Insider (Exodus End #1) by Olivia Cunning



Reviewed by Tabatha


Insider is the start of the much anticipated Exodus End series, and I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to read this book. From the very start you can tell this is going to be one heck of a fun ride! We all know I'm a bit of a sucker for rock star romances, but Olivia's books have always been my favorites. She really embraces that whole rocker lifestyle and gives her characters so much depth. I just love them all so much!

Toni is sent on assignment to follow the band Exodus End to do a digital biography of them. Despite her editor believing she isn't the right woman for the job, she sets out to join the band on tour.  She is kind of a mouse in a den of wolves, but I liked that she also wasn't a shrinking violet either. The sexy as sin bass player, Logan Schmidt, is drawn to her from the moment he sees her. The sparks fly and the chemistry between these two is quite explosive. Toni and Logan embark on a sexual education of sorts for Toni, but I really adored just how sweet Logan was as well.

The one thing that did nag at me a bit was the ending. It did seem rather predictable and rushed given the huge build-up. I don't play to spoil anything by making any further comments, but it did bother me enough to drop a half star to make this a 4.5 for me.

Overall, this was definitely everything that I expected it to be. Olivia did a great job. I know the fall-out of Toni's mistakes are going to play out in the rest of this series, so I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. I'm going to blame that mostly on Trey from Sinners though, because I'm beyond excited to revisit his relationship with Regan and Ethan!
