Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

The lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it whether it's booze or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself stuck with a new assistant hired by the record company to keep him out of trouble. He doesn't need or want a babysitter. Especially one that looks like Lena.

Lena's not willing to take any shit from the sexy rocker she's been hired to assist and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite the sizzling chemistry that sparks between them every time they're in the same room. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing to ever happen to him. Readers won't want to miss the third book in this New Adult series about ordinary young women who fall in love with rock stars.

Oh my hotness, I love Jimmy! Not as much as Mal but still... damn! This was a great great great book. As always with a Stage Dive book I read it in no time. There's something about the way Kylie Scott writes, that makes me want to keep reading until I have finished the story. I loved it.

I love Lena. I really liked reading about her. She was funny, clever, witty and (almost) never at a loss for words. I also liked how in the prologue we found out how exactly she got the job with Jimmy. After that the story jumps forward two months and I think that's great. I liked that Lena and Jimmy knew each other for a while and weren't strangers or anything. It's different from the other books in that way.

And Jimmy? What can I possibly say about him. We met this huge drugged-boozed up jerk in Lick but he made such a change since he got sober. You just can't help but feel for him and everything he went through not only with his addiction but also in his childhood. No wonder he's so closed off to anyone. He's (after Mal) my favorite Stage Dive member. Reading this book about him was fantastic and not to mention hot. Yeah, Kylie Scott can write some very sexy scenes (even though we had to wait a bit for the juicy stuff to happen...).

I have to say, though, that I enjoyed it a lot more than Lick and I enjoyed it a little bit less than Play. But it's still an entertaining, enjoyable and steamy read!

Favorite Quotes

Jimmy Ferris as an illegal, dangerous, controlled substance. Funnily enough, I could see it. The man affected me on all the levels no matter how much I tried to resist, damn it.
He smiled at me, he actually double dimple smiled at me. Crap. Not only did my knees weaken but my toes curled it was so stunning, star shine and moonbeams couldn't compare. Unicorns could take a flying fuck.
