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.
**3.5 Beating Stars**
This is the story of Gianna 'Jinx' the drummer in Killer Buzz Float. Jinx is in love with Toombs, one of the guitarists and ex-drummer in Killer Dixon. She had a crush on him since forever, but she doesn't dare to make a move, because she knows that Toombs has something going on with the other guitarist and best friend of him, Rax and she doesn't want to get in between them, thinking that she also doesn't stand a chance.
Gianna has also problems back at home with her family and she doesn't know what to do to help them. Is she going to drop the band and the tour and get back home or is she going to work her ass of and try to find the lack of mojo that she desperately needs to continue being a part of the band?
Jinx is so obvious that Rax approaches her with an offer that could be profitable for all of them. She can't have a chance with Toombs without Rax being a part of it. A tempting offer, but Jinx has always been shy and quiet and her personality seems to come in conflict with her deepest desires.
"Our beats become one. Heart beats. Drum beats. Sex beats."
I enjoyed 'Beats' way more than I had enjoyed Strings. Jinx & Toombs stole my heart and they are definately my favorite members of the band. I loved the character development, her inner battles and the scenes were schorching!
If you need to read a steamy read with rock stars and you don't mind ménage scenes, give this book a chance!
