Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.Goodreads

While I enjoyed Lick, I also found there to be quite a few problematic parts. First and foremost, it was not very original. I definitely felt like I’d read this plot before.
Yes, the drunken marriage thing has been done. I also love that usually one of the people involved is insanely rich in this trope, but I digress. Somehow Ev and David agree to stay married after just hours of knowing each other, and all seems fine. I was okay with this turn of events because 1) it’s romance, and 2) sometimes it does only take hours. What I didn’t love was David. In general, many of his reactions to things were just nuts. He messes up considerably, offers nonexplanation, and then gets made at Ev for leaving? That just didn’t sit right with me. There were other times in this book where David just wasn’t my favorite.
While David left something to be desired, I generally did like Ev. Though I disagreed with some of her decisions, she is young, and I understood her.
All in all, Lick was a good romance, but it is certainly not one of my favorites.
