    "I don't want to miss any more." Mira Lyn Kelly is my favorite romance writer. No doubt about it, hands down. Her books feel like coming home. Her heroes make you swoon, and her heroines make you wish you were them - this is the case with Wade and Harlow. And Mira knocks it out of the park again with this book! "This is a man who tries. Though why he tries so hard with me, I don't know." *I was not ready for the ultimate scorching-but-oh-so-sweet swoonfest that is Wade Grady!* He's driven, he's alwa "I don't want to miss any more." Mira Lyn Kelly is my favorite romance writer. No doubt about it, hands down. Her books feel like coming home. Her heroes make you swoon, and her heroines make you wish you were them - this is the case with Wade and Harlow. And Mira knocks it out of the park again with this book! "This is a man who tries. Though why he tries so hard with me, I don't know." *I was not ready for the ultimate scorching-but-oh-so-sweet swoonfest that is Wade Grady!* He's driven, he's always fought for and gone after whatever he wanted. He's a good guy, and a dirty talker. Wade is downright perfect. "I don't walk outside the lines. Ever. But for some reason this man brings out a part of me that wants to grab hold of the adventure and just say yes." Harlow's the reserved, cautious type. She's an overachiever who's put her career first, and she's driven, just like him. But unlike him, she doesn't take risks. She does what's expected of her, just like she's always done. But now she's ready to take a leap. Wade needs a fake girlfriend for his brother's wedding, and he can't find one. Then they meet at a bar with a few friends, and she ends up agreeing to be his date and going with him. I mean, what's 10 days, right? And maybe she can learn to let herself go a bit by doing something she'd typically never do. Except 10 days can either not be enough, be a lifetime, or be life-changing. In this case, and for these two, all of the above. What started out as something fake develops into something that is so very real. The small touches, the glances, their talks, and every little thing between them showing there's something going on... it was heartwarming and so sweet. The chemistry between them... you know Mira Lyn Kelly NEVER disappoints! "Thought I was losing you," (...) "No." Not when it feels like, for the first time in my life, I'm not missing what matters." If you're wondering what sets these two apart from other couples out there? When they're in, they're all in. And that's just special. "'...And then I met you. And you showed me what I was missing. And I want it. I want a life. I want love. And most of all, I want you.'" What it comes down to for me is always what the book made me feel, and it made me smile, and get all emotional and outright happy. The good guy that is Wade needed his own good girl, and she needed someone to show her that her life could be so much more! A downright perfect fourth book for an amazing series!

    5 - "Be the bunny..." Stars! We return to the Slayers Hockey series, with book four; Dirty Talker giving us Wade and Harlow’s story. I love this series so much and with the main trope in this one being a fake relationship I knew it was going to be another winner right from the start. I never say yes… I never do the impulsive thing… The fun thing.

I never say yes… I never do the impulsive thing… The fun thing. This entire book is Mira, once again writing at her absolute best, this series as a whole is up there in my top three favourites of the last couple of years, and it’s because I laughed so hard at points I had to stop reading to compose myself. The sexy times left me fanning myself, and the dual POV makes you love Wade and Harlow together and as individuals equally. "You’ve got skills…" Another absolute winner, I love this series, I just lose myself when I read these books in the best way, and that’s because of how awesome their authors writing is. I rarely get this excited about a book or series anymore, but I literally start smiling as soon as I see each instalment hits my kindle, and I don’t usually stop until well after I have finished reading.

    LOVED this SO MUCH!!! This was yet another well-written story from one of my favorite romance authors. It gave me everything I wanted – it was everything I needed. The title? 100% accurate... holy. tingles. everywhere. Mira’s heroes are always the dreamiest and swooniest and fall hard for their women. But Wade... ohmygoodness.

