I don't do this often, but as I read these two novels back-to-back during Dewey's 24-hour readathon, I thought I'd post about them together as well. They are the first two books, or the first half of the Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott.
This is a fun, sexy, sweet, and funny story that I really enjoyed. I think we've all had that daydream... what if we meet (insert celeb crush here) and sparks fly? Well, Ev isn't really into David and his band, but she finds that she's into David the person. They obviously has some kind of chemistry when they met (too bad Ev can't remember it) and they get a second chance to build on that.
Mal is such a fun character! He made me laugh so much in the first book, and I was glad to get to know him a little better here. He and Anne balance each other out well, but I'm not sure I could handle being in any sort of relationship with anyone like Mal. I mean, it all becomes more clear in the end, but he is kind of exhausting. I've got to hand it to Anne!
I am going to finish up this series for sure. I'm especially curious about the next book. It features someone in the band that I haven't had much reason to like up to this point, so I'm wondering how that will work. Also one person I know loved book 3, and another said it was her least favorite in the series. So I obviously need to figure that out too!
