Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas's plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

I requested this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The cover for this book is stunning as the use of colours especially in the tattoo make this cover stand out. I would say it was the cover that drew me into wanting to read this book.

As soon as I started this book I was completely drawn into this book, I just didn't want to put it down and when I had to I was thinking about it. Was there flaws? Yes Did I mind those flaws? No. I was thinking about having to lower the rating I gave it but I couldn't do it as I was too enthralled with the story that I was able to forgive the never knowing what happened before they got married. The other thing I was able to forgive was the way in which one minute Evelyn hated David then the next minute she was forgive him his not so nice moments. I loved that this book started with the marriage and then they got to know one another as it was different to other books that I have read. The chemistry between Evelyn and David really did sizzle and you could tell how they felt for one another even if they didn't realise it themselves. I would have loved to have read this from alternating pov's as I really need to get inside David's head to see what he was thinking. The ending was perfect for this story and I do hope that we get to see more of these two in the next books which I'm sure we will. Fingers crossed.

I loved almost all of the characters. Evelyn was a great female character who was insecure about herself as well as not being this stick thin woman it made a refreshing change. Evelyn was a sweet person who at times I felt sorry for especially when people would call her for her weight. There was times when I wanted to slap her though but I guess in the end I could see where she was coming from. David I absolutely adored and he broke my heart a little bit at the beginning when Evelyn forgot about everything that happened between them. There was times when he acted like a jerk but like Evelyn by the end I understood why he acted the way he did. I liked that we got a little introduction to the rest of the band even if some of them I wasn't quite sure about but I'm sure that will change as it started to change with Jimmy. Mal has to be my favourite so I'm glad that it's his book next.

Overall this was an amazing start to the Stage Dive series and I can't wait to find out more about the rest of the band. I am also looking forward to reading other series from the amazing Kylie Scott.
