Overview

For the five sexy rock gods of Sole Regret, finding love is easy, keeping it is hard.

Melanie has no desire to meet the members of the rock band, Sole Regret, but her groupie of a best friend gets them both backstage and then rushes off with the band’s lead singer. Left alone at an after party with a bunch of scary tattooed and pierced metal-heads, sheltered Melanie is relieved when the only normal-looking guy in the room insists on keeping her company.

By the time Melanie discovers that Gabe is the band’s drummer and not as normal as she assumed, she has already made a complete fool of herself. She can’t help but be interested in him, not as a rock star, but as the sexiest man she’s ever encountered. Strangely attracted to his hidden tattoos and body piercing, she wonders what it would be like to spend a night with a bad boy.

Gabe is more than willing to show sweet Melanie there’s more to him than meets the eye. All she has to do is try him. Will they only share a single night of passion? Or will their hearts entangle as quickly as their bodies?

Try Me is the first erotic novella in Olivia Cunning’s One Night with Sole Regret series.

Contains explicit sex, graphic language, and a hot rock star with a naughty and inventive mind.

    Fun quick read 

    This is my first Olivia Cunning book. I would say she lived up to her hyper. This was hot, fun erotic romance that was well written with a
    couple I really liked. I wil be reading more of her books for sure. 

    This book is a serial but not the type of serial with cliffhangers and the milking of the reader for more money. We get a full love story here
    but there is a Happily For Now feeling and that the Happily Ever After will be evolving though out the rest of the series with each book focusing
     on a different couple. I love a much more robust HEA but I was satisfied. 

    I loved the ex geek/closet geek rocker. The heroine was okay. We don't really get as much of her as we could. 

    Most of the secondary characters with cartoonish as of yet but I look forward to them rounding out.

    I discovered Olivia Cunning before I started blogging, so this i

    I discovered Olivia Cunning before I started blogging, so this is my first official review for one of her books. I'm so excited! Olivia is my favorite Erotic Author. She always comes up with the sexiest guys and most inventive and original "ideas". She actually writes a story too. It's not all sex. Her characters have substance. And what could be better than reading about sex? ROCK STAR SEX! This is definitely OC's specialty. Ok, I'm done with my fangirl spiel...on to the story!


    Since this book is a novella, it's short, so the story needed to get going pretty fast. Well, I wasn't disappointed. As I expected, I fell in love with Gabe. Gabe is the drummer of Sole Regret, who is covered in tattoos, but he's also a brainiac. He has an "inventive" mind and is a total sweetheart. Not to mention that he is sexy as sin. I'm very curious to learn more about his character and his background.


    I also really liked Melanie. She's the friend that sticks by you, even when you make stupid mistakes. She's a bit naive and unfamiliar with the world of rock and I loved that she didn't know who Gabe was when they first met. It made their relationship feel more genuine. I truly can't wait to see how their relationship develops. I really hope they can make it work.


    On to the sex. Ok, seriously...Olivia Cunning is the master of writing mind blowing sex scenes. Just when I think nothing could surprise me anymore, she does it. Of course all of the sex in this book is hot, but there is a particular part near the end that made me melt into the couch. I could hardly catch my breath. Serious stimulation overload, people. I mean that in the most heavenly way. I really wish I could tell you all about it, but it's just something you need to read on your own. Preferably with "help" near by. It was jelly bones, stick your head in the freezer, ice down your shirt, and panty changing fantastic.


    If you haven't read anything by Olivia Cunning, I insist that you check her out. I fell in LOVE with the Sinners on Tour Series and am waiting impatiently for book 3 in that series to release in November. In the meantime, I'm hoping to get to know more about the hot guys of Sole Regret!

    Encore, please

    The characters in this new rock saga are more realistic and easier to connect to. Fans of the Sinners series will not be disappointed because the plot starts with two girls doing the one thing most of us only think of in fantasy: getting backstage! What follows is a hot and inventive romance.

    Wow!


    Try Me was a little more than I expected, and a lot shorter than I thought it was. Why yes, it was also pretty… steamy.


    Melanie is dragged concert after concert by her crazy best friend Nikki in hopes to get backstage to meet her favorite bad, Sole Regret. Not an easy task to accomplish, but Nikki is set on stone. She wants to meet the lead singer, and so she will. Even if she has to uh, insinuate a few things to the guy sitting guard.


    A few things here and there, and they are backstage. Only now Nikki can’t find the courage to talk to the guy, while Melanie has to suffer through a room full of tattooed guys she despises.


