Publisher's Summary

Love - on the rocks...

The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a brokenhearted 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 altogether. 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 audiobook in the Dive Bar series from best-selling author Kylie Scott.

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    "Can I give this one 10 stars???"

    How does she do it???

    I go through periods of time where a Kylie Scott book isn't being read for months and somehow my brain forgets that I should be judging every other book against hers.

    Surely not so many 5 stars would come up if I could just remember that.

    Vaughn and Lydia's story was spectacular. Seriously. Lydia is a runaway bride and Vaughn is back into his hometown after going belly up with his band. The story centers around the Dive Bar that is owned by this group of friends including Vaughn. Lydia and Vaughn meet and are instantly connected to each other.

    The thing that makes this book stand out is not in the story itself, although it is pretty great, it's in Scott's ability to bring in humor to even the most dyer of situations and she creates these unforgettable characters that you end up loving like family. Wishing more than anything that they were real so you could hang out.

    If I could, I'd give more than 5 stars and bringing Mal back in the fray, even for a moment... this is being put as one of my favs.

    And Andi Arndt... She makes me feel Dirty as I listen to her man voice and it does stuff to me. She is my most favorite narrator, truly gifted.

    "OH THE JOYS OF ANOTHER GREAT LISTEN"

    It's an auto download for me when it comes to Kylie Scott's books because I know I'm going to be thoroughly entertained by her loveable and well developed characters who capture your imagination as well as your heart. She immediately has you locked and drawn into their lives, loves, dreams and dramas as each story deliciously unfolds throwing in humor, witty banter, passion and sex along the way too.

    And this first book in her new Dive series had all the usual ingredients that makes her books addictive, unstoppable and pretty damn awesome. Vaughan and Lydia's love story was so well written and described that I could picture each scene.... from a shell-shocked bride hiding out in a strangers bath - to the tear filled reunion and declaration of undying love.... and all the highs and lows in between. But it was Andi Arndt's narration that brought it alive, gave the hero a sexy voice and made it such an enjoyable audiobook. Told from Lydia's POV.

    Worth a credit? Oh YEAH.... it was touching and tender - sweet and sexy - romantic and dramatic.... and I loved every word.

    "What a fun, sexy book!"

    4.5 Stars

    This book was so fun! I giggled at lot at this snarky girl who's life just "fell apart" (kinda) and she is so feisty and funny! Lydia rates in my top favorite female characters ever. She is a girly girly on occasion, she is a little self conscience sometimes and she knows how to say it like it is. Vaughan is a seriously hot, kinda broody, say it like it is type of guy! These two crash into each other from the beginning. I loved their banter and honesty, oh and the sex was HOT HOT HOT too!

    Ok so here it is...the reason for the 1/2 star, I just can't get on with the insta-love thing! Even though it was done very well in this book and these characters really did have the extreme connection I just think 2 week is not long enough and it feels like major lust/attraction and I know they have an emotional connection but love??? I needed more time with them to feel the love, more events, occasions, or something that happened between them to make it feel like love, it definitely felt like they were falling for sure but it just didn't quite convince me. This is just my opinion because I feel very strongly about insta-love but honestly the book was great!

    The narration was incredible as always! I love Andi Arndt and she really does really good at the male voice too!

    "Wish the writer and narrator didn't..."

    After listening to the first Stage Dive book about Ev and David I was pleased. This different story, had too much of the same dialogue between Lydia & Vaughn as was written for Ev & David. The " babe" and "my sex" etc. references were spoke by both couples. I did like that Lydia was written as a real size person and not a barbie doll. Maybe a man will come along in some book without the perfect body so we can get a look at a skinny woman finding love with a plus size man

    "Great read/listen"

    I've been thinking about this review because I don't usually write longer reviews. I really enjoyed this book. Vaughan and Lydia were great characters with a lot of personality and Andi Arndt does a wonderful job bringing them to life. But the secondary characters were also great and well-written. This is a standalone novel, but I find myself wanting to know what happens to Nel and Pat and is Eric a manwhore with no redeeming qualities besides excellent cocktails? These are important questions and inquiring minds want to know. You don't have to read the Stage Dive series to enjoy this book, but why would you not? And one of the guys makes a visit.

