Lick (Stage Dive #1) - Review

Lick (Stage Dive #1)

by
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...

Okay what is not to love about a sexy successful tattooed rock god?  Yep ! that's right nothing.


I was hooked from the first few pages with Evelyn's inner dilemma of a major hang over only to find out that she is married. Oops!

"You've exceeded all of my expectations. I wanted you to let your hair down a little. Get a life and give mankind another chance. But this is a whole new level of crazy you've ascended to. Do you really have a tattoo?" - Lauren  "Yes." - Ev

Of course things couldn't be rainbows and lollipops.  David married Ev for a reason unbeknownst to Ev but since he's hurt and rejected he is quick to get the marriage annuled but Ev is not going to get pushed around from this world.

With the interference of Mal, he forces Ev and David to explore the chance of what if.

"Seriously, I fucking love your wife, man. She's awesome. Can I have her?" - Mal

During this weekend of exploring the what if. They fall for each other.

"Yes," he said simply. "I like you the way you are, blurting out whatever shit crosses your mind. Not trying to play me, or use me. You're just...being with me. I like you." - David

"You asked me this morning in the car if I thought you were scary. The answer is yes. You scare me shitless. I don't know what I'm doing here. But I hate the thought of leaving you." - David

That should be the end of the HEA but of course since David is a celebrity it is not a shock to hear about his past relationship which burnt him and it also left him with lies and secrets which we all know come back and kick you in the ass.  But with everyone wanting a piece of David life gets even harder for Ev.
"Yes, we've got a fake blonde with a bad tan giving us trouble, officer. I'm pretty certain I saw her at a frat party doing some serious underage drinking last week. I don't want to say what happened after that but the footage is available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure if you're over eighteen." - Amanda

With a bit of shock and a big case of miscommunication, manipulation of others and a lot of groveling what if's can become reality.

"I don't even know what you're talking about. Davie said to shut up," shouted Mal above the pair's raucous laughter. "Have some respect for his touching moment with Evelyn, you assholes." - Mal
I loved the relationship of David and Ev from the banter to the passion.


I can NOT wait to find out more from this series. Loved it!!!!!!

4.5 Rock God loving thumps up!
