twistFrom 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.”
“Lucky me.”



Michel’s Review

The crew at the Dive Bar is back and the drama is at an all time high. With Eric and Nell’s upcoming parenthood, nobody thought that older brother Joe Collins would one up one in the drama department.  He’s too solid, too dependable, easy going, and always lending a helping hand.  Joe is the exact opposite of his baby brother, Eric.  When an unknown woman shows up ready to pick up a relationship with Eric, all hell breaks loose in the Dive Bar.  It seems Joe has been up to something behind the scenes, he has been involved in computer dating under the alias of his brother Eric.  The truth has come out and the drama has been diverted to Joe.

The Dive Bar crew is like family. They are nosy, meddling, and will not stay out of each other’s business.  Joe not only has to right his wrong, he also has to deal with the romantic meddling, the pissed off brother, and the upcoming addition to the family, while trying to keep his own family happy and stable.  Where does that leave him.  Maybe what he did wasn’t so wrong after all.  Maybe it’s time he does something for himself and learns to put his needs before everyone else.  First he has to right the wrong, build a real relationship with Alex, and reach for more.

Alex has always held the world at bay.  She secludes herself away from the world.  She has a thriving business that she operates from home.  She doesn’t do relationships and sees nothing wrong with casual sex.  She has one friend and one friend only.  When she meets Eric Collins on a dating website, she begins to rethink her views on relationships.  For the first time she wants to try for something more.  When Eric disappears from the cyber world, she makes the decision to go Coeur d’Alene and find Eric.  In her heart she knows he is worth her effort.  What she finds is something else altogether.  Eric is not the man she thought he was, in fact he’s not the same man at all.  What she encounters is another man who is so much more than she ever expected. First she will have to get over the fact that Joe Collins is a liar.  Once she gets past that, she’s going to find there’s more to Joe than meets the eye.  She is also going to find there is more to herself than she has ever allowed herself to experience.

The YES man meets the NO woman.  Both are stuck in a life of their own makings.  It’s time to shake things up, make changes in their lives, and learn from one another.  A little hot sex along the way won’t hurt either.  Finding love… totally unexpected but totally worth all the effort.

Once again Kylie Scott has floored me with her fun, quirky characters. It’s great to read a romance but it’s even better when there’s a cast of characters make the book even more delightful.  I am addicted to Kylie Scott’s books and can’t wait for Eric to get his day of reckoning in the next Dive Bar Book.
