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?


ReviewLoved it! I mean I absolutely loved it! Kylie Scott, you enchantress. I’m on my knees, doing the “we’re not worthy” thing. I’m worshipping at the altar of you. Play was fantastic. Hilariously wonderful. Whew! Now that that’s done, let me tell you all about the book.

Mal is the drummer for Stage Dive and a bit of a man whore and a bit of a hot mess. He’s dealing with a boatload of problems, from changes in the band, family issues and the need to run from it all. He’s in the shadows at a party and sees a girl talking on the phone. She’s explaining the latest of her bad luck woes to someone on the other line. Her story intrigues him and he sees her vulnerability. It sparks something in him. She calms the demons he’s facing. He provokes her into a small argument, much to the shock of the rest of the party. Mal is pretty happy go lucky and gets along with everyone, so fighting with a woman is strange for him.

Anne has had a string of bad luck lately. To make matters worse, she’s talked into going to a party, where her crush has just heard about her newest catastrophe. After he tells her she needs to quit letting people take advantage of her, she yells at him. In front of everyone at the party. Later at the party, he tells everyone he and Anne are going to start dating. She is shocked and flabbergasted at his announcement . When she gets home from work the next day, he’s moved into her apartment with her! How can she keep her composure through this charade?!

Kylie Scott gives us a bad boy hero whose heart is about to break, a Plain Jane heroine who finally gets what she deserves, a best friend who realized what he lost too late, friends who will sacrifice for those they love, a story that makes you laugh out loud and sex scenes that you need fan for. Is there anything else you could possibly need?
