Rock Hard by Olivia Cunning

ROCK HARD
Sinners on Tour #2
Author: Olivia Cunning
Source: Publisher
*I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review*

Paperback: 448 pages
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (April 1, 2011)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 9781402245770
ISBN-13: 978-1402245770

SUMMARY:


An ultimatum can break your heart....

Every night lead singer, Sed Lionheart whips thousands of women into a frenzy with his voice alone. But the stage is the only place Sed feels any passion since he lost Jessica...

If you’re not willing to break all the rules...

It shattered her heart, but law student Jessica broke off her engagement to Sed, determined to be successful on her own terms. But no other man can ever hold a candle to Sed...

Then a chance meeting and tortuously close quarters lead to uncontrollable flares of passion and rediscovery of their unique penchant for public encounters. Now, in addition to the risk of mutual heartbreak every time they get together, they’re in danger of truly scandalous public exposure...


MY THOUGHTS:

After reading and reviewing Backstage Pass, I was in heaven when the publisher sent me a copy of the second book in the Sinners Tour series!  I wasn't sure how the author was going to write about Sed Lionheart after what he had done to Brian in the previous book, but I had faith in one of my favorite authors!


After Jessica walked out of Sed's life, he has been on a sexual spree that would put Hugh Hefner to shame!  Sed is cocky, stubborn, and can be mean as hell with his words, but underneath the attitude was a sensitive and loving man.  He tries to take care of his friends the best way he knows how, but sometimes it comes across with him sticking his foot in his mouth sideways. I understand that many people had a hard time liking this story because of the way Sed acted at times, but I actually thought the attitude fit the character and you start to understand him as you read more into the book. 

Jessica could be just as stubborn and showed it when she left Sed after he gave her an ultimatum.  I can understand the reasoning why she left, but I can also understand why Sed gave it to her in the first place after reading about his personality more.  I did find Jessica to be annoying at times, but I think this was more to the fact of my possessive feelings towards the boys of the band!  I want them happy, and it was torture reading the path the author kept taking them down!

The other members of the band play prominent roles in the story as well.  Trey has a crisis that effects everyone, Jace is still dealing with his own issues without giving explanations, Brian is trying to enjoy time with his new wife Myrna, and Eric is still as playful and fun as before. 


I loved the steamy sex scenes between Jessica and Sed that includes plenty of public shows!  While I enjoyed the story of the two main characters, I enjoyed Trey's story so much more!  I personally can't wait for his book and from what I understand, his book is going to be the last in the series!  Oh how the author loves to tease me!  All I can say is, at least the author pleases me with her stories while teasing me with sexy characters!  


FAVORITE QUOTE:


"If there were a Jessica Chase instruction manual, it would be written backwards in Arabic Pig Latin and twelve thousand pages long with random pages missing."


MY RATING:


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading! 5 STARS


TO TREY AND OLIVIA:
 

Just so everyone knows who I love the most from the books!

Great review. I like getting as much info. about a book that I can get so I know what I'm in for. By knowing about Sed's attitude and the why behind it will help me understand the character better and enjoy the book more. I can't wait to read this book.
