Received book from publisher to review.

Sinners’ lead singer, Sed, had his heart shredded when Jessica left him to pursue her dreams,so when she dances her way back into his life, he's not sure he's ready for her brand of pain, or pleasure, again.  When she convinces Sed to engage in a benefits with benefits relationship, things seem to be going his way, until one of his fans catches their explicit public display of affection on film and posts it all over the internet.  Will Jessica ever trust Sed again?  And has Sed become the man of Jessica’s dreams or is he just posing to get what he wants?

Rock hard is the second book in the Sinners on Tour series by Olivia Cunning. This time Cunning focuses her story around the bands’ lead singer and wild boy Sedric Lionheart who must come to terms with the woman he let get away.

Jessica struggles to carve a path of her own. She is determined not to relive the mistakes her mother made, and her dream of attending law school has finally become a reality.Jessica finds that funding law school purely on scholarships is simply not enough to make it. When her scholarship is jeopardized, Jessica has to make a really tough choice if she wants to dance at a Vegas strip club for the summer to earn some money for school. Little does she know that when she steps out on the stage one night she will have a surprise come face to face with her.

I had no problem loving Rock Hard. The tension between Sed and Jessica was mind blowing. They had the typical issues that provides just more than tension, but a sexual chemistry that will keep you begging for more. Cunning surprised me with Sed and Jessica's wild ways. The situations were so unbelievably hot, I even had to fan myself. The hooking up in public places were not only hot, but gave us a deeper look into them as a couple.

Sed and Jessica are a much more complex couple then Brian and Myrna were in the first book. These two have a messy past and trying to see if they can make it whole again will take you for a loop.But the overall flow of Rock hard was a . Nothing in this story was predictable and for that I was hooked. Cunning delivers plot excitement throughout the entire story.

I liked Rock Hard, but to be honest I am really looking forward to lusting after Jace in his book. Thanks to Cunning who decided to drop in some yummy hints about Aggie and Jace! *Swoons* Hopefully he will be next in the series because Jace is totally full of yumminess... right Bells?!?

I am giving Rock Hard a rating of:

Yes Danielle I agree with you and I hope that Jace's book is next in the series!  I gotta say that I am really enjoying this series.  It's fun and sexy!  I like that I can take a break from reading what I normally read and get a glimpse into the naughty world of rock stars!
