Erica Lynn - you are my new hero. You gave us a smart, sexy, funny, REAL female. You gave us a swoony, strong, dirty talking male. And you gave us a sexy AF story. Like over the top sexy...squirming in your seat hot!! All of that together makes one amazing little book. I don't know about you guys, but sometimes when I read about schmexy hot loving, I feel like a bit of a creeper and little bit like a dirty pervert. But oh no, not with Erica Lynn. All I felt was hot and bothered because this woma ...more

This is one fun-loving friends to lovers novella that can be read in one sitting. For the past two years, Jessa has been working on building her blog, Dirty Words, and is finally getting the recognition she deserves. She has been invited to participate in a radio show to reach a much broader audience. When she arrives for her first meeting with the audience, she decides to change her entire presentation as her best friend lent her an iPad containing a plethora of romance novels. Not be

This was a hot, quick read! It was a friends to lovers story. Dylan has had feelings for Jessa for over a year. She didn’t want to mess up their friendship but while on a work trip together and a bit of jealousy, they give in to their desires. I loved the dirty talk! The title was so fitting! I really enjoyed this book! 💋

I can say with certainty that this book is indeed a very dirty book. I love it! The whole concept of this short story was wonderfully executed. I love the idea of experimenting with the unknown. It shows you should never "knock it until you've tried it". On to the good stuff. Sexy with a capital S. Hot. Smoking. I think you get my point. Brace yourselves, this is a small but, oh so BIG, experience you don't want to mix. WARNING: Turn the AC up, turn on a fan.......have your significant other ava ...more

Dirty Words is a fun romp into not just the Friends to Lovers trope, but just in general! Jessa and Dylan are easy characters to fall in love with, as they figure out what they want.

Jessa has a successful blog, Dirty Words, that she's translated into a radio show. She's getting a huge opportunity at a festival to reach an even broader audience. When her friend slips her iPad full of smut, oh romance novels, Jessa wants to roll her eyes back in her head. Until she actually tries a couple. One of

Dirty Words by Erica Woods is hands down one of the best book I have read this year. This book is so good and so hot. I loved it and could not put it down. This is the story of Jessa and Dylan. Jessa has a radio show called Dirty Words to help educate other about sexual health. Dylan works for her and is her best friend. Dylan is in love with Jessa and wants to take their relationship to the next step but Jessa keeps fighting it, even though she is in love with him too, because she doesn't want ...more

MJessa and Dylan are great friends and work together and one night they almost take their friendship to the next level and because of one forgotten thing it doesn’t happen. Jessa is a radio host for her show Dirty Words and she gives sexual advice only if she’d take her own advice and just go for it! A trip, jealousy, and giving in to your desires can only lead to something wonderful especially when you realize that your best friend fe ...more

Such a delightful and steamy short read. I liked the whole setup with the concept of Jessa's mission of sexual education.
Both Jessa and Dylan were great characters. They had a wonderful friendship going on so I could totally understand why Jessa was hesitant to move their relationship to a completely different path. However their chemistry was off the charts so it was a losing battle from the start.
With a HFN ending hopefully there will be more Jessa and Dylan in the future.

I read this book when it was part of the Love Me Hard box set and it is a steamy story.

Dylan and Jessa are friends and co-workers however Dylan has wanted to take their relationship to the next level but Jessa wants things to remain status quo as she worries about what would happen if it doesn’t work. A business trip changes everything but what happens when they return to real life?

I loved how Dylan was so sure of what he wanted and wasn’t about to be deterred by Jessa’s doubts.

This was a GREAT story. Coworkers have been friends for over a year, but he wants more and she is not wanting to chance their relationship. The chemistry won't leave them alone once the line gets fuzzy. They are seriously hot once they get started. So seriously hot. I absolutely love this story. Re-reading is necessary for me. ...more

This is a standalone so obviously it doesn't end in a cliffhanger, but I still swiped the hell out of my kindle trying to make more appear. I loved these characters--especially Dylan. I need more of him!!! Erica Lynn? Is this thing on? Are you hearing me? Dylan Masters is book boyfriend yumminess. Sexy, subtle, and pining. 😍😍😍 #swoon MORE PLEASE. ...more

A sexy, quick read, Dirty Words is full of curiosity and excitement as two friends decide the pros and cons of upgrading their relationship to include sex.

I had fun reading this, and definitely recommend it.

I first read Dirty Words when it was part of the Love Me Hard boxed set. I fell in love with Jessa and Dylan at the time and cannot wait for more from this series. What follows is the review I left for the story on the Love Me Hard boxed set listing.

I loved Jessa and Dylan! They were the cutest while also being sexy. Their story was a short one. I'd love it if this would become a prequel and then a full story written that explores what happens after the weekend. I want more of Jessa and Dylan!

Fresh, sexy, friends to lovers work novella

Erica Lynn's Dirty Words was a short fun read.
Jessa and Dylan have incredible chemistry which they've tried to resist. When they finally give into their feelings the sexual encounter is absolutely explosive. The subplot of their job and work conference moved the story along in a very smart sexy manner. Though short this was a very satisfying read. I'd love to see more of Jessa and Dylan.
I received an advance reader copy.

This book was hot and steamy awesome book. Erica Lynn is an amazing writer. She is not afraid to tackle the hard subjects. Dirty Words is a sex talk show. Jessa and Dylan are best friends and explore more of each other on the idea for research but finally let their guard down to let their love surface and grow from friends to lovers.

This was a quick and very HOT read!

She is a blogger turned radio personality who has the hots for her co-worker and he feels the same for her. At the Christmas party they almost get it on, but he realizes he forgot the condom! When they are out of town at a weekend conference, things take a decidedly wicked turn...I read this book as an ARC and this is my honest review.

Erica Lynn does it again!

Another in a long line of excellent (and by excellent, I mean panty melting) books by Erica. The characters are more than relatable, and draw you in from page one. Dyllen is my new book boyfriend. Seriously. Anxiously awaiting more of his and Jessa's story.

Beautiful, short and hot novella about friends to lovers. I loved Jessa and Dylan, especially Dylan and how patient he was with Jessa and never left the idea to be with her. I truly hope so that we will read more about Jessa and Dylan in the future.
