Title: Fractured Beat
Series: The Meltdown Series #1
Author: RB Hilliard
Genre: Romantic Suspense
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.
“I absolutely loved this book. One of the best books I've read all year.” ~5 Star Review by Leigh Shen
“Having never read R.B. before I wasn't sure what I was in for and I am so glad I took a chance and read this book! It had a little bit of everything...steamy scenes, enough suspense to keep you guessing, characters that are well developed and you will fall in love with and, well, rock stars.” ~5 Star Amazon Review by Erin McFarland
“Wow! This was my first read by this author and I'm impressed! Fractured Beat had a unique story line that sucked me right in! I didn't want to put it down! I love any music/rock star book, but this one was about so much more than just that.” ~5 Star Review by Sammy’s Book Obsession
This is my first RB Hilliard book and I can't wait to find time to read more. I am typically a slow reader but I devoured this book in just a little over a day. I had to keep reading so I knew what was going to happen next.
Grant is the Rockstar who seems to have the world, sure the band has had some hiccups over the years but they are going strong. That is until it isn't and Grant finds himself in Rehab for a problem he doesn't have. Grant's new mission is to find out who did this to him and why. What he wasn't prepared for when returning with the beautiful counsellor that was waiting for him upon his return. Grant had been the typical Rockstar with the ladies until he laid eyes on Mallory.
Mallory arrived to be a private counselor to the lead of Meltdown. When she arrived she quickly finds that Grant doesn't need her help. Mallory is her own kind of wrecked and has very little self worth thank to her past. She is determined to keep moving forward from that past and help others.
This is so much more than your standard Rockstar romance. The lies and mistrust threaten to bring down this band. Can they save the band? Can they clear Grant's name? Will they find a love that is forever?
This was a good book and I do recommend. There was a little bit more duplication in the dialogue when switching points of view than was necessary. But I enjoyed the dual POV.
