Product Description

A Sin Pointe Novel

Lonerby guitarist Luke Willoughby and his band are under tight scrutiny since a press conference was ruined by a band member’s sudden vomiting attack. They’ve been suspended from the Sin Pointe tour and Luke fears they’ve blown it for good. The last thing he expects is the cute management spy sent to observe him.

No-nonsense Sarrie Walker knows exactly what she’s there to do, and makes no secret of it. Luke is impressed—and powerfully attracted to Sarrie’s strong and sexy innocence. When they end up stuck together in close quarters, Sarrie becomes dangerously irresistible—and very much off-limits. Does she hold Luke’s second chance? And if he gives in to her powerful allure, what happens to his heart?

 

Excerpt:

Sarrie stepped carefully and mostly on tip toes out of the tiny, grime grouted shower. She’d had to waste one of their two usable towels for a floor mat and made sure to land on it.

The good news was that she no longer teetered on what she’d tell Mr. Keller when they made it to D.C.

Noah was sick and while he’d managed himself at these smaller gigs, he didn’t belong on a massive, nationwide Sin Pointe tour. She tried to picture him night after night and the binge drinking sessions. It hurt her heart to think of it but worse than that was picturing the landslide of sleepless nights Luke would have to suffer through caring for him. Sure, they might all hate her as a consequence, but that’s why it was called tough love. The truth hurt at first. And sometimes for a very long time after. But at least the person would be alive.

She grabbed for the towel she’d left on the toilet seat and found a loosely folded bunch of clothes. Not hers because they were too big and, she pulled the shirt to her nose, they smelled like Luke. “Mmmm.”

Her eyes popped open so wide she felt her lashes touch her brow bone. Yes, she’d just sighed at a man’s smell. It was a first. Maybe it was because her decision no longer hung over her head, but she could get lost in the fact she held the shirt he’d played in. She inhaled and the smell brought back visions of him serving as master of his guitar and the beads of sweat that had dotted his forehead, the one that hung from his nose, and the slick mass that had wet his chest hairs showing through the top of his V neck shirt. He’d been so lost in the music that he hadn’t seen her staring or cared about the sweat. She’d noticed more than she realized and had to stop and breathe through what that meant.

“So that’s it, Sarrie? You’re going there now?” she whispered to herself. “Unbelievable.”

Why shouldn’t she?

Because she’d never had these feelings for a man before? Because the two days she’d known Luke were clearly not long enough and she was here to study him, not fall into a foolish one-sided infatuation? Or was it that his life situation was too close a reminder of the one she’d finally saved herself and her father from? The heaviness of all those truths bowed her shoulders inward and down.

He’s gonna be dealing with Noah’s addiction for a long time to come, especially if he can’t stand to see his baby brother suffer. That’s what enablers did. She knew because she’d watched her mom tiptoe around her dad until the day Mom just didn’t come home.

Plopping down on the toilet seat, she bundled Luke’s jeans together with his shirt and hugged them. A sock fell from the pile. She found its match and could have cried at his selflessness. He was a good guy and he had a ton of hurt coming his way. For a second, she forgot where she was and nearly let her head fall back against the dingy bathroom wall.

Cold air leaking through the thin motel walls made her shiver. So did the thought of wearing Luke’s clothes. But after she made sure to dry off with the one towel, she pulled on her old panties and bra and then his jeans, which nearly fell right back down, and then slipped his V neck shirt over her head. The baggy look reminded her of the girls from TLC, but not one single day in her life had she ever felt crazy, sexy or cool. Well, maybe she could identify with the crazy part. Completely foreign to her was the thought of what Luke would think. And then she had an altogether more shocking thought. If his clothes were in here, what was he wearing?

Hot gusts of air puffed out from her lungs until she managed to calm them down. But all she could really think about were bare, strong shoulders and more than just the tiny glimpses she’d gotten of his chest in the V cut shirt she currently wore. She needed a drink of water. Badly. She wiggled her toes in his giant socks.

  1. The Romance Reviews 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2014

    TOUCH OF SIN by Carlene Love Flores is a beautiful Rock'n Roll Novella with hot sex scenes, tortured musicians and a young, loveable heroine.

    Sarrie is hired by the manager of a famous rock band to follow a small, up-and-coming act to assess them for their suitability as the opening act on the tour. She is excited and worried; this is the chance she has been waiting for. Her family is dependent on her keeping and succeeding in the job.

    Lonerby, the act she is following, is made up of Luke, the moral centre, his two brothers O and Noah, and a lead singer. Luke holds a strange fascination for Sarrie from the beginning. She is attracted, and so is he. But does he only like her because he knows his professional development will depend on her report? Or is it to thank her for her aid with the trouble his brother causes?

    The book is a hot, quick read, and well worth it. The characters are believable and enjoyable, their emotional reactions realistic and captivating. The sex is sensual and sweet at the same time, enough detail to let you grab for the ice water without the only too common triteness. If you like novels containing rock bands, their high jinx and the women they fall for, go buy this one.

  3. So Good 5 Star Review

    This was the first book by Carlene Love Flores I've read and I was blown away. The story was written so romantically I couldn't put the story down.


  4. Sweet and Endearing 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2014

    I really enjoyed this short but sweet story of Luke and Sarrie. When Sin Pointe manager sends sweet assistant Sarrie to observe Lonerby, he wants to know if the band are ready to tour with Sin Pointe. Honest and forthright Sarrie approaches Lonerby guitarist Luke and confesses why she is following the band. Luke remembers her as the cute girl from the studio but when they spend a disastrous night together, he sees her compassion and strength and falls for her hard.

    Sarrie is no stranger to the trials of living with an alcoholic, and although she wants to help Luke deal with his comatose brother and fellow band member Noah, she is determined to do the job she has been sent to do even if it ruins her blossoming relationship with the tortured hottie, Luke.

    I found Luke and Sarrie’s story very sweet and endearing. Luke and Sarrie are likeable and believable characters and they realise they have much in common. Sarrie’s strength belies her youthful innocence and she shows integrity and compassion in her work. Luke can’t deny his growing feelings for Sarrie, even when he wishes he could offer her more, as she deserves. I liked his vulnerability and passion for Sarrie, despite the difficult choices they both have to make.

    A great read with a great ending.


  5. Wow! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2014

    Wow...freaking wow! I loved this story! Luke was so sweet and Sarrie..wow so sweet and innocent. I can't get over how good of a guy Luke was. I loved this story! I do wish the story didn't skip how they met or when she was following the band around before revealing to Luke why she was really there. Thats ok though. Its forgivable since the story was so good.


  6. Sweet story 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2014

    This was a sweet story! I really enjoyed Sarrie and Luke. These two had more in common than I first thought. Sarrie was a stand up gal and really thoughtful. Luke was trying to take care of his younger brother and not live his life. I haven't read all of the Sin Pointe books, but this one is easy to follow along if you haven't read them all.
