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.
Meet Flynn and Lucky in this rock star romance!

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.
Luciana "Lucky" Valentine is the co-owner of the famous karaoke bar Lucky. The bar was started by her father, a famous artist. Her mother Iris Nicks is also a very famous singer. Her parents divorced when she was little and she grew up with her dad. Luciana has a beautiful voice but she is terrified of singing in public. With the help of a therapist she has created her own 12-step plan to overcome it. In the mean time she works as a voice coach for Pulse Records. She is also dating the singer of the famous band Easy Ryder, Dylan. When she was a teenager, he was her crush and now years later, he's her boyfriend.
Flynn Beckham is the lead singer of his band In Like Flynn. His band gets a break when he's asked to join the tour of the famous band Easy Ryder. He's also forced to take some voice coaching classes after having a nodule removed from his throat.
The night he meets Lucky, he knows she is what he wants. Too bad she's already taken by the douchebag Ryder. Staying away from Lucky becomes even harder once they are sharing the same tour bus.
It was easy to fall in love with Flynn. He was a great uncle (melted my heart when he took care of his niece), a good band mate and a good guy all together. He was funny, sweet and loyal. He tried his best to stay away from Lucky. It felt inevitable once he falls in love with her.
Lucky was likable. She was trying to overcome her anxiety. Meeting Flynn threw her for a loop. Ryder was her fantasy come true. Flynn was her true soulmate. I just wish, she had made a decision between the guys sooner than she did. Ryder was a true douchebag who couldn't keep it in his pants. So long looser!
