From the moment he lays eyes on Sinners’ new front of house soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she’s too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention. Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy. But Eric makes her laugh and his constant attention makes her feel sexy and irresistible–exactly what she needs after the things her last lover said to her. A woman who gives as much as she takes, Rebekah makes Eric feel like a total stud–exactly what he needs after surviving a decade of watching the incredibly talented members of Sinners from the wings.
Wicked Beat is the final installment in Olivia Cunning's series--Sinners On Tour--and I am sad to see its end.
I have loved the rock-n-roller coaster ride that Cunning created with her very sexy rockers and addictive characters.
Eric Stixx, the often misunderstood drummer, finally gets his HEA with a heroine that fits him like a glove. I absolutely adored Rebekah. She is sassy, gets Eric's warped humor, and has such a heartbreaking past, you can't help but like her. She is Eric's perfect match.
Throughout the Sinners Series, Eric's character has been a bit superficial...he's been the jokester, the one always watching from the sidelines...but as the series moves along, Olivia shows the reader a vulnerable side of Eric that tore at my heartstrings. For example, his relationship with Jace in the book, Hot Ticket, is expanded upon and the two become closer.
And now in Wicked Beat, we get to see exactly why Eric chose his voyeuristic tendencies and how his past shaped the man he became.
On top of all the emotional turmoil Cunning immerses the reader in, she gives us what she is extremely talented doing--extremely erotic and unique sexual situations that make for extremely aroused readers praying for their own rock god. You never know what to expect with Cunning's wicked imagination--but you can expect to be well satisfied in the end.
