#Review #BlogTour – STRONG by Kylie Scott

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kylie Scott comes a new story in her Stage Dive series…

When the girl of your dreams is kind of a nightmare.

As head of security to Stage Dive, one of the biggest rock bands in the world, Sam Knowles has plenty of experience dealing with trouble. But spoilt brat Martha Nicholson just might be the worst thing he’s ever encountered. The beautiful troublemaker claims to have reformed, but Sam knows better than to think with what’s in his pants. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to make his heart fall into line.

Martha’s had her sights on the seriously built bodyguard for years. Quiet and conservative, he’s not even remotely her type. So why the hell can’t she get him out of her mind? There’s more to her than the Louboutin wearing party-girl of previous years, however. Maybe it’s time to let him in on that fact and deal with this thing between them.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Stronger by Kylie Scott

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

What a great jump back into a favorite series of mine.  It was the perfect little reminder of how much fun the guys and their wives are PLUS we finally got to see David/Ev/Martha deal with their past and jump into their futures.

In the Series we saw Sam and Martha dancing around each other but never giving into the tension.  When Martha returns to help Lizzy and Ben with toddler Gibson, all the secrets and tension bubbles over.  We see Martha struggle with wanting to be with her family but not being able to actually BE with her family.  Her past and her issues all seem to make her feel uncomfortable. She struggles to feel good about her past and her mistakes in regard to David.  We see her finally coming to deal with her sins and accepting herself for who she is now vs who she was then.   Gotta say I really liked Martha at the end of the story.  She was never someone I liked given what she did to Ev and David BUT she has changed and grown.

Sam…dude….SAM!  YES PLEASE!  He is so the perfect person for Martha.  He has seen her at her worst and still loved her.  He does so much to make her a better person even when she is trying to deny what they have.  Sam is a take charge man but will fake allwing Martha control when it assures him the woman of his 10 year dream.

My Stage Dive heart is so happy with this book and I loved the quick jump back into the world to reconnect with everyone and give Martha an HEA even if I didn’t think she originally deserved one.

“I don’t believe this,” I bitched. “My Valentino boots are actually sticking to the floor. That’s how gross this place is.”

Lizzy just smiled. “Told you to dress casual.”

“I am.”

The smile widened.

“Jeans and a tee is casual.”

“A tee? It’s velvet, Martha.” She held a bottle of beer up to her lips, taking a sip. “I said we were going to a dive bar. You have only yourself to blame for the fashion faux pas.”

“But velvet is in!”

“Would you two quit talking? I’m trying to listen,” said my brother, Ben. The big hairy idiot was slouched back in his chair, bopping his head in time to the music.

Lizzy shuffled closer all conspiratorial-like. “I know why you’re all dressed up.”

I said nothing. There was nothing to be said.

Next her gaze went to the man standing at the end of the bar across from us. No, no, I would not turn my head. I would not fall prey to her bullshit. After all, I’d managed to successfully avoid him for the forty-eight or so hours since my not so triumphant surprise return to the West Coast. Even with us both being in the same house. A very big sprawling house, but still.

On the other hand, it should probably be mentioned that he looked awfully good tonight in jeans and a white T-shirt with a leather jacket. Samuel Rhodes, otherwise known as Sam. Not a pretty man with his harsh features and bull-like neck, but something about him appealed to me. As always, his head was shaved and his body was built and my idiot fingers itched to explore.

Okay. So I guess at some point I must have turned my head. And shit, he caught me looking.

The corner of his lips rose just a little, just enough to mess with me, before he returned to doing his job by casually surveying the packed room. My heart did not speed up due to anything done by him. Clearly, I hadn’t totally caught my breath from when we’d walked in half an hour ago or something. That was all. Interesting to note, he did none of the checking me out typical of a heterosexual male who might have been into me. In fact, he didn’t really give me any signals at all. Ever.

