    Until this afternoon, Lauren had said all of about ten words about you.
    Nick's heart did a rapid little thud at the idea of Lauren talking about him. What were those ten words?
    I went out with Nick Blackthorne once. Stupidest thing I've ever done.
    Dull disappointment dropped into his gut. That's twelve words.

    Adult review for erotic content.
    Review 1 (reviewing as a romance book)

    Big thumbs up in this department. When a famous rock star come to town to rekindle an old romance with the only woman he's ever loved, sparks fly immediately off the bat. I loved that the story burned hot right at the start and the background information came later as we got to know more about the couple.

    Not gonna lie. Nick was quite the (using technical terms here folks) hottie. He was attractive, smart (he figured out something early on that most book heroes would have been too stupid to notice until at least 75% in), and sentimental. Plus, he's ready to throw away his womanizing days and settle down. I'm glad I didn't read the prequel book to this one first because Nick was still acting wild in that one. When I do read it, I think I'm going to imagine him as someone else so my image of him being the newly reformed bad boy will stay in my head.

    His fly was zipped, the top of the treble cleft tattooed on his lower abdomen peeking from above the low-slung waistline of his jeans. His thick black hair hung around his face, awry from her hands, brushing eyes that studied her with an unreadable intensity.

    He looked like a sexual god.
    He looked like a rock star.

    But he's not all sex on a stick...

    He didn't want to be a walking cliche. He didn't. He wanted to be-
    His phone vibrated in his pocket, a second before The Wiggles started singing, Hot Potato.

    His stare found its way to Lauren's face, to her soft lips, her clear blue eyes. For the first time he noticed fine lines at their edges, lines that told him of a life lived without him. They looked beautiful on her.

    (he thought) Fix it now. Give her everything you should have the last fifteen years. Make her remember what it was like. Make her cry your name. Make her plead for more. Make her love you again.

    Yet, their first meeting in after so many years went more like this :

    Nick Blackthorne was here in Murriandah, and she'd rendered him unconscious with the very satchel he'd given to her fifteen years ago.

    My final thoughts on this as a romance book : Love. I especially love how the single mom aspect was handled. Since it's a personal subject for me, I find this plot point as one that either works or it doesn't. In the case of this book, it worked.

    Review 2 (reviewing as an erotica book)

    The sex was h-o-t. No complaints in that department. The scene where Nick held Lauren up a door and went down on her - picture me in a little melted puddle.

    The terminology was n-o-t. Many complaints in this department. I've often wondered how I'd do writing erotica. Sometimes I get this crazy idea that I could rock it out. Most likely, I'd fail miserably. The biggest thing I wish writers would learn to work around is outdated and cringe-worthy terminology. Squealing, suckling, stabbing tongues, rods of steel, sheaths, weeping sex, spurting seed, etc. etc. It's not hot. It's not sexy. There's got to be a way to write a sex scene without resorting to such strange terms. This isn't an isolated incident, so I'm not specifically picking on this author. I just noticed several of my least favorite terms in Love's Rhythm. Were these terms enough to distract me from the sex? Nope. Nick and Lauren were smoking hot. I was happy.

    One last bad, bad term : Like a junkie wanted a hit. If I never see a reference to love and drug use again, it will be too soon.

    Was this book worth the read? If you like sweet romance and hot sex? Abso-freakin-lutely.

    SPOILER ALERT!!

    I'm going directly to the point here: The heroine killed the whole story for me. I get that she wanted to protect your son but she could have at least told Nick about his son. Instead, she went out of his way to hide him from his father for 15 years!!! 15 years, people!! And her reasons were so shallow. Nick is a rock star and she knew when they started going out that that was what he wanted to be. Heck, they grew up together! His ambition was no secret to her. So when he started to get successful, the relationship went south and she blamed it all on Nick. Yeah, I'm pretty sure she was partly to be blamed too!

