Summary (from Goodreads):
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 irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? 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 now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly 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 connection of the heart?


All good things must come to an end, including the Stage Dive series. I was so bummed when I started this because I knew there weren't anymore waiting behind it for me to grab. Sigh. Kylie Scott got me good with this series. She got me real good.

DEEP is Ben's turn, and holy crap. It starts off with a bang when Lizzy, Anne's little sister (Anne and Mal are in book 2, PLAY) gets pregnant. The lucky baby daddy to be? You guess it: Ben.

On the periphery of the series, Lizzy and Ben and have dancing around each other and we get more of that back story with old text messages and scenes that happened during books 2 & 3. DEEP ties all those books together and shows that Ben and Lizzy aren't just a random hookup. There's a lot more depth and layers there.

Lizzy has been my favorite since I met her in book 2. I love her spunk and sass and attitude. Ben I never really got a feel for because he was always in the background. He rarely did much besides play bass and crack the occasional one-liner. It was good to see a bit more of him.

I will say this book was the one that lacked the most substance (but it's also the shortest in the series by far). It felt a bit rushed in places, but it's still a great way to end the series (that epilogue.... <3 love="" series="" span="" ter.="" this="">
