I’ve coveted Kylie Scott’s books before but haven’t yet read any of them (ahem. Maybe I oughta check the library. Wait. I’ve got a pile of stuff here. Nevermind).

Here’s the latest in her world:

As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it’s booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.

Lena’s not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

This one’s gonna come down to if the writing’s as good as I’ve heard it is, because we’ve seen all this before. Diva singer. PR problem. Rehab. And then the employee who rescues him but winds up in his bed.

I get it. There are only so many plots. But do we have to throw this many of the same elements into one book?

Still. Maybe the author redeems it all. She’s sure got a lot of reviews over at GoodReads and no, I didn’t read them.

I’m not sure why Susan or I missed coveting Kylie Scott’s first book, Lick. Susan likes the erotic stuff more than I do, so this should have been right up her alley.

She’s busy editing or something, or else I’d let her write this post, too.  Here’s the description:

Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated follow-up to international bestseller Lick.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?

Yeah, if you read romance, you’ve seen THIS plot before. It’s an oldie but a goodie.

The reviews for it are pretty mixed; people say Anne’s too much of a pushover and Mal’s deranged, and not in a good way.

Still, you gotta wonder… especially when you see the GIF quotes all over the reviews. There seem to be lines that readers go nuts for. And when all’s said and done, don’t you writers write for the readers and not for us reviewers and experts, no matter how much we love to read, too?
