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.
Alex Parks has never taken a risk. She works from home as a graphic designer. When she decides to sign up for a online dating account, she doesn't expect to meet Eric, she just thinks its good fun. She loves their emails, and thinks he really gets her. She decides to surprise him at the birthday party he told her about, but when she gets there, Eric has no idea who she is. Turns out, he signed up looking for a Seattle hook up, but lost interest. All this time it was his brother Joe she was emailing with. Alex is hurt and pissed off. She walks to the hotel in the pouring rain, with Joe tailing her trying to explain.
Next day, Joe shows up again to apologize, but finds Alex down and out with the flu. He spends a few days taking care of her, and eventually he convinces her to remain friends. She sticks around town for awhile, to get to know Joe and in the process his friends at the Dive bar.
One dark night, Alex, Joe, and his friend are in a car accident and Joe blames himself. He pushes Alex away, not wanting her to get hurt ever again, but Alex can't seem to let go. Joe and Alex butt heads as Alex helps him remodel the upstairs apartments of the Dive bar.
These two awesome people will need to get past their issues before they can be together. And we are talking about Kylie Scott, who brings us amazing love stories. Anyways, the book was awesome, as always, and now the year long wait for the next one!
