From New York Times and USA Today best seller Vi Keeland comes a steamy new standalone novel about a rockstar. Or two.
Dimpled smile of a boy
Hard body of a man
Sings like an angel
F***s like the devil
I was stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place. At 15, his poster hung on my bedroom wall. At 25 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.

This was a cute story, not all that hot in the romance department, so if you are looking for explicit love scenes, look elsewhere. A very good story that kept my interest even without having those scenes however. Another Rockstar romance book that's worth a credit for sure.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Lucky is part owner of Lucky's - a Bar that has a small stage and famous and not so famous Musicians make unscheduled appearances to perform or just drink there and where people can enjoy embarrassing themselves at Karaoke too. That's where Lucky first gave the oh so beautiful and dimpled Flynn a screaming orgasm (a drink ladies!!) and they were immediately drawn to each other but, as tempting as Flynn was... especially when he sang to Lucky, and as sweet as he asked her out, Lucky had to resist his many many charms.
The next time they met Lucky's in the arms of the world famous lead singer Dylan Ryder of the Rock Band Easy Ryder.... and Flynn's Band is hoping to go on tour with them (Oops). But first, kFlynn finds himself standing in for one of the Musicians and sharing a Tour Bus with Lucky, the woman of his dreams and her arrogant boyfriend and it's sheer torture for him. From then on the mutual attraction continues to simmer and sizzle... first they agree to become friends because Lucky's been brought on tour to be Voice Coach for Flynn as he has a slight problem and they spend lots of time together - all of it is very tender, touching and romantic. However over time, their compatibility along with the pull, chemistry and sizzles whenever they touched, ended up to be too great a temptation for both of them to resist anymore.... but yes, Lucky did try over and over again to resist.
Lucky didn't want to be a cheater, she kept making excuses up so not to nhave sex with her boyfriend Dylan but behind the scenes Dylan was no Saint.... whereas Flynn was - never giving in to Groupie temptation which was all around because his focus, only desire and goal was Lucky. And so it went on - Lucky was in a relationship that she had once thought was great (despite the age difference), but now her heart's torn - the overwhelming feelings for Flynn has totally confused her and made her look at the relationship again.... which was first stemmed from her love of a Rock Legend when she was just 15. Whereas, when she's with Flynn it feels like it's truly the real deal - but she's been with Dylan for a year and many careers are riding on her to not rock the boat (including Flynn's). So, even though Flynn has been patient and given her time then tried ultimatums, Lucky doesn't know what's best for everybody. However, in the end it's jealous Dylan who takes charge and splits the lovers up.... and then got some very sensational pictures about himself and Lucky splashed all over the media - which nearly destroyed a heartbroken Flynn.
I really enjoyed this riveting listen and I thought I liked Alpha bad boys.... until Flynn came along who was (hold on coz I'm about to gush here) kind, thoughtful, patient, sexy,
sweet, understanding, hot, talented, sexy, handsome, tattooed, loyal, sexy, loving and a very very good Uncle too. Lucky did annoy me the way she strung Flynn on and lied to Dylan, who I admit was a scumbag, but it WAS his show. There were very tender intimate moments and sexy times too but the greatest strength in this book was the undeniable passion and chemistry between Flynn and Lucky which came out loud and clear all through the listen. Dual POV's, standalone and good narration.
Worth a credit? Vi Keeland wrote a wonderful story that was all-consuming and enjoyable about a torturous heartbreaking forbidden love that Fate had a hand in turning it into a sweet HEA.... and Destiny weaved it's magic for the beautiful Epilogue.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I was so excited that Flynn was getting his own story when this came out. I really enjoyed the first in the series. However, I may be in the minority here; but I could not feel the "angst" that Luci (Lucky) had in fighting her attraction/feelings for Flynn when she was intimately involved with Dillon. Keeland tried very hard (successfully) for me not to like Dillon, but I am a firm believer that if you are "with" someone you don't stray. EVER. You woman up---break it off and explore. This didn't happen in this story line. The both cheated. Lucky was ambivalent in how to handle things... blah, blah. Sebastian York gave a stellar narration/performance as did Ms Glenmore. I would not use a credit... perhaps a sale.
