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?
Dirty is the first book to the Dive Bar series by Kylie Scott. This series is also more of a Novella that makes up a series, so each book is it’s own story, yet all the stories are connected in the same world.
I didn’t know what to expect with Dirty, since I didn’t read the synopsis for Dirty. Everything was brand knew to me; new plot story, new set of characters.. New drama… What drama there was! Especially in the beginning! The drama dies down a bit after the first few chapters, but throughout the novel it will pick up and sputter out — the drama is entirely entertaining.
As much as the first chapter of this book is fucked up, the second chapter is really funny. Which I didn’t really expect, so I was laughing quite a bit not only in the second chapter but at bouts throughout the story, too.
Dirty is messy, semi-chaotic and full of emotion — in the greatest way! Vaughn and Lydia seem to live with their emotions showing to each other. They can see through their façades so easily, and that’s one thing that I enjoyed about reading Lydia’s story.
I think what was most surprising to me though, was that there was a connection to the Stage Dive series. It was so heartwarming to see said character in this story.
I love Lydia’s point of view. Yet disappointed that there wasn’t a view from Vaughn.
I ended up giving Dirty, 5 of 5 stars on Goodreads, just because I love the story and the characters so much.
Have you read Dirty? What did you think of Lydia and Vaughn’s story?
