It’s finally LIVE!!!!! The third book in the STAGE DIVE series by Kylie Scott is ready and waiting for you to devour, and devour it you will! I couldn’t get enough of Jimmy and Lena. Check out my review, and one of my favourite scenes from the book in an excerpt. Enjoy ❤
Series: Stage Dive #3
Author: Kylie Scott
Genre: Rock Star Romance
Age: New Adult
Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic rock star romance series from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, author of Lick and Play.
As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it’s booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.
Lena’s not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.
After reading and loving all three of the currently released Stage Dive books, I think it’s safe to say I’m a certified groupie. These guys are addictive, and lead singer Jimmy is no different.
I have to say, in LICK and PLAY, I didn’t like Jimmy. In all honesty, I thought he was a dick, but I was interested in seeing how his book turned out because of how much I loved his band mates. And I’m so glad because LEAD is another hit from the mega talented Kylie Scott.
The story didn’t go how I was expecting at all! I figured that Lena would hate Jimmy to start with, and learn to love him, but that wasn’t the case and what did in fact happen was so much better.
I loved Lena. Completely and utterly loved her! She is not only my favourite female character from the STAGE DIVE series, but she’s one of the very best (if not the best) heroines that I’ve ever read about. She was a real kickass kind of girl and I loved how she was just like us. She’s curvy, got attitude, and she fangirls over Jimmy Ferris just like we do. Did I mention that I love her?
And Jimmy. The hashtag #OMGJimmy is perfect because OMG I love him, too! And as I said before, I really didn’t like him in the previous books so that should show how great he is in LEAD. Though he doesn’t quite take the lead in the battle of my favourite fictional rock star, he’s a very close second behin the one and only Mal, who was once again hilarious in the latest book of the series.
Kylie Scott never fails to get me completely wrapped up in this series. From the quick and witty banter, to the character development, to the sad moments, and the times that have swooning so hard that if I was stood up I’d surely fall down. I crave the stories she gives us through the Stage Dive members, and it can honestly say that I don’t think I will ever get enough.
So that’s three down and one to go. We’ve seen band mates David, Mal, and now Jimmy go through the good times and the bad, and next up we have Ben. Though I’m of course incredibly excited for his book, I also don’t want the series to end. I am praying that Ms. Scott has a littles surprise up her sleeve because four books are just not enough for this greedy Stage Dive Groupie!

“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”
“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.
“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”
“Can’t find it anywhere…”
“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”
“Sure you haven’t seen it?”
“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low.
I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.
He frowned. “No.”
“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like some creepy perv?”
“Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.
“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.
“Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.”
Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”
“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”
Kylie is a long time fan of romance, rock music, and B-grade horror films. Based in Queensland, Australia with her two children and one delightful husband, she reads, writes and never dithers around on the internet.
