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 j

He's recording new stuff for the first time in years thanks to Eveyn's inspiration, and his friend tells him to "play that lick again". The moment is symbolic of his relationship with Evelyn. She doesn't remember meeting David or getting married and so they have to start over again.(less)

"So congratulations. You're married to a rock star."

I'd been wishing for a new rock star book and this one hit the spot and rocked my world!!

Lick is an addictive blend of heart-warming passion and light-hearted fun. It's a story you can lose yourself in. The perfect rock star romance! 5 stars!

This book had one of the all-time best beginnings ever. I challenge anyone to try and stop reading after the first page!

Things I’ve learnt from new-adult Bad Boys (BB)

1.BB never wears underwear under sexy jeans.

2. Only medium to zero confidence can attract a BB.

3. If you are a virgin, or almost, your chances to catch the eye of a BB, triple.

4. After some ruff patches, the BB is no longer a BB, but a SLP (sweet little poodle).

5. You will definitely hit it off with the best friend, who is a BB too, who will also become a SLP, probably in the next book.

6. The BB's bitchy-(but-sexier-than-you)-ex-girlfriend will

4 to 4 1/2–I'm glad I gave this book a second chance–Stars

After my first failed attempt to read this book–explained in my original review below–I knew it would be a good idea to put it aside for awhile before giving it another try. Boy, am I glad I decided to give it another go. I loved this book! I loved the characters, the plot, and the love story. I ended this book with a huge smile on my face.

I'm not sure what to say about this book. I didn't hate it, but didn't love it either. Since there were more things that I disliked than I liked, two stars is more than fair.

-WARNING SPOILERS-

The story had a solid beginning. After I read the first chapter I was very exited. I was sure it will be at least a 4 star read.
Ev wakes up one morning, in a hotel room in Vegas, with the biggest hangover of her life, a wedding ring on her finger and a tattoo with a name "David" on her ass, with no memory

This was such a fun and sweet book! A really enjoyable read!

Going out for her 21st birthday, Evelyn wants to get a little wild, have a little fun. So she goes to Vegas with her best friend. The last thing she remembers is taking shots after midnight... the next morning she wakes up with a ring on her finger and a tattoo on her ass. And she can't remember a damn thing.

Ok I’m going to try something completely different here.
Sometimes books remind you of certain songs, whether it be that a song is mentioned in the book I.e Angel in This Man. Mr Brightside in The Mighty Storm
Or sometimes things happen, emotions are explained and you think of certain songs…

I thought of a lot of songs while reading this…
So If this book was a musical I think it would go something like this…

Lick (Stage Dive 1) was such a refreshingly done rockstar book. I haven’t read anything by this author but will be checking out her books because I really LOVED Kylie Scott’s writing style!

Kylie Scott can write inner dialogue like no one’s business. I laughed and smiled at how completely hilarious and clever she writes her characters, they seemed so real. To say I enjoy this breath of fresh air would be putting mildly!

Eeeeeeee. Love love love it. Soooo perfect. And adorable. And hot. And brilliant.

A fantastic rock star romance. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right??? Wrong!



When you accidently get married to one of the biggest rock stars on the planet, the ring, the paparazzi, the legal papers and the hubby himself are all still there, even after you leave Vegas... even if you have absolutely no recollection of the whole thing!

“Rough sex doesn’t fix everything. Sometimes you actually have to talk.”

As much as possible, I try to push myself as a reader, to read beyond comfort zones, expand horizons and challenge my imagination. I've yet to scratch the surface of these wonderful worlds, yet to have read and quoted every heart-wrenching dialogue crafted especially to gut me every imaginable way...

But sometimes, I just want to read some smut.

3. You have no memories of what happened previous night

I really enjoyed this opening book of the Stage Dive series from Kylie Scott – it’s charming, funny and deeply romantic full of well-rounded characters and a dynamic plot to keep you engaged right through to the very end.

Turns out, the old expression ‘What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ probably doesn’t apply if an Elvis impersonator is somehow involved.
