Mason has secrets from about that night 2 years ago. Sidney was thrown from the music industry because of that night. But can they work together again??? There is as lust that is always there but both need to work through issues of their own as well as trust issues for this story to have a happy ending. Will they achieve this happy ending??? And Sean wow I can't wait to read this hunks story. Would I recommend this book YES
I have just read this after reading the first 2 Reckless Beat books some time ago. I really enjoyed this emotional ride. Sid and Mason are deep, broken characters who are just meant to be. The suspense kept me turning pages. I have to get the rest of this series.
Wow! Mason and Sidney’s story surprised me to the very end. This couple found a connection from the very beginning but Mason allowed his crazy rock star status to dominate his world and he didn’t really work for a relationship with Sidney. When one crazy night with Mason, Sean and Sidney goes viral, Sidney’s world is turned upside down. I was shocked at how much she lost in this one moment and admired her resiliency though she never felt like she was very strong. To me she was, she kept putting one foot forward no matter how hurt and devastated she truly was. On the verge of losing everything, she agrees to work with Mason to write songs for Reckless Beat’s next album, seeing no other work opportunities. The challenge is that she has always loved Mason but he crushed her, how does she keep these emotions in check? Mason has distanced himself after the scandal, he was blown away that everyone assumed he did it. He has lost his muse and doesn’t want to write anymore songs. When Sidney comes back into his universe, his muse returns. Will he finally admit that he does love her? Then outside forces threaten Sidney. Will this be the nail in the coffin that keeps them apart? Or will these two hurt souls find a way to overcome all the challenges and embrace love? I never knew what to expect next. I kind of hated Mason going into this book but boy, was I wrong. There is so much more going on with him and I appreciated taking this journey to peel back all of his layers.
Undesired Lust is the third stunning book in Eden Summers sizzling Reckless Beat series and this time focuses around lead singer and front man Mason and the muse he never quite forgot….
Two years ago promising songwriter and singer Sidney Higgin’s whole world came crashing down when she spent a night with Reckless Beat members Mason Lynch and Sean Taiden and video footage of their intimate celebrations were made public. Thrown from the music industry, Sidney was left shunned and alone, but has spent years trying to move on from the betrayal at the hands of the person she most cared about. Mason Lynch has spent two years shouldering the blame for a situation that wasn't entirely his fault. In one horrible moment he lost the woman he was coming to care about and his relationship with his best friend has never been the same since. Growing bitter and embracing the arrogance and attitude he's known for Mason had kept the secret about what really happened all to himself. But with his inspiration lacking and Reckless Beat suffering, can Mason convince Sidney to collaborate with him again and will the truth finally come out, allowing both Mason and Sidney to acknowledge the chemistry that burns between them even after so much hate and betrayal?
Wow! What another great Reckless Beat novel! Is Eden Summers capable of writing a less than stellar romance? It wouldn't appear so, as she continues to thrill and satisfy fans with another deliciously sexy tales in the form of Undesired Lust.
Told through the eyes of Reckless Beat front man Mason and Sidney Higgins, his long standing infatuation and a woman scorned, Undesired Lust is a very sexy read. Summers continues to write some incredibly electric dialogue and snappy one liners as well as a complex and at times emotional romance that is shrouded in history and brimming with passion.
I really enjoyed getting to know both Mason and Sidney. They've got a lot of history and Eden Summers explores them really well in this book. I loved getting to know the true Mason and see that even though he certainly knows how to act the ass, he truly is a good guy who is very capable of caring and loving those in his life.
My heart really felt for Sean in Undesired Lust. The threesome between he, Mason and Sidney was pretty damn sexy but the implications it had on their lives and relationships with each other was undeniable. Though Mason and Sidney begin to rebuild their lives together in this book, Sean is still reeling in a lot of ways and left broken hearted. I'm super excited to read his story next and see him finally find his own lady love and happily ever after.
Another fabulous story with a killer romance, sizzling chemistry and addictive storyline, Undesired Lust is another brilliant Reckless Beat tale!
Undesired Lust hooked me quickly and kept me on the edge of my seat. I COULD NOT put the book down because I had become so invested in the characters. I stayed up reading until 4:30am. The plot was THAT suspenseful, riveting, and intense!
The characters were complex and interesting, both of them carrying baggage from their past together. I liked that their relationship was passionate but not just a bunch of bedroom scenes strung together.
This was the first book I've read by Eden Summers, and I have to say it was outstanding! I will definitely be looking for the rest of this series. Eden Summers has a new (albeit exhausted) fan!
I reviewed this book on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium book blog.
4.25 stars--UNDESIRED LUST is the third full length installment in Eden Summers’s adult, contemporary Reckless Beat rock musician, romance series focusing on the member of Reckless Beat. This is singer/songwriter Mason Lynch and songstress Sidney Higgins’s storyline-a second chance romance for two people torn apart by a mistake, pride and betrayal. UNDESIRED LUST can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. All of the band members and some of the previous storyline characters make cameo appearances including drummer Sean Taiden whose secondary role is much larger than most.
Told from third person point of view UNDESIRED LUST focuses on the fall-out and destruction of a friendship when an erotic sex tape goes viral. Sidney was a willing participant in the three way between the man with whom she had fallen in love (Mason) and his best friend Sean-but she was worried about the possibility that the recording would go public. In the ensuing two to three years Sidney’s life would be destroyed; her business in ruins; and disowned by her family and friends when the video paints her a whore and a slut. Mason’s betrayal was more than a slap in the face-it ripped out her heart and ruined her faith in mankind. When an opportunity presents itself to work, once again, with Mason Lynch, Sidney is torn between her hatred for the man she used to love and her need for vindication and money to survive.
The relationship between Mason and Sidney is volatile but their sexual chemistry and attraction is intense; provocative and undeniable. Sidney cannot forgive or forget Mason for the perceived act of betrayal. Sidney’s personal and professional life still lay in ruins but she continues to believe Mason’s life went forward as though nothing went wrong. It is only when the truth is finally revealed does Sidney realize that someone else may be responsible for the destruction in their lives. Threatening letters, emails and texts will send Sidney running for the comfort of home but not before a declaration of love is made by both.
The world building continues to focus on the members of Reckless Beat but Undesired Lust focuses primarily on the relationship between Mason, Sidney and Sean. Sean’s relationship with Mason is also affected when he realizes that he too has been in the dark about the truth. All three will need the support and comfort of each other and the band, when someone else is determined to destroy Sidney’s life-one band member at a time. Mystery and suspense are woven throughout the story when Sidney’s life is threatened because of the rebuilding friendship with Mason and Sean
UNDESIRED LUST is a fantastic addition to Eden Summers’s Reckless Beat. There are moments of heartbreak (wipes a tear), seduction and passion. The destructive nature of jealousy and pride is central to the storyline premise with a startling revelation that will destroy another friendship, in the end. Eden Summers writes a sensual series where love can be addicting, compelling and destructive but in the end, it is true love that wins out every time.
