    4 stars!!! I love Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series, so when I saw there was a new novella coming out, I was more than a little excited to read it! When I saw it was Martha’s story, I had mixed feelings. Martha is a character you kind of loved to hate and hated to love in these books. Either way, I was still excited to get to it. And I'm pleased to say I found myself really enjoying it! Martha is David’s ex and Ben’s sister, so she’s a bi...

    Quick, cute, and sweet. This book is a fast read but one to add to the StageDive pile for this author. Sam Knowles the strong body guard for the Stage Dive Group somewhere along the line in the many years he’s known Martha Nicholson, fell deeply in love with her. So when he finally makes his move it’s a fast moving romance that sweeps us off our feet.This story is told all in the Heroine POV. I wish we could have gotten more of Sam’s view. ...

    I love reading about rockbands, it's actually one of my favorite genres and the more famous they are the better. So it shouldn't be a surprise that the "Stage Dive" series is one of my all time favorites. Especially "Lead" ... I have a major Jimmy crush going on and so I re-read his book all the time !!When I found out this little novella was gonna be about Martha and Sam, I was very curious to see how the author was gonna pull this off. Martha...

    It's good to be back...I absolutely LOVED catching up with the Stage Dive gang, and to be honest, I think Kylie Scott did me a favour by making it Novella length. We'll blame it on my SHOCKING memory, but I struggled to even remember Martha. With the little bits of info I was given in Strong, I kind of pieced together what had happened previously. By having it novella length, mixed with my bad memory, I think it helped me get to know Martha witho...

    This is a short but sweet Stagedive story...This is one of my all-time favorite romance series, so this little novella was like the cherry on top of my Stagedive Sundae... but no worries if you have not read the series yet this book will work as a standalone... it will be the appetizer to your Stagedive meal, because believe me you will want to continue with the series after reading this! It was so much fun revisiting the band... and even though ...

    We all remember Martha from the Stage Dive series. She's Ben's sister and Davie's ex and she caused a lot of trouble in the books. And now she's back in Portland to be the baby sitter for Ben and Lizzie's 2-year old son Gib while Lizzie goes back to college. She tries hard to not be the b*tch she used to be. But life has not been the best buddy to her these last years. She's been lonely. She missed the whole gang. Especially Sam. The band's bodyg...

    4.5 STARS! I absolutely LOVE Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series, so when I found out there was a novella coming out and it was about Martha, I had to have it!!! You see, I have a hate/love relationship with Martha ever since Lick, but everyone deserves a second chance and Martha has redeemed herself y'all! I enjoyed this mini slice of heaven so much 😍.If you haven't read the Stage Dive series then I don't know what you're waiting for. Do it, you ...
  • Tpagirl
    Strong was a Stage Dive Novella by Kylie Scott. I loved the Stage Dive series. Frankly, I loved all of Scott’s series to date.Strong was a follow up to Martha, Ben’s sister and the lead Security for Stage Dive, Sam. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this one since Martha had done some horrific things in book one, Lick, in order to keep David and Evelyn apart. However, it was good to clear the air, especially since Ben was such a great g...

    4 'Gibson Thunderbird' starsOk, so I was never a fan of Martha, 'cause duh, she was annoying as hell. But Sam and her being together... why not 😄 I've loved Sam since the first book ❥ I had a hard time believing that Martha would actually redeem herself here, but yes, she was almost adorable. And Sam was, of course, sexy as hell. However, it was Gibson Thunderbird aka Gibby, that completely stole the show. (He's Lizzy and Ben's two-year-old ...

    I am a diehard fan of Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series and could not wait for this story! Martha and Sam were absolutely delicious. They were fun, sexy and absolutely on fire. I loved their banter and their connection and this quick and hot novella!If anyone was to ask me which Rockstar series is my favorite, without a doubt I would say this author's Stage Dive series. OMG the banter and comraderie between the band and the wives was absolutely ama...

    I just can’t get enough of the Stage Dive family and this little peek back into their lives was a delicious serving! This is very much Sam & Martha’s story but intermingled are all the other characters I’ve come to know and love.Martha is Ben’s sister and has come to stay with him and Lizzie to help care for her nephew Gibson. She has a bit of history with David and caused a few issues between him and his wife Ev but that was so many year...

