Beat of the Heart (Runaway Train #2)
by Katie Ashley
After years of bad relationships and a cheating ex-fiancé, twenty-eight-year-old Mia Martinelli prefers healing her patients’ hearts on the Cardiac Care floor rather than risking having her heart broken again. But that all comes to a screeching halt when caring for the head roadie for Runaway Train puts her into the orbit of drummer and Latin Lover, AJ Resendiz. After a scorching weekend of steamy passion, Mia’s intention of getting out with her heart unscathed is challenged by the stud with the wicked sense of humor, especially when he wants to continue seeing her. But when the harsh reality of AJ’s hoard of female admirers sends her insecurities into overdrive, Mia bails, leaving him handcuffed to his bathroom shower.
AJ never imagined that after two weeks of the best sex and female companionship he’d ever experienced, he would need rescued by his band mates from his shower prison. Although he tries to forget the sensual brunette whose curves made his mouth water, AJ can’t get her out of his mind…or his heart. Months later when he finally seeks Mia for answers as to why she left, nothing could prepare him for their life-altering reunion.
Can AJ prove to Mia that regardless of the women after his body, his heart belongs only to her?
Katie sure knows how to wrote a book that will not only melt your heart but also melt your panties - Oh my rockstars just have a special place in my hear and I am more than happy to add AJ to the list of men who literally make my heart beat.
I think AJ might be my favourite member of this band so far . . . he just worked his way under my skin and I don't think he plans on going anywhere any time soon. He is everything I want in my men - Cockiness with a side of sweet, I also love the fact it is a guy going after a girl we rarely see that in such a way that makes you realize it is more than just the sex . . . although the sex is very good.
Mia oh my she is an independent women and knows how to hold her own - I love her fierceness and I loved watching her walls come down because she was one guarded girl. Her story is something that makes you love her more - I felt protective towards her and as much as I wanted her and AJ to just ride off into the sunset I knew she needed someone to prove to her he is worth loving.
"How terribly embarrassing and inconvenient it must be for you to have a sensitivity problem down there. I mean chicks expect a night of passion with Mr. Latin Lover, and they get mere seconds." She makes a tsking sound in her in her throat. "Pity."
When the door closed behind her, Rhys and Frank howled with laughter. "Holy shit, dude! I can't believe what she just said to you!" Rhys exclaimed, wiping the tears from his eyes.
I stared momentarily at the closed door before a smile spread across my cheeks. "Now, that gentleman, is the future Mrs. Resendiz, right there."
This book will surprise you in more ways than one, I loved watching the story flow and how connected I was to that Katie is an amazing author and I am so happy to have followed her writing journey on all of her tours and let me tell you she will not be getting rid of me any time soon.
