Standalone contemporary romance.
Because first love deserves a second chance
One shot at a second chance.
I fell madly in love at first sight with Jane Lewis.
The girl with bright green eyes, a pretty smile, and great ass owned my heart. I thought she was happy with the status quo, but 10 years later, I foolishly let her go. Despite dating other women, no one compares to my first love. We are meant to be together, and I'm going to try my damnedest to convince her of that.
Luke Anders tricked me. The deal was sealed before I knew he was behind it.
We agreed to be just friends. Simple. Easy. But it's not just the weather that's hot in Texas. I was a fool to think I could resist him. He knows how to work his charms and those kissable lips, that great jaw, and biceps. We are here to work, but he has become downright distracting.
I'm strong. I can handle one month of his flirtatious sexual torture. But if I happen to fall in bed with that sexy bastard for a night, or three, does that make me weak? Asking for a friend, of course.
I guess I'm about to find out when love gets messy, it's not just the talk that's dirty.
This story had potential but the continual bringing up of the past and the long drawn out romantic back and forth between the main characters spoiled it for me. The basis of the storyline was interesting; the reconnecting of old lovers, movie making, misunderstanding, jealousy and backstabbing, but it was far too drawn out to keep my attention. I did enjoy find the duel narration (hence the 4 star rating instead of 3.) They both brought the characters to life, their voices complimented each other and their narration managed to make the story more interesting. I think that if it wasn't for the entertaining narration, I wouldn't have made it to the end of the book.

This book took me through so many emotions~ I loved the characters, the story and the narration! I feel like this book really hit it out of the park. It was the sweetest 2nd chance romance where you are just screaming at the characters to pull it together. Loved it!
The narration really was fantastic! The voices were clear and very enjoyable to listen to. I would love to listen to more of their work.

5 BRILLIANT stars! Be prepared for an amazing performance. This is one of the Best Second Chance Romances I have listened and read.
For goodness sake! Am I dreaming? This audio book is a wonderful combination of talent between the author, S. L. Scott, and the narrators, Joe Hempel & Melissa Moran. It was a pleasure to listen to their amazing performance. They did an excellent job.
S. L. Scott is one of my favourite authors. She NEVER disappoints me. Joe & Melissa are like “The Dream Team”. Their voices matched perfectly to the characters she created for this book. They made me fall deep into the story. She chose wisely. It was like I was there, listening and imagining from the first row.
As I said above, the performance left me speechless as the story. The plot is unique. I love everything. Jane and Luke were brought to live brilliantly. This is one of the Best Second Chance Romance I have listened and read. Yes! I listened and read at the same time. It was a powerful combination. I highly recommend you to do both things. You will enjoy it to the fullest.
I spend a great time while listening and reading. I felt a mix of feelings. It was filled with funny and steamy moments. Every time I listen to Joe perform Luke I felt goose bumps on my skin. Luke is the man you dream of. He is cocky, sweet and quite possessive. His passion is his job but Jane will change that. He was so focused on his career that he forgot what it really matters in life. Hopefully he will rectify the situation.
I found myself very identified with Jane. She is the kind of woman who knows what she wants. Her professional life is pretty perfect. Her dreams are becoming true but her heart is missing something (someone). He has a name. Luke. He is her Achilles heel, her soft spot. They had a past. They did hurt each other. However, fate had other plans for them. They will have a second chance to fix what they had or to heal and move on in different paths.
For audio lovers (like me) this is an audio book you shall not miss. It has all the elements that make it perfect.

