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.
In my review of the last book in this series, Rock Hard, I talked a little bit about how predictable this series is. This isn’t a bad thing. In a way, it makes me think of Tessa Dare’s Spindle Cove series — we get a wonderful story based on two of our favourite characters and a happy ending. Who doesn’t like that? It’s the story, the words along the way to that happy ending, that isn’t predictable. While we know in this series that each guy on the Sinners tour bus will get his own story and (more than likely) his own happy ending (in more ways than one), there are so many UNpredictable things that happen before we get to the end.
I will admit, before I started reading a book in this series, I always feel a little daunted by the size. These aren’t short little stories, but rather longer stories full of the new guy’s story AND some tidbits from the previous rockers’ stories. It’s kind of nice that the guys on the tour bus are so close that we get to see what’s going on in everyone’s life in one book — with a little more emphasis on the main rocker of the book.
This book revolved around shy Jace. Jace was always the quiet one in the first two books and we got a bit of an inkling of who his woman of choice would be in Rock Hard. I was interested to see what would happen between him and his domanatrix. We really knew nothing about Aggie other than the fact that she worked at the same club as Jessica (Sed’s girl), so it was nice to get more of her story. I can’t say that Aggie was my favourite girl in the series — so far that spot is still reserved for Myrna — but she definitely was a perfect match for Jace. She might have been a bit overbearing and Jace might have been a bit too needy and jealous in sections, but it was still a really fun story to read.
And again. The sex. This was a little bit different from the first two books since we’re dealing with a domme and a submissive in this story, but it was still fun. Really, Olivia Cunning writes some awesome sexy scenes. I hate to say it, but it’s one thing I really look forward to in her books. She knows how to give the readers what they want!
Not my favourite book in the series, but still a lot of fun! There were a lot of twists and turns I wasn’t expecting and it made me really eager to read the next book in the series. I love that the suspense around the Sinners and their album being doomed (possibly) keeps building in the series. I’m interested to see where that goes! Can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
