Deep (Stage Dive, #4) by Kylie Scott

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?

4 Oh Baby-Mama Drama Stars
Deep is part of the Stage Dive series. Deep is a standalone, but it’s strongly advised you read the series in order.
This is Lizzy and Ben’s story!!!!!
Lizzy is pregnant and with **GASP** Ben’s baby. (I didn’t give anything away, this is disclosed in the summary).
First off, I LOVE a single mom story and I love a single pregnant mom story even more!
I love the beginning. Kylie Scott totally punched me in the face with drama and I was just engrossed with the read.  There is foreshadowing in the beginning, just a warning because those are hard for me to overlook, but I’ll admit, it was a good one.
Ben can’t date Lizzy because she is his best friend’s little sister.  I’m a major of the forbidden storyline. I think it adds a spicy tension. Lizzy obviously wants Ben because he’s hot, talented and did I say hot?  Ben can’t stay away and one thing leads to another and you get baby (well in the tummy, but you know what I mean).
The story progresses into how Ben reacts to everything.  Lizzy has no say in the situation, she’s pregnant and she has to deal with it. I really liked how level-headed she is. No one wants to be a single mom, but she doesn’t want to “trap” Ben into a relationship.
Ben can’t do relationships. He loves his carefree life and throwing a baby/mama in the mix complicates things. He doesn’t want to abandon his soon to be family, but he just can’t do relationships.  So Lizzy and Ben form a compromise and try to work things out on a friendship level. But it’s always easier said than done.
Ben and Lizzy’s relationship felt organic to me. I understood both sides. I understood Ben’s fears and issues. I understood Lizzy’s frustrations and I love her baby-mama rants! I could completely relate. No one feels pretty pregnant and if they did, then they were truly blessed.
Deep has plenty of drama and angst to keep you happy. If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.

His laughter, it didn’t really sound the smallest bit amused. “Christ. You’re done here.”

“Ah, no. I’m actually not. Now see, this is where we have a problem.” I folded my arms. Then unfolded them because like fuck I’d look defensive. He was the one in the wrong, not me. “You’re not prepared to take me, or my feelings, seriously. What you want is to hide away in Mr. Too Cool for Commitment land and just play with my affections when it suits you. Okay, I’ve accepted that. But none of that means it’s okay for you to come in here and act like you’re the boss of me. None of it.”

“That so?” he asked, leaning down so that we were almost nose to nose.
“That’s so, baby.” I play-punched him in the shoulder, which it should be noted, I barely came up to. Okay, so maybe the alcohol on a mostly empty stomach had made me slightly/lots braver/sillier. “So why don’t you take your little caveman jealous tantrum bullshit somewhere else. See, I do this funny thing I like to refer to as whatever the fuck I want. Understand?”

He just stared.

“And as pretty as you are with your beard and your muscles, you are too damn tricky and . . . complicated and shit for me.”

“I am?”

“Yes, you are. Are you finally seeing my point here?”

“You bet.”

“Excellent. So take your hotness elsewhere, kind sir. I want no part of it!” Huh. I had so told him.
Drunken bravado was the best.
