Publisher's Summary

Ryder Kyle is a spoiled, self-righteous jerk. 

He doesn’t understand suffering. Entitled guy like him wouldn’t recognize desperation if it smacked him in his perfect face. I don’t need him, but I do need a ride west. I won’t let the guy who reminds me of the mess I left behind interfere with my plan to get to Los Angeles. 

This woman is nuts! 

People don’t sneak on a tour bus looking for shelter. That’s what crazy fangirls do, but she's far from a fan. She says she’s homeless and asks for help by throwing insults. Her words are like a viper strike and she’s made me her target. We’re dumping her at the next stop. 

Skipped a Beat is an enemies-to-lovers rock star romance that proves one seemingly insignificant choice can change the path of an entire life.

I COULDN’T LOVE IT MORE

This was a very enjoyable and entertaining friends-to-lovers rockstar romance that starts off with fiery showdowns and antagonistic run-ins between Ryder, the drool-worthy Drummer for Jesse’s Band - and homeless desperate Jade who seeks refuge by sneaking onto an unlocked Bus.. without realizing it’s actually a Tour Bus!. Everyone is easy about their new smart-mouthed stowaway.. well, everyone except Ryder whose accusations, suspicions and temper runs high towards this wounded bad-tempered woman who is just too beautiful, too tempting and definitely off-limits. Because loyal Ryder is in a long-distance relationship.. however, it’s a rocky relationship with a user girlfriend.. and the more time he spends with Jade the rockier his relationship gets. And, as Jade and Ryder’s lust-driven clashes heat up, sparks fuel a sexual hunger that leaves Ryder with only one choice. There’s secrets on both sides in this slow-burn.. but it’s Jade’s secrets that could destroy everything. Ryder was a swoony sweetheart, he wasn’t a cheater, he had an alpha side but wasn’t a bad-boy and he definitely wasn’t going to let Jade go once he’d claimed her.. but Jade’s backstory wouldn’t be the only roadblock standing in the way of their HEA.

Worth a credit? Yes, there’s a stormy start with seismic chemistry as instant attraction flares into lust. There’s snarky banter and good relationship growth as Ryder and Jade really get to know each other, have passion-filled days and grow close. There’s emotional struggles when Jade’s past (and her future) is revealed.. and a confrontation turns heartache into a heartwarming HEA. A couple of ‘heavier’ issues were weaved into the plot.. as well as jealousy, possessiveness, angst, drama, colorful flawed secondary characters and you can really feel the friendship between all the bandmates with playful bickering, bitchin and great banter. Excellent dual PoV narration by Teddy and Callie brought the excitement, anticipation and delicious feels to life.

Mostly good

I enjoyed this, but there were a few niggles which kept the rating down. Enough good stuff to bump it up from 3 stars though.
