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 short review to update challenges
Originally, I saw a cover of one of the books in the Dive Bar series and loved it. Then I saw some decent reviews and finally the narrator was Andi Arndt. I could resist no longer.
Being me, I started at the beginning with Dirty. Loads of fun and sexy, it is not wildly realistic with its runaway bride and hot musician but highly enjoyable. The emotional feels and character developments were authentic and I’ll definitely be moving along with the series for more joy.
Andi Arndt is one of my favorite narrators ever and this is part of why I chose to listen to the series rather than read them. Her performance is a joy. It is so fluent I can just absorb the story without worrying about the voices because they feel authentic. I listened comfortably at 1.5x speed.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.
