Jenny: 4 Stars
Gitte: My initial thoughts after reading Double Time, which I have to get out first before I continue, is why on earth did the publisher decide on printing this title going against the Author’s series order?
To me, personally, this was a mistake. This book is intended to be the last in the Sinners series. So it kind of spoils the other two books yet to come in this series. Those being the stories of Eric and Jace. I personally hate reviews with spoilers, so knowing how it ends up for them; I can’t help but feel very disappointed. I also think that when we get the next book, any story-line with Trey will seem odd. I feel sorry for Olivia Cunning that this has happened.
Jenny: I agree. It sort of stopped the momentum of Double Time for me once I realised it was released out of order. I have no idea why they did that and it was definitely a mistake.
I really feel for Olivia Cunning. Her publisher definitely made a bad decision choosing to release this before the other two.
Gitte: Okay, so that out of the way, I have to say I have loved Trey since Backstage Pass, he has been my favourite Sinner from the beginning.
Trey is cherry-liscious; he is a HOT Rock God! He is sweet, cocky, vulnerable, extremely sexy and a complete lovable man-whore (contradiction in term?!)…I want to be his cherry sucker…too much?!
Jenny: I think he is a lot of people’s favorite – I know many a reader is hanging out for some Trey loving and they WON’T be disappointed! Holy hotness GG!! How HOT was this freaking book?? Off the charts! Trey certainly has it going on that’s for sure!
Gitte: Yeah this Sinner fan-girl was jumping up and down the minute this bad boy landed on my kindle from Netgalley!
Jenny: Yep, I definitely did a happy dance when I realized I didn’t have to wait so long for some Trey lovin’..
Gitte: Trey gets love, finally, and it is new love…not the unrequited old-hashed kind. The brand spanking new LOVE he so deserves. Yes we know who he will always love, yet Trey finds love all by himself, and when I say love, I mean a whole lot of love and sex; don’t forget the sex, the hot and mouth-watering rocker sex that Olivia Cunning excels at. This man is insatiable.
Trey has always flaunted his sexuality and he is who he is, openly, which makes him so desirable. Trey has the biggest heart and I LOVE him. I thought Trey’s story was the most emotional Sinner book of the series.
Trey; the player meets his match in this story when he meets Reagan.
Jenny: It was wonderful to see Trey connect with Reagan on this level. Reagan is definitely a match for Trey emotionally and physically and how happy were we to see those feelings reciprocated. My heart always ached for Trey and his love for Brian. He always put the band first and kept his feelings hidden and I felt so sorry for him throughout the Sinners books. In Reagan he has someone who understands him and is able to get him to open up in a way Trey never has before.
”Look at me Trey” He shook his head; he never looked his lovers in the eye when he was joined with them. “Trey, look at me”
Gitte: Reagan is confident, funny, sexually aware and is kind of spunky. Yet she also has a vulnerable endearing side to her. I loved her character; she has to be my favorite Sinner heroine so far. Oh and I LOVED her tattoo.
Jenny: I agree. I loved Reagan as a heroine GG… She’s a tomboy, can play a mean guitar, is one of the boys but also very sexy and confident and has a great sense of humor Our girl has spunk that’s for sure! I loved the banter between her and Trey; she really kept him on his toes at times.
Gitte: So Trey meets Reagan, an ambitious guitarist who enters a competition to play with Exodus End. At the audition with the band there is an instant intense connection. Not only a sexual attraction; but an emotional one too.
Trey gives up his bisexual lifestyle and begins a hot and sweet romance with Reagan yet does not tell her about his bisexuality.
However when Trey meets Reagan’s bisexual room-mate, ex-cop Ethan, he can no longer denies who he is or what he wants. Ethan is a dominant alpha male and Trey is immediately attracted to him as is Ethan to Trey. Problem is that Ethan is Reagan’s ex and the break-up caused an emotional scar for Reagan which Trey does not want to repeat and add to. He does not want to screw up what he has with Reagan. Ethan really annoyed me at times, I thought his part of this threesome started as a result of his selfishness, however I can’t say I didn’t find the story extremely yummy and HOT!!
Jenny: GG you really did feel the instant connection between these two didn’t you? Reagan had been burnt in the past by a cheating ex -boyfriend and as a result has some trust issues but she can’t deny the feelings she has for Trey. They definitely connect on an emotional and physical level and the sexual chemistry is something else between these two.
Enter hot alpha dominant Ethan in to the mix…..whoa is he ever alpha and don’t we love these men GG! The chemistry between Trey and Ethan is palpable and you really feel for Trey as he tries to deny the side of him that wants…no… needs this man badly! Trey fights his desires in order to have a solid relationship with Reagan – he’s never felt this way and he really wants to make this work.
Seeing Trey fight his feelings through this book just makes you connect with him and you so badly want this guy to have a HEA. He really does deserve it and you hope and pray he finds it any way he can..
Gitte: Trey’s story has a yummy mixture of; M/F, M/M and M/F/M, as well as lovable characters sweet romance and Rock Stars….can’t ask for more J
Jenny: I found Trey’s story to be the most emotional of the Sinners books so far. This one really had heart. There were a few times I welled up reading this. Trey has so much emotion. I love him!
GG, Readers better be prepared to get hot and bothered over the sex scenes!! Guys, you really will be fanning yourselves…repeatedly! Trey is a very sexual creature so we always knew his book was going to send the hormones racing – let’s face it Olivia Cunning can write a sex scene that leaves you breathless and she doesn’t disappoint here that’s for sure.
Gitte: I have to say I now cannot wait for Jace’s story who is my other favorite!
Jenny: Yes, bring on Jace’s story. I’m not done with these bad boy rockers just yet!
