Summary

For months, shy drummer Jinx Hardwick has been silently crushing on her tall, dark, and scary bandmate, Toombs Badcock. Drawn to his frightening ink and scars, she yearns to uncover the shadowy secrets lurking behind his silver eyes. But Jinx is too intimidated to even look at him, let alone talk to him. 

When she stumbles upon Toombs and their manipulative lead guitarist Rax in a compromising position, Jinx realizes her chances of winning Toombs’s heart aren’t just a long shot - they’re nonexistent. 

To make matters worse, Jinx’s family needs her at home. She’s about to back away from it all - Toombs, the band, her dreams of fame and fortune - when Rax makes her an offer she can’t refuse: a no-holds-barred night alone with Toombs. There’s one small catch. She has to go through Rax to get it.

This is the second book in the Hard Rock Harlots series.

Warning: Beats is specially formulated for horn dogs, porn oglers, smut peddlers, BDSM junkies, M/M and M/M/F addicts, DP dabblers, body modification connoisseurs, and lovers of A2M backdoor sexy times. 

If you don’t fall into these categories, can’t stomach hot man-on-man action, or if you have no idea what the above acronyms mean, please back away from Beats now. This isn’t the book you’re looking for.

Beating hearts

Loved this. Fast moving, rude, intense and both body and music driven. Toombs and Jinx make a hard won whole. Again, Lessa Lamb is incredible. Nuanced, fabulous spoken rythmn and warm voiced. Excellent.💖💖💖💖💖

The angst was palpable!

Oh my...

I fell in love with Jinx and Toombs and their seemingly impossible love for one another. I have to say this book has opened my mind more than I thought it already was, it has made me think more... and to stop and look at situations openly...

I think my insides are still coming down from this roller coaster! ... ughhhh

Narration and production on this book were superb! 5*!

Highly recommend

This book is just as funny as the first. It’s crass, and real. It has an honesty that should be cherished. I am so in love with Lessa and her easy to listen to voice. Such a fantastic performance. Written well.

Give her a drum roll

In Strings the first book in this series I found Jinx mousy, laid back, was not impressed, but being a drummer they really aren’t the center stage and don’t get a lot of recognition. So on to Beats Jinx story: Jinx is a caring loving family oriented person with a problem, being she fell for a guy that has a fetish and he’s got an asshole for baggage. Don’t get my meaning well no spoilers. listen to Lessa Lamb tell you this story how Jinx helped her love overcome an obstacle in there way.

“Beats” has the best Groove!

I just can not RAVE enough about how much I’m loving this series. It’s HOT! SEXY! Panty melting, wicked, goodness!!!
I did not want this book to end! The characters are all so diverse, and are people you really want to keep learning more about. Kendall draws you into this world so easily, you will loose track of time (or in my case loss of sleep.) I can not wait to devour more of this series!!!
And let’s not forget to mention how AMAZING Lessa Lamb did!! Her voices are distinctive to the different characters. She can actually sing! And her tones represent the actual emotions and attitude you would expect from the characters! She really knows how to bring them to life.
Kendall Grey & Lessa Lamb are a powerhouse team that will ROCK YOUR PANTIES (or Boxers) OFF!

No need to hesitate in weather or not it’s worth using a credit on because I’m telling you IT IS WORTHY! Or just out right buy it, you won’t be sorry.

I love this book/series!!

O M G I am loving this series! I didn’t even know exactly how I wanted this book to end. This book has a ton of sexual scenes but not all the typical ones. Jinx actually punches someone in the face during one. If you are not easily offended then you will love this book. Jinx is shy and a little socially awkward but she is learning to get past that. These characters are crazy and I love them. Kendall Grey could not have found a better narrator for this series. Lessa Lamb does an excellent job and even does a little singing in the book. I absolutely love Lessa’s voice. I definitely recommend this book/series.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!

This book is fantastic! The combination of Kendall Grey’s writing and Lessa Lambs narration take this book far and above many of the books I’ve listened to!!

I love these characters... well.... most of them anyway!!! They are real and so interesting that it makes it difficult to stop listening!!! It took me way less than 2 days to finish the audio... and I did NOT get my full night of sleep!!!!

I recommend anything authored by Kendall Grey... and even better if the Narrator is Lessa Lamb!!!

amazing narration!

it's truly tough to imagine anybody who could perfectly put a voice to Kendall Grey's work... but Lessa Lamb does it perfectly!
gives it the perfect attitude and spunk just like the writer has already bestowed upon these amazing characters!
love all her books... fingers crossed for more from the series!

In My Dirty Goodreads Folder

Rockstar romance about a new upcoming band. Three band mates become involved. m/f, m/fm, m/m I absolutely love the smokey and silky of the narrator, Lessa Lamb.

Another hit by Kendall Grey, with perfect narration by Lessa Lamb.

I loved Strings first but this book about the quiet drummer Jinx was awesome! She’s so different than the outrageous personality of the first book which I really liked how soft spoken and shy she was- it added a lot to the story and Lessa Nailed it! She’s super talented bringing the characters to life. Hot!

LOVE THE BEATS! (and not just the musical ones)

Beats, book 2 in the ‘Hard Rock Harlots’ series.
Let me first mention I love how the books title ‘Beats’ is woven into the entire book.
The main character Jinx is a drummer, so ‘Beats’ references to that, but it’s also about heartbeats and physical beats (you know what I mean when you listened to the book).
Book 1 ‘Strings’ does the same thing, where strings are not only a reference to musical strings, but also emotional heartstrings that connect people.
You really feel the Strings and Beats in these books, and that’s proof of some excellent writing!

This book has less humor and more drama and sex than book 1.
Jinx is completely different from our former main character Letty, so naturally this book sets a different tone than book 1.
I personally prefer Letty’s unapologetic humor and more lighthearted story, but I still enjoyed ‘Beats’ a lot.
The sex is equally hot as in book 1 (VERY HOT!).
I loved Letty’s contribution to this book, with her (was it 12?) step plan to ‘get the man’, haha.
I really enjoyed getting to know Jinx, Toombs and Rax better, and continue following Killer Buzzflow on their Tour.
I also liked getting to know Jinxes brother, and hope to hear more from him in future books.

You could read this book as a stand-alone story, but I would highly recommend listening to book 1 first. (it is TRULY AMAZING!)

The narration was just perfect! Same quality performance as in book 1, and I enjoy and appreciate it so much!

I got this Audio Book for free (thanks!). I'm voluntarily leaving this review.
Opinions and ratings are my own and not influenced by how I got the Audio Book.

Beats - Jinx

Like Letty from Strings, Jinx was a piece of work. Kendall Grey is a great writer and teamed with Lessa Lamb they delivered a very enjoyable listen. This was a great addition to the Hard Rock Harlots series. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
