Publisher's Summary

Winner, 2017 APA Audie Awards - Romance

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.

    "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.

    "Another Home Run for Andi Arndt & Kylie Scott!"

    Just finished Dirty by Kylie Scott narrated by Andi Arndt. Let me tell you, I LOVE STAGE DIVE...HARD but Dirty is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!! Kylie Scott always makes me laugh, get a little weepy, and worry. I love Lydia so much. She's one of the best heroines ever, imho. Ballsy but still doubts herself, hilarious, confident, kind, and not rail thin!! Holy crap, she's fluffy!

    If you haven't listened to Kylie Scott's books, please do. Andi Arndt absolutely kills them. She turns a great amazing book into an out of this world event. I really really love the little world they create where I can escape and spend time with some fantastic characters. Well done ladies! I can't wait for the next Dive Bar audiobook!!

    "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

    "DOWN AND DIRTY WITH THE DIVE CREW"

    I can’t even begin to describe how much I enjoyed this book. From the opening sentence of the first chapter, I knew this book would become a favorite of mine.

    I read all of Kylie Scott Stage Dive Series. I was heartbroken when the last book was released because that meant I was saying goodbye to characters that I have grew to love. I have shared countless moments of me laughing in my cubicle, while my coworkers wondered what the hell was wrong with me. So imagine my happiness when I ran across this book and realized it was also narrated by Andi Arndt as well, SCORE!!!

    We recall Vaughan from the Stage Dive series. His band has broken up and he is back home in his hometown; only to discover a distraught female in his bathtub, still wearing her wedding gown. Lydia has just had what should have been the happiest day of her live ruined. A video was sent to her phone, with her soon to be husband getting it on with his best man. Seriously!!! She does what any mildly rational bride does, she high tails it out the backdoor, jumps the fence and hides out in the neighbors bathroom tub and has her meltdown in private. That was until the naked neighbor appears waiting to take a shower. What’s a jolted bride to do….

    Kylie always writes a book that delivers a hilarious good time, no matter the drama that is present. Her witty dialogue and off beat sense of humor, kept me laughing throughout the book. Pairing her book with Andi, just seems right. Some authors and narrators just fit together. Like Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, Kylie and Andi make a fantastic pair.

    IMO, buy the book and get ready to enjoy a hilarious, well written book.

    "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.

    "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!

    "Great story"

    I loved the feistiness of Lydia and the charisma of Vaughan. The author did a great job of bringing out the personalities of the characters. I really enjoyed the craziness of Lydia. I laughed throughout this book and the situations and the things that the characters do and say. This is a well rounded book. The narrator is one of my favorites. She does such a great job that it is very easy to see the feminine woman and the masculine man with her voice. Looking forward to more of Kylie Scott's books.

    Story
    "I regret to say that this is Chick-Lit. So un-PC."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the first few chapters. They are funny, the narrator delivers both the story and the humor in skillful ways. However, soon after these chapters the book devolves into soap-opera-ish drivel: so much gossip, so many who-is-fucking-whom, and who talks about it, etc. I really do not wish to insult my female readers, but there is a lot better writing out there than this book. I suppose that Lydia's frankness about her desires, and her vivid language, stand out from other books in this genre.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Vaughan Hewson is just too much Adonis to be believed. His every touch thrills Lydia, his every kiss shakes her to her knees, his every syllable is hung on, etc. He needs to be toned way down and made more real. Everything about him is perfect, and that just does not ring true. The plot gimmick in the beginning is a bit clever, but the emotional importance of it is stretched out to the point at which one wants to say to Lydia "Get over it!" The cast of characters is much too incestuous. The cafe is pretty believable, both the bar and restaurant being described in realistic terms. I wouldn't presume to tell the author how to improve her book: she has editors for that.


    What three words best describe Andi Arndt’s performance?

    These "three word" questions annoy me. A novel, and its narration, are way too complex to describe in this simplistic manner. I enjoyed her reading most of the time, although the text requires her to be over-the-top so much that it borders on the hysterical.


    Did Dirty inspire you to do anything?

    No. To look for more enjoyable books, I suppose.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    "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 ..
