Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott
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 favorite son is sure to be a wild ride.
5 out of 5 stars
I absolutely loved this story! I had a little bit of that lost feeling when it was over. You know it’s good when you go into a small state of mourning.
Chapter 1 of this book had me hooked, I couldn’t put it down. I thought the story line was great. I loved the two main characters Evelyn and David. As the synopsis says, they woke up married in Las Vegas and their story evolves from there.
Evelyn seemed like such a normal person that got herself into an extreme situation. I like that she’s strong and tries to assert herself. I really loved a particular spot at the end where she stands up for herself. I think she learned a lot about herself and did a lot of growing up.
David is just amazing! He’s super hot, sexy, and sweet but has a temper and a lot of buried pain, which unfolds throughout the book. He just seems to be such a kind soul and has a lot of endearing qualities. David matures a tremendous amount over the course of the book and comes to terms with a lot of things and is stronger for it.
Evelyn and David together are perfect! Perfect. They have amazing chemistry and I like their interactions with one another. They also both have some things they need to work on and it made for some really heart wrenching moments. The pain they both go through makes you really feel for them, I was so emotionally invested and caught up in their situation. The turmoil at the end was slightly gut wrenching. I couldn’t read fast enough!
The liked the other characters and thought they were introduced well. Mal was awesome! He brought a lot of playfulness and comic relief to the story. I loved all of his banter. This is the first book in a series and I’d love to see him featured at some point.
I thought this was brilliantly written. The story had a good reading pace throughout. There was lots of tension and fighting as well as lots love. And of course there were several SUPER HOT sex scenes!
Loved the chemistry and heat in Lick! I’d definitely recommend this. Such an awesome story!

The cover show below is the original cover for Lick that was available when I first purchased and reviewed the book. I love the new cover (show above) but I think there’s something special about this one too and wanted to keep it on the post.
