Series: One Night With Sole Regret #1


For the five sexy rock gods of Sole Regret, finding love is easy, keeping it is hard.

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?

My Thoughts

I was really excited to read on Olivia’s blog that she was going to self publish a new series so that she could continue writing where she’s just plain amazing.  talking about sexy hot rockers.  This is exactly what we get in these short / quick read novella types.

We meet our leading lady Melanie who is tagging along with her best friend Nikki who she just can’t say no to.  Nikki is infatuated with rockers and rock bands and has now decided to follow the band Sole Regret to multiple tour stops in the hopes of landing a night of steamy passion with Shade their lead singer – or any of them who will give her the time of day.

Melanie isn’t at all into the scene, especially since she was traumatized when she was 13 by a bunch of bikers who had her cornered so she has this fear of anyone who looks like a biker, who has tattoos and excess piercings.  means that she’s not going to have fun at this metal show at all right?  Some how her friend gets them both backstage and Nikki immediately does what she can to attract Shade and that leaves mel to push away those advances and find herself a nice corner to hide in until Nikki’s done.  What she doesn’t realize is that her corner has an occupant

said occupant is Force the drummer of the band, but since he’s wearing a baseball cap and has his tatts covered up, Mel doesn’t realize who he is.  (not that she would have otherwise)  he introduces himself to her as Gabe and they actually start to have a real conversation.  By the time that Mel learns who he is, she’s already smitten and so attracted to him that her fears kind of fall by the wayside.

Their story then takes us back to the hotel that the band is staying at where a night of steamy passion ensues.  We get to see Mel come alive since she’s been lacking in the big O department, and we learn that Gabe is quite capable himself of being able to not only bring pleasure to his partners, but to invent and create new ways to do it.

This was a sweet story since we see a budding relationship with 2 very sexy ‘geeks’ as they like to call themselves.  The question that comes up though is that we know that they want to give it a go as being something more than a one night stand – will that happen?

We also can’t forget that Nikki did eventually link up with Shade but who knows what’s going to come from that now that it’s in the past.  we know that Shade’s not the settling down type and that nikki says she’s not.

well…onto the next installment – which i believe is ‘tempt me’
