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.

I was nervous when I started this book.  I normally love everything Keeland writes but before I started Beat, I read Throb and couldn’t get into it no matter how hard I tried.  So you understand why I was nervous but within a few pages of this book, I realized that I didn’t have to be. 

Flynn and Lucky’s story is pretty darn amazing!  I really liked Flynn in the first book and was sad to see his heart broken a little when he didn’t get the girl at the end.  However, if he got the girl, he would have never been thrown into opening for Dylan’s band and meeting Lucky, Dylan’s girlfriend.

I will say that Flynn was it for me.  Something about his character made his book stand out and demand to be gobbled up.  He is not only a sweet brother and uncle (yes, he has an niece named Laney and she is adorable!) and in general, a great guy, but Flynn is also so sexy and dirty and everything you expect a nice guy not to be.  And let’s just thrown in the fact that he is truly enamored by Lucky and because she is taken, he won’t cross that line but the more time he spends with her, the more that line becomes blurred.  Both fight the attraction that they feel for one another but it continues to get stronger and stronger. 

This is the kind of book that I love – the kind that makes me want to push two people together no matter how much it will hurt others and the kind that makes me wish Flynn was real instead of a written character.
