The guilt at destroying her was nothing to his need to have her. She was an obsession. An addiction.

A musical collaboration that wins a grammy serves for a night of celebration. The pull between Reckless Beat's front man, Mason Lynch and Sidney Higgins has always been there. One night of celebration and alcohol leads to a sizzling threesome between Signey, Mason, and Mason's best friend and Reckless Beat's drummer, Sean Taiden. But then a video recorded on Mason's phone meant to
Almost made it to 5stars but............3.5*

This went back a bit in time to the threesome between Mason, Sid and Sean. While I'm generally not a fan of threesome's unless they end in a triad,the saddest part of this one was that both Mason and Sid already were into each other. Had he said something then it wouldn't have happened but alas a good time was had by all and the sex tape was eventually released presumably by Mason.

Throughout these books Mason has been the arrogant,over confident

I'm a huge fan of the Reckless Beat series by Eden Summers. The wait for Undesired Lust, the 3rd book in this awesome series, was much anticipated. The problem that often arises in this situation is that when the book is finally released it doesn't live up to the build-up you've created in your head. That is so not the case with this book. Undesired Lust was well worth the wait and then some.

In the previous books of this series we got hints about Mason and

He didn't want to f*** their relationship up. He just wanted to f*** her something crazy.

One night of slightly drunken celebration, passion, and fantasies with three friends led to a huge mistake and the repercussions ended their collaboration. The fall-out affected their friendships, careers, and took away Mason's songwriting muse.

Two years later, the only way to solve their lyrical and career problems seem to be to collaborate again. But that is challenging when there is no trust and

After two long years, the truth about the sex tape scandal that ruined so much for Sidney, Mason and Sean is about to finally come out. As the story opens, we are treated to an inside look at the night the video was made and find out exactly how Mason felt about Sidney- and her feelings for him. But before the actual stuff hits the fan so to speak, we jump ahead to the present day just 2 weeks after the end of Reckless Weekend.

ARC received for an honest review

I was over the moon to receive an advanced copy of Undesired Lust. I love my rock stars, and the boys of Reckless Beat are no exception.

During the last full length novel and the Vegas novella, it was alluded to that Mason and Sidney's friendship went south fast after an incident, but we never really knew the details.

I loved this book! I discovered this author a few months ago when I was given the opportunity to read book one in this series and I swear that each book gets better and better! This book was amazing. I loved Walsh because honestly I am sucker for a tortured hero but wow! Mason rocked me to my core. He and Sean were the most mysterious as we know them but not well. And let me tell you... all the assumptions I made about Mason were totally wrong.

