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.
So I haven't read the first book in this series however this works okay as a stand alone. I did struggle to get into this book at first. It was nothing about the book (I don't think) because I struggled to get into everything I read last month.
However, once I got past my rut I restarted this book and got all the way through in a few short hours. This was an interesting book to get into and I'm glad I took a chance on it. It was my first book by Kylie Scott and I was not let down.
Alex is a home body of sorts, she isn't a fan of being around people much and she never does anything unexpected. Joe is the older brother of a major musician and has issues saying no. The two originally meet while Joe is using his brothers online dating site, which he was supposed to close, and they start chatting with each other. When Alex shows up in his bar everything falls apart, or does it?
I was intrigued by the characters and the plot. The world that was created was fun and exciting. There was drama and romance and even a little steam. Can I just say that Joe, while I don't like a guy with a beard, was just absolutely sweet and swoonworthy? I wasn't a complete fan of Alex at first but once I got into the book and I understood her a little better and she wasn't an awful character either.
Needless to say, I enjoyed the book and I truly look forward to reading more of Kylie's books. She has a different writing style that I found enticing.
