    this book just reaffirmed that David still ain’t shit and that Jimmy is the superior Ferris brother😌 Jimmy needs to beat this bitch up more often, honestly. David was just so pathetic lmao— i would punch this man in the face too, if i ever met him. idk how someone can be domineering and a petulant child at the same time... but David managed it. to treat a new mother like he did, the mother of his child? gross. his grovelling felt so surface-level and insincere lol. all i got from this book was tha this book just reaffirmed that David still ain’t shit and that Jimmy is the superior Ferris brother😌 Jimmy needs to beat this bitch up more often, honestly.

I wanted to love this one, but sadly it was just okay for me. When we get a novella about a favorite couple, I expect some tension or angst, even though they’ve already had their HEA. I was not expecting this. I found the beginning a bit unrealistic which was fine, but the way the couple dealt with it, David especially…. ugh. Not a fan of that. By the end things were oaky, but this wasn’t a win for me. Audio book source: Audible Story Rating: 3 stars Narrators: Andi Arndt Narration Ra 3 stars

Not so much. Dave was a man child in my opinion and Evie was way too understanding. Yes he went to therapy to “sort his feelings” BUT he was a married man to the supposed love of his life and I’m not gonna applaud him for getting his head out of his ass and going to seek help- that’s the bare minimum after the shot he pulled after his son was born. For a woman to go through what Evie went through- it’s traumatic - and this dude has the AUDACITY to make it about him!? In my opinion this failed to be one of those stories where we have a well established couple going through a “hiccup”. It was not a freaking hiccup it was a very telling situation which highlighted how much Evie needs to mother her husband because he is a fragile rock star that can’t handle it when life is not perfect.

To be honest I was a bit disappointed in David, he was a bit of a dick and I wasn’t expecting that from him. Luckily Evelyn has all the support of the gorgeous Stage Dive wives/girls who all step up to help. Everyone from the stage dive family is back in this novella. And surprise, surprise Mal’s cameo moments completely steal every scene he is in. Having said that, he is kind of a superhero in this story so he really does deserve all the attention I’m giving him. This is the fourth time we have been treated to a Dark Nights dip back into the Stage Dive series and it was awesome!

I love his quick whit and sense of humor. Kylie Scott did a wonderful job with giving us a novella that packed an emotional punch that I'm sure many weren't ready for, I know I wasn't. David actually had to win me back in this book because well, he was knocked down a few pegs with a couple of things that happened but in the end my love for all the members of Stage Dive is still strong. If you read the Stage Dive Series I would highly recommend this book to you and if you haven't I would recommend this book to you as well but it will contain spoilers as you will know each of the couples that are together, but it can definitely be read as a standalone if that is the way you wish to read it.

    What a huge let down. I was so disappointed in David's behavior. I just couldn't believe what Kylie did to our Hero. I usually reread the series every month or two but I am so upset by this huge change in David that I haven't been able to go back for a reread in months. I'm afraid I am done with this series and that breaks my heart. If there was ever any one book hero I could count on it was Dave and his love for Evie. No More! He has been ruined forever in my eyes.

    You ever read a continuation novella and it completely changes how you feel about a couple or the series in general? For me this is that book. Out of all the Stage Dive couples I have always loved Evelyn and David the best. And I have hoped for a follow up with them for years. Instead we have gotten dozens of Mal and Ann short stories and very little David and Ev. So I was super excited when I saw that David and Ev were getting a short story of their own. And all I can think after reading is “I w You ever read a continuation novella and it completely changes how you feel about a couple or the series in general? For me this is that book.

