Great addition to the Heart of Fame series. I really enjoyed getting to know Nick Blackthorne’s drummer. Not much was known about him before this story. (This makes it a stand-alone story.) The interaction between the characters was outstanding. Noah would drive most people crazy and yet Peppa is able to center him. Sex and music make an awesome combination. I found myself thoroughly enjoying this story. The only thing that might have made it better for fans of this series is more interaction between other members of the band. But, for those who haven’t read the series, this reinforces the ability to stand-alone. Expect a melt down while reading. Noah knows how to keep a beat in more ways than at the drum set!
Noah and the rest of Nick Blackthorne’s bad are thinking of getting back together but don’t have a singer. As they talk about this problem at a bar, waitress Peppa Kerrigan overhears them. Peppa has a wonderful voice and wants to audition for the band but how? Challenging Noah to a music trivia contest is her answer. She knows Noah is known for his knowledge of music trivia but she is sure she can win. But, can she over come her shyness so she can sing? Noah just knows this woman seems to get him and wonders how to keep her around. He sure hopes she can sing!
He never missed a beat...until she taught him a whole new rhythm.
Heart of Fame, Book 4
Back when he was playing drums for rock star Nick Blackthorne, it was easy for Noah Holden to focus on the sticks in his hand. Now that the band is getting back together, he’s excited—and worried. His ADHD has made every minute of his post-Blackthorne life a chaotic mess.
His apprehension is blown away when a bar waitress makes him a proposition—and not the kind this king of drums is used to.
When Peppa Kerrigan overhears the band talking reunion, she pushes her self-doubt aside, calls on her encyclopedic music knowledge and challenges Noah Holden to a trivia contest. Her prize should she win? An audition. His? A kiss. Their smoking sexual chemistry guarantees victory—for them both.
With Peppa, Noah is finally able to control his stormy creative energy. But when his wild past catches up with him, he faces the fight of his life to keep from losing his smoky-voiced angel. The one woman who keeps his mind—and his heart—staying on rhythm.
Warning: There’s a thrumming, primitive, sexual energy in every rock drummer’s body, just waiting to be released, surging to the fore with every pounding strike of his sticks on the taut skin of his drums. Now imagine that raw energy in bed. With you…
