Synopsis

He wants the world and the admiration of everyone in it. 

Sean Taiden, the inconspicuous drummer of Reckless Beat, is sick of living in the shadows of his bandmates’ success. He’ll do anything to gain the recognition he deserves. Even if it means dancing in a music video to the Reckless track that drives a knife into his broken heart whenever he hears it. The saving grace is the tempting choreographer who may be the one person able to distract him from the agony his life has become.

All she wants is the peace that comes with solitude.

Melody Jenkins knows all about fame. She knows enough to determine she doesn’t want a part of it anymore. After quitting her professional dance career, she set up a quiet studio and focused on starting a new beginning away from prying eyes. Until a sexy drummer strides into her life, making her crave something she can’t have while also pushing her to expose secrets she can’t bear to reveal.

Conflicting aspirations and one inextinguishable passion.

She needs to hide from the world she once owned. He wants to rise to the top, proving to himself and his friends that he’s always been the heartbeat of the band. Caught between what they need and what they want, Melody and Sean have to decide which is more important—their individual plans for the future or their feelings for one another.
 



Review:

Another hit in the Reckless Beat Series! This is book 4 in the series and to get the full enjoyment from these books, you should read them in order. The last book left me feeling for Sean who watched his best friend "get" the girl he also loved. So I was happy to see this was Sean's story. This story opens with Mason and Sid's engagement party and I suffered along with Sean.

If losing his chance with Sidney wasn't hard enough, now he had to grin and act like the caring best man while the two people he cherished most went through the highly publicized road to marriage - slowly killing him one mile at a time. 

Sean meets Melody, the woman who is choreographing their music video. We see early on that she has some dark secrets. Sean is looking for a distraction from all things Mason and Sidney and he takes a liking to Mel. They spend three weeks together learning the dance routine and during this time, Sean's distraction becomes much more and the two start to feel much more for each other. Sean also has some issues of his own, so somehow, I found these two perfect for each other.

There were times, however, when I wanted to reach through my kindle and wrap my hands around Mel's throat and squeeze! I loved her tough love sister Blair.

"I'm Sorry, Mel. I didn't mean to be so blunt. It's just hard to see you like this." Her sister walked forward and squeezed her shoulder. "I understand that you like him. And that he was the reason you came back into my life. But I also know you're stronger than this role you're playing--" "It not a role, Blair." "I think it is." Her sister shrugged. "You've always been shrouded in the diva lifestyle. Surrounded by people who only care about appearances and the perfect persona. Once you learn to understand that none of that matters to anyone else, you'll find life a lot easier." 

As in the other books, the band members are constantly giving each other crap, but are there in a blink of an eye when support is needed. 

And I had a love/hate relationship with Sasha! She is the dancer hired to perform with Sean.

"Sweetheart, after mixing up nymphomania with necrophilia, I don't think anything could make you sound smart." 

And there is a small cliffhanger with Ryan and Leah, the band's manager. I cannot wait to read the next Reckless Beat book! I highly recommend this steamy, sassy series. These characters will remain in your heart with you long after you finish!

Interview with Sean Taiden

What is your name?
Sean Taiden

How do you dress most of the time?
Casual. Jeans. Cargos. Anything comfortable and usually something to show off my guns in the warmer weather.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Not much.

Where do you live?
My penthouse apartment in Richmond, Virginia is my favorite place. It’s clean and stylish…because I pay people to make sure it stays that way.

What one word best describes you?
Shadow
What is your favorite memory from adolescence?
My first live gig. I was caught between pissing my pants and snorting vomit out of my nose. It was only at a local bar and I was underage.

What do you watch on the Television?
The music channels but I always switch off the gossip segments. They’re always full of shit.

What annoys you more than anything else?
Mason Lynch.

What's your favorite animal?
Probably a Koala. While we were touring Australia I got up close and personal with one. They are so cute and pretty much spend their entire life high on eucalyptus. Did you know they can give you chlamydia?... Ahh… that’s just a fun fact… Not something I learned from the up close and personal experience. Next question??

Do you have any pets?
Touring life doesn’t really allow for it. But I’ve always wanted a dog. A big one.

What do you find most relaxing?
A beer and a movie. Or a beer and… pretty much anything.

What was the wildest thing you've ever done, sexually?
There’s a sex tape roaming the internet at the moment. It may not be the wildest thing I’ve done but it sure was the stupidest.

Is there any sexual activity that you enjoy and/or practice regularly that can be considered non-standard?
I like a little pain with my pleasure. I wouldn’t say I’m heavily into any type of kink but I’m not against any either.
