Book #3 in reading order of events in book series, per author
There are things in bassist Jace Seymour’s past that he is unwilling to share with anyone. To cover his guilt and anguish, he seeks dominatrix Mistress V (Aggie) to temporarily placate his inner turmoil.
Aggie doesn't have much use for men–besides the power rush she gets when they’re begging for mercy at her feet–but Jace isn't like her usual clients. His cool defiance and unexpected dominance in the bedroom drives her to distraction and quickly steals her heart.
When circumstances threaten Jace’s position in Sinners, Aggie must help him regain his rightful place in the band while showing him that time and love can heal all wounds
This book has everything I look for in a erotic romance! Hot guy write with a depth of character that you just need to know how he survived his dark past and discover his secrets. An alpha male with a twist. A heroine who can kick butt, is a strong woman and won't let any man walk all over her. Again written so that the reader can really invest emotionally in the story. I've said before and I'll say again, Olivia Cunning is a genius at character creation giving them emotional depth and a fully dimensional personalities. Her grasp of the how a rock band interacts together is one of the tings that make this series special. Her creations of a story line that not all encompasses steaming, hot sex but also a running plot with a bit of suspense both in the central relationship but also in the overall story. The only thing that I would criticize about this book is Abby's mother I'm not sure how her side story lent itself to moving the plot forward or in character development. It just didn't seem to really matter other than an excuse for Abby to go see Jace.
I am totally a fan-chick of the Sinners and can't wait to read the last two books in the series. This is on my favorites shelf as a definite reread book and I would absolutely recommend it to readers who enjoy Erotic Romance.
5 Big bright Shiny Stars to this wonderfully sexy read. Off to read the next one..out of order apparently since the publisher released them out of order...and I can't wait for the real 4th book to be released...I'm addicted to my metal head band....ROCK ON!

*Awesome ending to an awesome series...a definite must read!* Note this book was released as book 3 when it is in reality book 5. This was not the author's fault so I will not penalize her in this review.

Olivia Cunning delivers the perfect blend of steamy sex, heartwarming romance, and a wicked sense of humor in this menage story featuring the hottest guy in the Sinners band.
Trey Mills, the notoriously sexy Sinners rhythm guitarist, gives up his bisexual lifestyle and is swept into a hot, heady romance with Reagan Elliot, a female rock star sensation. But when Trey encounters Reagan's sexy bisexual roommate, Ethan Conner, he can no longer deny who he is or what he wants. Reagan heartily agrees to a solution that opens up a hot new world of sexual experience--and love--with the two men she wants the most.
Olivia Cunning knocked the ball out of the ball park with this stunning series of a group of twenty something rockers on tour. The readers are given an indepth look into the world of metal rock bands and the interactions between members of the band, the band and their fans and the band. These books are also in a lot of ways a coming of age story as these "boys" turn into men book by book in the series. The 5 stories weave a back story through out each novel to end up with a nice bow tie at the end of book 5. OC weaves descriptive hot sex (erotic) in with her character development and she also uses it as a vehicle to move the story in the direction she wants us to go.
In Double Time a menage/mfm/mm book we finally get Trey's story. Now Trey has been a book boyfriend of mine since book 1 and I am excited OC did him justice. Through Trey's bisexuality we see how he tries to change for the woman he loves and how he grows and learns so much about himself as he develops his relationship with Reagan. Ethan was a wonderful mix of protector, little boy, dom and boyfriend...as part of this relationship we do learn more about him. I personally did not have the connection with him as I did with Reagan and Trey although at the end of the book I warmed up to him and did connect with him emotionally. I did wish this happened slightly earlier in the book.
It was wonderful seeing the characters in the past books mature and finally settle into their places as couples, as the band and as people. I did find Brian's angst a wee bit over the top and would like to have seen him a bit more stoic and perhaps behave slightly out of character in his pining for his family.
I recommend this whole series to lovers of erotic romance with a kick but do caution readers to not jump ahead and read this one prior to the release of the real book 4 in August 2013. This book reveals things about Eric's story that you just don't get cause of not having the background of reading Eric's book. .
I give this book and the series a 5+stars they are firmly on my personal favorite's shelves as I know I will want to reread this rockin adventure. I recommend the series to lovers of erotic romance with a strong contemporary setting and characters. The series is edgy and fresh and I truly hope OC writes Dare and his band's stories next. ROCK ON OLIVIA!!!
