I was taken in by the very first sentence, Gwen is such a drama queen it’s kind of funny. The names she picked out for her cat’s and the meaning behind it made my heart hurt at the adorableness going on. I know how hard being a nurse is because I watch my mother do it every day. Gwen’s job is more stressful because she’s an ER nurse and I can’t even imagine some of the things she saw during her shifts. Her life gets turned upside down when Roderick moves in right next door.
Roderick is a drummer in a very popular band and has moved into a new neighborhood and oh my god..his accent, to die for. He may look hard core but he’s really very sweet and intrigued by Gwen. I love how he goes about basically courting her. His battles with the neighbors is something else. In my opinion Dale and Mrs. Kersh got their just deserts.
I really enjoyed reading "Tempting Beat". The Hearts of Metal series continues with "Heart Throb".
YOU NEVER KNOW…
Bleeding Vengeance’s drummer, Roderick Powell knows he’s a sod for feeling glum, especially after moving into a beautiful new home in a smart Denver suburb. But all his mates are partnered or married, and dreadfully happy. It’s enough to make a rockstar rethink his options. And even though his sexy neighbor has given him the brush-off, he’s decided to have another go – at this point he has nothing left to lose, apart from his heart.
WHAT LIES BENEATH
Gwen Mason’s romantic past has been bumpier than most – twice divorced by thirty, she’s had enough of broken promises. An ER nurse who keeps a brutal schedule, she’s happy to become known as the neighborhood crazy cat lady. But…the most delicious man has moved next door. He’s British, he’s famous, he’s a rockstar. And, hard as she tries, Gwen can't keep Rod Powell from breaking all her rules, and suddenly she sees a future she never believed possible.
