The Sinners are irresistible, and Cunning delivers again with this constantly surprising, sizzling fourth installment. By turns funny, kinky and touching, this one’s a series highlight, featuring a couple who complete each other. The hero’s quirky habits and less-than-suave outbursts make him irresistible, while the irrepressible heroine is a survivor whose courage and creativity make for some unforgettable nights. A must-read for fans and newcomers alike.
Rebekah Blake wants to be taken seriously as a professional, but no band seems to want to hire a woman. When her brother is injured, she sees her chance to take his place as front-of-house soundboard operator for the Sinners — as well as her chance to have guitarist Trey Mills all to herself. But when Rebekah meets drummer Eric Sticks for the first time, her long-simmering desires begin to change. Impulsive, awkward and earnest, Eric has always kept to the shadows, unsure of himself around the other Sinners. For a chance with Rebekah, however, he’s ready to do whatever it takes to win her attention — and her heart. (SOURCEBOOKS, Aug., 416 pp., $13.99)
