APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Kylie Scott's snarky and socially awkward heroine, Alex Parks, stole our hearts. Taking a huge risk, Alex flies to Idaho to meet a man she met online—but let’s just say things don’t turn out as expected. Readers looking for a caregiver hero will adore the kindness and patience of gruff and tattooed bartender Joe Collins. While this is the second book in Scott’s Dive Bar series, newcomers will have no problem reading this novel as a standalone.
I really enjoyed Joe and Alex’s story. They met on an online dating site and emailed for months but there were some things Joe didn’t disclose. When they finally meet in person it was a shock for Alex to say the least. Joe is a carpenter/bartender who lives in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and Alex is a graphic designer who lives in Seattle, Washingon. Will they be able to overcome deception and distance to make it to their HEA? There is a lot going on at the Dive Bar, drama aplenty throughout the story.
Wow! I loved how sweet the Hero in this story was, he could still have his bad boy moments but he was sweet and giving and made me swoon! The heroine was also pretty amazing! She was stubborn and could come off as not nice but she was loyal to the bone and made everything better. Loved how other questions from the first book were answered as well. Great series!
This one started slow for me and I almost gave up on it. Man am I glad I stuck with it! The core of the story is online dating and the little lies that are weaved into conversations on those sites. What happens when you come face to face with the person on the other end and they realize you aren't exactly what you said you were. That's how Joe and Alex's story begins and it just gets better! The writing style of this author is great and her characters are very well developed. If you find it slow starting, just give it time. The story is well worth the wait. This is one I highly recommend.
