Book Description:

Up-and-coming photographer Judith Ashton is pretty sure she has everything in her life under control. That is, until a blast from the past comes back to taunt her, in the shape of Caleb Steele, her older brother's best friend...and the man who broke her heart eight years ago. Their chemistry is combustible, but she's been fooled once by this player, and she's not going there again.

To pro rugby player Caleb, Judith has always been his Kryptonite. But his former playboy lifestyle is the last thing she wants to be involved in. In the midst of her brother's threats to back off, and the deal of his career sending him far away from her, he knows he's playing with fire. And this is one game he's going to lose.

My Review:

Talking Dirty With the Player (Talking Dirty #2) by Jackie Ashenden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received Talking Dirty with the Player by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

I haven’t read anything written by Jackie Ashenden before this and I will say I have already added the first book in the series to my reading list. I enjoyed Jackie’s writing style, the characters were well developed and I found this story quite exciting, the secondary characters were great and this is probably why I feel the need to go read book 1 in this series.

We meet Judith Ashton she is the little sister of Joseph Ashton who is getting married and of course his best friend Caleb Steele is right there by his side. Judith is a photographer and trying very hard to stay clear of her brother’s best friends Caleb.

Caleb is a tall sexy rugby player who loves to tease Judith, he quite enjoys making her uncomfortable. Caleb things Judith has very little patient for him and does things to her just to get under her skin. When they do have conversations you can feel the heat rolling off them. But of course there is some history here and it didn’t end well and Judith prefers to stay far away from Caleb.

But Caleb has a job he would like Judith to be involved in and Judith of course wants nothing to do with it. But it is for charity and things start to heat up.

This is a story of two old friends who have a past and you know deep down could have a future. The story full of romance, tension, some funny moments even announce (in a good way) at times while things were playing out between these too.

Talking Dirty with the Player is a fun, sexy, romantic, and hot, sizzling read. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys romance. The ending is fantastic!

I have rated Talking Dirty with the Player a 4 star rating.

About the Author:
Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old. Mild mannered fantasy/SF/pseudo-literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the more serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart – writing romance. She particularly likes to write dark, emotional stories with alpha heroes who've just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick-ass heroines.

She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies (possibly dead guppies by the time you read this). When she's not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.
