Book Review: Backstage Pass: Sinners On Tour

I have to point out something before I start this review. I’ve never been into the whole “meet your favorite celebrity or musician and then sleep with them” that has never been in my heart to do. Sometimes I actually thank God I’m handicapped so it’s not that big of a temptation since if I was to ever meet anybody famous I had a crush on, they’d talk to him and after it was over they’d run like hell. So with that being said, when I started reading this book it started out being something new and as I was ending it, I learned to hate it that much more.

So “Love, Sex, and Rock N’ Roll” and thank God for no drugs in this book. With reading four rockstar biographies I really don’t want to read a book with all of those being in it for a while. I enjoyed reading this book. Seriously, I enjoyed getting to know this fictional band and fictional characters. I loved the chemistry between the two main characters Myrna (a sex professor) and Brian (a lead guitarist) and the good and bad times in their little “fling.” I’m using that term a lot. A woman who is not too sure how to react to Brian and a guy who is on the rebound as a hopeless romantic. They found love in all the right places. However that word would hard to let out than everything else.

As I was reading it, mostly as I was finishing the book, I started thinking about all the rock bands I listen to and see who could fit each character besides Myrna. For some odd reason I can’t figure out a woman who remind me of her. There are five members in the band Sinners, good band name I will say that. I wasn’t going by looks in the book, I was mostly going by personality and how they acted. I’m not going to lie when I first started reading this book, I imagined the guys of Avenged Sevenfold as the Sinners band members. I still think Synster Gates would be a good Jace, even though Jace was a bass player. I think Reid Henry of My Darkest Days would make a great Trey. I also though of Doug Oliver from My Darkest Days as Eric Sticks, but I’m not so sure. Sed and Brian, I haven’t been able to figure out. I tried to imagine Ivan Moody and Zoltan Bathory of Five Finger Death Punch as them but couldn’t do it.

The last two chapters have got to be my favorite chapters out of the entire book. I understood the reason why Myrna didn’t want to exactly love Brian, not because he was a rockstar. Mostly because she couldn’t get over how her ex-husband treating her like crap and stuff like that. She knew Brian was falling for her but she also knew how much she didn’t want to hear those three words come out of his mouth. She was very careful, if you want to use that. She didn’t want to fall for him even though it was kind of hard not to. Even I was falling for him. I’m not going to lie, I was so happy that this is indeed a fictional band. However if there is a band out there that has a guitarist that acts like Brian, God help him. Every woman wants a guy that is not every guy, someone she can trust, excite her, and surprise her. Myrna was one lucky woman. Thank God for Brian for having the patientence too. I need to buy the second book as soon as possible.
