Keep the Beat: A Band-Com for Romance Geeks by Kata Čuić

 

Synopsis:

Sophia Reston has never been bothered by the term band geek. The definition of geek is an enthusiast or expert in a particular field or activity. She loves marching band with all her heart, so the term is appropriate. Of course, one of the lesser known definitions of a geek is a carnival performer who is often billed as a wild man and whose act typically includes biting the head off a live chicken or snake. This definition also seems accurate since there is one snake Sophia fantasizes about maiming in the most deliciously torturous ways—her archnemesis, James Fossoway.

He has a stupid nickname, stupidly attractive muscles, a reputation for sleeping around, and he is a fellow band geek. Unfortunately for Sophia, he’s also an enthusiast of pushing all her buttons—and not in a good way.

When their rivalry leads to one final showdown during the competition for head drum major, the entire band is invested in the outcome. And James has some new tricks up his sleeve to win the last battle they’ll ever wage against each other.

Because, after years of pranks, James isn’t out for revenge. He wants Sophia’s heart.

Or maybe it’s just another dumb challenge.

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “The Vanishing of Olivia Beck” by Sara L. Foust:

    “Olivia Beck pulled her gaze from the rearview mirror for the tenth time in as many minutes. She would not cry.”

  2. On my blog, I’m sharing the first line from Misunderstood Meg by Jo Grafford. Here, I will share the first line in chapter 24 of my current read, Dreams in Deadwood by Kari Trumbo. Jennie scanned the stack of gowns, towels, sheets, nightclothes, napkins, curtains, and other things laying on her side of the bed. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. I’m sharing the first line from The Englisch Daughter by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall on my blog. This book is FANTASTIC! I’m currently on chapter 17 so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Roy glanced at the clock on the wall of the social services’ private meeting room.”
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. I’m doing Before I Called You Mine by Nicole Deese. I’ll use the first line from Chapter 15:

    Like a grouping of cancerous cells, my family’s cynicism had slithered into my subconscious and infected my thoughts with their poison.