    Another thing I absolutely hated about the girl was that she never knew the meaning of compromise. Never! She wanted Nick to quit his career! Ha! There was no middle road with her. It's either her or his career. :( I hated her! Gah!


  3. Rachael*Caribbean*girl*bibliophile Rachael*Caribbean*girl*bibliophile says:

    My first read by this author, spoilers and excessive obscenities ahead










    At the beginning of this I felt like I was missing something as Nic received the wedding invite if a couple who he claimed saved his life. As that wedding invite lead to him going off in search of the love of his life who he left behind I paused my reading to look for previous books in this series. Turns out Nick had lost his muse and he found it after fucking with a couple......wait what? He actually had sex with the couple who's invite he received.......who the fuck tries to track down an ex they once loved to go to a wedding of a couple they once had sex with??????.........anywho moving on.......

    So Nick frantically rushes out and tracks down his first girlfriend and love of his life Lauren. Why'd they break up? Because Nick wanted to be a rockstar more than anything and even though he's fucked countless, numerous, women over the fifteen fucking years since he left Lauren, that doesn't matter because he still loves her.......Anywho so Nick finds Lauren she accidentally brains him , he's knocked out she takes him to her best friend's house and within the blink of an eye...... I mean I blinked and this fucking woman is naked on her friend's bed with this fuckwit! I mean come on!!!! Where's her pride? Did she lose it in her hot wet quivering pussy????? I'm ashamed of you Lauren!!!!!! Anywho so the phone rings and it's her son which thankfully shocks the senseless Lauren back to her senses and she puts the horny rocker in his place and leaves. So Nick through some deducing figures out Lauren had his son and goes to get drunk.... because idk he's Nick the rock god??? Next day he goes to find Lauren and in the blink of an eye......yup you guessed it..... they're fucking.....for real this time! And then this simple bitch.......in the heat of the moment........when they can't find a condom.......she saysI'm on the pill......... Are you fucking kidding me??????! This guy left you behind ,you brainless fucking idiot,and fucked oodles of fucking women, which you knew, because it was all over the papers, yet it never occurred to you his filthy dick may be chock full of diseases???? I'm fucking ashamed of you LAUREN!!!After the act though she's scared Mr. Groupie fucker may have given her an STD 🤦


    The best part was Josh's reaction to learning Nick was his dad, I teared up at his words........but then couple pages later he's over it 🤦. This book seriously needed to be expanded and slowed down. Everything was glossed over and these people moved on like 15 years hadn't passed at all.

    Anywho I skimmed ,through the haze of rage ,to the end.

    Dear author cream gushing from a pussy isn't sexy, it actually sounds like a trip to the gynecologist might be necessary.... sincerely...... utterly grossed out!

    And there you have it......some of the many reasons why I hate second chance romances........... Not a good reason for the separation, sex with OP in between and yet I'm to believe that the love still endured so strong that they're back at it two minutes after meeting..........yeah that's fucked up!

    I hated Nick so Lauren keeping his child from him didnt bother me and to an extent I agreed with her. He walked away and didn't want anything to do with her so fuck him......but really in the interest of the child that's wasn't cool.

    Lots and lots of issues with this one, I may try more in this series though .



    1.5* because aside from the cream 🤦😫 there were some hot moments between dumbfuck Lauren and fuckwit Nick.



    ********Eta
    After reading 4 books by this author I give up! When her couples get together they are so wonderfully loyal and sweet to each other but the road to the actual relationship is just too damn messy! In every book!!!!!! Ugh!

    I read this years ago and I guess my tastes have changed.
    I did like that there's no examples of his groupie days in the story. Just brief mentions of there being a lot of them... but between the copious numbers and the 16 years wasted.
    Well this book doesn't make me feel good about their HEA. I mean the guy shows up after 16 years of no communication whatsoever... not knowing if she's married or a mother... and just expects them to get back together.?
    Why?
    Why now?
    He's had his fun and now he's ready to take her back? ...cause that's the way it sounds.
    Like some feckless ass is tired of fame and wants to retire without a fuss.

