Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic New Adult 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. 

Val’s Review

11/20/15 Re-re-read

So now that I think I’ve read this about 10 times I realize that I must like it a lot more than I originally thought. 

It’s like a sneak attack book. 


I mean, why else would I keep coming back to it?

Something about the way Jimmy comes after her in the end. It’s a pretty good substitute for a good grovel in my book. 

And I dig it. 


So fuck it, 5-star upgrade!


Re-read 10/13/14…And my thoughts are pretty much still the same. Still a decent read though!

Original Review: 

3.5 to LOW 4 Stars

This was a decent read, but quite honestly, it did not meet my super high (probably unrealistic) expectations for this book. 


In fact, it took me a long time to decide what I wanted to rate it. I finally went with a low 4/3.5, but that is only in the context of the series as a whole. If this had been a standalone…

I don’t know. I can’t really even put a finger on why I didn’t love it.


On to Ben!
