Review: Talk Dirty To Me - Ginny Glass and Inez Kelley

For Nora MacGregor, the sinful voice of a stranger gives her permission to explore her deepest fantasies – fantasies that only exist outside her daily drudgery in the science lab. ‘James’, challenges Nora’s icy, clinical ideas about the power of sex. The arrangement – she talks to him and he returns her lost dissertation notes, page by page. What he can’t give her is human touch, tangible sweetness, attributes she finds in the company and gentle romance of Dr. Jarod Reed.

Jarod, who seized an opportune moment and became the mysterious James, is now trapped in a mess of his own making, unable to let Nora know that he wants more than an naughty bedtime story. The anonymity of being Nora’s cell phone lover frees Jarod to reach into the not- not-so-scholarly pursuits of the flesh but may have cost him the chance to make those fantasies a reality.

Nora MacGregor isn’t particularly interested in sex; in fact her dissertation is based on sexual emotions being just a biological reaction. Obviously given the nature of the book, her view is about to be changed. However, not only does Nora meet Jarod, a professor at the university, who stirs something in her, she also starts an unusual telephone only relationship with James, the guy who found her dissertation research when she dropped it from her bag. Little does Nora know that Jarod and James are in fact the same person – he is well aware of the situation.

Talk Dirty To Me, while fairly short, is much more than a run-of-the-mill erotic story. It has proper, well developed characters and an interesting plot concept as well as being hot! The sex scenes are very natural and not over the top in any way and the relationship between Jarod and Nora develops nicely through the book.

I wasn’t aware that this was the second book of a series when I read it but as far as I can tell, that didn’t make much difference to me. It’s a nice easy read and I’ll be definitely looking out for other books by these authors.
