Blog Tour & Review: Strong by Kylie Scott

Stage Dive is one of my favourite Rockstar romance series and although Martha and Sam are not part of the band they sure are part of the family and I was so excited to jump onto this tour and dive in one more time...

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kylie Scott comes a new story in her Stage Dive series… 

When the girl of your dreams is kind of a nightmare.

As head of security to Stage Dive, one of the biggest rock bands in the world, Sam Knowles has plenty of experience dealing with trouble. But spoilt brat Martha Nicholson just might be the worst thing he’s ever encountered. The beautiful troublemaker claims to have reformed, but Sam knows better than to think with what’s in his pants. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to make his heart fall into line.

Martha’s had her sights on the seriously built bodyguard for years. Quiet and conservative, he’s not even remotely her type. So why the hell can’t she get him out of her mind? There’s more to her than the Louboutin wearing party-girl of previous years, however. Maybe it’s time to let him in on that fact and deal with this thing between them. 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

No but I don't think this novella would be anywhere near as enjoyable unless you've read the Stage Dive books and understand who all the characters are and where they came from.






The Stage Dive series is a long-time favourite of mine and even though Martha is the wicked witch, I couldn't resist reading her novella and I'm so happy that it was everything I wanted!

I was worried that for this novella to work that Martha was going to have to be heavily watered down but she's not. Martha is still Martha, she's prickly, blunt and a bit difficult however this novella showed how she has grown and gave her a more vulnerable and human side that was missing in the series without erasing all the difficult history.

I thought Sam was adorable. After waiting on Martha for years, he saw his opportunity and he took it. He was all in from the get-go and it was hot, sweet and fun.
I liked them as individuals and loved them as a couple. 

The Stage Dive crew were present throughout the book providing additional humour and showing how far they've all come in their lives. I'd never had thought that Martha would find a place amongst the wives and girlfriends of the band but she did and it didn't feel forced or unnatural. 

I smiled, I laughed and I wished the book was longer.
All in all, this was perfect little side-dish to an awesome series and maybe - just maybe? - gives a sneak peak into where Kylie Scott is going next?


Typical 1001 Dark Nights but I like the Rockstar twist.