I wanted Luke's story when I met him in Sweet Talk. He's Danny's friend and he seemed to be in a world of pain.
But I had no idea Janie would be the girl for him.
She had always been the girl for him.
But something went wrong and they parted ways.
She found someone new.
Luke found his solace in the beds of the women in LA.
Janie found her solace in the bed of a total jerk.
But fate or kismet or destiny refused to keep these two lovers apart.
And the second-chance love story is beautifully done. Luke and Jane are perfect for each other. They not only want and need each other, they were made for each other.
The narrators are great. I felt more in tune with the characters thanks to the narrators who really brought Luke and Jane to life.
First off, the narrators were fantastic! Really enjoyed their performance.
This is a second chance story that follows Sweet Talk, although it's not necessary to read that one. Luke and Jane were high school sweethearts. After a breakup, they are forced to spend a month together on a movie set. These two still care about each other, however the timing has never seemed to be right for them. Luke is totally lovable and Jane is a strong, sexy woman. This is a sweet romance with a couple heart stopping moments rolled in. And the ending was just perfect!
I loved Dirty Talk by S.L. Scott the first time I read it when it was originally released. I loved it even more in audio. I have always felt audiobooks bring books to life in a different way than just reading it and that was the case with Dirty Talk. Joe Hempel and Melissa Moran brought Luke and Jane alive for me again! They were amazing narrators.
We loved Luke Anders when we first met him in Sweet Talk (a must read from S.L. Scott as well) and knew he lost the love of his life. Now we get his story. Luke and Jane were high school sweethearts that lost their way following their professional dreams. They have spent almost two years apart, but their hearts know who they belong too.
Now they will be working together for a month. Can they find a way back to each other or will their past finally break them apart?
I loved this second chance romance. It was emotional, a bit angsty and full of sexiness. The narrators really brought this story and the characters to life! I loved it!
I was really excited to get Luke and Jane’s story. It’s a second chance romance that will have you falling for both characters. Ten years have separated these two but neither one has ever had the other very far from their mind. Luke has maneuvered events so that he and Jane will be working together closely for the next several months. Escaping Luke’s charms and dirty words soon become impossible for Jane. Not wanting to taint her growing reputation in the movie industry they decide to keep their rekindled relationship under wraps. But a connection and infatuation as strong as theirs isn’t easy to hide. Heat filled glances and stolen kisses are bound to be noticed eventually.
“Resisting him is still something I struggle with, and I don’t have the energy to keep up appearances right now.”
I have both read the ebook and listened to the audiobook. Both ways the story is good. Both narrators are enjoyable to listen to and do a good job capturing the emotions of the characters. A slight issue that I had with the audiobook was with the random flashbacks. These happen right in the middle of a scene, usually without much of a lead-in. The flashbacks are easily identified in the ebook with the entire flashback being in italics. However in the audio, there’s nothing written in the book to signal the flashback, so when listening there’s no distinction letting you know it just randomly jumped to a flashback. I realize the narrators had to stick to the exact writing but each time it happened it threw me off until I realized what was happening. An example is below...
“Why are my hands sweating? It’s Jane. My Jane. The girl I’ve loved almost half my life. The girl I’ve known since we were sixteen… “We’re gonna be busted, Luke.” She rubs her hand over my leg. She’s nervous, which adds to her excitement.”
Half of that is currently going through his mind / happening and half of that is a flashback. You can see how listening to that and not having italics doesn’t really clarify which part of it is a flashback, it could easily make sense to all be currently happening. Even still, that’s just a slight thing and otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the audiobook.
Narration was excellent for this book! I loved the dual narration and the perspectives of these characters. It was so fun to hear how each narrator inflected different character's tones and voices.
For the story I thought the premise was interesting, but it promised more drama than we got. Also back and forth of the romance was a little too much for me. I wished after the first couple of times they got completely together. Overall I really enjoyed this listening experience and that's probably what kept me in it to the end. I also am happy to report the characters do get their HEA and it's beautiful!
What a great book!!! Everyone needs to meet Luke Anders…. I mean, who doesn’t love a dirty talking romantic? That is exactly what Luke is too, a dirty talking romantic at heart! This is a GREAT second chance love story! Luke will totally walk away with your heart! I’m not gonna like here; Luke won me over right from the start! The humor and quick wit was completely heart-stealing! He just oozes this sexuality… and a personality… he was completely sex in jeans!
Jane has been head over heels in love with Luke for as long as she can remember. However, she was read for more. He wasn’t and couldn’t make him understand so she walked away. She left her broken heart at his feet and took his heart with her. Here we are years later and they are tossed together… professionally… they have to work together. I’ll be honest; I wanted to smack Jane around a bit… stop messing with my man! She went so back and forth with Luke that I’m shocked he didn’t have whiplash! It was hot and cold, fire and ice. They are just complicated and their history is full of pain… but full of love too!
Now Luke has one chance to win her back and show her what she really means to him. I loved how Luke really figured out what he wanted and went for it! He wasn’t taking his heart back… he wanted Jane’s! What do you think… can they find their way back to each other? Is it too late or has too much time apart changed them so much? Totally a sweet and heart-warming story that will tingle your heart! I loved the bit of angst and the wit all tossed in!!
The narrators were amazing here!! Seriously, I love Joe Hempel!! Melissa Moran complimented him so well! They really had great chemistry together! I found myself smiling… just walking around with my headset on… smiling! I adored them! I’ve never seen this side of Hempel’s narration skills before… it was a hit for me!! They knocked Dirty Talk out of the park! Seriously, it was brought to life right in my head!
It is no secret that I love SL Scott, it's also no secret that I love second chance romances - combined, it makes Dirty Talk one of my favorite reads ever!
Jane and Luke - Oh Wow!
There were times I wanted to smack Jane, but in the end I loved her. Luke was just about perfect to me, but he deserved a smack or two himself. Together they were amazing though!
There was humor, bit of drama and lots of heat!!
The narration for Dirty Talk was perfection!! LOVE IT!
Loved this one!! 5 Stars!
The audiobook of this amazing story was beautifully narrated and pulled me, once again, right into the story and kept me there.
Dirty Talk is the second book in the Talk To Me Series but is a Standalone read. The book contains flashbacks but this adds to the feel of the story knowing where they've come from.
The chemistry is there from the beginning and you can see Luke and Jane should be together. Some of the times in this book i wanted to reach in and slap them both up side the head and say look at each other really look, you both love each other what are you playing at!! But this didn't spoil this story it just pulled me in rooting for them more to pull their head out of the arse's and follow their hearts which will lead them to each other and their HEA!!!
I do love a good second chance love and Luke and Jane deserved their chance. I would recommend Dirty Talk for a second chance love story and S.L. Scott writing as an Author.
