Talk Me Down should be titled Talk Dirty to Me, and that’s not just because I’m a big Poison fan, either. Whew! Hot, hot hot! I really enjoyed this story about a cop—my favorite hero—and an erotic romance writer. He was her brother’s best friend while growing up, and she was too young for him. She’s had a crush on him for years, and has even written one of her novels with him as the hero. She’s come back to town permanently, and has pretty much blew his socks off. However, she convenien...more
When he put his hands on his hips, she could see his big gun, and not the big gun she was interested in, either.
And so starts my most wonderful adventure into Hornyland. That’s right folks. Don’t miss this chance for nothing in the world! This book is a must-read!
*sarcasm ends here*
What. The. F*ck.
Another book involving a horny city girl and a pansy village guy. Nothing new to see here. No humor, no story, no character development. Only stupidity thrown around in order to fill i...more
Warning : This book may cause smiles, giggling, laughing, and/or snorting.
Talk Me Down was a good time. The story was basic, the mystery was easily solved, and I doubt I'll remember much else about the book other than the fact that it was cute, funny, and sexy.
Sometimes that's all I need, especially after reading one extremely emotional book, one lengthy high fantasy, and a book with characters who made me want to sit in a corn...more
How quickly things go from “The Shit” to some shit.
I’ve been reading Everything I Know About Love I Learned from Romance Novels, gleefully finding new romance authors to fall in love with. When the book mentioned Talk Me Down by Victoria Dahl, I immediately went to download a sample. The sample? Wonderful! Funny and sexy and cute. The plotline, the beginning and the author’s voice were all things that really intrigued me about this book. So I went and did my normal silly thing: I bought more t

Contemp romance is usually not my thing. But, surprisingly i was immediately won over by this one.

The story is about Molly Jennings, a girl returning to her hometown after being away for 10 years, and Ben Lawson, the local Police Chief.
This story had a little bit of everything. There was an AMAZING love story, friggn AWESOME/HOT sex scenes, a creepy ex-boyfriend (who was also stalking Molly), a BIG secret that co...more

Molly has moved back to her hometown to escape an ex-boyfriend who is ruining her life and sort of stalking her. She has a secret career and no one, not even her family, knows what she does. She immediately runs into her older brother's best friend, the police chief, who she's had an infatuation with for years. Things move pretty quickly from there. They get hot and heavy right away,...more
Funny, enjoyable read with amazingly hot steamy scenes and a hero to die for.
The only thing stopping me from giving it a higher rating was the frustration I had for the heroine, Molly, and her flightiness, immaturity and complete lack of common sense. She objectified Ben horribly and whilst I understood the issues she had and how they defined her actions, I really just wanted to give her a good slap in the face.
However, I did enjoy her banter and sass... but not enough to warrant me ac...more
Molly moves back to her hometown after being away for 10 years and meets back up with Ben who she had teenage hot fantasies about.
Molly is refreshingly written as sexually confident, funny and easy to connect with. I actually laughed out loud reading this book. The scene where Molly puts on a seductive look and starts walking towards him only to distract him by the sound of her bunny slippers slapping against the floor was the funniest scene I've read in a book in a long time.
Worst Line: "Those years in the junior-high trombone section had paid off for him. Finger, slide. Finger, slide."
Synopsis:Holly and Ben have liked each other for over a decade. Ben is the muse for Molly's erotica-writing career, and Ben never stopped thinking about his best-friend's little sister--even after she spent years in the big city. When strange happenings and a potential stalker push Molly to return to her childhood home, she...more
I think you're cute. And I am single. But it's a small town, you know? Too complicated.
It's not complicated. I promise you I'm a simple girl.
I'm just Molly Jennings, all grown up. And hopefully charming as hell.
I like my men as smooth and perfumed as a harem girl!
I wanted you even when I shouldn't have.
It wouldn't matter if I did hate this. I couldn't s...more
Delightful chick-lit erotica with some nice twists. The idea of an erotic novel within an erotic novel was fun, but I wonder if real authors of erotica go to such lengths to hide their profession from friends and family.

Before pointing out the negatives of this book, I'll expose the positives. I loved how Dahl wrote from both perspectives throughout the whole story, as in from the eyes of Molly AND Ben(the love interest). I enjoyed seeing and feeling the emotions both had towards each other, and it was definitely an added bonus when I found out Dahl...more
