(Can totally be read as a standalone novella - BUT Mal is making a hilarious cameo!)
5 Stars!

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.**

We're back in Portland - in the apartment building where most of the Stage Dive boys and girls live.
And curvy model Mae lives here too.
She just got back from a shooting and the doorman hands her a package.
(You don't want to know what's in there!)
After that her friend Lena decides she needs a bodyguard until they catch her stalker.
Enter Ziggy.
He's a hot as eff Executive Protection Officer and there's an insta attraction on both sides - but of course he can't let that distract him from his job - keeping her safe.
Let the fun times begin!


Aww, that was adorable.

Finally back in the Stage Dive World!
Oh Mal - how I missed you!!! He's the best thing about any and all Stage Dive books - sorry other guys and girls, but Mal is the greatest. Idiot. Mostly. But still - I just adore him.
I just copied these last few lines from my previous review - because it's still the truth! Mal was again the secret star in this novella!
But of course Ziggy is hella hot too! All tall, dark, capable and silent. No smiles from that guy. But Mae makes it really hard for him to stay unsmiling!
I adored those two!
This very short novella was funny, sparky, exciting, suspensy and I just loved reading it - loved being back in the Stage Dive world for a little while! 

ARC received for an honest review - thank you!

Woot woot! Happy dance! Daggy dance! Heck, anything that can show my excitement at being back in the Stage Dive world!

I love these 1001 Nights stories.  I love that I get a bit more of the Stage Dive family (let's be honest, any slice of Mal that I can get, I will take) however I love that we are introduced to the extended family of the Stage Dive world, and that I can read these as stand alones if I wanted to.

Mae and Ziggy's story is full of longing looks across the room,  UST and just full on wanting, whilst trying to toe the professional line.

I gotta say, I love a story where the protectee falls for the protector - there's something about a hot bodyguard in the corner that just does it for me!  I know it would be horrible in real life, but in fantasy world it is 🔥🔥🔥🔥

This short story is hot, funny, a bit of suspense and a whole lotta lovin'

It has made me want to go back and reread the Stage Dive series again (for about the 20th time!)
