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?
My Review: OMG Kylie is freaking amazing. I loved Play and tore through it so quick.
Mal is the drummer. And well you can guess what he's like from the first book. But what we get to see this time around, is just how amazing and kind he is. Yeah, he can be a little hard to handle at times, but once you see how Anne enters the picture and helps him out, his soft side comes out.
So Mal and Anne meet at a party, talk and well, Mal made good on his promise. He moved into Anne's place! Without telling her. But he did buy furniture and pay the rent, so maybe its okay? Well for kind and normal Anne, it was a bit freaky, but she quickly warmed up and got used to it all afterwards. It's when Mal wasn't around, that you could see the side of Anne that needed Mal. Together they bring out the best in each other. They have many bumps and fights along the way.
The end made every emotion so worth it! I'm so happy with the way it ended, and I couldn't see it going any other way. Mal and Anne finally realized how much they love each other. They start their own life together, right near the other rock star couple.
