Hot Ticket Book Review
He needs her to mask his pain…
When Jace walked through the doors of Aggie's dungeon, the last thing he expected was to find self-forgiveness and the love of a remarkable woman. But when a terrible accident sidelines Jace during the band's tour, the burdensome chains of his past wrap ferociously around his heart.
She needs him to forgive himself…
Determined to crack through Jace's armored shell, Aggie must go beyond her usual methods to mend his heart to love again.
Sinners On Tour is a series of books about a rock band - 5 sexy guys in a bus on the road having the time of their life...A different city & a different girl/s every night. While I loved books 1 & 2, Brian & Sed's stories, I fell in love with Jace - bass player extraordinaire in Hot Ticket.
Jace is the newest member of The Sinners, having replaced Jon who was let go from the group for repeatedly abusing drugs. He is not sure of his place in the band so he keeps his head down, his thoughts & ideas to himself, and tries to go unnoticed - both on stage and off. He doesn't talk about himself or share his painful past with anyone. Jace is deeply scarred & emotionally insecure. He doesn't believe himself worthy of anyone or anything good. His story is heartbreaking as it is revealed, and the reader begins to learn why the only thing Jace gets off on is pain. He desires it, seeks it, relishes it, and truly believes he deserves it. Enter Aggie - on a strip stage in a club snapping her whip in Jace's face while wearing a corset and thigh high boots. Jace is so turned on that he can't wait to get his hands on her. Aggie loves giving pain and making men beg on their knees, and she does so frequently but she does not have sex with them. Little does she know - when she agrees to take Jace on as one of her private customers - that she has met her match and things are getting ready to change. Jace turns her on like she's never been before. Aggie steps up to the plate and accepts the challenge. We'll see who's begging now! As their discovery of each other begins, a bad accident makes Jace question everything as he believes his world is crashing down. Can Aggie make him see what's staring him in the face everyday?
Olivia Cunning has a way of drawing readers in and making them care about each one of these sexy bad guys. I loved the banter between band members as it revealed how much they really care about each other and had each other's back. Each of the band members is flawed in some way and acts out in an effort to hide their personal pain but you can't help falling in love with them. There is a lot of action and sex in these books but - make no mistake about it - this is a love story, as is each of the Sinners On Tour books. Jace's story is particularly harsh as he seeks redemption from what he perceives as his guilt and sins. He's a very lost soul in desperate need of love and security. I am a bit haunted by Jace's story and could not put this book down until I finished it. A Must Read! Loved it!
