leaps and bounds from where they were in the first story. The steamy scenes were perfection and every bit as hot as her other books but with more of an edge and adventurous nature that hasn’t been in her books before. Get ready for some positions and acts that you don’t too often read and be prepared for your Kindle to overheat… Whew! If ever there was an author who was guaranteed to get you hot and bothered with each and every one of her books, it would be Olivia Cunning. What I love about her stories and characters though is that as excellent and scorching as her steamy scenes are, there is a legitimate story behind it all. She will always be my favorite rock star author for that very reason alone. So long as she keeps writing, I will always come back for more. Cannot wait for the next installment. We still have a long way to go with the men of Exodus End and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!






Insider (Exodus End #1)

Amazon US


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 highly recommend reading the Sinner’s On Tour series, of which Exodus End is a spin-off of. However, in the least, you should read the 5th book, Double Time, which is the beginning of Reagan, Trey, and Ethan’s story. It is undoubtedly some of the hottest literature I’ve ever read, as is the entire series. Check them out!

Sinners at the Altar

(Sinners on Tour #6)

Amazon US


Sinners need love too…

Sinners at the Altar includes four complete wedding stories, each about a different member of the rock band Sinners. These novellas are intended to be read after the Sinners on Tour series as each story is an epilogue to a different book in the series and thus riddled with major spoilers for not only individual books, but in some cases, the entire series.

When Sinners tie the knot, things don’t always go as planned.

Appetite for Seduction – Epilogue to Backstage Pass
Lead guitarist Brian Sinclair may have finally won Professor Myrna Evans heart and her consent to wed, but being part of a high-maintenance band might just ruin his long-anticipated wedding day and steamy wedding night. Will the couple ever find a moment’s peace or are some things more important than a night of uninhibited love-making?

Sweet Love of Mine – Epilogue to Wicked Beat
Drummer Eric Sticks is determined to marry sweet and sassy soundboard operator, Rebekah Blake, on the spur of the moment. But can he really offer the love of his life the wedding of her dreams in a small, unplanned ceremony? And can Rebekah offer Eric the one thing missing from his life that never realized he wanted?

Patience – Epilogue to Rock Hard
Lead singer Sed Lionheart never really wanted a big fancy wedding. He just wanted the girl. But his hot-tempered fiancee, Jessica Chase, has her heart set on a memorable ceremony and she is determined to persist through the aggravation to have the wedding of her dreams. The ceremony turns out to be memorable, all right, but not necessarily in the way they’d planned. Can the stressed-out couple recognize what’s really important on their wedding day, or is the honeymoon over before it even begins?

November Rain – Epilogue to Hot Ticket
Professional dominatrix Aggie “Mistress V” Martin is madly in love with bassist Jace Seymour, but she’s not in any real hurry to marry him. She’s not really the wife “type”. That all changes the moment she lays eyes on the perfect place to say “I do”. With more than one obstacle in their path to wedded bliss, will these two ever make it down the aisle or will everything fall apart at the whim of others?

They’ve already had their happily ever after…
Sinners’ lead guitarist Brian Sinclair is desperately in love with his new wife, Myrna. The only thing that could make their lives together more perfect is if they started a family.

The newlyweds decide to take an overdue honeymoon to Aruba while Brian waits for his band to go back on tour. Perhaps with a little stress-reducing relaxation and absolutely no rest–they do have a baby to make–Brian can give Myrna what she most desires.

But is someone trying to take their happily ever after away…
Not all is right in paradise. One of Brian’s overzealous fans keeps interrupting the happy couple’s alone time. And it seems there’s more behind this fan’s actions than just exuberance for one of his favorite musicians. Is his annoying behavior harmless or does something sinister lurk in the penthouse next door?

Why should she have to?

Almost Paradise

He’d better invest in some snow pants
Sinners’ fun-loving drummer Eric Sticks recently married his perfect woman. Well, she’s almost perfect. Rebekah’s idea to take a honeymoon road trip from their Southern Californian home to Bangor, Maine in December is far from perfect. He’d much rather travel to somewhere requiring fewer clothes—such as a tropical island paradise—but his new wife is determined to make him freeze his butt off. And unless he wins their wager and can keep from making love to his sexy, sassy lover for twenty-four hours, his butt is as good as frozen.

She has the perfect plan
Rebekah isn’t determined to go to Bangor to cause Eric’s butt discomfort. She’s discovered that his biological grandparents—who he’s never met—live in that distant Maine town and she wants to surprise him with the greatest gift of all: a real family.

She’s willing to play dirty to win her wager with Eric and knows her sexy, insatiable lover will be unable to resist her if she puts her mind—and her body—into seducing him. It’s Bangor or bust and she’s betting on Bangor.

Wherever they go, it will be together
Follow Eric and Rebekah on their fun, sexy and surprisingly emotional journey in search of their honeymoon paradise. Will they find it in Bangor or in Tahiti or will they ever make it to paradise at all? Well… almost.
