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.
It is no secret that I have mad love for this author. Kylie Scott wrote the Stage Dive series that still remains my favorite rock band series. When I heard that Kylie Scott was writing a spin-off series to the Stage Dive series, I was quick to read Dirty, which I loved. Twist is another great read that had me flipping pages as quickly as I could as I binged on this second installment of the Dive Bar Series.
Alex Parks has traveled from Seattle to meet her online love interest, a man named Eric. When she learns that it’s not actually Eric that she’s been developing a relationship with, but his brother Joe, Alex is understandably upset and feels duped. She has full intentions of rushing home immediately but comes down with a nasty flu bug that forces her to stay to recover.
Joe Collins is just the man to help nurse her back to health. He feels bad that he deceived Alex, but hadn’t expected to connect with her as quickly and completely online like he did. He is determined to help her see that he’s not the bad guy that Alex believes him to be.
I really enjoyed this romance. Although Alex and Joe are very different, it is so clear that they were meant for one another. Their banter and natural way of relating to one another was so refreshing. The online relationship that they had developed created a depth and comfort level between Alex and Joe that was obvious throughout the book.
Another thing that I enjoyed about this book was the many different emotions that I felt while reading. It was a really funny book that had me laughing out loud several times, but it was also very touching and had some very deep and thought-provoking aspects to it. Kylie Scott is a very talented author, and this book certainly showcases that talent.
I am so glad that we have another book in this series to look forward to. Eric’s story, Chaser is due out April 2018.
