Synopsis

Love—on the rocks….

The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that come with her.

Lydia Green doesn't know whether to scream or cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it's with his best man is another thing all together.

Just when this runaway bride has nowhere left to turn, a handsome stranger offers her a broad, muscular shoulder to cry on. Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessmen she's normally drawn to. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and is facing his own crossroads. But Lydia's already tried Mr. Right and discovered he's all wrong--maybe it's time to give Mr. Right Now a chance.

After all, what's wrong with getting dirty?

Dirty is the first book in the Dive Bar series from bestselling author Kylie Scott.

    Review: Dive Bar 1: Dirty

    Dirty by Kylie Scott is the first book in her new Dive Bar series. With the title of the book AND series I wet in expecting something darker. What I got was a laugh out loud, get weird looks from your family, kind of book. It was so perfect in the delivery of the humor and the characters were so likeable (except of course for the horrible almost in-laws, we hated them). This is the first book I have read by Kylie Scott and I definitely will be reading more from her in the future. Well-paced and hilarious and absolutely, wonderfully heartwarming I loved this book so much. Don't get me wrong, it had some downer moments too but my take-away emotion from reading this was happy and positive and I'm very excited for more books in this series. Up next: Twist

    Runaway bride,sexy musician let the chaos begin

    When Lydia Green finds out her soon to be husband has been cheating on her with his best friend Paul minutes before she is due to walk down the aisle she does what any woman would do—she runs! With no one in town to run to Lydia finds herself hiding the bathroom of someone’s house hoping to get a few moments to get herself together and then get out of dodge. She never expected the owner to come home and find her a crying, dirty, bruised mess in his bath tub. She also could not have anticipated that the home owner would be the handsome stud standing naked before her. I love, love, loved this book. It was such a fun and sexy read as only Kylie Scott can provide. Her style of writing is unique and always entertaining. Lydia is a girl on the run, her life picture perfect future that she thought she was getting marrying a stable business man from a well to do family has now shattered. Leaving her with nowhere to live and nowhere to run from the tabloidesque drama that is about to unfold in their little town thanks to her dramatic exit from her own wedding. The last thing she needs is to be the center of attention. Somehow Vaughan helps her get through it all. They start as friends; Vaughan has his own troubles but from the start you can tell he’s a solid guy who wouldn’t let Lydia fend for herself when she obviously needs help. Around them there are a bunch of well-rounded characters like Vaughan’s sister she was a hoot hope she gets her own book. There is lots of sexual attraction between Vaughan and Lydia, they start a friends with benefits type relationship because Vaughan doesn’t plan on staying and Lydia has no idea where she will end up. Lydia is a real woman with real curves I love that about Kylie’s writing as well, she creates strong female characters we can all relate to or hope to be like. The characters quickly become part of each other’s lives and Lydia can’t help but fall for the sex on stick Vaughan. Personally I never fall for the gingers but Vaughan definitely converted me he’s one sexy man. There is drama, laughs, dirty sex and plenty of emotions to make for a fantastic tale of unexpected love.

    Making Friends and Sexy Time

    Vaughan was in a band that has broken up, and he's gone back to his hometown to regroup before striking out again. After finding out her fiancé is in love with his bestie, Lydia runs away, right into Vaughan. Theirs is a whirlwind romance. Lydia and Vaughan instantly see something in each other and start with the sexy, sassy banter and feelings of love. Much of the story involves a bar restaurant called Dive Bar and the people who spend their time there. Most of the cast have major history. Dirty is a spin-off of the Stage Dive series, but you don't have to read the Stage Dive books first (even though I do highly recommend them). It's a RomCom full of fun and relationships (family, friends, romance). I enjoyed this book and recommend it to someone looking for a fairly light, voluptuous, cheeky read.

    I want a Vaughn of my own!

    Loved, loved this book! Cannot wait to get more books in this series. What should have been the happiest day of Lydia Green's life ends when a video is sent to her on her wedding day of the groom and his best man doing a little Marvin Gay action at his bachelor party. Humiliated and upset, Lydia runs right as the ceremony is supposed to be starting. In a wedding dress and heels her options are limited so she decided to hide out in the neighbors cottage. After breaking in through the bathroom window and hiding out in the neighbor's showere where she finally lets herself crumble to the emotions that are tearing her apart. That is until she finds herself being drenched by the shower and face to crotch with the handsome neighbor himself. Vaughn has had a really rough couple of months. He has come home to see his sister and try to sell their childhood home in hopes of gathering enough cash to hit the road. Playing guitar in his band has been his saving grace and all he wants in life, that is until the moment he finds himself staring into the distraught face of a drenched runaway bride. I really enjoyed these two characters alot. Lydia was so easy to like to me because she molded after a very normal woman. She was not big screen beautiful, with the body to match. She had insecurities about herself but she also knew she was no ugly duckling and when she wanted to something or in this case someone she went after them. I loved how gentle, passionate and understanding Vaugh was with her. He was so great at letting her know just how beautiful he really thought she was and that in his eyes she was perfect. This couple had their ups and downs and there was some serious lol moments. I cannot wait to read more from this author and look forward to the next book in the series. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher for my honest reveiw and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

    Awesome

    Loved this book! It's my first read from this author but she has certainly gained a fan. I will be going back and reading more from her! Her writing style is very fluid and easy to read, great characters, and the story moves along at a nice relaxing pace. Lydia Green has had one heck of a day. On what was suppose to be her wedding day she discovers her husband to be has been having an affair. With his best man. Well the day is definitely memorable! He was suppose to be her Mr. Right but nothing could have been more wrong. So when she runs and ends up in the house of Vaughn Hewson, who could blame a girl for giving this obvious bad boy a second look or three. Vaughn is back in Coeur d'Alene. The last place he ever expected to be. He has some business to take care of then he's out of here again. That is until he finds a crazy almost bride hiding in his bathroom. She obviously needs help so he offers her a place to stay for the week. While they drive each other a bit crazy, there is an obvious attraction between the two. Attracted or not, she finally has a place she calls home and he has one foot out the door. Too bad really because this so obviously wrong guy could easily be her Mr. Right. Definitely a fun read. I loved these two. This is a book I highly recommend.
