Review of Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott

Synopsis: 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.

5 Stars!

Review: Ev wakes up on the bathroom floor of her hotel room with no memory of the night before. Right in front of her is the most amazing, beautiful man asking her if she is okay and trying to help her in the middle of her sickness. When it becomes clear to him that she has no memory of the night before - or their marriage - he gets angry and bails pretty quickly. Ev returns home to Portland with her friend, Lauren, and from there, her life is never the same. She walks out of the airport to a frenzy of paparazzi trying to take her picture and ask her what it's like being married to a rock star. She is shocked! 

David, the rock star in question, contacts her pretty quickly to have her flown to where he is in LA so that they can fix this situation. Instead, from the moment she lands in LA, she is thrown to the wolves. David does not seem happy to see her, and he still seems very angry. He basically leaves her to herself once she arrives at the band's house, and then, she is basically attacked by David's brother, his agent, and his lawyers. One of the other band members, Mal, comes to her rescue, but his help also gets her David's attention again. David, seeming to realize what a jerk he has been, decides to take Ev away for a few days so that they can work things out. 

What follows are basically two short days of the two of them re-learning one another, well, in Ev's case, it's re-learning. She falls for David again, and they decide to try to make things work. The real world is not very far away, however, and when they return to LA for a quick show, everything from David's past, that he has not really shared with Ev, comes back to try to tear them apart. Ev leaves, which breaks David, but it also makes him decide if she is worth fighting for, which is something that he had not seemed so sure about before LA. 

This book is so full of detail, and so much seems to happen even in the span of hours, that it moves so quickly! David seemed to grow as a person, as did Ev, although she was due for some growth and figuring things out, as she has gone through life letting her dad tell her what to do. The two of them had some truly touching moments to go along with the really steamy times that they had, as well! If you are in the mood for a hot rocker book, definitely check this one out!
