Notorious mean girl Dixie Davis is back in town and it's payback time. Literally. Dixie is flat broke and her best-make that only-friend, Landon, is throwing her a lifeline from the Great Beyond. Dixie stands to inherit his business…if she meets a few conditions:
She's got to live in Landon's mansion.
With her gorgeous ex-fiancé, Caine Donovan.
Who could also inherit the b...more
I was so tempted to give this 1 or 2 stars but in the end I liked the h too much to do it. Almost everyone else in this book, including the H, can go fuck themselves btw.
This book is basically about a reformed-mean-girl who returns to her small town for her best friend's funeral, to find that the town is very unwilling to forgive or forget the girl she used to be, despite ample evidence of the woman she now is. The h is paint ...more
I found myself laughing a lot at the antics between Caine and Dixie to win the competition, but I was also angry and sad and a whole array of feelings towards Dixie, her personal growth and the life she leads now. It sucks when you're trying to redeem yourself ...more

First Thought when Finished: Talk Dirty to Me by Dakota Cassidy made me cry, laugh, and cheer! It was really enjoyable!
Story Thoughts: This was such a unique setting for a contemporary romance but it really worked. I thought the phone sex setting was perfect way for these two characters to work things out. Plus, it lead to some d ...more
The heroine used to be a mean girl and when she was involved with the hero fell into her bad ways and made a bet that made her lose him. Now ten years later her best friend is dead, she is broke, her life still in shambles and she comes back home to face her town and love again and battle it out for a phone sex company. I enjoyed reading about a mean girl and liked Caine a lot.
I am so happy I decided to pick up Cassidy's newest book in her upcoming series. Talk Dirty To Me was like a huge glass of iced tea on a hot, summer day. It has a little bit of everything I relish in a book--a sexy leading man, a sassy heroine who is hiding her vulnerable heart, southern humor that has me giggling aloud (and sometimes inappropriately), and moments that have me sobbing and resembling Tammy Faye Baker...that is, if I wore mascara and shellacked a ton of ma ...more
This book is like a sweet glass of tea on a hot summer day. A warm kitten to cuddle on a cool fall eve. A hot chocolate on a winter night. A warm peach pie with ice cream in the spring. This is comfort reading, good warm and fuzzy for the heart. No matter what the title may suggest, LOL.
Three friends from small town America are driven apart by life, work and drama-rajas are reconnected when one of the trio dies, Landon. He sets up his estate to tie his other two estranged friends ...more

Review copy provided for an honest review
I have been a huge fan of Dakota Cassidy’s paranormal series for years. When I heard she had a new contemporary series in the works I couldn’t wait to dig into them. In her thrilling Plum Orchard series Ms. Cassidy has transported her readers right into the heart of this charming small town.
Before I dig too far into this review let me make mention of the prequel book to this series. Talk This W ...more
DNF at 41%
I was very curious to see how the phone sex element was going to play out between the ex-fiancés. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to find out since I DNF the book at 41%.
The set up was interesting enough, however the first sex phone call doesn’t take place until 38% into the book. The motivational texts sent by Landon beyond the grave were great. I just never liked Dixie’s character. She was a bitch in high school and though she kept talking about turning ...more
I'm going to be honest- I didn't want to love this book because I always thought people write glowing reviews just because they were given a book to review. (This is my first.) Well, I DID love the book. Oops! I even debated giving the book 4 stars just because I was given the book in exchange for a review. But in the end, I had to give it what I thought it deserved- 5 stars.
This is a very fun book. The first chapter did start off slow and wo ...more
This was my first Dakota Cassidy read, and I smiled, snickered, snorted, laughed, sighed, and yes I even cried. I loved Dixie, she was bada$$ with her feisty banter. She came back to the hometown that she left years ago for the funeral of her best friend, knowing she would have to face the loss and regrets from her past. Knowing that she would never live down her reputation as the town's most notorious 'Mean Girl'. Knowing that she would have to fa ...more
Caine and Dixie must compete to win their departed friend's phone sex business by seeing who can rack up the most customers. I loved the competition, and the scenes when Dixie is trying out her new career were comedy gold. The depiction of small town southern life was fun, and I really can't wait to read ...more
Dakota Cassidy NEVER fails to make me fall in love. She is a master at combining snarky, sassy, loveable, characters. Characters that make your heart hurt, then smile. Characters that you truly want to be friends with. And stories that have everything I love - stories that make me laugh and cry all within 100+ pages.
This series is going to be amazing, I'm sure of it! I can't wait for more!

Reformed mean girl Dixie would rather be anywhere than in Plum Orchard. It has been ten years since she last set foot in her hometown, and the only thing that could drag her back was the death of her beloved best friend, Landon. The last time Dixie was in town was the night of her engagement party, which went up in smoke, literally. Dixie was embarrassed in front of the whole town as her mean shenanigans were exposed, and sh ...more
Dixie has returned home under unfortunate circumstances and is offered a rare opportunity (in the form of a competition) that could right some of her wrongdoings. Also returning home is Cane who has lesson( ...more
On the surface and given the premise, I feel like I should have loved this book, but, holy crap, was this the struggle of the century. I was trying to continue on in the hopes that it would get better and I found myself dreading every page I read because it was just that boring. This was another one of those times that I can’t pinpoint anything I hated. It was more that I couldn’t bring myself to care about the characters or the plot.
There was some truly annoying plot quirks, but nonetheless, I was completely charmed.
I’m glad I took the chance and bought the first three books.
