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.
I swear to all the book gods, this series gets better and better with each book that Kylie writes. Jimmy and Lena were just so awesome. I don't know what it was. I don't know if it is the angst, the unrequited love..okay, I think it may have been the smartassness, the banter. It was spectacular. I also love that Lena got to see this other side of Jimmy, the side no one else got to see. And I love that Lena, knowing how she felt, knew she had to be there for Jimmy because it was what he needed. Their relationship started out so bad. I was so unsure about how they would make it, how they would get along, but I ended up freaking loving it. I have to say though, I kind of wish she would've opened up and admitted what her ex said . I would have loved to see what Jimmy said about that. Jimmy and Lena always have the best come backs right on the tips of their tongues...that's not all they do well with their tongues. o_O
This book is a typical Stage Dive book. We get our main characters, but yet we still get to see the other guys and girls. We get to see how their relationships progress after their 'story' ended. You also have this the undeniably sexy man, and let's be honest, that's one of the major reasons we love the books. Kyle knows how to write the best damn broken sexy men. They steam up your kindle and break your heart but always return to help you put it back together. Jimmy, doesn't disappoint. Lena sure has her work cut out for her helping fix this broken man, but damn if she isn't up for the job.
I give this book 4.5 hearts

“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”
“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.
“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”
Can’t find it anywhere…”
“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”
“Sure you haven’t seen it?”
“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low.
I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.
He frowned. “No.”
“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like some creepy perv?”
“Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.
“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.
“Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.”
Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”
“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”
