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.

BAD. Really bad. I noticed that most of the reviews for this book are people using this as a chat room. No wonder the high ratings. I wish the reviews would have warned me what a terrible book this was. First and formost, there is absolutely no connection between h/h. They seem like buddies at most. There was no attraction on the hero's side. He repeatedly told the heroine that she's not his type and it showed. And then the way he acted during the conflict was inexcusable. Some things just can't be unsaid. Even the ending was a disappointment. And I can't believe Eric gets his own book next. He tells the heroine: did I do you doggie-style in a closet somewhere? Turn around and let me see the back of your head. THAT douche gets a story? Ewww. Won't be buying it, that's for sure.

If there is one thing you can always count on when reading a Kylie Scott book is that there will always be sarcastic zingers and a level of authenticity that will have you wishing the characters were real people. There is no exception to this book. There are plenty of sarcastic quips to go around and characters you will wish you could hang out with in real life. Alex Parks prefers to keep to herself in the comfort of her own home where life is easier and safer but when she starts up a conversation with who she thinks is Eric Collins on a dating site, she starts to fall for the guy on the other side of the screen. With encouragement from her best friend she decides to surprise her online confidante and meet him in person. She figures if anything they could at least have a one-night fling to satisfy their curiosity. However, when she shows up to surprise Eric she learns he isn’t the man she’s been talking to, flirting with and connecting to on a deeply personal level. It is all been a lie. Joe Collins is used to living in his brother Eric’s shadow and used to cleaning up his messes but this time it is him who has created a mess that he has to clean up and he isn’t used to being on this side of a situation. Joe is used to being the nice guy that puts everyone else’s needs and feelings ahead of his own. It is that empathic need to make everyone else happy, that need to always say yes that has left Joe feeling empty and has him looking for an outlet to let his real feelings out. He finds that outlet on accident on a dating account he had set up for Eric. Joe never had the intention of lying to Alex or pretending to be someone he wasn’t but when he saw her messages he was enamored by her quick wit, friendly banter and creativity. He didn’t plan on getting so deeply wrapped up in their conversations nor taking it beyond the internet but now that Alex has showed up, in real life, he has to face up to his actions and find a way to prove to her that he isn’t the jerk she thinks he is. Joe and Alex are a perfect couple. They bring to the relationship exactly what the other one needs. Alex needs someone to teach her how to step out of her shell and live beyond her comfort zone. Joe needs someone to teach him how to say no and go after his dreams. I enjoyed the banter between Alex and Joe. Alex is awesome and I could see myself hanging out with her. She really didn’t take crap from anyone. Joe is so sweet and always underestimating his value. I was glad he got the happy ending he deserved and Eric is FINALLY growing up and realizing his actions have consequences that affect others. I can’t wait to see what woman eventually walks into his life and truly puts him in his place. It was nice to see how everyone else in the Dive Bar world is doing and nice to see things finally coming to a better place for some of the characters that were facing some stressful and sad situations. It was also great to get a quick glimpse into where the Stage Dive crew is at in their lives! Copy provided for review. Reviewed by Joy for Crystal's Many Reviewers

