Book Review: Lick (Stage Dive 1) by Kylie Scott

“Let me get this straight, you don’t remember anything?”
“No,” I said, swallowing hard. “What did we do last night?”
“We got fucking married.” he growled.

Lick is one of those books that you know right of the bat that you can finish it in one sitting, and you are excited as hell for it. Kylie Scott did a very good job with this one; the writing style, the plot, the characters, they were all impeccably done.

I honestly did not want this story to end. It’s so not fair how the good ones are always ending so quickly. But nevertheless, I couldn’t help the huge goofy grin on my face throughout the whole story. DAVID IS SO FREAKING ADORABLE!!!

“So, come on,” he said softly, taunting me. “What’s the plan here, Ev? How were you going to convince me?”
“Oh. Well, I was um … I was going to seduce you, I guess. And see what happened. Yeah…”
“How? By complaining about me buying you stuff?”
“No. That was just an added bonus. You’re welcome.”
He licked his lips, but I saw the smile. “Right. Come on then, show me your moves.”
“My moves?”
“Your seduction techniques. Come on, time’s a-wasting.” I hesitated and he clicked his tongue, impatient. “I’m only wearing a towel, baby. How hard can this be?”

As I said it was an enjoyable fast read. Too fast for me though. I wanted to read more. I wanted more of David’s blue eyes and “freakishly” long hair… (Sigh)

“His eyes were the darkest blue. They couldn’t be real. Frankly, those eyes were overkill. I’d have swooned perfectly fine without them.”

Their instantaneous connection was something you can’t help but fall in love with and left me wanting my own David!! (No, seriously!) While reading the book i was afraid that their sizzling chemistry will burn a hole through the pages (…a bit too much?!? Well I can’t help it.)

“His hands cupped my face, holding me to him. The kiss was so sweet and perfect. It was a promise, one that wouldn’t be broken this time. We’d both learned from our mistakes and we’d keep learning all our lives.”

David looks to be that cocky asshole, who would do anything with legs and a skirt. On the outside. Yes he sure acts like one but as you get to know him better you realize that he is just that vulnerable, broken hearted blue-eyed boy you want to protect from the rest of the world and keep him to yourself. The fact that he is a guitarist probably doesn’t help matters either.

Everything about this book was loved by me… well, apart from the fact that it ended too quickly and there won’t be a second book about David and Evelyn. BUMMER!
I don’t know how the rest of the books in the series will turn out, how the author will top this one. It was just that good that it set a standard for me. I really want to hold on to this story really badly but in the process of falling in love with David I also fell for Malcom. *squee!* That and the fact that I would get to read more of Dave and Ev is the sole reason I’m picking up the next book in the series, Play. It’s just too good to pass.

“I married you, Evelyn, because you made sense to me. We make sense. We’re a whole lot better together than apart.”
