Product Description

What if you had a second chance at your first love?

Best-selling author Serena Devane has spent most of her life running away from the man who broke her heart and left her too afraid to fall in love again. Now she's back home after a 15-year absence, ready to get a fresh start on life. There's just one little problem. In an effort to help her research the rock music scene for her new novel, her take-no-prisoners publisher has unknowingly set Serena skipping down the path that leads straight to the man she has tried so hard to forget.

Jensen Pratt is the drummer in a world-famous heavy metal band. When Serena grudgingly agrees to take the pre-arranged drum lessons for the new book, the sparks fly as unresolved issues hang in the air like a wrong note. To sweeten the deal, he offers to help Serena learn the music scene. All those hours together could be a blessing and a curse because the second she lays eyes on him, Serena knows she could fall again. But as they say, every rose has its thorn. Serena is blindsided when she agrees to try again with Jensen and then finds out he is engaged to be married.

Devastated, Serena is once again on the run. This time, it's her family who centers her and reminds her that love has many faces. A late-night house fire and a little dog bring her face-to-face with hunky firefighter Vince Rossetti, a divorcee with a great sense of humor and a huge heart who cooks. As Serena falls under VInce's charms, Jensen returns vowing to make things work.

Pulled between both men, Serena must choose the past or the future.

I love this author's work and I loved this book. Although not her usual topic after all it is m/f not m/m she has exceeded all expectations. I laughed though sections while at other times was yelling at Serena not to go there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Read 14 December 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
A Beat In Time is the first M/F book that Sandrine Gasq-Dion has written, and..... What can I say other than she did an amazing job as usual. If you are not a reader of the M/F genre please Do Not let this book deter you, it is a very realistic story and focuses on two individuals and what life's journey has in store for them.

This book is a story of a first love and heartache and second chance love but will it work out? Is it meant to be? You will have to read this amazing story to find out "inserts evil laugh here"

The prologue explains how Serena and Jensen meet.

In the opening of this book we get a glimpse of Serena fifteen years later she has become a very successful author living in NYC but will be relocating back to her home town of Arizona and this is where the story picks up when Serena meets Jensen the one boy that she has been unable to forget all these years later.

Serena and Jensen begin to see more of each other and feelings that she has tried to suppress surface, but she is faced with a shocking discovery that her second chance love is now engaged.

Torn once again Serena has so much to think about but she begins to realize that her Jenson is not the boy she was once so in love with.

Times Change
People Change

We meet Vince (omg hot firefighter drool worthy) can you say I'm #TeamVince "wink"
Who is friends with Serena's brother in law and newly divorced.

Watching Serena and Vince get to know each other was such a beautiful journey, Vince is the full package sexy, understanding, and he can cook lol.

Serena has to decide between Jenson (her first love) and Vince and which path she will continue on.

This was such a beautiful story written brilliantly so please if this is not the genre you normally read I will say it again
"Give this Book a try" you will not be disappointed.

Serena had her heart broken in high school by her boyfriend Jensen and has never really gotten over it. It's 15 years later and she is a gay romance author. She doesn't like to do m/f stories because she is still bitter over Jensen. Her publishing company wants her to do a m/f story and she heads to Arizona to be closer to her family. She researches her stories a lot and they want get to do a rock star theme. Her publisher sets her up with drum and guitar lessons for research. Her drum instructor turns out to be Jensen her high school sweetheart. He was a drummer when they dated and he is now in a band doing very well. Old feeling a are resurfacing again even though she is not wanting them to. Her sister and brother in law are also trying to set her up with a hot fireman. He has to miss the date and Jensen is also hovering around wanting to reconnect. Read the story and see if Vince the hot fireman can sneak in and win her heart or if Jensen will glue it back together.

Wow... just wow... this book is Sandrine Gasq Dion at her best. I've just read it in one sitting and loved every page of it. Serena Devane is a RIOT!!! I don't know how much of her is the writer, but it doesn't really matter. She is a fun, witty, amazing character! The whole story is very well written, it's full of fun banter, great secondary characters. I laughed out loud many times, snickering some more... This was my first M/F book in a decade, but thought it was Sandrine so I'd give it a go... What a ride!!! So completely worth it!!! We all need a Vince in our lives!!! Highly recommended!!!

This is my first book by this author. I read it in one sitting as I couldn't put it down. I read in the reviews prior to my purchase that this author usually writes m/m books. I really love m/m books so am anxious to check them out. Happy to have a hea ending but I didn't think that was who she would choose. Great love story. Read it!!

This is a fun, entertaining and funny read. But I expect nothing less from this author. This story is about learning to come to terms with first loves. And realizing that maybe you are not still in love but just remembering your past relationship. And just maybe you are really ready for that lifetime relationship. Enjoy I did.