    "Just amazing"

    Do yourself a favor and buy this! Such a great story! It pulls you in from the start and doesn't let go. The narrator's voice is soothing and just wonderful to listen to. In my opinion sometimes when a woman is reading it and does the male voice it sounds too forced and ridiculous. In this instance it was natural and really well done. Definitely one of my favorites

    "Not bad"

    I really liked this book (so much I will listen again) but I was expecting a bit more from the ending. I loved Kylie's previous series and I kind of expected a bit more closure. Yes the main characters end up together but too many questions remain unanswered (unlike her other series which closed each character's story giving us a HEA). I know it's a series and I can't wait to read/listen to the rest but give me a better ending.

    "Let down"

    I love the Stage Dive series and this book was a let down. I feel like alot of the story was not told. You still have questions about the characters. It was almost like there was not a story like her other books. This book is forgettable unlike her other books.

    Several, she is great!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    BOTH!!! Kylie's books always make me laugh and cry!


    Any additional comments?

    I am just burning through Kylie's books! I love this series...I dont know how I am going to wait for book 2!!!

    Lydia gets really bad news n her wedding day...and becomes a runaway bride...she is out of her mind upset and after scaling a wall she kind of breaks into a neighbors house...lol She is hiding in the shower when Vaughn comes home, he turns on the shower, gets naked...and they meet each other...he is very understanding...its quite funny...and BOOM a very unique friendship ensues....and in the end TRUE LOVE!!! I love Kylie's HEA endings....her books are perfect girlie/sexy/fun mix...and my heart gets really happy listening to them... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!

    "Disappointed"

    I loved the Stage Dive books, and this one was not to their level for several reasons.

    1. The characters are not compelling. I didn't understand or care about Lydia. What drew me to the Stage Dive books was the specificity of the central women. Lydia seemed very generic and uninteresting.

    2. Lydia has no friends. The main way the previous books showed us characters' personalities was through snappy dialogue with their friends and side characters. Since Lydia has no friends, we learn little about her personality and don't see her quirks.

    3. Dialogue is flat. There's a lot of internal monologue in this book, which leads to telling and not showing. I loved in the Stage Dive books how the story was conveyed through dialogue and how I had to infer what was really going on through what is said. This book is too much in Lydia's head, and since she's not very interesting, it's not a fun place to be.

    The Stage Dive books are excellent, especially the second one, Play. I recommend those over this book.

    "A fabulous and funny new series"

    Vaughan and Lydia's story was laugh out funny, sexy, sad, mad and very engaging - an interesting bunch of characters form part of the dive bar family I'm looking forward to hearing their stories .. Narrator Andi Arndt was top notch as usual.

    "Wow another great story"

    I loved loved loved Kylie Scott's Stage Dive series so much that I've been trying to fill a void ever since! This book is loosely connected to that series and I'm so excited to see what comes next ...

    I loved Lydia as a BBW (Big Beautiful Woman) I have been waiting for Plus Sized real women in erotica and romance storylines for a very long time. Kylie's Dive Bar Novel was just what I was looking for😊
    Having listened to the other series I was prepared to get funny looks from others as I burst out in giggles and stifled a few laugh out loud moments too!

    Andi Arndt is just brilliant and putting these too very gifted women's talents together made this book an excellent fit...

    Whilst I have loved previous books from Kylie not sure why this one never really hit the mark and as bad as it sounds I can't really put finger on it ...sorry nothing wrong with writing or narration but never connected with the characters which was such a shame the outline of the story is up there with her stage dive books ....but hey ho it will not stope me from carrying on with her books as i loved the stage dive series ..
