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.
I love rockstar books. I haven't read many of these types of books, but the ones I have read were quick, entertaining and fun. Lick wasn't an exception. It wasn't the best book ever, but I liked it. It also made me laugh (out loud) many times, which is always a plus. I will definitely read the next books.
Lick had a few flaws, which is why I couldn't give it more than 3 stars. 3.5 at the highest actually. I just had a few problems with the main character and plot. Evelyn (main character) didn't have any debt as far as I was concerned. She was nice enough, I guess, but I just couldn't connect with her. The plot was a bit obvious. I knew pretty early on where it was going to go. I've read it so many times before in other books. I had hoped it would go a little differently this time around. Also, I wanted to know all that had happened in Vegas. I was hoping for some flashbacks but we really didn't get anything like that, which was too bad.
But aside from all that, I liked the book. I liked David, although I think he needs to manage his anger and jealously more. But other than that, he was a pretty likable character. Not my favorite though. That was one of David's band members, the drummer (no surprise there), Mal. I loved him. He was hilarious and fun. Lucky for me the next book is about him, so I can't wait to read that!
The writing was pretty good too. It flowed quickly and was easy to read. Lick was one of those books that you don't mind picking up and keep reading because it was such an entertaining book. I'm looking forward to the next one! Go Stage Dive!
"I feel your manpain, bro. Really, I do. I mean, all you wanted was a girl that wouldn't kiss your ass for once and now you're pissed at her for the same damn reason. It's complicated, right?"
"Seriously, I fucking love your wife, man. She's awesome. Can I have her?"
"Love isn't always smooth or straightforward. It can be messy and painful, he said. "Doesn't mean it isn't still the most incredible thing that can ever happen to you. Doesn't mean I'm not crazy about you."
