    Not As Good As The Previous Sole Regret Story or Her Sinners Series

    Olivia Cunning knows the rock star lifestyle and conveys it perfectly, both the highs and lows. Along with her Sinners on Tour series of full-length stories comes this short story series, One Night with Sole Regret. This is the second installment and a bit of a disappointment compared to the first. What could have been a highly emotional story dealing with heavy issues ends up being one sex scene after another. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy steamy reads but not at the expense of character development.

    In Tempt Me, substance abuse counselor Madison has fallen hot and heavy for recovering addict/rock star Adam. Now while this seems a conflict of interest to me, it isn't a problem for her. And to find enjoyment in this story it's best not to think too deeply about this fact. Adam has completely changed Madison from her quiet studious self to a sex crazed nympho who looks forward to their rendezvous whenever Sole Regret's in town. At first this seems to be all they have binding them but she wants a commitment that she's scared to ask for for fear he'll leave. Realizing how important she is to his health makes her fight for something more serious and long-lasting. I admired her finally telling him her true feelings but wish she would've done her clinical job more wholeheartedly.

    Adam's path to total sobriety is perilous with the occasional slip that he's embarrassed to admit to Madison for fear of disappointing her. He wants to be sober for HER but has yet to realize it needs to be for HIM. I wish this issue had been dealt with more since it would've left a more powerful impression on me and gave the story a greater purpose. While Adam is totally sexy and great in bed, that seemed to be the be all end all to him as we never got to truly see into his soul.

    Tempt Me is a decadent treat of one sexual fantasy after another. If you're looking for something more then you'll be disappointed. I'm still invested in this series as I'm intrigued with the other members of the band and look forward to finding out more about them. This series isn't up to the standards of her Sinners on Tour series but it helps pass the time until another Sinners installment releases.

    so I almost didn't read this one based on others reviews but I'm glad I continued with the order of the series. this wasn't as bad as others say. yes, anal, but that's their kink. not any different than the others with their orgy fests, no biggie there.. I did however not care for the abrupt ending. I started the series thinking each one was about one night with that member, but instead it's more of a serialized set that you have to keep reading to know what's next. I do love Olivia's writing. this is different than the sinners series but only in the sense that you have a smaller picture and not the whole story.

    Olivia Cunning sure does know how to create rock stars who are absolutely down and dirty. In Tempt Me, she gives us lead guitarist Adam's story. While we spend most of the 118 pages getting a birds eye view at just how Adam expresses his appreciation of girlfriend Madison, it's those brief glimpses of his vulnerability and uncertainty as he deals with his feeling for Madison, his addiction, the animosity with Shade and his addict father that make you love Adam and want more to his story.

    Madison was an interesting woman. She's this sweet, caring chemical dependency counselor who apparently is sex fiend when she gets with a certain rock star. There was such contrast to both sides of her that you had to wonder sometime if it was the same woman. She would go from being worried someone could see her through the tinted glass of a limo to being all set to have public sex. And as a counselor, I would have expected a much stronger reaction to some of the things she discovered instead of the blase "I'll trust you to deal with it" attitude she had.

    My only disappointment with the story was how certain story lines were left hanging. There is obviously something that happened between Shade and Adam that has caused this huge rift. But we didn't get any back story about the two of them, even as we found Adam contemplating what to do. Same thing with Adam and Madi. The storyline goes down the path of them setting a date to go to a sex club and then Madi's running out the door for work. Wait...what happens in New Orleans? I'm hoping in the next Adam and Madison novella (the author has stated at the end of this book it's coming) that we get some kind of closure to the items left open in this one.

    Still a solid read and one that shouldn't be passed up.
