Take Me To Paradise (Sinners#7) by Olivia Cunning
Adult Contemporary Novella. Doesn’t really stand alone.
Take Me to Paradise by Olivia Cunning is actually like a second epilogue to Backstage Pass, which is still one of my favorite all-time books. Brian may always be my top book boyfriend. I was feeling the need for some Sinners while I was waiting for Insider (Exodus End #1), the Sinners spin-off, when I realized I never read this! Eek! How could I fall behind on an Olivia Cunning book?
This quick, hot little read is another book in the series that falls out of order, so it was kind of strange being thrown into the past, before Trey’s book. Myrna is still worried about Trey’s obsession over Brian.
Take Me To Paradise takes place right after the bus accident, when they are on a tour break. Perfect time for Myrna and Brian to get away and get serious about making a baby. They have been trying for months with no luck, and Myrna is worried about her age being the problem.
“Myrna, I didn’t want to marry someone younger. I wanted to marry you. You know I don’t give a fuck about your age.”
“I can’t help but think if I was ten years younger, this wouldn’t be an issue. I’d have been knocked up the second I got off birth control.”
Brian was always the romantic one in the relationship. It was fun to see Myrna try for a change, she was so insecure about it!
“Surprise!” she said. “What do you think? Is it romantic?” His heart thudded as it occurred to him that she was trying to be romantic for him. His Myrna— whose romantic streak was normally hair-thin— had arranged this outing to give him the warm fuzzies. And it had definitely worked. The location was spectacularly romantic, but his wife’s gesture was what had his eyes strangely misty.
There was a big side story with a stalker that took away from a lot of the romance I was looking for, but still, Master Sinclair is hot and sexy as fuck, and still a sweet romantic.
- I love visiting The Sinners!
- More of Brian Sinclair….swoon.
- Lots of hot and sexy scenes.
- It was more than an epilogue, there was an entire storyline.
- A little too much side story.
- I actually liked Myrna a little less after this read, I had really loved her before.
- Out of whack timeline, this took place before Trey’s book.
Rating 4 stars (for a novella), 4.5 Heat
