About the Author

Velvet Reed is the pen name of an avid book lover turned writer. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia; she is a city girl at heart but loves the laid back lifestyle of living in country New South Wales. Married to her first and only love, she is a devoted mother of three who juggles her very active children and their many extracurricular activities, working in the middle of the night and writing. Velvet's love of reading was realized after the death of her amazing father. She used the escape into the fictional world to help her through her grief and post natal depression, not releasing the great impact so many talented authors would have on her life.

I enjoyed the story, but thought the writing was kind of average. The characters just seemed immature and stiff to me. Also, I get that it's book 1, but it would be nice to know there was a MAJOR cliffhanger waiting for me. I like to wait until all books are available before reading these types because I read so many I will have forgotten Grace and Cole's story by the time the next in the series is published. I mistakenly thought it was a series of related but standalone stories. Frustrated....

Warning: This book ends on a cliffhanger, so if cliffhangers aren't you're thing, then please stop reading!! If you don't mind one, then carry on reading, I promise it will be well-worth your time!!

This is Velvet Reed's debut novel and what a debut novel it was!!! She most definitly has a bright, bright future if the books to come are like this and she certainly has a fan for life in me!!! The book grabbed me from the very first word, and i don't mean of the first chapter. Rather in the beautiful dedication to her father, which had the tears flowing even before I'd even started.

Rhythm of my heart took me on an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end and with every subsequent page I found myself drawn in further to the story, so much so that I was unable to put it down, unless i had to.
So I highly recommend finding some quite down time to read it because once you get going you wont be able to stop!!!!!

The story revolves around Grace, who is twenty five and alternates between helping run her family's business and looking after her niece who is deaf, and Cole who is a successful ER doctor. Both have been hurt by previous partners, yet they both yearn for that someone special to share their lives with.

A chance meeting in the emergency room starts this absolutely amazing journey between Grace and Cole that comes complete with twists and turns, drama and tears and just when you think they're finally going to get their HEA, the book comes to an abrupt halt with a BANG!!

The book will leave you laughing out loud.

It will have you shedding more then just a few tears, so keep tissues handy.

Where so I even start with The Rhythm of my Heart? I beta read for Velvet Reed so I got to see the whole journey, chapter by chapter and I've got to say it's been an amazing experience.
Gracie is strong, resilient, she's the kind of girl you want in your corner. She's had a rough trot but she's come out on the other side of it stronger, smarter and with a deep love for her family and friends.

Cole is dreamy, he's a doctor, he's amazing with kids, and has such a special relationship with his family. He's the kind of guy you take home to meet the parents, but don't let that fool you, he's hot as hell and sure knows how to turn up the heat.

The love and passion these two share, comes about organically, it grows, deepens, and it leaves you as the reader breathless.

Not only does Reed write one hell of a H and h - she creates the perfect complimentary supporting cast in Ash and Sam - the best friends, John, Olivia and April Cole's parents and sister, Bryan, Charlie, and Ruby - Grace's dad, brother and niece. And even Miranda the perfect villain (who I may have threatened bodily harm to a time or seven)

Rhythm isn't all sunshine and rainbows, it's real, it's life, both Grace and Cole have a past, this story is their present and I was so invested that I can't wait to read about their future.

For me, a mark of good author, isn't just writing a H and h you want to read about, it's writing a supporting cast that has you equally interested, invested, and Reed did this in spades. To think this is only her debut astounds me, leaving me breathless with what she'll do and where she'll go next. Congrats Velvet Reed on writing something that drew me in from the very first page and left me wanting more.

This book had me laughing so hard I actually snorted & crying like a baby all at the same time.

Grace Rivers gave up her high end career to move back and help out her brother Charlie and his deaf daughter Ruby.Grace knew that when her family needed her she would drop everything in a heartbeat. She now works at her dad's Auto Repair Shop and looks after her niece a few days a week.

An emergency rush to the ER has Grace meeting a hot sexy Doctor named Cole Tierney.

Do you believe in love at first sight?? I know I do.

Such emotions are played upon in this book and it takes you from a new beginning to a possible ending of a relationship. You will read explosive scenes and heart melting scenes.

Throw in some Lies, Bitter Ex's and a club with Open Mic night and you have a awesome debut novel.

Oh my God!!!!! I am still sobbing!!! Why would you do this to me Velvet Reed??? This book is such a beautiful story. It's about a girl who has been through tragedy in the past but has come through it all a better person. Grace Rivers is a really good person. She puts family first, ALWAYS. She's even given up a promising career for the sake of her family. Her heart cannot get any bigger. She takes it all in and goes with the flow. Her life is all of a sudden changed when she meets Dr. McSexy Pants (Dr. Cole Tierney). She meets him by sheer luck, or unluck, depending on how you look at the circumstances, and is immediately attracted to him. A few days later, Cole decides that he just has to have Gracie in his life and puts a plan in motion to catch her eye. With the help of Ashley, Grace's bestest friend forever, Cole succeeds in getting Grace to agree to a date. Grace has been hurt in the past, so she's a little leery of dating again. She's pretty content with her family (her dad, Charlie, and Ruby), but she gives him a chance anyways. Everything is going great, until the evil she-witch Miranda decides to show her face every chance she gets. Miranda is a "family friend" who would love nothing more than to have Cole to herself, so every time Grace turns around, Miranda is making rude remarks about her choice of career, her family, and even her clothing. I wanted to jump in the book and stab her in the eye with a spoon. But that's okay, Grace handles herself really well. I was so proud of her! Then, when Grace and Cole get the surprise of a lifetime, it couldn't have happened at a worse time. There are tears, yelling, and even a little blood shed. Just when things are getting back on track, everything goes to hell. Will they make it? Will everything be okay?Read more ›
