Book Description:
From the moment he lays eyes on Sinners’ new front of house soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she’s too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention. Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy. But Eric makes her laugh and his constant attention makes her feel sexy and irresistible–exactly what she needs after the things her last lover said to her. A woman who gives as much as she takes, Rebekah makes Eric feel like a total stud–exactly what he needs after surviving a decade of watching the incredibly talented members of Sinners from the wings.

Ginny’s Review:
–blows out deep breath– Ooooohhhhhh kay.

I liked this book. Though at first I didn’t think I would. There are a few things that I have an issue with, but most of them are not limited to just this book.  But I liked this book.

I imagine this book in my head being basically a pornography film with a better storyline and good actors. If you could find the actors to pull it off, it would be incredibly hot and I’d definitely pay to see it.

That being said: I would also like to find this magical land where women are 5’2″, weigh less than 110lbs and somehow magically have large breasts.  In one of the first sex scenes, it is implied that Rebekah’s breasts are large enough for Eric to -ahem- have sex with. (Also, if you’re easily put off by a lot of vulgarity and sex, neither this book, nor this review will be well suited to your tastes.) Again, this book isn’t the only book to have a heroine from this magical land of tiny-waisted, light women who have breasts that should be physically improbable to have.

I enjoyed the small bits of plot that appeared in the story, though they were few and far between the sex scenes (and there were MANY sex scenes), and though it’s nothing deep, if you ever needed ideas on how to spice up your bedroom, make marginal notes in this book.

Within the first few chapters, it is revealed (and in no way is this any kind of major spoiler) that Eric cannot hold off his orgasms for long — something he is ashamed of and has caused major issues in the past.  So after a marathon of sexual acts, Rebekah points out that he lasted more than 10 minutes, and he admits that he doesn’t know why.  At this point, I was basically yelling at my Kindle, “BECAUSE YOU JUST HAD 8 ORGASMS IN A ROW, DUMB ASS!!” … Thankfully Rebekah figures this out, even if he hasn’t at the age of 28.

There are bad/corny jokes aplenty, amusing conversational tidbits and much more. Honestly, without talking more and more about the sex in this book, there isn’t much to say without giving away spoilers.  It’s a wonderful piece of erotica, with the minimum amount of plot and depth to keep the reader going.

I give this a three-point-five out of five for the entertainment value.  And because I’m a “mature” adult who still enjoys any comeback involving the words “your face,” here’s the

Quote For This Review:

“I have a bad feeling about this,” Brian said.
“Well I have a bad feeling about your face, but we still let you hang around.”
