His mouth is hot enough to melt the ice
Ten days. That’s all I’m asking for.
But not one of my NHL teammates is willing to cough up a sister, cousin, or trusted friend to play my fake girlfriend for this wedding.
Pucking BS. Yeah, my mouth has been known to get me into places I don’t belong. But this Class Five panty melter is on lockdown because the last thing I need is another complication.
I’m about to give up when fate delivers the answer to my prayers.
I’m not her type.
She doesn’t date jocks.
All this sharp, sexy over-achiever wants is a little fun, an escape from her career driven life.
It’s a simple arrangement. So why am I complicating it?

Dirty Talker is definitely a feel good book to me, a fake relationship story with plenty of potential, turning into something more very quickly but somehow didn’t feel rushed. It didn’t disappoint!
Harlow is focused on her career and oblivious to what is really going on and not looking for a relationship. Losing up a little is not easy for her and too serious at times to enjoy life but she is witty, fun and bubbly, especially with that sexy and too charming hockey player. She was so funny at times and endearing. A mix of cuteness and strength.
Wade is unexpected, a breath of fresh air. A man close to his family, focusing on his career as well and looking for a woman who would be willing to be his fake girlfriend for a week. Totally crazy but when there’s that little something in the air, even though he was the only one to really feel it, it was kinda hilarious. Because Harlow was not falling for his charms and clueless about him or his world. So refreshing!
The story went smoothly, as the main characters managed to play the fake couple so naturally and took time to learn about the other. I appreciated their easy banter, their smoking hot chemistry and the way they could make me smile so hard it hurts. Even if their story started on false pretenses it didn’t make it less real. It was genuine, hot, passionate and sincere.
I enjoyed the progress of the storyline, when the main characters really learn about the other, showing their part of vulnerability that no one would see.
There was no miscommunication and they were always honest about how they felt. Really appreciated it.
They are moving, insanely cute, the fire they make and the dirty talks… le freaking sigh. I adored them so much.
Wade’s family was hilarious and I definitely want to be part of it. Welcoming and down to earth, embracing Harlow onto the family.
I was totally hooked from the beginning until the end, rooting for these two! I swooned, I giggled, laughed tons for sure. Oh my, the butterflies!!
It was a delightful read! Just loved it!
