Fractured Beat by R.B. Hilliard a phenomenal five-star read. This is the first book in the Meltdown series, and what a book. Meltdown are a fabulous band, I only wish they were real (I so want to be a meltie). I also loved how we got a small glimpse into the MMG series, if only for a tiny moment.
Grant Erwin Hardy is the child of Melba and Erwin Hardy and they have a marriage that has always been something Grant looks up to and aspires to, even if he does like to sleep with random groupies a lot of the time, but he has no plans to settle down yet. He’s still enjoying the party. That is until he falls of the stage as the band are coming on stage to perform to a pact crowd.
Grant wakes up in the hospital and is told he will be going to rehab, as he overdosed on Oxy, the management are covering it up in the press as a bad case of flu. A couple of weeks and he will be better. When the rehab suggests he stays longer and the label don’t want to cancel any more dates they decide to hire a in house councillor, who will keep Grant sober and drug free. The councillor hired is Mallory Scott who has her own dark past, back when she used to be Mallory Stephens.
Will Mallory be able to help Grant? As Grant isn’t an addict, how could a drug counsellor help? This is such a gripping story, you can’t out it down. I am now desperately waiting the second book in the series.

After reading the first 4 books in the mmg series this author has quickly become one of my absolute favourites.
The writing is simple, the characters are amazing and the story's seem so real.
Grant and Mallory come together for business but they soon become more than friends. This book is not just about these two characters, there's so much going on around them that it makes you keep turning the pages. It's a love story with many twists and turns. I absolutely can't wait for the next book.

I loved this book!
It's very well written and has a great story. Not only are you treated to a really good love story but there's a real mystery to it too! There are plots within plots that kept me hooked right until the very last page and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book!

Grant Hardy, Meltdowns lead singer falls from the stage in a drunken and drug induced stupor. Even though he persistently denies being and addict and profess’s that he had been spiked the record label forces him in to a rehab facilty. On returning to the fractured band, Grant finds himself in another horrendous situation. It seems None of his band have trust in him or believe his story and to top it off he also has to endure an in house counselor living with the band 24/7 on this last leg of the tour. It doesn’t take long for Mallory Scott to work out that Grant is actually telling the truth. But even worse than that, it also doesn’t take her long to realise that somethings that are occuring just do not add up, especially the onslaught of her feelings towards this man.

I really loved these two characters, the chemistry between them was leaping off the pages, their banter was enthralling and the shenanigans going on around them were never ending. So why just three stars?

I had a lot of difficulty rating this book. Mostly because underneath it all i felt there was a really good story, but i found reading it and staying connected pretty difficult. This book is told in alternating pov’s, which I normally like. Unfortunately for me in this instance it just didn’t work for me. With so much going on in the book i really just wanted it to keep moving ahead, anxious for what was to come next. But after reading a chapter, it took me back again to re read the same chapter in the other person’s pov. IF only it had been done in both pov’s but with each moving forward, i wouldn’t have felt like the story kept being fractured and giving me difficulty to stay connected with both the story and the characters.

Wendy Hodges's review

it was amazing

Read from November 11 to 12, 2016

Gifted copy for an honest review.
There is a lot to this story, not just Grant and the band but also Mallery and how she ended up being a counsellor. I must say I had a whole mixture of feelings reading this, outrage, anger and puzzlement at the rest of the band members for not once believing or supporting Grant when he was taken ill. Sadness for Grant himself for what happened, pride in him for how he handles it all. Disgust for the so called management team and love for the Hank and the other security guys who do believe in him, support and help him get answers.
Mallery, I don't think she had much of the right support when she was not only training but when she had her accident. No wonder she had so many problems and her behaviour wasn't the best at the time. She turned it all around though all on her own and tried to do better herself and help others. Meeting and getting to know Grant and the others, getting very little information on what happened to him, her training tells her there is so much wrong with it all.
With a few twists keeping you guessing almost all the way through as to the whole truth I got sucked in and tried to figure it out myself, I must say the author did a fantastic job and it wasn't who I thought at first, though I did suss it out near the end before I got the answer. Boy! it is a bit of a shock as well, not just for the reader either.
Great story, I love those that make me use my mind to try and work out the truth even while the characters are doing the same and I will be checking to see if there are other books in this series.
