Blurb
Dimpled smile of a boy
Hard body of a man
Sings like an angel
Fucks like the devil
I was stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place.
At fifteen, his poster hung on my bedroom wall.  At twenty-five 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.

Excerpt #1 (New for Tour)


Getting through Flynn singing is incredibly hard.  The way his throat moves, the way his mouth caresses each syllable of the low, raspy sound that falls from his lips.  I should be watching his posture, his breathing, the way his larynx forces out the words—but instead I’m focused on the beauty of his mouth and how the sound of his voice glides over my body, making it feel both warm and tingly at the same time.  I’m lost when the song finishes, yet I haven’t really observed him yet.
“So.  Give it to me straight.  What am I doing wrong?”
Ummm…absolutely nothing from what I can see.  Everything was perfect.  Don’t change a thing.  Shit.  “Could you do it again?  Maybe a different song, one you haven’t sung in a while.  So the sounds are less familiar to your body.  Sometimes that can give me a different view.”  At least I make it sound like a real thing when the words come out.
He sings again, and this time I force myself to observe.  “Hmm…your posture is great.  Most people have a tendency to favor one side of their neck, which makes them tilt a bit when they speak, and it becomes magnified when they sing, which puts strain on the muscles around the vocal cords.  Your alignment is perfect.”
“Thank you, it goes with the rest of my perfectness,” he says with a teasing arrogance that, from the little I know about him, I know isn’t real.
“You didn’t let me finish.”
“You can’t now tell me I’m not perfect.  I was already basking in the glow.”
“Actually, it was perfect…but almost a little too perfect.  Which makes me think you don’t usually stand this way when you sing.”
“It isn’t the way I normally sing.  On stage, I usually have a guitar over my shoulder.  Even if I’m not playing it, it’s there.”
“Well, I need to see you holding your instrument to assess you fully, then.”
Flynn’s eyebrows quirk up and the dirty grin on his face is unmistakable.
“The guitar.  I’d need to see you holding the guitar.
“That’s a shame.”  He shrugs, the playful smile still on his face.  “But okay.  It’s your call.  Whatever instrument you want to see me hold is fine with me.”
“How big of you.”
“So now we’re talking about the other instrument again?”
I roll my eyes, although this conversation is having more of an effect on me than I let on.

My Review 

Can you imagine dating the heartthrob who hung on your bedroom wall as a teenager? I am not even sure who mine would be probably Jonathan Taylor Thomas or someone from the New Kids on the Block. Regardless, Lucky is living that life. When you first meet Lucky it seems her entire life is put together. She is dating Dylan Ryder, famous rockstar, owns her own bar and is in her own right a success. Her life is completely on track until Flynn Beckham makes her question everything. 

A man I’ve wanted since I was fifteen. I’m living every girl’s fantasy. Only, I’m not a girl anymore.


Flynn Beckham is a rising star, crazy talented and absolutely beautiful. He makes Lucky question everything and when he joins Dylan on tour it gets even harder for Lucky to fight her feelings. 

I wasn’t expecting a love triangle, but that is exactly what we got. Regardless, it wasn’t hard for me to chose sides. I loved Flynn. He is such a great guy and I loved seeing him interact with his family, he was just a decent guy. 

But living life without temptations is like having a heart that doesn’t beat. And I’m a musician. I need a good strong beat.


This story has some intense heat and passion. I enjoyed all the music lessons and personal growth throughout the story. My only complaint is I felt the inner thoughts were the same for both characters, they didn’t feel unique. I do recommend this story if you are a fan of love triangles or musical romances.
