About the book
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...

My Thoughts
Myrna Evans is a struggling professor with a slightly uncertain future, but despite her circumstance she knows life has cut her a break given the past she’s had to outrun. She’s not looking for a relationship or any sort of commitment that threatens her independence, but when Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist of her favorite band Sinners, crosses her path there sets the stage for an adventure that’s filled with passion and excitement.

Overall Backstage Pass is an exciting read, but there were parts where a little toning down would have made it more enjoyable for my taste. I liked Brian Sinclair and Myrna Evans when it was just the two of them because I’m a one girl/one guy sort of romance reader. So when other characters entered the love scene, it became a bit much for me.

There were some funny scenes that had me laughing out loud and then there were some moments that had me shaking my head in disbelief. Some of what went down can’t be physically possible... it just can’t! :P So overall, there was a good balance of awesome and awful that didn’t tip the scale either way.

I’m curious about reading the story of the other band members. Sed should provide some spicetastic entertainment, so I hope he doesn’t disappoint making me wish he just stood there and looked pretty.
