Review: Dirty Talk by Megan Erickson

Title: Dirty Talk

Author: Megan Erickson

Synopsis:

When the one you shouldn't want is the one you can't resist…
Brent Payton works hard, plays hard, and has earned his ladies' man reputation. But he's more than just a good time, even though no one seems to see it. Until a gorgeous brunette with knockout curves and big, thoughtful eyes walks into his family's garage and makes Brent want more.

Ivy Dawn and her sister are done with men, all of them. They've uprooted their lives too many times on account of the opposite sex, but that's over now. The plan seems easy until a sexy, dirty-talking mechanic bursts in Ivy's life and shakes everything up.

Brent can't resist the one person who sees past his devil-may-care façade, and Ivy finds it harder and harder to deny how happy he makes her. But she has secrets of her own and when the truth comes out, she must decide if she'll run again or if she'll take a chance on forever.

***MY REVIEW***

5 out of 5 stars

Dirty Talk, the second installment in the Mechanics of Lover series, was another great book by the amazing Megan Erickson. Her writing really just keeps getting better and better and as of right now Dirty Talk is my favorite of her books.

This book checked off all the boxes for what I consider to be a grade-A contemporary romance. It was humorous. It was sweet. It was steamy. And surprisingly it was very emotional and serious given that it about the most carefree of the Payton brothers. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Brent and Ivy and getting to see how their relationship progressed. I especially loved reading about Ivy's daughter, Violet and the interactions that Brent had with her. My heart almost couldn't take the cuteness.

The one thing that I didn't like about this book is that it didn't really go into detail about Ivy and her sister Alex's past as much as I wanted it to. As a result, the fact that the sisters were so afraid of their past coming to Tory to haunt them didn't feel as impactful as I think it was supposed to be. But given that the next book in this series is about Alex, hopefully the questions I had about their pasts will be answered then.

Overall, this book was definitely another win for me reading-wise and has proven without a doubt that my slightly obsessive love for Megan Erickson's books is not unfounded.
