One shot at a second chance.
I fell madly in love at first sight with Jane Lewis.
The girl with bright green eyes, a pretty smile, and great ass owned my heart. I thought she was happy with the status quo, but ten years later, I foolishly let her go. Despite dating other women, no one compares to my first love. We are meant to be together, and I’m going to try my damnedest to convince her of that.
Luke Anders tricked me. The deal was sealed before I knew he was behind it.
We agreed to be just friends. Simple. Easy. But it’s not just the weather that’s hot in Texas. I was a fool to think I could resist him. He knows how to work his charms and those kissable lips, that great jaw, and biceps. We are here to work, but he has become downright distracting.
I’m strong. I can handle one month of his flirtatious sexual torture. But if I happen to fall in bed with that sexy bastard for a night, or three, does that make me weak? Asking for a friend, of course.
I guess I’m about to find out when love gets messy, it’s not just the talk that’s dirty.
“I’m about to be tested–heart and soul, mind and body. This will determine my future and I have no idea if that future holds the same ending the film does. Somehow I doubt it. Not everyone gets a second chance.”
“I gave my soul to you when we were sixteen. Will you give me yours now?” “You already have it.” “Only you, Jane. Only for you.” “I’m going to open your body, embrace your soul, and coax the moon and stars to shine inside.”
“Time doesn’t heal old wounds. It distorts them. Twists your memories so you forget the truth and see the extremes. Love or hate. those are the only emotions left to comfort me after all this time. One of the other. changing, depending on the day. The hour. The minute.”
We asked for it… We begged for it.. We met this sexy, dirty talker in Sweet Talk, and Luke is here to finally tell his story……
Finally, finally, finally we get Jane and Luke’s story. I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely fell in love with this broken-hearted man in Sweet Talk and was dying to hear his story. I had to know how and why we got to this point. And let me tell you, S.L. Scott does not disappoint. She took my expectations for Dirty Talk and obliterated them, I mean blew them to smithereens.
Dirty Talk played with my emotions and took me on one incredible ride. Dirty Talk is told from dual points of view, and let me tell you, you are sucked into this story from the very first page. I mean you are completely consumed by Jane and Luke’s story, and you won’t be able to put it down. I believe I was about 3% or so into the story and already had that “this is going to be a good one” feeling. Now, I have to tell you, Jane and Luke’s story is anything but easy and will totally pull at your heart. There are so many misunderstandings and lost opportunities, you won’t be able to stop yourself from screaming at your kindle, like I did.
Jane…Ugh…My heart went out to her. She made so many mistakes, but she owned up to each one of them. She was hurt and she let that hurt shape her and build walls. She is stronger than most would give credit for and she is the kind of woman that we can all see ourselves in. She’s not perfect and but she loves with everything that she has. Luke….Luke, we met you and fell in love with your bromance with Danny in Sweet Talk. I couldn’t wait to discover more about Luke and how his heart got broken. Luke is sexy, smart and one hell of a dirty talker. Let me tell you, some of those scenes…..SCORCHING…that’s all I’m gonna say. But, there’s more to Luke than his sexy dirty talking. Beneath all of that is a man fighting for his second chance. He’s not in anyway perfect and has also made some pretty huge mistakes when it comes to Jane. But, he’s trying. He knows what he wants and is not afraid to fight for it. Together, these two form the ultimate combination. The push and pull between them is intense and the tension is off the charts. A love like theirs is the type that can never be smoldered or buried. It is the kind that you just can’t live without and will fight forever for…..
Dirty Talk was a fabulous read. It gave me everything I could possibly want in a second chance romance. This story is well written and all consuming. The characters are imperfect, real and complicated. They are people that you can easily relate to and see apart of yourself in. S.L. Scott has once again provided us with an amazing story-line and characters that you can not help but fall in love and connect with.
Dirty Talk is entertaining. It is sexy. It is complicated and frustrating. It is romantic and swoon-worthy. I fell in love and can not stop swooning over the dirty talking Luke. This book was everything and more and I still have a smile on my face. Fans of S.L. Scott and second chance romances, you are not going to want to miss out on Luke and Jane’s story. I hope you will love Luke and Jane as much as I did.
