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 devastatingly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben’s the only man who’s ever made her feel out of control with desire? 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, and no matter how hot the chemistry between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he’s not going to go there. But when Ben has a moment of weakness in Sin City, he 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 true connection of the heart?
With Deep being the last novel in the Stage Dive series, I was kind of hoping for a book that was a tad crazier, or rather, more hectic novel than the last three books. Well, I got what I wished for!
I kind of suspected from the Lead (the previous novel) that Deep would be a story about Liz and Ben. I didn’t want to believe it, just because Liz is so young compared to Ben. There are relationships out there though that have such an age gap between their partners. I just want what’s best for my fictional characters!
There are a lot of ups and downs in Liz and Ben’s relationship. I’m glad that we’re shown the problems that this couple faced.
What surprised me most about this novel was that I was legitimately laughing within the first few pages. I didn’t expect this beginning of Deep to be funny. At all. Yet there I was, laughing away. There are some other parts of Deep that had me laughing as well, so not just the beginning was funny.
There are so many emotions that Liz goes through within Deep. I mean, I know I’ve just said
typed that the story made me laugh, but I was also made to feel incredibly angry, exhilarated…spiteful. And of course, there are quite a few sexy-times. Which is apparently the norm with Scott’s books.
I’m surprised that there wasn’t a second point of view in Deep. The first three books; Lick, Play, Lead, all had the guy’s points of view included in the book, yet Deep didn’t and I didn’t realize it until after the fact. I would have liked Ben’s POV on things, even though he seems to be a man of few words.
I’m glad that everything turned out relatively well.
I ended up giving Deep, 3 of 5 stars on Goodreads.