This was yet another well-written story from one of my favorite romance authors. It gave me everything I wanted – it was everything I needed. The title? 100% accurate... holy. tingles. everywhere. Mira’s heroes are always the dreamiest and swooniest and fall hard for their women. But Wade... ohmygoodness. I think he put a lot more hearts in my eyes than any of the other Slayers hockey players. I really didn’t think that’d be possible. Watching him fall for Harlow was such a beautiful thing. His passion, his need to care for her was touching and so very heartwarming. It made me envy her a bit. I would kill for that kind of adoration. Their chemistry was white hot. It snapped, crackled, and popped! My kindle was seriously sizzling. His filthy mouth? GEEZ LOUISE. It was scrumptious. No matter how hard Harlow tried to resist him, she just couldn’t. She tried hard to ignore his kindness, his sexiness, his honesty... those MF abs. She continually said he’s not her type, tried so hard to convince herself of that. But there was no denying...he is an all-around good guy with a huge heart, hiding inside that gorgeous body of his. Harlow was such a strong and determined heroine. Never getting the love and care she needed growing up, she always felt like she had to prove herself. She craved the attention that she was deprived of her whole life. But she didn’t want to have to depend on anyone. She worked hard for everything she had, with no help from anyone else. But...she sure wouldn’t mind being needed by someone every once in a while.   The relationship between Wade and Harlow went from you’re-not-my-type to maybe to this-is-awkward to I’m-all-in-this-fake-relationship to friends-to-lovers to...so much more. With each turn of the page, seeing their relationship grow, experiencing their hearts opening up and growing and letting each other in gave me all those feel-good feels and delicious little heart flutters. After Wade showed her what it’s like to be cared for, to be acknowledged, to be respected, she was a goner. Girl, SAME. I loved this book so much! I’m pretty sure the smile on my face was ear to ear and wouldn’t leave my face for a long time after I finished. If you’ve read the other books in this series, you’ll want to read this one. If you haven’t, this one can be read as a standalone. And then you can go back and read the others. ;)

    3.75 stars In the previous three books, Wade was more of a background character. So not knowing much about him, I guess the title mislead me more than I realized. It’s not inaccurate, particularly the moments when little to no clothes were involved 😉. Otherwise however, it could’ve been as aptly titled Sweet Talker (I know I know, the whole ‘dirty’ thing is the theme with titles). Dirty Talker is a playful, sweet ’n sexy & kind of adorable quickie read(almost novella short). Like it was literally 3.75 stars In the previous three books, Wade was more of a background character.

I mean it’s not like it should be some sort of requirement or anything, but some moments(especially in the beginning) there was definitely room to expanded upon. i.e. after Harlow agreed to be his fake date & attend his lil bro’s wedding. It’s implied they exchanged some playful & curious texts back & forth getting to know each other while sorting out the deets for their trip. Yet not shared 😢. UM — I’m kinda a sucker for for those in romances. I wanted to read those, dang it! Tbh in the later stages, the plot was a tad convoluted. Nonetheless, I’m far more pleased with DT than not. Mostly just wanted the plot fleshed out a little more & less summarized in places. Oh &...UM...the Kelsey thing was a wee bit AWKWARD.

    Beautiful setting, strong backstories, and unparalleled character development I'm a long-time fan of Mira Lyn Kelly so believe me when I say she has outdone herself with Dirty Talker. Harlow and Wade have this insane chemistry that explodes from the pages, starting chapter one and going strong throughout the book. And Wade Grady... OMG, that man is just a dirty-sweet dream come true.

Anyway, it’s a fake relationship trope and finally I didn’t get annoyed about it! They didn’t lack communication, at least on Wade’s part, he was upfront most of the times and express what he wanted and needed. Sometimes he also use the Art of seduction to win Harlow over, even the “be the bunny” technique that Axe taught him. Harlow at the other part, need a break from her life, so when Wade needed a fake girlfriend so he could go to his brother’s wedding, she jumped to the occasion. I loved her so much, she was a loving, strong and loyal woman. Which made my heart break with her family struggles. She really didn’t deserve any of that. So it was a good thing that Wade and Harlow found each other, they instantly became friends and a support system for each other. He showed her that there was more than work in life and what family and love really means, and I loved that she protected him over the situation with Kelsey, his crazy “stalker”, who lived at his parents house. But when they finally got together, dammmn it was steamy! The guy has moves and oh my bring me some ice! Another thing that I adored about them, was how they become a power couple, you know the one that fight everything together and overcome any struggles and keeping loving? I love this! I was honestly surprised in the end, those twists!! But also loved! And don’t forget the hockey friends shenanigans! Gosh, this book is a must read!

