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.


Kylie Scott

Expected Release Date: 11 April 2017

Book Series: 

The second book in Kylie Scott’s Dive Bar series, where the tattooed bartenders keep the drinks—and romance—flowing with a perfect cocktail of heartbreak, humor, and sweet, sexy romance is releasing next week, and I have a never-seen-before excerpt for you.

Insistent knocking on the door. Again.

“For fuck’s sake.”

My sentiments exactly. Only, strangely enough, I hadn’t spoken. Instead, a familiar, if somewhat unexpected, masculine voice had provided the profanity. I rubbed the sleep from my eyes and checked out the other side of the mattress. Large-male alert. Oh God, what if I’d had some strange reaction to the cold and flu tablets and sexually assaulted the poor innocent man last night? It had been a while since I’d seen any action.

“Hey,” said Joe, stretched out on top of the bed. He’d shucked his boots, but otherwise, all clothing remained intact.

Thank God.

“Hi” is what I attempted to say. What came out was a cross between a whisper and a wheeze. God, my throat was on fire. Raw agony. I could have cried in pain and frustration, only it would have made my headache worse. Besides appearing pitiful, of course.

The knocking continued.

“How are you feeling,?” he asked around a yawn.

“Crappy,” I whisper-wheezed, beyond caring. Fucking plague.

“Shit,” he mumbled. “You lost your voice?”

I nodded.

“Damn. Least you’re not burning up anymore.” Slowly, he sat up, stretching his neck and rolling his shoulders. Then he pushed up off the bed and went to answer the door.

The actual Eric Collins barging in made for the second surprise of the morning. Unlike his brother, he wore black slacks and a pale blue button-down, topped off with a black leather jacket. His long dark hair was tied back in a man-bun, his face freshly shaven. Besides him, Joe appeared distinctly rumpled. Resemblance-wise, you could see the shared gene pool in their high foreheads and generous lips. The slight thickness of their noses. Otherwise you’d hardly credit them with being brothers. As different as day and night.

“Morning,” said Eric, dumping his load of brown paper bags on top of the chest of drawers. “Told Nell you didn’t make it home last night and she made me bring over more food and stuff. Coffee’s in that one.”

“Thanks.” Joe dove into the designated bag, pulling out two extra-large coffee cups.

“Dad phoned, wanted to know when you’d be on the job,” he said. “Better check your cell and give him a call.”

“Will do.”

Eric turned, giving me a flirty little grin. It didn’t last long, however. “Damn. You’re really sick, aren’t you?”
Joe’s brows drew in. “I said she was.”

“Yeah, just figured it was an excuse she’d made up to stay in town and make you run around jumping through hoops, doing stuff for her. Grovel. You know, make you pay penance?” He shrugged. “Bet Boyd fifty bucks too.”

Without a word, Joe set down one of the cups and smacked his brother upside the head.

You KNOW she is by far my favorite NA author!!! So excited to be in the running for this one. Thanks!!!

The Stage Dive series is one of my all-time favorites – it literally helped jump start my dormant love of contemporary romance, I can’t wait to see Kylie’s world continue to build with the Dive Bar series. <3

I loved those 2 books – but I still preferred the Rockstar Romances – these were a bit too sweet. But I like sweet! But still the best part about both books was Mal :)

this book sounds so good!! and it seems to be funny, I love that!

I really like Kylie Scott’s writing, her strong and funny heroins, and her sexy heroes. I’m pinning for more in her Flesh series… and enjoyed the whole Stage Dive series and Dirty where I got so curious to know more about the mysterious Joe. I’m ecstatic this is his book already :D
