Eu achei a leitura ok e a história tem cenas meio ridículas. A heroína descobre no dia do casamento que o noivo é gay e ao fugir se esconde na banheira da casa do herói. Os dois formam um amizade com benefícios e tem data marcada para terminar. Acabam se envolvendo e criando sentimentos verdadeiros entre eles. Os personagens secundários são interessantes e fiquei curiosa sobre a irmã do herói. ------------ I think that reading was ok and the story has some kind of ridiculous scenes. The heroine discovers on her wedding day that her fiance is gay and she flees and ends up hiding in the bathtub in our hero's House. The two heroes form a friendship with benefits that has scheduled to end when both get out of town. Become involved and creating real feelings between them. The secondary characters are interesting and I was curious about the hero's sister.
Patience is not my strongest point, but when Kylie announced this particular series, I had it in bucket loads. I floved the Stage Dive boys and when the series came to an end I was left wanting more. Thankful Kylie decided to bring to life Dive Bar and I’m very grateful she did !
I have found my new favourite place, a safe haven of fun and frolics, friendship and relationships galore. Welcome to the Dive Bar !
Lydia is one kick ass girl, from finding out your fiancé bats for the other team (seeing it on film) to climbing a 6ft fence in heels and a wedding dress, getting stuck in a window (something I’d probably do) and entering a house uninvited. She had all the sass and the attitude you wanted, but what I liked is that I could relate to her with her insecurities and body image issues. They aren’t the best but it was great to see that not every heroine in a book has to be picture perfect from the start ! I wanted to know more and Lydia had me hooked.
The first time we meet Vaughan he is in his birthday suit and there in all his glory, and Lydia, like me or any sane woman sat in a bath tub, couldn’t keep her eyes off him!
Vaughan couldn’t keep his eyes off of Lydia’s ample bust and here we found common ground. I particularly enjoyed the banter between the two, the flirting without flirting. We find that he is the guitarist from the band that toured with Stage Dive and have now gone their separate ways loving Vaughan broke and one of the reasons he had returned home.
The secondary characters are equally brilliant in their own right and each equally an essential part to the series I’m looking forward to learning more about each one. Nell is part owner of the Dive Bar and Vaughans sister, she sets him to work. Lydia can’t keep her eyes off him.
“Your Brother is hot, like smokin’ hot, honestly it’s kind of impossible to have a vagina and not look”
The dynamics between all the characters is fascinating and I over how Lydia and Vaughans relationship progressed from friends to lovers
“I’m going to kiss you know”
“Oh okay !”
Lydia fell and Vaughan fell, but before you knew it the twists and turns had you waiting with baited breath to see if they made it or not.
A bonus was the unexpected appearance of Mal ! Yay
We have reached the end. Kylie Scott I salute you for making me feel at home in the Dive Bar ! I am so hooked I plan on staying awhile, floved this book Lydia and Vaughan stole my heart.
As for Nell, Eric, Pat, Andre, Joe and Rose, I’ll see you again and I’m expecting great things.
Lydia is a runaway bride. On the day of her wedding she learns the truth about her fiancé and decides that the only sane course of action is to flee, and flee quickly. Vaughan is a musician who is down on his luck. On returning home, he’s shocked to find Lydia in his bathtub. Both individuals have their issues, but it doesn’t stop either of them from recognising the chemistry between them.
I loved this book. There’s such a fun, flirty feeling to the way in which it’s written. I especially love the way the Lydia’s mind works and the way in which the characters interact with one another. There’s a comment made very early on about Lydia’s upbringing but it’s clear that Vaughan has no such issue with it. In fact, he’s probably worse than she is when it comes to just saying what he’s thinking. Providing what he’s thinking is inappropriate and probably shouldn’t be said in aloud. Personally, I think it’s their frank conversations that help to make their self-professed ‘crazy’ relationship more believable. Some romance novels move too quickly but with these two, you’re right there with them, cheering them on, even though you know as well as they do that there’s an expiration date to whatever it is that’s going on between them. I think it’s Lydia’s feistiness that draws me to her. She’s sweet, if a little crazy but we understand why and her strange outbursts only endear her more to us, and Vaughan.
While I love the characters, the plot and the way in which it’s written, I’m not so keen on the ending. I understand that we’ll probably see more of the main characters in subsequent novels, but the ending still seemed to come too quickly for me. I’m not sure if that’s because I simply wanted more or if it’s because there were still a few things I wanted to know. Whatever it is, it’s not something that has soured my opinion of Dirty; I loved it and am already looking forward to diving back into the Dive Bar series with Twist (book 2).
Side-note: I possibly should have read the Stage Dive series first but I don’t think it hurts any to have started with the spin-off. I don’t think I’ve lost out on anything by reading this book first, but I reserve the right to change my mind once I’ve caught up with the other series, which I definitely plan to do in the near future. I absolutely loved this writer and am so glad that I gave this book a chance.

"Lydia, I've been chasing music all my life. But you're the best opportunity I've ever had,"
Omg Vaughan and Lydia were just so freaking cute. And not in a over the top, sugary way. They just fit and they were so cute together.
"Something you need to know," he said. "Before tonight." "What's that?" "I put out on the first date," he told me with a perfectly straight face. "That okay with you?" "Oh, I'm counting on it" ... "I mean . . . it would have been so awkward if you expected me to respect you for your mind or something. Yikes, how embarrassing. Between you and me, I'm really only interested in getting into your pants." The corner of his mouth twitched. "I'm sure you're a nice guy and all but, priorities, you know?"
