Book 2 in the Hard Rock Harlots Series

WARNING: BEATS is specially formulated for horn dogs, porn oglers, smut peddlers, BDSM junkies, M/M and M/M/F addicts, DP dabblers, and lovers of A2M backdoor sexy times. If you don’t fall into these categories, can’t stomach hot man-on-man action, or if you have no idea what the above acronyms mean, please back away from BEATS now. This isn’t the book you’re looking for. Failure to heed this warning could inadvertently throw unauthorized users into a persistent vegetative state, or at the very least, require administration of a defibrillator to the chest and/or groin area. Nobody wants that.

For months, shy drummer Jinx Hardwick has been silently crushing on her tall, dark, and scary bandmate, Toombs Badcock. Drawn to his frightening ink and scars, she yearns to uncover the shadowy secrets lurking behind his silver eyes, but Jinx is too intimidated to even look at him, let alone talk to him. When she stumbles upon Toombs and their manipulative lead guitarist Rax in a compromising position, Jinx realizes her chances of winning Toombs’s heart aren’t just a long shot—they’re nonexistent. To make matters worse, Jinx’s family needs her at home. She’s about to back away from it all—Toombs, the band, her dreams of fame and fortune—when Rax makes her an offer she can’t refuse: a no-holds-barred night alone with Toombs. There’s one small catch. She has to go through Rax to get it.

Review: Kirsty Lander

I wish I could say I loved this as much as Strings but it just wasn't meant to be, I'm afraid. I can't put my finger on what it was that didn't work this time around but so often whilst reading I felt myself either disgusted, bored or just plain confused.

I think my biggest issue was actually with Jinx, which is so bizarre as I loved her in Strings. She was one of the characters I really wanted to read about so I was pleased when I knew this book was hers.. Only, once I started reading this I felt like I didn't know her at all. Some of the things she does throughout this book shocked the hell out of me. It seemed so unlike the character we had previously met.

I didn't buy in to the Rax-Toombs-Jinx love story at all. I couldn't wrap my head around Jinx putting herself out there like she did and letting both Toombs and Rax treat her like absolute dirt. They used her and had her do and watch some awful crap. I'm sure I was supposed to find it hot and sexy but nah, not for me. 

Aside from the endless sex scenes I really can't say that there was even much of a story, hence me being bored. All in all I was just pretty disappointed which is a shame when I loved Strings so much.
