The last thing Vaughan 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 comes with her.

Lydia Green doesn't know whether to burn down the church or sit and 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. She narrowly escapes tying the knot and meets Vaughan only hours later.

Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessman she thought she'd marry. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and unsettled. But she 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?

Kylie Scott’s Dirty is the first in a new series and my first read by the author. After having finished, it definitely won’t be my last. Funny and engaging, the book had me glued from the first page.

“He’s my friend and this is his first night on a new job,” I said, trying my best to be nonchalant, noncrazy. “I want him to do well, that’s all.”
The redheaded woman raised a single brow yet again.
“Fine.” I took a deep breath. “Nell, I hate to be the one to have to tell you this. But your brother is hot. Like smokin’ hot. Honestly, it’s kind of impossible to have a vagina and not look.”

Lydia Green is having a really bad day. Insstead of getting married, she’s hiding out in a shower of a neighbors house, wedding dress and all, the video of her now ex-fiance and his best man doing the deed burned into her retinas.

Vaughan Hewson is having a bad few months. His band has broken up, he’s broke and unsure of what to do with himself. One things for sure, he needs to sell his family home and get away from the memories that linger there. But first, a shower…you guys can add up how they first meet now, right? Can we say awkward?

“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.” My face might have been aflame, but then so was the rest of my body. “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?”
“I know.”

These two form a strange bond that really works. There is a lot of attraction between the two but the friendship, not to mention how they meet (odd as it is) connects them. Coupled with all the drama that happens to both of them, I really didn’t want to put the book down. Even the secondary characters like Vaughan’s sister had major drama and I was dying to know how things would play out. I would love to read a novella or at least have that expanded in the next book because they laid out some super juicy gossip there. By the time I finished, I felt like I watched a really epic drama and I didn’t want to leave because the minute my back was turned, shit was gonna go down. Not to say that it ends with a cliffhanger or no HEA, it does. Just saying that I didn’t want it to end. I am already dying to read the next book in the series and I am already picking up Kylie’s previous series, because this lady can write. It’s been a few days since I’ve read the book and yet it’s still in the back of my mind making me laugh or smile over something in the book. Kylie Scott has made a new fan.
