Romance fiction in most genres are my favourite reads. Having travelled a fair bit in my misspent years, I'm now a solo-mum to a VERY energetic and adventurous little one and I've turned my spare time into reliving some past travel adventures and expanding on them to write entertaining (hopefully) works of fiction. Maybe they'll be published, maybe not. Either way I'm enjoying where my imagination can take me.
[Book 1 in The Stage Dive series]
This was my first Kylie Scott book and I’ve not really come across the Rocker romance before but I absolutely loved it.
The point of view from the heroine, Evelyn, was real and current. When she woke with the hangover from hell in her hotel room in Vegas with a strange man, you begin to think along the predictable “happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” scenario. But NO, that is not what you read here.
Evelyn has a total blackout of the night before and her husband, Yep she decided getting married to David was a good idea at the time. OK, so far it's the usual Vegas story.
David is the lead guitarist of a major rock band and this puts them both in the spotlight from day 1. So with the story, comes a blackout from the 'bride', paparazzi at every turn for Evelyn and her friends and family and for David and the band.
Dealing with the band, and figuring out what she wants, Evelyn and David spend time together in his world and in hers to figure it all out.
They both have their scars from past relationships and work to overcome them because it was basically love at first sight for David. If only Evelyn could remember.
What made this story different for me and not so predictable was the way it was written by Ms Scott in a current and real way. I believed the characters and their motivation in all the situations.
If you are into a Contemporary Romance that has an HEA but with a lot of realistic bumps along the way, you should check out Lick, and then I’m sure like me, you’ll be buying the rest of the Stage Dive series.
