Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Truely lovely story"
    What made the experience of listening to Beat the most enjoyable?

    Not at all what I was expecting and yet I found it relatable and the love triangle most people could relate to at some point in their lives. Great read!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beat?

    Dancing and holding each other before he joined the band.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I think it was was their time on stage when they first kissed who would not swoon to that.


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

    I had conflicting reactions to the love triangle and the additional cheater going on around the edges of this that the band mates talked about.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the book very relatable would of love to see on of the other main characters be lucky too! Perhaps his sister could have scored a hunkey billionaire and stick it to the professor and she could live the dream life!

    "Another Rockstar Romance"

    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 SAID "JUST 1 MORE CHAPTER"... OVER & 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.

    "GREAT Narration ----- story line left me cold!"

    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.

    "Sex in a Song Bird"

    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.

    Story
    "Lucky's a terrible human being."

    "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."

    "🎸 Lucky Is Lady With a Delicious Problem"


    🎀 Lucky has a secret, a rockstar boyfriend, a bar, she is a vocal coach and also has (she'll soon discover) a whole lot of problems. Lucky (she) is dating her rock starchildhood poster crush – rockstar Dylan Ryder, front man for the band Easy Ryder. She is content in the relationship.

    Lucky also is half owner of a popular New York nightclub/bar, famous for their karaoke shenanigans. One night as she is tending bar, Lucky serves Flynn – a man who is filling in for one of the Easy Ryder vocalists. Flynn is also hoping that his band will be chosen to open for Easy Ryder.

    Flynn has overused his vocal cords (can you see where this is going?) So Dylan kills 2 birds with one stone – he hires his girlfriend (Lucky) #1 to coach Flynn while they're on the road #2 Lucky is close by all the time.

    What is Lucky to do with this instant and overwhelming attraction to Flynn? What is Flynn to do with his overwhelming lust and infatuation for Lucky? What will the close quarters of a tour bus due to a tightknit group with 2 outsiders?

    This is an excellent book for readers/listeners who like a lot of spice without detailed graphic descriptions (there are a few – but far less than many books.) There is some strong language – appropriately placed – not a steady stream of it.

    I was pleasantly surprised with my first read/listen of Vi Keeland's books. I am really happy that I have several more of her books in my library and that there are more out there.

    Sebastian York's performance 5 stars. Molly Glenmore's performance 4 stars.
    Overall 4 stars
    story 4 stars

    "Love Flynn, Lucky was so ANNOYING!"

    This book should've been more about Flynn and less about Lucky. On and on about her past and dumb anxiety. Lucky was a coward throughout the entire book. Never saying exactly what she meant always saying "I'm sorry" instead of womaning-up. Carrying on with Dillion and Flynn and expecting Flynn to just stand around and wait for her to get it together. Urghhh. This is the type of pansy, gutless woman men should run from not fall in love with.

    Flynn knew what he wanted and went after her but not very alpha the way he let her play him. Like I said Flynn is a keeper but Lucky should go fly a kite.

    Sebastian was Sebastian which is always a good thing and Molly was good.

    "Five sweet stars..."

    I loved Flynn and Lucky's story! They were two of the sweetest characters I've come across in a long time - they were meant to be together. The supporting cast was great, too. Sebastian York and Molly Glenmore were fabulous with the narration. If you're looking for a sweet easy read Beat is definitely worth the credit.

    Overall, the story was very good and I really enjoyed the performance by the two narrators. I just wish the story didn't have cheaters and they had focused more on her fears to move the story along..

    "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.
