Sy reviews: Lick by Kylie Scott


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 as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, 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 for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.

Clearly, this is exactly what I needed to read after reading something too heavy which almost made my head explode with all its craziness which I was not prepared for. I loved everything about this book! I even liked the break up and David's trust issues and secrets. Is that weird? And I liked how Ev was so honest from start to finish. If you ask me, I think other heroines can take lessons from her.

The story is light but I'd lie if I said I didn't have this huge smile on my face while reading this book. And it's hard to wipe that smile on my face when my mom just burst into my room without knocking first but whatever. Haha! Anyway, this book had the ingredients of a love story I am such a sucker for: The secret past, the other woman from the past who clearly never learned to move the eff on with her life, the oh-my-God-I-just-caught-my-man-kissing-another-woman scene (which by the way was painful to read. I seriously felt Ev’s pain there. I had to check my tears there for a second) the pain, the woo, the grovel (damn I love it when men grovel hee hee) and of course, my favorite, the happy-ever-after. So yeah, it may be a bit predictable but like I said, I dig these things. I've said it before and I'll say it again (wow I sound like Randy Jackson in AI when he's about to say, "dude, you can sing the phonebook"), I have great admiration for authors who can squeeze poetry and music into their writing. So this book having music and all into it because duh it's a rocker series then that makes me love it all the more.

On sidenote, I don't know why it's entitled Lick. Am I missing something here? There was very few licking involved if you ask me (which was very unfortunate). Hee hee. How literal of me. But anyway, in the end it doesn't matter. Lick is a very nice word. Lick lick lick. See? I just sounded naughty and creepy right there. Hahaha! Well, I guess it doesn't really matter. Actually it does to me so someone enlighten me please. ;)


I think Gavin De Graw’s Stay is the perfect song for this book. I kept picturing David when he was grovelling when I listen to this song. Gotta Have You is like my Ev’s song during the break up. Coz let’s be honest, “no amount of coffee, no amount of crying, no amount of whiskey, no amount of wine, no no no no no, nothing else will do, I gotta have you” are just the words we say when we go through that horrible break up. Although she really didn’t want him back but of course we all know better. Won’t Go Home Without You is for David when he went to Portland. Ain’t that sweet? *swoons* And When The Stars Go Blue is for both David and Ev. I remember when Ev said something about not really bothering what they did or where they went as long as they’re together. So there, I got my happy ever after in this book with my faculties intact and I'm a happy camper, ehem bookworm, again.
