Publisher's Summary

The one she really wants is out of reach.

The one he really needs is already taken.

Dizzy Lowell, rhythm man for the rising rock band Tempest, is a wizard on the guitar and a wonder with women. But the hookup specialist hides his emotional scars beneath his suave exterior. He never lets anyone truly touch him.

April Reynolds, the confident bartender of the Diamond Mine, knows her way around a cocktail, but Dizzy has her all mixed up. She knows what's safe. She's tired of settling, though. It would be so easy to fall under his spell.

Except for that ring around her finger.

Two searching souls separated by a thin metal band.

Some dreams are dangerous.

Some secrets shouldn't be shared.

Sometimes what we wish for most can never be.

    Story
    "Rollercoaster Of A Read."
    Where does Relentless Rhythm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my absolute favorite so far! My emotions were all over the place with this one. Listening to the past and what occurred was heart stopping to me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I gotta say, Diz widled his way into my heart. In spite of all the crap the universe put him through, he became strong enough to drag himself out and up.


    Have you listened to any of Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As always they are remarkably talented.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The heartbreak for April's situation and what she had been through as well as the heartbreaking revelations from Diz about his childhood.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm ecstatic that War is friends again with the band. Some serious healing was happening there.

    "Best in the Series!!!"

    Loved the story of April and Dizzy. Betrayal, friendship, family, and love. There are some dark moments in the story ... but in the end the HEA comes together! I enjoyed the listen. Enjoyed the relationship. I wouldn't change a thing!

    Story
    "I don't want it to be over"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Relentless Rhythm to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a captivating story with strong characters, danger, intrigue, sex, and love.


    What about Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s performance did you like?

    The various characters that they gave voice to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had to put off everything until I finished the book, I had to see what happened.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked to have seen the Familia have taken them in and shown that 'gangs' can be strong family units also, not all bad.

    Story
    "Yowza"

    This book is about forbidden love. Dizzy falls for a married woman. Some people may think the husband’s flaws and the ending are a little too convenient, but I love these characters and Mankin’s writing so much that I’m okay with that in order to get to the HEA. In fact, those flaws are what added the tension and suspense to this story.

    This is another great book that has characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Dizzy’s past is even darker than I suspected and should carry a trigger warning. The secondary characters are loveable as usual.

    Throughout the series Mankin uses original poetry as lyrics to the band’s songs. In the audiobooks, there is a musical background that plays behind the reading of each poem. It adds to the story and the rock atmosphere.

    Each book in this series is a stand alone and stars a different couple. However, there is an over-reaching arc about the band’s future that is left hanging at the end of this book. I’m hoping that Mankin will follow up soon with the promised books about the final two band members, the rhythm section. And that she'll quickly produce the matching audiobooks. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross are awesome narrators. They become the characters and act out the stories, rather than simply reading the book aloud.

    This book was another 5-star audiobook for me.

    Story
    "Hot and Steamy Romance!!!!"
    What other book might you compare Relentless Rhythm to and why?

    Any of the other books in the Tempest series. They are all hot, steamy, and not only deal with everyday problems, but show how true love can conquer all.


    What does Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kai and Wen are the best voice-overs I have listened to by far. They speak clearly and with passion. They are true storytellers. The chemistry they share when narrating is something I would never experience reading the book myself. They bring the book to another level of enjoyment.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I absolutely did. In fact, I listened to all four books in the series that are available now in four days.


    Any additional comments?

    Michelle Mankin has become one of my favorite authors in just a small amount of time. Her edgy subject matter and lyrical writing is amazing. And having Kai Kennicot and Wen Ross narrating this wonderful series is a match made in heaven. I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in the series and anything else these three have in store.

    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

    Story
    "THE MESSAGE..HOLD ON,TAKE THE RISK & DARE TO DREAM"

    Yes, this a tragic and difficult listen with a doomed relationship between two broken people - pierced and tattooed man-slut Dizzy and married bartender April who crave to be together but April's very physical and abusive mysterious cheating husband makes it impossible for her to dream of a HEA. But underneath Dizzy's brash exterior is a heart craving love and a tender soul reaching for the impossible.... salvation and underneath April's mask of indifference is a profound yearning for hope and, as the sparks fly, together they might just get their hearts desire.

    There's also the tragedy of April's Step-Father who had been in a car accident which left him with a traumatic brain injury.... and worse was to happen. Miscarriage and child abuse is also somewhere in the mix. So this is very much a bitter-sweet listen with plenty of drama, life threatening situations, heartache, sex, a stolen romance with broken hearts, broken friendships and broken dreams along the way. But there's also passion, tenderness and protective arms with sweet words of love. Dual POV's and, as always with this series, I love how the dual narration allows the female/male to say their own parts so neither one has to try to do the opposite sexes voice which makes it a smoother listen.

    Worth a credit? I love all of the tortured members of the Tempest Band and their stories so, for me, it's a no brainer YES because MM has a great writing style that brings her characters to life so you can't help but get caught up in the outcome of their love stories and root for the ever elusive HEA ending. Each one could be a stand-alone listen.
