From the Back Cover
Working as a bartender at his brother's bar helps Justin pay the bills. But being around Eric, the cool brother, certainly hasn't helped him come out of his shell.
But family is family, so when Eric asks for help setting up his online dating profile - after all, he's dated just about every woman in town - Justin can't say no. And soon Justin finds himself conversing, under the guise of his more handsome brother, with Alex, a woman in New York.
Online, the two are a match made in internet heaven. They soon find themselves baring their hearts to one another and sharing secrets they've never told anyone before. But when Alex decides to turn up as a surprise, the deception unravels. Is their connection strong enough to survive a series of shocking twists?

The storyline was fun and I liked seeing them come together. Sadly I found the ending very rushed - from about the 70% mark the storyline flow was disrupted, and several major events occurred with little to no buildup or follow through. Given the book ended on this note, it let down the rest of the story which was of the usual standard for this author.
Hopefully the next book picks back up and doesn't rush.
The first 70% of the book was fantastic and I love seeing Joe and Alex develop their romance, it had this authors usual stamp of humours banter and situations that had me really enjoying the dive bar characters!
It was the last bit that had me raising my eyebrows and saying.... what the!!! It almost felt that Joe had a personality overhaul and his behaviour was a bit odd. Alex then turned into a clingy doormat who got walked all over and then she ran!!! Yep really crappy circumstances/events but it was a bit like two different characters had emerged. Then the super quick reuniting of Nell and Pat was all a bit much!!!
Loved seeing the little snippets of Mal and Jimmy and the bubs! Overall and enjoyable read and even though the ending left me a little bit meh....I most definitely will be continuing with the series.

I'm a big fan of this authors and am perhaps still too attached to the Stage dive series to make an impartial judgement on her other books. And this book was fine, enjoyable, worth the money; but just not as good as I expected. I thought the first 40% dragged too much...Then up to the 80% point was great, then the last 20% I seriously wanted to punch him for this ' woe is me ' rubbish he seemed to allow himself get rutted in, and I wanted to just make her leave and stay gone. She was one of those irritating friends you have all your life, that you always try to help, look after because she's pretty much twitchy about her own shadow, and that you finally as an adult have to reduce contact with because her ways just affect your own happiness too much. Did I like her? yeah. But would I want her on my 'Friday night out with the girls ' list? No. Likeable but irksome.
And that for me for the first time in one of this authors books was the tone of the book. Likeable but irksome.
The story begins with Alex Parks appearing at the Dive Bar on a random to meet Eric Collins, Joe’s brother. It appears that judging from the beginning of the book that Eric and Alex have been conversing via online dating for a while before she takes a leap of faith and goes to meet Eric for his birthday.
But this was expected, as to be fair, there wouldn’t be a book if there wasn’t at least one disaster to be fixed!
What follows is one of the best written contemporary novels I’ve read in a long time; there was plenty of humour and drama, characters to fall in love with and a storyline of catfish proportions. There was a perfect balance between the two main characters and the secondary characters with little friction but with a quick & wicked sense of camaraderie between all the Dive Bar and Alex.
You know how a book is generally considered good when part of the plot gives you a sucker punch to the gut like no other? Twist had this and it had it in spades. I was already feeling poorly and receiving this ARC made my week; that one section though. Kylie – no word of a lie, brought a little tear to my eye. Such a hard hitting side arc.
At first I was a little off put by Alex as she seemed really uncomfortable in the situation but as the story progressed Kylie explained the whys and wherefores and it made her reactions to certain things make all the more sense. Joe was just as mysteriously bearded as he was in Dirty and it was lovely to see the other side to Joe that we see in this book.
It was a little shorter than I expected – length wise – but it was incredibly fast paced and before I knew it I’d blasted through 20% in under 15 minutes which is another sure fire sign of a great book.
Kylie’s writing has done nothing but improve over the course of her books and another great part about Twist? The Stage Dive boys & girls were back in town! The ending was perfect and I mean that in all the ways. I need the next book Chaser ASAP.
It’s hard reviewing this book without giving away any crucial details.
Joe is shocked to meet Alex and she is horrified that she has been duped by Joe into thinking that she has been talking to Eric for months. Based on appearances Eric is far more her type ... or so she thought. It doesn't take long for her to realise that Joe may be her type after all.
I really liked Alex . She was fragile in some ways but I admired her determination to push herself (and Joe). Watching her gain confidence and grow as a character was awesome and I was cheering loudly for her from the side lines.
At first I liked Joe very much. He was sweet and caring and gorgeous and quite frankly he was ticking all the boxes. Then the book took a twist (no pun intended) and quite frankly I wanted to kick him in his boxes!!! I found it hard to accept that he went from being so caring and lovely to suddenly being prepared to step away. I wanted him to stand up for Alex more. He did redeem himself but that was why this didn't quite hit 5 stars. Very close though.
A great read and lovely to catch up with the Bar and Group gang.

It is still a Kylie Scoot book, so you get a well written story, endearing second characters, and a little appearance from Mal! 😉
