I originally bought this title because I was looking for a funny romance. Humor is pretty subjective, but I didn't feel like this book was especially light or funny. Talk Dirty to Me is an emotional story about two people who were once engaged, who are brought back to the same town after their mutual childhood friend died. Our heroine is trying to rebuild a life she destroyed herself after years of meanness and bad decisions; our hero is trying to make sense of the woman who left him long ago. The writing is solid and the narrator does a great job and it's totally worth reading, but it is a serious book with a few amusing moments, not a comedy.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
I thought this story about Dixie, a former mean girl, returning to her hometown might have potential. I was wrong. Dixie had been a one woman bullying machine, taking great delight in hurting everyone she met growing up.
Since no real reason was ever given for Dixie's sadistic behavior, I just couldn't buy her change into a caring, compassionate adult. Yes, we are do stupid things are teens but normally not with such venom, unless provoked.
So, I got bored and stopped listening. Life is too short.....
