Stay up all night with the sexy rockers in Stage Dive, the epic New Adult 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.

After falling in love with both of the books before this one I knew I needed to read Lead even if I was a little wary of Jimmy especially with how he was in book 1!

I do love this book and I can picture the model as Jimmy because even if you can't see his eyes you can tell he is gorgeous! Out of the first two books this is my least favourite out of the three and I think that only has to do with you can tell the microphone has been photoshopped into the image if it was less obvious it may have been my favourite.

From the absolute first page I was enthralled by Lead which shocked me as I didn't think I was going to love Jimmy's book half as much as David's and Mal's but I was completely wrong. I now cannot honestly pick a favourite book in this series, I have loved each book just as much as the last which I think has everything to do with the brilliance of Kylie Scott as she is able to change my mind in every book. The chemistry between Lena and Jimmy was undeniable even when they didn't want to admit to it. I loved the banter between them as Lena never took any of Jimmy's crap but she was also there for him when he desperately needed someone. What I loved about these two was the friendship that they started off with as they where so cute together and helped each other over the loneliness. As well as some very dark issue's being dealt with there was still a lot of humour it was just so funny at times. Like all the other books there is a bit of a epilogue to see what's happening with them and even though it isn't a few years later I'm still able to love the ending as I know I will get to see more of them in the next book.

Loved the characters, there was a few secondary characters that I hated but that's supposed to happen. Lena has to be one of my favourite all time female character as she is so funny, she had some great one liners. I also liked to see her vulnerable side as well as it made her feel like a more realistic character. Jimmy wasn't the nicest of characters to start with but I was able to forgive him especially when we find out why he is the way he is. He wasn't just a jerk though as he to had his funny, sweet and caring side as well which is another reason I was able to forgive his jerkiness towards Lena. It was great to see more from David and Mal there was some very hilarious goings on with Mal.

Overall another great book in the Stage Dive series and now I'm even more excited to see more about Ben bring on Dive is all I can say!
