Backstage Pass Review and a Sinful Rock Hard Giveaway

Hello there buttercups!! It is I "GRETA THE GREAT".

Darkfallen won't take her nose out of Olivia Cunning's book Backstage Pass. So it is my honor to give you guys the low down on this nom of a book.

Have you read Backstage Pass?

If "yes" then did you husband decide he needed to learn how to play guitar?

Here is what Goodreads had to say about it:

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

And here's what Darkfallen... the little Minx, thought:

For the love of all things BOB and Hustler, here we go!

Myrna is a university professor in Kansas City. A human sexuality professor to be exact.

While she is away on a convention with her stuffy, boring colleagues she runs
into the Sinners, her favorite metal band, at the hotel bar. Surrounded by
boring suits she decides to go talk to them. I mean what does she has to lose
right? Before she knows it Myrna is sucked into the world of music tours,
groupies, and sexually exploration. Along the way Myrna loses a few things, but
gains something that she thought she would never posses again. Or that she would
want to.

Cunnings doesn't waste any time getting right down to the nitty
gritty. She dives right in leaving you saying things like: Ohmygodthatshot *fans
myself*, and at others EWWWWW No don't do that! *gags a little* then *blushes*

Uh Huh that's right I gaged and then blushed...this book is making me
question just how twisted my buried deviant side is. *winks*

In the end not only did Cunnings make you feel things...dark, sexy, hot inferno things, but she also painted a story that made me fall for the characters. By the time she was done with me I began to care about each and everyone of the Sinners band
mates, and wow don't get me started on Brian. Brian loves Myrna in a way that as
little girls we all dream about a man loving us one day. I know what your
thinking, and NO I DIDN'T CRY...ok maybe I got a little misty eyed. Shut up! ;)

This is a book that your husband will definitely reap the benefits from.
Well if he doesn't mind getting slightly raped in his sleep...thank gawd mine

Just a funny side note: The hubs actually asked me "What have
you done with my wife, and please by all means keep her there." lolz

Darkfallen's rating:

As you can see she really enjoyed herself ;)

And from what I hear her hub-a-dubs enjoyed himself even more ;) Muhahahahahas!! *wink wink OBVIOUS WINK!
