Foxy’s review (5 stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★)
Stage Dive series has some of the best opening scenes. I love in book one, ‘Lick’, when Ev wakes up after her 21st birthday to find out she’s married to a rockstar and she can’t remember the previous night. Deep doesn’t disappoint in having a great opening scene… like the blurb mentions Lizzy finds out she’s pregnant from a rockstar.
YES! We finally learn about the mysterious, Ben, of Stage Dive. He’s the quiet one who is always running off whenever he is in a scene in the previous books. Especially in Jimmy’s book (#3). The one scene that stuck out in my mind from that book left me curious to what was up with Ben. It took place when Jimmy set Ben & Lena up on a date and he tagged along to give dating advice. The whole situation was actually pretty funny. But in the middle of the date Ben gets a text and he takes off. Well, now, in this book, we know what the text was about and why he ran off. Mystery solved!
Ben may be older than Lizzy but his maturity level on becoming a father makes him emotionally younger than Lizzy. He had never planned on being a father and now that it’s a reality he’s faced with what role he’ll play in this child’s life.
An aspect I like in rockstar, mc, and college genre books is when the heroine makes the hero jealous. It seems genre appropriate and DEEP has some moments where I was cheering for these scenes.
I’m sad that this is the end of the road for the four band members because these books were extremely entertaining. Even though this series is complete every time I head to Portland I’m going to be searching for a Stage Dive concert or a band member hanging out at VooDoo doughnuts.

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.”
“Yes, you are. Are you finally seeing my point here?”
“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.
Meet Ben and Lizzy!

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?
