Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated follow-up to international bestseller Lick.Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast-at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn't plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn't count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she'd ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls-especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn't end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?


This one was probably my least favorite in the series.  Only because I ended up getting annoyed with Mal.

I adored Mal in Lick.  He provided the best comic relief.  In this one I think everything was too much of a joke to him.  I understand he was going through some things and people tend to be the funny guy to run from their own problems, but it seemed a little extreme with Mal.

I love Anne.  She is funny, and tries her best not to let Mal run all over her.  She’s always had a crush on Mal, and being his pretend girlfriend is almost too much when she begins to actually like him.

I loved the funny moments in this book.  There’s a broken bed incident, and it had me laughing so loud.  I also liked how the band groups together when they feel like one of their own is hurting.  It’s great the friendship these guys have.

Even though this installment isn’t my favorite, it definitely makes me appreciate each of the characters throughout the series.
