Beats came with another most hilarious warning attached to it, just like Strings did.
"Backdoor sexy times"??? LMFAO!
I didn't like the plot line as much in this book. It was totally focused on Jinx pining after Toombs and it got old pretty fast. Part of the reason I enjoyed Strings was because of the music. In Beats, Jinx is kind of "blocked" making it impossible for her to create music. I think the author used this as a way to avoid exploring the music more. If the main character can't play, there is no music, right?
Jinx was a bit annoying. Totally different from the way Letty is annoying, lol. What Letty lacks emotionally, Jinx makes up for by being a whiney little baby all of the time. Whoever heard of a shy, moralistic drummer in a rock band called Killer Buzz Float? Get the fuck outta here! And anyone who can do the things Jinx does in this book, has no morals. Believe it, lol. But I still liked Jinx, really I did. I just wished she wasn't so damn whiney!
I always liked dark, tatted and silent Toombs. But once he opened up and we got to know him, I really just wanted him to be quiet again. He wasn't an idiot or anything, but you can't be dark, silent and sexy, when you're talking and all full of life. Yes, I'm impossible. But seriously, Toombs made a much bigger impact on me when he wasn't saying anything and just stared at Jinx all the time.
Rax...Oh, Rax. Well, let's just say that he is a lowdown SOB, but I love him! We really get to explore his and Toombs relationship in this book, and DUDE! It's like DEEEEEPPPPP!!! Like DEEP....Yup, what you're thinking is exactly what I mean :) I can't wait for the next book, Nocturnes, so we can see what happens with Rax because the ending of this one is like WOAH! I don't know how my boy is gonna bounce back from this one.
Overall, this book is worth the read if you enjoyed Strings. If you didn't, don't even bother. Beats is not any more "smut-less" than Strings, so your expectations should not be so. But you will have a good laugh at this one and get all hot and sticky from the sex scenes. They are...something. That's what I will tell you!
