Emmeline Amos is sick of her ex saying she's boring and prissy. After all, she works for a phone-sex company! (As general manager, but still.) On a rare girls' night out, fueled by blender drinks and bravado, Em accepts a shocking dare—to handle a call herself. But it's tipsy Em who gets an earful from an irate single father on the other end of the line. Awkward.
But not as awkward as discovering that same mad dad is Call Girls' gorgeous new programmer. Jax Hawthorne is still upset that his daughter called the "girlfriend store" on his behalf, but he can't deny he'd choose a hot-librarian type like Em if he were looking for love. Which he's not.
Em wants to do more than just talk the talk. So she makes a bawdy bargain with Jax. They've both been burned before—this time, they'll keep it strictly physical. Except as soon as they settle on no strings attached, things start to get tangled.
Dakota Cassidy is one of my favorite romance authors and her Contemporary are just as fun as her Paranormal!
What I thought of this book.
In book one Emmeline Amos was the mediator between Dixie and Kane, so now it’s her turn to be in the spotlight. Em has been humiliated front of all who live in Plum Orchard by none other than Llewellyn the resident mean ‘girl’ who runs the Mags. She plastered it for all to see Emmeline’s ex-husband in his cross dressing glory and in front of the hunk Jax.
Em wants to have a little fun and working around the Call Girls she has learned a thing or two but now she just needs someone to experiment on. When Jax seems to be interested in her she decides to ask him if he would like to have a fling with no strings attached. When either one is through they just have to say done.
The more they are together and she sees him with his daughter it becomes harder to just want no strings but her life is a bit of a mess with her ex-husband and those of plum orchard especially her mother making things difficult. Jax goes along with the no strings sex but he wants strings, the more he is with her the more strings he wants but they both have some things to deal with first.
Something to Talk About was a fun, fast paced romance that had me chuckling. It was nice to see Em grow a spine and tell off that nasty Llewellyn, and I think that was probably my favorite part of this book. I was laughing so hard as I could just picture it in my head. I enjoyed Em in the first book and I am glad we got to know more about her and the hunky computer programmer Jax. (He has some equally handsome brothers that I would like to know more about as well!)
If you like fun, humorous contemporary romances then you really need to hang out in Plum Orchard as it’s a lot of fun!
Scarlet Chase is great with her sultry sexy southern accent as she narrates these books. Her males all sound a bit the same but they are still decent. I really like this narrator.
