Review: RELENTLESS RHYTHM by Michelle Mankin

Title: Relentless Rhythm

Author: Michelle Mankin

The one she really wants is out of reach.
The one he really needs is already taken.
Dizzy Lowell, rhythm man for the rising rock band Tempest is a wizard on the guitar and a wonder with women. But the hookup specialist hides his emotional scars beneath his suave exterior. He never lets anyone truly touch him.
April Reynolds, the confident bartender of the Diamond Mine, knows her way around a cocktail, but Dizzy has her all mixed up. She knows what’s safe. She’s tired of settling, though. It would be so easy to fall under his spell.
Except for that ring around her finger.
Two searching souls separated by a thin metal band.
Some dreams are dangerous.
Some secrets shouldn’t be shared.
Sometimes what we wish for most can never be.

My take...

I was extremely excited to get Dizzy's story. He is one of the guys of Tempest that I have always had a soft spot for. And I must tell you that his story did not disappoint. We've seen bits and pieces of him and his past before, but this time we get the real deal. We readers get to experience him like never before. Even with his past and the pain and hurt that he has endured…he is one of those guys I will always think back fondly on. Absolutely adored him.

I really, really liked April. And I got to say that I am not a huge fan of cheating but for situations like the one April has found herself in, I am actually ok with it. Once you read you will understand. Her home life is beyond a nightmare and the man that she is married to doesn't deserve her. So yeah, in the end I was ok with her decisions she made throughout the book. She is a sweetheart of a person and truly cares for her loved ones. I hurt when she did, I smiled when she did. I just liked her so much. The perfect girl for our boy Dizzy.

Other than that little tidbit of info, (I know some people hate to be surprised there is cheating in a book) I don't want to go much more into the story because I would hate to spoil it for you. Just know I loved it so much and I think you will too. It is very suspenseful towards the end. The kind that has you sitting on the edge of your seat. Mankin has once again written a book that made me feel! Looking forward to more books in this series and anything else Mankin wants to write.
