Review: Try Me
Try Me by Olivia Cunning
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
GoodReads Synopsis 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?
**This is an ADULT book, intended for audiences over 18**
My Thoughts: Have I mentioned that I love Olivia’s rock band erotica? I do. Her’s seems more like what I would expect from a rock band than some of the glossed over “good guy” rockers in other books.
Anyway, this story was a kick and a great introduction to the band Sole Regret. I loved Melanie…she has some baggage and it colors her perception of men with tattoos…and yet she falls for a guy and gets to know him before ever knowing that he has them. I love when people are given an opportunity to overcome mis-perceptions. And Gabe handles her beautifully.
I’m excited to read more about Sole Regret! I will miss the Sinners when that series is concluded but am sure I will love Sole Regret almost as much!
