Book Whisperer's Rating:
From the moment he lays eyes on Sinners’ new front of house soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she’s too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention. Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy. But Eric makes her laugh and his constant attention makes her feel sexy and irresistible–exactly what she needs after the things her last lover said to her. A woman who gives as much as she takes, Rebekah makes Eric feel like a total stud–exactly what he needs after surviving a decade of watching the incredibly talented members of Sinners from the wings.
Straight off, the only part of this book that I am ignoring in my rating is Rebekah’s mother quoting scripture in a crazy way. To me, it put a negative light on Christianity and scripture and I felt like it would lower my rating including that part of the story so I am just going to ignore it.
What I am not going to ignore are the absolute hotness of these boys that make up the band. Holy moley! These boys are straight up dirty, sexy, and fun and I found myself shocked (many times) at what they were all willing to do or have done in the past. Granted, I have only read number four in this series so I don’t know the entire background to the other characters but I couldn’t help but love them in Wicked Beat.
Rebekah and Eric’s playfulness at the beginning was really cute but when the action starts (and let me tell you, it starts off kinda sweet for about two seconds) their moments are insanely hot. There was not a scene where I thought, “Oh, that moment between them was blah.” Never happened! It was always sizzling!
I enjoyed that at first, Rebekah sought after Trey but had a little thing on the side with Eric until it became a full, passionate relationship. It made me feel like Rebekah had her feet placed firmly on the ground by realizing that Eric had more substance for her than Trey did.
Wicked Beat was a sexy, hot book and I am sure the rest of the series is just about the same. In fact, I want to start from the beginning and continue the series as they come out.