Instead we have gotten dozens of Mal and Ann short stories and very little David and Ev. So I was super excited when I saw that David and Ev were getting a short story of their own. And all I can think after reading is “I waited years for THIS?” Talk about a complete letdown. First, David was a jerk. Sure the baby wasn’t planned but he goes from reassuring his wife to basically abandoning her and their newborn in order to “get his head on straight”. Second, we are TOLD about David’s issues we are never shown them. Perhaps if this was a full length or even a short novel we would have gotten that fleshed out more, but as it stands I don’t have any emotional investment on why David is “spiraling”. Third, Evelyn was such a doormat. Her husband comes home drunk a few times and then essentially abandons her and their newborn son and instead of getting angry she just…does nothing. Even when David comes back and makes lame excuses for his behavior she just lets it slide. Sorry but no. There’s not even a decent grovel. Fourth, even a story about David and Ev become more about everybody else. Just look at other reviews and how frequently “Mal steals the show” appears. This is supposed to be David and Evelyn’s journey, I don’t need or want Mal to “steal the show”. And another thing I disliked was how Lena and Ann are just perfect mothers instead of letting us see Evelyn find her way. Basically this book was Evelyn breast feeding a kid with no name while Ann and Lena told her how to be a mother. I liked seeing Jimmy as the sensible one but why couldn’t we have gotten scenes of Jimmy reading David for filth? Fifth, MARTHA had a say in hiring Evelyn a nanny? Are you kidding me? Reiterating my third point I find it hard to believe that Evelyn wouldn’t have something to say about that. I know when reading it I wanted her to get mad and say a nanny is not a substitute for a father. But nope, Evelyn continued to be a doormat. Ms. Scott introduced a new nanny character so I am sure there will be future short stories. But I am still so bummed about how this one let me down. I used to re-read Lick all the time and now I’m just meh when thinking about it and I really have no desire to read these characters ever again.

    Rating: 2 stars What I Liked: This was fine. The actual surprise pregnancy aspect took me by surprise, and I thought that was an interesting twist, and there were other aspects of this I liked: Jimmy (my favourite hero from the original series) being the sensible one, and the focus on friendships between women and their support towards Evelyn. It was also quite easy to read. What I Didn’t: Most of this was just very bland, for me. It wasn’t my favourite example of an epilogue novella for a series.

The hero, David, acted very unpleasantly for a lot of it and that soured the story overall. I also still really dislike Mal’s character - I know that I’m in the minority on that front, but I find him very irritating and not very funny. Overall: I don’t know - I bought this because I thought it would be cuter and I wanted to see glimpses of the other characters in the series, mainly Jimmy and Lena, but I just ended up feeling a bit disappointed. They were never my favourite couple in the series, so maybe it was on me for buying this despite that. But for what it was, it was okay. Would I Recommend It?: I think if you’re a fan of the original novels, there’s probably a lot here you could enjoy. Would I Read Something By The Author Again?: Yes, but not based off this book. Content Notes: (view spoiler)[Warnings: Mild violence, vomiting. Other: On-page sex, unplanned pregnancy, childbirth (on-page). (hide spoiler)]

    Not my favourite I'm afraid. David was a dick and then when he did screw his head back on, took over in all the life decisions and kind of, sort of, checked with Ev - but basically steamrollered her into decisions without discussing them as a couple. It's well written in such that during their moments of conflict it brought back all of what I experienced as a first time mum clashing with her partner. But it was missing the humour that Kylie's books normally have in spades and I'm afraid for me, ev Not my favourite I'm afraid.

But an unexpected pregnancy is about to make a big mess of their beautiful lives. Or not??? "Parenthood was no joke." As I was reading this story, I could totally relate with this couple in so many levels... The unknown of a pregnancy is a big issue full of stressful moments, especially as it came on the Ferris family was totally wild and hard to be accepted.... David and Evelyn found themselves in a situation that they didn't want and that they didn't think that they needed at the moment and things got out of track for a while... I loved seeing them like that!!! They were raw and real!!! Who wouldn't have his/her doubts when a baby would come along, unexpectendly or not??? "There was a wall between us now. One I didn't know how to begin to take down." This was a lovely addition to this series, even if it was a small one... I love getting glimpses on these guys throughout the years... I'm always enjoying Mal's silliness and the dynamic that these eight have between them... I'm always down for another one taste, small or big I don't really care!!! I love my Stage Dive crew sooo much, even though I have many years that I've firstly read their stories!!! "We were two halves of a whole and always would be." **I received an ARc for the exchange of an homest review**

    Oh how I love Mal Ericson and yes, this is a book about David and Eve, but it wouldn’t be a Stage Dive book without Mal being, well Mal. However, we see a different side of Mal in this book, sure he’s still his crackpot self always quick witted, always a bit off center, but we got to see him taking charge, keeping things calm, and helping in a way he probably never figured.