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I really enjoyed this story. The relationship of the people in this world of music was exciting. You could almost guess who the real rock stars would have been, if the story had been real. For instance, I know exactly who I would pick for Dylan Ryder and who I would choose for Flynn Beckham. Not sure who I see for Lucky. But you can be sure she will be as hot as the guys. Loved this book. It definitely took me away from reality. Nice escape. The narrators are excellent. They definitely brought out the sexiness in these characters. Gonna continue listening to Vi's books. Great writer.
I may be addicted to audiobooks. I love my husband and my kids but I get a chance to escape with the books and be someone else for a while
A can't miss!!! one of the best I've listened to in ages!!! Narration was stupendous...
"I can’t wait till the day I get to wake up next to you and kiss the hell out of you in public," is skeevy, not romantic! Ew. She's sleeping next to a guy she's been seriously dating for a year, and then jumping another guy behind his back and outside his bedroom door every chance she gets. Flynn gets her off while in earshot of the sleeping guy, hand over her mouth so he doesn't hear! I say again: Ew. Infidelity isn't sexy. All of the sex scenes were cringeworthy because guilt and shame. Lucky is an unlikable person who needed to have a wake-up call and start fixing her anxiety disorder, and learn to talk to someone about how she really feels, not just hop beds to self-medicate.
I can't wait for the sequel where Lucky gets bored with Flynn and is too chicken to give him a hint, so she just pretends until she finds someone who is more exciting. I wanted to shout at Flynn: "If she'll do it WITH you, buddy, she'll do it TO you. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday when the shine wears off."
really loved the characters. I struggled with the cheating part. especially when Dillon was a DB and has always been cheating, but I felt like that didn't come out soon enough. I kept waiting for her to catch him doing something. especially when she kept putting him off. he would have totally been hooking up with a groupie if he wasn't getting anything from Lucky.
I enjoy Audibles with a male and female voice so much better!! thank you
A band book with some emotional depth.
a great mix of characters and honestly I'll tell you I fell hard and deep for a guy who has it all and bends over backwards for his little niece
how many men would the Frozen lyrics and sing it for them. We've seen the good and the bad side of traveling with a beer in it Superior I love everything about it and I love the narrator's I can just about ready to listen to anything Sebastian York please. great book although I did read this out of order so now I have to go back and go to the first book. But once again it's not a hardship since once again Sebastian York is leaving. The author did a wonderful job in pulling you into the story and I look forward to reading much more by her.
Lucky was born with music in her blood. She fell in love with one rock star, Dillon, when she was a teenager. They started their relationship when she got older and Lucky is starting to feel the 10 years between them . But she tries to stay loyal. Flynn has overdone his vocal cords singing to much on a previous tour. The record label has assigned him a vocal coach, Lucky, and sends him to fill in a spot in Dillon's band. Lucky truly finds herself confused, awakened, and truly stuck between two Rock Stars. Her choice is not an easy one to make. Having the two narrator's made a real difference in how the book is perceived. Definitely worth the purchase!
I really enjoyed this audiobook very much. The love triangle between a talented woman, who is stage shy with two rock stars who both want her for themselves, was well written. Add to that great narration by Sebastian York and Molly Glenmore and it is a book worth listening to.
"Love Flynn Beckham and love Sebastian York. Win win"
Wow. I'm really loving this series, I sure hope there is more to come. This story follows Lucky, who is dating the guy of her dreams, but ends up falling for someone else. As much as I loved the book I was a little uncomfortable with Lucky going behind Dylan's back. I initially felt a little sorry for Dylan, he seemed to be trying so hard to have Lucky be a part of his life. He did however turn out to be a douche, I'm not sure he deserved to be treated so badly though. Lucky wound me up due to her lack of consideration for both men. I loved Flynn so much, much more in Beat than Throb, and loved that he got his own story and we could see what a genuinely nice guy he actually is. Another well written, light, easy read.
"Loved this fabulous story"
I really loved the characters, story and personality of this audio book!! Both narrators were matched to the characters well and gave great performances, in fact when does Sebastian York not give a fabulous performance he's a star !!
