Holy hell, I'd forgotten how seriously HOT this series is.M/F/M...M/M/F....definitely my thing.I enjoyed it even more the second time.

I read this about a year ago and loved it and I enjoyed it even more this time.
This book concentrates on the relationship between Jinx and Toombs but Rax plays an important part....

**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

Great Rock Star Romance!

Drummer Jinx Hardwick has been in love with her band mate, Toombs Badcock for months and for a while he seemed to be drawn to her. Until one night she caught him in a compromising situation with another male band mate Rax, and she realized that her chances with Toombs were very slim indeed.

However, one night they invited her to join them and she realized that in order to have a chance with Toombs she would have to do so via Rax. The story is complex because she finds out

“Anybody can have sex. It’s a primitive bodily function. Hey, cock, meet pussy. Insert, agitate, release. Love is completely different, much more complicated animal. Love is like music. You have to work at it. Love is ugly and dirty and painful sometimes. But it can also be pretty fucking awesome once you figure out how to play the right notes to the right rhythm.”

I liked this one, did not love it like I did Strings but still glad I read it. Kendall Grey 'rocks out' and 'beats' some incredibly creative smutty sex scenes. I love her writing style.

I am satisfied with the way this one ended, but I do believe book three is going to be more of what I am looking for.

Oh... thanks for the vegetable visual of Toombs...

Not any better the second time around...unintentional reread :/
It said ménage.
It said sexy as fuck.
It said light and funny.

Well...IT lied.

The 3 way...forced and unhappy.
The sexy...not visible anywhere.
The L and F...dumb and dumber.

This really was TERRIBLE.

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

I enjoyed this as much as Strings but in a different way.
This is Jinx and Toombs story...
Jinx has a huge crush on Toombs but to get to him she will need to go through Rax first.
Rax and Toombs have a special relationship. Jinx is about to find out how special..

Where Strings was rauncher, smuttier and lol funny, Beats had more of a story.. It still has the one liners but this time it pulls at the heart strings every now and again.

Review for Beats by Kendall Grey
ARC provided by author for honest review.

Kendall Fuckin’ Grey. If you’ve heard her name you think one of two things “I love that chic” or “She rocks so fuckin’ hard” both are true statements… Kendall is one of the kindest and “real” people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. Her genuine love for her readers, bloggers, and fellow authors is a testament to what the Indie community is all about. I am honored to know her and to have had the opportunity to rea

OMG Holy Motherfucking Shit I fucking loved it Stars :)

I adore Kendall Grey, I just love her wicked sense of humor, her compassion, her passion for her readers, and just because she is one kick ass person. I fucking loved Strings, but fucking consumed me! It was the perfect blend of romance, hot steamy sex scenes, and crude humor.

Toombs...sigh...Toombs is fucking mine! Don't anybody even try to mess with my man! You can just call me Jinx from now on!

I wish I could say I loved this as much as Strings but it just wasn't meant to be, I'm afraid. I can't put my finger on what it was that didn't work this time around but so often whilst reading I felt myself either disgusted, bored or just plain confused.

I think my biggest issue was actually with Jinx, which is so bizarre as I loved her in Strings. She was one of the characters I really wanted to read about so I was pleased when I knew this book was hers.. Only, once I started reading this I fel

4.5 to 5 stars. I have to be honest with you. When I read Strings (Hard Rock Harlots, #1) by Kendall Grey by Kendall Grey, I was NOT prepared. Prepared for what you ask???? How about the raunchiest, most gag-worthy rock-in-roll romance I have ever had the privilege of reading. I swear to you that I read Strings with my mouth hanging open in shock. There were things that Letty and Shades did that I………..I…..I don’t even know……I….*gag*....just…eeewwwwww.

This book was, as one of the members of the band would put it- Totally Rad...

If you are in the mood for something shocking, highly sexually charged and fun,Beats is the book for you.