However, we see a different side of Mal in this book, sure he’s still his crackpot self always quick witted, always a bit off center, but we got to see him taking charge, keeping things calm, and helping in a way he probably never figured. I loved this story not only because of Mal but because it explores how parenthood changes a couple both individually and as a couple. There were was light and fun moments in this story, but it also tackled some serious subjects as well. David and Eve had a plan for their lives together and 7 years after their impetuous wedding in Las Vegas, they are doing well. Still very much in love and still very much with a plan to start a family in five years or so, Eve’s coffee shop is doing well and she loves her business and Stage Dive is still selling out stadiums and touring regularly so a surprise baby wasn’t quite what they planned. Ev was overwhelmed with being a mom, the hormone imbalance, the lack of sleep and the last thing she needed was David not being there for her. I get that he was also overwhelmed, but the way he went about correcting his actions IMHO did not paint him in a good light. I feel the Evelyn let him off the hook way too easy and I get that she just wanted some normalcy back in their lives, but she deserved a better apology and a man who didn’t give up when life got hard. I loved seeing the rest of the band members with their families and seeing how they’ve changed (Jimmy) and how they’ve not (Mal) and listening to the women discuss how parenthood changed their lives and their men. I absolutely loved being back in the Stage Dive world, loved the big dose of Mal especially, and thrilled there’s a new baby for the Stage Dive part deux band (lol).

The writing was good as always with Kylie Scott but David's character just made for an eh read.

    not the usual I’ve liked the rest of the stage dive books but this one just didn’t do it for me. I would have rather not had this at all and just left it as the books had ended. Don’t want to post spoilers but the situation that happened was taken way too lightly and forgotten about too easily.

Now, I am no stranger to an unexpected pregnancy in the stories I read, but hoolie doolie, that was some kind of surprise baby! I liked that it wasn't all rainbows and unicorns for our lovelies David and Ev, and it showed the real struggles of parenthood. But again, the not-supposed-to-be-but-he-can't-help-it star of this story was my man Mal.He really is a man child most of the time, but I loved how he stepped up even more in this tale. Get thee to a book seller and get yourself a copy of The Rhythm Method - stat! a>

    4 stars! This is a quick read that revisits with the very first Stage Dive couple, David and Evelyn, as they embark upon the biggest adventure together – first time parenthood. This probably could be read as a standalone, though why would you? You won’t know who anybody is, and though there is some background given, you’ll be missing a heap of context. Plus this series is awesome, so do yourself a favour, and read those first. David and Ev’s baby is a surprise in more ways than one, and their road 4 stars!

Plus this series is awesome, so do yourself a favour, and read those first. David and Ev’s baby is a surprise in more ways than one, and their road to parenthood is definitely not what I expected, but it makes for a great story, and I loved the way it all played out. Like any parents, they have difficulties to face – more than most, which created a really interesting situation for them. As much as I enjoyed the beginning, this wasn’t the story that I wanted for David and Ev, though I guess that was the point, to show us a difficult time for them and how they overcome it. I was disappointed at some of the behaviour, and my heart honestly ached watching it all unfold. But the strength of this couple (with their friends and family at this back) is gorgeous, and I loved watching them find their happy in this exciting new stage in their lives. I love being back with this group (Mal, as usual, is winning at everything). This series is one of my all-time faves, so getting to see all of the characters together again was such a treat. There are hints of more Stage Dive stories to come, and I’m excited. In the meantime, I’m about to go and start listening to them all again, because I can never get enough! Loved this one – 4 stars.

It was nice visiting with the MCs from the Stage Dive series and I liked how the author focused more on the relationships between all the women without excluding the men. However, I can't say I miss seeing Ben as he was my least favourite hero of the series. (Sorry.) It has been almost ten years since I first read the first book Lick, and I see that my tastes have changed and in all likelihood (hopefully) matured. I found that the writing style was no longer for me; the singular first 2.5 stars.

I found that the writing style was no longer for me; the singular first person pov of Evie was didactic and kind of one note. I liked seeing Mal, Jimmy, and the ladies through Evie's eyes, but I really think that for such a short work, we really needed to hear from Dave too. The fact that after seven years of marriage, Dave is still doing the same stuff that he did in the first book kind of makes me worried for their HEA. Overall though, I'd have to say that Kylie Scott did portray Dave and Evie's marriage quite realistically. People aren't perfect and people can change. But doing the same stuff after seven years? I just don't know.

