Lick by Kylie Scott
Series: Stage Dive #1
Release Date: July 1, 2013
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.
Review [possible spoilers]:
After reading Deep, the last book in Stage Dive Series, I knew I had to go back and read the previous books. I was really curious about David and Ev’s story but I was betting that my favorite book would be Play because of Mal, who became my favorite band member in Deep. Well, even though I haven’t finished Play yet (yes, I’m already reading it), I can say that I really don’t think that’s possible now because I totally loved Lick and David is my newest book boyfriend!
The story starts in the bathroom of an hotel in Las Vegas, Ev wakes up with a killer hangover, a hot and half naked tattooed guy, a huge ring on her finger and no memories of the night before. David, the hot guy in the bathroom with her, can’t believe she doesn’t remember their night and that they got married. Pretty hard on a rockstar ego, right?
“Let me get this straight, you don’t remember anything?”
“No,” I said, swallowing hard. “What did we do last night?”
“We got fucking married.” he growled.
I fell hard for David, it’s impossible not to because even though he was tough to read in the beginning, he definitely didn’t have many flaws. But his trust issues, which are totally understandable, are also hard to overcome. He was hurt that Ev didn’t remember anything from their night together, while Ev was trying to wrap her mind around waking up married to a total stranger. The first moments of the book were hilarious and I laughed a lot through the story (Mal, Stage Dive’s drummer, delivered plenty of funny moments). David and EV’s relationship was hot (sizzling chemistry!), sweet and realistic because they had to work through their problems. They really made sense together. I love their story and I am definitely recommending Stage Dive Series to all Romance readers.