    Each book in this series somehow manages to top the last and Dirty Talker was no exception! I absolutely loved how both Wade and Harlow went into the fake date so sure that neither would catch feelings for the other, but then of course that changed really fast and it was Wade who decided to peruse a real relationship.

These two despite being so different were so perfect for each other and getting to see them realize it and embrace it was beautiful. And the bonus epilogue was EVERYTHING so if you read this book make sure and read it afterwards!

    this was totally a four star read up until the ending. i was so vibing with Kelsey apologising to Harlow about how she didn’t like her bcos she’s always been in love with Wade and was jealous. so she was kinda petty and rude towards Harlow. i was like yes! no unnecessary girl hate, so we’ve finally progressed past the toxicity between female characters in romance books? ...but apparently we hadn’t 🙂 i knew it was too good to be true. and the moment the end conflict occurred, i thought no. nope. na this was totally a four star read up until the ending. i was so vibing with Kelsey apologising to Harlow about how she didn’t like her bcos she’s always been in love with Wade and was jealous. so she was kinda petty and rude towards Harlow. i was like yes! no unnecessary girl hate, so we’ve finally progressed past the toxicity between female characters in romance books? ...but apparently we hadn’t 🙂 i knew it was too good to be true. and the moment the end conflict occurred, i thought no. nope. nada. i must have jinxed myself. because i just KNEW Kelsey was the orchestrator of the whole conflict/drama and was really hoping i was wrong until it’s confirmed she was. i couldn’t vibe with the whole villainising a female character who’s crime was being in unrequited love with a guy in love with someone else. i think the author should have just kept up the route of... yeah Kelsey was petty and clingy, but also heartbroken and shown that two women can coexist in the same sphere without so much toxicity between them stemming from their mutual feelings for a man. Kelsey’s apology and Harlow’s acceptance should have been where that little plotline ended. but alas... it did not. i hope im making sense as to why this bothered me? bcos other than that, i thought Wade and Harlow were super cute. Wade was kinda swoon worthy ngl. but im not down with petty, toxic woman hate in 2021🤷🏻‍♀️

You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading the series since they all have their unique stories. Wade is desperate for a date to his brother’s wedding. But it’s not only a few hours. It’s a ten-day affair to his hometown. A small-town full of expectations. He just wants to borrow a teammate’s sister, cousin, friend, anyone who won’t be a stage five clinger or take out a kidney in his sleep. He is a good guy but no one is willing to go with his plan until her. A woman who he has only seen a few times without conversation until fate stepped into a club. He knows she is perfect since she doesn’t even want him which is a hit to his ego but good for his plan. He doesn’t have time for distractions so why does he want to cause trouble only a few days in? He is so fucked. Harlow can’t believe she volunteered to be his fake date. It’s so unlike her but she had the time off and wanted to have some fun for once in her life. She should probably remember his name or know what sport the man played first and she was an amazing student. She could do this. Study him. Easy, right? He wasn’t even her type. Tall, hot, abs for days, sweet, and plays hockey? Yeah. That’s not sexy at all. Nope. Not. At. All. Ten days of fun was promised but she had no idea how much she would enjoy him. It’s unexpected. It all is. Two strangers playing their part. Two people learning each other. Two people who need it to end come Monday. Omg! I love Wade and Harlow. They are hilarious, sexy, and so much fun. And yes, unexpected. Of course, there is more to their story than just fun. There is a reason why he truly needed a date. Reason for her to get out of her head. I loved it all. I can’t wait for the next book. I never want this series to end. P.S. Make sure to get the bonus epilogue! Quotes: “If you want to make a point, now seems like a really good time to do it.” I shouldn’t. I know better. But— “You want to pull the pin on this grenade?” She nods, one brow arched. “Think you can handle it?” “Be the bunny, dude.” From the second I peeked into the front room of the suite this morning and found him reading in bed, bare-chested, hair in such sexy disarray it was impossible to see it without imagining my fingers in it, my brain has been off. Twitchy. Twisting every innocent act into a moment rife with dirty potential.

