Insider tells the story of Logan Schmidt, Exodus End’s bassist player—
The Bassist? Yeah I hear you, you there in the back! What is it you say about the bassist being the less important to the band? Pfff. You, my friend, are clearly misguided. 
Yeah, sure, lead singers and guitars get to have direct spotlights, but without the bass, the whole sound would be hollow. The bass is the heart of that metal sound you like so much. Metal has groove and without the bass guitar? No groove.
Now that we set up some important truths, let me tell you what is was like to be on tour with Exodus End.


It was thrilling. Electrifying. Amazing. Exciting? Oh I could not even describe the levels of excitement to you. I mean, leaving H-24 in a closed up space with 4 rock gods?
The book was damn near unputdownable. The characters charmed the pants out of me. All of them.
Though Insider tells the story of Logan Schmidt and Toni Nichols, it focuses here and then on the other Exodus End’s band members and I loved every snippet I got the pleasure to read about Dare Mills and the rest of the band. You’ll also get to meet or meet again, the Sinners… Oh yeah. 

The heroine, Toni Nichols, has got to be the most endearing and hilarious virgin I’ve ever read! It’s rare for me not to get annoyed by a too naive young woman, but somehow and I’m not sure why exactly, I loved her a lot! Her inner monologue had me laughing out loud more than once and her candidness created the most hilarious dialogues.

She was naked.
With a man. And not just any man. This man. Somehow she’d imagined sex should always occur in a bed beneath the covers in the dark. But apparently on a sofa in the back of a tour bus with all the lights on worked just fine too.


Toni is a smart woman, she’s 25, her mother—a press guru— is trying to get her to replace her as the CEO of her notorious publishing company. She lost her father very young and had to quickly fill the role of the mother to her little sister, Birdie. Compensating the absence of her mom too wrapped up in business.
Toni has other plans though, she’s a creative person and is not interested in the business side of the company. Fortunately for her, she’s offered the great opportunity to follow for a few weeks, one of the most famous Rock Band on tour : Exodus End.
And what an opportunity, Toni is a real fan. With the excuse of working on interviews for an interactive book, she’s about to realize a dream and to finally do something of a drastic change from her good girl behavior! 

This is the part where I’m supposed to tell you to be a good girl and to carefully guard your heart, body, and soul from evil rock stars. I should advise you to stay away from excessive alcohol, drugs, sex, and backstage after-parties.

If you’re still a virgin next time I see you, I will promptly kidnap you, haul your ass to Vegas in the trunk of my car, and buy a bona fide man-whore to remove your V-chip.

Logan Schmidt’s character… Where do I even begin? I repeatedly scowled at his behavior, only to burst out of laughing one second later. Damn but the man was a real horny teenager in a sinfully sexy grown-up body! And the things he said!!! He would just sprout whatever was on his mind and not in a nice way. A real asshole. But damn if I didn’t laugh every time! 

I thought I could wait until you shaved it for me, but I’m going to have to risk the hairball.


I think I can’t recall the last book I’ve read with a man-whore so one-track minded. It was bad a times, but so good at the same time! He wasn’t considerate of his bed trophies in the least. The real stereotype of a man-whore. 
But on top of that, you can say the man has it all. The looks, the talent, the absolute charm and the bad boy attitude. He’s a risk taker, a thrill seeker, a sex god.

“God, I love you.”

Back to the story where Toni gets on Exodus End’s tour bus without knowing what to expect, she maybe had vague ideas, but she wasn’t near imagining what would happen to her. In a matter of minutes she’s soon to discover how much the life on a tour bus can be uncontrollably exciting. Especially in the vicinity of Logan Schmidt.

“You’re in trouble lamb.”


Logan is quick to claim his pray, and he wastes no time devouring his “lamb”. Yes you can talk about insta-lust, but the book being on the fun and light side, this wasn’t a problem for me at all. The sexual chemistry between them was on a rampage, sizzling hot is all I can say about it. Toni being a real secluded book geek, she is as inexperienced as it gets and that streak of innocence pleases Logan to no end. 

Was she really going to lose her virginity? To a gorgeous rock god with a huge cock?

Oh wow, this was really going to happen. He was going to shove himself inside her and get rid of her blasted virginity once and for all. But how on earth would that thing fit inside her? He was huge! Were all penises that enormous? The ones she’d glimpsed on the internet tended to be, but she was pretty sure they were enlarged with Photoshop. There was no artificial enlargement going on here. She could see with her own eyes. Logan grabbed the base and tilted his cock up and down. Toni followed his movement like a drunk taking a sobriety test.

Soon enough Logan is going to be brought down to his knees without realizing it, and if you’re like me, you’ll like witnessing him falling for the good girl despite his efforts to keep things light and no strings attached between them. 

“Lord, woman, I do love you.” “…I mean as a friend.”


One thing I loved most of all in this book—apart from the smoking hot sex— was the constant banter between them all. Of course there was the usual crude jokes between the band, but what really got me plastering a huge smile on my face was Logan and Toni’s banter. She was so clueless it created comical situations like you wouldn’t imagine. Logan took a real pleasure educating and tutoring her as well as toying with her and it was hilarious!

-“I can’t wait to squeeze them together around my cock and fuck them until I come all over your chest.”
-“Oh! So that’s how a guy fucks tits,” she blurted loudly. Very Loudly. Everyone within earshot burst out laughing.

-“Ouch! There’s a gearshift in my ass.”
-“Oh, sure, you barely know this car, and yet you’re already giving it privileges you won’t give me.”
-“Not inside my ass. It poked me in the hip.”
-“You got me all excited for nothing.”


One other thing will make you fall hard for Logan. I’m talking about his sweet side. He was the biggest contradiction ever at times, because he was reasoning and couldn’t let himself fall for Toni and would act like a huge jerk. But just seeing him interact with her, often saying spontaneous sweet and gentle words… And the way he was with Birdie… You could tell he was a great and sweet guy under disguise.

-“You don’t have to say things like that to get in my panties,”
-“But I do to make you smile.”

“Feels good, baby. You’re so beautiful. I’m crushing so hard on you right now.”

“I wish I could fast forward time a couple of hours so the show would be over and I could teach you more about making love.”

“Why are you so nice to me?”
“I have ulterior motives.”
“Such as?”
“Making you mine.”

Olivia Cunning is the erotica author who first shocked me when I started reading romance 3 years ago. I still have a very clear memory of “Backstage Pass“. But she shocked me in the most delightful way. She perverted me and I’m so grateful to her for it! She writes erotica like no other, she keeps her stories mostly on the fun side and every book I’ve read so far was deliciously dirty. If you like Rock Star romance, then you definitely want to give Olivia Cunning a try, you won’t be disappointed!


Next stop on Exodus End is Reagan’ story… We met her in Trey’s book, she’s in a menage relationship with Trey and Ethan. Their relationship has been discovered by the media and things are going to get rowdy for them. I can’t wait to read book 2!

Wonder Woman, infatuated, over.
