Published by St. Martin's Press Source: Publisher
Its Lydia’s wedding day which should be one of the happiest days of her life, but just before she is ready to walk down the aisle she receives the shock of her life in the form of a video. When Lydia opens the video and sees her soon to be husband and the best man involved in intimate acts she knows she has to get out of there. Without thinking this through she leaves him to deal with the mess and plans the great escape. She never thought she would end up in someone else’s bathtub or come face to face with a naked man who is looking for some answers on how she came to be in his house.
Dirty was absolutely hilarious! From the moment the story started I was drawn to the dialogue and the banter between Vaughan and Lydia. Upon their first introduction I could feel the attraction and wondered how long it would take these two to make it to the bedroom. But when they started to become real friends and began telling each other things that no one else knew I knew that their bond was growing deeper. While Vaughan might have been the opposite of who Lydia was picturing herself with, he really was a great guy. He didn’t have to give her a place to stay while she was getting back on her feet, but he was not only intrigued by her and her breasts, but genuinely interested in her as a person.
There is always pleasure in finding a new series that has wonderfully written characters and comedy that isn’t only entertaining but welcomed. Kylie Scott is a new author to me so when I started Dirty I didn’t know what to expect but staying up well past my bedtime was worth it. The one thing I would have liked to have seen was the story told in dual povs. I wanted to get into Vaughan’s head instead of just Lydia’s. Although Lydia was very entertaining it sometimes felt a little one sided. It didn’t take away from the entire story, but could have possibly made it a little better.
I also really enjoyed getting to know the secondary characters and how they were going to fit into this series. With every new group of characters there will be a certain amount of drama and I have to say Ms. Scott did not disappoint on that. There were a few shocking and jaw dropping moments that have me eagerly awaiting the second book, Twist, in the Dive Bar series.
