My Review-

OMGJimmy! The books in the Stage Dive series just keeping getting better and better with each book. I liked David, LOVED Mal, but Jimmy takes the cake. He's the cherry on top, the one I love out of all of them. For now at least! We still have to get Ben's book!

In Lead we get to learn more about Lena, Jimmy's own personal assistant/babysitter. Lena is tough, she's sarcastic, and girl's got some curves on her! Finally. I like to see a character not be size 0 for once. Anyways, Lena is hard ass, or so I thought when I read Play. We get to see a whole other side to her in the next book and I just adore the freak out of her. she certainly gives Jimmy a run for his money. 

Lead is filled with tons of sexual angst and frustration. After a traumatic moment leaves Jimmy vulnerable, Lena sees him in a completely different light. The more she sees the "real" Jimmy, the harder it is for her not to fall for him. But Jimmy feels differently. See, he actually likes Lena around. He considers her his one friend that he can just be himself around; but how can two people who have so much chemistry, just remain friends?

That is the gist of the story. Trying to keep a professional and friendly relationship while working together. After all, sex between friends never works out, right? I enjoyed Jimmy and Lena's story immensely, so much so, that I couldn't help but swoon and giggle and keep the dorkiest smile off of my face. I guess Jimmy does that to a girl. Can you blame me?

In Lick, the first book of the series, I thought Jimmy was the biggest douche, and he was don't get me wrong. But finally being able to "know" the guy, my feelings for him have grown soft. I'm a big softie for the guys who try to throw you off by acting like a bastard yet underneath the facade, being a total sweetie. I'd say that's Jimmy in a nutshell but there's so much more to him than that, you'll see what I mean once you read about it.

What would a stage dive book be without all the boys? We get to see the whole gang on several occasions and even though their books are finished, their stories are far from over. Mal is a personal favorite of mine. He is such a fun loving guy and I love how he and Anne interact. It's so cute. 

Jimmy is an asshole. A loveable one, but still an asshole all the same. I love this series and I love Kylie for writing them. Without her I wouldn't have my Stage Dive boys<3


“Lena, you seen my old black Led Zep shirt?”


“You sure?” His brows became one dark cranky line. The scratches on his face were healing well, thank goodness. Though it didn’t reduce my desire to throttle his mother on a daily basis.

“Yes. I haven’t seen it.”

Can’t find it anywhere…”

“And this is a surprise, how?” I slipped my hands into my back jean’s pockets. “Jimmy, you own more clothing than Cher, Brittney, and Elvis, put together. Things are bound to go missing.”

“Sure you haven’t seen it?”

“For goodness sake, what do you think, Jimmy? That I stole it to sleep in or something?” I laughed bitterly. Sure as hell, the truth deserved a good mocking. I’d sunk so despicably low.

I hadn’t even meant to steal the stupid thing, but the shirt had been mixed up with my laundry a few days ago. It’d been the first top I laid my hand on after stepping out of the shower, ready to go to bed. Without thought, I’d put it on and it’d been so soft, the scent of him lingering beneath the laundry detergent. Every night since, I’d found myself in it come bedtime. My shame knew no limits. And no, I still hadn’t quit. The words still hadn’t come even close to leaving my mouth.

He frowned. “No.”

“That I have some deep secret longing to feel close to you resulting in my stealing your shirt like some creepy perv?”

“Course I don’t fucking think that,” he replied crankily, reaching up to grip the top of the doorframe. All of his bulging muscles stretched the arms of his white T-shirt in the nicest way. It was all I could do not to start drooling, my heart beat taking up residence somewhere down between my thighs. And who could blame it? Not me. Maybe if I got laid, this would go away and things would return to normal. It’d seemed safer to avoid rubbing up against any men just in case I got carried away and started dating again. This new situation, however, changed everything.

“Well, of course not! That would be crazy.” And wasn’t that the god’s honest truth? Cray-zeee. Lock me up and throw away the key because it wasn’t like I didn’t know better.

“Just can’t figure out where the hell it could be.”

Angels couldn’t have smiled as innocently. They might have tried, but they would have failed, the dirty-mouthed, winged, little liars. “Jimmy, I don’t know where it is. But I’ll look around for it later, okay?”

“Yeah,” he said, and then added as an afterthought, “and stop looking at me weird.”

“I’m not!”
