She’s finally ready to rock...
Toni Nichols set aside her dreams to raise her little sister, but now she's reaching for the stars as the creator of a revolutionary interactive biography about Exodus End. She’s on tour with the rock band to immerse herself in their world, but how will she ever gain the trust of four veteran superstars who've been burned by the media before? Nobody said this was going to be easy. Then again, good things can come in hard packages.
He's always ready to roll…
Adrenaline junkie Logan Schmidt lives for the rush of playing his bass guitar before thousands of screaming fans. When he's not performing onstage or in the bedroom, he's looking for his next thrill in extreme sports. So why does a sweet, innocent journalist get his heart pumping and capture his full attention? Is Toni the real deal or just digging up dirt on his band? Logan’s eager to rock Toni’s world and roll her in the sack, but when she starts to get too close to his heart, she takes her insider look to a place he may never be willing to go.

5 Stars

Being a HUGE fan of Olivia Cunning and both her Sinners and Sole Regret series I was beyond excited to read Insider and finally get to learn more about the men of Exodus End! I was so not disappointed and I loved every single page of this book. Insider has all the hot rock star sex, romance and humor we’ve come to expect from Olivia and just like her other series, I instantly fell in love with all of these characters and can’t wait for more! 

Logan and Toni are the most unlikely couple. Logan being the hard partying, never serious, goodtime guy of a super successful heavy metal band and Toni the ever sheltered virgin, with heavy responsibilities and a penchant for wearing clothes more suited for someone double or even triple her age! But when these two come together there is something so sweet and sexy that happens and their connection just leaps off the page. Logan is such a likeable character, always cracking jokes and keeping things light-hearted. 

“Got yourself a vampire fetish?” he asked with a chuckle. “What?” she managed to say. “No, of course not. Vampires aren’t real.” “But I’m about to bring your fantasies to life, babe. If you want to get banged by a sparkling dick, I’ll go get the glitter.” 

Toni, although inexperienced and na├»ve, knows what she wants and is willing to go after it. She works hard and is constantly pushing herself beyond he comfort zone throughout the book. 

“Logan, I know we haven’t known each other long---“ “Are you sure?” he interrupted, pushing her glasses up her nose for her. “It feels like I’ve known you forever.” 

Insider is another homerun for Olivia Cunning and I cannot wait to read about the rest of the Exodus End members and read their stories!

A sudden commotion near the wall behind the stadium drew Toni’s overly divided attention. The buses were parked in a walled alcove, and a barrier had been erected to keep the crowd from harassing the band after the show. As Toni’s unexpected intrusion had kept the group outside longer than usual, they’d been spotted by fans leaving the concert.
“Get on the bus, guys,” Butch said. “You can figure out what to do with her inside.”
“I’ll have no problem figuring out what to do with her,” Logan said, his lips curving into a suggestive smile. “No problem at all.”
Toni stiffened. Was that a come-on? Surely she was imagining things. She glanced at the other members of the band, but no one else seemed to have heard his offhand comment.
“The fans have seen us,” Max said.
Dare grinned. “Can’t be helped.”
All four of them made a beeline for the crowd, their entire security team scrambling after them in a panic. Toni reached into her bag for her small camera and her audio recorder. Most of her gear was in the giant camera case that had been placed under the bus by the helpful security guard who had shown her to the bus, but she didn’t have time to grab superior equipment. She switched on the recorder and pinned it to the turtleneck collar of her burnt-orange sweater. She spoke into the microphone as she hurried after the group: “I think they want to interact with their fans. Security doesn’t look too pleased with their decision to approach the crowd.”
Toni snapped a picture of Steve signing the back of a pretty fan’s Drummers Bang Harder T-shirt. The young woman shuddered as he slowly tugged the silver marker tip over the soft cotton. Mr. Abs grinned mischievously as the hand he used to hold the young woman’s shoulder stationary inched down her chest. Toni’s eyes bulged when his questing fingertips finally reached their target and finding no resistance to his fondling, he cupped the woman’s breast, brushing its tip with his thumb. Oh my God. Did he even know this woman? Maybe he did. She didn’t smack him. Instead she covered his hand with hers and encouraged him to squeeze her boob while he eased in closer behind her and whispered into her ear. Toni wondered if she should include something like that in the book. She smiled as she imagined the caption beneath such a picture: Steve Aimes cops a feel while serving his fans. Or perhaps: Steve aims to bang more fans than drums.
Combining her love for romantic fiction and rock 'n roll, USA Today Best-Selling Author Olivia Cunning writes erotic romance centered around rock musicians.

Raised on hard rock music from the cradle, she attended her first Styx concert at age six and fell instantly in love with live music. She's been known to travel over a thousand miles just to see a favorite band in concert. As a teen, she discovered her second love, romantic fiction -- first, voraciously reading steamy romance novels and then penning her own.
