A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).
I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice. Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.
Deep is the fourth and final book in Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series and she definitely ended the series with a bang with Ben's story. Ben is the bass player of Stage Dive, and he's known as the type that doesn't do relationships and will never really settle down. Unfortunately, his world is about to change with a one night stand.
Lizzy has been infatuated with the sexy, tall, bearded bass player since the moment she met the band, but Ben only wants to be friends. He has reasons on why he wants to be just friends and that reason is Mal. (Oh boy Mal definitely doesn't make it easy for Ben in this story) Lizzy tries everything to gain his attention, but he's been hardheaded and stubborn, until a trip to Las Vegas changes everything.
Lizzy and Ben's world is going to turn a 360 with one single test that could bring them together or separate them further. It's definitely up to them to decide which one it will. Or in the case of reading Deep, you'll realize it's actually up to the one sexy tattooed bass player to decide their future. (Ben you definitely were a jerk at times with deciding your future)
Ben is the hard-headed stubborn rockstar of Stage Dive. The man can't make decisions on what he wants really, but he definitely knows how to piss off Lizzy constantly. I felt for Lizzy in the story because here it is, she just wants his attention and to show him how much she cares about him. Unfortunately, Ben is too scared to do anything. I could've throttled the man at times for Lizzy. Lizzy had a huge support system with the other Stage Dive members and I truly enjoyed having all the rest of Stage Dive and their girls in Deep. I definitely enjoyed reading more of Mal. (He will always be a favorite of mine). He's crazy humor and downright straightforward personality makes him irresistible and SEXY! Anne is one lucy woman!
Kylie writes the story by starting off in present time and then going back to when Ben and Lizzy hooked up. This definitely made the story flow very well and I definitely wanted to find out how these two finally hooked up. Poor Lizzy though throughout the story had to deal with so much.
She even knew how to handle Ben's obnoxious crazy sister. (You'll definitely want to hurt her when she is comes forward in the story.)
In the end, Deep was an amazing ending to a very addicting series that I definitely plan on reading again. I'm sad that Stage Dive has come to an end, but I know Kylie is writing another series I know I will enjoy too. She's one author I automatically always buy her books because I know she'll write some addicting characters that I will adore, and unforgettable stories that will require being read again and again.
I give this book 4.5 stars and highly recommend it to readers that enjoy rock star romance books. Just be warned Mal is MINE! Yup…he won me over since the beginning and he'll always be unforgettable. =)