    Dirty Talker is the fourth book in the Slayers Hockey series by the talented Mira Lyn Kelly. I'm loving this series with these sexy hockey players and the women they fall hard for. This is Wade Grady's story! Oh man, I love this man. He's strong, smart, and sexy, but he's also a good guy. He's nice and funny and has a dirty mouth. He's the perfect man. Will whisper sweet nothings in one ear then dirty thoughts in the other. Yes, please!

He's nice and funny and has a dirty mouth. He's the perfect man. Will whisper sweet nothings in one ear then dirty thoughts in the other. Yes, please! Wade is going home for a week for his brother's wedding and he needs a no strings date. Just someone to pretend to be his girlfriend and nothing more. No one will help him find someone, but one night, one just comes to him. Kind of. A few too many cocktails and Harlow agreed to go to the wedding with Wade. But she can't do that. She's not spontaneous and the details are a little fuzzy. When she tries to back out, Wade is actually nice about it and she can't say no. So off she goes. With this sexy hockey player. It will be fine. She can just pretend and that's it. Until she starts to notice his muscles and his smile and his everything. They have to practice touching, that will be easy. They have to get comfortable being near each other. Easy peasy. Wade didn't expect to be attracted to Harlow. There's just something about her buttoned up clothes and her aloofness that he loves. She's not a bunny and it's refreshing. But one real taste of her and he's not sure he's pretending anymore. Will he be able to convince Harlow to try for real or have to let her go? Oh boy! Wade is so swoony! I had to many favorite scenes, but "be the bunny" was on the top of the list. I love how fun he was. How easy going. But he's smart and complicated too! Harlow just need to relax and get a different perspective on her life. She didn't mean to fall for him, but she did! I loved watching them slowly fall for each other and let their guards down and just be with each other. Overall, I loved every word and it's my favorite of the series. Can't wait for more from the Slayers!

    This was another fabulous book by Mira Lyn Kelly. I absolutely loved Harlow and Wade. They were so fabulous and I just loved each of them equally. Wade was just an awesome guy that needed a fake girlfriend to take home for his brother’s wedding, one that would be ok with this being a one and done deal and not looking for a relationship. Harlow was just so great and I absolutely loved her.

But she doesn’t because she realizes she needs a vacation away from her work and this is the perfect thing to distract her. Wade and Harlow are on the same page- she is helping him out as a friend and that neither of them want a relationship, they just don’t have the time for one in their lives. Perfect... or is it? Well these two are just perfect for each other and wow the attraction between them is HOT! I seriously did not want to put this book down. So I didn’t, lol. If you have read and enjoyed the Chicago Slayers series then this book will not disappoint.

    I still have a permanent smile on my face even though I finished this book a while ago. I'm usually into brooding male caracters, so I must admit, I didn't like Wade in the first two chapters.

Since there are so many books with pretend relationship theme, I admit I didn't expect much from the plot. But it was refreshing, original and a very enjoyable read. A true romantic comedy. Wade discussions about his ego cracked me up, and you must read the book so you'll understand what "be the bunny" means. Harlow is such a loving caracter, mature, self respecting, not overly dramatic or jealous . The chemistry between them is sizzling, and I love the fact that the author gave them a chance to know each other, before making them jump in bed together. So we know for a fact, it's not just about the physical attraction. Since this is my first read from this author now I must go and read the former three books in the series.

