Book #3 in reading order of events in book series, per author
There are things in bassist Jace Seymour’s past that he is unwilling to share with anyone. To cover his guilt and anguish, he seeks dominatrix Mistress V (Aggie) to temporarily placate his inner turmoil.
Aggie doesn’t have much use for men–besides the power rush she gets when they’re begging for mercy at her feet–but Jace isn’t like her usual clients. His cool defiance and unexpected dominance in the bedroom drives her to distraction and quickly steals her heart.
When circumstances threaten Jace’s position in Sinners, Aggie must help him regain his rightful place in the band while showing him that time and love can heal all wounds.
Hot Ticket by Olivia Cunning was a big mix for me. There were some great parts of the story and some great characters, but something about the book kept me from getting completely invested in the story and loving it.
My favorite part of the book was watching Aggie and Jace fall in love, yet there was some element to their relationship that put me off. I really enjoyed Eric as a character – he is so wacky. The writing and the plot were the weakest point of the book for me. Basically I liked everything about Hot Ticket, but nothing really pushed it to the next level for me.
While I wasn’t completely enthralled by this one, I think I will definitely be checking out the other characters’ stories. This was my first Olivia Cunning book and I’d like to see where her writing takes her next.
