Review

5-stars

As a follower of this series, I grew curious about Ben’s story. He appeared to be such a great characters that I wanted to see if there was more to him that what I had glimpsed in previous installments. Thankfully, I was right and then some!

Lizzy is Anne’s sister, Mal’s wife. We met her in Play while Mal and Anne were getting together. She seemed to be a great character to get to know, but I admit that I didn’t pay her much attention. But that was mainly because I was so engrossed in Mal and Anne’s story that everything and everyone fell my the wayside!

Now she finds herself pregnant and trying to deal with the repercussions of her one-night stand with Ben. Ha! Talk about a surprise! I was not expecting that at all. But then again, Kylie Scott always manages to surprise me one way or another.

This time around, I found surprises in every turn. Be it Ben’s reluctance to commit, Lizzy’s determination to make it on her own regardless of Ben’s good intentions or the powerful chemistry that existed between these two.

Sure, the one-night stand pregnancy trope has been done many times before, but it’s always nice to see it done a different way. What I enjoyed most about this story was that it wasn’t all prettied up for the sake of a happily ever after. There were plenty of outbursts and rampant emotions. But there were also a lot of honest interactions that made a relationship between these two difficult to achieve.

“Why are you here?” I reached back behind my head and grabbed his wrists, stilling him. “Ben?”
“Because apparently I’m shit at staying away from you.”
“Then I guess we have a problem.” Our fingers meshed, holding on tight.
“That’s putting it fucking mildly.”

Ben sure had his moments. Pffft! I lost the count on how many times I wanted to throttle him. Sometimes he came across as a real jerk and I just could not stand it. However, these moments were blended with raw, honest ones and lust-fueled ones too. So it made for a great balance and a perfect chance to get to know him better.

As for Lizzy, well she was fun and I enjoyed her journey. From the very beginning when she found out she was pregnant all through to the end when she stood for what she believed regardless of the consequences, Lizzy kept me interested in her story. I enjoyed the process of getting to know her and I especially enjoyed watching her grow and mature.

As I stated before, the chemistry between Ben and Lizzy was very powerful and sparks never failed to fly whenever they were together. However, what cemented my belief that these two were perfect for each other was the way they communicated honestly. She never pressured Ben and although clueless to his feelings towards Lizzy Ben never failed to provide her support. Maybe his methods weren’t perfect, but his intentions were always in the right place and I had to admire that about him.

“What do I do?”
“Give me a chance to catch up.”
I just stared at him, trying to keep my cool. Took two to tango, yada yada.
“I’m serious.” His shoulders heaved up and down. “Just give me a chance to catch up and I promise, Lizzy, I will have your back.”

Keep in mind that although this is the fourth book in the Stage Drive series it can be read as a stand alone. Characters from the other books make an appearance and come to play part in the story, but the author made sure that everything was clear for the reader to follow along.

For me this story was a treat to read. I got to appease my curiosity about Ben, go on tour with the band and visit with some of my favorite characters. Mal still cracks me up and continues to be my favorite, but all the others were awesome too.

All in all, an awesome conclusion to the series that tells an amazing love story. It was fun, romantic and everything in between. Well done Kylie Scott! I will miss these guys, but I am so very glad I had a chance to read heir stories.

“Relax.”
“You try relaxing with a huge boner rubbing against your back. I’m trying to break up with you – not that we’re even together – and your penis is not helping.”

Excerpt

“C’mon. How have you been, really? What’s been going on with you?” he pushed. I frowned at him and he frowned right back. “Liz, please.”

I groaned in defeat. “All right, I suck.”

“Why do you suck?”

“So very many reasons.” I pushed my hair back from my face—no more hiding. “Pregnancy sucks. It’s natural, my ass. I finally stop throwing up, but I’m tired all the time. Giving up coffee was horrendous. None of my clothes fit right because of these stupid breasts, and they ache constantly. I have to pee like every thirty seconds, and then to top it off, I cry every time the Healthy Hound ad comes on. It’s ridiculous”

Little wrinkles appeared either side of his nose. “You cry at a dog food ad?”

“Yes. The puppies jump all over each other to get to their mother and it’s just so beautiful, with their cute little tails wagging and everything.”

He just stared at me.

“I know its psycho, Ben. Believe me, I’m well aware of this.”

“Hey, it’s fine.” He covered a smile with his hand. Too late, the bastard.

“You try dealing with all these hormones going apeshit. Crap. Apeshoot.”

“Apeshoot?”

“I’m trying not to swear,” I explained. “You want the first word our child comes out with to be something bad?”

“No. Gotcha.” The man was incredibly bad at hiding a grin. “No swearing.”

Excerpt

She didn’t have to look up to know Jagger was watching her. She could feel his gaze burning into her skin, but instead of intimidating her, his frank interest made her bold. Lifting her head, she shook off her fear, and met his stare full-on, smiling before she dropped her gaze. Confident, not challenging. That was the key.

And from the smile that spread across his lips when she reached the table, she could tell she’d played it just right.

“Vexy.” The deep rumble of his voice vibrated through her body, sending a rush of heat straight to her core. And he’d remembered to use her road name.

“Nice to see you again.” And she meant it. She’d been fantasizing about him all week, mentally stripping off his clothes, running her hands over the breadth of his shoulders, his massive chest, those taut abs, and then lower, tugging off his belt, her own heat rising as she ripped open his fly. Power, barely contained, beneath her, above her. Inside—

Jagger gave a satisfied rumble, as if her words—or her face—had settled something in his mind.

“What can I get you?”

