My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Okay, Sed reminds me of my ex-husband, Jessica reminds me of someone I don’t like….this book started off with two big strikes against it. By the end I came to like Sed. Jessica? Not so much. Personal prejudice perhaps.
I do like the “rock stars are human” premise of the author. I find it funny how both Myrna in Backstage Pass and Jessica in Rock Hard can come on command, come multiple times, come and come and come. I found it funny that Jessica likes to do it in public and then was humiliated at being…never mind. And their super lovers are skilled in pleasing them, taking them to previously never before experienced heights. They’re like stallions in bed with the stamina of Greek Gods. When I was exploring sexually, I had lots of lovers and not many of them…very few….okay, were any as skilled as Sed and Brian? Not hardly. I didn’t even get as good as the groupies got. Should have found more rock stars. 🙂
Things I didn’t like or found cheesy: 1. Everyone but Sed’s and Jessica’s take on the addiction scenes. Really? You work in the music industry and can’t spot an addiction? 2. How Sed learned that he was really a nice guy underneath the asshole. Maybe. He could have been that wounded by Jessica that he had to act out. But if he was really like my ex-husband he’d never ever let himself get that vulnerable – ever. Some people are just wired that way.
Still, it’s very entertaining, over the top sex with a story thrown in. I just didn’t care for the main characters as much as I did in Backstage Pass. You might adore them, though.
