Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott - 5 Stars

Twist, Kylie Scott
And the Kylie Scott obsession continues...
I knew I was going to like this, there was no doubt in my mind. After all... I love everything Kylie Scott writes. But this... this was even better than expected. This book had all the things necessary for an epic romance novel.

The Blurb:
When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot, bearded, bartender extraordinaire, Joe Collins, only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.

Alex Parks is funny, friendly, and pretty much everything he's been looking for in a woman. And in no time at all they're emailing up a storm, telling each other their deepest darkest secrets... apart from the one that really matters.

And when it comes to love, serving it straight up works better than with a twist.

As per usual with Kylie Scott it had plenty of funny light hearted moments as well as a heart melting worthy romance! There is very little chance (none in my personal opinion) that you will not like both main characters. 

Alex is a determined woman, for better and for worse. She is also courageous. I mean, who just pack and go to meet a guy miles and miles away that you only knew through the internet? Oh... wait... me! I did that. Married to the duche now... 🤣 As you can tell, I have personal reasons for liking her! 

Joe did a very wrong thing, but it is impossible to dislike him for it, he is such a sweet guy. He is honest, hardworking, reliable... he may not be the kind of guy (look wise) that Alex usually goes for, but their romance goes to show how much personality can change the way you see someone. 

Their friendship was spot on too and I loved that they tried that first, that they were friends before they gave into their attraction. 

But... I confess that my favorite part was when she went to Nell's wedding and Mal from the Stage Dive series opened the door. I literally screamed! I am so so soooo not ready to say goodbye to my Stage Dive boys, so finding Jimmy and Mal there with the kiddos put a massive smile on my face. 

Bring on Chaser ---that's the next book for you that hide under a rock!!!! 🤣---

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan .
