Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas's plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

Lick was everything I expected and more. I love this type of stories. I just needed to read: rock star and married in Las Vegas, and I knew I had to read it. I have a huge crush on rock stars, so Kylie Scott's story rocked my world!

For the first time in a story like this, you don't feel sorry for the girl. Because we know how intense these rock stars can be and not to speak about their lives... But it turns out that the one we end up pitying is not other than David Ferris. He married Evelyn in Las Vegas because she was different and she made him want to be better. And then, the next morning, he finds out that she doesn't remember anything. Not him. Not their wedding. 

If you have read about this hot rock star we should have hear a loud and incredulous: "WHAT?!". Because ladies, David is not only a hot rock star, he's the sweetest guy I've ever read about. What girl could not remember him?

I'm glad that the author could express all the feelings the rock star was feeling when he found out about her supposed wife situation. He was mad. And with a reason. However, Ev's personality makes that David gives her a second chance. If not to fix things between them, to end up in good terms.

As I said before, I love David. He has this good attitude not expected at all from a rock star and has this tender side that would make any fan faint. Without losing his alpha male side, he also shows to Ev his rock side and how good they can be together. Making every single reader go crazy for the Stage Dive rock star. 

Evelyn, on the other hand, is everything the girls that surround every day the Stage Dive boys are not. She's kind, she's a good person and she's not seeking any profit out of her relationship with the Stage Dive member.

The relationship is simply amazing. They decide to be out of the craziness of David's life and not to be on the spotlight, just for a couple of days, see how they can work things out. Those days in Monterey are simply fabulous for the couple and you get to see why they decided to act on an impulse in Las Vegas and get married. Away from all the craziness, they discover a side that promise a happy ending after all.

However, there's also a little bit of drama in the story. The past always gets in the way and in this case David's past is what destroys their happy bubble. It couldn't be all a flowery path, so their relationship gets more real when have all the drama threatening their relationship. It was heartbreaking? Yes. However, it was worth it. Not giving anything away.

I love Lick and I am definitely a Stage Dive fan. Kylie Scott wrote an amazing story and if you like rock stars and romance stories with a wild and tender side, this is definitely a must read. And I highly recommend this book to other readers. Give David Ferris a chance to melt your heart!
