Review: Deep (A Stage Dive Novel) by Kylie Scott



Deep by Kylie Scott
(Book #4 in the Stage Dive Series)
Published by St. Martin's Griffin


Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins' ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn't looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She's his best friend's little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible... but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

I LOVE series like this one. I am a huge fan of the companion novel, because I always want to know what is going on with characters that I love, but it's also nice to see other people in the world get their own stories. This is actually the fourth book in the Stage Dive series, but it can definitely be read as a standalone. You will get some spoilers from previous books, because all of the characters make appearances, but this is a complete story on it's own. I have actually only read books 2-4 in this series, because I didn't realize I was starting with a second in the series when I picked up Lick (it has one of my favorite tropes, so I didn't bother to look it up before I started it), but I've loved every one of the books I have a read and have big plans to get my hands on book one sometime soon!

I actually think this one might be my favorite of the ones I've read so far. While the surprise baby trope isn't necessarily my favorite, I didn't mind it here, because Lizzy and Ben were the two characters that stood out to me most in the other books. I was so desperately hoping that they would get their own story and I am so glad they did. Lizzy is fiercely independent and can be absolutely tough as nails, but she's still got a vulnerable side and a huge soft spot for a sexy, bearded bassist. Try as she might, and even she knows it's in her best interest, she can't seem to keep from gravitating back to Ben time and again. Ben is a mess. I don't think that poor guy truly understand real feelings and what to do with them and while he has a hard time staying away from Lizzy, he also has a hard time staying with her, too. 

This book is full of sass, sweetness, jealous rock star outbursts, all seeing security guards, over protective family members, and seriously, sexy fun times. If you are a fan of romance and you can appreciate an awesome, tight-knit cast of characters, I definitely recommend checking out any of the Stage Dive novels.
