LICK (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott
Published; November 21st 2013, Pan Macmillan
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.
LICK is another book that *M* has been telling me about now for FAR too long! And in the spirit of trying new authors, I could put it off no longer. Let me tell you, I devoured this book in an AFTERNOON! This should give you an indication of two things…first, what a quick/easy read this it (which is no way me slating the book!) and secondly, how addictive the story is! I’m sure we’ve all had fantasies of what would happen if we were in Evelyn’s shoes! (FYI…Corey Taylor or Dave Grohl!)
This is the first book in the Stage Dive series and it starts with a bang! Evelyn wakes up in her hotel room after a few too many tequilas celebrating her 21st birthday to discover she has married the guitarist of one of the biggest bands in the world! Realising that she can’t remember any of it, conversations are had as to whether the marriage would continue.
What follows is a ‘will they/won’t they’ story as each of them are trying to work out what to do next. Evelyn is thrown straight into David’s world and it’s overwhelming to say the least! Although she is only 21, Evelyn carries herself well and isn’t portrayed as some meek, mild and naive young woman. She carries herself well and compliments David very well.
Despite his status, David isn’t an arrogant rocker. He is actually a very sweet person, who knows what he wants, but asks permission rather than demanding it! He’s not all sweetness all the time. There are moments where you want to wag a finger in his face and give him a stern talking to – but he already knows the next step and is walking it before we can catch up.
LICK was a great introduction to the series and I’m keen to meet the remaining members of the band throughout the series!
