Remmy has a habit of falling for straight guys and, with Brad around, it seems it’s a habit he’s not breaking anytime soon.  He knows the only way things are going to change is if he leaves the job he loves and makes a fresh start.  Planning on leaving his job with Conquest to go to school is a big step, but walking away from Brad may be the hardest thing he has ever done.  But Brad has other ideas and Remmy wonders how long the drummer will be sticky around.

Feeling the Rhythm is the newest addition to the Conquest series.  This newest addition tells the story of Remmy and Brad, both characters that fans of this series have run into before.  Remmy manages the band’s roadies, making sure each concert venue is set up the way the band likes it.  He loves his job but has been on the road with one band or the other since graduating high school.  Remmy is an easy character to like, he is shy and easy going around those he is unsure of, while at the same time very tough when he needs to be.  The way he cares about those around him is just what Brad needs to help him through the changes in his life.  

Brad is Conquest’s drummer and the last single member in the band.  While I wondered a little about Brad in the beginning of this story, watching him change as he accepted himself and his feelings for Remmy made this story a great read.  The two men have a wonderful connection that flows smoothly as they become lovers and it feels as if they have always been together as a couple.  This does not mean that everything runs smoothly for them.  Brad’s past plays heavily into the story and I felt for the young man he was and the wrong done to him. 

Feeling the Rhythm is peppered with wonderful secondary characters, all fans of this series will know from previous stories.  The guys are not only there to lend Brad and Remmy moral support as they start their new relationship, but also to help the two men out when Brad’s past comes back to haunt him. 

I love how the author wraps up the story lines surrounding Brad.  The closure she brings him felt realistic and just what the main characters needed.  Feeling the Rhythm is not to be missed and while each story in this book can be read as a stand-alone, I would recommend reading each book in order, to get the full impact of the series.
