#BookReview | STAGED (Exodus End #3) by Olivia Cunning

 

 


THE QUEEN OF ROCK STAR ROMANCE IS BACK AT HER BEST – AGAIN!!

2018 was a great year for sex and rock n roll! Legendary drummer Steve Aimes is about to embark on another Exodus End World Tour. This time, he will be without his best friend’s group Twisted Element who has been replaced with an all female rock indie group BAROQUEN.

STAGED tells the story of Roux and her foster sisters/bandmates while mingling with rock and roll royalty – Exodus End. As their new opening act they are embarking on a once in a life time gig compliments of Sam Bailey – EE sneaky conniving manager. They generate interest along with some resentment even though Steve takes a personal, romantic interest in Roux Williams, the keyboardist of the group.

Once again, you are immerseed in the backstage inner workings and personal lives of the band as well as the sister/bandmates of BAROQUEN. It’s thrilling to read about hotel sex, bathroom sex, private jet sex, private island sex – you get the picture. The sex scenes are inventive and dirty AF and that’s what you WANT from Olivia Cunning’s bad boys of rock.

It checks off all the rock romance must haves: Camaraderie between bandmates , Groupie Love, Sex, Drugs and Scandal , Private jets, over the top shopping sprees, and “why can’t I get enough of you sex”. Step inside the world of Exodus End and may you never want to leave.

Next up – Dare Mills! What is up with his broodiness and “I want no part of this rock lifestyle emptiness?” Unfortunately we will probably have to wait and wait and wait for it. I know, we will raise holy hell if we have to wait until 2020 but once we have Dare’s story in our little hands, Cunning will surely make it worth it. I’m left with a major head banging hangover for this one!!!

 

The world is his stage…
Exodus End’s legendary drummer, Steve Aimes, plays the role of a rock star better than anyone in the business. Since his divorce, he’s embraced every rock ’n’ roll stereotype and uses those vices to keep women at a safe emotional distance, while keeping their physical distance recklessly close. He vowed years ago to never give any woman the power to break his heart again. He just has to keep playing the part, and never drop his guard, and stop obsessing over the keyboardist in their new opening act. He didn’t want Roux’s band on this tour in the first place, but somehow she shattered his barriers without even trying. The only way he knows to save his heart from breaking is to make her his forever, so why does she keep pushing him away?

The stage is her world…
Roux Williams knows an opportunity like this only comes around once in a lifetime. Her band, Baroquen, has finally gotten their big break and are opening for Exodus End and Sinners—two powerhouses of rock—on the European leg of their world tour. She refuses to screw up this opportunity by getting involved with Steve Aimes no matter how gorgeous, sexy and surprisingly attentive he is. She can’t deny her attraction to him—the man has the body of a god and the face of a model—but he’s absolutely off limits. Maybe a lust-crazed weekend on a private island will get him out of her system. Or maybe she’ll fall even harder. Once the tour is over they can date, but until then she must keep her distance, because mixing business with pleasure is not only tabloid fodder, it’s professional suicide. But damn, why does he have to be so stubbornly irresistible?

When their worlds are rattled by a ploy staged to destroy them, Exodus End’s infamous bad boy and Baroquen’s not-yet-famous good girl must figure out a way to have it all and each other.

This is book 3 in the Exodus End World Tour series (a spin-off of the Sinners on Tour series). Book 1 (Insider) and Book 2 (Outsider) are also available, but this book can be read as a stand-alone.