"Twist" is the fabulous funny, slow-burn, sexy, poignant, second installment in Kylie Scott's Dive Bar series. This novel has depth, humor, and romance along with well developed main and secondary characters and a compelling storyline. The Hero, Joe Collins, is the loyal, steadfast, workaholic Collins brother. He's the opposite to his well-coiffed, womanizing, devil-may-care, Peter Pan-like brother. The Heroine, Alex Parks, is a work in progress. She arrives on the scene tentatively and vulnerable and quickly steps outside of her comfort zone. Alex becomes a force to be reckoned with; she speaks her mind, faces her demons, and defends her friends. We get reintroduced to the gang at the Dive Bar and learn more about some of them. We know Eric Collins' an unapologetic, egotistical skirt chaser. But we discover his selfishness and narcissism is boundless. Alex and Joe's romance is sweet, laden with chemistry, sexual tension and witty banter. "Twist" has some incredibly moving subplots and events woven throughout the storyline. Kylie Scott adds another winner to the Dive Bar series with this installment. Joe Collins is a phenomenal Hero. Despite his "bigfoot-like" size he's my favorite kind Hero, a Beta; he's a caretaker, protective, and nurturing. Alex is a wonderful character. She's a Heroine who exhibits tremendous character growth becoming fierce, brave, and open to trusting others. The secondary characters add humor, conflict, and pathos. The reader receives good and bad resolutions as well as a couple of Happily Ever Afters. There are also FABULOUS cameos from beloved characters from the Stage Dive series. Frankly, "Twist" is my favorite book in Kyle Scott's Dive Bar series, and I can't wait to read the others!

Joe and Alex have an unconventional start when Joe poses as his younger brother and corresponds with Alex for nearly a year. Alex decides to surprise "Eric" on his birthday, and is shock to learn his lumberjack of a brother is the person she has been writing to. She gets really sick and is forced to stay in town longer than she planned and Joe is a sweetheart that takes care of her. By the time she has recovered, Alex has a crush on Joe and is willing to stay in town long enough to scratch an itch (or at least get to know Joe). As events play out, Alex and Joe grow close and unfortunately tragic circumstances threaten to tear apart. Will their relationship be strong enough to survive? Kylie Scott has another well written novel that sucked me in and would let go. My heart both rejoiced and broke as I read Twist. I was very happy that I received a free copy for an honest review. Twist is a wonderful new adult romance that deepens the Dive Bar series and gives a glimpse of Stage Dive.

Twist is one funny unique love story about online dating goes wrong. Alex’s comes to surprise her long time online “partner” only to finds out that she was extending e-mail with completely different looking brother. So in anger and disappointment she goes away in a heavy rain and end up sick. Really sick.

So her stay unexpectedly becomes longer and she and Joe start to really know each other so they end up working together on a project and they challenge each other to change the way of MO. That brings a lot of changes in their life and also they fall for each other. But tragedy changes everything and it is a question can they manage go through rough time. Really great story I didn’t laugh a long time like this. The story plot is unique Alex is also unique person her way of thinking acting great. And also Joe has great personality and is a great man. I loved they come back together. Great read. RECOMMENDED. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

So this story, yes can be read as a standalone but I personally will say you should read all of these lucious men in this series Author Kylie Scott has created. Joe & Alex were awesome! I loved how the book starts off with such a shocker and then flows into a great story of Alex finding herself. Joe and Alex have a hot connection. They try to deny it at first but when they let their desires for each other go, it's scorching hot! And we get the whole gang back in their story as well. Well rounded story that kept me thoroughly entertained!

Alex and Eric have been talking online for a few months. Although they live in different states, they're very close and share almost everything with each other. When Eric's birthday approaches, Alex decides to surprise him and finally visit and meet him in person. But what she doesn't expect is finding out that she's not been talking with Eric, but with Joe, Eric's brother. Feeling humiliated and embarrassed, she leaves. Unexpectedly, she's forced to stay in Coeur d'Alene and be around Joe. They soon start to get to know each other as Alex and Joe. But will she forgive and forget what he did? I loved Twist! The story is funny, sweet, and sexy, with a dash of drama. I laughed, cried, and screamed with the characters. Twist hooked me from the first page and I couldn't stop reading. I loved the banter between Alex and Joe and how their relationship developed, even though it all started with Joe's lie. I also loved Nell and Patrick's story and the past online conversations between Alex and Joe. Alex is a sweet and smart young woman. She's very independent and knows what she wants in a man. That's until she meets Joe. She's been hurt in the past and hates liars, so Joe's lie really messes with her. Joe is a very intense man, but also very sweet. He does everything to help his loved ones, even when he should say no. When he saw Alex picture online and her message, he liked her and decided to write back as his brother. Kylie Scott gives us an amazing story with awesome characters. Her writing style is perfect and she can easily makes us connect with the characters, making us feel what they’re feeling and cheer for them. I can't wait to read Eric's book!

