Every rock band needs their bad boy, right? That's me. Hookers, drugs, DUIs— been there, done that. I'm in a Downward Spiral and proud of it (see what I did there?). When the band manager, Archer, hires Bennett to keep me from screwing up while the band is on hiatus, I may have finally met someone who won't take my attitude lying down. With the three of us cooped up to

Another fabulous entry in the Replay series from K.M. Neuhold. It takes skill to write any believable relationship but, for me anyway, there's an even greater risk in writing about multiples and making it feel like you're watching a real-life throuple or more.

In Beat of Their Own Drum K.M. nails it perfectly. I felt all the love and pent-up frustration that both Archer and Bennett had been dealing with since their split 16 years earlier, and how they were desperately trying to find their way bac
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I’ve loved this series from the start so I was thrilled to be asked to review Beat of Their Own Drum by K.M. Neuhold and I did love this book despite that I’m not a huge fan of Daddy kink, but in this case it seemed to work pretty well. This book was complex, emotional, and undeniably sexy.

For years Jude, drummer for the hit band Downward Spiral, has been on his own downward spiral brought on by his low self esteem and has self medicated with drugs and prostitutes. With the band on hiatus, band

KM Neuhold has a thing for writing fantastic MMM, and this is one of her best yet. Jude, Archer, and Bennett are all so different and have their own issues, but they slot into each other's lives much better than I imagined they could. And I loved it. The dynamic between Archer and Bennett had me hurting for them.. how terrible to be so in love but so seemingly incompatible in one critical area. But Jude? Jude is the perfect bridge for them to find their way back to each other for keeps.. and to ...more

I'm always really excited when a new KM Neuhold book comes out and even more so when it's MMM, and I loved this latest story in the Replay series. Jude is on a path to total destruction when Archer decides that the band needs a complete break. Bennett is Archers ex and agrees to come on board to get Jude back on the straight and narrow. Trouble is that Bennett and Archer have never gotten over each other and Archer also has feelings for Jude.
The three of them end up holed up together as they try

4.5 von 5 *

Der Musikmanager Archer sieht seine Erfolgsband Downward Spiral auseinanderbrechen. Die Jungs sind ausgebrannt, haben mit vielen unterschiedlichen Problemen zu kämpfen und Archer versucht verzweifelt ihnen zu helfen. Dabei bleibt sein eigenes Leben längst schon auf der Strecke und von seiner einzigen, richtigen Liebe Bennett hat er sich vor einer Ewigkeit getrennt, da sie einfach nicht kompartibel waren. Doch ausgerechnet Bennett könnte zumindest den Drummer der Band, Jude, wieder auf

Beat of Their Own Drum (Replay 3 / KU) by Kyleen Neuhold is live and she NAILED IT! A 5 star read! I have been anxiously waiting for Jude's story and she did NOT disappoint. This MMM book is a fantastic read. It's an incredible thoughtful story and it was SO HOT, yet sweet and tender too. I absolutely LOVED Jude, Archer and Bennett!!! Excellent storyline and excellent writing. There is some light BDSM with a sprinkle of daddy kink. As someone who doesn't really care for daddy kink, Kyleen nailed ...more

I'm not a big fan of triangles because I don't believe you could love two persons equally. But this story was believable and left me feeling giddy and happy that such love does exist.

Archer and Bennett have a past that never had a closure. I loved how Archer put his feelings aside in order to help Jude. The dynamics of their relationship was amazing in how they complement each other. I just loved how they managed to work everything out in order for their relationship to survive.

Kyleen writes amazing MMM but this one was truly fantastic. I loved the previous relationship between Bennett and Archer & the love that didn't die. Jude's story about being rejected by Archer & then losing his virginity to a prostitute because of it, made me gasp & hurt for him. I love Daddy kink that doesn't involve age play and Archer is just the sweetest Daddy. He balances Bennett's dominant side so perfectly. No words can really describe just how much I enjoyed this book. It ins ...more

I have no way to express how fantastic this story is! It's a second chance romance in more ways than one. A second chance at love and second chance at life! It's a heat filled, emotional ride that you don't want to get off of! This is a must read and one of my favorite MMM books of the year!

This book was a mess and there were so many things wrong with it!! I am not confident this author knows anything about a successful MMM relationship and what makes it work, or even WHY it works, and just decided to "give it a try" because it's in!! Let me say this: I ADORE MMM books, when done well, when executed masterfully, when there's love and passion and friendship and desire and EQUALITY!! This author made a bumbling mess of a story that COULD have been a great one!! There was NONE of that ...more

A kinky mmm romance with three wonderful and complex main characters, each one well-rounded and interesting. Together they were simply irresistible!

Bennet and Archer have a past together and still love each other despite having broken up years ago, so that could have put them on an uneven footing with Jude, but that doesn’t happen. The author makes sure that they are all equals in this relationship, every man bringing something unique to it and finding love and care with the other two in equal

Beat of Their Own Drum is the third installment of the Replay Series. First, there was Linc and Jace, then Lando and Dawson, and now we have the much-awaited story of Ben, Archer and Jude. I liked the first two books in this series and had been itching to get my hands on this story that had been hinted at in the previous two books, and boy it did NOT disappoint.

The Replay series is about Downward Spiral, an openly gay group of rock superstars. The series runs concurrently for each member during

Beat Of Their Own Drum is the 3rd book in the Replay series by KM Neuhold. As with the prior books, it is superb!

