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.

USA Today bestselling author of the Stage Dive series KYLIE SCOTT is a long time fan of erotic love stories, rock n roll, and B-grade horror films. Based in Queensland, Australia she reads, writes and never wastes time on the internet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the second in the series I read this series out of order. I loved the second book "Twist" so I had high hopes for this one. I was a little disappointed. The concept and the story line are really fantastic and different which is great when you read a lot of romance novels like I do but there were some unnecessary side characters and scenes that didn't really lead anywhere which were distracting for me. I still plan to read more by this author though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Get Enough! I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! I absolutely loved the Dive Bar series and I could not wait to get more of the characters that we had seen previously! I found that this particular novel put a bit of a rock and roll twist on a classic tale of a runaway bride. Despite the potential for a boring over-told story, the characters were unique in themselves and had no trouble drawing the reader in. There is something completely relatable about Lydia and her unfortunate luck. Vaughan also has a mysterious edge along with an oversized heart that makes you swoon! He can't help but look after anyone in trouble and it's honestly adorable. Kylie Scott continues to impress! Can't wait for more! Literally counting the days.... #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.25 stars-humor, spirit, hope 4.25 star--DIRTY is the first installment in Kylie Scott’s contemporary, adult DIVE BAR rocker, romance series- a spin off from her popular Stage Dive series. This is musician/bartender Vaughan Hewson, and real estate agent Lydia Green’s story line. You do not have to have read the original series to understand or follow DIRTY. Told from first person point of view (Lydia) DIRTY follows Lydia- a runaway bride- who finds herself hiding in Vaughan Hewson’s tub. On her wedding day, Lydia is sent a video of her soon to be husband sexing it up with his best man, and instead of confronting the man she is about to marry, Lydia tucks tail and runs for the hills. Only Lydia doesn’t get too far, and breaks into the neighbor’s house where she comes face to face with the ‘prettiest’ man she has ever met. Enter Vaughn Hewson-home owner- and the man who would make all of Lydia’s dreams come true. The Dive Bar is the local bar where friends meet, musicians play, and all around chaos ensues. Vaughn’s sister Nell is the co-owner of The Dive Bar, and is currently hoping for a quick infusion of cash but Vaughn’s band split when the lead vocalist went solo, and Vaughn isn’t in any position to help out his sister. What ensues is the building relationship between Vaughn and Lydia, and their interim positions working at Nell’s Dive Bar. DIVE BAR has a large ensemble of secondary and supporting characters including Vaughn’s sister Nell, her ex husband and tattoo artist Pat, as well as Nell’s staff of Andre, Joe, Masa and Eric. Eric is a piece of work-a manwhore who has found his way into his boss’s pant. Mal Ericson (Stage Dive) makes an appearance allowing for many swoon worthy moments and several sighs. There is quite a bit of humorous banter as per Kylie Scott’s writing style as well as a number of heartbreaking scenarios when Lydia and Vaughn place an expiry date on their relationship. The world building focuses on The Dive Bar-the people, the atmosphere, the behind the scenes affairs and $ex lives. The story line is fast paced, and smooth flowing. The sexual tension between Lydia and Vaughn is heightened by the playful sexual banter between our couple. DIRTY is a sexy read with lighthearted humor, and fascinating characters. The premise is spirited and oft times melodramatic; the characters are animated, colorful, hopeful and intense; the romance is a quick build to a happily ever after. Kylie Scott adds another dimension to her rock romance series with a look at the people at The Dive Bar.
