The first two novels in Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series! Get ready to rock, all night long... LICK Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. One thing is certain: being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

Anne Rollins never thought she’d meet the rock god who plastered her bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn’t end well. Or could it? “Sexy, naughty, and hilarious.”—Up All Night Blog
