    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.

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

    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 never drop his guard, and stop obsessing over the keyboardist in their new opening act. He didn’t want Roux’s band on this tour in the first place, but somehow she shattered his barriers without even trying. The only way he knows to save his heart from breaking is to make her his forever, so why does she keep pushing him away?

    The stage is her world…

    Roux Williams knows an opportunity like this only comes around once in a lifetime. Her band, Baroquen, has finally gotten their big break and are opening for Exodus End and Sinners—two powerhouses of rock—on the European leg of their world tour. She refuses to screw up this opportunity by getting involved with Steve Aimes no matter how gorgeous, sexy and surprisingly attentive he is. She can’t deny her attraction to him—the man has the body of a god and the face of a model—but he’s absolutely off limits. Maybe a lust-crazed weekend on a private island will get him out of her system. Or maybe she’ll fall even harder. Once the tour is over they can date, but until then she must keep her distance, because mixing business with pleasure is not only tabloid fodder, it’s professional suicide. But damn, why does he have to be so stubbornly irresistible?

    When their worlds are rattled by a ploy staged to destroy them, Exodus End’s infamous bad boy and Baroquen’s not-yet-famous good girl must figure out a way to have it all and each other.

    God, where to start? This book was such a good read, fun, entertaining, hot and sweet! Loved both characters, and their families. Now I want Dare's book so bad! Can't wait for more Exodus End!

    Hopefully the next two books won't take as long to be written as this one (2 years was too long... I can understand a year, but two? Mmmm).

    Anyways, glad Olivia Cunning could finish it!

    Happy read to everyone!

    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 half but overall, it's a great story and I was happy

Can't wait for Dare's story which is up next!

    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 between Steve and Zach was described as a 'perverse'

    I've knocked off a star because, shockingly for this author, a potential gay relationship between Steve and Zach was described as a 'perverse' thing???? And I mean, the people involved would never have been in a relationship, so I kind of see what she means, but that adjective was kind of a bad one to use, IMO.

    It dragged a little bit, because 172k words might've been a bit much, but it's been like 3 years so I'm not complaining. Can't wait for Book 3,

    It’s been like 2 years? Is the author not finishing this series?

    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)

    - [main character] stalks [other MC] by finding their address that [other MC] specifically has worked to hide for privacy reasons.

    - And then [MC] crumbled like a hot Cheeto when this stalkery behavior was brought up:

    - That weird phrasing towards the beginning of the book:

    - AND it was a least a third too long. Editing is key.

    In 2018 (...any year), this isn't it. I usually love Olivia's work but there isn't enough here to recommend.

    Steve Aimes??!!

    But ''out in late 2017''??? I guess I have to wait.

    I dunno if she's not making them like she used to... There were too many names and personalities and connections to follow, especially when you don't have a good memory like me. The leads and their connection; they weren't enough to keep me interested.
