Play (Stage Dive #2) - Kylie Scott

Well I certainly have been on a Rocker book bender lately. Don't worry there is no need for a intervention. I haven't overdosed on tats and music just yet.
I have read some awesome ones lately. Everytime I go into Amazon I feel like a junkie looking for a fix. In my defence I really wasn't looking at going on a Rocker spree. It just kind of happened (I guess all junkies say that huh).

Now that we know I'm a addict let me tell you about my latest fix.


Synopsis - 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?

So for starters ever since Lick (click here to read my review) I have been a Mal fan. He has the all important smart ass factor that I keep going on about. Come on you gotta love a hot man with tattoos that can play mean music but also makes you laugh.
Mal brought all his smart ass and then some to this book. I loved being able to see another side to him. Anne really didn't stand a chance. I love how his mind works and even though he appears to be joking half the time about life and situations, he's actually serious. When he follows through with what he's been saying Anne can do nothing but hang on for the ride. This roller coaster is about to turn her world upside down.

Mal has a lot of emotions to deal with in this book, Anne does to. She's used to being the responsible one, "The fixer" as she puts it. This story shows her going through and figuring out which relationships are toxic and which ones are actually true. Mal learns that sometimes even though you try desperately not to life has a way of making you take it seriously.
They both have so much to learn off each other to. Watching it  as it happens is an experience that stays with you. Learning that it's ok to lean on your loved ones for help was definitely a lesson these two needed to learn.

It must be said there were many times that all I could do was laugh out loud. Mal's wit and sense of humor shine in this book. How can you not laugh with some of his logic and his quick wit, especially when they had what shall be known as the "Bed Incident", The words that fly out of Mal's mouth are seriously gold.
“We’ve broken my bed,” I said, stating the obvious.
“In battle, sacrifices must be made, pumpkin.”  - Mal to Anne.
As I said I absolutely loved Lick, David and Ev's story was awesome. Mal and Anne's story to me was better and this book is now one of my absolute favourites.
