About this ebook

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, body modification connoisseurs, 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.

WARNING! If you are easily offended, grossed out, or have no idea what a strap-on is. This review is not for you. Please move on before your eyeballs start on fire. Kendall Grey, I want to shrink you down to a fun size little mini and carry you around in my pocket. Anyone who can come up with the fantastic-ness that is Strings and then follow it up with the awesomeness of Beats is seriously a genius. Now let me warn you, while I love, love, loved Strings do not start Beats thinking it’s going to be all strap-ons and squirting. Where Strings was sexy and funny, Beats is raw and intense. Just like Strings, Beats made me squirm, but for entirely different reasons. Yes, there were piercings, tattoos, man-on-man action, and unconventional use of drumsticks. But it was also so much more. The relationship between Toombs, Rax, and Jinx was fucked-up to the max. I changed my mind about who I wanted to end up together no more than five thousand times (okay, slight exaggeration, it was more like four thousand). I adored Jinx’s character. While Letty is what you see is what you get, Jinx is this complex person being pulled in different directions. I thought bringing her family into the stor

Wow this was DEEP. Jinx Hardwick is quite the complex woman. She not only is the drummer in a band of crazy sexed up mo-fo’s but she is also a catholic girl with a strong family bond. These two very distinct personalities are constantly at war in Jinx’s head. Jink’s has lost the music in her head. With the stress of her family’s financial state and her obsession with her band mate Toombs her playing is suffering. One of the things that keep her grounded is her younger brother who has autism. I loved that in the middle of the insanity that is Killer Buzz Float there are these touching moments that Jinx’s has with her brother over video chat. The one thing Jink’s wants above all else is Toombs Badcock. But to have Toombs she also has to take Rax, the nastiest craziest one in the band. She doesn’t understand the hold Rax has over Toombs but finally gives in to his terms to a three-way so she can finally have Toombs. But when things are revealed during said tryst the end result is changes for all three. By the end the dynamics of relationships and the band have changed. How this book ended has me very curious as to what’s next for band. Beats was so much more than just the crazy

Read this book to find out more about yourself and those you love. Seriously. I'm talking about the exploration of love and sex, pain and honesty, openness and secrets that you'll find in this book. Yes, it's fun and hot and dirty and sweet and romantic and rough and heartbreaking and beautiful. Yes, there is sex and alcohol and betrayal and lies and kink and fear and hurt and manipulation. All of those things make this a great book. Jinx wants Toombs. Rax wants Jinx and Toombs, but he isn't willing to share either of them with the other. Rax wants to be in charge. Always. Jinx just wants to get a little closer to the fire that is Toombs, even if it means she gets burned a little around the edges. Toombs wants to love Jinx and still find a way to get what he needs. He's not ashamed of who and what he is, but he's not sure she won't be. Can a little drummer girl find love and hope amid the music, the excess, and the crazy life and wild nights she finds herself living in? Of course she can! I love this book. I give it five additional stars for being so incendiary, sexy, hot & smoldering. Read this book. First, read Strings. After, get Nocturnes. Then get Love Notes.