    3.25 stars This is a little novella giving another glimpse into the HEA for the Stage Dive crew, showing that those HEAs can be work at times, but the end result is always worth it. Everybody's individual families are expanding and while I was prepped by the blurb for it to be an unexpected pregnancy, considering it's David and Ev's couldn't just be your run of the mill, oh no. So that was a thing that I was not expecting but I'll give it points for being different lol.

So that was a thing that I was not expecting but I'll give it points for being different lol. This will definitely be divisive and not for everyone. While different, I did appreciate that within its short page count, this attempts to deal with the fallout of that surprise in a way that still gave some tension and drama to an established HEA. Anyway, I loved seeing this band's ties are stronger than ever and supporting each other through thick and thin. Mal is and always will be my fave in this series so I adored the part he plays in this book. This is short and sweet and really is meant for completists/fans of the series, because that's the best way to enjoy these ties that bind. **ARC provided by PR in exchange for an honest review**

    3.5 stars. The Rhythm Method is a novella set in the Stage Dive world. It focuses on David and Ev, from the book Lick, whose worlds are rocked by a suprise birth, like something right out of the tv show "I didn't know I was pregnant". Now they find themselves parents completely unexpectedly and, even though they did want to be parents someday, the reality of it really shakes up their lives. I love David and Ev as a couple and loved them in their own book, as well as the other books in the series 3.5 stars. The Rhythm Method is a novella set in the Stage Dive world.

I love David and Ev as a couple and loved them in their own book, as well as the other books in the series. But I really hated the conflict and some of the behavior between them in this book. It seemed immature and made me doubt their love somewhat, especially David's behavior and treatment of Ev. Also, while I thought the suprise pregnancy aspect was interesting and fun, I didn't find the baby or birth details realistically written at all. Still, I liked the book in general and enjoyed being back in the Stage Dive world with the other characters I love. However, I did feel like it lacked some of the love and nostalgia I expected to find. However, I will continue to be a fan of this series and look forward to what Kylie Scott comes up with next. *arc provided in exchange for an honest review*

When Kylie Scott revealed that she's writing a novella for David and Eve, I was beyond ecstatic because I did asked for this! I just can't get enough of them. David and Eve has been married for 7 years, they have been together ever since their unconventional wedding, and now they have to face yet another unconventional moment, which is Pregnancy. They have planned their lives, they settled for being together and enjoy each other's company after the world tour and crazy fame and having a child of their own is not yet in the picture. It's no wonder that this book is about pregnancy. The surprise brought the couple to have doubts and crack in their marriage. They were forced into Parenthood, it was hard especially to Eve being a new Mom, but I love how the other Stage Dive women were all helpful towards her. I freaking love Mal here, he is just phenomenal and funny as always. This book made me a little sad especially on David's part, but I try to understand where he is coming from and I am satisfied that he asked for help. It may not be the way I want for their story but I was given something different and I still love reading about the Stage Dive Family.

I NEVER imagined that David would behave so selfishly. As a mother, I don’t know what I would have done if my husband behaved the way he did in reaction to fatherhood. Motherhood was just as much of a shock to Ev as fatherhood was to him. Did she get to get drunk and run away? No effing way. Someone had to be a responsible, loving parent while he got drunk and behaved like a spoiled self-centered brat. Ev forgave him for his abandonment wayyyyy too easily. Also, I don’t understand why David would think hiring a nanny without Ev’s input was appropriate, and why the f*ck would Martha have a say? (No, I will NEVER get over Martha having her own book, and her being accepted into their lives in any way. She is a despicable character who is irredeemable.) I don’t understand why David ghosted Ev when she texted him after he stopped coming home. This book will forever mar my enjoyment of the Stage Dive series. When I re-listen to the series, the knowledge that David was a douchebag in this book will seriously diminish my love of Ev and David’s love story, and my view of David as a loving brother, great friend, and awesome husband. For David and Ev’s baby story, I give this book ZERO stars. For the love, support, and kindness from the rest of the Stage Dive family, I give it 5 stars. The average is 1 star, which breaks my heart.

    Insert Sad Face Here This was not what I thought we’d get with a Dave and Evie novella. This author is such a beautiful writer but this wasn’t for me at all. David and Evie get the surprise of their lives. It would have been a rough adjustment for anyone. Unfortunately Evie gets to experience this adjustment alone so her husband can be a selfish man child. I may have felt better had their been a serious grovel but no luck.
