✾ Synopsis ✾

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 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?

✿ My Review ✿


Just hours before her wedding, Lydia finds out that her fiancé has been cheating on her... with the best man. So what does she do? She runs away, jumps the property fence, breaks into the neighbor's house, and has a meltdown in the shower. That's when she meets Vaughan, the sexy musician/bartender, who owns the house she just broke into.
Vaughan is back to his childhood home, but he doesn't intend to stay long. Until he finds a crying bride in his shower.
Will Vaughan and Lydia keep running from their pasts or will they find a reason to stay in Coeur d'Alene?

I loved Dirty! It has the perfect amount of laughter, drama, and sexy scenes. The story hooked me from the first page and I couldn't stop reading. The banter between Vaughan and Lydia was hilarious and they made laugh a lot. And the chemistry between them? Off the charts!

I loved Lydia. She is a strong, smart, funny, and sassy young woman. Although her world was torn apart, she has a plan. But meeting Vaughan and his family and friends changes everything. Including how she sees the world and people. She never thought she could fall for someone like Vaughan, someone who is the exact opposite of the kind of man she was looking for.
Vaughan made me swoon and laugh a lot. His dreams were shattered when his band broke up and now he's back to his hometown. But he wants to get back on the road. He loves music and music is his life. He never thought about settling down. Until he met Lydia.

Once again, Kylie Scott gives us a phenomenal book! Dirty is flawlessly written, has a captivating, sexy and captivating story, amazing characters, and will hook you from the first page.
It's the perfect beginning for the Dive Bar series and I can't wait to read Twist, Chaser, and the rest of the series.

♡ Release Day Blitz ♡ Tortured by Nicole Williams @nwilliamsbooks #Live #NewRelease #OneClick

Nicole Williams

Release Date: April 9th 2017

When he left for a twelve-month deployment, she knew it would feel like forever before they saw each other again. She didn't realize how right she was.

When Lance Corporal Brecken Connolly gets taken as a POW, Camryn hopes for the best but steels herself for the worst. In the end, steel was what she needed to survive when he didn't. She moves on the only way she knows how — gilding herself in more steel.

Years go by.

She builds a new life.

She leaves the old one behind.

Until one day, she sees the face of a ghost on the news. Brecken seems to have risen from the dead, but she knows she can't perform the same miracle for herself. While Brecken was held in a torture camp for the past five years, she's been trapped in her own kind of prison. One she can't be freed from.

The man she mourned comes back to join the living, but the girl he wanted to spend his life with isn't the same woman he comes back for. Brecken isn't the same person either. The past five years have changed them both. While he's determined to put the pieces back together, she's resolved to let hers rot where they shattered.

Broken or not, Brecken wants her back. He'll do anything to achieve that. Even if it means going against the warden of Camryn's personal prison — her husband.


My head lifted. "There is an explanation."

"You don't owe me one." His head barely shook. "And it doesn't change the outcome."

"What outcome?"

Brecken did half a turn, motioning at the house behind me before indicating at me. "You belong to someone else now."

I couldn't deny it.

Yet I couldn't confirm it either.

"It's okay," he continued, his throat moving. "I'm happy to have you in my life. In whatever capacity I can. Even if it's saving my ass every once in a while when I flambé my scrambled eggs."

I stood from my seat and moved beside him. Regardless of everything else, he was alive. "I'm happy to have you in my life in whatever way too. Even if it's saving my ass from something else."

His shoulder touched mine. "I'll save your ass from whatever you need saving from."

"Hero complex?" My eyebrow lifted at him.

"Far less noble," he replied, his eyes dropping behind me. His mouth stretched into a grin. "You've got a nice ass. Totally worth saving."

Elbowing him, I feigned appall, but he saw through the act.

"I better get going. I don't want to overstay my welcome." He moved down the steps, holding the handrail as he took them backward. "Let me know what you decide to tell Crew. If you decide to tell him anything."

My arms folded as I moved to the edge of the porch, watching him lower himself one step at a time. "Things between Crew and I are—"

"Complicated. Yeah. I was listening. I know that." Brecken stopped when he stepped onto the pathway. "I don't want to make things more complicated for you, so just let me know how I can do that. Unless you want me to complicate things for you, then by all means, let me know how I can do that as well." He was joking, the glint in his eyes told that, but he wasn't entirely. His face told me that.

When I went to reply, all that came out was a sigh.

"Listen, you're with him. I know you're his wife." He was staring at me, still holding onto the handrail. Not able to let go. "If he wants to hear me say that to his face to make him feel better, I will."

"You know what question Crew will follow up with."

He nodded once. "If I'll respect the fact that you're his wife."

My silence was a confirmation.

"Well, that's simple," he said, his voice sounding like the one I remembered. It didn't waver. It didn't rasp. Brecken's eyes didn't leave mine as he backed away. "I'd tell him that I have every intention of showing him the same amount of respect he showed me when he moved in on my girl weeks after my fake execution."
