Blog Tour: Dirty Talk by Megan Erickson - Review (@MeganErickson_) (@avonbooks)

Author: Megan Erickson
Publication Date: September 15, 2015
Published: Avon Impulse

My Rating:
Brent Payton has a reputation for wanting to have fun, all the time. It’s well-earned after years of ribbing his brothers and flirting with every girl he meets, but he’s more than just a good time, even though nobody takes the time to see it. When a new girl walks into his family’s garage with big thoughtful eyes and legs for days, this mechanic wants something serious for the first time.
Ivy Dawn is done with men, all of them. She and her sister uprooted their lives for them too many times and she’s not willing to do it again. Avoiding the opposite sex at all costs seems easy enough, until the sexy mechanic with the dirty mouth bursts into her life.

Brent can’t resist the one woman who sees past his devil-may-care facade and Ivy finds it harder and harder to deny how happy he makes her. But Ivy has secrets she hasn’t shared and when the truth comes out, she must decide if she’s willing to take one more chance on love or let him go forever.


“A super sweet, extra sexy second chance romance that will have you laughing out loud and needing a minute to cool off. Dirty Thoughts is right!”
— Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author

“Megan Erickson ratchets up the romance and sizzle in her sexy new series. The Mechanics of Love will rev readers’ hearts.”
— Jennifer Ryan, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

“Megan Erickson writes hot, hot, HOT stories packed with emotion and humor. You’re going to want to read everything she’s ever written!”
— Sophie Jordan, USA Today bestselling author

"Why do you look like Alex, but you're not Alex?"

Dirty Talk picks up right where Dirty Thoughts left off in the best way. With the best Payton brother (in my opinion) at the focus. 

On first glance, I knew I was going to love this one. Brent, the middle Payton son and the comic relief from the other books, on the surface is his funny and adorable self. Having that sexy Payton charm that they all have, but where his older brother is serious, he is easy going and always with a smile on his face. This book allowed a different side of him to show. I mean, who doesn't love a man with a dog named Honeybear?

Ivy Dawn, single mom, came as a package deal with the new mechanic Alex, her older sister. There was something about Ivy that I was immediately drawn to. As well as Brent. She wasn't without her own hidden scars. Some her own, others she took on from her sister. The Dawn girls were a tight knit trio, no men allowed. Love has no time for that.

I loved how Brent basically broke down Ivy's walls and forced his way in. He did it in a way that wasn't overly aggressive and possessive because that wasn't the kind of man he was. And with that, Ivy allowed Brent to open up and really show the different layers to him. He didn't have to be the clown to keep smiles on everyone's face. He could be the hero. 

What Megan always does well is give you side characters to really fall in love with. Davis, he was my favorite. An injured firefighter and Brent's neighbor really stole my heart. Delilah from Dirty Thoughts also makes a return. In this, she seems to come alive as well.

Dirty Talk is in the top three favorite Megan Erickson books. It was funny, romantic, and a bit angsty. I would have liked a little more angst to be honest. The dark issues that plagued the Dawn Sisters was serious but the resolution that came felt a little quick. I hope that we get a bit more back story in Alex's book next. 

Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf.
She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.
