After all, no one else needs to know...
Oblivion on Tour #3
Releasing July 29th, 2016
Cody’s the sexy drummer extraordinaire of the hard rock band Oblivion.
Kitty’s the little sister of one of Cody’s band mates and she’s had a secret crush on him for years.
When the band are back home for a few days, the chemistry between them is both unexpected and undeniably off-the-charts.
She quickly realizes that the prospect of having what she’s always fantasized about is a very real possibility.
He quickly realizes that although he feels this mind-blowing attraction towards her, she’s the little sister of one of his band mates - he would get his ass kicked from here to hell if he ever laid a finger on her!
But can Kitty convince him? After all, no one else needs to know, a one-time hook-up might suit both of them…or could it ruin everything?
I sit down in an empty space on the chair right next to him. He can’t get up and move now, it would be way too obvious to the others that he’s trying to avoid me. I smile and sarcastically chirp, “You having a good time Cody?”
He groans and responds grouchily, “No, not really.”
I lean in close to him, so close that I can feel the heat from his skin. I place my hand on his knee and see him suck in a deep breath. I purr, “Why don’t you come up and have a dance.”
His response is abrupt. “No thanks.”
Hansen, who’s sitting on the other side of him punches him playfully on the shoulder as he reprimands, “Don’t be such a dickhead Sticks. If a beautiful lady asks you to dance, you fucking drag your sorry ass out of that seat and go and dance.” Hansen pushes him, nudging him roughly out of his seat. Cody tumbles off his chair but quickly gains his footing as he glares irately at Hansen.
I quickly take advantage of the opportunity by springing out of my chair and securing Cody’s hand in mine. I tug on his arm, “Come on Cody, it’ll be fun, I promise.” Cody just responds with a grunt as I start to drag him reluctantly to the dance floor. After a few steps he takes control and it’s him that’s practically dragging me as we push our way into the middle of the crowd. We’re so far into the vibrating and moving swarm of people that we’re completely out of sight from the VIP area. Until now Cody had kept his distance but as soon as we reach a spot where he’s obviously satisfied that we can’t be seen by his bandmates, he grabs me roughly around my body, one hand clasping my ass and the other around my waist as he crushes our bodies together. I can feel his hard muscled torso pressing against my soft curves and he feels so darned good. His eyes focus on mine and the heat and lust radiating off him is voracious. As he starts to move erotically against me he rumbles, “You’re fuckin’ killing me Kitty. I’ve tried to keep my distance, but you’re making it near impossible.” His face is so close to mine that I can feel his breath as he groans, “You’re such a massive tease.”
Pure Torture is my first Tania Sparks book, but I've already gone and purchased the previous books in this series to dig into. Though this is book three in the series, I didn't have a problem following along with the story, so I'd say it can definitely be read a standalone.
One of my favorite tropes is Brother's best friend - so obviously the set up for this book worked for me from the start, even though its a smidge different. Another winning point this book had going for it from the synopsis alone was Rockstar! Who doesn't love a good Rockstar romance?
Our cast of characters include Cody, the drummer of the band, and Kitty, little sister to the guitarist. Kitty's had a serious crush on Cody for a while and when the come around together, the chemistry explodes between them, Kitty feels like maybe they stand a chance. Cody, who feels a familial closeness to his band and its members doesn't want to cause any problems, so he tries to stay away from Kitty, denying his feelings.
This story is full of drama, angst and all the rest that entail a rockstar book, the groupies, the partying, drugs and all the rest. There were moments in the book, where I wanted to smack some sense into the characters, and moments where I wanted to give them a hug and maybe share a cry or two. The push and pull struggle between Cody and Kitty felt sort of overdone, but also was believable.
I really enjoyed getting to know not just Cody and Kitty, but the rest of the band members, and their girlfriends (those who had them). The group definitely was close and you could feel the way they cared about each other.
Pure Torture definitely brings on the heat, with lots of steamy scenes and power chemistry. There is no denying the spark between these two characters.
I can't wait to go back and read the previous books in this series to learn more about each character and the group as a whole.

Tania Sparks is a romantic at heart who genuinely believes in true love and soul mates. She met her husband while still at school, she was sixteen, he was seventeen. They are high school sweethearts who more than twenty five years later are still very much in love and are happily married with two beautiful daughters.
Tania does have a full time job, but in her spare minutes enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and reading. She's an avid reader who tends to chomp through a large volume of books, mainly in the romance genre. Her other major 'hobby' is writing steamy rock star erotic romances!
In 2014, after finding herself constantly being inspired by numerous romance novels, she decided to try her hand at writing. After penning her first scene she discovered that she enjoyed it immensely and so resolved to continue with the rest of the story that was swirling in her imagination. That story resulted in her first novel, Heaven Sent which is the first book in her Oblivion on Tour Series. This was soon followed by Bolt From The Blue and Pure Torture. Each book in the series is a stand-alone story which follows a different band member from a hard rock group called Oblivion - and of course the feisty ladies that steal their hearts! The other books in the series are at various stages of completion.
Now-a-days Tania finds it very difficult to control her imagination and swears that her rock stars are constantly chanting their stories in her head. She can't wait to share them with you...
