Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott

Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott
This is an adult contemporary romance novel (Rated NC-17)
(Three and a half Rocking Hearts)
Book Summary
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 as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, 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 for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favorite son is sure to be a wild ride.
My Review
Let me tell you, I wanted to love this book. The set up was interesting. Not totally new as it reminds me of a scene in the Hangover. But I certainly was interest in author’s take on it.
The technical aspect of the writing was good. No complaints there.
The overall plot of the story was your normal romance with ups and downs. And I enjoyed the by play between the couple. I’ll admit, I was in the story and listened all the way through.
Major problem though. It had the unforgivable. The one thing I can’t overlook. INSTA LOVE. I’m sorry. You’ll never convince me you can fall in love (not true love) in a day or two or three. You can begin falling in love, infatuation can occur, in lust, but not LOVE. And because it’s unbelievable, it’s hard to totally enjoy the story.
Add to the sometime predictable actions of the character where even I could finish their lines. An interruption that led to a “realization” that the actions from earlier really weren’t either of their desires (eye rolls). I hate interruptions (to sex), I’ll forgive one and I did. I only marked off one star for insta love. 
But there were other plot holes like her brother having his own place yet he ended up living with someone else with no mention of what happened to his place. (I over simplified as to not give away spoilers. But those who’ve read will understand). There were a couple of others. I didn’t even take off for that.
Audio Review
Andi Arnt did a good job at narration.
Overall, it was a decent read. If you are okay with Insta Love, I think you might enjoy this one. Personally, I enjoyed Sinners on Tour and the Thoughtless series better if you want rock and roll.
My book boyfriend is MAL. But I’m going to give you David anyway.
