Don’t miss a beat with the fourth and final novel in the USA Today bestselling Stage Dive series from Kylie Scott.

Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins’ ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben’s the only man she’s ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn’t looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She’s his best friend’s little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he’s not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he’s always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible…but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

Nancy’s thoughts:
five-stars
  Complete Entertainment Stars!

I am such a huge fan of this series. I love the humour and the romance altogether. And Ms. Kylie Scott always create such wonderful characters! I was most definitely entertained and more!

Lizzy, Anne’s younger sister, had this huge crush and immense attraction towards Ben from the very first time she saw him…. So, she decided to pursue him while Ben tried to stay away from Lizzy even when he was just as equally attracted to her… Except that one time, that one night in Vegas… and they acted on said attraction. What’s one night right? Well, it only took that one night to get Lizzy pregnant!

And the problem here is Ben,the Bass player of Sky Dive, because he has commitment-phobe… he doesn’t date, much less have a girlfriend… And he wouldn’t change his lifestyle for anything and anyone. Now comes a baby!!!

It was easy to relate and fall in love with Lizzy’s character. She has such charming personality! Her thoughts had me laughing. A hormonal Lizzy is double the fun! All in all, she really is a smart lady, she can read Ben so well. It’s just that… she hopes. But she also knows when she’s had enough.

Ben, no matter how much of an ass his character was towards Lizzy, I really couldn’t hate him. He sounds more like a boy afraid someone will take his toys away from him. 😉 But, he really does have his reasons, or so he thinks. Men can be so dumb yet adorable, and that’s basically how I picture Ben. 😉


And speaking of boys, I mean men 😀 … Mal, Jimmy and David with their respective better halves, of course, are all in full force here too! With Mal stealing the scene now and then. He definitely had me laughing out loud. And I finally got to read about Anne and Mal’s wedding! I think that was a bonus!


I just totally enjoyed all their funny spontaneous convos!

There was just the right amount of angst that triggered all sorts of emotions! One minute it had me laughing, then laughing some more, then sad, then angry (but never angry enough when it comes to Ben). Then it had me tearing up some… Then it had me smiling in the end. 😀 Perfect!

Don’t forget the hot factor… there is a lot of “fire-trucking” involved. 😉

Beautifully, beautifully written! I have nothing but high praise!

Silvana’s thoughts :

four-stars

Well my thoughts about this mirror Nancy’s, I loved it; Honestly I put this off thinking that I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as I did.

Lizzy was a character I could not help but like, her thoughts conveyed her emotions in a way that wasn’t whiny and there  were times where I was laughing while reading them.  I did feel for our Lizzy, but it was nothing that she didn’t bring on herself from the beginning.

I was never Ben’s biggest fan and I thought he was a bit of jerk in book 1, well he is still a jerk but one I grew to love while reading this installment. Ms Scott stayed true to his character; there was growth and yet it wasn’t done too quickly as to make the reader need to suspend their disbelief, in order to enjoy the book. Ben took his time getting used to a situation he never wanted in the first place, and while it was frustrating for me as a reader, it was believable.

As with all the previous books, this romance was the right combination of angst, drama, and humor without feeling overwhelmed.

“Ben, I don’t want to take your freedom. I just want a place in your world. An important one.” He craned his neck, tipping my chin up to make me look at him at the same time. “Sweetheart, you’ve been important since day one. Only girl I kept coming back to”

It was so good to see the other couples and where they are at in terms of relationships and life, Jimmy was quite a surprise; His growth as a character is even more apparent in this installment. I may have mentioned in my previous reviews how much I love Mal, well this hasn’t changed, he is still my favorite character.

“He’s definitely going to be relieved to get out of the pet hotel. That’s one silver lining at least. The last few times I’ve called, he’s flat-out refused to speak to me.” “He’s a dog, Anne. He can’t talk.” More frowning. “But he used to make these little yipping noises and bark at me. You know what I mean. I’m worried this has given him abandonment issues. He’s a very sensitive animal. He’s like Mal, deep down, in a way.”

To say I’m sad to see this series end is an understatement. The author managed to deliver a memorable series, well written, beautifully delivered plots, amazing relatable characters, traditional tales of romance with new and funny twists.