A bunch that at that time, i had love very much!!!Yep, this sweet and fast novel wasn't about them, but they had a big part in there...This story was about Martha, Ben's sister and evil David's ex and Sam, the head of security of "Stage Dive" band...Martha was a little bitch and she had a thing for Sam, even though that she didn't wan...

    You can see this review along with an excerpt here Nadine's Obsessed with Books1,001 Dark Nights and Kylie Scott have brought us back to the Stage Dive world and I couldn't be happier. If you haven't read the Stage Dive Series no worries because this can be read as a standalone but I will warn you that once you read it you will want to know more about the band members and how they each got their HEAs.It's been a while since I have read the Stage ...

    I was so excited Kylie Scott was writing this novella and diving back into this series (see what I did there LOL), and I wanted to love it and while there were elements of Strong I really enjoyed, sadly I just could not get into the romance aspect of this book. I’ll admit I can carry a grudge and I have a big one, no scratch that a HUGE one against the heroine in this book and while I loved the hero, his insta-love with a stark raving lunatic b...

    Quick(ish) ReviewStrong by Kylie Scott 3*It’s good for those have read the series and want that last little taste of their HEAs, because those are my favorite scenes, no doubt. Getting to hang out with the Stage Dive again was a blast and exactly as I’d expect. If you’ve come just for the new romance though, it was ….not my favorite. As much as I’d wanted to get into There’s little there to entice and it wraps up in a way that didn’...

    3.5 badass and the bitch starsI will take any chance I get to revisit with the boys of rock band Stage Dive, which is why I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this novella. Though it can be read as a standalone, it will definitely mean more to fans of the Stage Dive series as we get to go back into their world for a different kind of romance. This is the story of Martha and Sam. Martha is the sister of Ben, from Deep, ex-PA for the band, and the ...
  • Saly
    I didn't care for this at all. The romance didn't work for me and I wasn't feeling the characters. Honestly, I don't find Mal's lack of a filter cute at all instead it is irritating. The band members seem to live in each other's pockets. Also I vaguely remember the h being the antagonist in the first book I think.

    I am not usually one that gravitates to novellas. They tend to leave me wanting more, or simply don't leave me sated...but when I saw this one, I SIGNED THE FUCK UP! I loved LICK like it was my job...I've read and loved the whole series but David and Ev...they were my favs. SO when I saw Martha was going to have her own story I was not only surprised but in full anticipation mode. I love it when an author takes a nemesis from another story and ma...
  • Rebecca
    It was so AMAZING being back in Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series; I adore these rockers, their women, and their shenanigans, especially from a certain drummer;) So, anytime I can reconnect with Mal, David and the rest of the band in their world, I call it a good day. But, I can’t even begin to express the trepidation I felt when I saw that villainess, Martha Nicholson, was going to be the female lead in STRONG. Fans of this series know exactly...

RECEIPT OF THIS BOOK IN THIS MANNER DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK OR THE CONTENT OF MY REVIEW!

    Who knew I'd grow to love Martha? I sure didn't know. But that is exactly what happened.From the beginning of the Stage Dive novels (which, by the way, you do not need to read first) Martha was...well...a witchy woman. She's all growed up now though. She's matured, yet still keeps that strong backbone and quite a thick veneer.Sam sees her for exactly who she is, however. Turns out, he always has. And he's not letting her call the shots right out ...

    "He made me wish I knew anatomy better. So I could put a name to all of the bumps and bulges in his shoulders and arms." I devoured this delicious taste of my beloved Stage Dive series. Yes, it can be read as a standalone, or introduction to the author. But, if like me, you are already a fan, you will melt into a puddle when you get to spend time with the band family again. I was in heaven hanging out with that crazy crew and their families. Wh...

    *3 Stars* ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review. As much as I love the Stage Dive Series, and Kylie's books, this one just wasn't that captivating to me. I couldn't connect with either of the main characters, and things seemed to move way to fast for me.This may be a personal thing for me, because obviously with the book being a novella, it is only short, so there isn't a lot of room to elaborate the same way as in a full length n...
