I am extremely pleased to help celebrate the release of the newest book in Kylie Scott’s Dive Bar series: TWIST!!!
From New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott comes the second sizzling stand-alone novel in the Dive Bar series!
When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot bearded bartender Joe Collins only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.
Alex Parks is funny, fascinating, and pretty much everything he’s been looking for in a woman—except that she lives across the country. Soon they’re emailing up a storm and telling each other their deepest, darkest secrets…except the one that really matters.
When Alex pays Joe a surprise visit, however, they both discover that when it comes to love, it’s always better with a twist.

“I wanted to talk to you a bit more about what happened between us online,” he said, his mouth a serious straight line. “How I came to use my brother’s profile.”
Ugh. “I’m pretty sure I found out everything I needed to know last night.”
“I didn’t mean to lie to you, Alex.”
“Once is a mistake.” I crossed my legs, kicking my black leather bootie back and forth. So I was a little aggravated. Sue me. “Months’ worth of e-mails is not. You could have introduced yourself to me, Joe, told me who you really were. You chose not to. Christ, no wonder you kept putting off meeting. I should have known something was wrong.”
“You’re right. I shouldn’t try to sell you excuses.” A big sigh from my “friend.” “Truth is, I’m not used to being the bad guy. Usually I’m the one cleaning up my brother’s messes.”

FTC DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED AN E-ARC FROM THE PUBLISHER THROUGH NET GALLEY. I VOLUNTARILY OFFER MY HONEST REVIEW OF THE BOOK, THOUGH IT IS NOT EXPECTED OF ME! RECEIPT OF THIS BOOK IN THIS MANNER DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK OR THE CONTENT OF MY REVIEW!
After the success of the first book with me, I was eager to get my hands on this one to read! It didn’t disappoint! I found it to be a funny and engaging read!
There was a bit of deception that started off the book, which I really didn’t care for, but I loved how Joe wound up rallying Alex back into love with him after that deception. I loved seeing how things progressed between them as well as how they each grew individually while exploring their relationship. Tragedy strikes in this book as well, and I was happy to see the outcome of it, especially since it also served as a bit of a wake up call for Eric.
Alex was a bit too neurotic for my tastes overall, but it worked in the story. I didn’t like how Joe felt that he didn’t measure up to his brother, as if Eric was this paragon to actually look up to! Val was an amazing character, and I really wanted to see more of her in action!
All things considered, this was a great installment in the Dive Bar series, with cameos from the author’s previous series, Stage Dive. Would definitely purchase for myself and recommend to others!
4 stars out of 5