Twist By: Kylie Scott 4.5 Star Review by Kristie K Kylie Scott delivers a fun, sexy, sweet, and saucy romance with a Twist… I had so much fun reading this book by Kylie Scott! Every word held my attention, and the romance between Alex and Joe was a delightfully slow build that snuck up on me, and had me falling right along with them. The tale Ms. Scott has woven is an effortless blend of humor, verity, friendship, forgiveness, sex, passion, pain, and love. I immediately felt a kinship with Alex, and related to her in so many ways. The way she guards her heart with the ferocity of a lioness, her fears and anxieties, her quirky sense of style, and her fun, unconventional sense of humor…she was awesome. Joe was perfectly flawed…perfectly imperfect, and I loved him so much for it! Yeah, he was ripped…but he was soft too. Oblivious to his own appeal, he was humble in his beauty, both inside and out. If his gorgeous self wasn’t enough, the man has the heart and soul of an angel. His soft heart, and the love he holds for his family and friends is breathtaking. *Sigh* He’s amazing… I loved this book from the totally hot cover (that man is seriously gorgeous), to the hook in the blurb. The storyline was fun, real, hot, heartbreaking, and sexy all in one. Well thought out, and executed with skill and finesse, I absolutely adored it. The character development was most excellent, and the writing was amazing. Ms. Scott is an incredibly talented author that has earned herself a new forever fan! I’ve found my tall drink of water with a Twist…now I just need my Chaser… Kristie K

Oh my goodness, this book was so much fun to read. I absolutely loved Alex's voice--her snark, her insecurities, her weird quirky hangups--I think I found my new fictional BFF. (She's given me my new motto: "When in doubt, don't answer the phone or the door. It's always people." Maybe we were separated at birth?) And since in my head Joe looks an awful lot like Thor, I'm not going to mind hanging out with my new bestie and her beau at all :) Seriously, why have I never read anything by Kylie Scott before? Must remedy ASAP. Twist worked absolutely fine as a standalone. Other book characters--both from this series and (briefly, oh-so-briefly but they're there) Scott's Stage Dive series make appearances, but you don't have to have read their books to appreciate this one. Chances are you'll want to read them, though--if you're like me, this urge will hit around page, oh--five, maybe?--because, holy schmoly, this is some fun reading. Heck, I even want to read Eric's (upcoming) book, and he wasn't anywhere close to my favorite secondary character. If anyone can change my mind about him, it's probably Ms. Scott. Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

