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...more

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

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!

“Love isn’t always smooth or straightforward. It can be messy and painful,” he said. “Doesn’t mean it isn’t still the most incredible thing that can ever happen to you.”


Lick by Kylie Scott is book one in her Stage Dive series. I went in knowing that there was a high likelihood that I would enjoy this book based on all the positive reviews out there. Boy, did I ever! This book was fantastic. Funny, heart-warming, sexy, romantic and packed full of sexy rockers with a penchant for meltin...more

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.

Love isn’t always smooth or straightforward. It can be messy and painful,” he said. “Doesn’t mean it isn’t still the most incredible thing that can ever happen to you. Doesn’t mean I’m not crazy about you.”


“Play that lick again, Dave.”

Lick: In rock music, a lick is "a stock pattern or phrase" consisting of a short series of notes that is used in solos and melodic lines.

Well, personally, I prefer the more literal meaning...

Hold me
Kiss me
4.5 Lickable Stars!!!

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.

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!

This story grabs a reader from the first p...more

DNF at 61 %. No official rating from moi. When I started reading Lick I said I wouldn't rate it IF I wouldn't like it. I keep my word although I must say it was no more than a two-star read. Review posted July 23, 2013

That's exactly what a lot of authors are doing these days and there is no need to beat around the bush. THAT'S. NOT. GOOD. ENOUGH. FOR. ME.

"so, congratulations. You're married to a rockstar."


Yes, yes, yes cinderella meets 'what happened in Vegas' meets a rockstar romance all combined to create the best kind of blissful book escape. 'Lick' was full of all kinds of treats, Rock God, famous beyond measure hero sweeps ordinary 21 year old off her feet in a whirl wind romance destined to be forever, did I love this book? You don't even need to ask, it had everything I loved tied up in a rock star package and as far...more
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.


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.

Recommends it for: anyone up for a mildly sexy read with fears of growing too attached to the characters
“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.

Not the funny, absurd kind with men who cums jarfuls of semen but the smut...more

Mix together What Happens in Vegas, The Hangover and throw in a smoking hot Rock Star and you have this book.

Ev wakes up in Vegas after celebrating her 21st birthday and she can't remember a single thing about the night before. When she sees a strange man, David , in her room she ask him what happened last night.
"We got f*cking married."

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…

Today, I woke up, thinking about Elvis somewhere in Vegas
I'm not sure how I got here

Waking in Vegas must be so interesting when this happens:
1. You wake up besides a hottie rockstar
2. You have a huge diamond ring
3. You have no memories of what happened previous night

I def added this into my dream list! VEGAS + ROCK STAR + MARRIED

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!

Good, respectable, sensible, Portland girl, Evelyn Thomas might have been p...more

I need a rock star husband. Pronto.

Yup, with all those steamy moments, it’s as easy as that.


If your looking for romance, steam, humor, and angst in a neatly wrapped and easy to read package, Lick is for you.

Ev has turned twenty-one and her friend, Lauren, has decided it’s time for her to let her hair down and forget about her “plan” for a few days.
That’s how she wakes up in Vegas hungover.
With a husband.
And a huge rock on her finger.
Oh, and don’t forget about the tattoo o...more

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

1.BB never wear 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 d...more
3.5 stars. Liked it. Good story, nice characters. I seriously thought that being on holidays, I would have way more time to read and review. Too busy doing other things.... have my own Rock n Roll in the coming days/weeks with with concerts to see The Boss (more than once) and Glen Hansard.....

"Somehow he managed to turn his face enough to kiss my neck, lick the sweat from my skin."

Pure fantastical escapism, beyond the realms of likelihood but unbelievably I believed in everything the author wrote and LOVED it too! ♥

Like many of you, I'm a sucker for this kind of stories, so I saw the cover, read the blurb and thought: rock musician? HELL YEAH!

'Lick' was an awesome surprise!

So, let's start with the characters:
I really liked 'Evelyn', she's not a groupie or anything like that, she's just a down-to-earth/play it safe, regular kind of girl who just wanted to have some fun in Vegas, but then she drinks too many tequila shots and gets hitched with a rock star (poor girl...)

The morning after, she wakes up with a...more
All I could do was stare. Given my current condition, he was just too much. The hair, face. Body, ink, all of it. Someone needed to invent a word superlative enough to describe him.

When Evelyn wakes up on the floor of a Vegas hotel bathroom with the hangover from hell, the last thing she expects to hear from the hot but unfamiliar looking inked up hottie taking care of her is that they’re married. Say what? The poor girl can’t remember anything after tequila shots and this sexy stranger’s claim...more

Hot damn this book was gooooooooood!!!!

“What do you remember?” he asked, voice hardening just a little. “Well … it’s hazy.” “No.” His frown increased until it owned his handsome face. “You have got to be f*cking kidding me. You seriously don’t know?”

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas........well not always....especially when you accidently get drunk and marry a Rockstar!!!!


But what a fine specimen you decided to drunkenly marry!!!!!!

This is another one of my "unplanned" read this year. I saw someone recommending it and being a sucker for a rocker (Wow, it rhymed!) girl that I am, I just had to read it.

“It’s not fair that I remember you and you don’t, Evelyn.”

Imagine waking up in a hotel room in Las Vegas, after a night of drinking and partying, with a hot tattooed guy in your bed, a huge ring on your finger, a killer hangover, but no recollection whatsoever of the night before. Now add to that the fact that you might not remember anything, but the rock star you woke up next to does, every single detail, and he might have been completely sober when you tied the knot?

I’ve got to say that this was an excellent reading. But then again, I usually love every book where the hero is a rock-star. Oh musicians, we can’t help loving them!
The good thing about this book is that it was slightly different than your traditional rock star history.
There was not some kind of love at first sight, throw drama in the middle, forget the groupies, I want the forever kind of story. After all, the protagonists started this book… married.

I'm going to keep it short. I LOVE this book. This story has great characters, dialogue, character growth, and steam. I originally shied away from it because of the whole "married in Vegas" story but it barely has to do with that. It was so much more than that. I'm so glad I gave it a chance. I most definitely recommend this book and can't wait for future books from this author! 4.5 stars ♥
