This book is all told from Jamie’s POV and we finally got to see the real man behind the make-up mask. Having learnt all about Jamie and Iris’ past and how they came to be in Kneel (the first book), Beg took me on an emotional journey that is Jamie and his relationships, not only with Iris but also with his parents. It helped me to understand how Jamie turned his issues and his past demons into the Dash persona of being a douche and letting alcohol mask his pain. The wall he put up so high took a lot of soul searching and emotion to push down. So having known Dash as a selfish and arrogant rock god it was a flip of the coin to learn all about the real Jamie. With time out from the limelight and guidance from Will, he was able to work through his monstrous issues and his guilt about Iris.
The romance element was low key (although there were a couple of hot intense scenes thrown in which made up for it) but it didn’t really bother me as this was more of an emotional read with plenty of depth that had me crying. Absolutely crying my heart out. The writing was so special and gripped me hard, it was a heart wrenching story that made me warm so much more to Jamie.
There was a whole lot of pain and angst to work through for Jamie to get his longed for redemption. I loved the scenes with his father and how their relationship grew. The scene where he is on stage and said ‘My boy’ had me reaching for the tissues (again!). However it was the calls to Iris (especially the final one) and the way he opened up to her that had me swooning. As for the ending? Aww bliss. Absolute bliss. I have so loved this duet and I had a serious book hangover when it ended. I needed more ‘Florecita’ and ‘Mama’ talk. So darn sexy! Five stars.
Kneel was mostly told from Iris’ point of view, so it was refreshing to hear Beg told solely by Jamie. This book picks up pretty much where Kneel ended, so there’s no mass gap, there is a recap too, so you won’t be lost with what’s happened/happening.
In this book we see Jamie and Dash. That sounds strange when they are one of the same person. But Beg is about Jamie finding himself again, learning a few hard life lessons and realising what’s important and who he is/wants to be. I absolutely loved Wills! He is one guy I would love to have a drink or few with and chat too. But that aside, I loved how we mostly concentrated on learning more about Jamie and his family and him working through his own stuff.
I don’t want to talk about Iris too much as obviously Beg was about Jamie trying to win her back after the video at the concert. I will say that I felt it would have worked better if the book had of been told in dual points of view, just in a couple of instances. Especially the last chapter (Not the epilogue at the end), I felt that came a little out of nowhere, like I’d missed something. It would have been good to have a little bit of an explanation.
Other than that, I think Beg tied up all the loose ends of Kneel, we got a beautiful HEA and of course more hot time with Jamie – after all who doesn’t want that? I felt the story had a great pace, I loved how Jamie grew into a better person in this book and still love Iris. So over all, I can’t fault Beg at all. I read this over 2 sittings and throughly enjoyed it. If you are a fan of New Adult romances, especially those in the music industry I feel God of Rock could be a couple of books ideal for you. They are available on kindle, reasonably priced and well worth a read! 4 stars.
5*s of revelation, re-evaluation and romance
This is the second book of the series, and you absolutely need to read Kneel to understand what is happening here. We were left on a terrible ending, with Jamie (as Dash) having shared a video in a concert, mirroring the nightmare at the beginning of Kneel. He really does need to air his grievances in private!
This book revolves around the fallout from his stupid act - his public life, his career, his private life, and his family - everything is in turmoil, and once again Jamie has fallen into the bottle, and trying to find where Iris has vanished. We find him finally emerging from his stupor, and working on what his future may contain. I really don't want to say anything, as it is revealed in such a perfect way, that I could give you the wrong steer. Let me assure you that it is dark, gritty, sad, moving, hopeful, and sad again! Love features, but not always as you might expect, but always with meaning.
This book does a wonderful job of closing the story, and of giving us the closure that we needed, even if not what we expected. Thank you Ms Butler.

I thoroughly enjoyed the POV of Jamie in this well-written sequel. In this story, we get to see more of Jamie’s personality and the demons that drive him to become Dash Justice, and how he rediscovers his true self and builds on the relationships that mean the most to him.
The side characters of Wills, Jamie’s mother and Iris are well written and all add purpose to Jamie’s story. The author was able to paint a picture with her words that allow the reader to see and feel each character fighting their demons and then relishing in their true feelings and relationships.
I couldn’t put it down and once finished I was left thinking about the characters and the journey they went on to rediscover their true selves. Definitely one to read.
