Author: Olivia Cunning


She thought she was ready to rock…
Toni Nichols put her aspirations on hold while she raised her little sister, but now she’s reaching for the stars and living her dreams as the creator of a revolutionary interactive biography about the rock band Exodus End. Creating the book requires her to go on tour and immerse herself in the band’s world as an insider, but can she gain the trust of four veteran superstars who’ve been burned by the media before? Or will her dreams crumble at her feet?

He’s always ready to roll
Logan Schmidt was born an adrenaline junkie. He lives for the rush he gets from playing his bass guitar before thousands of fans. When he’s not performing on stage or in the bedroom, he’s looking for his next endorphin high in extreme sports. So what is it about the sweet and innocent journalist on their world tour that gets his heart pumping and captures his full attention? Is she the real deal or is she posing at being his perfect woman to get inside secrets on Exodus End?

They’re both ready to experiment
Though Toni was innocent the first time she climbed the bus steps, that didn’t last long once Logan set his sights on her. He’s so much more worldly than she is and she’s ready to learn how to please a lover and explore all the ways she can be pleased. Logan can’t believe his luck. Toni’s a phenomenal woman and she wants him to teach her how to rock and roll in the sack? Not exactly a burdensome task. Until she starts to get too close to his heart and takes her insider look to a place he never anticipated.


My Thoughts:

Oh man this book was everything that I love about an in-your-face rock band and what I imagine their lifestyle to be! And no one writes rock stars better than Olivia Cunning!! By 18% in I knew that this was another OC hit for me and she did not disappoint!

I loved the storyline of Toni taking a chance for the first time and going for what she wants in life. Logan falls so fast for Toni and the 2 of them essentially fit in a way that their friends never expected. She takes his childish and sometime selfish side in stride because she has had experience with this from living that with her mom. And he takes Toni’s naïve side and teaches her ways to not only be a woman but to be an independent woman away from her mother and sister.

We got to see plenty of our Sinners and the women that tamed them but if you haven’t read the previous series it will not take away from Insider, it will just seem like more sexy yet already taken rock stars. We learned some of the background and beginnings of Exodus End and its members – Dare and Max and Steve and Reagan. There’s a bit of the storyline that is left hanging with Toni’s editor Susan so I look forward to seeing where that goes…

As all OC reads are, the sexy is OFF THE CHARTS! And the banter between not only Toni and Logan but both bands was 5 stars for me. I laughed so much! “What do women like? As gifts, I mean.” “Besides sex toys and weed?”… “Yeah, besides sex toys and weed.””

I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough and at the same time I did not want the story to end! Outsider will be the next book in this series and will take a closer look at Reagan and her men. If you haven’t already you should grab Double Time, Sinners on Tour #5, and read about Trey Mills and how he a Reagan got things started! Oh who am I kidding?? You should grab the whole Sinners on Tour series and dive in if you haven’t already!

Grade A+