3.5 stars-- TWIST is the second installment in Kylie Scott’s contemporary, adult DIVE BAR romance series - a spin off from her popular Stage Dive series. This is bartender/builder Joe Collins, and interior designer Alex Parks’ story line. TWIST can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from first person point of view (Alex ) TWIST follows the building relationship between builder/bartender Joe Collins, and interior designer Alex Parks. For weeks Alex has been communicating online with a man she believes to be Eric Collins but a surprise visit to the man in question finds Alex stunned when Eric denies all knowledge of their online affair. Enter Eric’s older brother Joe, and the man with whom Alex will fall in love. What ensues is the rebuilding of a friendship between Alex and Joe, and Alex’s struggle to not fall in love with the man who has lied to her for several months. Alex Parks doesn’t do relationships but her online friendship with ‘Eric Collins’ finds our heroine entering new territory and stepping out of her comfort zone when she makes a surprise visit to Eric’s hometown. But to Alex’s dismay and shock Eric knows nothing about Alex believing she is a groupie from his days as a rock star and musician. Joe Collins struggles with his place in the family and keeping his identity a secret from Alex Parks has stirred up a hornet’s nest of distrust and anger from not only Alex but from his brother as well- a man who directs his anger at our story line heroine. Joe is a bit of a push over as it pertains to his family and his friends making for some awkward moments between Joe and the woman with whom he will fall in love. While Alex remains in town to help Joe with a renovation project, she discovers that falling for the man will only lead to heartbreak-once again. Some drama of another nature forces Joe to reevaluate his relationship with Alex Parks forcing our heroine in another direction. The relationship between Alex and Joe begins as a lie; an online deception that Alex struggles to forgive and forget. Joe is determined to make things right with the woman that calls to his heart but an accident will cause Joe to push Alex out of his life, and in doing so, force Alex to walk away for the very last time. Their lack of confidence and uncertainty about the future overshadows their developing love. The $ex scenes are intimate, seductive and intense, without the use of over the top sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Joes’ brother Eric, and his parents Stan and Audrey Collins; Nell and her ex husband Patrick; Dive Bar employee Rosie; Vaughn and Lydia (Dirty #1) and Alex’s best friend Val, as well as cameo’s appearances by the rock band Stage Dive including our beloved Mal. The requisite conflict is a not so subtle ex who wants a second chance with our story line hero. TWIST is a slow building story about family, friendships, loyalty and second chances. Joe and Alex’s relationship has issues of trust, not only from Joe’s original deception, but also from demons of the past, for both of our story line characters. The premise lacked something in its’ presentation- perhaps the anticipation factor or lack of any real emotion from either leading character. In the end, the conflict was too quickly resolved for all of the struggle between our leading couple.

I really enjoyed this book but this series doesn't even hold a candle to the stage dive books

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book, given by Netgalley. I really enjoy all of the books I'm given for reviewing; I got to know some amazing authors and their impressive work, but I have to admit it's always a thrill when I get a chance to read and review a book from one of my favorite authors. I've fallen in love with Kylie's writing and characters when I first stumbled upon Lick and the Stage Dive series and now I get to do the same with these amazing bunch in the Dive Bar Series. This time we get to read about Joe and Alex, they weren't each other's type or that is what they thought, but life had some surprises in store for them. Their first encounter couldn't have gone worse and it seems there's no way they could ever see eye to eye again, Alex can't stand liars and in her eyes, this stranger is just that. Joe has a great challenge in front of him, he needs to convince this intriguing woman, that he is not a liar and that everything was just a small mistake, so she can trust him again. Their story is entertaining and has some uncomfortable moments for sure; how weird could it be to get to know someone and at the same time realize that you know them more than you though you did. What will she do when she realizes that almost everything was true and she has known Joe for a long time? Sparks fly and they need to get over their pride and fears before its too late. True love doesn't take into account your supposed tastes or whether you live close or far away; it just hits you and the only thing you can do is try to survive the fall. Joe is my type of alpha, he is strong and sweet just in the right amounts, get ready to fall in love!

I Recommend This Book Yes Review Last updated on 28 Mar 2017 This is such a fantastic premise - and very fitting for today's world. I do appreciate that Scott didn't take it someplace too dangerous. Instead there is a bit of a misunderstanding about who exactly Alex has been emailing, with the expected hard feelings, but Joe is a good man and things quickly turn around. None of these people are perfect and both Alex & Joe have their hesitations for putting themselves out there. While their face-to-face introduction leaves A LOT to be desired, there are all of those emails that built a good foundation for their friendship. They just have to believe in themselves and each other ... but of course trusting is never easy. Twist is full of humor, heart and heat. It's fun to be with these two as they move from a virtual friendship to a real one, with lots of sparks and playfulness along the way. While they let life get in the way and freak them out for a bit, eventually they figure things out - and it fits them so well :) (This is the first of Scott's books that I've read but it definitely can stand alone. She does such a great job of keeping you in the know wither everything relevant that you can easily jump right in.) *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s. ***

