Australia’s most famous rocker is about to make a fierce comeback. After a very dark period in his life Nick Blackthorne is back on the right path and ready to perform again. When an invitation to a good friend’s wedding shows up on his doorstep there is only one woman he can think of adding as his plus one. It is unfortunate that he left her in the dust fifteen years ago to become a star.
Lauren Robbins left the big city to return to her small hometown after Nick shattered her heart to pieces. Now she is a very happy kindergarten teacher and mother to a rambunctious teenage boy. It was hard for her to let go of Nick. The last thing she needs is him popping back into her life…and their son’s.
When Nick shows up to ask Lauren on a date he gets way more than he bargained for. A satchel to the face is nothing after you learn you’ve been a dad for fifteen years and nobody told you. What will happen when the truth is revealed? Is it possible for Nick and Lauren to rekindle their love and what will happen when a certain boy learns who his father is?
Lexxie Couper stole my heart with Love’s Rhythm! Of course it didn’t hurt that I was already half in love with Nick Blackthorne after reading Tropical Sin. I was so excited when I realized Ms. Couper would be giving Nick’s story life and she did not disappoint! In Tropical Sin, we get to know Nick as a wounded man with great emotional depth and a big heart. Love’s Rhythm picks up after his weekend of self-discovery at Bandicoot Cove. Nick is reevaluating his life and the decisions that have brought him to this point. The one regret is letting go of his first love Lauren. Once these two characters share the same page the electricity goes into overdrive. It may have been fifteen years but the attraction between these two remains blistering. I love the battle that wages within Lauren. Her reactions are so real: the burning attraction, the longing and then the realization of what she has kept from him. Lauren has every right to the resentment she carries and her struggle with all her varying feelings make her vulnerable and intriguing. Nick tears me up with all the emotions that go through him in Love’s Rhythm. I mean what would it be like to discover you have a fifteen year old son and you lost the years with him because of one selfish decision you have always regretted? It makes for one stunning story in Love’s Rhythm. As Nick and Lauren struggle with the immense feelings between them; they must now navigate a very new world. Each must face all the decisions that led them to this point. Ms. Couper gives the reader an epic tale of everlasting love! She has the ability to blend passionate sex and heartfelt story like a master! Love’s Rhythm is an absolute Recommended Read!
