Review: Dirty (Dive Bar #1) by Kylie Scott

Book Blurb

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?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Lydia is devastated on her wedding day when an anonymous person sends her a video of the groom to be.  She flees the scene, escaping to a neighboring house to hide out.  Unfortunately for her hiding in the bathtub isn’t the best place when the owner of the house discovers her when he goes to take a shower.  Lydia is mortified and devastated.
Vaughn is surprised to find her in his shower but decides the best course of action is to find out what’s going on.  Vaughn knows that this girl probably has a huge story behind obviously a horrible day.  She also has a nice rack which doesn’t hurt.  He offers her a place to stay for a few days as she figures out what to do.
Lydia meets his sister Nell and offers to help out at the bar.  She is accepted into the group of friends that central around the bar.  She and Vaughn become closer as their friendship grows.  Lydia has to decide what she truly wants as Vaughn decides to follow his dream.
I love this author.  I’ve read all the Stage Dive books and was sad to see them end.  Then when she announced this series I was ecstatic.  This first book did not disappoint.  It centers around Vaughn who we already know from the Stage dive books.  The author introduces us to Lydia.  Got to love her instantly.  She was by far my favorite character in this book.  She is sassy and sweet.  Her luck has been not wonderful.  She is imperfect and working through her issues.  She gets things better than most.
The rest of the characters are a mess.  I loved every one of them.  The author created a group of people that had a long history that loved each other and would have their back.  It was fun to read about how they dealt with life.  It sounded like a great place to be.  I’m a bit jealous after reading the story.  I want to work at the Dive Bar and be a part of the circle of friends and family who work there.

I loved this first book and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.  It will be fun revisiting everyone.  I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