Joe and Alex are the couple you want to be friends with. I want to go to the Dive Bar and have drinks with the gang from this series. But their story isn’t all happy go lucky. I love how this books plot was written. It’s new, fresh and exciting. One thing I love about Kylie Scott is the build-up. She sure knows how to write the tension and explosions. Can I just tell you how much I love Joe? I think he’s my favorite of Kylie’s fictional men. He’s the perfect Lumberjack. This book is filled with lots of laugh out loud moments and sweetness that will have you melting. Alex is a spitfire and I absolutely love her. As far as heroines go, she is one of my favorites. She’s relatable, realistic, funny and full of sass. The ending of this book was surprising. I wasn’t ready for the turn it took. I am however grateful for the recovery and that’s all I’m going to say about that. Read it, love it and wish for your own Lumberjack.

I read Twist with a smile on my face, laughing out loud often. This shouldn't be surprising when there's lines like this: "Butterflies didn't cover it. There were pterodactyls inside my stomach, swooping and screeching and flying around." p.112 Kylie Scott breathed new life into a plot centered around meeting online and mistaken identity and it had everything to do with Alex and Joe's respective personalities. Joe is a classic good guy and he was very swoon-worthy. A guy other than Joe likely would not have tried so hard to make things up to Alex after she discovered he was the Eric she'd been emailing all along. While they slowly settle into friendship, it is clear they have a lot to learn from each other. Whereas Joe says yes to everyone in his life, setting up more than a couple codependent relationships, Alex says no to everyone, functioning more like a hermit. We're at our healthiest when we're somewhere between those two extremes. Joe proposes Alex gets out of her comfort zone by saying yes to things and he'll learn to set boundaries by saying no. This was great to see in action. While the books build on each other, they can be read in any order. The author excels at depicting the community between her characters and the friendships between the groups of friends are some of the finest in contemporary romance. No matter what's happening in a character's love life, their friends remain important and their significant other naturally becomes incorporated into that circle. Alex doesn't really have friends beyond her best friend Val (loved her character!) so it was neat to see her get to know Joe's friends and realize people aren't as bad as she thinks. The romance between Alex and Joe was fantastic. Their chemistry was perfect and their interactions often made me giggle with glee. Things were sailing along quite smoothly until tragedy happens (I did not see this coming and it broke my heart!) and Joe made a choice that I didn't think quite fit his character. I did, however, love seeing how Alex responded to it. It's hard to create new patterns and habits for ourselves and the author doesn't shy away from this struggle. It's another part of why I love her books- they reflect real life. There aren't quick fixes, even when there's an instant connection. Relationships take work and vulnerability and risk and it's all reflected in this wonderful novel. Disclosure: I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

4.5 stars- fun, flirty, and some switch ups to the norm Twist is a great follow-up to Dirty, but can certainly be read as a standalone. Once again, Miss Scott delivers likable, real characters with Joe and Alex. The writing flows and the pacing is steady throughout, but it’s written in a light-hearted, causal manner that makes for a fast read. Of course, there’s a large dose of humor and fantastic dialogue that brings the story to life and left me smiling throughout the book. I found the characters and their relationship a bit atypical for contemporary m/f romances and those details really made Twist really stand out. The couple connects somewhat accidentally via a dating site, but their physical distance makes them more online pen pals at the start. Having an established relationship prior to meeting allowed their romance to move along quickly without it feeling unbelievable or relying on instalove. Joe and Alex had good chemistry from the outset, and there were definitely some steamy scenes throughout Twist. However, there wasn’t an immediate physical lust fueling this pairing and that made it different to see play out. I found it actually validated their relationship early on. In another departure from the stereotypical romance hero and heroine, both Joe and Alex have quieter dispositions. They are happy to keep to themselves or fade into the background around those more boisterous personalities. Although having one subdued character isn’t uncommon, in my experience it’s less likely to see two. This created an interesting and new dynamic for me as an avid romance reader. I enjoyed how they lit each other up. That spark came through very clearly to the reader and showcased their feelings well. I also liked that Alex owned her sexual experiences. She wasn’t promiscuous by any stretch, but she also wasn’t waiting for true love to sweep her away. It’s always nice when a heroine isn’t the stereotypical inexperienced partner in a relationship. When added to her and Joe’s other character attributes, as well as aspects of their relationship, Twist really stood out among the sea of contemporary romances. I think fans of Dive Bar or Stage Dive will be happy with this newest installment. Not only does it deliver the type of romance I’ve come to expect from this author, but it stepped away from the norms a bit. With Nell and Pat’s subplot getting a good chunk of time and resolution, some cameos from Stage Dive favorites, and a check-in with Vaughan and Lydia from Dirty, Twist had all the ingredients to make this an enjoyable and easy read. The book ends with just enough insight into another side of Eric, leaving me eager to see what the final novel in the series will bring to the table. *Reviewed via Netgalley for Alpha Book Club*

