Series: Stage Dive #2
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 couldn’t end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?
The Cover: Mmmm, what a beautiful cover. While I really liked the cover to Lick with angsty, dark and brooding David on the cover, I think the redesigned cover is totally wicked. Who wouldn't want a naked, tattooed, hot man stretched out on their bed?
The Plot: Play was a very well written story that moved along quickly, barely leaving you time to catch your breath. Lots of action, sex hot enough to leave the reader gasping, and a contemporary story that had me laughing, cheering, and crying throughout. Another awesome story by Kylie Scott.
The Characters: Kylie's characters were very well written and fun. I loved Mal, even though his mood swings made my head spin. Ann was a pretty kick-ass character, once she developed a back bone. Any one who can handle Mal would have to be! Their love story is pretty amazing and I really enjoyed watching it develope. The supporting characters were very well done as well. I liked that Ev and David and other members of Stage Dive were a major part of the story.
Is it Worth Reading?: Oh ya, definitely! This was one series that I will go back to. Play was such an intense read, I could not put it down. It reminds readers that love may be hard work, but it can see you through hard times. I definitely recommend Play to readers of contemporary and give it 4 out of 5 crossbows.
