Lauren Robbins is the one that got away. Lured by the promise of fame, Nick Blackthorne turned his back on the possibility of a regular life and love to focus on his career. But years down the line, still unable to erase Lauren from his heart, Nick realizes he needs to find her, even if all she’ll accept from him is an apology for walking out all those years ago.

No one would ever guess kindergarten teacher Lauren Robbins was once involved with the lead singer of a rock band. Their romance was the stuff of love songs, and it took her fifteen years to get over him.

When Nick turns up at her door, the heartbreak and years fall away, but not everything can be erased with apologies and soul-shattering passion.

"Until this afternoon, Lauren had said all of about ten words about you."
Nick's heart did a rapid little thud at the idea of Lauren talking about him. "What were those ten words?"
"I went out with Nick Blackthorne once. Stupidest thing I've ever done."
Dull disappointment dropped into his gut. "Tha

Firstly how could i not love a story based in my adopted country; Australia? Added to the fact that when we first meet Nick, he's in Melbourne, walking Collins Street... HELLO... walk that street almost every other day...(yet to meet a Nick Bl ...more

By MBR April 17, 2012

Love’s Rhythm by Lexxie Couper is loosely tied to the story Tropical Sin Lexxie Couper that was published as part of The Bandicoot Cove anthology. Since I am not someone who enjoys menage stories, I refrained from reading Tropical Sin and I believe that Love’s Rhythm stands perfectly well as a stand ...more

By Jenny - TotallybookedBlog April 26, 2012

I made the mistake of saying to someone in the first 10% of this book "not sure if I'm going to get into this". How wrong was I! I stayed up 'til 1am finishing it. I couldn't put it down.

I loved it!

Nick....what can I say. I am going to steal these lines from Stacia's review (hope you don't mind - t ...more

I know I sound like a broken record when it comes to Lexxie Couper, but sorry I have to say it again......LOVED this book.

We met rock star Nick Blackthorne in Tropical Sin and he is still dealing with things that have happen to him over the last two years. And deal ...more

By Leea May 09, 2012

God, he missed doing the dishes. How surreal was that? He missed talking to Lauren about her day as he wiped the suds off their freshly washed plates.

Love’s Rhythm is sweet, short and filled with breathless moments of love. I was going to say passion and that’s also true but unlike some contempo ...more

4.5 stars

*Love’s Rhythm is a re-release from Lexxie Couper and Entangled Publishing; it has been modified slightly from the original story.

From the minute Nick Blackthorne walked on the page in Tropical Sin, I was intrigued and as bits and pieces of his story unfolded I knew one thing, I HAD to know ...more

By ~ Becs ~ June 05, 2012

Wow. This was just a fluffy bit of sugary goodness. I think it’s marketed as contemporary romance but it borders on erotic romance as there is a whole lotta lovin going on!

Nick and Lauren were a couple very much in love. He was on the verge of rock greatness and Lauren didn’t want the life that went ...more

By Ann March 14, 2013

4.5 Stars. Loved it, loved it, sweet, HOT, sexy story. Whoa, that Nick!!! Just the kissing scenes had me all hot and bothered. So much better than Muscle for Hire which I started first before I backed into Love’s Rhythm. Pretty sure I’ll be re-reading this one. ...more

By Heather in FL April 20, 2012

What a sweet story of reunited love. I also loved the tie-in with other books... mention of the couple from Tropical Sin and then Nick's manager is from Suck and Blow. I think I loved that while Nick wanted to bust in and just take Lauren back, but once he realizes how reticent she is and learns of ...more

Really, really good book

I wasn't sure what to expect, as this was the first book I'd read by Lexxie Couper. It may have been a shorter book than I prefer to read, but it was one with a story line that kept my attention. I read the whole thing in one sitting.

