Deep by Kylie Scott
Leave it up to Kylie Scott to turn an oops-baby plot on its head. Kylie's signature humor and style comes through loud and clear in Deep. Kylie brings this bearded wonder to life and will quickly change your opinion to #TeamBeard if you're not already on board.
I hate to say that during the times between reading the Stage Dive books, I tend to forget just how much I love Kylie's writing and the characters she writes about. She has a way of writing a story with simplicity that makes it so easy to love, yet with complexity of character that makes falling for each one of them inevitable. In Deep, we get to check back in on all of the couples from the others in the series — PUUMMPKIINN! — and find our way through Ben's love story. That big hunk of Sequoia gives one of my all-time favorite sex scenes (see: 1st time), and puts Deep firmly on my Certified Favorites list!
What a great way to end the series!! Ben is the stereotypical rocker....music, booze and women are his focus. Funny how a baby on the way can change things. It took me a while to fall in love with Ben, I didn't like his aloof attitude toward Lizzie. But, as always, Kylie Scott made it impossible for me not to fall for the bearded wonder. Deep is sweet, funny and totally hot. I'm gonna miss these boys! [March 2015]
When a favorite author gifts you with a favorite odd book category, you demolish that story in one sitting. The “oops baby”, as I affectionately call it, is just something I love to read about. I wanted to see Ben and Lizzy grow right along with that baby, see how they dealt with the stress of impending parenthood, and then how they found that magical HEA. Not only did I get that, but I was ecstatic to see the rest of the Stage Dive couples, to laugh at Mal’s antics and to see how sweet Jimmy was with Lena now that he knew what love was. I’m going to miss these rockers and the ladies who “tamed” them.

Their one night stand wasn’t supposed to end this way…
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?