“I’ll start with some of this.” The Devil Dog seated be- side Jagger pinched Arianne’s ass.

Without hesitation, Arianne grabbed his wrist and twisted his arm behind his back. “I’m afraid my ass isn’t on the menu.”

Wham. Jagger thudded a knife on the table between the outstretched fingers of the biker’s free hand. “You don’t fucking touch her. You don’t talk to her. You don’t look at her. And you sure as fuck don’t disrespect her.”

The table stilled. If he had been any other man, she might have thanked him verbally, or she might have pointed out that his actions were dramatic and unnecessary, since she had the situation in hand. But he wasn’t just any man. He was an outlaw biker president, and his actions weren’t directed solely at saving her ass from a squeeze. In that brief exchange, he’d laid down the law for the bikers on both sides of the table. First, he was in charge. And second, Arianne belonged to him.

So she gave him a simple nod of thanks. Her response seemed to please him. His face softened almost imperceptibly as he unclasped her hand from the Devil Dog’s wrist, then tugged until she released her captive. Her skin tingled at his touch, and when he rubbed this thumb lightly over her knuckles, she felt each stroke as a throb between her thighs.

Excerpt

“I think right now the one thing you need to do is sleep, darlin’.” He nuzzled her neck, pressing his lips where it curved into her shoulder. “It’s late and you never look like you sleep as well as you should. Tomorrow is soon enough for you to worry about how somebody else’s tragedy has to ruin your life.”

“It’s already ruined mine.” Slowly, she turned around and lifted her hands, curling them in the soft, worn material of his shirt, pressing her head against his chest. The smell of him flooded her head. Warm man, something spicy—the soap he wore or aftershave—she liked it. Rubbing her cheek against him, she murmured, “It’s ruined my life for years and I’m tired of it. I don’t want to let it ruin my life anymore. That’s why I’m trying to figure out what to do next.”

“I already told you. Sleep.” He rubbed his lips against hers and then said quietly, a thread of steel in his voice, “Tomorrow, we find answers. For now, though…”

He slid his hands down her back, cupped them around her hips. He boosted her up and when she twined her legs around him, it was a sweet, sweet bliss. “Maybe the answer to that is think about you. You’ve lived your life day by day, always thinking about keeping your secrets. We need to figure out how you can reclaim your life, but you can’t do that in the dead of night. So for now…think about you. What you need.”

He dipped his head and caught her lower lip between his, bit her lightly.

“What do you need?”

A slow shudder wracked her body and he decided he liked it. As he lifted his head to peer down into her eyes, she stared up at him, her eyes cloudy and heated. “Are you suggesting that maybe the answer to this lies in getting naked?”

Review

4 stars

3.5 stars

Melanie is trying to find herself so she left her corporate job behind in lieu of exploring her artistic side, plus it helped to distance herself from her boss who she’s halfway in love with.

Rafe was Melanie’s boss. He’s a business man by day and a rockstar on the side. He feels it’s his duty to attend to his ‘legacy’ although he would rather be playing his music.

After a chance meeting, their mutual attraction comes to the surface bringing forth needs, doubts and hesitation long forgotten.

Can’t say much about the story per se since this was such a short read and only served to introduce the characters and some of their story. However, I will say that it does have great potential.

The characters captured my attention, the concept was intriguing and there was a connection there that could lead to something interesting. It helped that Rafe and Melanie’s chemistry was ever-present.

All in all, an interesting first episode in the serial. I can’t wait to see where it leads.

*I received a copy of this title through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.

 

Excerpt

As Melanie stepped outside, Rafe behind her, she regretted that this time with him was about to end. The tattoo had been painful, but not as bad as she’d anticipated. It had been so nice, though, having him there to literally hold her hand through it.

“Would you like a ride home?” he asked.

She gazed at him in his jeans and tank top, tattoos visible over his chest and flowing down his arms and she couldn’t help laughing. “I just got a mental picture of you dressed just as you are now climbing into that shiny, black limo.”

He shrugged. “Sure, why not? Would you like to ride in the limo?”

She had always wanted to. It seemed so glamorous and luxurious. It would be a taste of how the other half lived.

“Or, since it’s such a nice day, we could ride my motorcycle.”

She raised her eyebrow. “You have a motorcycle?”

“That’s right. It’s over there.” He nodded his head toward a big, gleaming, burgundy Harley parked on the street in front of the shop. “But I know some women are a little intimidated by them.”

Melanie laughed. “Not me. I’ve always wanted to ride one.” She walked to the big machine and ran her fingers over the soft, black, leather seat. “I would love to ride with you.”

His lips turned up in a devilish grin. “Really?”

She glanced at him and realized her statement might have sounded a little . . . sexual.

Suddenly, an image washed through her of straddling Rafe, and slowly moving up and down on him, his big erection buried deep inside her. A wild surge of hormones vibrated through her.

As her cheeks blossomed with heat, she flicked her gaze to the seat again. “Um, yeah. It would be a real adventure. Then I can cross two items off my bucket list—getting a tattoo and riding a motorcycle.”

“I never knew you had such a wild side.”

Before she could respond, he opened the back compartment and handed her a helmet, then pulled one on himself.

She opened her bag and pulled out the light sweater she’d brought with her and started to pull it on. Ever the gentleman, Rafe grabbed it and held it up for her so she could easily push her arms into the sleeves. As she zipped it up, he pulled a black leather jacket from the storage bin and pulled it on.

Oh, man, he looked incredibly hot in denim and leather. He mounted the bike and she climbed on behind him.

Once she was settled, he glanced back at her. “You sure you want to go straight home?”