This time we get to follow along as Asher, Downward Spiral's manager finds love. As Jude is losing himself to drugs and hookers, Asher hires his ex-lover, Bennett to handle Jude. First, I have to say, that Asher and Bennett's story is fascinating. The two men always worked so well together, except for in the bedroom. They both desperately loved one another, but couldn't give the other

(4.5 stars)

This is book three of the Replay series, and for maximum enjoyment I do suggest reading books one and two, with the returning characters and the way this is written, it would just flow better. With the first two books we see just how much the band relies on Archer, and just how dedicated he is to the guys. Somehow along the way the guys have lost their way, with depression, drugs, booze, prostitutes, writers block, they seemed to have hit that downward spiral (pun i

“Kinky Rockstar/ second chance MMM Romance”

*I received an ARC of this book and voluntarily reviewed it*

This is the 3rd book in the Replay series and I was unsure if I was going to like this one because of the kinkiness but it was really well written and the kink was on the lighter side.

This book follows band member Jude through a drug and prostitute fueled meltdown where band manager, Archer, is forced to hire his ex-boyfriend and celebrity rehabilitator, Bennett, to whip Jude into shap

Bennett, Archer, and Jude. The Dom, the Daddy, and the Brat! Bennett and Archer have a history, so there's a lovely second chance romance aspect to this book that I totally loved. Add Jude into the mix to bridge the gap between Bennett and Archer and man oh man! So good! I love the D/s and Daddy kink aspect of the story, and yes it is mild as the author stated. I would have liked to see a little more of that, but that's only because that's just my thing. I do love how the author goes back and fo ...more

This is the 3rd book in the Replay series and one I’ve really been looking forward to reading, it did not disappoint!!! I really thought Jude would be the star/ main attraction of this book and would over shadow Bennett and Archer with his troubled road to destruction. I was so happy when I fell just as in love with Bennett & Archer and their history as I did with Jude, I love the way they interacted with each. None of them is the perfect guy for one of the others on their own, they need bot ...more

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this book a lot. This author is amazing as always. Well developed characters and story, perfect combo of steamy, sweet, and a little drama. Plus bonus of one of my favorites-MMM. While neither D/s or Daddy are typically my favorites, I very much liked them here. It all fits and meshes the characters perfectly, is well done, and isn’t overwhelming. There is plenty of focus on the unique individuals and their needs and personalities and feelings too.

Archer has managed Downward Spiral for ten years. Watching them become famous and then watching them spiral down. The guilt he feels for failing to see how bad it actually was makes him want to find a way to help Jude. The baddest of the bad boys.

He knows who can help Jude but it means he will have to find a way to deal with the man he still loves. Bennett knows that Archer’s request for help will reignite the feelings he’s carried for Archer since they broke up years ago. He can’t say no, to e

I have been dying waiting for this book!!! The tiny hint of it in the previous book drove me crazy and I couldn't wait! Poor Jude and his tortured soul screamed he needed help and the fact that it takes two very strong men who are so drastically different! Just the dynamic that these three men have is scorching but in the quiet moments it warms the heart. Jude is spark but it takes Archer and Bennett to keep the fire going for these three. Watching them find and accept the balance needed to make ...more

Triple the pleasure, triple the delight and triple the action! Beat Of Their Own Drum is just plain ol' YUMMY! The characters are so memorable and the story has a great mix of sexiness, wit, and heart. Every book Miss Neuhold writes gets better and more pleasing. And these Replay stories hit me as extra special. These guys captured my heart right from the very first book and I seem to crave more. You can't go wrong with a Replay book and that is the truth!

Beat of Their Own Drum is the third in the Replay series by KM Neuhold following the guys in the band Downward Spiral. I love how each of the books in the series run on the same timeline and you could potentially read them in any order and still understand what it going on. Each book has intersecting characters and timelines but focuses on a new set of MCs. This story follows Jude (the notorious sex, drugs, and rock & roll drummer), Archer (the band’s manager), and Bennett (the Dom and celeb ...more

I give the third book in the Replay series 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Things I loved:
- bad boy drummer Jude
- stressed to the max manager Archer
- unresolved mutual attraction
- different characters' perspectives of the same scenes from the previous two books
- Chuck Palahniuk reference
- the hot, hot sexy times

Things I didn't care for:
- fairly stoic, kinda arrogant former military Bennett
- the seemingly easy and quick drug rehab
- the weird dynamic between Bennett and Archer

I'm guessing Benji's book is next.

Amazingly written story

K.M. has done it again. This book has got great characters and an even better story. I fell in love with Jude in the first book and knew he would have an amazing story. I was not disappointed. Jude is a disaster until Bennet walks into his life and takes control. Then Archer and Bennett are able to find their way back to each other thanks to the dynamical relationship between the three of them. They each give each other what they were lacking before. This is a must read se

This was good! I liked this story,it was an easy steamy read that I finished last night in one sitting. I enjoyed the kink dynamics the author incorporated between the MCs, they really worked...Light-D/S...Daddy Kink (NO age play) and some Domestic Discipline yes please! I will say that there was a little bit of insta-submissive/love in this which I didn't mind at all...but may bother people that want/need everything to be realistic. To me it worked well and I'm definitely looking forward to the ...more

I love this series, but I didn’t love this book as much as the other two. Jude is a drummer but he isn’t drumming at all! I know a few drummers and they are drumming every chance they get!
The MMM was well done, but I missed the emotional connection between Bennet and Archer. I thought their love (and their history) would be more epic. I love Daddy kink and I don’t mind BDSM, but I don’t like it when a contract comes on the table before the attraction/feelings. So this is all because of my person

K.M.Neuhold has long since been a romance junkie. When she’s not writing she’s reading or spending time snuggling with her husky or her husband. She fell in love with M/M romance last year and hasn’t been able to turn back. There’s nothing she loves more than love in all its forms.