    A fake relationship romance with witty banter, steamy tension, and a surprising emotional journey hooked me from the first page. A hard-working humble athlete and a smart heroine who doesn't like athletes made for the perfect combination.

    Easily one of my favorite books this year. I fell in love with Wade almost immediately. He had a heart of gold and I loved that he wasn’t near as cocky as his friends. I also loved Harlow. The two characters were so different but ended up helping each other in so many ways. I can’t wait to read more of this series!

    I love all of Mira Lyn Kelly's Slayers Hockey series but I must say this one is my favorite! Wade is such an amazing guy! Harlow agrees to be his fake date to his brothers wedding. Ten days with Wade's family and Harlow realizes all the things she has been missing in her life. Her narrow focus on her career. Harlow never really knew what a loving family looked like and it was a real eye opener. Meanwhile, Wade is just his wonderful self. Such a great love story. So many feelings for these two!

Dirty Talker by Mira Lyn Kelly was all that and more for me. 5 Stars wasn’t enough to represent the terrific characters (both familiar and new) and how well the book was written. If you haven’t read one of Mira Lyn Kelly’s Slayers Hockey books, you can start with Dirty Talker because Ms. Kelly is a super talented and creative writer. Yes, Dirty Talker is book #4 of the Slayers Hockey series, but it’s so well written that one can read as a standalone … BUT another warning needs to be issued. If you start with Dirty Talker, you’re going to want to download all the the other Slayers books … and then her other books … and you’ll fall back into that “I’m READING” snarl to keep everyone away so you can binge! Harlow and Wade have become my favorite Mira Lynn Kelly couple. The pair are very well developed as main characters. Wade is at the tipping point in his NHL career where he’s starting to believe he’s in the league to stay. Harlow has been passed over for promotions despite the deep contributions that she’s making … all at a hurt that is nearly too deep to imagine. They both fall into the fake romance for differing reasons, all of which are quickly thrown out the window as they stop fighting the chemistry and attraction. They both have career challenges, yet differ on family. Wade is neck deep with family and friends who support him, while Harlow has been on her own for as long as she can remember. Dirty Talker is appropriately titled … Wade’s raw honesty and willingness to voice his feelings had me highlighting most of his dialogue. … and another cheer for Ms. Kelly’s writing is that the chapters switch up the POV so you always know what each of my favorite characters are thinking. Nobody writes raw dialogue like Ms Kelly ….and in Dirty Talker she’s taken it to a whole new level. As Harlow starts to think about getting on board with Wade’s powerplay to make her a permanent part of his life, she starts to realize that she’s been missing out on more than she ever knew. “Be the bunny” … Familiar characters from Slayers series are supporting characters in Dirty Talker … and the advice they give to Wade is brilliant … and the scene where he puts it in motion had me checking to make sure my eReader wasn’t on fire! “…because I never f**ing quit. Yea, I got here. But if I let up for even a minute, I wouldn’t be here” and “If you want something work at it. If you don’t get it, work harder” … These two passages really brought home how brilliant Ms. Kelly is at characters. While at first Wade and Harlow seem worlds apart, they both work harder than anyone around them and don’t quit. In a scene that I’ve re-read about 8 times, Wade nearly brought me to my knees when he not only recognized Harlow’s commitment towards her goal, but was willing to sacrifice and support her, even when he was afraid of the outcome I could go on and on and on … but I’ll end this so you can download … with the advice that you immediately start muttering that you really don’t feel well … and then settle in for a fabulous read. I received an ARC. This is my honest review.

    •Dateless Meets Good Girl• This was so good, I absolutely loved everything about Harlow and Wade! Harlow is a sweet, career driven woman looking for approval when she meets the incredibly hot, hockey player Wade, who is seeking a fake girlfriend to bring home for his brothers wedding.

An overall fantastic read, would highly recommend it!

