He’s the wildest guy in his band, but falling for a virgin groupie-in-disguise might be his craziest move yet.

Keyboardist West Reynolds’s idea of commitment? Going out for breakfast with a woman after a night of bed-breaking action. The only thing he gets serious about is Warning Sign, the band he formed with his two best friends. Then he meets a woman being hauled off by security, and she’s fascinated by him.

To her, he’s a subject to study. Like a bug under a microscope with a big…head.

Lauren Bryant is a student of psychology, and now she’s going in depth on rockstars. Specifically, fans. What makes a woman turn into a lust-driven groupie?

Is it the music?

The fame?

The men?

She isn’t sure, but she never expected to get her own night with a rockstar. One where he’s on top, doing some studying of his own…

She isn’t sure, but she never expected to get her own night with a rockstar. And she just figured out the ultimate way to get inside a subject is to let the subject inside you…

The Delight

Good time guy meets virginal researcher and fun time, not to mention funny times arise. A love triangle, some rock tunes and a little blunt talking make this a fantastic read.


What a cute and sexy story. How can it be cute and sex at the same time? Well, I don’t really know.

We have Lauren – virgin, never done drugs, never been drunk – and lacks the social norms on how to function without being blunt, over exuberant and quirky. Going to Warning Sign concert frees her from the constricts of society, where everyone can just be themselves. Deciding to research sexuality, she goes about innocently stalking Warning Sign where she hooks up with West Reynolds.

West Reynolds is an originally member of Warning Sign, a band he created with his best friends.  There are lots of stories about his man-whore ways, but he is honest and up front…and don’t believe everything you read in tabloids.

West makes things easy without being such an asshole. He digs the often naive, but smart things Lauren spouts on her road to understanding groupies sexuality. She may be innocent, but she is also adventurous. Most men would take advantage, but West is such a good guy and helps lead her to her discoveries, losing a little of his heart each day to her.

Lauren’s often bluntness is refreshing and humorous, keeping this from being to bogged down with drama. Warning Sign is still an upcoming band with all the stress drive to make it big. Lauren adds a new layer to the group without actually being a part of the band. This is probably one of my favorite books in this series.

Throw in Lauren’s best friend, Ethan, who thinks he’s in love with Lauren, but also has his own man-whore ways. The love triangle doesn’t get too heated, but you feel for the man who doesn’t get the woman in the end. But don’t worry, he gets his chance in a later story.

This series moves on through the band members, with each giving a little more piece of the band to us. This was a slice of heaven in things to come.

About Cari Quinn

USA TODAY bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story–a bible parable–in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. She attempted her first romance in junior high, long before she’d ever read one. Writing what she knew always took a backseat to what she wanted to know, and that still holds true today.

Though she also fires up her computer as a graphic designer, proofreader and editor, she can’t resist the lure of disappearing into a world of her own creation. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars.

The only thing she loves more than writing is hearing from readers! Please visit her at her website at

About Taryn Elliott

I’m USA Today Bestselling author Taryn Elliott. I’m a music freak who loves everything about telling stories. I have way too many ideas rattling around in my head, but music almost always ends up in the story somehow. I’m very lucky to have a job that allows me to slip into the shoes of musicians, actors, business women, tycoons, bodyguards, chefs, bakers, carpenters, inventors, bartenders, wine makers, artists, and so many more characters to come. Talk about living the dream.

Oh, and I write 85% of this with my bestie and writing partner, Cari Quinn. We also write super sexy paranormal romance and erotic romance under Taryn Quinn.

Enough about me…go read about one of my hot guys. They’re far more interesting. 😉

  1. Ooo this one sounds fantastic! Lauren sounds like a great MC. I feel like I would really appreciate her bluntness. West also seems like a bad boy with a good heart – my favorite kind! Great review! 🙂