Undesired Lust, the third full instalment in the Reckless Beat series, is my favourite so far! Mason Lynch, the lead singer of the band has, in the previous books, been amusing, infuriating and at time a full on arsehole. But he comes into his own in Undesired Lust, showing a depth of character I knew he’d kept hidden. I love a second chance romance, and this one is full of powerful emotion, secrets and healing. Sidney Higgins has been through hell and back, and she thinks it’s because of Mason, ...more

~~~~~~~~~~Amanda's Review~~~~~~~~~~

The story of Sidney and Mason is breathtaking and entertaining. It will grab your attention right at the beginning and hold it until the very end. The details were written so well that I had no trouble picturing the each character or scene. Unlike the others in the series, this book will keep you interested from the suspense. It played out like a great movie through my head and didn't leave me with wondering for more. I do strongly suggest to
For me, this one wasn't as good as the previous books in the series. Mason was a complete jerk! All his desires did was hurt others, even when he said that he was trying to help them. Sidney also didn't mention any of her troubles to anyone save for the person who wound up being the center of the book's twist. This book took a bit of a darker turn, with a stalker situation happening, but Mason's actions throughout the entire thing always came off as self-serving. While this is a good installment ...more

Well I think this is my favorite book from the Reckless Beat series so far!

I found myself often thinking 'how much can one couple take' often throughout this book. Mason and Sidney were torn apart once before over a huge miscommunication. Or maybe a lack of communication is more accurate. Years later they are reunited and Mason is the only one who is happy about it.
See, Mason is very self Centre. In his life everything revolves around him.. or so it appears. The reality couldn't be further from
UNDESIRED LUST is a Rock Star Romance that will have your heart racing and your blood pumping. There is just something about an arrogant, complicated, possessive, sexy rock star that just makes me weak in the knees. Mason Lynch has been my favorite Reckless Beat band member since the beginning of the series. I instantly fell in love with his passion for the band and for music. I fell in love with his arrogance and his smart mouth. I fell in love with his ability to make me laugh even in the ...more

I swear that the Reckless Beat series keeps getting better and better! I thought I loved Blake, but now Mason is my favourite for sure! Undesired Lust was full of sexual tension and suspense right from the beginning, and I loved watching every minute of Mason and Sidney together.

I love how Eden hooked me to this book right from the first few chapters that were from the past. Those chapters were sizzling and I could see that the attraction between Mason and

Sidney Higgins thought she was living the dream. Her career was flying a contract to record her own music, a Grammy and one of the best nights of her life with a man she thought was one of the best, ever. Then the video came out and EVERYTHING changed. Her life that once was, was no longer. She couldn’t go out, was losing work, losing sleep, about the only good thing was that she was losing weight and even that wasn’t really good. Could she ever get “good” again?

Mason Lynch can be a real A-hole. He’s got arrogance in spades and the good looks and success to back it up. He’s also in love with Sidney Higgins, but past events have torn them apart. Not that he’s admitted to having such strong feelings. That would require him to put his pride aside and own up to some things. Not something that anyone would expect from the lead of Reckless Beat. But even rock stars deserve a second chance at a happy ending.

If you've read the previous Reckless Beat books ( if you haven't you're completely missing out on hot hot HOT rock star yumminess ) you know Mason is hard to take serious, he's a bit of a loveable douche at times. But holy hell, I fell head over heels for him in this book! You see a vulnerable side that he keeps hidden, you see into his heart. And his heart wants Sidney back.

Threesome, Sex Tape, Betrayal, and Deception -- Eden Summers brings all these elements and more together for a platinum release. Best of all it is all unveiled in a realistic way.

With so many rock star books released I enjoy her ability to provide readers with unique storylines. With the history written for these characters a HEA seems impossible, but I knew this author would not neglect her readers.

I highly urge contemporary and erotic romance fans to read this book! It is a satisfying,

Eden Summers really knows how to pull the emotions out of you. Sid is asked to work with Mason again and she decides to do it. However since her and Mitch have a history they do not make it easy working together. He pushes and she pulls. I cant get enough of this series. Each book just gets better and better.

OMG I loved Mason and Sidney's story...I found myself lost in their relationship....This story drew me in and I was eagerly turning the pages as their story unfolded and though I couldn't wait to get to the end, I did not want the story to end at all! This was beautifully well written, a book with a fantastic blend of romance, suspense, drama and humor...Eden Summers has done it again, given readers a wonderful story!

OMG Ok I thought I had a fav in this series but Mason just blew it out of the water.

So much emotion and desire. I was on the edge of my seat reading this one.

In UL we see a soft and broken side to Mason the way it all played out was very emotional to read. It's one of those it can happen to anyone moments so be careful.

Eden has outdone herself with UL it is intense and unputdownable

I LOVE this series and can't wait for more!

Just when you think you have found the perfect Reckless Beat guy for you, BAM! Eden Summers comes along with another amazing book in her hot rocker series and blows your theory to smithereens! While Blake Kennedy is my main man, I have to say getting to know Mason as more than just the cocky rocker we have seen so far, has moved him right up there as my number one backup book boyfriend.

In Undesired Lust we finally get to see what actually happened the night that Mason, Sean and Sidney slept

"Her dreams of not only writing songs, but becoming a world-famous singer had vanished in the pleasure of an orgasm."

What I loved about this story was the relevance of it, especially in this day and age. There were enough references in book #2 (Ch. 30, 31, Epi) about the scandal involving Mason, Sean and Sidney, so naturally I'd been intrigued ever since. I don’t do angst, but there is no other author for whom I would willingly put myself through such passionate highs and emotional lows for,
