Lick By Kylie Scott

Just what I was looking for!

I was going through a too much heavy emotions phase and this book cleared that right up for me!

I loved the fun, impromptu story of Evelyn and David. I was confused in the beginning, because he behaved like he practically hated her so I wanted to see what would come of this "love story"

Things did move pretty fast and I am a little bummed that we didn't get a full recap of what happened in Vegas or at least for Evelyn to remember what went down. Honestly, now that I think about it, I wonder if book 2 will be about David and Evelyn, because there is still a lot of animosity between important people in her life and her decisions, and a few unanswered questions.

Still, I loved the characters. They were a fun set, at least where David, Evelyn and Mal was concerned. Not that the other's weren't interesting, but only  select one was allowed continued entrance into Ev and David's bubble and that was Mal. So we clicked with him more than others throughout this novel.

I'm a more realistic kind of chick so I found the timeline to be a little off kilt and the pace a steady fast, but I guess that's what life is like in this lane.

David was crazy, sexy cool, but unfortunately, other than anger and trust issues, we never really got to delve into his personality. In retrospect, this story was shallow in the personality development department, but it was still entertaining with good conversations and good enough editing.

Evelyn was outspoken and I loved her inner and outer ramblings and fascination. She was uncomfortably comfortable in her own skin (if that even makes sense ...) and the fact she wasn't a size 2 and loving it was an added bonus!

The characters around, seemed like interesting ones, but once again, too much personality traits were bypassed in this novel, so we never got to spend time around much people, other than Evelyn and David or Evelyn and her constant turmoils.

I loved the honesty of the relationship and even though the sex scenes weren't off the charts, they were intimate and special moments. Her thoughts seemed more realistic with regards to her sexual experiences and I loved how she was reserved while being out there at the same time.

I'm not certain as to what to expect for book 2, but if it's more Evelyn and David I am up! If we get to move on to another band member, then it's all good. Either way, this book was a comfortable read that held my attention even if a certain level of depth was lacking.
