Book Blurb:

Lilly has been in love with her brother’s best friend Blake for years. She lost her virginity to the oil driller on her eighteenth birthday, only to wake the next morning to find him gone. After he pulled that stunt twice more, she swore never to see or talk to him again. But now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and he’s as irresistible as she remembers.

Blake thinks Lilly’s even sexier than ever. Unable to resist one another, they don’t make it out of the airport parking lot before taking up where they left off. As the two rediscover their passion for each other, nothing and nowhere is off-limits!

Book Excerpt:

Lilly collapsed against him. God, it was just like old times. And she’d made it so easy for him. Damn it! She wasn’t going to let him break her heart again! But she wasn’t going to dwell over what she couldn’t change either, and besides, she’d thoroughly enjoyed their quickie.
As they straightened their clothes and prepared to leave, he asked, “So, what’s the plan?”
“I take you home with me. You can use Ross’ room until he comes home tomorrow. I hope you like pizza and wine because that’s what I intend to have for dinner.” Hopefully there was an extra bottle of wine stashed in the fridge.
“All I want for now is a shower, a bed, and some more of you.”
Now was a good time to lay down the law. She had let her desire get the best of her once but that had been temporary insanity. She took a deep breath. “Speaking of bed, you’ll be in it alone, Blake. There’ll be no more kissing or touching or anything else between us while you’re here.”
He chuckled. “You weren’t complaining a minute ago.”
She was still flushed from their mutual satisfaction. “I mean it, Blake. You can’t continue to come back into my life every few months or a year, turn it upside down and then just leave again. I didn’t want to pick you up, I didn’t want to see you again, and I have a boyfriend.” She was amazed at how easily the lies slipped from her lips. Almost as easily as her mouth had devoured his cock a moment ago.
“Relax, baby, I won’t do anything you don’t want me to do.”
Lilly had her doubts. She’d never been able to resist him. Blake had the moves and he’d never been afraid to put them on her before. Even a glance could turn her knees to jelly. And she was weak where he was concerned. He knew that, she was sure.
She focused on the road the rest of the way home, and tried not to imagine a naked, sexy Blake in her shower.

Dialogue Highlight:

Bringing him home with her wasn’t a good idea. But it was too late to drive away
now that Blake had recognized her and was making his way to the car. Before Lilly
knew it he was at the passenger side.

She rolled down the window when he bent to look in. “Hi.” Her voice came out
sounding thin and weak. She again clenched her legs together, trying to stop the tingle

He raised a brow. “This is a nice surprise. I was expecting Ross.”

She couldn’t see his eyes, but Lilly had the feeling that he was looking her over.

“Well, you’re stuck with me,” she said with false sweetness. She was acutely aware of
the extra pounds she’d put on since seeing him last. But that didn’t stop her nipples
from hardening right there before his eyes. He’d always had that effect on her. And it
didn’t help that she was vividly remembering how thoroughly Blake had tongue-
fucked her pussy the last night she saw him. “Ross got stuck in Georgia and called me
at the last minute.” She wasn’t going to apologize for being late.

He opened the back door and tossed his bag on the seat. When he was settled in
front, Lilly pulled away from the curb and merged back into traffic. She was all but
squirming in her seat and couldn’t look at him.

“What, no kiss hello? It’s been a long time, Lilly.”

She ignored his comment about the kiss. She knew if they started, they’d never
make it out of the airport.

“You are even sexier than I remembered. Is the wet tee shirt for my benefit?”

She cringed inwardly. “Thanks for noticing.” Somehow he was sexier too, but she
wasn’t giving him the satisfaction of hearing her say it. “Are you still working in the
North Sea?” As if she didn’t know. She’d secretly followed his career through her


She glanced at him in time to see him run his fingers through his short hair. “Aren’t
you getting a little old for playing in the dirt?” she asked. He was the same age as Ross.
It was clear by his magnificent build that his job as an oil driller, in addition to being
dangerous, kept him in tip-top shape.

