Staged (Exodus End, #3)

The world is his stage…Exodus End’s legendary drummer, Steve Aimes, plays the role of a rock star better than anyone in the business. Since his divorce, he’s embraced every rock ’n’ roll stereotype and uses those vices to keep women at a safe emotional distance, while keeping their physical distance recklessly close. He vowed years ago to never give any woman the power to break his heart again. He just has to keep playing the part, and ...

    After Jessica from Chatterbooks Book Blog raved and raved about this author's books and how much she knew I'd love them, I figured it was about time to find out if she was right. She was! So thanks Jess for putting me on to a stellar book! 💜💜As this was my first read from this author, I didn't know the back stories of the characters or the inner workings of their interpersonal relationships. And that was fine because the author wasn't lyin...

    I started this book many many months ago. And I stopped at 20% and I have to say I need to give it up. I love this author and I think she writes the best rock star romance books. So I don't know what was the issues here....* maybe it was way too much time between books * maybe it is too long * maybe, maybe, maybe I started this book many many months ago. And I stopped at 20% and I have to say I need to give it up. I love this author and I thin...

    Surprisingly romantic and sweet. Who knew Steve Aimes was such a sweetheart when in love!?

    Okay, so, 1000 years later, WE FINALLY HAVE THE NEXT EXODUS END BOOK!!!I won't lie, I didn't really remember who Steve was, or some of the other characters, but Olivia's writing is absolutely amazing so it didn't take long for everything to come rushing back. Sweet, sexy, very detailed relationship between Steve and Roux. Five-star supporting characters. I've knocked off a star because, shockingly for this author, a potential gay relationship bet...

    Olivia Cunning is one of my favorites, so it pains me to write this. But WHAT was this book?!- [main character] is drugged/date raped and [other main character] keeps pressuring them to report to the police/drag the perpetrator all over the tabloids when the [MC] expressed their reluctance. Respecting agency for survivors, who? (see excerpt under spoiler)(view spoiler)[“You stole from us,” Max said, his hand wrapping into the fabric of Sam’...

    Who knew Steve was so romantic?!!!i loved it! Roux was a sweet and spunky match for him. Their story is equal parts hot as sin and sweat as chocolate. Great addition to the series. I need Dare’s book like I need air. Please don’t make me wait two years. 😩

    *SBTB Quarterly Challenge- January 2. So Long 2018:: Read a book published last year.*Goodreads, how could you let me down like this? You didn't tell me there was a new book from Olivia Cunning? I had to figure it out myself three months later? I'm not mad, just disappointed.Anyway, the book itself was ok. The hero and heroine's initial antagonism lasted for about five minutes before they both became as mushy as spring snow. There was very little...

    The long wait for the third Exodus End book is finally no more! Olivia Cunning delivered Steve Aimes's story and it's a doozy. He's much deeper than expected and I loved watching this party boy fall hard for the beautiful Roux. Lots of new characters were introduced and I'm looking forward to their future stories as well. The book was a bit long and girthy (kind of like Steve!) and at points, I did wish it would speed up a bit during the first ha...

    ~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~This is the third book in this series (and links in with the Sinners series too). It is an absolutely wonderful read, and moved the band's story forward a lot, as well as giving Steve his chance at a true HEA. I would definitely recommend that you read these books in order, as they really are installments in a bigger story. Just as the second one (Outsider) overlapped som...

    A really delicious slow burn rock star romance. I loved Roux and Steve (and the appearances of other much loved characters) I'm looking forward to reaidng more about the Baroquen girls at some point in the future.

    2'75 starsIt was going really well but there was a twist at the end that wasn't well handedly done and it pissed me off. That's why the low rate. Otherwise it was a sweet and sexy book.

    This was another winner for me by an author I have come to know and trust, so far I have read every one of the 3 series books that have come out by Olivia Cunning and she does not disappoint. I will say for people who are big fans of her kinky rock stars, this book is slightly different, and for me thats what made me love it even more. I think that having 2 main characters who were so mature and in-tune with each other made a huge difference for ...

    STAGED Offers the Best and Worst of Humanityhttp://fangswandsandfairydust.com/201...A new opening act has come on board for Exodus End’s much vaunted world tour, with dramatic results. This novel runs 17 hours which is a long time for a steamy, contemporary romance of the rock-n-roll variety. It doesn’t seem long, or as if there is a lot of filler. While the relationship develops quickly, it is over a period of at least a month. But then agai...

    Roux’s best friend was Raven who was the bands stylist. Raven was also her foster sister. The band Roux was a part of with other foster sisters was Baroquen. Each of the five women had a different color for the costume as well as hair to offset the black goth dresses and makeup they wore in public. Roux color was red. Roux barely recognized herself when in costume. She was the keyboardist of the up and coming band that would soon go on tour wit...

    Staged, Olivia Cunning.Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsGenre: RomanceWay back when I got my first kindle I found a free book I liked the sound of. It was Brian and Myra's story, the first Sinners book. I loved it and went on to buy the rest. I wasn't so taken with the Sole Regret novels, liked them but as one off reads. I was so keen to read Exodus End books, having met Dare several times in Sinners novels. I'm still keen to read his story,...

    I was so surprised and excited to learn that Staged , the third book of Exodus End, was released after an extensive wait. There was not a lot of buzz before the release, but being a groupie of Olivia’s rock-gods, I one-clicked it in no time.I absolutely love this sexy, heart-warming, slow-burning rock-star romance. As usual Olivia delivered another well written story which had a great balance between erotica and romance. The sexy times were ...

    So let me just start off saying that I love me some Olivia Cunning. I fell in love with her when I read her Sinners on Tour series. One of the issues that I I'm having with this new series is the fact that there are a lot of outside factors and so much random drama. I do not mean to compare this series with Sinners but there is a huge difference when it comes to writing. In this series there seems to be a lot of outside people in order to make th...

    Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll…if any of those words are offensive to you, just stop reading now and move on...To Exodus End drummer, Steve Aimes, the world is his stage.

That is until up and coming rock band Baroquen is introduced, and Steve sets his eyes on keyboardist Roux Williams. Steve is all in when it comes to w...

Steve is a man with a big heart who can only love completely, h...

    This one is one hot rock star erotic novel. Exodus End drummer Steve falls for Roux the keyboardist of their new opening act Baroquen. They fall really quickly in love in each other but it is a problem Roux wants their relationship to begin after the European tour because she doesn't people to say their relationship was the one who gave them to be the opening act.

    I want MORE, I want DARE like now lol but I am so glad we got Steve’s story. This book was fantastic. I am a super fan lol I am invested, Sinners is one of my favorite series. Olivia can do Rock Stars and do them well. Steve Aimes is a secret sweetheart! I love the relationship he has with his band and with his best friend. When he falls, he falls hard, I love that his bandmates know this about him as well. His past relationships really kicked ...

    Hot drummer romance....anyone? My first book by this author and I have to say....what a pleasure! Steve Aimes is a drummer for band Exodus End when the beginning act is changed. All female band Baroquen takes stage for the European tour. Roux the keyboardist for band Baroquen takes an insta dislike to Steve when he basically calls them hookers upon meeting them....let the good times roll. What did I like? Instant attraction for Roux and Steve, hi...

    Another winner from this author. I really liked this one. The heroine was another strong female lead without being over-the-top out there. I liked that the typical sexual assault scene that seems to be in every romance novel now had a twist to it and was dealt with legally. I don't get the message authors are sending to women when they have characters stay quiet and unwilling to go through all the hassle of reporting. So I was glad to see this au...
