Ben is the bass player of Stage Dive, and he's known as the type that doesn't do relationships and will never really settle down. Unfortunately, his world is about to change with a one night stand. Lizzy has been infatuated with the sexy, tall, bearded bass player since the moment she met the band, but Ben only wants to be friends. He has reasons on why he wants to be just friends and that reason is Mal. (Oh boy Mal definitely doesn't make it easy for Ben in this story) Lizzy tries everything to gain his attention, but he's been hardheaded and stubborn, until a trip to Las Vegas changes everything. Lizzy and Ben's world is going to turn a 360 with one single test that could bring them together or separate them further. It's definitely up to them to decide which one it will. Or in the case of reading Deep, you'll realize it's actually up to the one sexy tattooed bass player to decide their future. (Ben you definitely were a jerk at times with deciding your future) Ben is the hard-headed stubborn rockstar of Stage Dive. The man can't make decisions on what he wants really, but he definitely knows how to piss off Lizzy constantly. I felt for Lizzy in the story because here it is, she just wants his attention and to show him how much she cares about him. Unfortunately, Ben is too scared to do anything. I could've throttled the man at times for Lizzy. Lizzy had a huge support system with the other Stage Dive members and I truly enjoyed having all the rest of Stage Dive and their girls in Deep. I definitely enjoyed reading more of Mal. (He will always be a favorite of mine). He's crazy humor and downright straightforward personality makes him irresistible and SEXY! Anne is one lucy woman! Kylie writes the story by starting off in present time and then going back to when Ben and Lizzy hooked up. This definitely made the story flow very well and I definitely wanted to find out how these two finally hooked up. Poor Lizzy though throughout the story had to deal with so much. She even knew how to handle Ben's obnoxious crazy sister. (You'll definitely want to hurt her when she is comes forward in the story.)
In the end, Deep was an amazing ending to a very addicting series that I definitely plan on reading again. I'm sad that Stage Dive has come to an end, but I know Kylie is writing another series I know I will enjoy too. She's one author I automatically always buy her books because I know she'll write some addicting characters that I will adore, and unforgettable stories that will require being read again and again. I give this book 4.5 stars and highly recommend it to readers that enjoy rock star romance books. Just be warned Mal is MINE! Yup…he won me over since the beginning and he'll always be unforgettable. =)...more
4.5 stars - 'When It's Right' by Jennifer Ryan The moment I started reading the first chapter ofWhen It's Right, I knew this it was going to be one em4.5 stars - 'When It's Right' by Jennifer Ryan The moment I started reading the first chapter of When It's Right, I knew this it was going to be one emotional roller coaster of a book. The first chapter alone grabbed me into the story. It also didn't help with having such a lovable male character who won me over the minute Jennifer switched to his POV. Oh…HOW I LOVE BLAKE BOWEN! He was a sweetheart cowboy the whole entire time in the book. Jennifer definitely matched the female character with the perfect Bowden man. (I'm definitely jealous.) Gillian Tucker is the female character of the story and she hasn't had it easy at all. Again, the first chapter alone will grip you in and explain what the girl has gone through. The story digs deeper into what Gillian has been through when your reading the story. (but I won't give it away) She is one determined woman who can handle what is thrown at her. Gillian doesn't really trust easily until she meets her Grandfather and one of his co-workers at his Ranch that she is now going to be living at. The minute Blake sees Gillian he knows he won't be able to let her go. It's an instant attraction kind of thing, but Gillian doesn't make it easy for Blake. She's had it rough. She also has been taking care not only of herself, but someone else too. Blake will do anything to win her over though. He'll even do it very slowly. He's what you will call the perfect caring gentleman. There's going to be drama in the book that will be uncomfortable at times. Gillian is put in certain situations that definitely make it difficult to read because she's been through so much already. I wanted to go through the book and help her during those tough times. Jennifer definitely didn't make Gillian weak though. She's a fighter. She also has the biggest support system ever in this book. It just takes her a while to realize she has people to lean on. I will admit I teared up during certain scenes in the book, especially in one certain point that was a happy moment. Yup…tissues were needed. I will say it again though, Jennifer wrote the two perfect people to be together. Gillian needed Blake and Blake needed Gillian. These two are my favorite so far in the Montana Men series. I give this book 4.5 stars and look forward to reading the next in the series. This series is making me want to get a ranch out in Montana now. Maybe I can convince the hubs to move again. =)...more
The story includes not only drama between Margo and Alexander due to what Alexander is up as far as his companyFull Review posted at Book Lovin' Mamas
The story includes not only drama between Margo and Alexander due to what Alexander is up as far as his company and Margo's future with her father's company, but some very HEATED moments between the two. Prepare for tension, mean & snarky comments, and lots of playtime in the bedroom with some toys. (or in the case of these two, a very interesting hotel room) That cliffhanger will leave you in a bit of shock. Definitely wasn't prepared for that kind of ending.
I give this book 4 stars and anxiously wait for the next installment. NOTE: ANXIOUSLY wait. =)...more
Other readers may like Random & Rare, but for me it didn't grip me in like Lock & Key did. It's a re-telling from a character ofDNF'd at 28%.
Other readers may like Random & Rare, but for me it didn't grip me in like Lock & Key did. It's a re-telling from a character of the first book but different POV and well…I won't spoil it because I don't want to give anything away. I was just hoping for different characters in this story. =(
Will I read the next book in the series? Heck yes I will. Just because I didn't like the characters in this book…doesn't mean I will stop reading this series. I loved Lock & Key and I look forward to reading who are the next characters in the series. ...more