#Review – It seemed like a good idea at the time by Kylie Scott

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

So I know people are calling this a taboo relationship and I guess maybe 15 years older is Taboo but our heroine is 18 years old soooo I didn’t see much wrong there.  I thought the taboo element was making a pass at your dads business associate…LOL  now THAT is a bit of a bad decision!!  The heart wants what the heart wants thought right???  ANND Adele wants Pete.

After Adele’s little slip up, we see her 7 years later and at her dad’s wedding.  FYI her dad was a scream.  He was so funny as was his new bride.  Great secondary characters for the story.    The complex relationship between Adele and Pete is explained in current and flashback scenes.  We see Pete dragging his feet at being with Adele at the same time wanting to be with her.  I seriously wanted to throat punch him a time or two.  The characters are so in their own heads that they are what cause so much heart ache and despair for themselves.

The story was well written and made you hurt for them both while also wanting to slap them upside the heads .

#NewRelease #doublereview #NetgalleyReviewer #ARC- Chaser, Dive Bar Book 3 by Kylie Scott

Chaser (Dive Bar #3)

Love isn’t always NEAT…

Bartender and all round bad boy, Eric Collins, has come to a crossroads. It’s time to take life seriously and maybe even attempt to settle down. If only the person he was hoping to settle down with didn’t turn out to be pregnant.

Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she’d had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labor during a snowstorm and her car slides on some ice, however, it’s Eric who comes to the rescue.

There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh Eric your man whoring ways are coming to an end my friend!!

Eric..we all remember Eric right???  He is part owner of the Dive Bar and certainly has no issue with the ladies.  He doesn’t mind all the attention he gets from his friends, or does he??  Maybe man whoring is not all he is good for??  Maybe, just maybe he wants *Gasp* More???  Eric IS a good guy but he just cant seem to keep it in his pants so to say.  What eligible, good looking guy would???  But then SHE arrives into town and everything changes.

Jean leaves Florida because she need a new life plan.  Jean goes to the Bar to meet her new friend Nell who is also going to help her start her life over.  When Eric sees Jean he is all “Hey How You Dion’?” until the baby bump pops out from under the table…yikes.

Since the two are going to be neighbors they quickly find a friendship of sorts but when the baby comes he see a new side to both of them and their new found feelings.

Eric…what can I say? I love a naughty guy who gets into trouble but I also loved seeing the character growth from the books until his book.

I received a copy of this book via netgalley for an honest review.

Yes, it is finally Eric’s story. Eric is Joe’s brother and if you read Dirty or Twist you are sure to remember him. I am so ready to see him redeemed not sure if that is possible but if it can be done Kylie will do it. I wasn’t sure about Eric when I read Dirty and Twist I mean yes he is easy going, an all about me kind of guy and a manwhore. However, I stilled wanted to see if he would be the same kind of guy when he was finally face to face with his one. I could not wait for him to meet his match and settle down. Then again maybe he would always be this way but man I hoped I was right on this.

Eric is getting it from all angles. His care free attitude toward woman is causing his friends who are beginning to settle down to come down on him hard. He decides he is going to give the stick with one girl thing a try. He happens to choose a new face that walked into the bar only thing is he didn’t realize he was getting a little more than he bargained for when he set his eyes on Jean.

Jean came to Coeur D’Alene so she could make a new start for herself and her baby. She meets Eric at the bar where he attempts to hit on her. This only causes a bit of friction because Jean just happens to be Nell’s online friend. I loved Jean she was so sweet. The instant chemistry between Jena and Eric was amazing. Even with that instant chemistry Eric decides to back off and go the friend route when he finds out she is pregnant.

I fell harder for Eric when he was reading the baby books to be able to help Jean when she needed him. I absolutely loved seeing this side of Eric. Seeing Eric and Jean baby bonding was so heartwarming. Being able to see the Stage Dive guys at the party was great, oh Mal you never let me down for a good laugh.
