Blog Tour: Beat By: Vi Keeland

Dimpled smile of a boy

Hard body of a man

Sings like an angel

Fucks like the devil

I was stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place.

At fifteen, his poster hung on my bedroom wall. At twenty-five his body hovered over mine. Every girl’s fantasy became my reality. I was dating a rockstar. Yet I was slowly falling for another man. The problem was—the two men—they shared a tour bus.

Flynn Beckham was the opening act.

Dylan Ryder was the headliner.

What happens when the opening act begins to shine so bright, it seems to dim everything else in its wake?

I’ll tell you what happens. Things get ugly.
First of all let me flat out state that cheating or love triangles in books does not bother me.  I am probably going to piss a couple people off with my next statement but while I never want to do that I need to say that I’m not sorry for how I feel and that I hope you will be understanding and respectful like I always try to be to you all.  Okay here it is.  I don’t mind the cheating or love triangles because I can separate reality from fiction.  Am I saying that I never get mad about it?  No because there are a couple of series that I now no longer rush to read because something happened that pissed me off, but I always try to keep an open mind more often than not.  Now I am sure you are asking yourself why am I even saying all of this, well it is because in Beat there is cheating and a love triangle and I know that some readers refuse to read anything with cheating in a book. Hell for some of my friends and fellow reviewers, that is something they hate so I am just giving the heads up right now.

Now that is all out of the way.  Beat will get you worked up, both sexually and emotionally, or more specifically it will make you angry at times.  I’m not going to lie, even with me being okay with cheating or love triangles in a book, at times I was extremely pissed off at everyone in this book.  I think you can imagine some of my creative cussing that even had my husband blushing at times, it was not pretty.  But now even after all of that couldn't I put Beat down.  I was drawn in to not just the smoking hot sex scenes, but also the question as to what would you do if you were any one of the players in this situation?  While we think we may know, nothing is ever certain in life.

I always enjoy Vi Keeland’s books because I know what I am about to read will get me worked up in one way or another and Beat was no exception.  Please, if you are on the fence about reading it, please give it a shot but only if you think you can keep reality separate from fiction, because if you can do that then I think you will really enjoy Beat as much as I did.

Getting through Flynn singing is incredibly hard.  The way his throat moves, the way his mouth caresses each syllable of the low, raspy sound that falls from his lips.  I should be watching his posture, his breathing, the way his larynx forces out the words—but instead I’m focused on the beauty of his mouth and how the sound of his voice glides over my body, making it feel both warm and tingly at the same time.  I’m lost when the song finishes, yet I haven’t really observed him yet.
“So.  Give it to me straight.  What am I doing wrong?”
Ummm…absolutely nothing from what I can see.  Everything was perfect.  Don’t change a thing.  Shit.  “Could you do it again?  Maybe a different song, one you haven’t sung in a while.  So the sounds are less familiar to your body.  Sometimes that can give me a different view.”  At least I make it sound like a real thing when the words come out.
He sings again, and this time I force myself to observe.  “Hmm…your posture is great.  Most people have a tendency to favor one side of their neck, which makes them tilt a bit when they speak, and it becomes magnified when they sing, which puts strain on the muscles around the vocal cords.  Your alignment is perfect.”
“Thank you, it goes with the rest of my perfectness,” he says with a teasing arrogance that, from the little I know about him, I know isn’t real.
“You didn’t let me finish.”
“You can’t now tell me I’m not perfect.  I was already basking in the glow.”
“Actually, it was perfect…but almost a little too perfect.  Which makes me think you don’t usually stand this way when you sing.”
“It isn’t the way I normally sing.  On stage, I usually have a guitar over my shoulder.  Even if I’m not playing it, it’s there.”
“Well, I need to see you holding your instrument to assess you fully, then.”
Flynn’s eyebrows quirk up and the dirty grin on his face is unmistakable.
“The guitar.  I’d need to see you holding the guitar.
“That’s a shame.”  He shrugs, the playful smile still on his face.  “But okay.  It’s your call.  Whatever instrument you want to see me hold is fine with me.”
“How big of you.”
“So now we’re talking about the other instrument again?”
I roll my eyes, although this conversation is having more of an effect on me than I let on.
