Giveaway and review! Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott
I finished reading Lick a few days ago. I haven't stopped thinking about it since! It is one of my favorite books for 2013. I am now offering up one e-copy of Lick. Read my review below and then be sure to enter! Giveaway runs until July 4th. The winner will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.
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.

Oh goodness! Yummyness! Whatever “-ness” you would like to add! I devoured Lick in one day! I just couldn’t put it down! A barista and a hot tattooed rock god makes for a great book! The action, the romance, the lust, the hurt…..It was all very addicting!
The Stage Dive series is a NA contemporary/realistic fiction, with Lick being the first book. I enjoy NA as much as I do YA. You make have read Scott’s other series, Flesh, but this was my first by her.
Evelyn Thomas is a 21-year old barista/college student. The story begins at her 21st birthday in Vegas. She gets hammered, and the next day cannot remember much of what happened. She wakes up in the bathroom, and shortly enters the hot tattooed rock god himself, David Ferris. With that comes the bit of news that they had gotten married the night before…now making her Mrs. Evelyn Ferris.
All marriages have their ups and downs throughout it, but how does it work when you don’t even know the person that you are now married to? And to top it off your new husband is a famous rock god. Now enters the “A” word…annulment. When that doesn’t go as planned things start quickly changing. Now is the true test. When your worlds are completely different, can a marriage make it?
Both Evelyn and David have great personalities, and I truly enjoyed getting to know them in the book. Even the other characters had their own personalities, that even though they were different from each other, they all fit together.
I do think that the book would have be SOOO much better if there had been more to it. I’m not saying that it lacked anything. I would have liked the book to have been a bit longer, just so it would have lasted longer!
