'I loved it. I loved Kylie's style. I loved her ease, and I loved the way she makes you a Stage Dive groupie, completely consumed' Up All Night Book Blog
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 is the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire all 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, 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?

He does eventually kind of man up toward the end (because this is a romance novel, after all), but I never really felt like they were a real couple, that they were actually in love. Of course, the fact that this book is 100% Lizzy's POV doesn't help. If we'd had some idea what was going on in his head and heart, it would have been a better read and he might have come across better. I don't even feel like this book had a happy ever after ending, more like a reasonably committed to trying to be happy right now.
The book does, however, bring some interesting conclusions to the series. You get to catch up with the other couples in some amusing ways. If you've read the first three books in the series, this is worth reading for that, but don't expect too much from the main romance of this book.
As Ben and Lizzy try to navigate this new development, their attraction for each other comes back full force. But Ben is determined to do the right thing and deny it, resulting in mixed signals to Liz. Now she has to decide if she sticks around to have her heart ripped out yet again.
Loved this wrap up to the series, and how we got to see how all the other characters are going as well. I can honestly say I wished the series didn't end here, and I hope to see more of these characters in the future.
Highly recommend this series!
So, I inhaled these books over the course of one week recently – alternately kicking myself for waiting so long to read them, while being secretly glad that 4th book ‘Deep’ came out this year and I got to read the series in one shot. And now I’ve been faced with the hard task of writing a series review that’s not just unintelligible happy-reading-grunting sounds of sheer delight … this is my attempt at a cohesive review, though you should know that my face lighting up at the mere mention of the series is kinda all the recommendation you need …
First book ‘Lick’ is about Stage Dive lead guitarist and songwriter David Ferris, and the woman he marries in Vegas on a whim, Evelyn ‘Evie’ Thomas. ‘Play’ is all about hyper drummer Mal Ericson, and his unlikely love interest Anne Rollins. Lead singer Jimmy Ferris’s book is ‘Lead’, all about his relationship with sober companion-turned something more, Lena Morrissey. The series concludes with ‘Deep' and unlikely leading man, bassist Ben whose life and that of Anne’s sister Lizzy Rollins is turned completely upside down by each other and the consequences of their one night stand.
I loved every single instalment in this series, which is about rock and roll band Stage Dive who have already hit it big and are maybe facing some inner band conflict, when these various women enter their lives … I really appreciated that while every book is a contained love story for each band member, there’s an over-arching theme of the band’s shifting dynamics which are in need of an overhaul.
David kicks off the series with his Vegas-wedding, and when Evie is thrown into his high-profile world she kind of stumbles into a hornets nest within the band too… David and lead singer Jimmy are brothers who have family secrets they’re trying to keep a lid on, and are also attempting to forget the woman who came between them and nearly fractured the band. Ben’s family are also tangled up in David and Jimmy’s uneasy relationship in the wake of a ruined romance, while tragedy striking Mal’s family impacts on the band in a huge way. It seems obvious that a series about a band should have them as a sort of lodestone throughout that series, but I’ve read my fair share of rock and roll romances and I can tell you that some authors struggle with hinging the entire series on the core group … Kylie Scott has no such struggle, and does this rather masterfully. So much so that by the fourth book ‘Deep’ they really did feel like a family I was quite sad to leave by the last page.
I also loved these books, of course, for the romances. I do have my favourites – David and Ben’s books ‘Lick’ and ‘Deep’ – but I adored every instalment. I really loved how challenging all the heroines were, and that while the pressure of the fame-game was explored throughout, Scott paid more service to deeper issues within everyone’s psyche, the women especially. And I found real enjoyment in mapping how each new member to the Stage Dive family shifted the dynamics ever so slightly, which was beautifully summarised in Ben’s book ‘Deep’ when he’s the ‘last man standing’ and both terrified/craving the stability and love all the other men have found.
Kylie Scott can also write the hell outta sexual tension and ― *ahem* ― climactic scenes. She’s just a thoroughly enjoyable author to go on this ride with, and I’m over-the-moon at the prospect of her new series (a character for which, appeared in ‘Deep’ called Vaughan). ‘Dive Bar’ is going to be her new series coming in 2016, and it sounds like it’s going to act as an intriguing mirror-series to ‘Stage Dive’, about musicians who haven’t made the big-time and are instead slinging drinks behind a bar. I can’t wait to get stuck in to that series, because I think the same way Scott brilliantly explored the pressure of fame and excess, she’ll do seriously intriguing justice to characters who are dealing with the fallout of “failure” and how they handle having to adjust their dreams (or not?). Either way – bring it on! Kylie Scott should be every romance reader’s automatic buy!
Deep has a different feel to it then the other Stage Dive novels. Ben is the epitome of a rock star. He is unattached, likes his easy life and being able to just do as he pleases is his thing. Lizzy is sweet if not a little obsessed but not in a stalker or even creepy way. She knows what she wants and she was going after it but it just wasnt certain she was going to ever get it.
Ben and Lizzy have some struggles ahead of them as they face life together, they will forever be linked and the way it plays out is truly great.
You feel for Lizzy, you see her inner strength and determination and independence. You see Ben struggle, fall and stuff up and try. Its not all roses and sunshine, they have hurdles, annoying sisters, fame, and life on the road to deal with.
Their banter is sweet.
"I told you not to come here."
"I know." I sniffed, "But have you noticed how i actually make my own choices like a real live adult?"
And the way he says "Sweetheart" is enough to melt even the hardest of hearts.
Deep is well written and i personally did not want it to end. It makes you feel. It is well paced and unravels at a believable pace as the characters grow and struggle. The secondary characters are perfect, Jimmy is still my favourite he is just so casual that he deserves attention he demands it.
If you liked the other books you should love this little package. Its sadly the end but its the perfect ending to a great line of novels that will be re-read in this house hold over and over again.

This one didn't quite live up to the rest but I did enjoy certain parts of it. I wasn't a fan of the dynamic that the MCs relationship had. Although I enjoy the "unexpected pregnancy" trope, it's hard to pull off without making it obvious that it was the only reason that the couple got together. I actually prefer stories where the couple got to know each other because of said surprise pregancy (you know those one night stand stories..) In here there was some sort of establised connection beforehand but I wasn't convinced and the way Ben acted from the moment he found out.. lets just say he could have done better but so could Lizzie. Basically, I didn't like either of them that much.
A baby bomb. My FAVOURITE kind of story. I loved the way it was handled here, and I loved how the author played it out for both Lizzy and Ben, showing that it's not such an easy road to get a happy ending when you discover that you're pregnant by a rock star who doesn't see himself being in a relationship with anyone. Lizzy handled it well, but many times I wanted to smack Ben up the head when he could be a jerk, but he definitely came around in the end.
It sucks that I didn't start this series sooner, and I seriously can't believe that I'm only NOW reading them, because I truly did love these books, but better late than never, right? The Stage Dive series is officially one of my favourite series of all time, and I truly cannot wait to read more from this author in the future!
