Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic rock star romance series from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, author of Lick and Play.

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.

#1 Lick

#2 Play

Lead by Kylie Scott was a fantastic read! Ms. Scott is a brilliant writer, and has an amazing ability to bring unique and quirky characters to life. I fell head over heels for David in Lick, enjoyed Mal’s antics in Play, and learned to love Jimmy in Lead. And that is just the men! Ms. Scott also is able to create fabulous, strong and wonderful women. Lena is the epitome of sassy and sexy, a woman I could relate to, and exactly the type of best friend material every girl would want.

I have to admit that in the first two books, Jimmy intimidated me. He was pegged as the black sheep of Stage Dive, an unknown factor, and a bit of a live wire. Before beginning Lead I wasn’t sure about how I would feel about Jimmy, but by the end Ms. Scott made me a convert. I am a total Jimmy fan-girl now! The third book in the Stage Dive series delves into his life and unveils the underlying issues that make Jimmy who he is, yet still keeps him a bit of a mystery. We discover Jimmy through Lena, who is hired as a sobriety companion to keep him in check. She doesn’t take shit from anyone and sticks to her guns, and thus is able to get through to Jimmy like no one else previously. 

Lena and Jimmy prove the old adage that there is a fine line between love and hate – the initial dislike and tension between them created the basis for a hot relationship. Their banter is terrific, downright hilarious at times, and talk about chemistry! This book has it in spades. It is an excellent slow burn, and the anticipation definitely pays off!

“Someone banged on the front door. Huh, that’s right, we had a visitor outside waiting in the storm. All while we wrestled it out in a pseudo-sexual manner on the front entry floor. Excellent.”

I loved that Lead felt completely new and different than Lick and Play while still showcasing the band and their crazy dynamics. Ms. Scott has perfectly made each character, relationship, and story in the series feel fresh and new, with a life of its own. It was great to see glimpses of Ev, David, Anne and Mal, and once again be integrated into their lives. All I can say is that Lead is a must read for all Stage Dive fans, and I cannot wait to get my hands on Ben’s book!!

I am going to be honest, I have not read this series yet, so coming in on book 3 I was a little hesitant. Not sure whether I would be able to follow what was going on. Let me tell you.....I LOVED IT! This is probably the first book I have read where the female lead is a take no shit bad ass woman! Lena come out strong willed from page one and I enjoyed her throughout the entire book. Most of the time the guy usually takes the domineering role. Lena holds her own in this book and I found it refreshing.
"You know where you can shove the list. And if you need help, let me just fetch a rubber glove and some lube and I'll be right with you." - Lena
Rock star Jimmy will have you swooning and the duo together, make for one incredibly funny and sexy story. I will say there is sexual tension in the book. You will find yourself going, "DO IT ALREADY!" And I will tell you this, when they do.....IT IS HOT. Kylie Scott definitely knows how to write sex.
"What are you doing now?" 
"What people do at tables." Strong hands held my legs apart. "Eating."
I am giving Lead 5 sweet, funny and sexy stars. Like I said, I haven't read the first 2 in the series and I didn't feel lost at all. That being said, I plan on going back right now and reading them.....
