"The beat of love doesn’t always move every drummer in the same way..." is the opening sentence of the blurb, and it is an amazingly accurate description of the theme of this story about four rock stars. Most of us love to follow their often slightly crazy shenanigans, love affairs, and other craziness, and this story shows all of that in perfect detail, with a strong focus on the love and lust that blossoms between the members of two bands.

Johnny is in love with Frank, the drummer who joined his band after a "personal difference" with his ex-lover Dave. It takes them a whole year to actually fall into bed together, and Frank is awfully withdrawn afterward, but the lust and passion between them is obvious. Problem is, Johnny wants more, ideally a commitment, and Frank just doesn't seem to be sure yet.

Then things escalate. Johnny thinks Frank wants to get back with Dave. Dave's new lover, Tim, is angry about that and wants to make Dave and Frank jealous. Needless to say, the whole thing almost blows up in their faces when the whole emotional mess turns into a wild foursome. No, that may not have been necessary to figure things out, but it sure cleared the air between them!

If you like stories about slightly crazy, and insanely hot, rock stars, if you enjoy reading about the things four men might get up to together when all inhibitions have been removed thanks to some pot and a lot of alcohol, and if you’re looking for an entertaining read that is as hot as it is fun, you will probably like this short story.
