Rhythm of My Heart

Speed 3

Rhythm of My Heart is the third book in the Speed series by Jess Dee. While this book is part of a series it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I really enjoyed reading this story.

Eva Andrews is a makeup artist with the rock band Speed. She landed the job because of a wonderful talent. Eva tries to blend into the background but when Zachary Pace also known as Jonah Speed spots her. He falls head over heels for her. Zack is confused because Eva does not look like his destiny that his grandmother foretold him would be but his heart is in love. Eva fights that attraction because of a terrible secret that once out she feels he will run far away from her.

Eva came across as one of the bravest and strongest woman I read about. It takes a lot to go through what she did before even meeting Zack. Even with her physic powers she still comes across as realistic because she is not making money off it she is coping with it.

Zachary Pace is used to woman throwing themselves at him, but Eva is the one woman that is not looking for his attention at all. In fact if he left her alone she at first would have been happier. Zack comes across as level headed as you can when fame takes over your life. While he has had his wild days, those are in the past. He is looking for a different future.

The chemistry between Zack and Eva is blistering hot. The sex scenes were sizzling hot. I loved that they just did not fall in love and everything clicked. Zack and Eva had to work to make were relationship work.

While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I loved this story. I appreciated how realistic the story was portrayed. I could visualize the paparazzi that follow the band around and the trouble that would cause. I have not read anything by Ms. Dee before but I will be on the lookout for more and picking up the rest of books in the series that I have missed so far

Book Blurb for Rhythm of My Heart

He rocks every woman’s world, but his heart beats only for her.

Speed, Book 3

Makeup artist Eve Andrews is an expert at blending into the background. Landing a job with the rock band Speed is the opportunity of a lifetime, and thankfully as close to the spotlight as she’ll ever get again—until the band’s sinfully sexy drummer turns his dazzling eyes on her.

After a scandal shook his world, Zachary Pace, a.k.a. “Jonah Speed”, has given up the one-night stands and easy lays. One look at Eve, and he senses his self-imposed abstinence is about to come to a screeching halt—but he’s confused. His grandmother foretold his destiny lies with a beautiful redhead, not a tiny, brown-haired pixie.

Under the heat of Zachary’s intense focus, Eve’s resistance melts away, but not the façade that hides her terrible secret. And when she accidentally catches a glimpse of his heart’s desire—his fated redhead—her instincts tell her to let him go…before he gets too close. Before he sees the real woman behind her mask, and her heart is left in the dust of his almost-certain retreat.

Warning: This is a Speed book, so you know there’s gonna be a small element of fantasy to it. And a big element of romance. Oh, yeah, and whole lot of sex. Sex hot enough to make you throb to the rhythm of a very sensual beat…
