A Stage Dive novella
New York Times Bestselling Author

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.**

Cute story, fun characters–a nice, quick read!

Closer could definitely serve as an intro to Ms Scott’s Stage Dive series–though other series characters do show up, this is absolutely Mae and Ziggy’s story. It’s told completely from Mae’s POV, which was a bit of a bummer; the romance is fairly slow burn (as slow burn as it can be for a novella set over a shortish period of time, anyway–honestly, no movement on the romance front until around 70ish%) and I really would have liked to have seen what was going on in Ziggy’s head throughout.

I mean, loaded glances are all good and all. But I really wanted to know what he was thinking.

Still, the first part was all angsty, loaded glances with a side of suspense, and the last bit was steamy with a side of cute–overall a fun read and a nice intro to those not familiar with the author’s work.

Rating: 4 stars / B+

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

The man carried himself so well.
