ISHO Summary
Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins’ ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben’s the only man she’s ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn’t looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She’s his best friend’s little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he’s not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he’s always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible…but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

This is the fourth and final book in the Stage Dive Series.  While I have been waiting anxiously for this book, it was bittersweet to finally read it.

Throughout the series, we’ve had glimpses of Ben and Lizzy and carried suspicions about the two of them.  Ben has always been the strong silent type, always leaving you wondering.  When one night in Vegas ends up making them parents we see Ben trying to do the right thing but at the same time being a bit too easy going and laid back about it.

I enjoyed the journey that Ben and Lizzy went on in this book and loved seeing the whole gang again, especially Mal. He’s definitely the craziest most lovable member of the band.

As I mentioned before, it was kind of sad to come to the end of this book knowing that there will be no more Stage Dive books.  Luckily for me, these books live on in audio format. [I don’t have time to reread books so audio keeps me company on my drive to and from work.]

I gave Deep five cups of delicious and heart warming coffee.

NEW Five coffee

ISHO Excerpt

“C’mon. How have you been, really? What’s been going on with you?” he pushed. I frowned at him and he frowned right back. “Liz, please.”
I groaned in defeat. “All right, I suck.”
“Why do you suck?”
“So very many reasons.” I pushed my hair back from my face—no more hiding. “Pregnancy sucks. It’s natural, my ass. I finally stop throwing up, but I’m tired all the time. Giving up coffee was horrendous. None of my clothes fit right because of these stupid breasts, and they ache constantly. I have to pee like every thirty seconds, and then to top it off, I cry every time the Healthy Hound ad comes on. It’s ridiculous”
Little wrinkles appeared either side of his nose. “You cry at a dog food ad?”
“Yes. The puppies jump all over each other to get to their mother and it’s just so beautiful, with their cute little tails wagging and everything.”
He just stared at me.
“I know its psycho, Ben. Believe me, I’m well aware of this.”
“Hey, it’s fine.” He covered a smile with his hand. Too late, the bastard.
“You try dealing with all these hormones going apeshit. Crap. Apeshoot.”
“Apeshoot?”
“I’m trying not to swear,” I explained. “You want the first word our child comes out with to be something bad?”
“No. Gotcha.” The man was incredibly bad at hiding a grin. “No swearing.”

Pre-Release Blitz: Deep by Kylie Scott

deep pre-release

ISHO Excerpt
“Where have you been?” My sister rushed forward, catching me up in a tight hug. “I’ve been trying to call you all day. We checked everywhere and couldn’t find you.”
“Sorry. I just needed some alone time.” I squeezed her back, unable to stop from smiling. The thought of Anne turning her back on me had scared me more than I liked to admit.
“Well, I get you might want that.” She stepped back. “But you could have told someone.”
“You can’t just disappear like that.” And Ben kept right on frowning. “Shit, Liz, you’re pregnant.”
“Don’t upset her,” snapped Anne.
Ben ignored her. “I don’t know what the hell’s going on in your head. But you need to let me know where you are.”
My eyebrows went up and my mouth opened, ready to rip him a new one.
“She doesn’t answer to you. She’ll let you know if and when she decides to let you know,” said Mal, laying down the law to his bandmate before turning my way. “You will text your sister next time you decide to go wandering for a day, understood?”
My mouth, it still hung open.
“Christ, man.” Over and over, Ben’s hands rolled into tight fists before releasing again. “Can you cut the shit and get off my back for a fucking minute?”
“Don’t swear at him.” My usually sensible and staid sister poked a finger dead center in Ben’s broad chest. “You’re the one that caused this mess, thank you very much. She might still be a little young and naive, but you’re definitely old enough to know better.”
“That’s right.” Standing about as tall as a skyscraper, despite only coming up to Ben’s nose, Mal stared him down. Or up. Whatever. “This is a family matter. You can leave, thanks.”

Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic New Adult series from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, author of Lick and Play.

 

About Lead (Stage Drive #3):

Lead

ISHO Summary

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.

 

isho-my-opinion2

I received an ARC of Lead in exchange for my honest opinion.  This made me really happy as I’ve been a big fan of the Stage Dive series since I laid eyes on the cover (the original cover) of Lick, last summer.

I really was anxious to hear Jimmy’s story since he wasn’t the nicest person from the onset.  Jimmy has now totally redeemed himself.  I thank Kylie Scott for this!!!  He starts off as a grumpy ass but we soon see there’s so much more to him.

Lena gets hired as Jimmy’s sobriety companion, thanks to Mal, the sexy drummer. [Note:  Just for the record, I LOVE MAL!!!]. At first he’s resistant to the idea but gives in.  Lena is strong and just what Jimmy needs.  The relationship quickly develops to one of friendship but Lena has more feelings for him.

I devoured this book.  I couldn’t wait  for Jimmy to come to the realization that Lena meant more to him than he was willing to admit.  Add to this, all the other characters that we know and love: David, Ev, Mal… [have I mentioned that I love Mal?!]…, Anne, Ben and Lizzy [Bring on Ben’s book! I cannot wait!].  And of course, there’s Killer, Mal & Anne’s puppy.  How cute is he???!!!

I loved this book so much.  Kylie Scott consistently gives us characters and stories that we love to love.  I gave it five steamy, delicious caffe lattes with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle on top.

ISHO Excerpt

“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”

“Nope.”

“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.

“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”

Can’t find it anywhere…”

“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”

“Sure you haven’t seen it?”

“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low.

I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.

He frowned. “No.”

“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like
some creepy perv?”

“Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.

“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.

“Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.”

Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”

“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”

“I’m not!”

Golden Trail by Kristen Ashley

I’m really enjoying this third book in The Burg Series.  Unlike most of Kristen Ashley’s other books, this one is told strictly from the male POV.  It is a very long book but I am loving every single word.

What I recently read:

At Peace by Kristen Ashley

I had almost forgotten what it was like to read a “new” Kristen Ashley book.  This is book two in The Burg Series.  It was wonderful.  I loved all the characters and it was nice to see characters from the previous book.

What I hope to read next:

Lead by Kylie Scott

OH BOY!!!! I’m totally excited about getting ready for this one.  It’s the third book in the Stage Dive Series.  I CANNOT WAIT FOR JIMMY’S STORY!!!!
