Happy Release Day For Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott Review And Interview


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 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.

My Review

5 of 5 Lick

LICK.... LICK.... LICK....

Where to begin this review? Lord knows I have no idea so I am going to try and be coherent because I have to say that Lick totally blew my mind! I mean I love me some bad boy rockers but holy mother of GOD David is the embodiment of what a bad ass rocker is. I actually shut myself off from school and family to read Lick and I am so glad I did. First of all the cover is so swoon worthy. The cover screams read me and then I opened up my kindle to the opening to read and Lord let me tell you I was hooked. 

Lick opens up with Evelyn and her best friend Lauren in Las Vegas celebrating Evelyn's 21st birthday. She is drinking and dancing and having fun and when she wakes up she is on the bathroom floor not sure where she is but there is an Adonis on the floor with her and as soon as he sees she is awake he immediately starts to take care of her. Evelyn is not sure where she is or who the stranger is but she soon feels this heaviness on her hand and when she looks down she sees the hugest diamond ever on her ring finger. When she asks the stranger what happened and who he is she realizes she is married. HOLY F^&% you know the phrase what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas well this will not be true for Evelyn because the minute she steps off the plain to go home she is greeted by paparazzi screaming at her and trying to take her picture. Evelyn knows she is in trouble now and when she tells Lauren everything Lauren kicks into action to get them home safe in one piece. But the fun has just begun because Lauren explains to Evelyn who she is married to.

As Evelyn tries to gain so semblance of reality to the situation she knows she must be going crazy because why would the lead guitarist of Stage Dive want to be married to her? Why would David want her? I got to give it to David he has secrets and he is in a bind because the band is pissed he went off and got married but they will work it out. The solution is for Evelyn to give David a chance instead of annulling the marriage right away. Evelyn is not so sure of living the life of a rock stars wife but she is willing to hear David out and what happens after that is the crux of the story and HOLY MOTHER this story is so hot, sexy, steamy and everything in between it is a SUMMER MUST READ! Come along for a ride of a lifetime and see what happens to David and Evelyn? Will they stay married or will they divorce and go on their own way? Want answers well you need to read the book to find out!

Interview With Kylie Scott:

Today we have a special guest with us on A Diary Of A Book Addict. Please help me welcome Kylie Scott who is the author of the much anticipated book Lick. First I have to say that Lick is the most INCREDIBLE read I have read in a long time. I love rocker bad boys because let’s face it who does not like a rocker bad boy and a guitarist at that. But enough swooning which I guarantee you will be doing after you read Lick! Kyle thank you for stopping by and answering some of our questions we have. 

Thank you for inviting me!

How does it feel to write a New Adult Book vs. writing your adult books?

I really enjoyed it. Getting into that headspace of what it’s like to be in your late teens/early twenties and figuring out how to deal with life as an adult. For most people, you’re fully responsible for yourself and your actions for the first time during that period. It’s a steep learning curve.

What inspired you to write Lick?

I’ve been a music and book addict for forever. Combining the two seemed only natural. Plus, rock stars have a fine tradition of being tatted up bad boys. How could I resist? 

Is music a big part of your life?

Yes. I’m only an average guitar player, but I love having play lists for when I’m writing my books.

What music influenced you most while writing Lick?

I had a blend of Rock and Alt Country for when I wrote Lick. Artists like Kings of Leon, Pink, The Killers, Johnny Cash and Lady Antebellum. 

What is David’s favorite song?

“Four Sticks” by Led Zeppelin

What is Evelyn’s favorite song?

“Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum

What was going on in Evelyn’s mind when she found out she married David Ferris the lead guitarist from Stage Dive?

Pure panic.

Why did David marry Evelyn?

Because she was funny, smart and sweet, and treated him like a real person. She didn’t want anything from him. I’d also imagine there was a healthy dose of lust mixed in with all of that. 

When did Evelyn realize she really loved David?

I think it was probably when they had their first real argument and he shut her out, not talking to her about exactly what the hell his problem was. You often don’t realize how much you want in with a person and how much they mean to you until they completely shut you out. 

Can you tell us three things David secretly loves about Evelyn?

Good question. Hmm. She’s pretty open-minded and has a good sense of justice. Her attitude when it comes to sex, she curious and more than willing.

Can you tell us three things that Evelyn secretly loves about David?

He has a soft underbelly that’s very appealing. When they’re alone together she’s got his complete attention. He’s very loyal too and at her side, backing her up, when she needs him to be.

When can we expect book 2 to be out?

Nothing definite at the moment, but hopefully early next year. Stay tuned. It will happen, I promise.

Kylie thank you so much for stopping by and answering our questions. Lick is going to be one of the summer top reads! Everyone loves a rocker bad boy and David lord he is so swoon worthy!

Time for the Sunday snippet. Today I have a wee bit of a sexy time scene for you from LICK, my NA out 1st July. (It's now up for pre-order on Amazon.) If you’re unfamiliar with the storyline, here’s the quickie blurb….

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hang-over to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man beside her, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened. 

I felt all lit up inside. Like a potent mix of hormones was racing through me at light speed. His other hand curled around the back of my neck, bringing my mouth to his. Kissing David threw kerosene on the mix within me. He slid his tongue into my mouth to stroke against my own, before teasing over my teeth and lips. I’d never felt anything so fine. Fingers caressed my breast, doing wonderful things and making me gasp. God, the heat of his bare skin. I shuffled forward, seeking more, needing it. His hand left my breast to splay across my back, pressing me against him. He was hard. I could feel him through both layers of denim. The pressure that provided between my legs was heavenly. Amazing.

“That’s it,” he murmured as I rocked against him, seeking more.
