Review: Wicked Beat
Author: Olivia Cunning
Buy: Amazon, B&N
Rebekah, Sinner's temporary FOH(front of house)/soundboard extraordinaire is filling in for her brother who was injured during a bus crash. Her first day on the bus and her main objective besides doing a great job is getting with her crush, Trey Mills. With Rebekah still dealing with lingering self doubt from previous relationship issues, she isn't looking for a relationship, she's trying to heal her sense of self.
Eric Sticks is the drummer for the band Sinners. At first sight, Eric is so enamored by Rebekah that he is tongue tied. Being one of the most passive members of the band, I was slightly worried while reading that Eric wouldn't be able to get the girl. Eric has always been a band member that I've wanted to know more about, and I was really excited to get to know him better.
I felt that Wicked Beat gave a lot more back story to the main characters compared to the other books in the series. I got to know about Eric's childhood, and Rebekah's health/emotional issues, basically the things that makes them who they are. Though I didn't find most of that out until after the halfway point, it was there, so I was happy. As you can tell by the cover of the book this is erotica, it has romance, but there are quite a few over the top sex scenes. That being said, this series is not for the faint of heart, but anyone looking for a naughty rock star book will love it.
