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?
Deep is the fourth and final book in the Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott. I love the Stage Dive series. I love the band and the other characters in the book. I love the writing style and the humor. Honestly, I’m sad to see it end. In this final installment, we get to see Stage Dive’s bass player, Ben, finding love like the rest of his bandmates. Though it’s a bit more complicated because this time there’s a baby on the way…
We met Lizzy Rollins for the first time in Play. We know her as the sweet younger sister who has a huge crush on Ben. Her older sister, Anne, is madly in love with and married to the band’s drummer Mal, so for Ben she is off limits. And Ben did keep his distance to honor his friendship with Mal. But Lizzy is very determined and she won’t stop until she had him right where she wanted him. So she gets his phone number and starts texting him. Through those texts they discover that they have a lot in common and develop a friendship. Then one night in Vegas they decide to give in to their lust and it changes their life forever. Lizzy, just like the other heroines in this series, is sassy, funny and strong. She is by no means perfect, but she did her best with the situation she’s in.
Ben has been warned to stay away from Lizzy. Sure, he’s attracted to her, but given their eight year age difference and his friendship with Mal, he did his best to stay away from Lizzy. Here’s the thing about Ben Nicholson, he is happy with his life. He loves his freedom and rock and roll lifestyle. So when he found out that Lizzy is pregnant with his child, he freaked the hell out. It took me awhile to warm up to Ben. I understand his fear, but the way he kept breaking his promise to Lizzy wasn’t really my favorite thing to read. Once he got his head outta his ass, he became really sweet and protective.
Honestly, Ben and Lizzy’s story isn’t my favorite in the series. There’s a lot of back and forth and there were moments that Ben peeved me off. But in the end, Deep is a highly entertaining romance story. It’s funny, sweet and sexy. I love that we get to see the other characters from previous books. Ms. Scott’s signature humor is also still there. The epilogue is really lovely and all in all this story is a wonderful ending to the awesome series. Deep gets 3.5 “Just Friends” Stars from me!
“So I’d been knocked up by a rock star. Big deal.”
“Just give me a chance to catch up and I promise, Lizzy, I will have your back.”
”Sweetheart, you can have whatever the fuck you want, I promise. Whatever you need. No more holding back. No more fear.”
“Ben, I don’t want to take your freedom. I just want a place in your world. An important one.”
