Review: Double Time
Double Time by Olivia Cunning
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
GoodReads Synopsis: Olivia Cunning delivers the perfect blend of steamy sex, heartwarming romance, and a wicked sense of humor in this menage story featuring the hottest guy in the Sinners band.
Trey Mills, the notoriously sexy Sinners rhythm guitarist, gives up his bisexual lifestyle and is swept into a hot, heady romance with Reagan Elliot, a female rock star sensation. But when Trey encounters Reagan's sexy bisexual roommate, Ethan Conner, he can no longer deny who he is or what he wants. Reagan heartily agrees to a solution that opens up a hot new world of sexual experience--and love--with the two men she wants the most.
**WARNING this is an ADULT title intended for an audience of 18+**
My Thoughts: LOVED this book…but, I gotta warn you. The publisher has decided to print this title out of the order the author intended. This book was intended to be the last book in the Sinners series. So it spoils some of the two books in this series which still have to come out, those of Eric and Jace. So consider this a word of warning…don’t read any further is you HATE spoilers…also you might want to pick up the book and just hold onto it until you get a chance to read Jace and Eric’s books first.
This was a great story and a beautiful summation to the series which still has two books to publish. OK, I’ll get off this soapbox now. Trey has been pining for Brian since they were kids and he is finally forced to move on. But as he makes this realization he meets Reagan who really sets his world on end. But can Trey really be happy with Reagan in the long run?
Ultimately it’s a story about accepting yourself and others as they are. The heart can’t help who it loves, it’s the brain we have to convince sometimes. I think Cunning gives Trey an authentic voice and she’s maintained that authenticity throughout. Trey’s lived the rocker lifestyle of sex drugs and rock-n-roll, even he isn’t sure he is ready to settle down, but I think watching what has happened with his bandmates who have settled down, happily, really rattles him as he wonders if he can ever have what they have. Cunning found, created, the perfect girl for him in Reagan. She loves Trey wholeheartedly and only wants to see him happy. It was good to see Trey finally happy. He’s got such a huge heart hidden behind all the bluff and bluster.
Looking forward, still, to Jace and Eric’s stories. I will be sad when Sinners comes to an end, because they are some awesome rockers!
