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.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I always look forward to reading a Stage Dive installment.

They’d be David and Jimmy Ferris, the brothers. Ben Nicholson, the bass player, and largest of them all was stretched out, hands behind his head, fast asleep. Kudos to him. Not a bad method of getting through a meeting.

Mal gave me a finger wave. “Lena Morrissey, huh?”

“Yes.”

“I like you. You’re funny.”



Kylie never disappoints me.

Mal.

Mal.

Mal.

Whether you are in the limelight or playing the sub character role, you are THE FUNNIEST guy I can think of in new adult contemporary romance.

You tickle my funny bone every time you open your mouth and speak.

I look forward to the Mal Moments.


“Interesting. I’m going to tell you what I told Killer, at puppy training today when he tried to mount a teacup poodle he’d only just met. If she means something to you, you gotta do the woo, son. You can’t just be trying to stick it in.”

4.00am in the morning and I am giggling my head off.

Lena was the real turn around character for me, because the impression I got of her in the previous installments was she was a little stand offish. She surprised me with her inner monologue. I really liked her. She has a handle on Jimmy and that is why he likes having her around. She is the calm in his storm.

But, Jimmy is Jimmy and the lad has issues he’s still working out. 

The man was beautiful in much the same way as the stars. I could only look upon him with longing, he was so far out of my reach. Still, moments like these are meant to be momentous. Fate shifting beneath your feet should feel big. But instead of mood lighting and dramatic music, I got a cranky cold blue stare from a guy in a razor sharp suit. Dark hair fell over his face and collar, framing the cheekbones of an angel but the jaw of a stubborn child. Every other discernible inch of him appeared to be fully grown male. The way he held his jaw, however...well.

And the man might be pretty, but he sure as hell wasn’t nice. I’d met enough not-nice men to know. Trust me to find him attractive.




Whatever else he might be, Jimmy Ferris was special and complicated, beautiful and beastly, all rolled into one. A natural born performer.



Around me, dinner conversation went on. None of it fascinated me half as much as Jimmy. He was such a dichotomy of good and evil, beautiful and bad.


I was thinking of Tina Turner’s, ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It,’ when I was thinking of Jimmy. I think the lyrics suit Jimmy and Lena’s initial relationship and his walls he has up.



I liked watching the play off’s Lena and Jimmy had.

“Fuck’s sake. Is it not enough that I make sure your favorite chocolate cream pie is in the fridge at this time of the month?”

Then when the band members got involved. Bahahahaaa.

“She’s not my only friend.” Color rose in Jimmy’s cheeks.

“Quiet, Jimmy,” ordered Mal. “The adults are talking.”


To be honest I would have loved some Jimmy pov. I would have loved to be in his head.

The Stage Dive series for me is all about entertainment and Kylie gives it to me in buckets. Mal is her secret weapon, I have no doubt about that.

I am looking forward to Deep, because Benny boy is still a bit of an enigma for me. Did I see a seed dropped in this installment?

I highly recommend this new adult contemporary series, it is filled with lads you want to dream about.
