” Lick” by Kylie Scott was one of the most enjoyable reads I´ve had this year. The story was new and refreshing. I loved how ther author made her characters seem realistic. Nothing about getting married in Vegas isn´t new or special, but the story line……the fact that Evelyn, a womanly sized young woman with a simple background, got drunk on her birthday, married a rockstar, and had a huge blackout the next morning was fantastic! I laughed while reading some scenes and I actually felt for Evelyn when things got tough. All of the characters ( especially Mal, the drummer from band Stage Dive) were fun and they were easy to fall in love with. The futher I read, the more I was wishing the two main characters would actually find their “Happily Ever After“!
This book had a lot of chaos, love, angst, anger ( oooh, I loved it when David got angry….Hot….that was so hot!!!!) and it had painful moments where I was really wishing I could thump some characters on the back of their heads!
All in all this book was worth much more than a 5 star rating! The idea was grand and I am truly greatful I read this story! “Lick” is an absolute MANDATORY read! I loved loved LOVED this story!
