Guys…..We are so not giving anything else up because you are just going to have to read it to find out.
We loved this instalment of the Oblivion on Tour series. We were taken on a sinfully delicious, heartbreaking journey. We laughed at the craziness of both Cody, Kitty and the band. Our hearts broke at the loss they felt. We held our breath hoping and praying for them to be together.
We fell in love with Cody and his humour, strength and vulnerability.
We fell in love with Kitty and her determination, her sass and personality.
Put these two together, you have one amazingly explosive read.
We recommend this novel to be placed on everyone’s TBR list…..You won’t be disappointed.
For us a 5 star read.

So, I have a bit of an obsession with music. All genres, really, but rock in particular. I own a guitar, bass, and at one time even had a set of drums. And while I tried to make my own music for a while, I realized I'm a better listener than player. However, I still have a soft spot in my heart for musicians, having dated a couple in the past and Warped Tour 2004 is one of my fond memories. And believe it or not, this was the first rock star book I've ever read!
Pure Torture was a quick read for me. Cody is a hot drummer with a wild streak. He blows through women like a rocket, with no plans to settle down. I could tell right away that this was going to be a steamy read. And boy was I right...
Then in comes Kitty, our bandmate's little sister who is "all grown up" and harboring a huge, long-time crush on Cody. When the two spot each other, the sparks are instant. And so is the temptation. But Cody realizes that Kitty is off limits and he tries his very best to avoid her flirty advances. For a while.
But the majority of the story deals with after the couple comes together and their struggles to find a sense of normalcy in such a strenuous situation. Long-distance, groupies, insecurities, and grief, eat away at Cody and Kitty's relationship.
My only real qualm with this story is Kitty's immaturity. It really shines through when she decides to lie to Cody. I won't go into further detail about it, but I lost a bit of respect for her, at that point. Sure, long distance relationships are hard for both parties. Having spent a considerable amount of time in a long-distance type of relationship, myself, I had a hard time pitying her. But that was due to my own life experience. I eventually forgave Kitty. Even fictional characters are allowed to be idiots and make mistakes. :)
This book definitely turned me on to the rest of the series. I will go back and read the first two books and look out for the next ones, too. Four suns and rock on!

Series:Oblivion on Tour #3
Genre(s):Rock Star Romance
Heat Level: 4 flames out of 5
Rating: 5 stars out of 5
This is Cody and Kitty’s story.
Cody is the drummer for Oblivion and Kitty is Nikki's little sister. Nikki is the singer of the band and is very protective of his sister.
When Cody see’s Kitty again for the first time in a year he is instantly attracted to her. Kitty has always had a crush on Cody and sets her sights on getting him in bed. I have to say some of the things Kitty pulls on Cody was hilarious but it worked.
They start sleeping with each other and continue to hide it from Nikki. When Kitty finds out she gets to go on tour with the band she lets her excitement get the best of her. Let’s just say Nikki finds out the truth and goes after Cody.
The story really heats up while Kitty’s on tour with the band. Then they get a heart wrenching call that brings them all back home. I had a few ugly cry moments. Things change for Kitty and Cody. Will they be able to make a long distance relationship work?
This is a great read. There are a few moments that shocked me and the letter by mom sent me over the edge. I love all the band members and their girlfriends. They all added a great element to the story. This is my first read in the series, I would say that Pure Torture can be read as a stand alone, although I plan to go back and get caught up. We do get to see a HEA with the chance of maybe seeing more from these two (she asks with fingers crossed). I look forward to the next book in the series. Thank you Tania Sparks for a great read.

Cody does put up a good fight, until he is alone with her, Kitty is determined and finally gets him to agree to a one night stand. Once they finally do the deed it seemed to me that's all they do. This is where I lost interest, I love hot sex between characters as much as the next person and having read the two previous books I had come to expect a better story.
There is an emotional aspect to the book that wasn't a surprise for me as others mentioned in their reviews. That part of the book played out almost to the letter in the previous book which was Nikki's story. I am looking forward to Scott and Hansen's books and hopefully the author finds the passion and depth the 2 previous books had again.
For starters the chemistry and banter between the two main characters Kitty and Cody was off the charts hot but it was also funny as hell. I loved that he was trying to play hard to get and Kitty was all no holding back and was going to do whatever she needed to do to spend one night with the hot drummer.
The book sucked me in from the very first chapter and had me glued until the very end. All the relationships between all the characters in this book are totally believable. Not only are some parts hot as hell but also this book had me all over the place; crying one minute and laughing the next. Both main characters are very likable and Cody did a few things that pissed me off. At one point I wanted to crawl into my kindle and junk punch him, but the majority of the book I really did like him. The plot as well as all the secondary characters kept this book extremely interesting. It just flowed beautifully and at the perfect pace. I never felt like skimming ahead. I hate when books are filled will fillers and useless crap that no one really cares about and this one most certainly was not.
“I’m sitting in a dark movie theatre with a rock star that seems to have no idea of what appropriate behavior in a public place is. And even worse he has absolutely no shame at all.”
I loved that is was in both Kitty’s and Cody’s point of view. I liked being able to know exactly what they were thinking. I am a huge fan of first person so was extremely happy this book was told that way. If you love rock star romance books you seriously need to give this series a shot. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Cody's the quintessential rock star in his views of the rocker lifestyle and his enjoyment of all the decadent delights offered to him. He's enjoyed many women over the years but the moment Kitty walks through the door they all fade from memory. Though he struggles with the forbidden fruit that is Kitty, he can't deny their combustible connection. It's ultimately endearing seeing him drawn to her so entirely and throughout their time together readers discover a softer and sweeter side to him. He shows a romantic and caring side to his usual jaded persona that drew me to him but left me angry over a choice he made late in the story that left his and Kitty's HEA in doubt. It's a choice that disappointed me yet added to the emotional ups and downs of this story and made it a more engaging story overall. Despite that I enjoyed his pairing with Kitty and the joy and heartbreak of their burgeoning relationship as it fully immersed me in the overall story.
Kitty has grown up to be a beautiful woman after years of being seen just as Nikki's little sister. She's always felt an attraction to Cody, but it's not until an unforgettable meeting puts them on equal footing, and thinking of the fires they could ignite, when things change. A one-night stand soon leads to more but when tragedy strikes their path to HEA becomes shadowed. Questions of keeping a long-distance love alive soon permeate the story as does Kitty's choice in where her life will lead her. Kitty's a strong-willed woman who knows what she wants and goes after it. That's not to say she doesn't make mistakes in her handling of their long-distance relationship. Flashes of immaturity and doubts have her bruising the tenuous connection she's made with Cody. Most importantly she's also a loyal and loving daughter, whose family is important to every member of the band, and its all these conflicts that keep readers on the edge of their seats with kleenex at hand.
This is an emotionally intense story with a few unexpected twists and turns that will leave readers screaming as well as crying. It's an engaging tale though too, full of scorching encounters and sexy banter between Kitty and Cody. Along with this memorable main couple comes an equally engaging cast of secondary characters who vividly depict the gritty and sexualized rocker lifestyle. It's a lifestyle teeming with groupies and drugs that leads to temptation and puts Kitty and Cody's HEA in doubt. Once the final page is turned though readers will feel exhausted but satisfied, despite a few flaws, counting down the days until the next installment in this steamy and angsty series!
