**3.5 stars**Backstage Pass wasn't perfect, but I enjoyed it on different levels. It was hot and the setting was interesting, even if my idea of romance isn't having to clean up after 5 slobs.Brian isn't my idea of a romantic hero but I liked that he was vulnerable and with a constant need for approval. It just seemed real somehow given his background and creative genius. The beginning was a bit weird - at some point, I was laughing, thinking I was reading scenes in a porn movie. That part where Myrna walks in naked to the living room seemed so out of character that it didn't seem like her, but like a guy's imagination of what a woman would do if she gets hot for him all of a sudden. I was expecting Brian to wake up at any moment while it was happening.I have to thank this author for the bathroom scene. It was HILARIOUS and reminded the reader why having sex in a public bathroom is not a good idea - please take a pointer, J.R. Ward. I always imagine something like this happening in all those bathroom sex scenes you have in your books.Justine O. Keef was very good with the narration. Sometimes when I'm listening to really hot book in audio I have problems forgetting the narrator is there but this didn't happen to me here. Her male voices were really good too. I will definitely listen to something by her again.Although I enjoyed this book, I don't know that I have any desire to continue reading the series. I think it will be more of the same and although I liked the setting in one book, I don't know that I can read it in 5.
