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.
Reagan Elliot can’t believe her good luck. When she sends a demo of her guitar playing in to a contest to tour with rock band Exodus End, she never expects anything to come of it-she only sent it as a sort of joke, at the urging of her friends after an evening of partying. When she gets one of the coveted five auditions, she is, in a word, stunned. While waiting her turn, she meets one of her guitar idols, Trey Mills, from her favorite band, Sinners.
The first time Trey hears Reagan play, he thinks it is a tape of Sinners’ lead guitarist, Brian Sinclair. Bi-sexual Trey has decided, now that Brian has married the woman of his dreams and has become a father, it is time to move on and forget the love he has had for him for at least a decade. In fact, Trey has decided it is time to give up men altogether, and when he meets Reagan, she brings with her a sense of peace and happiness that has been missing from his life. But giving up men may prove to be more than Trey can manage, especially when he meets Reagan’s roommate/ex-boyfriend, Ethan.
Then Reagan tells Trey the reason she and Ethan split is because she caught him in the shower…with another man. Trey is determined to forget that side of himself, but finds himself drawn to both Reagan and Ethan. When Reagan explains that it wasn’t Ethan’s sexual preference that upset her, but his hiding it, Trey is afraid he will lose her if she learns he is bisexual.
When Reagan begins getting treats, Ethan and Trey must unite to stop whoever it is, and they discover how difficult it is to stay uninvolved. Reagan decides that she will give Trey what he needs, even if it means she loses him forever. Can these three come to terms with the feeling each evokes in the other two? When the passion sparks, will Reagan discover her wilder side with two attentive and passionate men to care for her? Most important, will they be able to stop the stalker that has targeted Reagan once and for all?
Double Time is Olivia Cunning’s third book in her Sinners on Tour series, and the hottest so far. The world Ms. Cunning has built, filled with hot rockers and the women that love them, the fans, the groupies, and the insanity: all are well depicted and larger than life. Each of the band members, both in Sinners and Exodus End, are individual talents and I enjoyed learning a bit more about each of them during this storyline. I also liked seeing the behind the scenes lives of rock stars on tour here, and how at some times, they were just regular guys, who just happen to be famous.
Reagan Elliott is determined to be a musician, but not the kind her father would want her to be. Strong, talented and feisty, she is an individual with a ton of talent. She is smart, but a bit insecure, and I enjoyed watching as Trey was able to bring out her independent streak, and show her what she could really accomplish. She is sassy, sarcastic and just plain fun as a character.
Trey Mills is sexy, talented and hot. After years of unrequited love for Brian, he is determined to move on with his life, and finds in Reagan a sense of peace and completeness he never expected to find. He decides to make major changes in his life, and as he falls deeper in love with Reagan, he still feels bad that he hasn’t been completely honest with her about his dual sexual desires. When he finally come to Reagan and tells her the complete truth, then walks away rather than hurt her later, I was so proud of him. I felt that one scene showed just how much Trey had grown, as a lover and a man, and it made me cry just a little.
Ethan Connor is strong, loyal, and so very hot. A former policeman who wants nothing more that to help those who can’t help themselves, his one mistake was one that cost him Reagan’s affection. Ethan is loyal to his friends, especially Reagan, and he is determined that he will protect her, even from himself if need be. When Trey enters the picture, Ethan is tempted, and knows that Trey is interested too, but can’t move on his interest for fear of hurting Reagan, and ruining the friendship that has survived after what she sees as his betrayal.
There are a couple of intriguing threads to this one, and I enjoyed how Ms. Cunning wove them together. I liked the interaction between the two bands, and hope, once Ms. Cunning has finished with the Sinners, she gives us all a look at the boys in Exodus End as well.
I liked the way the stalker thread unwound, and was surprised at who it turned out to be; not who I expected at all. I loved Reagan’s solution for a happy ever after, one that worked for everyone concerned-Reagan, Trey and Ethan are terrific together, and the scene at the dungeon is beyond any I could have imagined. Do these three stop the stalker, tour the country and find true love? Read Double Time for the answers and beware, hot guys are around every corner in this one, with plenty of three way loving to heat up the night.
