I've been a big fan of Olivia Cunning's Sinners on Tour
series and have eagerly anticipated the third book in the
series so when it came in for review I snatched it up and
started reading. I'm happy to report that the wait was worth
it. DOUBLE TIME has all the gritty sexiness, hot rockers,
and emotional challenges I've come to expect from Ms. Cunning.
Trey Mills, Sinner's outrageously sexy rhythm guitarist, has
been secretly in love with his best friend Brian Sinclair,
the band's lead guitarist. Their casual sexual encounters
have stopped now that Brian is married to Myrna and they
have a newborn son (see Backstage Pass). Brian is
happy with his life but Trey is struggling to move on. Trey
decides he needs to give up men and focus on finding the
right woman for him just as he encounters Reagan Elliot.
Reagan entered a contest to be fill-in guitarist for Exodus'
End never really expecting to win. But when she blows them
away with her audition she finds herself getting ready to
tour with the band. Trey, sitting in on the auditions, finds
himself drawn to Reagan because she plays just like Brian.
Once he gets to know her, he finds himself attracted to her
passion and spirit. They quickly start falling in love and
are thrilled that their bands will be touring together.
Trey's determination to be a one-woman man is challenged by
Ethan Conner, Reagan's roommate. They were lovers until
Reagan caught him cheating on her with another man. Now she
thinks of him as her gay best friend not realizing that he
is still in love with her. At first he hopes to fan the
flames of attraction that flare up between him and Trey to
push him out of Reagan's live, but soon they find that what
they all feel is bigger than any two of them alone.
DOUBLE TIME gives us Trey's much anticipated happy ending,
and all the sexual adventures along the way. Trey has a bit
of little-boy-lost vibe. He has longed to be loved and
accepted, things he finally finds with Ethan and Reagan.
Fundamentally, the story is about being honest and accepting
of who you are; a theme we see for Trey, Ethan, and Reagan
separately and as a trio. There was a subplot involving
someone stalking Reagan that I found less compelling then
the romantic relationships which kept me reading late into
the night. It was also great fun to check in with some of
the other Sinners. I can't wait for Jace's story, Hot
Ticket, due out in early 2013.
