Stage Dive, #3
by Kylie Scott
Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic rock star romance series from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, author of Lick and Play.
As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it’s booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.
Lena’s not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.
Oh man! I have love the men (and women) of Stage Dive from book one and this was no exception. The characters had me laughing so many times and then there were those steamy sex scenes that will really get your blood pumping. I was so engrossed in the story that I devoured it in a few short hours.
Jimmy and Lena have a mutual snarky and tolerance of each other when they first meet. Lena is hired to be Jimmy’s sobriety companion and morphs into a bit of an assistant as well. She’s always handled his cold and indifferent attitude with sarcasm and wit. After they have to attend a very close friend’s funeral, things begin to grow to more than that. Due to a lot of psychological damage done my his mom, Jimmy is immature when it comes to handling and understanding feelings. Lena does an excellent job of teaching him how to deal with things. I absolutely loved her personality. She doesn’t put up with Jimmy’s excuses and tells him like it is.
The story line was one of growth and healing but also about learning what it means to love. It drew me right in and kept me there until the very last word. I absolutely loved all of the characters and enjoyed the sense of humor the whole group shared. The story flowed really smoothly and I found it a very enjoyable read. I loved this book and I can’t wait to read the final book. 5 out of 5 palm trees!
