Dimpled smile of a boy 
Hard body of a man 
Sings like an angel 
Fucks like the devil 
I was stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place. 
At fifteen, his poster hung on my bedroom wall.  At twenty-five his body hovered over mine.  Every girl’s fantasy became my reality.  I was dating a rockstar.  Yet I was slowly falling for another man.  

The problem was—the two men—they shared a tour bus.    
Flynn Beckham was the opening act. 
Dylan Ryder was the headliner. 
What happens when the opening act begins to shine so bright, it seems to dim everything else in its wake? 
I’ll tell you what happens.  Things get ugly.

  My 5 Star "In Like Flynn" Review
Addictive, Engaging, Super Sexy, A Make You Feel Good Time

Beat is classic Vi Keeland. 

Despite the trigger "triangle", which I am not a fan of and stay away from, I trusted in the author enough to know there would be more to it than the cliche. I believed there just had to be.

And....without giving away the whole story, I was also prepared to not like the story or DNF because of the red flags I normally avoid.

And what did I get for trusting the author...

Characters you fall in love with. Smart and sexy writing. Great banter. Lots of humor, lots of smexiness, a touch of angst, and an all over skin prickling feel good story.

Lucky is a rockstar princess. Both her parents are in the business, so she has grown up and has always been surrounded by by the life. She does not have the typical misunderstood attitudes towards rockstars and is not naive in any way. Very level headed. her relationship with her father who she absolutely adored is heart warming and your heart just bursts for them. But she also has a demon that has plagued her for years keeping her from doing the one thing she loves above all, performing. 

It doesn't hurt her character in any way nor do you get irritated as a reader with it because Lucky is a very strong woman. She knows her demon, admits, and is very logically working on it step by step to overcome. I felt Lucky's issue actually strengthened her and made her extremely likable.

Enter Flynn.

Now the author went completely out of her way with his character. He was just oozing sexiness, confidence, personality, and bravado. But totally adore him because even with all the rockstar persona and trappings, he's a really nice and sincere guy. has a nice family consisting of his sister and niece, Lainey, who by the way is a scene stealer.

When Lucky and Flynn meet....instant chemistry and the sparks are a flying!!!
 As your bright and tiny spark
     Lights the traveller in the dark,
     Though I know not what you are,
     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
Do they do anything about it? Nope, Lucky has a boyfriend and it's just not her thing.

But ooohhh are they attacked to each other.

Now we have Dylan Rider, the lead singer of Easy Ryder, Lucky's boyfriend and the love of her life since she's 15 yrs old.

Is he likable? Well he wasn't unlikable. But there was that one part that I was like WTH dude?? Really???

The chemistry between Lucky and Flynn was really hot, in every action, every word as they interacted. You could feel it.

Their banter was great. They truly were friends getting to know one another, and teased each other constantly. Had a smile on my face every time they had some alone time.

They were also great support for one another. Such a good friendship, that yes, obviously could no longer be contained.

Then there are Nolan and Avery, the best friends and sounding boards, fantastic secondary characters.

The story does get a bit angsty, a bit bumpy towards the end, but all gets resolved in a very happy and satisfying way. And did I feel bad for Dylan? Meh, not so much.

So if your worried about the triggers, not sure if you want to take the chance, trust in Vi, you will not be disappointed. I was very pleased how the whole story line was handled, loved where everyone wound up, and the epilogue will leave you with a huge grin.

Classic Vi Keeland.

“It isn’t the way I normally sing.  On stage, I usually have a guitar over my shoulder.  Even if I’m not playing it, it’s there.”
“Well, I need to see you holding your instrument to assess you fully, then.”
Flynn’s eyebrows quirk up and the dirty grin on his face is unmistakable. 
“The guitar.  I’d need to see you holding the guitar.”
“That’s a shame.”  He shrugs, the playful smile still on his face.  “But okay.  It’s your call.  Whatever instrument you want to see me hold is fine with me.”
“How big of you.”
“So now we’re talking about the other instrument again?”
I roll my eyes, although this conversation is having more of an effect on me than I let on.
