5 Stars

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?

Four months ago Lydia came to Coeur d'Alene to finally find her place to belong.

And after a whirlwind romance with her real-estate boss Chris, she's getting married....today.
Or not. Because minutes before she was supposed to walk down the aisle, she receives a video on her phone. Of her darling Chris....having sex with his best man Paul.
No time to mourn the loss of her perfect future in the perfect family. They couldn't stand her anyway....She never would've belonged to them, the way she always dreamed of belonging.
Time to climb out the window and do a Julia Roberts.
Or rather run out the back door, over the huge fence, into the neighbor's garden. And since the house seems to be empty, let's hide inside until everything quiets down.
Only...the house is not empty.... exhibit number one: the naked, extremely gorgeous, tattoed guy standing in front of the bathtub she's resting in!!!!

Vaughan is back in his hometown to get away from everything. His band broke up. And now his dream is dead and he's broke and grieving and trying to get his life back on track. Trying to maybe start a new band...
The hot runaway bride is just what he needs to get his mind off things.

And so the new house-mates become instant friends in misery.
Because that's what they are now - Lydia doesn't have anywhere else to go....
Add a bunch of family and childhood friends-drama to the budding romance....and let the fun times begin!!!

What will happen to Lydia & vaughan?
Will there be a HEA?
Will everybody die at the end?

I'm not telling you that of course ☺


I really had no idea what to expect from this book ...
I loved Kylie's rockstar-series...and I loved this cover and the blurb.
And I looved the book - BUT - the whole story is a bit like a cheesy RomCom movie...NOT A BAD THING AT ALL in my opinion....I just expected a tiny little bit more. Not really more...maybe different - more...dirty! ☺ More ...drama... or maybe just more words. This story could've been a bit bigger, longer. Nothing really happened. That what happened was nice and cute and sexy...but I wanted a tiny bit more. But I'm also excited where the 2nd book will take us...lots of interesting people to choose from. ☺

But I really loved DIRTY - it was sooo adorably cute and funny and sexy and sad...

Another thing I didn't much like - and that's purely personal...I don't like longer-haired-red-blondish guys....the longer hair, the red....personal ew-factor. ☺ BUT, Vaughan is still mega-hot and sexy and the suffering artist type of interesting!
So, let me just pretend, for the length of this book, that one of the 2 following guys is Vaughan....

This book really had everything a good romance needs....
So, if you're looking for an adorably sexy and funny romance - Lydia & Vaughan are SO your guys!!!
And the best part about it??? Our favorite Stage Dive member has a tiny little cameo ☺☺☺

DIRTY was a very cute & sexy & funny insta-romance. About two people who can finally find their place in life - together!!! Of course there's a bit of drama to overcome first

ARC received from publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.

#PreOrder book #2 Twist - coming 22 November

When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot, bearded, bartender extraordinaire, Joe Collins, only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.
Alex Parks is funny, friendly, and pretty much everything he's been looking for in a woman. And in no time at all they're emailing up a storm, telling each other their deepest darkest secrets...apart from the one that really matters.
And when it comes to love, serving it straight up works better than with a twist.
