Publisher's Summary

A rock star. A stripper. Can a hookup lead to a happily ever after?

Juaquin Acenado.

A drummer. A rapper. A rock king.

My brother’s best friend.

Arrogant. Forbidden. Do-not-go-there-trouble.

The sexy Latino was too old for me when we first met and I was in high school. But he was my first love. I’ve never gotten over him.

Miriam Jackson.

Stripper. Exotic dancer. Her stage name is Queen.

My bandmate’s little sister.

Spicy and sweet. The spark that fires my inspiration. The rhythm to my beat.

She’s the one I imagine when I settle for the others. My ultimate fantasy. Only I can never have her.

Until I arrive in Vegas to record my solo rap album, visit a strip club, and there she is. Miriam was supposed to be in college, but she’s not. She is so not.

Sin City, a place where anything can happen, and I’m the only one in the band who knows her secret.

So why resist anymore?

Who could possibly stop me?

Sexy Latino

Latino Heat

Scandalous Beat by Michle Mankin is the final book in the Tempest Series. I have been waiting for this one!! My favourite Hispanic drummer King finally gets his story. King is all sexy Latino man who likes to be large and in charge and wants a Queen by his side. But not just any girl will do because he needs someone more spicy than sweet!
This couple has a past and gets a chance at a future, but nothing comes easy for either of them. The chemistry between them is muy calente!!- Hot! Hot!!
This book has all the best feels- so much love and desire. I felt very at home reading this story because it reminds me of my own Hispanic family and these characters felt like a real family to me.
Now I crave my Abuela's tamales and migas! 5 grande stars!

Finally!

It feels like I waited forever for the final audio installment to this series, but it was worth the wait, plus it gave me the excuse to re-listen to the entire series. King and Miriam are a great couple. She is just the challenge that King didn't know he needed. It was very suspenseful and made a great climax to the series. I love how everything was wrapped up neatly at the end for the whole series. I'm just heartbroken the ride is over!

Kennicott and Ross are unparalleled with their duet narration. They really capture each character and bring them to life. They make each book such an experience!

Sexy forbidden romance

Juaquin and Miriam’s story started a long time ago, but she is his band mates sister and therefore off limits. Miriam doesn’t have a great life and Juaquin being in it is not helping. As much as she wants to be with him she can’t do it. This is a great final book to a wonderful series I loved the whole series...thanks Michelle! Kai and Wen fabulous as always !

My Two Pennies

Kai and Wen never disappoint when it comes to an audiobook, these two narrators have me wanting to continue to listen and see where the strip goes. For this story in particular 3.7 for this particular story. I’ve read previous books in this standalone series and I felt I was checking out at times when it came to Juaquin and Miriam. They always say “Drummers bang harder” and that is undoubtedly true when it comes to the drummer of the band Tempest. The scenes with these two are hot and smoking without a doubt. I just felt that I was on a roller coaster ride at times with my attention span. Overall I’m happy I’ve completed the book and experienced the love, friendship and support that Miriam was able to receive.

A must read

I will say this about Michelle Mankin, she knows how to write a love story packed with action, twists and turns, slow burning romance, friendship, angst, and love that grips your heart. This story begins when Miriam is a teenager and Juaquin is a little too old to date his best friend's sister. But passion is ignited years later when his sees her stripping in a nightclub. Their journey is not an easy one but they have a true love for one another. They will do anything to protect each other. Their friends are there for constant love and support.

Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott once again are narrators that give so much realism and emotions to their characters. I could listen to them all day long. They capture the hearts and souls of these characters.

I received this Audible book in exchange for an honest review. I usually do not read rock star gendre books but Michelle Mankin has won me over. Her characters are real. They are friends and lovers that are full of love, passion, and true concern for each other. This is a must read book.

Great Story & Audible Listen🎧 King💘His Queen!

This is one great love story. Rock star romances are one of my favorites and Michelle Mankin sure knows how to write them and write them well. Her storylines and characters are interesting and well developed. Juaquin & Miriam had a great relationship from the start, there was great chemistry between them even in their younger days. But being his best friend and bandmate’s younger sister Miriam is off limits. The band makes it big and Miriam goes off to college, which does not work out too well, so she sets off to Las Vegas, becomes a dancer in a club with intentions of being an actress. She also also watches a daughter of a mob king. One night Juaquin catches her act at the club and that chemistry between them just explodes. After a little angst and denial they finally act on it, Miriam with the intention to get him out of her system, Juaquin has other intentions, he does not want to deny his feelings for her any more. The story really picks up with lots of drama, twists, action, some suspense and romance with lots of emotions. I love the band’s camaraderie, how they are a family and include their extended family. It was great how they came together at the end too. Michelle Mankin, thank you for this great story!!

I listened to the Audible edition, Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross are terrific narrators and voice performers. They bring the characters to life, give each their own voice, personality and a lot of heart. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for another great listen🎧
