Lead (Stage Dive #3) by Kylie Scott 4.5/5 stars
But I am getting ahead of myself here... it is the excitement and beauty that was Jimmy Ferris, you will have to forgive me!
Here is the blurb:
As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it's booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.
Lena's not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.
I loved Lena. She made no excuses for his actions or for hers, she knew from the beginning exactly what she was getting into, she knew she was falling for a self-centered womanizer and knew there was no future for them... it all made for some rather funny scenes!
"Fancy falling for someone you didn't even particularly like half the damn time. Who did something so stupid? I mean apart from me obviously."
Jimmy is an ass. I didn't particularly like his small appearances in the first book or in the second. He is an alcoholic, has lived the rock star life to its max. But, he goes to rehab, gets better, and Lena is employed as his new assistant. He doesn't like his assistants... so you can guess how well he treats her.
As the book progresses we find that there is a lot more to Jimmy than first impressions show. And the more Lena gets to know him the more she loves him (as did I and I'm sure everyone that read their story). I simply dare you to not fall in love with Jimmy!
“Don’t hate me, Lena,” he whispered. “You want to be mad at me when I do dumb things, that’s fine. But don’t ever hate me. I couldn’t take that, not from you.”
And of-course, just like the last book, my favorite thing about it is that the other characters, specially David Ferris, all play a special, even if small part in the book.
