Scandalous Beat (Tempest, #6) by Michelle Mankin

A rock star. A stripper. Can a hookup lead to a happily ever after?

Juaquin Acenado.

A drummer. A rapper. A rock king.

My brother’s best friend.

Arrogant. Forbidden. Do-not-go-there-trouble.

The sexy Latino was too old for me when we first met and I was in high school. But he was my first love. I’ve never gotten over him.

Miriam Jackson.

Stripper. Exotic dancer. Her stage name is Queen.

My bandmate’s little sister.

Spicy and sweet. The spark that fires my inspiration. The rhythm to my beat.

She’s the one I imagine when I settle for the others. My ultimate fantasy. Only I can never have her.

Until I arrive in Vegas to record my solo rap album, visit a strip club, and there she is. Miriam was supposed to be in college, but she’s not. She is so not.

Sin City, a place where anything can happen, and I’m the only one in the band who knows her secret.

So why resist anymore?

Who could possibly stop me?

Love will always come back to find you even when you think it is long gone. Juaquin and Miriam grew up together in Seattle's Southside and moved away. Juaquin is in Vegas to record his solo rap album when he sees Queen Miriam at a strip club. She has been his dream for years and nothing will stop even band loyalty to her brother. Lots of secrets are revealed on both sides as this always destined couple try to get their happily ever after. Mankin writes with emotional depth as you get invested in the couple and their issues from the begging. Lots of good plot twists along with seeing past couples from the Tempest and Black Cat Records.

Latino Heat Scandalous Beat by Michle Mankin is the final book in the Tempest Series. I have been waiting for this one!! My favourite Hispanic drummer King finally gets his story. King is all sexy Latino man who likes to be large and in charge and wants a Queen by his side. But not just any girl will do because he needs someone more spicy than sweet! This couple has a past and gets a chance at a future, but nothing comes easy for either of them. The chemistry between them is muy calente!!- Hot! Hot!! This book has all the best feels- so much love and desire. I felt very at home reading this story because it reminds me of my own Hispanic family and these characters felt like a real family to me. Now I crave my Abuela's tamales and migas! 5 grande stars! For more indie book reviews:

I am a big fan of this author and this series. Each story is filled with obstacles, flawed characters, emotion, love AND hot rockers…...what more could you need? I also love how the author writes stories that bring attention and awareness to certain difficult topics… single parenthood, abuse, addiction, suicide, etc. I could not wait to finally be to read King’s story and I was not disappointed! While you can read this book as a stand-alone story, I would have to say that you would be severely penalizing yourself from missing the way the author beautifully and creatively wove each story with all the others… dropping hints from the beginning books to the very end of this series while watching all the characters you have grown to love on their journeys separately and together as a band and family. In addition, I really believe that there might be a lot of details or references in the books that you “may not” understand otherwise why the author brings up certain plotlines. Now that I have finished this story, I am definitely going to have to go back and start from the beginning to appreciate the beauty of each story again.

If you love rock star romance stories that grab you from the beginning and don't let you go until you've read the very last page, then you need to read Scandalous Beat by Michelle Mankin. I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

Once again Michelle Mankin has captured my heart with her modern-day twist on a Shakespearean tale... Tempest - noun: a violent windy storm. That term perfectly matches the rockstars of the band, Tempest. I've been devouring this phenomenal series ever since the first book released back in 2013 and I've been addicted to them from the very beginning. Each of these boys have captured my heart, so as soon as I discovered that KING was getting his story, butterflies filled my stomach. I cannot even begin to tell you how long I have waited for him to get his happily ever after. Scandalous Beat was filled with romance, drama and an adventure of a lifetime. A story of a King who finally gets his Queen! Whether you've read the entire Tempest series or this is your first book, they can easily be enjoyed as standalones... Although I STRONGLY recommend reading them ALL! Michelle Mankin writing is flawless and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!

Miriam is the younger sister of Juaquin's band mate, off limits for anything other than friendship. Young Miriam has been harbouring a crush on Juaquin but he's on the cusp of a success which will take him far away. Fast forward a few years and life has become tough for Miriam dancing so she can pursue her dreams, keeping secrets from everyone who knows her until a face from her past turns up. Will the attraction still be there? I loved this story, with the exception of the Mafia involvement but luckily that was only a tiny element. Don't plan on getting anything done once you start reading this book, it is impossible to put down! I'm looking forward to the next one. I was provided with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Flove this book. King and Miriam's story sucks you in and takes you on an emotional roller coaster. My heart was torn to pieces for what Miriam went through. I love how King put her back together and how he stayed by her side when she needed it the most. This book is well worth the read. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Juaquin and Miriam had known each other as kids growing up in the rough neighborhood of Southside. Juaquin had eyes for Miriam but kept his feelings in check since she was young and her brother, Bryan, were on the fast track to making Tempest a hard rocking band made up of friends and family. Juaquin wanted a better life for Miriam, one he never thought he was good enough to give her plus Bryan would never approve of the couple. As time went on Miriam tried different times to show Juaquin she was all grown up and wanted Juaquin only to have him break her heart time and time again. Years later after assuming Miriam was still in college in California and having the life he thought she was worthy of he and a low life friend rented out a whole strip club waiting to see the famous hot stripper who was performing there. Imagine the surprise when Juaquin recognized that the finale was none other than Miriam. Was this finally the time for Juaquin to profess how he really felt about Miriam or had too much time passed and he had broken her heart one too many times? This was a book that had some hardships and darkness thrown in. It also taught you about never giving up on what you want and what you will go through to achieve it. Another great rock romance by this author. I received this book as an ARC for a freely given and honest review.

I loved this series!!! And I've been waiting for King's story all along and Michelle did not disappoint! There is instant chemistry with these two who have a long history. I love that it has been building for so long and feels like it needs to happen for them. You ache for them to figure it out. This is beautifully written and a perfect ending the the series! After such a long series it's like you truly know these characters with all of their flaws and loving hearts. There is always a deeper story in Michelle's writing and thats why I will always read everthing she writes!
