Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, a man shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.

L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company's hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.

They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.

 
 
After meeting Alex in Dirty Talk, I couldn't wait to read her book! I loved her tough as nails attitude and how she owned who she was. She didn't try and change for anyone and I really admired her for that. As tough as Alex is, she isn't invincible. She has been deeply hurt in the past and has known emotional pain that she still carries around with her to this day. My heart ached for Alex because she didn't deserve what she had to endure, even though it has made her stronger because of it. She has sworn off men altogether, but seeing her sister settling down and happy, she secretly longs for that happiness of her own.
 
After an extremely hot night with Spencer, Alex's world is knocked off its axis, as for the first time someone is willing to put her needs and desires first and actually asks what she wants. However, the sexy Brit is only in Tory on business and will be on his way again.
 
I really enjoyed Spencer and Alex together. They had some really sexy times and I loved seeing them open up to one another. However, she's afraid to really let herself fall for him because she knows their time together isn't permanent. The conflict in this one is pretty predictable, but the resolution was worth it. I really loved how everything wrapped up and turned out for these crazy kids.
 
My favorite part of this one was being back with the Payton men and the people they hold dear. Cal, Brent, Jack, Jenna, Ivy, Violet, Asher all make appearances, as well as some of their friends, and the tight knit group really just made my heart happy. Alex is surrounded by love and family and I loved how protective they were of her.
 
I did find myself having some trouble staying engaged and paying attention in this one though. I liked Alex and Spencer, but I wasn't pulled in like I was with grumpy Cal and Jenna, or with Brent, Ivy, and Violet. This was still an enjoyable read though and I am definitely not ready to say goodbye to these characters!

  2. Great review, Jess! I'm reading this one tonight/tomorrow and already love what I've read so far. A little nervous because I don't like one night stands/I'm not staying her long story lines, but I trust Megan! Glad we get plenty of the old gang too. :)

  3. I loved that she was tough as nails as well, Jess! And that she didn't change herself. I agree though it wasn't as great as the 1st 2 books. Brent and Ivy will always be my favorite couple of the series! And tell me you're dying for a Delilah and Davis book too, Jess?!
    Lovely review! :)