Kylie Scott, where have you been all my life? Going out of her comfort zone and visiting her online-crush on his birthday wasn't probably a smart move but Eric hasn't responded to any of Alex' mails in a week. Turns out, the guy Alex thought she had been talking to for half a year doesn't know her. It was his brother, the ruggedly handsome, bearded, long-haired and so-not-her-type Joe. She is furious and determined to fly back home on the next day. A vicious case of the flu, however, thwarts her plans. And that liar Joe? He is annoyingly tenacious and wants to take care of her. Joe is a sweetheart from bottom to top. He is hard working, serious, reliable and the rock everyone leans on when things go downhill. He takes care of people, is a gentleman, despite his rugged looks, and feels deeply. Joe's quiet demeanor is in contrast to Alex' quirkiness, yet he has that sense of humor that blindsides you. He is the whole package and I adored him from the start. Alex is one of those heroines I always admire because I want to be like them. She knows her flaws and is totally unapologetic about them. She is a commitment-phobe, she has never been in a serious relationship. She'd rather have hook-ups, intimacy scares the living daylights out of her. But, Alex is also smart, loyal and has a no-nonsense attitude. Her snarky comebacks were the highlight of this story. I absolutely LOVED their friendship. They have each other's back, stand up for one another and have this easygoing connection that doesn't need words to fill the silence. They enable each other to be who they really are without feeling bad about it. Their banter is so funny and I love that Joe calls Alex Little Miss Effing Sunshine but when he is with his parents all of a sudden she is Little Miss Sunshine. When they start being sexually attracted to each other it's the logical consequence of their friendship. They are a combustible mixture and once they give in they will leave you short of breath. The part I adored most about this book was that both main characters looked past each other's looks and actually fell for the person behind them. It felt natural when they transitioned from friends to lovers because their personalities were like lock and key. The secondary cast was also a highlight - they made me curious about their stories and I'm lusting for their books. Eric is next and I am so curious how this author will turn this a little bit shallow, self-absorbed man-ho into someone I can love. I am new to this author's writing but I think the first page already made her an auto-buy. Her snarky and hilarious writing style put a perma-grin on my face. I am already addicted and want MORE! If you love a humorous story with depth go get this book. I hope you'll love it as much as I did.

I voluntarily received a copy of TWIST via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.   This story reminded me so much of my husband and myself that I couldn’t help but fall in love.  Like Joe and Alex we also met online, sans mistaken identity, but yeah, I can relate to Alex on so so many levels.  A story is just so much more when it is one you can slip into the character's skin and relate on so many levels, emotionally, physically, mentally, everything. TWIST, ran the gambit of emotions for me, from anger and frustration to happiness and tears.  Tears of sadness and tears of joy, when a book can move me to tears it is truly a book of note.  I loved the journey of courage and rediscovery that Alex went through in following the possibilities for something more.  It was messy and heartbreaking at times, yet so full of heart and vulnerability.   I absolutely freaking loved every page!  I am giving Twist 5 HUGE Boundless Stars!
