I would like to begin the review by saying… HALLELUJAH! I have been not so patiently waiting for new material from Kylie Scott, scouring the internet and silently stalking her social media accounts. Once this hit Netgalley, I pounced. I. MUST. HAVE. IT. And… in true Kylie Scott fashion, she did not disappoint.
Story – The story started off a tad on the cliche side. Girl (Lydia) finds out her fiance is cheating on her on their wedding day.. yeah, yeah, ive read this before. But almost immediately I see the Kylie Scott spin. (Gah, shes good)
Lydia, obviously is heartbroken. She busts into Vaughan’s (not the fiance) house still decked out in her wedding dress. Vaughan finds her in his bathtub. (Oh, it just gets better). What exactly does one former rocker-turned-bartender do with a fully dressed bride sobbing in the tub? The story line had a wonderful flow to it. Smooth as a baby’s bum. If everyone would leave me alone (why wont you people LEAVE ME ALONE) I could have read the entire book in one sitting. It was light on the drama, heavy on the sexy and just the right length.
Characters- Since day one of the Stage Dive series (Lick) – I have been hopelessly in love with Kylie Scott characters. They are unique, funny, certainly on the alpha side with the males and most of all – they are memorable. Vaughan is no exception. He takes wonderful care of Lydia and he is just so swoony. I totally loved him. Lydia… I liked her, but I didnt love her. Her inner dialogue gave me a little grief. How can she think soooo much when she is kissing a MAN. LIKE. VAUGHAN? Just shut up already and get with the kissing.
All in all, it was great. It wasnt perfect but books rarely ever are. Would I recommend it? DEFINITELY. To readers who are looking for light, sexy, relatively drama free reads that will still get their motors running and contain memorable characters who are easy to fall in love with.