What was supposed to be the happiest day of her life turned into the unhappiest day of her life. Or was it a lucky escape? Because Lydia definitely escaped. Being in a small town and having nothing else, she had very view choices as where to go. Until she can get right on out of there she needs to take the first opportunity to lay low. Breaking into someone's house it is. Vaughan is back in town while he tries to figure out where the music is going to take him next but he's out of that house and that town as soon as he can be.
I think what made this so good is the friendship, the banter and wit between Vaughan and Lydia. Their interactions were funny, cute and even sexy. This happens quickly between the two but it just doesn't feel like that. You just feel all the good feels!! That's not to say there's not bumps in the road because there definitely are but that's what I've come to adore about Kylie Scott's writing it's soft and quiet but packs a punch. It has everything that you need and isn't over dramatised or contrived but still does what it needs to. I just adore that. So much. Vaughan was a great guy, sweet and considerate with a couple of Jerk moments where Lydia was sassy, vulnerable at times and had a huge heart. Both were hilarious and made for each other.
"I'm crazy about you too. Crazy in all the ways the word can be taken."
Like always, all the characters are lovable. Flawed but lovable. The friendship between the ladies I loved, there are only few interactions but when it's like this how can you not love it
-----> "Can't you just accidentally get pregnant and make Vaughan stay in Coure d'Alene? I want some family around." "Um, no. Sorry." "Fine. Ruin everything, Lydia. See if I care." "Gosh, Lydia," chided Rosie with a smile. "She's not asking for much." [...] "You should just let me do what I want with your uterus."
Oh and my favorite rock star making an appearance and sharing his wisdom ;-)
"You have no idea the amount of good they can do for you between the sheets and on the streets. If you love your girl? Buy her books."
Sigh. I missed him.
All the other characters are brilliant and intriguing and Kylie Scott really knows how to set up the characters for the next book(s)!
"The last thing Vaughan 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."
The statement above is the reason why I read this book, I loved this statement. I love Kylie Scott Stage Dive series, I fell in love with the guys and girls. I didn't think she could make me fell in love with another group of people.
Vaughan Hewson arrived back at his childhood home and found Lydia Green in this bathtub having a nervous breakdown. He just got back home from touring with Stage Dive and his band Hear Down Fourth. The only reason he came home was his band broke up, there was only him and Conn left.
Lydia Green ran away from her own wedding when she was sent a video of her fiancé Chris sleeping with his best friend Paul. She just ran and climbed a fence to get away from them all. She landed in an overgrown garden which belong to Vaughan. She broke into his house and hid in his bathtub.
"I knew this was not a good situation to get caught in. 1. I'd basically broken into the guy's house. 2. And had then gone on making myself right at home, having a messy emotional breakdown in his bathtub. This was all Chris's fault, the bastard."
I love Vaughan, Lydia and all the Dirty Characters. I can't wait for book 2 Twist!! I would recommend Kylie Scott books.
Could not and would not put this down! I adored this book, I loved the characters, I loved the setting and most of all I absolutely loved the humour. This was Kylie Scott at her very best and that is saying something since her Stage Dive Series is one of my favourite reads ever! Lydia is fabulous, I want her as my new BFF, she was so darn funny that I just couldn’t take my eyes off the page. I liked Vaughan but I bl**dy loved Lydia!! Vaughan is mentioned in the Stage Dive series but if you didn’t pay close attention you might very well have missed him- I know a re-read may be in order…yippee!!! So what about Dirty …well the way they meet, the fact that Lydia is on the run from her own wedding and why, well that just tickled me. She was a hoot and from the off she never let that humour disappear. I liked that Vaughan was a little rough and ready but yet not too macho to show his sensitive site. They bounced off each other in so many ways that once they started adding friends and family into the mix, I had my fingers crossed for the two of them. And when it came to the two of them getting physical, oh my god they set the page alight! I loved the secondary characters and I also liked the way that the author set up so many scenarios for the rest of the series.
Wow this book was really awesome, I absolutely loved Lydia, she has to be one of my favourite female leads in a book, she just cracked me up. I really loved vaughan to he was great, they were just a fantastic couple and loved there story so much.
I have to say that nell and pat were another couple that really got to me and even after days after finishing this book can't stop thinking about them, they just broke my heart a bit, I'm really hoping there is going to be a happy ever after for them, I'm sure there was a lot more going on with pat especially then what I read, and please I don't want her to end up with Eric, really not liking him at the moment, hopefully when his book comes round he can redeem himself. But crossing my fingers for nell and pat.
I read and enjoyed the Stage Dive series and expected to feel the same about this one. I will not be buying any further books in this series. I almost awarded 1 star. I didn't much like Lydia and Vaughan, for all his back story and the happenings in the book, never came alive. I didn't care about any of the other characters.
This was a brilliant kick off of the new series! Lydia was a great female lead who had me laughing out loud with some of the things she was saying as well as some of the crazy antics she gets caught up in. Vaughan was so much more than what I had expected him to be having met him in the Stage Dive Series and for that I was grateful! There was nothing 2 dimensional about any of the characters in this book and I found myself getting fully sucked into the Dive Bar world and ignoring the real one around me! Cannot wait for TWIST!! Highly recommend!
I really enjoyed Dirty and thought it was a super fun read. It picks up right from page one and maintains the pace throughout; I thought this was a real page turner. It was a little insta love for my taste and I never really felt that I connected to Vaughan as much as I connected to Lydia but that aside I loved the chemistry between the two and the story comes with great supporting characters that I'm looking forward to reading more about.
