Dirty (Dive Bar #1) by Kylie Scott

Book Description:

Published: April 19, 2016

Format: Audio/OverDrive

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 comes with her.

Lydia Green doesn’t know whether to burn down the church or sit and 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. She narrowly escapes tying the knot and meets Vaughan only hours later.

Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessman she thought she’d marry. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and unsettled. But she 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?

Review –

The moment Vaughan finds Lydia (aka Runaway Bride) in a torn wedding gown and much of ample cleavage on display, in his bathtub, the steamy chemistry between them starts. They really have nothing in common, other than appreciation of the other’s body.

Vaughan is a failed musician who has come back from LA after ten years to his home town. Lydia has known her bridegroom to be for four months and minutes before the ceremony receives a video of him and the best man having sex. She bolts and climbs an 6-8 foot fence and see a small window open in a house next door. She climbs in, falling on her face and then Vaughan walks in.

They are “crazy at first sight” is how they describe what they have (crazy about each other) and the sex, well, it was mind-blowing. All of the sex scenes were very well done and not just sex for sex sake. Along with the hotness there is humor and that makes the story even more endearing.

Each of them say they are going to get on with their lives, Vaughan going back to LA to pursue music again and Lydia just getting on with her life having been humiliated in the press. Regardless, they fall for each other and even though things don’t go smoothly, there is a HEA and I must admit I shed a few tears.

Loved it and am looking forward to listening to Twist, the next in the Dive Bar series.

Happy New Year 2018

 

Last year I set my book reading goal at 200 books and according to GoodReads I read 230 even though my blog reading log shows 243 ( I still don’t understand why the figures won’t jive). I enjoy books from several genres/sub-genres, some being, young adult, new adult, crime fiction, foreign crime fiction, children books, poetry, mysteries,thrillers,contemporary romances and erotica, My  goal for 2018 is to review the books I feel very strongly about and to just list the others in the reading log.

I love all books, big, heavy, hard to hold hardbacks, e-books,soft cover books, etc. This year I, again, have decided not to take part in any reading challenges other than the one on GoodReads because sometimes I feel stymied by the subject of the challenge or it’s length. 

I’m looking forward to all the books in my future!