    What’s the solution? Liquid courage. Always helps. Or maybe not.


    Nikki gets what she wanted, but that means Melanie is left alone to face fear every time she sees a tattoo in front of her. That is until the only normal-looking guy in the room starts talking to her.


    Normal looking? You say? I don’t think so.


    Gabriel, aka Force, is the band’s amazing drummer. He may look like he has no tattoos or piercings… when clothed, but what happens when those layers of clothing aren’t there? Well, Melanie is set to find out.


    Their chemistry is palpable, and before Mel can form a coherent thought they are already on their way to his hotel room. And what happens in that room… Man! I’ll just say it was oh-so-hot.


    But then feelings get in the way.


    Gabe’s life is on the road and a long term relationship would be hard to keep, but is he willing to try it with Melanie? Are they willing to set themselves to heartache just to find out what they might have together? You’ll have to read to find out.


    Try Me was a fast and steamy read. In fact, most of the book was spent in Gabriel’s hotel room. *Cough* There was a scene that kind of creeped me out a little bit, that kind of thing just isn’t for me, but otherwise it was good. Short, but good.


    I’m left wishing to know more about what will happen in the future, and how they’ll deal with their feelings and the fact that Gabe has to be on the road. I really hope the next books continue from where this left off, and if not, then well… I’ll have to read them and see what new stores they bring.

    Another Sexy Series To Drool Over

    No one presents rock stars as perfectly as Olivia Cunning does. She already writes one of my favorite series featuring one amazingly hot rock band and she's now added this one to her repertoire. Try Me is the first in a new series and features the unlikeliest of couples. What starts out with a slow burn soon becomes super scorching in this HFN novella.

    Melanie's always been the responsible one, helping her wild child friend at any given moment. Her friend's latest obsession is the hard rock band Sole Regret and Melanie ends up as part of the plan to meet the band. Melanie's soon left on her own and meets the one seemingly normal-looking guy backstage, finding herself unexpectedly attracted to him. For a girl who's scared of men with tats and piercings, once Gabe Banner starts undressing, she quickly changes her opinions. Melanie feels a bit naive and unworldly at first, she almost acts like a virgin. Once she's presented with the temptations that Gabe has to offer, her inhibitions are quickly shed which leads to quite a few erotic scenes with some unique methods being employed courtesy of Gabe's interesting pasttime.

    Gabe is one sexy beast, not at all the arrogant rock star that another of his bandmates is. He has hidden layers that no woman until Melanie has bothered to look for. He's somewhat embarrassed by his scholarly beginnings but Melanie is enthralled by every aspect of him and soon comes to relish what a genius can do in the bedroom. They make a wonderful couple, bringing out a different side to each other. They never realized that they wanted something permanent until it's time for them to part, which leads to a promising future once they decide to take a chance.

    There are lots of steamy encounters entwined throughout the story that give a believable feel to the rock star lifestyle. Sexual interludes that are smokin' hot on the erotic scale made my heart frequently race. Not only is Gabe drool-worthy but there's four more unexpectedly attractive band members oozing sex appeal, along with an overinflated ego or two, waiting for their stories to be told. The glimpses we get of each show men with emotional issues just waiting for someone to help heal. I'm definitely counting down the days to rejoin this band on tour when the next installment in this series is released and recommend this to fans of Ms. Cunning's other rock stars series.

    While it's true that TRY ME is very short, and filled with more sex than story, I knew that when I picked it up, and it was exactly what I wanted to read at the time. I still felt a connection with the characters (perhaps not the strongest, but more than I have with some novellas) and it made me want to one-click all the other books in the series. This is my second time reading Cunning, and I will be reading more books by her.

    Very sexy, very quick, but with a hero you can't help but fall for. I look forward to reading more from this series!

    4 STARS!

    Had I know this series consisted of nothing but half books I wouldn’t have wasted the money or time to read them but every single book (except Share me) was unfinished and now I get to wait for a second book for each of these to be written and released before I can BUY it and find out the ending. I am disappointed in this author for thinking unfinished books are a good idea, finish the entire NOVEL and charge me for the novel.

    It's no Sinners on tour

    Since I enjoyed the Sinners series so much, I thought I'd take a chance on the Sole regret books. I don't like books that require you to get Part two in order to complete the story. Why not just charge more and get a whole book? Plus this series isn't anywhere close to Sinners. Not worth the money or time.
