Rock and roll romance triumphs again in this perky sequel to Lick. Scott has a special skill for crafting humorous, genuine characters, with great rapport and sizzling chemistry in the bedroom . . . Another fun title in a great series. (Library Journal)
Pure rocker perfection in every single way . . . Play is a splendid marriage of romance and comedy, a possibly even better book than its stellar prequel, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes their love stories with a side of giggles. (Natasha Is a Book Junkie)
Kylie Scott is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors at combining funny with sexy, and I can't wait to read more from her. Play is a definite must-read book! (The Smut Books Club)
Sexy drummer Mal attempts a 'normal' relationship in Play, the second rock star romance novel in Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series.See all Product description

And I loved this book! Even more!
Mal was so much more than he promised in Lick!
Mal and Anne meet at a party, Mal decided he liked Anne, and that he needs Anne (for reasons of his own) and Anne needs him. So he moves in and convinced Anne to be a pretend Girlfriend.
"You moved in with me somehow".......
"I know what you're gonna say, it's sooner than I thought too. But Davie threw me out today so I figured, why wait?"
I just blinked, the rest of me being too frozen to respond.
"Okay. Long story short, I accidently saw Ev naked" He held up both hands protesting his innocence. "It was only side boob, I swear...But you know what he's like with her....Not my fault she was topless. Anyway, Davie went ballistic.....Harsh words were said. We may have even wrestled slightly. But I forgive him. Love makes you psycho, right?"
"So you moved in with me?"
"Anne, come on. We talked about this last night. If you were gonna have a problem with me moving in, that was the time to bring it up, not now."
And that sets the tone for the book! Mal is a beautifully written character! His humour, his playful nature, his childlike vulnerability that comes through sometimes, his manic energy - all hiding something, a pain you occasionally get glimpses of!
And Anne was a great character too. She saw down to the real Mal, behind the famous drummer.
Together they were perfection, the chemistry, the banter between them was great.
And seeing more of the rest of the band, and how close they all are and support each other was beautiful!
It was a funny, sexy, at times a little sad, buy hugely enjoyable read, that somehow manages to pass the brilliance of book one!
Mal is the drummer of successful band, Stage Dive. He’s known as the happy, jokey one, who’s the peacemaker. However, his friends have been worried about him, as he’s not been himself and his recent behaviour is not normal. He comes across the a happy-go-lucky guy but he's more complicated than that.
Anne is a fixer. Her flatmate has just done a runner, leaving her with an apartment that she can’t pay for on her own, as well as still owing her money. She works in a bookshop with her friend, Reece, who she’s had a crush on for a couple of years but never looked twice at her. Her younger sister is in college and she’s looked after her ever since their mother checked out, when their father abandoned them. So, yeah, she has her issues.
One night, Anne and Mal meet at a party, and the next thing she knows, he’s moved in with her and asking her to be his pretend girlfriend.
This was a great story. Mal is such a joker – to the point that he was even winding me up!! Anne is completely steamrolled by him and his personality. She’s knows he’s got some other agenda going on but he refuses to talk about it. What starts out as a platonic arrangement turns into something more. The lines become blurred and, against her volition, Anne puts her heart on the line. As the story progresses, Anne’s past and Mal’s secret are revealed.
The chemistry between them is fantastic. Told from Anne’s POV, we see her becoming stronger – less of a doormat – and being able to set boundaries of what is acceptable and not. I loved how much Mal cared for her and needed her in his life. Really loving this series and about to start the next book.
Both my digital copies of Lick and Play are highlighted to within an inch of their lives! Kylie manages to get the perfect balance of sentimental and laugh out loud moments. There are plenty of those in this book!! Mal is hilarious - A wicked sense of humour!
He's also quite sensitive and I think that was obvious even in the first book. These guys are a family not just a band, they care for each other. I think that became even more obvious in this story but I do wish that Mal had opened up and become a bit more serious with Anne a little earlier on in the story. Only because once he did, it ended too quickly.
Having said that I completely understand why he closed up and used humour to avoid the situation he is hiding.
We also get to see a bit more Of David and Ev in this story - they are secondary characters now but I always wanted a bit more so anything I can get, I'll take!
Kylie has set up such a good series here with the rest of the bands stories still to come. She's given us 4 rockers who are actually quite different in their own ways, which makes their stories all that bit more mysterious. I can not wait for Jimmy and Ben's stories.

I didn't laugh all the way thru this book. I absolutely adore Mal.
