Lauren Robbins is the one that got away. Lured by the promise of fame, Nick Blackthorne turned his back on the possibility of a regular life and love to focus on his career. But years down the line, still unable to erase Lauren from his heart, Nick realizes he needs to find her, even if all she’ll accept from him is an apology for walking out all those years ago.

"Until this afternoon, Lauren had said all of about ten words about you."
Nick's heart did a rapid little thud at the idea of Lauren talking about him. "What were those ten words?"
"I went out with Nick Blackthorne once. Stupidest thing I've ever done."
Dull disappointment dropped into his gut. "That's twelve words."

Review 1 (reviewing as a romance book)
Big thumbs up in this department. When a famous rock star come to town to rekindle an old romance with the only w ...more
I'm going directly to the point here: The heroine killed the whole story for me. I get that she wanted to protect your son but she could have at least told Nick about his son. Instead, she went out of his way to hide him from his father for 15 years!!! 15 years, people!! And her reasons were so shallow. Nick is a rock star and she knew when they started going out that that was what he wanted to be. Heck, they grew up together! His ambition was no secret to her. So when he started ...more
At the beginning of this I felt like I was missing something as Nic received the wedding invite if a couple who he claimed saved his life. As that wedding invite lead to him going off in search of the love of his life who he left behind I paused my reading to look for previous books in this series. Turns out Nick had lost his muse and he found it after fucking with a couple......wait what? He actually had sex with the couple w ...more
Firstly how could i not love a story based in my adopted country; Australia? Added to the fact that when we first meet Nick, he's in Melbourne, walking Collins Street... HELLO... walk that street almost every other day...(yet to meet a Nick Blackthorne though...darn it).
Such a POWERFUL story about second chances and redemption, Love's Rhythm, had me sighing, giggling, laughing, crying... a whole gamut of emotions that i did not expect to ...more
Oh boy, this book rubbed me wrong! Way, way, way wrong. Moving on...
Nick Blackthorne is the stuff dreams and I mean erotic as well as sappy love ...more
I loved it!
Nick....what can I say. I am going to steal these lines from Stacia's review (hope you don't mind - these lines were burned in my brain too!)
His fly was zipped, the top of the treble cleft tattooed on his lower abdomen peeking from above the low-slung waistline of his jeans. His thick black hair hung ...more
I know I sound like a broken record when it comes to Lexxie Couper, but sorry I have to say it again......LOVED this book.
We met rock star Nick Blackthorne in Tropical Sin and he is still dealing with things that have happen to him over the last two years. And dealing with the changes in himself as a person and an artist. Nick is at a crossroads and thinking about where his life is going and where he came from.
Nick has received an invite to the wedding of frien ...more
Love’s Rhythm is sweet, short and filled with breathless moments of love. I was going to say passion and that’s also true but unlike some contemporary romance/erotica that lack layered characters or plot, Love’s Rhythm found its… rhythm. I couldn’t help myself. 4 solid stars.
Okay, seriously, I liked this book more than I thought I would. You coul ...more
My biggest disappointments were the typical overuse of the F-bomb and many instances of using God's name in vain. That is a big turn off for me.
In all honesty I could not recommend this book. Oh, yes I love rock star books and have read some that were excellent bad ...more
I loved Nick's character, and Josh was adorable. I was a little angry at Lauren for keeping her secret for so long...I can understand why she was bitter and angry at Nick for leaving her, but jeez, I would have at least hit him with some child support!
And yikes, I read the blurb for the prequel to this...Nick seems to h ...more
*Love’s Rhythm is a re-release from Lexxie Couper and Entangled Publishing; it has been modified slightly from the original story.
From the minute Nick Blackthorne walked on the page in Tropical Sin, I was intrigued and as bits and pieces of his story unfolded I knew one thing, I HAD to know everything about his life. In Love’s Rhythm we get a good look at his life prior to superstardom, but we also get to see a man humbled by the woman and life he left behind. While there is no denying ...more
Nick and Lauren were a couple very much in love. He was on the verge of rock greatness and Lauren didn’t want the life that went with it. Nick chose the music and walked away. Now 15 years later, Nick has never found anyone to come close to Lauren and decides he wants her back and goes home to discover she’s been keeping a sec ...more
Super cute, super sweet, super fast story about a second chance at first love, hidden secrets and finding redemption.
I really did enjoy this book, it was a very fast paced book and I really loved Nick, however I found Lauren for the most part to be wishy-washy and frustrating. Initially I felt a lot of empathy for her and understood her actions, to a point. But her dramatics in the present just grated on my nerves.
That being said, overall, it was a ...more
How, even though he was a bastard(:P not the accurate slang, but I'm not a bad-mouthy), Nick's heart cried for one, and one only. Lauren.
Sweet story, if you exclude the way-too-steamy parts(my POV).
♥ XOXO ♥
I just can't. This book made me squirm in a bad way. Not at all my idea of a romance. Especially given the excerpt of a novella about Nick in the back of the book... that happens mere months before he reunites with the "love of his life" Eyeroll. Just blech.
I actually did find the story captivating and entertaining. The premise is built around the second chances and redemption love trope. After 15 years of separation, our famous rock star, Nick Blackthorne decides he’s left behind the only woman who ever meant anything to him so he walks out of a recording session and heads her way. I found this to be a little ...more
Nick walked out from the girl he loved for groupies and concerts. But some things get wrong in his life and he wants to see her again. All of the old fires start again and he finds out that he has a son. And things get complicated ...more
I wasn't sure what to expect, as this was the first book I'd read by Lexxie Couper. It may have been a shorter book than I prefer to read, but it was one with a story line that kept my attention. I read the whole thing in one sitting.
I liked the interaction between the characters as they became reacquainted. And when they became "reacquainted" between the sheets, they became REACQUAINTED! Whew! Those were some seriously scorching love scenes.
The only thing that bugged me ...more
Regardless of my 3.5 stars, I did enjoy this short novel. So why the mediocre rating? Well, it was the pace. Oh baby, it was just so erratic. I appreciate that it's a shorter novel and so things need to get moving but it was just too rapid, therefore completely unbelievable. However, Nick Blackthorne is one Hot Rock Star, and this book definately scratched an itch. The storyline was enjoyable and I really loved Josh, that cheeky little chappy gave me a laugh or two, as did his friend Rhys.

The story's good. It's always nice to read about two people getting back together. Maybe this one's a little bit too fast for my taste but it's still good. I hated Lauren for a while but I understood her point of view. Nick was very famous and she didn't wanna get dragged through all of that again (along with their 15 year old son). In the end, I'd say Nick made the right decision.
The ending scene was really really good! I love it!
The backbone of the story was good though. It ende ...more

“A cold?” Jennifer interrupted. “You can’t leave him on the ground because he’ll catch a cold? How ’bout you can’t leave him on the ground because he’s Nick Blackthorne?”
