A Beat In Time by: Sandrine Gasq- Dion
reviewed by: Becky
What if you had a second chance at your first love?
Best-selling author Serena Devane has spent most of her life running away from the man who broke her heart and left her too afraid to fall in love again. Now she's back home after a 15-year absence, ready to get a fresh start on life. There's just one little problem. In an effort to help her research the rock music scene for her new novel, her take-no-prisoners publisher has unknowingly set Serena skipping down the path that leads straight to the man she has tried so hard to forget.
Jensen Pratt is the drummer in a world-famous heavy metal band. When Serena grudgingly agrees to take the pre-arranged drum lessons for the new book, the sparks fly as unresolved issues hang in the air like a wrong note. To sweeten the deal, he offers to help Serena learn the music scene. All those hours together could be a blessing and a curse because the second she lays eyes on him, Serena knows she could fall again. But as they say, every rose has its thorn. Serena is blindsided when she agrees to try again with Jensen and then finds out he is engaged to be married.
Devastated, Serena is once again on the run. This time, it's her family who centers her and reminds her that love has many faces. A late-night house fire and a little dog bring her face-to-face with hunky firefighter Vince Rossetti, a divorcee with a great sense of humor and a huge heart who cooks. As Serena falls under Vince's charms, Jensen returns vowing to make things work.
Pulled between both men, Serena must choose the past or the future.
I don't read M/F books often, and when I do they have to be good to hold my attention, well this one grabbed me from the start and wouldn't let go, but then again, I should have known it would be brilliant because of who wrote it :P!
We meet Serena in the prologue, when she first meets Jensen who turns out to be her first real love, and her first real heartbreak!
When we next see her she is a successful author and is moving from New York back to Arizona, which holds painful memories. This is where she sees Jensen again.
These two have a spark, but Serena realizes he isn't the Jensen she knew back in high school, then again everyone changes right? Then she finds out he is engaged.
The pain is real and the struggle to hold onto something that it may be best to let go of is something most, if not all of us can relate to, and it is hard to see Serena go through this, but Jensen is worth it right?
By chance Serena meets someone new, someone she should have met sooner, Vince ( I LOVE Vince!), and this causes her to think about what is best and who is best for her!
Join Serena as she struggles between two men, and her difficult journey between the past and present! You will love this book guys, no matter what the genre! Thanks Sandrine, for pulling me out of my comfort zone and making me really love the trip!
