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.
Twist is the second book in the Dive Bar series and I must say that I liked it a lot more than I did Dirty. I was both excited and hesitant before starting Twist. Twist was funny, it had angst, it was sexy, and emotional. It drew me in and didn’t want to let me go.
But, unfortunately there is the dreaded but, for the first 80% of Twist I hated Alex with a passion. Luckily though there was so much other good with Joe and the rest of the gang that it didn’t take away from my enjoyment and I did begin to warm up to her and eventually liked her. Alex well Alex is a bit neurotic at times I guess you could say. Her reasons for certain events in her past were ridiculous and childish but they all added to the way she is now. Her friendship with Val was a beautiful thing and I am glad that Ms. Scott brought that into the story because it showed not only the depth that she could care for someone but also brought light to what people still don’t always understand.
Joe, oh sweet stupid Joe. I forgive you for the whole pretending to be your brother thing but man you and Alex are like oil and water at times. The back and forth insults, the banter, all of it was strangely a form of foreplay. Joe was sweet and sexy and caring but still a bit of a stubborn man but he just really was a good guy deep down and had a heart of gold. Although I did want to slap him upside the head a time or two but even then I couldn’t stay mad at Joe. Joe was exactly what Alex needed.
Now when something happens, it is so tragic and heartbreaking that I had to set my kindle down to cry. No I will not say what happened because I won’t spoil it but that added angst and the emotions it draws out from deep inside your heart and soul was painful but gave the plot that added depth. There are also a couple of favorite characters that make an appearance and I loved the scenes with them in it.
Twist renewed my love for Kylie Scott and made me want to continue on with this series. This is a book that I can easily recommend!
