RATING: 4 Stars!
Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins' ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn't looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.
Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She's his best friend's little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible...but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

Amazing Conclusion to an AWESOME Series!
I can’t believe this is the last book in this awesome series. I have been in love with Stage Dive since we first met them in Lick, which is still my favorite book out of all of them. I can’t help it. David is just too yummy for words. In this book, we get Ben’s story and though I hadn’t really gotten to know Ben much in the previous books, I did know that there was going to have to be some deep soul searching for me to find him interesting. The author gives us that and more. I enjoyed this story and I really enjoyed the heroine, Lizzy. Recurring were of course David, though we don’t see enough of him to suit me... hello, he’s my favorite, lol... Jimmy, again, not a whole lot of him but enough to give us a wonderful insight into his HEA and of course Mal, who just tickles me in every way possible.
I’m saddened to see this series come to an end but rest assured, everyone leaves on a beautiful and brilliant note and I can imagine those boys living it up in the land of “Happy” for the rest of their days.
Ben was just as I envisioned him. All taciturn, distant, brooding and intense. His character was hard to get a read on sometimes and this is one character I wish we had a POV for... okay, well I wish for David’s POV too but this story wasn’t about him, so lets me refocus. There were plenty of times I wondered just what Ben was thinking, how he could do some of the things he did and I think I might have understood him better if I could have wiggled around inside his mind a little. I didn’t always enjoy his hesitancy but I certainly understood it. It was a huge step in a direction he wasn’t sure he ever wanted to travel and though I wished he’d been more open in the beginning, I totally LOVED the reluctant, slow build to something wonderful between him and Lizzy.
So Lizzy steps onto the canvas and her turn on the wild side leaves her knocked up with a rock star baby. I loved her from the beginning. She had an inner light that just shined and it was fun watching her sort through her varying emotions while trying to figure out what to do. She was absolutely delightful in her upbeat attitude and her strength and desire to command her situation. She made this angsty read fun and gave the shadowed, heartbreaking areas some much needed light.
And then there’s Mal. That man is beautiful in every way and he breathed fresh air into this story.. sometimes stealing the show completely. But that’s what Mal does. He’s epic in his character and you can’t help but love him. He stepped in and set things in motion that allowed Ben and Lizzy to find their way. He always seems to know what needs to be said to get the right reaction. I heart Mal almost as much as I do David. :D
The Wrap Up:
Overall, this wasn’t my favorite book out of the series but it was definitely a wonderful read. It gave the whole series closure and I absolutely hate this is the last book. The Stage Dive series has been a beautiful, fun, sexy journey and I’m going to miss waiting for the next book but I’m thrilled everyone gets their HEA.
David, I still heart you so hard! ;)
