I’m finally back on track to writing my reviews, yaaay! Even when I can write my posts, I write mini-reviews on most every book I read in Goodreads, if you want to sent me a friend request there, CLICK HERE.
Dimpled smile of a boy
Hard body of a man
Sings like an angel
Fucks like the devil
I was stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place.
At fifteen, his poster hung on my bedroom wall. At twenty-five his body hovered over mine. Every girl’s fantasy became my reality. I was dating a rockstar. Yet I was slowly falling for another man. The problem was—the two men—they shared a tour bus.
Flynn Beckham was the opening act.
Dylan Ryder was the headliner.
What happens when the opening act begins to shine so bright, it seems to dim everything else in its wake?
I’ll tell you what happens. Things get ugly.
MY RATING: 4 Beastly stars
Although Beat is a standalone novel there is a previous book, Throb, that has our hero in it.
Speaking of our hero, Flynn is such a great combination of sweet and sexy in a rockstar!
The story in Beat stars when Flynn goes to our heroine’s bar, Lucky’s. Lucky’s is the bar that Lucky, our heroine, opened years ago and now is owned by her and her best friend. Lucky is also an amazing singer, and her parents were rockstars as well, but she that has stage fright after a traumatic event in her past and now works as a voice coach.
Flynn is immediately taken by her. And you can say she was also taken by him. The only problem? She actually has a boyfriend. And he is a rockstar. But so is Flynn, although he is fairly new in the business compared to Dylan.
Dylan is Lucky’s boyfriend and singer in the band Easy Ryder and Flynn’s band In Like Flynn is actually their new opening act. Plus when their bass player need a time out so Flynn is called to fill in for him too. Soon enough Dylan is jealous of all the attention Flynn gets. Not only he is super hot, he also sings very well. Even better than Dylan I dare say.
Dylan is a jerk in my opinion. He wants Lucky to be on his beck and call. She even sells part of her bar to her best friend so she won’t work there anymore. She’s their label’s voice coach and Dylan has his way to make her go on tour with them to coach Flynn. And that was just one of his many mistakes, because Lucky and Flynn’s chemistry is undeniable. The tension is off the charts.
I loved how sweet Flynn was and all the ways he comes up to help Lucky with her stage fright. Also, his little niece, Laney, was absolutely adorable! There’s something about a book hero that gets along with children, right?! They are even sexier!!
Flynn is one of those rockstars that are sweet and approachable, yet hot and sexy. So when Lucky can’t decide soon enough who she wants, her boyfriend whose posters she had in her bedroom wall since she was a teen (and she could’t believe she started dating years later) or the sexy new rockstar that enters her life, it breaks Flynn’s heart a bit.
But she isn’t a wishy-washy, indecisive heroine. I hate those kinds. She actually knows what she wants, she just needs to have the courage to go and get it!
I really liked Beat. The writing, the characters, the story. They were GREAT!
One thing I wish that was different, though, is that I wish it focused a bit more on Lucky’s problem and her “steps” to overcome it!
I wouldn’t mind a little bit more into the story either, because who wouldn’t want a bit more of Flynn????
Beat was steamy, but it also have a great story, so it’s the kind of steamy that I enjoy! Vi Keeland did a great job with it and now I want to read Throb and meet Flynn back then to see who is the crazy lady that actually let him go. Lucky for us, he did find his way into his own story (pun intended)!!!

Despite the fact that Lucky had just casually mentioned that the lobby lounge serves coffee beginning at six a.m., I’m pretty sure of myself that she’ll be down there. But when I step off the elevator, the lobby is quiet. Empty. The coffee urns are just being set up in the lounge. I pour two mugs, make them just as we like it, and settle on one of the couches on the far side of the room where it’s private, yet I can still keep an eye on the door.
I grab a newspaper and begin to flip through to kill time. Then my eyes catch a pair of pink-painted toes in flip-flops. I don’t know why, but it’s in this moment that I realize, I’m fucked.
The sight of her toes makes me smile.
I’m falling for another guy’s girl. Something I promised myself I’d never do.
But then I reason with myself. I haven’t done anything wrong. Thinking a woman is beautiful and spending time with her doesn’t have to turn into anything, right? They’re just toes after all. But look how cute they are. I’ve never been a foot guy, yet I wouldn’t mind sucking… Stop. Just stop. We’re just friends.
Because I’ve been friends with so many hot women in the past and not fucked them? Yep. I’m screwed. I need to get the hell out of here.
“Good morning,” she whispers and smiles down at me. My eyes lazily travel up from her toes.
I’m totally not going anywhere.
I hold up her mug of coffee. And then I realize she still has the thin shirt she wears to sleep on and I’m eye-level with the sexiest taut nipples I’ve ever seen.
Screw sucking her toes… “Certainly is.” I grin.
