Publisher's Summary

From a secret duo of USA Today best-selling authors comes another complete stand-alone in the Single Dads Club set of stories.  

Turn-ons: party girls. Platinum blondes. Zero expectations. I used to think if you could combine all three into one female, you'd have the perfect woman. The other guys in the Single Dads Club razz me for wearing the crown of the forever bachelor. The one who'll be in his 70s chasing down young hotties in his wheelchair. 

Then why the hell does Ava Pearson - an outdoorsy girl, a brunette, and a woman who screams stability and responsibility - seem to be the only woman on my mind lately? Especially when I've got enough obligations without adding any complications to the mix - my son, my bar...well, that's about it. But that's enough for a guy like me.  

It's the cupcakes. It's gotta be the cupcakes she bakes that keep me coming back for more. After all, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? Well, it's apparently a direct target to his dick, too.  

Did I forget to mention she's my buddy's daughter...another member's daughter?  

Ava might say she can handle being friends with benefits, but I'm not sure she can. Unfortunately for her, I'm too selfish of a prick to care - until I do.

Sweet Treats and Dirty Talk

This was an easy and sexy friends with benefits romance. I hadn't read/listened to the previous book in this interconnected standalone series, so this was my first exposure to our hero, Dane Murray. Even though this is book 2 in the series, it can be enjoyed without reading the previous book and I had no problems getting wrapped up in the world of Climax Cove.

Dane is the classic no strings and no commitment alpha, but as the story progresses we see that there is much more to this arrogant single dad. I liked that he was open and honest about what he wanted (and didn't), but I did feel that his epiphany at the end of the book was out of character and came out of nowhere. The ending and epilogue made up for it though and left me with a smile on my face. I may not have particularly liked him in the beginning, but I found that Dane had wormed his way into my heart by the end. The twist regarding Toby was not one I saw coming and certainly helped change my overall opinion of Dane too.

Wen Ross was perfect as the sexy and cocky Dane. He had me swooning one moment for Dane and then squirming in my seat the next! I love how both Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott give each character a distinct voice too so that I never have issues figuring out who's speaking. Duet narration always makes a story stand out and flow more naturally for me as well. This was an enjoyable listen and has me very interested in reading/listening to the next book about Garrett!

Sweet, Hot and Steamy!

Wow, what a sweet, and smoking hot romance! Dane and Ava have such explosive chemistry! They have a one night stand they can't get out of their minds. But their relationship goes from fiery hot one moment to ice cold the next only to heat back up again. Dane is an unapologetic single man. He has his hands full raising his son, and running his business. But he never saw Ava, the beautiful, sassy, baker coming. She gets past all his defenses and he keeps going back for more. I loved their fun banter and how their relationship progressed. I always enjoy listening to Wen Ross. and Kai Kennicott's narrations. Their duet narration is so smooth and their chemistry makes this story even more steamy and delightful. This is my first listen to this author, and I will definitely listen to the first book in this series.

My Two Pennies

The Single Dads get hotter and hotter. Did you hear the one about the bartender that walks into the bakery? Dane and Ava are this off the charts hot in this deliciously sexy story. Dane is an incredible dad and hearing his story about how he has taken on the single dad status broke my heart and had me smiling at the same time. This man will do anything and everything for his son (within reason) but he is THE man you’d want to see as a father figure. Ava is not your typical baker and her shop goes to show you that. Hearing her reasoning as to why she puts particular men into the “off limits” category is understandable but seeing her push her boundaries and follow her heart is beautiful. I am hooked on this series and can’t wait to jump into our next Dad. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Made me love Dirty Talker even more!