    OMG, I don't know if I have the words to express how awesome Wade and Harlow's book is, but I'll try. I loved that this was a fake relationship story that didn't have me questioning even once after they got out of Wade's truck on day one of ten that yeah, this could totally happen like that. I loved that I was so distracted by the story that when things that were hinted at earlier were finally revealed, I gasped out loud (I may possibly have been in public, but I'll never tell) because I'd complet OMG, I don't know if I have the words to express how awesome Wade and Harlow's book is, but I'll try. I loved that this was a fake relationship story that didn't have me questioning even once after they got out of Wade's truck on day one of ten that yeah, this could totally happen like that. I loved that I was so distracted by the story that when things that were hinted at earlier were finally revealed, I gasped out loud (I may possibly have been in public, but I'll never tell) because I'd completely forgotten about the earlier clues and I ended up just as shocked as Wade had to be by them. I loved that Wade's family and friends were there for Harlow, in a way that no one else had ever been until those ten days began. I loved how freaking good Harlow and Wade are together. They're hot together, of course, but OMG they're also just so darn sweet together. And before they're even a week into their fake relationship, each is more than willing to throw down in order to show their support of the other. So. Good. Together. I loved that the book's "black moment" wasn't one that threatened their relationship, not really. Things looked a little scary for a minute or two there, but there was absolutely nothing that caused either of them to be truly worried about the solidity of their relationship. Not once they managed to re-connect with each other, anyway. And that made my heart so darn happy. And I loved that "one month later" scene when Harlow finally learned to appreciate dating a guy who plays hockey. Pure. Gold. I absolutely can't wait until the next book in the series comes out, though I dare Ms Kelly to give me a better pairing than these two. Go ahead, I'll wait. (I can't promise that I'll be doing it patiently, though! ;)) Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Be the Bunny!? Lol! Super sweet hero Wade and tough sweetheart Harlow are the newest couple in Slayers hockey franchise. This is a fake relationship to love trope and done incredibly well!! I have loved all the Slayers stories with Vaughn being my favorite so far, but I’m afraid that he may have been replaced with Wade. The feels in this story are absolutely incredible - almost the whole way thru the entire book! There are feels, lots of laughs, grins at the sweetness and character development wi Be the Bunny!? Lol! Super sweet hero Wade and tough sweetheart Harlow are the newest couple in Slayers hockey franchise. This is a fake relationship to love trope and done incredibly well!! I have loved all the Slayers stories with Vaughn being my favorite so far, but I’m afraid that he may have been replaced with Wade. The feels in this story are absolutely incredible - almost the whole way thru the entire book! There are feels, lots of laughs, grins at the sweetness and character development with each character growing and becoming their best self. There’s no real drama between the main characters, though there is some drama with characters associated with each of them. I just found myself grinning the entire time I read this! If you’re looking for a feel good story, light on drama but heavy on hawt and sweet, this is for you! Update- read it again and STILL loved it! 💖 Wade needs a fake relationship to take home for his brother’s wedding. You find out why when he gets home, it was not what I expected. Wade meets Harlow on one of her worst days ever. She is a workaholic with no time for anything, but on this bad day of hers, a bit of Wade’s charm and a few martinis, she agrees to take a break from her life. The best part of that is the next day when she doesn’t recognize who she has promised to spend a week with! She is so unimpressed with Wade and his celebrity status, and he wants her to like him, that he goes to a buddy for help. The buddy kinda bows him for and tells him to ‘be a bunny’. Wade trying to bring out his inner puck bunny was hilarious and cute at the same time! The two become good friends and grow closer in a short time and surprisingly, it is Wade who wants more, and not just physical. They get their HEA with more friendship, laughs and shmexy times! There was only one slight gripe that I have and that is with the title. I think that for a title of Dirty Talker, there should be more dirty talking but this is minor gripe in the grand scheme of everything. I just loved this story and look forward to re-reading it soon! Don’t miss Harlow and Wade’s story - it would be a shame! Bravo Ms. Kelly and can’t wait for more Slayers!

