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?
Lydia was the stuff. I thought she was the best heroine I've read in ages! She was hilarious, and relateable, strong when she needed to be, self aware, and like - I legitimately feel we should be friends. I loved everything about her, and I'm normally hella tough on the heroine.
Curiosity over him owned me. I wanted to wander around inside his mind, fondle his hot body. Things along those lines.
The realism. Tee Bee Aich, I've read a lot of shit books recently. A lot of OTT violence, a lot of ridiculous characters, and this story was exactly what I needed. Totally a breath of fresh air. The relationship, while it built quickly, actually made sense. Ms Scott let us see what these characters would love about each other. I loved them for each other. It didn't feel like insta-love, and even the insta-lust on Vaughan's part was pretty realistic.
"...I'm not saying I knew you were it for me the minute I saw you in the bath. To be honest, I was kind of pissed off about the whole thing."
The glorious, glorious smut. Spot on.
All the peripheral characters and external relationships! I am definitely going to read more from this series!
Only one thing, and if I'm honest, it wasn't even that unlikeable. The resolution seemed rushed, and forced. But I still liked it, and I'd still rate this story super close to a 5 star.
