Publication Date: April 11, 2017

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.

Oh Kylie Scott! This woman writes some of my favorite female leading ladies. They are real, flawed, hilarious, and so very relatable to the average 21 century woman. Twist is another bestseller that you will not want to miss. Joe and Alex are brilliant. Their unique chemistry creates a sort of awkward moving train that causes you to wonder where it it will lead us. This book is quirky and messy, something that is real in the world we know. Both Joe and Alex are closed off in different, understandable ways, and I appreciated how they challenged one another and moved towards new ideas and choices both together and apart. 

Something that makes this story work so well is the people in it. Joe and Alex are great, but they would not be as brilliant without the people they love and those they know. Alex is reserved and closed off from the world, yet her relationship with Val opens us up to a new side of who she is and what she is like. Joe is a man who learns to take a stand while loving those around him. It is admirable to watch him learn to balance the need to please with the need to take care of himself. Those around Joe come together in a brilliant way when life is hard and it shows the reader how much people mean to these two. When Joe and Alex have trouble opening up with each other, which leads to readers having questions, the relationships around them help give us a glimpse into who they are. 

This book is both heart warming and a bit raw. Like every romance, there are hard issues to face, but these people make it. They fall down and learn to dust themselves off. Their passion is sizzling and their subtle love story is wonderful to watch unfold! BONUS: Fans of the Stage Dive series will get to see their favorites for a little glimpse and that scene was icing on the cake!
