He wants the world and the admiration of everyone in it. 

Sean Taiden, the inconspicuous drummer of Reckless Beat, is sick of living in the shadows of his bandmates’ success. He’ll do anything to gain the recognition he deserves. Even if it means dancing in a music video to the Reckless track that drives a knife into his broken heart whenever he hears it. The saving grace is the tempting choreographer who may be the one person able to distract him from the agony his life has become.

All she wants is the peace that comes with solitude.

Melody Jenkins knows all about fame. She knows enough to determine she doesn’t want a part of it anymore. After quitting her professional dance career, she set up a quiet studio and focused on starting a new beginning away from prying eyes. Until a sexy drummer strides into her life, making her crave something she can’t have while also pushing her to expose secrets she can’t bear to reveal.

Conflicting aspirations and one inextinguishable passion.

She needs to hide from the world she once owned. He wants to rise to the top, proving to himself and his friends that he’s always been the heartbeat of the band. Caught between what they need and what they want, Melody and Sean have to decide which is more important—their individual plans for the future or their feelings for one another.


I’m always guaranteed a scorching hot read when it comes to Eden Summers’ Reckless Beat series. In Sultry Groove, book 4 of one of my favorite Rock Star Romances, this author gives us page after page of hilarious, emotional, and sexy goodness. This is a book I expected to like, and found myself  devouring. With the ‘realness’ of the love story and the emotional upheaval that I went through while reading, this book was the complete package for me. A romance that had me laughing out loud one minute, and having, what I can only call, an emotional breakdown the next – I say, is a winner, and a romance reader’s dream come true.

SULTRY GROOVE is about a man who craves more of the spotlight and a woman who wants nothing to do with it. This is about a man and a woman who crave the light, but is forever in darkness. This is about a man and a woman finding hope and light within each other’s arms. This is about a rock star who feels invisible and a dancer who will do anything to disappear. This is Sean and Melody’s story. It’s beautiful, captivating, and it gutted me and healed me in one fell swoop.

I’m a ridiculously emotional reader, as you can tell by most of my reviews. The gut wrenching, heartbreaking, pit in my stomach reads are my favorite. Sean and Melody’s story flipped a switch for me. I’m not sure why, and I’m not sure how, but I’m so glad it got to me as much as it did. That’s not to say that’s all this book was. I mean, it’s the Reckless Beat men. They are dirty talking, foul-mouthed, sexy as hell, and stubborn as hell, and they make each and every book the gems that they are. SULTRY GROOVE was clever, hilarious, and extremely enjoyable, helping me laugh through the tears. So get ready to experience every emotion possible while diving into this great read.

A profoundly emotional story that had me distracted for hours on end. A story that hit close to home, surprised me, delighted me, and moved me. Eden Summers had me under her spell in Sultry Groove, so much so, that I never wanted it to end. This series, these characters, this emotional pull I get while reading these books, THIS RIGHT HERE, is why I read. This is why I review. THIS is why these stories stick with me and never let go.

Eden Summers does a great job setting up Ryan’s story for us, leaving us wanting more. I cannot recommend this series enough. Every single one of them is a must read for sure!
