WINNER OF THE 2016 AUSTRALIAN ROMANCE READERS AWARD FOR FAVOURITE CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

"There's a Lydia inside each and every female heart. Filled with knowing. Confusion. Understanding. Above all, love. Dirty is a remarkable book." Abbi Glines, New York Times bestselling author

The last thing Vaughn 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 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 all together.

Just when this runaway bride has nowhere left to turn, a handsome stranger offers her a broad, muscular shoulder to cry on. Vaughn 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 a little dirty?

I understand what Kylie Scott was attempting to achieve here. People don't always achieve their dreams of fame and fortune and there is a flip side to the Stage Dive type of success. For me it didn't gel into a classic romance and I didn't much care if Vaughan and Lydia reached their happy ever after. Also after such a fantastic series as stage dive (apart from Ben and Lizzie) I imagine it's difficult to create a new magic. To me there was no magic and Vaughn simply wasn't a nice guy. Imagine this reader, Lydia has just discovered her husband to be is gay and she escapes into Vaughans home. Through a series of supposedly funny episodes Lydia is left dressed in her bridal corset and asks Vaughan if he could provide a shirt to cover up. Vaughn apologizes and explains his luggage has been lost. Later it's revealed that he did have shirts and he just did not want her to cover her gorgeous rack. So reader if this scenario delights you then this is the book for you. If like me you like your heroes sexy, wicked, delicious and appreciative of female anatomy and most of all considerate this is not the book for you.

I was so keen for this one after discovering Kylie Scott's previous series about the Stage Dive guys. I think I hyped this one up too much for myself, I'm not sure. Maybe I didn't and it just lacked what I was hoping for in this one. Mal is my favourite character from the Stage Dive series and I honestly don't know if she can write another character that I'll love just as much. Anyways, lets give this review a try:

The book certainly starts off in the most intriguing way - runaway bride after finding out that horrible secret about her fiancé. On the day of her wedding. Then what she does after that which in turn leads her to meet Vaughan. Christ that was funny.

Not long after that we meet Nell, Vaughans sister, and I immediately find myself thinking that she's a character I'm going to really like. I wasn't wrong. She was a cracker. Straight and to the point. Loved her.

With money and career troubles on the cards for both Lydia and Vaughan, this was another aspect I was thinking would make things more interesting. Especially with Lydia being the talk of the town after what happened on her failed wedding day.

I read this one pretty quickly, but it didn't have the quirk for me that I came to expect from Scott's other books. But then again, I think Mal ruined me there. There was a lot of inner dialogue in this one, and I think I would have enjoyed it more if it was more spoken dialogue. At times I felt like Vaughan didn't say enough. Lydia's inner thoughts did crack me up quite a lot though. She's quite the hilarious character especially when it comes to her inner thoughts.

Also, without ruining it - keep your eyes peeled for a favourite Stage Dive character to appear at some point.

4.5 Stars!
I had high expectations for this book and I'm glad that I wasn't disappointed!! Loved it. I absolutely loved the Stage Dive series (ahhh Jimmy is still my fave) and our first glimpse of Vaughan had me intrigued!
Loved him and Babe, I mean, Lydia as a couple, they had great chemistry together!.
Lydia was my kind of gal, I think the author pulled of her first unfortunate circumstances really well, their first meeting was fantastic... Some humour to lighten things up which can be a hard thing to do considering how humiliated she felt! She didn't come across as dumb, a tad naïve I guess but aren't we all at some point in life, least she learnt from her mistakes!
The ending felt a little rushed I guess but only a minor complaint. Loved seeing Mal from the Stage Dive series, shame we didn't get to see them all at his cabin! It was nice to here about the Stage Dive bubs and how life was continuing for their HEA's
I really liked the secondary characters, especially Joe ( who I think is next in the series) so looking forward to more in this series!
Overall and entertaining read that I didn't want to put down!

I was really looking forward to this book after the (mostly) terrific Stage Dive series. But, I couldn't even finish this one. Right from the start, I didn't like the way the book opened with the h showing her potty mouth. I'm not a prude, and yeah, she was in an extreme situation, but it just seemed like an attention-grabbing trick by the author, which always annoys me. And then the scene in the shower/ bath. Just a tad OTT - supposed to be funny I guess but it fell flat for me. And I just couldn't like Lydia. The characterisation of her did not connect with me at all.

So, overall I did not really get hooked by the characters in this book, and the storyline wasn't the most fascinating, either. By about half way through, I was struggling to sustain any interest, and I just gave up at two-thirds. I need to actually like the characters to want to keep reading a book. And there are too many better books out there to waste time trying to finish a mediocre one.

It's a real pity, because there were terrific characters and plots in Ms Scott's previous books. Don't really know what went wrong with this one. It felt like it was trying too hard. I am willing to give the next book in this series a go, on the strength of the Stage Dive series. I hope this one was just an anomaly for an otherwise capable author.
