REVIEWS

Lick by Kylie Scott has been receiving some favourable early reviews. The first is a 5/5 rating from Worlds of Wonderment.
"Lick is filled with enough angst, drama and blush inducing scenes that will not disappoint. Lick is a one sitting read that will have glued to the pages and forgetting about everything around you; bodily functions, housework, children and needy pets will fall by the wayside whilst you finish this book. I love the way Kylie tells her stories and can’t wait for book two in this series."
