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?
A story about a runaway bride who finds herself in a bathtub in the house of a man, and that’s just the first ten pages. I thought I was going to go into withdrawals when the Stage Dive series ended until I found out Kylie Scott wrote a companion series and members of Stage Dive even make an appearance.
Lydia has just found out her fiancé, whom she would be marrying any minute now, has been cheating on her… with the best man. What’s a girl to do but make a runner? Lydia just so happens to run into the house and bathtub of Vaughan. I empathised with many aspects of Lydia’s life and the pickle she has found herself in. At a crossroads Lydia picks herself back up and begins building her life again which is admirable. Her sass and charm make her an instantly likable character.
Vaughan is a character with a lot of background to him and Lydia gets swept up into this world. He is a character who remains calm and collected through most of the novel and how he manages things and his obvious caring nature made me virtually unable to dislike him.
The world of Dive Bar is opened up and examined in this novel. It is beginning a new spin off for Kylie Scott. The readers are introduced to many interesting characters who are as amazing and complicated as the main protagonists of the novel. I can tell I am going to love this new series as much as I loved Stage Dive.
Keep Calm and Read On,
