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.

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

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
