How does she do it? If you have read book one in this series you would have already met Simon. I took an instant dislike to him in For All The Right Reasons, he was a total douchebag. How Ann Lister got me to not only like him but fall for him in this book is unbelievable. I want so much more from this story. I am very thankful there’s a full length novel to come.

I understand now why Simon was a complete pig previously, I don’t agree with his behaviour, but I can see he was emotionally distress

I loved this book. I love the second chance romance. I loved seeing how they met and fell in love

I can't wait for their full story next. Great book Ann.

I wish this would have been longer! Now the long wait for the continuation of the story of Simon and Dakota!

Beat of His Own Drums

Simon was a dock in the first book and i didn't really care for him but I am actually happy he got a novella and soon a full story of his own. Ann writes great stories of good men even if they are sometimes bad they usually have a good heart.

Very good read!

I loved Book 1 and this book raised the level up just a bit more than I expected. Simon rubbed me the wrong way for a bit, but now that I know the deal, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt for now. Can't wait for the next book! Should be a doozy!!!

2.5 stars. Honestly I'm not impressed. I don't like books that flashback they annoy me and distract me from the story. Yes I got a small incite into who Simon is but not enough for me to stop disliking him. I'm hope the next book has no flashbacks and shows us the real Simon.

Sorry this on wasn't for me.

Not a fan of a whole story being a teaser for a novel.

Simon Gallo, drummer for Reckless and brother of Ben Gallo, is attracted to other men. He explores this with his drum tech one night and they become inseparable. However, something happens and we are fast forwarded to a few years later and Dakota returns to apply for his old job. Their relationship is rekindled as hot as ever.

But...it is then, when Simon is ready to out himself, we find out their story will now be a novel. Not impressed.

This is a novella and also book 2 in the Band of Brothers Series by Ann Lister, you need to read the first book "For All The Right Reasons " to fully understand Simon Gallo's story in this book.

Let me point out first , that after reading book one, I couldn't stand Simon Gallo I wanted to smack him into the next week so when I found out that Ann was writing his book in this novella I was pondering "How will she ever redeem this jerk?" Well.... not only did she redeem him, Ann made me fall in lov
