Closer - Release and Review

Closer - Stage Dive #4.6 - 1001 Dark Nights
by Kylie Scott

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

When a stalker gets too close to plus-size model Mae Cooper, it’s time to hire some muscle. 

Enter former military man turned executive protection officer Ziggy Thayer. Having spent years guarding billionaires, royalty, and rock n roll greats, he’s seen it all. From lavish parties through to every kind of excess. 

There’s no reason some Instagram stylista should throw him off his game. Even if she does have the most dangerous curves he’s ever seen... 

**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.** 

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: In the latest Stage Dive instalment we meet Mae and Ziggy. Mae is a model and friend of Lena. As a famous model, she attracts both positive and negative attention from fans. She finds herself needing additional security after a stalker starts targeting her. Enter Ziggy! Ziggy works with Sam and is used to protecting famous people.

I loved Mae. I could see how she was friends with Lena because she has the same sassy and snarky sense of humour and hidden vulnerability. Despite her annoyance at needing a bodyguard, Mae finds herself extremely attracted to Ziggy and is torn between respecting his professional distance and wanting him to give in to her.

Ziggy fights his attraction to Mae. Protecting her is a job he takes very seriously. This leads to some funny situations, especially when he has to attend photoshoots with her...

I enjoyed the story and the crossover means we get to see some of our old favs and check in with a certain band! I would have loved more from Mae and Ziggy as well as with the other couples - this is always my issue when reading a novella instalment from a fav series, I'm greedy and always want more!

4 Stars in my Sky!