    And a word to the author... why the F*ck didn't you have Lauren at least have a relationship or two? Not be some pathetic martyr with a dried up vajayjay?

    Anyways, it was a fun read. He does grovel and admit he was a prick with some lovely remorse... But overall the romance was not particularly satisfying.
    I mean, when i was 36 the last thing I wanted was to be picked up like a favourite old shoe that had been forgotten in the corner gathering dust.

    FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC... BLOODY EFFING BRILLIANT!!! OMG...

    Firstly how could i not love a story based in my adopted country; Australia? Added to the fact that when we first meet Nick, he's in Melbourne, walking Collins Street... HELLO... walk that street almost every other day...(yet to meet a Nick Blackthorne though...darn it).

    Such a POWERFUL story about second chances and redemption, Love's Rhythm, had me sighing, giggling, laughing, crying... a whole gamut of emotions that i did not expect to feel. I thought i was going to really enjoy this story; how could you not? Hot, sexy musician looking for a shot at redemption with his one true love? What i did not expect was this story to suck me in so wholly that i had to devour it all in one go. Not many stories can do this to me, but i walked away feeling that the power of love combined with the power of music is a mighty, mighty thing and its never too late for a second chance or second shot at what you want most in this world... maybe i'm a sap, but i'm alternating between laughing and crying as i write this review...SIGH..

    LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!!! A true 5 star read! And i'm just throwing this in for you Ms. Couper cause i can; Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi :)

    And Nick... sigh... dude, i live in Melbourne, seriously look me up sometime, okay?

    Love’s Rhythm by Lexxie Couper is loosely tied to the story Tropical Sin Lexxie Couper that was published as part of The Bandicoot Cove anthology. Since I am not someone who enjoys menage stories, I refrained from reading Tropical Sin and I believe that Love’s Rhythm stands perfectly well as a standalone though Nick’s character might make a deeper impact on you (if at all that’s possible) if you read Tropical Sin first.

    Nick Blackthorne is the stuff dreams and I mean erotic as well as sappy love dreams are made out of. Almost 37 years old, Nick is the ultimate rockstar who has had more than his fair share of fame and fortune. Sinfully good looking with a rich voice to die for and the lyrics of his songs which practically speaks to the soul of his fans, Nick is a man who seems to have everything going for him.

    34 year old Lauren Robbins is a small town school teacher and the mother of 15 year old Josh who is the centre of her very existence. Lauren might keep her secrets closely guarded but at night she dreams of the man whose haunting music to which falls asleep to every night, the man who tore apart her world when he chose fame and fortune instead of giving them both the chance they deserved.

    Nick’s restless musing and the memories invoked by the lyrics of the very first song of his that had broken records has Nick turning up in his hometown of Murriundah, wanting nothing more than to apologize to the one woman whom he should have done right by. From the first kiss itself that scorches and turns turns the tables around shoving all of Nick’s noble and good intentions aside, Nick becomes a man determined to show the love of his life that they both deserve a second chance and that this time he is committed to staying.

    Love’s Rhythm was such a perfectly fantastic read that the first night I picked up the story I couldn’t put the book down. It was only the thoughts of falling asleep while at work the next day that made me reluctantly put the book down and sleep. Even through the rest of the busy work week that followed, I found myself thinking about Nick and those kisses of his that just reaches deep inside of you and tugs at your baser emotions. There wasn’t a single part of me that didn’t crave for Nick’s kisses and I could have seriously gone on reading about his kisses alone, because yes, they were that good.

    Lexxie Couper is an author whose snarky humor always gets to me. I love and revel in a story that can make me smile, and an author who can write scenes of passion that can rock the very foundations of my existence is an author who earns my utmost respect. And with just having read two of her books, I can safely say that Lexxie is an author who has got what it takes and her Australian heroes just about makes me want to hop on the next plane and make my way to the land down under.

