A PREQUEL to the NA rock star series Lost In Oblivion.
Warning: Get ready for a testosterone overload. The guys are in the driver’s seat in Seduced – and the ride’s gonna rock.
Twenty-three year old Nick Crandall has one focus in his life: Oblivion, the band he formed with his best friend Simon Kagan. With gigs coming up and the band members lacking focus after losing their drummer to rehab, they’re out of ideas. Until Oblivion’s bassist, Deacon McCoy, poses a surprising suggestion.
Bring in someone new. Two someones.
One You Tube video gone viral later, Oblivion is poised on the brink of stardom. With their new hot drummer chick — who comes in a package deal with a talented guitarist who happens to be head over pick in unrequited love with her – it seems like everything’s falling into place. Or will the band Nick and Simon have fought to keep together disintegrate before their eyes?
Four guys & one woman + more success than they ever bargained for = trouble, of the sexiest kind.
Get Seduced by this novel-length introduction to the band Oblivion. This preview occurs before the four forthcoming books about each of the band members. Sometimes getting lost means finding yourself…
Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains explicit sex scenes and/or situations (including m/f/m menage) and adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.
Book Excerpt – Spicy
Nick stabbed his fingers into the mile-high bun Jazz had fixed on top of her head, wrecking the orderly curls, tearing them down while his tongue plunged between her lips. She moaned, loud and sharp, not tempering the sound. And he feasted on it, on her, sucking on her tongue, nipping her lips, swallowing that same grape-sweet taste she’d tormented him with before.
“Want me to go down on you?” he whispered between kisses. It wasn’t an offer he made often, though he had a feeling she’d be the exception to all of his rules.
She shook her head, hard and definite. “No. Just fingers. Please. Like last time.”
They didn’t speak after that. Didn’t do a damn thing except kiss and touch and pant hotly into each other’s mouths. Just like last time, she stroked his cock like she was manipulating her drumsticks. Up, down, up, down, squeezing, letting go. Over and over until he shoved her back against the wall and pushed his hand under her skirt. All he could think about was getting inside her.
She wore panties tonight, tiny frilly ones, and he ripped them aside and surged his fingers deep. She threw her head back, banging her skull. He pulled out and rubbed her piercing, amazed all over again that such perfection existed in his world. The memory of those pink crystals around her taut little clit could take him straight to heaven. But he wouldn’t go alone.
He spent extra time toying with the studs, testing her reactions to each flick and flutter. Building the urgency between them until they both trembled like plucked strings. Then he was playing her flesh like she’d played him and all he could hear were her ragged gasps, each of them ending on a single plea.
God, give me more.
She came in a pulsing gush against his palm, and he groaned as he dropped his forehead into the crook of her neck. Her brown sugar scent and the smell of her arousal wrapped around him, constricting his lungs, blocking his airflow. Then she dropped to her knees again and pulled down his zipper, taking him out so fast he couldn’t do more than pant his gratitude. Her lips closed around the head of his dick and he fisted his hands against the wall, one of them still soaked from her, lost to the sensation of her wet silky mouth riding up and down his length.
It didn’t take long. She remembered what he liked, and he’d been primed for the past week. He hadn’t let himself come on his own, knowing he’d see her behind his eyes. She’d be the cause of his orgasm even if he was all alone. So he’d held back, held off, somehow knowing they’d end up in this place again. His own touch would never be a decent substitute when he could have her.
At least he had her right now.
Thanks so much for having us on Books by Centeno, Kristy. We really appreciate the opportunity to talk about our guys from Oblivion. We’re on the tail end of the release of SEDUCED which is the introduction to our Lost in Oblivion series.
Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott is the crazy matchup of two music lovers. We both love all the amazing rock star books that are out there. Both of us loved the Olivia Cunning series which was one of the first rock star series to get some serious attention. There’s something innately seductive about musicians. From the bubbling emotions lurking under the ebb and flow of music, to the honesty of their words, and let’s not forget the hair. Heh.
At least I never do. LOL
But with all the creativity comes a slice of the crazy. Giving that much of yourself to the fans is exhausting and exhilarating. It’s very much like being an author only you have to cram all the emotion in a 4 minute song instead of 400 pages.
Oh and people have way more access to you when you’re a musician. They honestly want a piece of you every night. Whether it’s sexually, or just the blood, sweat and tears of you on stage—they want it all. And our boys (and girl) in Oblivion are happy to give it their all.
But with the blush of fame and the lures of excess there is also the flip side of losing yourself to the lifestyle. SEDUCED is the introduction to our series. We see the first fingers of fame draw the band in and the contracts from the music labels that want to own them. And we see that the brass ring has a lot more tarnish on it when you actually get to hold it.
So we have to let our guys navigate all those pitfalls. Oh and they actually find love in the middle of all that chaos.
Piece of cake right?
SEDUCED is the love story of a band and how they come to be. The next book in the series is ROCKED – and that’s where the individual love stories take hold. First up is the powerhouse bassist Deacon McCoy and the lovely and independent Harper Pruitt—also the tour chef on their first tour as an opening band.
We don’t make it easy on our guys both in the music storyline or their love lives, but we sure hope they’re worth the journey!

Taryn Elliott – She’s from the great state of New York–upstate NY…you know, above NYC by about three hours. Her family consists of a brother who takes care of keeping the snarky side of her alive and a dog that is more spoiled child than mutt. Her writer-friends are the glue that keeps her crazy ideas more in the sane category, and her non-writerly friends are the reason she’s not a complete hermit. She can’t go a day without laughing and truly does fall in love with each and every one of her leading men as she writes their book. Music is life and every story has its own soundtrack.
