ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date March 31, 2015

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?


REVIEW: 4.5 stars– DEEP is the fourth and final installment in Kylie Scott’s adult, contemporary Stage Dive erotic romance series focusing on the members of the rock band Stage Dive and the women that they love. This is bassist Ben Nicholson and psychology student Lizzy Rollin’s storyline. We were first introduced to Lizzy in PLAY (Stage Dive #2) –Mal and Anne’s story. Lizzy is Anne’s younger sister and Mal is very protective of those he considers family.

Told from first person POV (Lizzy) the focus of the storyline is Ben and Lizzy’s relationship- a friends to lovers story that finds our couple at odds with one another’s current direction in life. A one-night stand weeks earlier in Vegas has resulted in more than a broken heart for Lizzy, Ben doesn’t do relationships; doesn’t do love; in fact Ben wants nothing to do with anything permanent-at all. He is a bit of a manwhore whose reputation has preceded Lizzy and Ben’s one-night stand-a night that neither one will ever forget. Ben continues to offer friendship in lieu of everlasting love.

Ben has always been a bit of an enigma throughout the series. Very little information, background or history surrounding Ben’s relationship with the band or his sister was ever revealed. He was always watching and waiting; or going in another direction; working on something by himself . Ben’s involvement in the series has been limited and with that comes the unknown factor as to the who, how and why! His attraction to Lizzy is immediate; their futures are tied together but his disinterest was heartbreaking and at times, cruel. There is plenty of push and pull between out leading characters; a roller coaster relationship with not enough highs and too many lows.

The storyline initially travels between past and present using memories, flashbacks and text messages-texting that began in LEAD (Book 3) but it was never revealed with whom Ben was talking. The current story begins a couple of months after Mal and Anne’s Las Vegas wedding where Ben had hooked up with Mal’s new sister in law. Ben had already been warned by Mal not to make any advances towards Lizzy but for months Lizzy and Ben have had a virtual relationship through texts and emails. What ensues is a night of sexy fun that Lizzy will remember for a lifetime.

All of the previous storyline couples-David and Evelyn/Mal and Anne/Jimmy and Lena play a significant role throughout the novel where we get a glimpse at the band’s struggles to keep peace amongst themselves. Ben’s sister Martha (Lick #1) returns to wreak havoc on everyone’s lives and with it comes the possibility of a storyline of her own. The introduction of several potential new love interests has piqued this reader’s interest. We are also reintroduced to sexy bassist Vaughn whose own reputation with the women needs no further explanation-Vaughn is a member of the warm up band Down Fourth. Stage Dive’s quiet and unassuming security guard/driver Sam has revealed that there is someone he has been admiring from afar. Their stories and loves will be revealed in Kylie Scott’s spinoff series -DIVE BAR.

The world building continues to follow the band-behind the scenes, on stage, and on the road. Relationships are difficult; friendships are divided; lovers become jealous and unsure. Things are about to change for the members of Stage Dive and the epilogue fast forwards the series several months where we get a glimpse at what life has in store. Mal is still my favorite drummer !!

Kylie Scott’s storylines are passionate, intense and addicting. Her characters are real; heartbreaking; funny and insane….Mal Ericson anyone ?? DEEP may be the conclusion to Kylie’s STAGE DIVE series but the characters and their stories will remain forever as one of my favorite rock music series.

Excerpt beige


“C’mon. How have you been, really? What’s been going on with you?” he pushed. I frowned at him and he frowned right back. “Liz, please.”
I groaned in defeat. “All right, I suck.”
“Why do you suck?”
“So very many reasons.” I pushed my hair back from my face—no more hiding. “Pregnancy sucks. It’s natural, my ass. I finally stop throwing up, but I’m tired all the time. Giving up coffee was horrendous. None of my clothes fit right because of these stupid breasts, and they ache constantly. I have to pee like every thirty seconds, and then to top it off, I cry every time the Healthy Hound ad comes on. It’s ridiculous”
Little wrinkles appeared either side of his nose. “You cry at a dog food ad?”
“Yes. The puppies jump all over each other to get to their mother and it’s just so beautiful, with their cute little tails wagging and everything.”
He just stared at me.
“I know its psycho, Ben. Believe me, I’m well aware of this.”
“Hey, it’s fine.” He covered a smile with his hand. Too late, the bastard.
“You try dealing with all these hormones going apeshit. Crap. Apeshoot.”
“I’m trying not to swear,” I explained. “You want the first word our child comes out with to be something bad?”
“No. Gotcha.” The man was incredibly bad at hiding a grin. “No swearing.”

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.

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast—at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn’t end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?