    Nick makes for purr-fect hero material. His intensity, the way his focus never wavers from the goal in sight and the way he could just make me melt on the very spot won me over from the very start. I loved that Nick feels emotions deep into his very soul, that he lets his emotions play a huge role in the music that comes from the depths of his very being. And when he realizes that Lauren is the spark that ignites his very soul, there is no stopping him from laying it all out for the rest of the world to see and that in my eyes makes him one of the greatest heroes ever!

    Lauren is scared, and rightfully so when she had been shattered the last time Nick had walked out on their life together. It had broken her apart and had taken her a long time to feel a semblance of normalcy in her life and when Nick turns up again and stirs everything up includng her voracious appetite for the man in question, needless to say Lauren is scared out of her wits in fear that all her secrets are about to come out in the open and that there would be no stopping them. Deep in her heart, Nick is the man Lauren yearns for and she knows that there would be none other who can complete her in the way Nick does. And I loved Lauren for being wise enough to accept that fact.

    If a scorching hot read enough to melt your panties off with enough emotion to suckerpunch you when you need it and that unique dose of humor that can make you chuckle out loud is what the doctor ordered for the day; grab yourself a copy of Lexxie’s latest and indulge. You definitely cannot go wrong.

    Like the lyrics of a beautiful song that resonates through you, Love’s Rhythm is a story that would blow you away because with Nick Blackthorne smoldering up the pages, Lexxie Couper demands no less!

    I made the mistake of saying to someone in the first 10% of this book not sure if I'm going to get into this. How wrong was I! I stayed up 'til 1am finishing it. I couldn't put it down.

    I loved it!

    Nick....what can I say. I am going to steal these lines from Stacia's review (hope you don't mind - these lines were burned in my brain too!)

    His fly was zipped, the top of the treble cleft tattooed on his lower abdomen peeking from above the low-slung waistline of his jeans. His thick black hair hung around his face, awry from her hands, brushing eyes that studied her with an unreadable intensity.

    He looked like a sexual god.
    He looked like a rock star.

    But he's not all sex on a stick...

    He didn't want to be a walking cliche. He didn't. He wanted to be-
    His phone vibrated in his pocket, a second before The Wiggles started singing, Hot Potato.

    I have to say, it I didn't love Nick before that scene, I definitely did afterwards.

    For a hot, swaggering, cocky rock star to have the Wiggles as a ringtone just sealed it for me.

    The whole reunion between Lauren and Nick was handled really well and I can't add to what everyone else has said so I'll just say that I'm glad I persevered and read this wonderful (and yes...hot!) book.

    4.5 Stars

    I know I sound like a broken record when it comes to Lexxie Couper, but sorry I have to say it again......LOVED this book.

    We met rock star Nick Blackthorne in Tropical Sin and he is still dealing with things that have happen to him over the last two years. And dealing with the changes in himself as a person and an artist. Nick is at a crossroads and thinking about where his life is going and where he came from.

    Nick has received an invite to the wedding of friends McKenzie and Aidan (Tropical Sin was their story). The Plus One on the invite makes Nick think about going after the one he left 15 years ago. His first love that he has never stopped loving.

    Lauren Robbins is a kindergarden teacher in the small town she grew up in and loves it. Lauren is shocked when Nick shows up at her school. She has not seen Nick since he walked out the door of their apartment 15 years ago for the life of a rock star. Lauren has never gotten over Nick no matter how hard she tried. Lauren also has a secret and must deal with the ramifications not only with Nick but with someone else close to her.

    This was a wonderful emtional story about love lost and found again and dealing with the consequences of past choices. Lexxie pulls you in with Nick and Lauren's story and you do not want it to end. I fell even more in love with Nick with Love's Rhythm. The stuggles that Lauren and Nick go through are so well written that you feel everything they do. I laughed with them and I cried with them and I rooted for Nick and Lauren with all my heart. Of course this story is HOT! The passion between Nick and Lauren jumps off the pages. Lexxie Couper has done it again.

    Happy Reading!!
