I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Reagan Elliot should be living her dream...
She’s touring with Exodus End as their new rhythm guitarist and gaining more notoriety and fame than she ever imagined possible.
She’s earned the devoted love of not only one, but two spectacular men. Her committed threesome with sexy guitarist Trey Mills and her hunky bodyguard Ethan Conner is stable, loving, deep, and satisfying for all involved.
But sometimes the world sees things differently and is determined to destroy what it doesn’t understand.
Can Reagan’s relationship with Trey and Ethan survive the cruel backlash of the media, her family, and a bigoted public? Or will the talented musician lose everything she holds dear in the face of her own burgeoning doubts?
Outsider is the second book in the Exodus End World Tour series. It’s also the sequel to Double Time, the fifth book in the Sinners on Tour series.

When I started reading English books, I was in for the smut book. I didn’t know any better, but along the way I found books and authors who were able to combine smut with a genuine storyline, and one of those authors was Olivia Cunning.
The love story of Trey, Reagan and Ethan started in the final book of the Sinners series, but the fans were told, there wouldn’t be a conclusion to the story, since it would overlap with Reagan’s book in the Exodus End series. So I have been trying very patiently (and failing) for Trey and co. to FINALLY get their happy ending, and here we are.
Outsider; Reagan’s book is what we have been waiting for. This is the love story between three people who are complete when they all three are together, and show how it is possible to love more than one person at a time. However, this is more than a love story. It is a story of self-discovery, for Reagan and her trying to find her place in Exodus End, Ethan as he accepts who he is, and where he belongs, and Trey figuring out that he can love with all his heart, but he can’t just give. Love is a compromise, but you can’t compromise yourself for love.
This is a long book, which makes sense, considering how much backstory that needs to be incorporated, to make it a complete story, and filling in some caps from the pervious books in this intertwined series. There were a few passages I felt were too long and I skimmed, but that was more based on the fact that I felt it wasn’t too important to the overall story. But the love story, the heart of this book, was good and the intimate moments were great. As per usual, Miss Cunning shows she really is a master of writing sex scenes without them getting pornographic, but yet, very graphic.
However, I do have one thing that bothers me, the book is called Outsider, as it describes Reagan’s feelings within Exodus End, and I felt that part of the story was put too much on the backburner. I would have loved to see that plot line get settled or at least advanced more than it did, but hopefully this is meant as some kind of cliffhanger which will progress into the next installment of this series.
I would normally rate this book at 3.5 stars, but there is one reason, and one reason only, I have decided to give 4.0 stars, and his name is Darren Edward Lunar Mills. Side characters can make or break a story, and in this case, he enhanced it.
He s the perfect big brother to Trey; understanding, loving and doesn’t mind playing shrink to help him understand himself. But what really brought me to my knees about him is his love and devotion for everyone around him. I found myself thinking more about Dare, in my intermissions with this book, than on the love story between Reagan, Ethan, and Trey. This is something that really makes him stand out, and why he is deserving of half a star on his own.
