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.

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!

Awesome and wonderful

I love how this book tied so much together in this series. IT twas a real joy getting to listen to Kai and Wen act out Dizzy and April's story. The emotions and drama throughout this book made for a really incredible read. I love when authors can write a book that deals with so much everyday life and it doesn't come off as heavy, but it comes off as a must have more. With everything that was reviled and plotted out in this book I can't wait for the sparks and awesomeness to come in the rest of the series.

My Two Pennies

This story gets intense when we find out what's been happening with April & her husband, I never liked him from the start I might add. Dizzy is a rocker with such a caring heart and can't keep his thoughts to himself when it comes to April. I love seeing the kind of man Dizzy is and how he never backs down from a challenge. I just want to scream at April to stop fighting for somethings and fight like hell for others. Their story is one you'll never forget. I enjoyed Thor 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.

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.