His chuckle was as sexy as Lilly remembered, and ran across her tingling senses
like a lover’s caress, keeping her nipples hard and her pussy wet. “You look like you’ve
been playing in dirt yourself. Plus you’re as feisty as ever. Someone should have tamed
you a long time ago.”

There was an underlying threat in his tone that turned Lilly warm inside, because
she knew what Blake’s preference was for dealing out his form of punishment.
Sometimes Lilly had been naughty on purpose, just to feel his hard cock… If he kept
this up they wouldn’t make it home. Why did everything he said turn into a sexual
memory? It was a good thing she was sitting down, her panties were dripping. “You
tried that once.” She knew she was baiting him but it was all part of the game.

“Yeah. That was the best night of my life. You were wild.”

Ohmygod…he didn’t go there. Lilly began to squirm as she remembered of his hand
on her naked bottom and what a spanking had led to. The memory made her blood hot,
and she turned breathless, and a little frightened. “Those days are over.” She hoped he
got the message, as weak as it sounded. Her heart was pounding like a drum in her

Blake threw his head back and laughed loudly. “We’ll have to wait and see what’s
over, Lilly.”


TALK DIRTY TO ME was a fun read. I love the age-old story of girl meets brother’s best friend and secretly adores him from afar until one magical night … that is kind of where it ended for Blake and Lily. Generally the girl falls hard and goes all swoon-woozy over said guy, but this time Blake was the one in trouble. So he did what every guy does that can’t confront their true feelings … he disappeared … and broke Lily’s heart.  Jack ass! Why can’t guys ever just deal? ARGH! Take a chance for a change! But I will say in Blake’s defense that he had a couple of valid concerns. First, their first time was Lily’s first time. And Lily had just turned 18 so she was pretty young. Blake didn’t want to scare her and didn’t want to tie her down so soon. Then there was the chance that getting away from her would calm his desire for her. *snort* Well, it was a theory.

Long story short, Blake does the disappearing act a few more times over the years and Lily has had enough. Now her brother is getting married and Blake is coming back for the wedding. She plans to avoid him as much as possible, but then her brother drops a bombshell. She has to pick up Blake and keep him with her for a couple of days until the wedding because he is stuck out of town at work. Avoidance plan out the window. Check.

Lily ends up psyching herself out and picking Blake up. She chants mantras like “He’s just a man” and silly things like that to calm her desire that flares the moment his name is mentioned. Care to guess what happens as soon as she sees him? And let’s not forget that Blake secretly adores Lily too. Well, they don’t even make it out of the parking lot of the airport. These two steam up the pages in no time flat.  Despite her inability to tell Blake no, Lily struggles with how to let him go, knowing the realistically he will disappear once again in a few days.

But things are different this time. Something seems … not quite the same. So Lily tests Blake at the rehearsal dinner. Part of her is getting back at him for screwing her brains out a few short hours prior to flirting with the buxom slut next to him at the dinner and the other part stems from a devious side that wonders if Blake really even cares. Game on! Lily’s grab-ass dance partner wastes no time in annoying Blake enough for him to bolt away from the table and snatch her away. And Blake has a devious side of his own in executing Lily’s punishment for baiting him. *waggles brows*

But the conundrum is yet unresolved. Will Blake disappear into the night after the wedding as he always has, or will Lily be able to force him into admitting his true feelings before he vanishes? And if te worst happens, will she be able to survive him leaving her once again?

TALK DIRTY TO ME was a hawt read! I mean, as much as I could never talk dirty myself, hearing such graphic sexual phrases whispered into your ear is beyond stimulating. Blake and Lily have a great connection and quickly draw the reader in to their world of love and loss. They are a believable couple and within pages I wanted them to be together forever. I also enjoyed that Blake and Lily have a history so they don’t have to waste any time becoming acquainted with their preferences. They just get down and dirty in a hurry. For a quick, entertaining read, this book is exactly what you need to pass a couple of hours.
