Play by Kylie Scott

PlayWhy I read it:  I received a copy from the author.

What it’s about: (from Goodreads)  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?

What worked for me (and what didn’t):  The first book in this series, Lick, made my Favourites of 2013 list and not just because I had a “cameo” as a slutty (in the sex-positive way of course) groupie in it either.  I think I liked Play a little better than Lick even though I ended up at the same grade. There was really only one thing that gave me pause in Play – and actually, I fully expect to see it worked out in future books of the series.

Cover Reveal – Play by Kylie Scott

Regular readers will know I have a *special* relationship with Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series, so it only seemed right for me to join in the big cover reveal of the second book in the series, Play, featuring Mal the sexy, bad boy drummer with an image problem.  Without further ado, I give you:

Lick Blog Tour – Interview with Kylie Scott

Lick Blog Tour

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 favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.

Today I’d like to welcome author Kylie Scott to the blog.  She’s here to answer some questions about her new book Lick.  I don’t normally do blog tours, but as you can tell from my review, this is a very special book.  **Also, look out for the giveaway details at the end of this post.**
I’m sure in your blog tour you will be asked a lot of questions about Evelyn and David but I wanted to focus today on one of the secondary characters who really stood out for me.  What can you tell me about Kaetrin?  She’s not in the book all that much, but she’s a total scene stealer.
I know right? I think in a way Kaetrin really carried the book. It’s subtle, but it’s there.

Lick by Kylie Scott

Why I read it: I received a review copy from the publisher.  But (wait for it) this was also a part of my prize for winning the “name the band” competition.  (Actually, the name wasn’t terribly original, the series was already called Stage Dive – I just piped up and said that would be an awesome band name).  The other part of my prize was that a secondary character in the book was named after me.  Kaetrin is an (awesome) (slightly slutty – but in a sex positive way) groupie with an AMAZING rack. LOLOLOL!    The author very kindly asked me to pick her hair colour and the colour of her dress for her second appearance in the book.  We had a lot of fun on Twitter with it.  I told her to go for broke – but please just make me hot!  (And she did, so: thank you Kylie!). She’s not in the book very much and while I was tickled to see my name in print, that wasn’t the reason I liked the book.  Fortunately, it turned out that it’s a book I’m very happy to have my name in, even if Book Kaetrin is a bit of a skank (I say that with love).

What worked for me (and what didn’t):
I’m a hero-centric reader but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good heroine.  I was actually pretty impressed with Evelyn.  She holds her own against celebrities and rock stars when she’s out of her depth and in unfamiliar territory.  There was a certain feistiness to her which appealed very much to me.