Dirty Talker (Single Dads Club #2) by Piper Rayne is an amazing feather in this talented author duo’s cap! Dirty Talker is sizzling HOT, brings the grins, chuckles, snorts, full-on belly laughs, sighs, gasps, and sappy tears of joy! Dane is my new favorite dirty talker! This one brings a twist that had me thumping the ache out of my chest and had me loving him even more!
In Dirty Talker, we get to know Dane Murray beyond the arrogant player that we glimpsed in the previous book. I enjoyed Dane then because I knew there was more to him than we saw. He was the fun guy, the center of attention. In this book, that hasn’t changed. However, we get to see how deep he is…and that’s not a pun or euphemism (this time lol). Dane made me fall in love with him. His devotion to his son and his town is admirable when he turns that to…something else…you have to read it to find out what happens! I swear, if I didn’t already enjoy him in the previous book, Dane would have won me over in this one. There is so much more to him than his sexy #groincleavage and dirty mouth.

Ava Pearson is one of those women who has her priorities straight, but when she gets sidetracked by Dane, it is so much fun to watch! She creates magic in her bakery, The Mad Batter. Her cupcakes are like crack, according to Dane. She makes me want to visit and load up on her sugary goods (that wasn’t a euphemism, either lol). Her initial disdain for Dane just made me grin and I knew it was going to be good! And I love her relationship with her roommates! They’re not just women sharing space. They’re friends who know and love each other and it’s beautiful.

The passion between Ava and Dane is wicked HOT! Their craving for each other is addicting! What also hooked me was the range of feels! I never expected to feel tears, other than tears from laughing my head off, but I loved Ava and Dane so much!

Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross brought such life to Dirty Talker with the way they narrate! They are my favorite narrators and I wish they performed every single audiobook for Piper Rayne and all my other faves! I swear, listening to it made me think I had a movie playing in the background. Kai made me believe I was in Ava's head. Wen made me believe I was in Dane's. Yes, I know that's their goal/purpose, but not all narrators are as successful in doing so, in my opinion. I could listen to Kai and Wen all day.

I loved everything about this audiobook, from the rockin duo of Piper Rayne to the talented pro couple of Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross! I need more from all four of them!

Dane, the lovable brute, single dad

Dane is a manwh*re...and he's not ashamed of it. He's a single dad to an 8yo boy, runs a bar and tries to stay involved in his friends' lives. He is attracted to Ava, the baker across the street from his bar, buuuut, she's the daughter of one of his friends. Eeeep! Ava likes Dane and adores his son...and before we know it, Dane and Ava are involved in a hot fling. What will happen when the fling comes to an end? Can Ava deny her feelings for Dane? What is Dane's big secret? I didn't like Dane in book 1 but he redeemed himself in his book...but I can't say why because I'll give it away! Good story.

Single Dad Forever?

Dane has a reputation for being a love 'em and leave 'em single dad until he meets Ava. They have a one night stand which ends up being an exclusive friends with benefits relationship. Ava's dad is one of the members of the Single Dad's Club so there's that complication. Ava opens a bakery across from Dane's bar. He compares her cupcakes to "crack" since they are so addicting. Ava gets along with Dane's son, Toby really well and helps to teach him how to bake, too. Of course, there comes a time when Ava wants more from Dane than he thinks he can give her. Until a situation happens that makes him realize that he loves her. He has to try to win her back. I really like the epilogues to this book that allow us to see the couple in the future. The narration duet of Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross was wonderful! Piper Rayne has done it again with this fantastic story.

Dane, dirty talker, single dad!

After listening to book 1, I was unsure what this book would bring. Dane is not a likable character, at least not at first. He is a single dad, not interested in settling down, but did enjoy his quick flings. So what is it about Ava that has him coming back for more? Ava owns a cupcake bakery, and is attracted to Dane. She agrees to do the friends with benefits route with Dane, but can both of them enjoy the benefits without getting attached? I was pleasantly surprised with this book. With Dane being such a jerk, I was unsure if he would redeem his character to me. As we get to know him, his interactions with his sister and his fierce love for his son, I have to say that I am converted. I like Ava, she is a smart woman, and knows what she can and can't handle. She knew going in despite what she told Dane that she liked him for more than the benefits. She just needed to protect her heart. This is a fun, steamy love story and if you love friends to lovers and single dad stories, you will fall for this one too!

As always, Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross become these characters so well, it's hard to remember they are reading a book. They become the movie in your mind, giving voices to the story and making it real. I love their narrations.
