Rock Hard by Olivia Cunning
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Second in her series about the rock group "The Sinners." Lead singer Sedric "Sed" Lionheart (I hope this is not his real name) had his heart broken years ago by his fiancee, Jessica Chase, when they argued over her desire to go to law school. It's now a few years later, and having unfairly lost her scholarship, Jessica starts stripping. Not long after that, Sed comes into the club and back into her life. Enter Myrna (heroine of the first book), who hires Jessica to "enter data" for her plot device groupie sex life study while Myrna and lead singer Brian are on their honeymoon, enabling Jessica and Sed to rekindle their sex life. But Sed's friends blame Jessica for his assholish behavior after their breakup, and Sed's fans hate her for breaking his heart. It also turns out Sed and Jessica have a fetish for having sex in public. There is no way any of this could possibly go wrong.
I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first. While the sex scenes remain hot, they're a little less kinky than in the first book. I found myself paying more attention to the plot, actually particularly the parts about the injuries to various band members (threatening their careers and reminding me of the financial and artistic precariousness of a musician's life) and the secrets Jessica uncovers at her law school as she attempts to get her scholarship reinstated.
So...rock on, Sinners! \nn/
