Lick by Kylie Scott Blog Tour

Book Description:
Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas's plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll's favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.

I'm sure you've heard the quote:  "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." this case not so much.  Evelyn "Ev" wakes up in a hotel in Vegas married! No recollection as to how that happened Ev makes snide comments to her husband about getting a divorce and getting back to their lives.  Little does she know she's married David Ferris, the famous guitarist, from the bad Stage Dive.  The country is in an up roar and by the time she gets home her parents house is surrounded by the press.

David sends his security team to bring Ev to him so they can get the divorce/annulment underway and hide her until the press moves on to the next celebrity scandal.  

David and Evelyn have a steaming hot attraction to each other.  One that makes you feel safe and at home.  They vow to be honest with each other and never leave the other after seeing where their relationship could go.  Until David's past comes to haunt their relationship.  

I thought this story was easy to read and it went surprisingly fast once I started reading it.  I loved all the characters and of course there's always a snag to someones happy ever after.  The question really is are you willing to work on your relationship or are you going to throw it all away.  It's easy to throw away, and hard to work on.  With the divorce rate at 50% or higher in the US it seems some may take the easy way out.  I'm not pointing fingers at anyone, please don't get irate at me, but there are some marriages that could be saved if the communication gates would open up and people would be honest with each other instead of hiding behind hurts, etc.  I know not every marriage is the same.  I know people have their issues.  I've been married almost 13 years so I get it.  It is hard.  David and Ev were willing to work on their marriage.  Trust is a huge factor.  It's also one that can destroy what's perfect and meant to be.

I gave this story 4 stars.  Check it out!  I bet you'll like it.  :-)

My brain stuttered and I stared at his mouth. He had the most beautiful mouth, with full lips that pulled up slightly at the edges. Stunning.
“Tell me what you’re thinking,” he said.
“You said not to think. And honestly, I’m not.”
“Good,” he said, leaning even closer. “That’s good.”
His lips brushed against mine, easing me into it. Soft but firm, with no hesitation. His teeth toyed with my bottom lip. Then he sucked on it. He didn’t kiss like the boys I knew, though I couldn’t exactly define the difference. It was just better and … more. Infinitely more. His mouth pressed against mine and his tongue slipped into my mouth, rubbing against mine. God, he tasted good. My fingers slid into his hair as if they’d always wanted to. He kissed me until I couldn’t remember anything that had come before. None of it mattered.
His hand slid around the nape of my neck, holding me in place. The kiss went on and on. He lit me up from top to toe. I never wanted it to end.
He kissed me till my head spun and I hung on for dear life. Then he pulled back, panting, and set his forehead against mine once again.
“Why did you stop?” I asked when I could form a coherent sentence. My hands pulled at him, trying to bring him back to my mouth.
“Shh. Relax.” He took a deep breath. “Did you remember something? Anything about that familiar to you?”
My kiss-addled mind came up blank. Damn it. “No. I don’t think so.”
“That’s a pity.” A ridge appeared between his brows. The dark smudges beneath his beautiful blue eyes seemed to have darkened. I’d disappointed him again. My heart sunk.
“You look tired,” I said.
“Yeah. Might be time to get some shut-eye.” He planted a quick kiss of my forehead. Was it a friend’s kiss or more? I couldn’t tell. Maybe it too was just for scientific purposes.
“We tried, huh?” he said.
“Yeah. We did.”
He rose to his feet, collecting his beer bottle. Without him to warm me the breeze blew straight through me, shaking my bones. It was the kiss though that had really shaken me. It had blown my ever-lovin’ mind. To think, I’d had a night of kisses like that and forgotten it. I needed a brain transplant at the earliest convenience.
