I love books. My work is serious so I am looking for fun! Audible has changed my morning commute.
I love the humor in her books. This book made me laugh out loud several times. I also cried. Great story.
Lena was awesome. She is like every girl I know. Awesome but can't see it clearly.
She does a great job or conveying the feelings of the story. She is one of my favorites.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
This book of the series, so far, is my favorite because of how heartbreakingly real the story felt to me. This book wasn't about a drunken, forgotten weekend in Vegas or a partly planned scheme for appearances (although both were fantastic in their own right), this book was about a man, broken, alone and hurting and a woman that refuses to give up on him when the world and said man have called it quits.
Jimmy, the lead singer of Stage Dive, is in need of a new assistant. Since going to rehab for his drinking and drug abuse, Jimmy has been desperately trying to stay clean and sober. He has no other choice. He is either clean or out of the band. He is arrogant, moody, closed off and refuses to share anything with anyone, not even his own brother David, the lead guitarist of the group.
Unfortunately for Jimmy he has meet his match with Lena. She was once discussed by an ex as being complicated and untouchable, which will be perfect for Lena when dealing with “the moody damn rockstar” (her words not mine). But soon after starting the job, she is exposed to a side of Jimmy rarely, if ever, seen. This opens up a flood of questions and feelings, she never wanted to have for the “arrogant prick” (again her words). Now she is face with the decision, should she stay or should she go, because going hurts just as much as staying and Jimmy is determine to make her stay.
There are a couple of parts of this book that I cried because I seriously felt the characters pain and anguish. I mean love can be a difficult. But more often I was laughing out loud. Lena is hilarious and Kylie's writing of the character is pure perfection. She give the main heroine just the right amount of sass and vulnerability. She also makes you want to love to hate Jimmy. One point he is being really self absorb and a total jerk. The next moment he is baring his soul for only Lena to see and feel.
Please read this book, its really really good. My favorite of the series if I haven't said that already. But if you haven't read the previous two books, I would suggest start with Lick first. Each book can be read as a standalone but are so much more delicious when read in order. ENJOY!!!!
Amazing, funny, hot
I loved the Lina and Jimmy. She was able to knock down the walls he had up and showed him what love was
I had a few...loved how she stole his t-shirt but was keeping it a secret until he saw it
I love listening to books narrated by Andi Arndt, she truly expresses her feelings in her narration
Loved the narration by Andi Arndt. Laughed out loud several times during the story. Liked that all the pervious story lines played supporting roles. This could be read as a stand alone story, but knowing the back stories from the previous two books worked well too.
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
Another deep feel good fight for love!
I wasn't sure what to expect from Jimmy's story... I mean from the time he messed with Eve in book 1, I was primed to hate him...
That was before we met Lena. She is everything good to Jimmy's everything bad. I think this was a fitting for Jimmy. He had to deal with his demons before we could believe he was worth the fight! He messed up a few times, he threw fits a few times and he was funny as hell trying to push Lena to date but doing everything to destroy said dates! He refused to let her go. He fought his feelings at every turn. Finally Lena was fed up and heartbroken and walked away. Jimmy did what he always does... only this time he stopped and turned around to get what was his and what he wanted.
This was a healing book, not only for Jimmy but Jimmy and his brother. Jimmy and Eve. Jimmy and the rest of the band. Most of all we learnt there was more to Jimmy then what we expected!
Can't wait for Ben's story. I have a feeling it's all about forbidden love! Yum!~
Pretty much in the top 5
Lena, because she is just so honest and crazy
I always love Mal
REally not sure there are so many different aspects of this/these books
Just cant wait for the next one to be released
Love Dystopian novels, Romance and Murder Mysteries!
You really cannot go wrong with this series, I fell in love with this author in the first book, listening to Davie's story - the hot guitar player.
My obsession grew with the second book (you cant help but fall in love with Mal) and now I'm completely on alert for all future novels that she releases!
Let me tell you that I listen to several audiobooks from category a week, and this one (this series) checks all my boxes for making it an epic listen!
Narrator is awesome! She does the other character voices amazingly, she isn't annoying at all, love her.
The writing, combined with the narration had me laughing so hard out loud at some points too- which is quite rare in a book!
Mal is such an amazing comic relief in this series, this book made me want to go back and listen to the first two books again because now I remember how great this series really is after having to stay up all night to finish this wonderfully written book 3.
Now I can't wait to get Benny's story- I hope it comes out soon! I need to know what happens with that guy already =)
Point blank- add it to your cart, using your credit on this book is so worth it!
I hated Jimmy for most of this series. He's harsh, mean and insensitive. But mostly he's hurt, emotionally scarred and scared to let anyone close. Even though he wasn't all hearts and flowers like the other two rockers, he is just what Lena needs. She is a strong enough lead to handle him and put him right in his place. This was a fantastic series, I only hope there is more to come
Jimmy and Lena’s characters are so funny. I love books where the dialogue is sarcastic, funny and sexy all at the same time. This series has been a delightful surprise and I cannot wait for more. Jimmy is all kinds of messed up and Lena is a no nonsense women. She doesn't put up with his crap and gives it right back to him. I laughed out loud at some of their antic between the two of them. You still get a bunch of Mal Erickson in this book and he is so over the top that you cannot help but laugh. Although the story is not complicated and you can see the ending coming, it just makes you want to keep listening. I found myself staying up at night just to hear more of their banter. This is a love story with some sass. I highly recommend this series. It is similar to Olivia Cunnings books and I love those too. Worth the credit.
