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?
Lizzy Rollins is shocked when she learns that her life has been changed forever, all of her plans and goals for her career and education have been tossed, when she finds out she gets pregant..and the father is a rock star…perfect. Lizzy never imagined that one glorious night in Ben Nicholson’s arms, would result in this. Apparently condoms aren’t foolproof after all. Her life has changed but she knows that the hardest part will be telling Ben. Ben has always known that Lizzy is forbidden. He promised his closest friend and brother Mal, he wouldn’t touch Lizzy, who is Mal’s sister-in-law. Mal is very protective and Ben respected his decision, despite how drawn he is to Lizzy. But when they start communicating in secret, they develop a friendship and more develops between them. Despite how forbidden she is to him, he can’t resist her and one night he spent the most spectacular night of his life and he knew that they had no future, and he certainly isn’t boyfriend material. But when he learns that she is pregnant, he decides that he must give them a chance…as a family.
Ben Nicholson, is the bass player of Stage Dive. He is the only bachelor left, but he also craves his freedom. Ben loves the parties and the women and the drinking. He loves his care free life, with no obligations except to his music and his family and his rock band brothers. Outside of that everything else is fair game…at least that is what he thought before a bombshell was dropped in his lap and his life changed forever. He never imagined that he would find himself being a father, and soon responsiblity is heaped on him, but there is one person that is his rock…Lizzy Rollins. Ben was such a great hero. He is sexy, talented, loves music, dedicated and carefree and playful. He is sex on wheels and doesn’t mind everyone knowing that.
Lizzy Rollins, is the sister to Anne, wife to Mal (good ole Mal–*grins*). Lizzy wants to be a psychologist, and wants to help those in need. There is a part of her that wants what her sister has but doesn’t know when or if it will happen. But then she meets Ben, and she knows that she will never feel anything close to what she feel for Ben for anyone else. So she does what any woman does…chase after her prey, only it ends up with consequences that she doesn’t see coming. Consequences that could cause a rift between Ben and the band. Lizzy is independent and passionate, she is driven and has a gentle sweet spirit. I have adored her ever since we see her in the previous book. She has a quality to her that you find down to earth and likable, the type of character you could have tea with on a lazy afternoon.
Plot and Story Line
Deep starts off with learning that Lizzy is pregnant, and the way that the whole band learns…is unique and not what I ever saw coming. Deep is the fourth installment of the series, and what an installment. It just might be my favorite one, or it ties with “Play”. Deep draws you completely in with the first chapter, and then it takes us to when they first meet, and the slow friendship that builds between them with the “secret” communications. Some of these texts..are hilarious and jeez do these two really like each other. But they don’t act on it till one fateful night. I like how entertained I felt through this whole book, and I just breezed through it, I mean this series is amazing, and Deep I just couldn’t put down. Reading Deep makes me want to re read this series again…so amazingly good. The pace of the story is pretty intense at the beginning, but then it takes it to a down low when you see them building up their connection. Then we get to the good part…seeing these two try to work things out not just with each other, but man…does the band have some surprises for you with their reactions…and Mal knows how to hold a grudge LOL. Deep was a very emotional story, and my heart just went with these two…but most especially Lizzy. Quite Frankly in the beginning, seeing how Ben deals with it, well he is a jerk. Let’s be honest…he treats her pretty horribly. But he definitely proves himself, and redeems himself to me. I love the way that his reactions are very vividly realistic, and you see how this would be how a normal person would react. You see the variety of emotions that is normal for human nature. You definitely see how these two find their way back to each other, and its a very slow and steady process. I loved the way that this story developed and you see quite a bit of depth in it, a depth that I didn’t know if I would see. But this story satisfied every romantic craving I had, and the ending…oh my…I won’t share a thing, but WOW…totally blew me away.
Now I do like a good tattoo, but it has to be done right, not just any normal tattoo will do for me. But this cover is drop dead gorgeous…I mean enough to leave you drooling. Who wouldn’t love this cover and not want to buy it right?
Quite a fun and sexy romance that will leave you breathless and in want for more from this author. Deep is a tantalizing love story, of full depth of emotions, steamy passion, a roller coaster of a ride, and a wham bam of a romance!! RIVETING!!
So I’d been knocked up by a rock star.
Deep breath. Okay.
“I don’t have an erectile issue. I have a you issue. My dick thinks you own it, apparently. But there’s more to it than that…”
“Cocks don’t think. We went over that.”
“We were wrong.”
“Huh. So I have a pet penis. Okay…keep talking.”
“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. Didn’t matter how far I ran, I couldn’t get you off my mind. Never been this way about another woman.”
“You and Bean are mine, and I look after what’s mine.”
