Feature book: Lick
Waking up in a hotel room with the worst hangover in history and looking up to see the most gorgeous guy ever was not how Evelyn Thomas had planned this big weekend in Vegas. Not remembering anything about it all made it even worse. Then she discovers she’s actually married to aforementioned beautiful man and that he’s a famous rock star, which only adds to the surreal situation in which she finds herself. Unimpressed by David’s fame, embarrassed at her own impetuousness, she heads home, hoping to put the disastrous night behind her. Evelyn soon discovers, however, that it’s not going to be that easy to remain anonymous when she’s married one very well known and loved musician.
David Ferris is a member of the very successful rock group, Stage Dive. He might have married Evelyn after a wild night in Vegas but he is very serious about keeping this marriage real, as Evelyn is the most grounded and beautiful person he has ever met. It’s not going to be easy, and there is so much that they will need to work out logistically, but he wants to stay married and keep Evelyn by his side for always.
It’s amazing how musicians are now providing some of the biggest challenges for love and redemption. A bad boy rock star, prime material to be reformed and saved. Once not even considered the stuff of heroes, now the long-haired, tattooed wild boys of rock are a dream come true for romantics everywhere when they find that special woman who can steady their lives and provide the lodestone for their wandering lifestyle. If one falls in love and swears undying love. Sigh! What a wonderful dream come true. Kylie Scott has taken this gorgeous premise and created the ultimate HEA with a sensible young woman and a bad boy looking for someone who will see him for himself and not the aura of the rock star. It’s a sensitive and sexy pairing and a beautiful story. I can’t wait for more as I just know all four of these bad boys are going to find the love of a wonderful woman who will save them from drifting through life alone. I have joined the thousands of excited readers who want to follow the journey of the Stage Dive band as they each succumb to love. So hand me the next one please. I’m hooked! :)
PS. I’m amused and intrigued by the old-fashioned names used in such a modern story. Sweet and innovative move. Well done Kylie.
