Dirty is the first book in the new Dive Bar series by Kylie Scott. After the end her highly successful Stage Dive series, I wondered what would be next. I knew I was going to miss the Stage Dive members and their unique romances. Kylie Scott has successfully dived off the rock and roll stage and is now making a home in Coeur D'Alene at the Dive Bar. Pull up a stool, crack a cold one, and let Kylie tell you an entertaining story.
Lydia Green is a runaway bride after discovering her groom was having a secret affair with his best man. What's a girl to do when her dreams have been demolished? Run! Escape the humiliation. It may take climbing a six foot fence and finding an itty bitty window open in the house on the other side of the fence. An awkward climb and a crash landing in a bathtub leads Lydia to freedom and new encounters. She never would of thought she would meet the sexiest man she's ever seen or that this sexy man would change her life. First she has to face the wedding posse and shred the groom.
Vaughan Hewson has returned home to Coeur D'Alene with his tail between his legs and his dreams broken. His musical career is in the pits after his band split up after a successful opening tour with Stage Dive. He's broke, bandless, and jobless. The only thing he has is his parents old house that he has mortgaged to the hilt. It's time to sell the place and find a new direction in his musical career. First he will have to face his sister Nell, his old friends, and a runaway bride in his bathtub.
Vaughan and Lydia are both at crossroads in their lives. She has finally found a place that she wants to stay put in. He wants to get out of town as quickly as possible. At this point in their lives they are both down on their luck. As a result they form a friendship that leads to an undeniable attraction.
Living with each other and working at the Dive Bar will build an unbreakable bond and may very well be their road to happiness. First they will have to learn that dreams evolve and change. Friends and family are the glue that holds the heart and soul together.
Kylie Scott has once again delivered a fantastic, fun, snarky book loaded with quirky characters. She gives the readers a unique story with the right amount of humor, romance, hot sex, and an exceptional story.
It happens at the Dive Bar in Coeur D'Alene. Get ready to meet an incredible crew of people with very interesting, complex stories of their own.
Grab a stool, order a cold one, and get ready for a doozy of a story. Who knows who may be sitting next to you. Your new drinking companion may be a tortured tattoo artist with ex wife issues or a spastic, meddling drummer ready to tell you the perks of reading romance novels.
It all happens at the Dive Bar. It's time to get DIRTY!
What I liked:
Unique romance trope
Entire story premise
lovable heroine (because I'm very picky about book heroines)
Set-up of continuing series
What I didn't:
Some loose ends
some very hasty decision making
Lydia is a wonderfully funny and mostly confident heroine (who doesn't have some insecurities?) and Vaughn enjoys her, quirks and all. I feel Vaughn is an atypical hero, because he is (in a way) down on his luck when it comes to his career and income. On the outside, he appears easy-going, but still dealing with the loss of his parents and his dreams. I liked that he didn't fit the "millionaire" or "successful" mold of most book heroes and it made for a unique romance. Their meet-cute, or more likely meet-crazy, were some of the best scenes.
What I didn't care for were some incidents/events that happened along the way that didn't get settled, mentioned again, or resolved. Since this is a series, it's common to have a thread or two of a continuing story line that runs the length of the series. There were a few of those, but there were also a couple smaller items that related solely to Lydia, Vaughn and the events of this book that just fizzled out without resolution or explanation. As for the insta-love between Lydia and Vaughn, it was a bit fast, but not completely unfathomable. My biggest complaint is a hasty decision made between Vaughn and Lydia that I can't explain without spoilers. Some will think it was a responsible decision, while I found it to be highly irresponsible and the biggest reason I can't go up to a solid 4 stars.
The beginning is really good and so funny, the way these two meet is hilarious! I loved how the story developed!Vaughan is amazing, I'm in love with his personality! He is sweet, protective, funny and super hot! I loved how he cared about Lydia and the way he treats her! Lydia is also a great character who developed through the story! What I loved more is their instant connection and how they developed a friendship without stopping flirting with each other! And the sexual tension between these two is fantastic, I couldn't stop smiling the entire time!
“Do you believe in crazy at first sight?”
“I’m not down with the whole L-word and I don’t think this, whatever this is, is that. So don’t freak out and suddenly accuse me of being a stage-ten clinger or something, got it?”
“But what if there was crazy at first sight? Because I think we have a credible basis for that.”
Overall it was a fun and refreshing story! I can't wait for the next book in the series! I highly recommend it to everyone!
