Lick (Stage Dive # 1) by Kylie Scott Review:

Goodreads Book Blurb:
Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.





Genre - New Adult/Contemporary Romance


5 Rockin’ Stars Baby!
Sweet, Smokin’ Hot and Full of Fun!


The Rundown:
Going to Vegas and waking up hitched wasn’t the plan. All Evelyn was secretly looking for was a one night stand to get her out of her four year long rut. But waking up to the mother of all hangovers, an over-the-top rock on her hand, a butt tattoo and loss of memory wasn’t quite what she had in mind.

Quote Spotlight... 
Everything I heard about Vegas was true. Bad things happened here, terrible things. I just wanted to crawl into a ball and die. Sweet baby Jesus, what had I been thinking to drink so much?

David wasn't looking for anything but when a furious Ev stumbles in his path to protect an innocent bystander, her guts and honesty pull at something inside him he thought long gone and suddenly, he’s excited about something real, something that matters, something normal... and he found her. Too bad she has no memory of who he is.

The Review:
I got my Groove Back Baby!! Yes I do!
I’ve been in a reading funk for a couple of days now. Nothing was grabbing me or ensnaring me in its reading trap. But on the first chapter of the first page of this read, I was HOOKED!

This Book? A-MAZE-ING!

Did this book make me happy? YES! Happy I tell you, HAA-PEEE!

It was all kinds of fun, it was intense and It. Was. SEXY! I want more books like this. I want to feel like this more often! I want to laugh, I want my heart to soar, my cheeks to burn.... I want to shed some tears damnit! I just want to FEEL some emotions when I'm reading and this book made me do just that.

I want some Topless Cuddles!
I want a song written about me!
I want one night in Vegas to turn into forever!

Well, deprived of all that actually happening, I’ll take Lick and all its yummy goodness!

Quote Spotlight... 
"You’ve exceeded all of my expectations. I wanted you to let you hair down a little. Get a life and give mankind another chance. But this is a whole new level of crazy you’ve ascended to. Do you really have a tattoo?”“Yes.”“Of his name?”I sighed and nodded.“Where, might I enquire?”I shut my eyes tight. “My left butt cheek.”Lauren lost it, laughing so hard that tears started streaming down her face.Perfect...

Character...
David - Scorchin' Hot! Wow. That man set my loins on fire and left me burning. A rock star who plays guitar, has long hair and seriously lickable tats? Yep. WANT. HIM. BAD!

Quote Spotlight... 
He held his hand to my heart again and bumped the tip of his nose against mine. “Can you feel what we’re doing here? We’re building something.”“Yes.” I could feel it, the connection between us, the overwhelming need to be with him.

Ev - Loved her. She was real and solid and she had compassion, strength and heart.

Bro and Bestie - Loved Nate finally stepped to the plate to take care of his lil’ sis! About time and Lauren was a hoot.

The Divers - Mel was so much charming fun it should be illegal. His bromance with David kept me in giggles and happy faces. Jimmy was skeevy but he was messed up. A clean Jimmy makes me a happy reader. Lets hope it sticks. Ben kinda scared me. But I think he’s really a soft teddy bear in disguise of a menacing drummerboy.

Quote Spotlight... 
I fit my mouth to his, wanting more. Wanting it all. The wet of his mouth and the skill of his tongue. All of him. No one kissed like David. As though kissing me beat breathing, eating, sleeping or anything else he might have otherwise planned to do with the rest of his life.

I love happy endings but am I greedy for wanting the story to continue? Yes! Do I care? Nope.

Quote Spotlight... 
“Its you and me against the world.”

The Wrap Up:
Who is this author, Kylie Scott and where did she come from? I looked up her Goodreads page and apparently she likes to write about zombies! I'm all for some zombie action, especially if its written as well as this book, but please Ms. Scott, WRITE. MORE. STAGE. DIVE romance!!! Please!!! You’ll have a friend, fan, slave... whatever you want, in me forever!! I just want more of all that I just felt while reading Lick.

So, if your magic extends to granting reader wishes, please give me some more David and Ev! David was effing HOT and Ev? She was awesome! Oh and I’d love a story with sexy, fun Mel who never wants to get married... and eventually Jimmy, cuz that man has a story to tell for sure (but only once he stays clean and sober for a while) and maybe even Ben. He’s all big and hot and mysterious with a gruff exterior, so obviously he’s got a story to tell too! Yes, more Stage Dive please! I’ll be waiting patiently.. but not too patiently! *big grin*
