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.
Lucky is the daughter of music royalty. Her mom is still an icon in the industry; her dad had a heart attack and died while Lucky was making her own stage debut. Since, then, Lucky has been unable to sing in front of anyone. Lucky’s dad left her his bar that she as run since his passing but wanting to break out of her own stage fright, Lucky has taken a job at a studio giving voice lessons. One of Lucky’s last night’s tending bar, a handsome man comes in and flirts with her. This sex-on-a stick man also gets up and sings Karaoke. Nothing goes beyond this night as Lucky is currently dating the lead singer of one the hottest rock bands in the nation Dylan Ryder; she even used to have his poster in her bedroom when she was a teenager. Lucky soon finds out that the hot-Karaoke guy is the lead singer Flynn Beckham (that alone is a hot name), of the band In Like Flynn which will be touring with her boyfriend’s band to fill in for one of the other band members. Flynn is head-over-heels in love with Lucky but takes what she is willing to give him-friendship. Lucky soon finds herself in a tough situation; choosing her best-friend Flynn or her boyfriend of 2 years. Is Flynn willing to give-up his rising rock star status? I loved this book. I finished it in one session because I just couldn’t put it down and go to bed! There was just the right amount of sexual chemistry and banter between Lucky and Flynn to keep things interesting and hot. Flynn and Lucky were able to develop into friends before becoming lovers. And lets, face it, Dylan was a cheating asshole. I liked that there was an actual true-to-life situation that Lucky was faced with as well as choosing between Flynn and Dylan. She really had some tough decisions to make. This was the first book that I have read by Vi Keeland, and as I said previously, it was good. She made Flynn Beckham absolutely impossible to resist too.
***Apparently, Flynn had an appearance in Keeland’s previous book Throb
