Because first love deserves a second chance
One shot at a second chance.
I fell madly in love at first sight with Jane Lewis.
The girl with bright blue 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 was provided an ARC of Dirty Talk by TSOR Promotions, I read S. L. Scott's Hard to Resist series and loved it so when I saw her new release I had to sign up to review.
When Dirty Talk opens we see a flashback with Jane returning to Luke's to get him back following their break-up only it looks like he has moved on when she finds another woman at his house.
We then jump forward and Jane is really unhappy dating Lawrence (a smarmy idiot who has told everyone they are engaged when they aren't) waiting on news for her new script. She finally receives the news her script has been finanaced and, is over the moon, until she realises that the film has been backed and is being produced by the very man she fell in love with in high school and broke her heart, Luke Anders.
Jane knows this is the chance she has been waiting for so makes a promise to herself not to fall for him again while they shot in Texas so she packs the content of her hotel room and her life into her car following her split from Lawerence and heads to the shoot from LA. As soon as I read the first interaction between these Luke and Jane I knew they were in for a fight trying to stay away from each other and the fact they had adjoining rooms makes it even harder. Although it is never really confirmed I am pretty sure that was down to Luke.
I loved reading this book and I loved Luke and Jane together, they just fit so seamless and were made for each other even though so many roadblocks were put between them on the way. There were two really irritating characters in this book, Ian, the film's director and Jessica, the film's star. They both did everything they could do get in the way, although Jessica definitely takes the biscuit, her roadblocks were intentional while Ian was really just blind. Jessica does all she can to get in the way and I hated her for it, she used one night with Luke months ago against him and did everything she could do to get between him and Jane.
When I read every interaction between Luke and Jessica I wanted to kill her but she really needed to be there, in her own screwed up way, she helped get these two together and then there was Danny. Oh, I think I'm in love with him. I haven't read his book, Sweet Talk but after reading his role in this book I definitely need to! He really is there for the two of them and helps any way he can to get them back to one another when everything starts to go south.
I think my favourite part of the book was the end when Luke manages to escape Jessica's clutches (in the most hysterical way, I was chuckling along during that scene). Jane is so against him being there and it is so nice to see her soften to Luke as they start to drive back to LA. She starts to let him back in and understand why he did what he did, it was to save the movie for her and once she realises that and what he had put up to get this movie done. That last 20% of the book was amazing and it was great to watch the two of them find each other again after everything they've been through and come out the other side together.
