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.

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.

I'm not typically a fan of love triangles. So I was a little apprehensive about how the Dylan-Lucky-Flynn relationship would work out. But Dylan was your classic rock star stereotype and came off as an arrogant prick. I quickly got over my sadness for him being an unwilling participant of the triangle. 

Flynn is such a sweet guy. I loved him right from the beginning. The care and respect that he had for everyone around him caused a case of instant love for me. All of the interactions between him and his family really dug in deep with how genuine he is. It's no wonder that while Lucky is with Dylan she starts to have feelings for Flynn. 

Lucky grew quite a bit into herself as a character. I loved her from the beginning too and was rooting for her the whole time to follow her heart. I also waited for her to overcome her fears. She accomplished so much on a personal level with the help of Flynn my heart hurt a little for her. 

While reading I had times where I would laugh with the characters and times when I wanted to cry for and with them. Vi Keeland did an excellent job writing this and it's one love triangle I'll be recommending to others. 

4 stars!!
