➦I'm just gonna make this a real short review. This is the second book in the Life on Stage series and it also has a love triangle in it. There's also cheating, just a warning. And despite all that the book still somehow worked for me. I was smitten by the hero, Flynn. :D

➦So imagine you are working as a vocal coach on tour with one of the hottest bands of all time. And the lead singer in the band is your boyfriend, who has been your idol since you've been a teenager. But then you start coaching

She's stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place



Lucky has been obsessed with rock star Dylan Ryder since she was a teenager and now at age 25 she has been dating him for a year.She has everything she wants,a career she loves and the man of her dreams so what happens when temptation in the form of Flynn Beckham gets in the way???

"I've wanted you since the minute I laid eyes on you,"I whisper in her ear."God,I fucking want you"

Can you imagine dating the heartthrob who hung on your bedroom wall as a teenager? I am not even sure who mine would be probably Jonathan Taylor Thomas or someone from the New Kids on the Block. Regardless, Lucky is living that life. When you first meet Lucky it seems her entire life is put together. She is dating Dylan Ryder, famous rockstar, owns her own bar and is in her own right a success. Her life is completely on track until Flynn Beckham makes her question everything.

***This review contains spoilers so be warned.****

I want to preface this review by stating this book is a perfect example of no matter how big of fan-girls we may be at Guilty Pleasures, that occasionally one of our favorite authors puts out a book that just doesn't work for us. It doesn't mean we give up on the author, it just means this one wasn't a good fit. These are the hardest reviews to post, but we owe it to everyone to provide honest
It’s sexy, sweet, angsty and impossible to ignore with a blurb that hints at all sorts of deliciousness with a “dimpled smile of a boy, hard body of a man, sings like an angel, fucks like the devil.” Beat is everything I expected in a rock star romance.

Lucky is living every girl’s fantasy. She’s dating Easy Ryder’s front man. The very man she’s been infatuated with since the day she first saw him perform live at her father’s bar when she was a teen. But when she meets Flynn Beckham, she slowly d
In the words of Hannah Montana, I might even be a Rockstar.

Beat was so good. I didn't even know it was the second book in the Life on Stage series. I just saw the book on audible, clicked, and devoured it. Everything about this from the couple to the romance was likable. Not going to lie, I enjoyed every second of this book.

The one thing I would change is the whole love triangle deal. Ugh, I just don't like them and sometimes they work. It's rare for me to like them and I was definitely getting

DANG.....this book was definitely not my normal go to read! It has some of my biggest book no-no's, but I continued on because I just fell in absolute and total love with Flynn Beckham. I wanted to throttle Ms. Lucky for a large portion of this book, but even that was over shadowed but the dimpled wonderful-ness of Flynn. I will say I'm glad I stayed with this to the end, I wish the epilogue was a bit longer after the torture of the last half of this sounds like I didn't like it

I loved the first book “Throb” in this series really really very much but this 2nd book is only half good as the first one.

Well, there is this love triangle here. Though I don’t like them much, I can accept love triangles if the one who needs to choose is wise and decent and not indecisive.

This is life. People change, feelings change. We can’t help it sometimes. Happily ever after is not always possible. That is why, if one of the people in a relationship is suddenly attracted by someone else

We first meet Flynn in Throb.
He’s an up and coming rockstar, looking for love.
He seemed sweet enough and genuine enough.. but is he really???

YES! Yes, he really is!!!
I am in love with Flynn!

Vi Keeland knows how to write a book boyfriend, let me tell you!

Flynn is beautiful, has dimples…dimples ladies, and he can sing!
He’s a gentleman, sweet and caring.
He's also an amazing uncle, funny, charismatic and HOT!

He reminds me a bit of Kellan... kind of. Not sure if I should make that comparison or no

3.5 STARS... Fun rockstar read, but could not connect to the dynamic of the love triangle, or get in the head of the heroine.


Genre: Rocker Romance – almost a love triangle
Cover: 8/10
Writing: 7/10
Heroine: 5/10
Hero: 9/10
Humour: 3/10
Hotness: 5/10
Romance: 7/10
Extra book Details: Heroine & hero POV; 1st person. Stand alone.

Beat was a good, but not great read for me. I didn't mind the 'love-triangle', it was pretty obvious who the winner would be. I couldn't really care for the heroine, she was normal enough. Halfway through it went all Thoughtless on me though, ie; indecisive heroine and the hero and heroine

Oh yes this lived up to all the hype it's been getting and I just loved Flynn.

I did feel uncomfortable about the cheating but it worked both ways so I'm not judging on that account.

One of the better rocker romance stories.

"Flint to spark. Fire." Boom!
Beat is like dark chocolate, a guilty pleasure that melts in your mouth. And speaking of melting, be prepared to do just that. I already loved Flynn after meeting him in Throb. The poor sexy rockstar didn't get the girl on the reality TV show. I'm sure he had an infinite number of offers to console him afterwards, who can blame them? The TV show brought his beautiful dimpled smile to their attention, but unfortunately his band, In Like Flynn, had yet to be recognized

5 beautiful stars!

I am a huge fan of Vi Keelands work. So when I saw she was writing Beat I was super excited to meet her rocker Flynn. And boy oh boy did he meet and exceed my expectations!!!

I'm sure it contains that element that many cant read ( it states in blurb that it's a love triangle) but I'm the type of reader where I have NO LIMITS to what I read. It's fiction, sovI can handle just about anything. But if you're willing to look past the characters imperfections and see it for what it is

My 5 Star "In Like Flynn" Review
Addictive, Engaging, Super Sexy, A Make You Feel Good Time

Beat is classic Vi Keeland!

Characters you fall in love with. Smart and sexy writing. Great banter. Lots of humor, lots of smexiness, a touch of angst, and an all over skin prickling feel good story.
As your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveller in the dark,
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

Although Beat is a standalone novel there is a previous book, Throb, that has our hero in it.

Speaking of our hero, Flynn is such a great combination of sweet and sexy in a rockstar!

The story in Beat stars when Flynn goes to our heroine’s bar, Lucky’s. Lucky’s is the bar that Lucky, our heroine, opened years ago and now is owned by her and her best friend. Lucky is also an amazing singer, a

Sensuality: PG-13

25 yr old voice coach cheats on her cheating, d-bag, rockstar BF with a hotter, younger rockstar.

Reminded me too much of Thoughtless with the musician background and the early morning rendevouses. Altho not as bad, being compared even remotely to that notorious braindead twat - Kiera - aint a good thing.

This was my first book by Vi Keeland and I read it in one night because Flynn captured my heart. He's the kind of rock star that makes you smirk, squirm, and your pulse race. He's funny, cocky, caring and definitely smokin' hot! Ms Keeland created a lovable and memorable character that you can't but love!
