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.
One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.Taken from book blurb
Since it’s just before Valentine’s Day, I thought I would celebrate with a romance themed Long Lost Review. So sit back and enjoy a review of a book I have not read in many, many years.
Lick was a book that was highly recommendation to me by my friend, Jess. So with this glowing review, I quickly tracked down and picked up a copy of this new Australia author. I remember reading the book and thoroughly enjoying it!
As Lick fell into the category of one of the few contemporary romances that I read, I found the story to be quite different to what I was used to – if only because I tend to favour LGBTQ, fantasy, and historical romances – so the modern, explicit, and very heterosexual storyline was quite a shift. While the story was quite a clear cut, almost rags to riches story, of a main female protagonist who snags a rich rock star – I was more impressed with the new author.
Kylie Scott proved to be a very engaging and emotional writer. I remember not just flying through the book because of the story but because I was compelled; I was invested in the emotional arch of these two as they fought with each other against the world.
I remember enjoying Lick quite a lot, and even though it is not from my favoured romance sub-genre, I still enjoyed the characters and story. Sadly though, after the sequel Play, I did not continue on with the rest of the ‘Stage Dive’ series. I am glad to know that Kylie Scott kept writing, so be sure to check out one this Australia author!
