Book Tour! Dirty Talk By S.L. Scott

From the New York Times Bestselling Author of The Resistance comes this new STANDALONE contemporary romance.

Because first love deserves a second chance

One month.

One movie.

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 ten 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.

**BONUS BOOK EDITION of Dirty Talk includes the full novel of Sweet Talk. "Sweet Talk is a fun, sexy, emotionally-rich second chance romance with a charm-your-panties-off hero." ~ New York Times Bestselling Author, Violet Duke

This is my first book by this author, and it is not going to be my last. I liked the pacing, it was excellent and, in a story with some flashbacks, it is important to have the pacing move quickly enough that the flashbacks don’t feel like they are stopping the story. The writing was strong and I was able to relate to both Luke and Jane.

Luke and Jane had amazing chemistry. It was easy to believe that they had been together in the past, and the connection they had made it clear how they would have made the transition from teenagers in love to adults, which is not easy to portray convincingly.

The plotting was interesting; the idea of the rebuilding of the relationship during the story was appealing. I felt like I was in both a second chance and a story detailing the work that goes into keeping the same relationship alive. The idea that Luke was trying to win her back, and that she was resisting, gave it the feeling that it is simultaneously both types of stores, as the author explores not only their past, but also their present.

The machinations of the woman he had slept with in the past, were, in my opinion, not necessary. If there was anything I would change, I think I would have liked to have seen this left out of the book and more time with Luke and Jane as a couple and trying to work through that, the newness at the same time as the familiarity.

I loved the ending and where the author left them, it was perfect. I definitely recommend this book.

I hate when I am in the minority when it comes to a book that it seems like everyone but me is loving.  I liked Dirty Talk but wasn’t in love with it.  I was in love for the majority if the books, I love second chance romances and this one should have been right up my alley.  I started to get annoyed at Jane and Luke, yes both of them screwed up in their own ways, but after a while honestly I was just sort of over it.  I think maybe it is my mood, because this one should have hit all my yes points.  It was sexy, it has drama, and it was at times funny so I just am not sure why I just couldn’t connect.  So it is rare that I will say this but please don’t take my opinion of this book as it being bad, it’s not it is a good book so please ignore my review and pick up Dirty Talk and make your own conclusions.  

ONLY .99 for a very short time. Bonus book inside!


New York Times and USA Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, was always interested in the arts. She grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and willing her days away lost in a good book and the movies.

With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the world those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She's obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. She dreams of seeing one of her own books made into a movie one day as well as returning to Europe. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she's a pro.
