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 can't end well. No matter how hot he is. Or can it?

My Thoughts:

Once again, Kylie Scott has knocked one out of the ballpark with her rockers we love to love. Let me first say that Mal is absolutely delicious and I just loved him! He was fun and free-spirited, but he had depth, too, and I really enjoyed getting to know him. The way he enters Anne's life and just steamrolls it is so fun and so totally Mal. He is a larger than life character and it takes a woman of Anne's strength to keep up with him. She is the perfect foil for him and it was a blast seeing how she rolled with the punches with him. Together, they are just magic.

If you haven't read this series yet, you should start now with Lick, Dave and Ev's story, the one that started it all. This is where we first meet Mal and believe me, it's a fun trip! I knew from the start I was going to like him with the way he interacted with everyone, the way he welcomed her into the fold. I just wanted to know more about him. I'm so happy to say that his story didn't disappoint, is a great follow up to Lick and a great lead in to Lead, which will tell Jimmy's story and let me tell you, I can't wait for that one!
