Book Review: Fractured Beat (Meltdown #1) by R.B. Hilliard 3

Fractured Beat (Meltdown #1)

by R.B. Hilliard





When Grant Hardy, Meltdown’s lead singer, falls off the stage in the middle of a concert while under the influence, his record label has no choice but to step in and take control.

The solution is simple.

Send Grant to rehab and avoid a public relations nightmare by covering it up as a bad case of the flu.

When the rehab facility’s recommendation for extended treatment starts to affect the label’s bottom line, they are forced to find an alternative solution – hire an in-house counselor for the duration of the tour.

There’s just one problem.

Grant Hardy isn’t an addict.


My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:


What you did in your past is just that, the past. There’s no shame right now in this room, Mallory.   There’s only you and me.


I’m going to love you forever.




My Review:


Not a typical rocker romance, Fractured Beat was extra special and had an intriguing mystery and a shocking who-done-it I certainly didn’t see coming. A hybrid mixture of suspense, rocker, and adult romance, the plot was entertaining and easy to follow and I was quickly engaged with the storyline. The characters were diverse and appealing, although not always likable – just like most real people I know. In attempted to solve the mystery, I devised and tossed several theories, but I was wrong, so wrong. I was eager to solve the identity of the saboteur but couldn’t settle on just one and had difficulty in determining a motive.   Once the romance began, the storyline sizzled and snapped with sensuality, Grant was a rock star after all, and in more ways than one.