I liked the interaction between the charac ...more

By Kelly 'Perusing Princesses blog' November 07, 2012

Regardless of my 3.5 stars, I did enjoy this short novel. So why the mediocre rating? Well, it was the pace. Oh baby, it was just so erratic. I appreciate that it's a shorter novel and so things need to get moving but it was just too rapid, therefore completely unbelievable. However, Nick Blackthorn ...more

Short, hot, sexy and emotional read.

The story's good. It's always nice to read about two people getting back together. Maybe this one's a little bit too fast for my taste but it's still good. I hated Lauren for a while but I understood her point of view. Nick was very famous and she didn't wanna get ...more

By Holly May 07, 2012

This was a sweet short story about a Rockstar and his lost love. Nick Blackthorne is the worlds biggest rockstar and the fame and groupies just aren't working for him anymore. Nick starts to realize that he may have let go of the one real thing in his life fifteen years ago, so he heads out to find ...more

By Summer April 24, 2012

I really enjoyed this book. It was funny how in the beginning of the book I kept thinking this story would be great if..., then that if actually happens. I really enjoy this type of plot in a story. I only wish there had been a prologue at the end where they attend the wedding. Now I am going to hav ...more

Me gustaron mucho los personajes y el desarrollo de la trama, pero lo que ame fueron las canciones!! ...more

By Ayekah May 25, 2017

Great story and would have been even better with less sex between Nick and Lauren. Not that I object to it, but these two who really needed to get it together didn't have a conversation. It was all sex. Couple of sit downs may have resolved some of the conflict and how to deal with her son. But nope ...more

By Christi April 23, 2012

My Review:

Warning: my review has a slight spoiler, but it's something that's revealed fairly early on in the book, so I thought it was okay to talk about that aspect of the story.

Aw, I really loved this story. Who knew that Nick had such a wonderful (i.e. heartbreaking) backstory? Before he became t ...more

By Autumn Review March 20, 2013

I'll just go ahead and say that anytime I see "Rock Star" in a book description, I pretty much say yes. Rockers are sexy, mysterious, a bit dangerous, and sometimes untouchable. So, I get excited when a woman can change him, tame him, and claim him. Love's Rhythm was a good story about a lost relati ...more

By Katya April 17, 2012

4.0 Stars!

I just love a smooth talking, sexy, does all the right moves, man who broke your heart. How does he do it? show up after fifteen years and just like that, he is irresistible. You can't keep your hands or mouth off of him. And he is better than ever....It is so easy to forget the hurt, so d ...more

By Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ February 12, 2013

A friend recommended this book to me and want to thank T'irla for sharing this amazing book with me. That being said I love books about music, the creative process, and dancing!!! This book grips your heart from first page to the last page. It's what I call a page turner. Nick Blackthorne is a mega ...more

By Cece July 15, 2013

I read this book for 2 reasons, 1. I wanted to try out a Lexxie Couper book and 2. I freakin' love the cover....
ok there are really 3 reasons..3. It's about a rock star!

This is about Nick - a super rock star looking for redemption...he pretty much dumped the love of his life 15years ago and now wan ...more

By Tabatha May 09, 2012

How could I not give this one 5 stars! I'd give it 10 if it were an option! I loved this continuation of the story with Nick from the Bandicoot Cove series. I honestly can't say enough how much I adore Nick and Lauren.

Nick has paid the ultimate price for his fame and fortune, because due to it he h ...more

By Kassi September 14, 2012

Ok...I was having a rock star withdraw and found this book through goodreads' discussion board. Wow...cannot be happier that I stumbled on it. This book was super sweet and quick easy read. Love love love the ending! The characters, the plot, the sex *fanning self* was joyful to read.

One thing I ...more

By Sofia April 28, 2015

I love rock star books. The whole bad boy rocker trope pushes so many buttons for me... and this one delivered beautifully.

Nick Blackthorne made a great rocker, and watching him romancing his first love, Lauren, was sweet. It was also hot and sexy, which to me are mandatory for rock star books * gri ...more

About the author

Lexxie Couper

Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once. When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever. Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It’s the best of both worlds – old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly. Lexxie lives by two simple rules – measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she’s laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure.
