Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott- 5 Stars

Lick by Kylie Scott, audio-book cover
I am a big fun of Kylie Scott's romance books and this did not disappoint. The real question is: Why haven't I read this before? I am looking forward to the next one- luckily for me this is not brand new and I can dive straight into it!


"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 never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.


In Kylie Scott's Lick, one thing is certain: being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride." (Book Blurb)

I thought it was hilarious how this book started and adorable how it ended. 

"Let me get this straight, you don't remember anything?" 


"No," I said, swallowing hard. "What did we do last night?" 

"We got fucking married." he growled.

There is so much more to both characters than you assume after their rough beginning. And gosh I felt bad for David. He is not a bad guy who took advantage of her, that is very clear from the start, so I felt for him instantly. 

Evelyn soon realizes she didn't marry a nobody, he is a very famous rock-star and things get complicated (as if they weren't already) real fast. In an attempt to run away from the crazy and sort out the mess David takes Evelyn to his home, the one away from the paparazzi. the plan to start is to stay there until divorce papers are sorted, but as they get to know each other -or she gets to know him- she slowly starts to see why she married him in such a crazy way... I won't say more on the story-line not to spoil it for you all and I strongly recommend you read it.

Evelyn was not necessarily my favorite female character ever written but she was a good girl, down to earth, and honest. I understood her decisions. 
David melt my heart. The guy is tired and finally finds someone who sees him for who is and she completely forgets all about him. That on top of all the insecurities he has because of his past makes things rather hard for him.
The drama that unfold because of the rushed marriage and things that happen afterwards was well written and well thought. At no point did it make me roll my eyes (which can often happen with drama) and it didn't linger forever and ever either. It was fast paced and a pure joy to read.

As another reviewer said: This is a book about taking chances and following your heart and dreams. 

This book was published May 2014.

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