I found that I enjoyed this second book way more than the first one, as much fun as Letty and Shades were, I just loved Jinx and Toombs story, their connection was more personal and super intense. Jinx is the shy girl in the band, she sees herself as a chameleon but in all honesty she is just tryin

Beats is good, off the charts sexy and I can't begin to fathom how Kendall Grey walks around with that crap in her head. These sex scenes were CRAY-Z, and I loved every filthy dirty line!! The only down side was I think I missed Letty, her smart-ass mouth and quick comebacks. Jinx was a kitten compared to Letty, although I still enjoyed her story.

Jinx is a good Catholic girl on the outside and a bit of a sexual wildcat on the inside. She keeps that sexual prowess hidden well until Letty steps in

I just finished proofing the audiobook of BEATS, narrated by Lessa Lamb.

It. Is. Awesome.

Lessa is a talented voice actress who brings a new dimension to the series with her spot-on portrayals of Jinx, Toombs, Rax, and the rest of the Killer Buzz Float crew.

BEATS is a very different book from STRINGS. Lessa totally nailed Letty's voice, style, and attitude in the first book (if you haven't listened to STRINGS, go download the sample NOW. You won't regret it!), but I worried about whether she'd be

I was a little nervous diving into this. Strings just about gave little ole me a heart attack. I still liked it but I wasn't sure that I could handle a whole other book full of new terms for my lady bits. That, however, did NOT stop me from picking up this book the minute I found out it was LIVE. I knew I would read this but it surprised me just how badly I wanted to read it until it became available. I felt a little dirty reading the first book. Kendall even tweeted that she would hold my hand ...more

Last time I read Beats by Kendall Grey, I rated it a three star rating.
This time around I found I preferred Jinx and Toombs story a bit more than I did Letty and Shade's story!!

In My Own Words:

All It took was one amateur lap dance for Jinx to fall hopelessly in love with Toombs.
But a relationship with Toombs isn't in the cards and won't end with a happily ever after.
You see, Jinx is a girl brought up by the bible, and being the drummer in a band, she's always felt the demon lurking beneath th

2.5 Extremely Disappointing Stars

With the controversy and drama addressed and put aside, Beats was still a colossal disappointment. I was so intrigued by Jinx and Toombs in Strings that I immediately decided to read the next book in the series when I found out it was theirs. Unfortunately what could have been an intensely passionate and beautiful love story was ruined by a love triangle that was totally out of character for Jinx. I had absolutely no clue who this girl was; she was all over
Janna ♥ I'm A Sweet And Sassy Book Whore ♥
This is one screwed up sex triangle (yes I said sex triangle if you want to know why I say that read the book!) that makes you want to punch someone one minute and grab your vibrator the next. I loved the connection between Jinx and Toombs. All Jinx wanted was to be with Toombs, Toombs wanted to be with Jinx too but it couldn’t be that simple. Jinx had to go through Rax get to Toombs.

Jinx doubted her talent. She had a lot on her plate that she didn’t share with anyone. She was trying to support

Okay, the sex scenes are a little hard core for me, but I knew that going in. Nothing is off limits and nothing is taboo. Sometimes you just have to go there. I loved Beats, maybe even more than the first. I love Letty, don't get me wrong but she's balls to the wall all of the time. Jinx has a totally different vibe and it counterbalanced the sex scenes for me, gave me a break if you know what I mean. Funny one liners, hot sex, sweet love story, rock and roll...what's not to like? ...more

I really liked Strings and was looking forward to this...was excited about "getting to know" Jinx. My mistake. Jinx ended up coming across as boring to me...for the most part, anyway. She had glimpses of fun, rockstar, sexiness but only after she'd internally whined for so long that I was ready to tell her that she should, indeed, go home.

The whole Jinx/Toombs/Rax thing...? Ugh. I felt like there was this constant, underlying, likeness to Cunning's Reagan/Trey/Ethan from Double Time...with hints
