  • A fun enemies to lovers rock star romance

    Skipped a Beat was a fun enemies to lovers rock star romance. We already met Jesse Lee and his bandmates in Playing by Heart, and this book focuses on Ryder, who is the drummer, and the son of Cameron Kyle from Fighting the Fall. I loved the connection to the Fighting series, and that the characters from that series made appearances in this book as well. Don't worry though, this book can still be read as a stand-alone. I really loved how the two main characters, Ryder and Jade met, and I thought it was fun and original. Jade is down on her luck and sneaks on a tour bus looking for shelter. Jade definitely hasn't had it easy, and is a bit of a man hater. She clashes with Ryder right from the start, and I think the attraction doesn't make it easier for either of them. It was emotional at times and there was some drama, but nothing that was over the top in my opinion. I was invested in the story and characters, and I loved getting to know them all better. I really hope there will be more books in this series, and that they will focus on the other two bandmates Chris and Ethan. It was nice to be reunited with Jesse Lee and Bethany, and hopefully his brother Ben will get his own book (I am keeping my fingers crossed)! I am a huge fan of Jamie's writing style, it has such a great flow and it really draws you in. There was a lot of character growth and the romance was done really well. Jamie is definitely an author whose books I'll automatically one-click, and get excited about before even reading a blurb. I look forward to what comes next in the Love, Hate, Rock-n-Roll series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • 4.5 Stars. Ryder is a great rock star Hero!

    Ryder is a great rock star hero!! I would say he definitely falls more into the good-guy category, but the book still has plenty of grit and drama. I enjoyed this obook overall. The couple had great chemistry from the beginning but definitely didn't like each other at first, or at least they tried to convince themselves that was the case, so the relationship develops over a little bit of time. For those that have read this author's Fighting series, the quick cameos from the Vegas/MMA crew are a great little bonus. I will note that this book, which book 2 in the series, reads very well as a standalone and could be read without having first read book 1 (although some elements of that book would be spoiled a bit by reading this one first). I had a few minor things I didn't love about this one. Overall I liked Jade too, but I didn't love the way the author wrote her as having this amazing smile that made any guy's eyes glaze over and them become immediately enamored and stupid - even married or already happy in love guys. That was a little bit Cheesy for me. But, I was pulled into the story the entire time and so that one minor thing didn't ruin the book for me in any way. If you like rocker books, I would recommend this one!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • So in love with Ryder!!!!

    I am so in love with this book!!! OMG!!! Ryder is my new BBF!!! I fell in love with him in Playing By Heart and he does NOT disappoint in his own book! How could he considering his background. His family is from one of my very favorite series, the Fighting series! If you haven't read it, you are SO missing out!!! Ryder and Jade rub each other wrong right from the very beginning and it is hilarious! Ryder just keeps stepping in it no matter what he does. He is such a jackhole in the beginning of this book. And Jade, oh my! She's tough as nails, but I love her! She's determined to stand on her own two feet even with everything she's been through. There are enough sparks between these two to start a forest fire! And when Jade finally lets down her wall even a little bit, the heat factor soars! But she still holds part of herself back, feeling she's not worthy of someone like Ryder. Thinking that when he knows her past he won't want anymore to do with her. But Ryder is determined to win her over no matter what it takes. There are some pretty big twists towards the end that will really surprise readers! And that ending! Swoon-worthy!!! Man I loved this book so much! I can't recommend it enough. It can be read as a standalone but I think it would be much better read after Playing By Heart! My favorite quote: Music is the only thing that has the ability to unite all walks of life regardless of sex, socio-economic status, race.
