Release Day Blast - Pure Torture (Oblivion on Tour, #3) by Tania Sparks

Pure Torture
Oblivion on Tour, #3
by Tania Sparks
Releasing July 29th 2016

From The Book Junkie Reads . . . Pure Torture (Oblivion on Tour, #) . . .
Kitty was an adult that just happens to be the kid sister of a fellow band made to Cody. Why hinder what you want because of the brother that you work with? There was more to all that than her kid sister status. Come in and join the tour to find out the answers. The why of it all. The how of it all. The darkness, depravity, desire, and dirty of life on tour with Oblivion. Even when they go home the d's are not far behind. They can be found everywhere they go. 

Kitty knew what she wanted and was patient. She was willful and determined. Cody just was oblivious to what was before him. He still was not clear on it when Kitty was right before his eyes. Disbelief and maybe even a little dumb struck he was. The ongoing sex, drugs, sex, groupies, sex, language, sex, and more. There were times things felt rushed. There were times of raw emotions. There was times of lots of things.

I was told this was a standalone book but I felt that I needed to read the first two books to get the background information on the characters and the references made here and there about various things. I did enjoy my read but I felt that my experience could have been more.

Oblivion on Tour series:
Heaven Sent - Oblivion on Tour, #1
Bolt from the Blue - Oblivion on Tour, #2
Pure Torture - Oblivion on Tour, #3

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.”

1.    How would you describe your style of writing to someone that has never read your work?
My books are all written in the first person point of view, mainly from the view point of the ladies that steal my rock stars hearts. My writing style is quite raunchy with lots of steamy sex scenes, coupled with a lot of emotion and struggles that need to be overcome before my hero and heroine find their happy ever after.

2.    What mind set or routine do you feel the need to set when preparing to write (in general whether you are working on a project or just free writing)?
I need to be locked away in my writing cave, usually accompanied by coffee and chocolate or even a glass of wine. I like to listen to inspiring music when I am doing prep work or organising things, but once I start writing, I need quiet so that my mind can hear what my rock stars are telling me!

3.    Do you take your character prep to heart? Do you nurture the growth of each character all the way through to the page? Do you people watch to help with development? Or do you build upon your character during story creation?
Yes I do heaps of character prep. Before I even start writing I have notebooks and flip charts full of character descriptions, possible scenes, ideas of attitude, personality and looks. Once I start to write I use these things as a starting point, but the characters quite often develop as the story progresses. The characters evolve as they need to adapt and learn to cope with the struggles I throw at them. And yes I definitely people watch – it’s one of my favorite things to do - people are fascinating!

4.    Have you found yourself bonding with any particular character? If so which one(s)?
I bond with all my characters – sometimes I forget they are not real people!  However, Ash and Eve from Heaven Sent will always have a special place in my heart – they were my first characters I ever wrote and the whole thing of re-discovering each other after such a long absence tugs at my heart strings.

5.    Do you have a character that you have been working on that you can't wait to put to paper?
Yes, I’m currently working on Book 4 in the Oblivion on Tour Series which is Scott’s story. Scott’s the lead singer of Oblivion and I’m loving his cocky, sometimes quite arrogant but sexy as hell attitude!

6.    Have you ever felt that there was something inside of you that you couldn't control? If so what? If no what spurs you to reach for the unexperienced?
Writing about sexy-as-hell rock stars has sort of become a bit of an obsession for me. If I don’t get to writing for more than a few days, I get very antsy and need to get back to my keyboard – I simply can’t control my imagination!

7.    Is there one character you find so special you are having a hard time coming up with his/her story?
No, I’ve been very lucky so far. Once I start working on my character development, the story just sort of comes to me. Fingers crossed, that continues!

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!

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..