She's tired of always being the one to say no to the fun she needs and deserves. When she takes on a project, she all the way in. She does her research, learns her facts, she is a perfectionist and very competitive. The only problem she has is learning how to relax, let go of some of her rigidness and handle a little simple PDA. Never one to turn down a challenge or do things half way, she is determined to make this act look perfect. Maybe a little too perfect. This deserves more than just star ratings, it gets a 5 swoons and a 'Hell Yeah!' rating from me!!

The alpha male falling for the strong and sassy female heroine and turning himself inside out just to have a shot with her is exactly the type of read that makes my heart turn into a warm, liquid mess. I’ve been waiting for a new Mira Lyn Kelly novel for what seems like forever (in reality, it’s only been six months since Dirty Rebound was published), so when the ARC for Dirty Talker hit my email, I was read Over the last year, the hockey romance genre has become, quite simply, my favorite genre. The alpha male falling for the strong and sassy female heroine and turning himself inside out just to have a shot with her is exactly the type of read that makes my heart turn into a warm, liquid mess. I’ve been waiting for a new Mira Lyn Kelly novel for what seems like forever (in reality, it’s only been six months since Dirty Rebound was published), so when the ARC for Dirty Talker hit my email, I was ready to call in sick to work and spend the day getting to know Wade Grady and his love interest, Harlow Richards. Admittedly, I was ready for the same formula I’ve come to know and love from Kelly, who is the author who sucked me into the hot AF world of hockey romance novels. While Kelly writes stories that I absolutely get lost in, I was so thoroughly surprised by Dirty Talker. Wade and Harlow’s story was not what I expected. First, while it is barely touched on in the beginning, I believe this is the first book from Kelly that I have read where the heroine is of mixed race. It wasn’t in your face, but it was only subtly hinted at until Harlow’s full background story was revealed about two-thirds of the way through. I suspect this was due to Harlow herself, who keeps so many things about herself from Wade, because she just doesn’t trust anyone, or even herself, to be able to handle or look at her situation exactly how it is. There’s not a lot that Harlow can control about her relationship with her family, so keeping her feelings and her family history close to the vest is one way she can control her world. Second, Wade is NOT the typical Chicago Slayers hockey player. In the previous books, most of the players have had colorful pasts with women, behaviors or situations that they really have to overcome to be able to win the girl of their dreams. Wade, while having a past that he ultimately does have to deal with, it has nothing to do with the puck bunnies we have crossed paths with in the other novels. He really IS a good guy, as he keeps reminding everyone as he tries to secure a fake date for his brother’s wedding. It’s a different and welcome alternative spin in the Slayers Hockey series, the way Wade knows immediately what he wants from Harlow and never waivers. The way he pursues her, knowing that she has laid down the law about their fake relationship staying fake, but steadfast in how he knows that what he feels for her has the potential to be real… Kelly writes sweet yet demanding book boyfriends like no other author I’ve read before. The relationships she builds make me yearn for that kind of intimacy – that alpha male with a heart of gold, who just knows how to treat  a woman, who makes it his priority to make his woman feel loved and cared for, who sees and adores his woman for more than what she simply presents to world and instead sees to the deepest corners where she hides her most vulnerable self. Based on the title, Dirty Talker, I was expecting a scorching hot read – and it was, but not in the way I thought it would be. The tether that exists between Wade and Harlow, the story that we as the reader get to glimpse as it’s happening, is not about the dirty talking Wade does in Harlow’s ear (although that is VERY hot, indeed), but more about the slow burn of a relationship that neither character thought was possible. Both Wade and Harlow were simply existing, focusing on their careers while sacrificing personal relationships and the possibility of real love. By the end of this book, they have both grabbed ahold of the possibilities and have chucked merely existing for actual living. And isn’t that what we should all be doing? Living instead of just existing? Dirty Talker was a five-star read, and another visit to the Slayers Hockey world that I know I’ll be enjoying for years to come.
