Party girls.
Platinum blondes.
Zero expectations.
I used to think that if you could combine all three into one female, you’d have the perfect woman. The other guys in the Single Dads Club razz me for wearing the crown of the forever bachelor. The one who’ll be in his seventies chasing down young hotties in his wheelchair.
Then why the hell does Ava Pearson—an outdoorsy girl, a brunette, and a woman who screams stability and responsibility—seem to be the only woman on my mind lately?
Especially when I’ve got enough obligations without adding any complications to the mix—my son, my bar…well, that’s about it. But that’s enough for a guy like me.
It’s the cupcakes. It’s gotta be the cupcakes she bakes that keep me coming back for more. After all, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right? Well, it’s apparently a direct target to his dick, too.
Did I forget to mention that she’s my buddy’s daughter…another member’s daughter?
Ava might say she can handle being friends-with-benefits, but I’m not sure she can. Unfortunately for her I’m too selfish of a prick to care—until I do.

My thoughts:

I sort of feel like a broken record with this line but, this was my first Piper Rayne book but it definitely won't be the last one I read from the duo! They sort of won me over with the fun note from Dane at the beginning of the ARC - I knew that if nothing else, I'd get a few good chuckles out of the book - and I was so right! I actually didn't like Dane in the beginning - I love a dirty talking Alpha more than just about anything, but he was just a bit too full of himself for me. But I'm a sucker for a single dad and his relationship with Toby was too sweet and as the story went along and I got to learn more about him, I could definitely see his appeal. I also loved Ava - so feisty and independent. I think it may have helped that I read this on the heels of a dud of a "best friend's daughter/daddy's best friend" book and this did wonders in restoring the trope to its proper place as on of my faves (idk why I like them so much, I NEVER saw any of my dad's friends as potential love interests). I'm looking forward to going back to read Single Dads Club #1 (while it's not necessary to read to enjoy this book, I think it will help give some insight into the dynamics of the group and the backstory on some of the side characters), as well as Piper Rayne's Modern Love series (I believe there's some character crossover from The Bartender). I give Dirty Talker 4 out of 5 wine glasses.

“Ahh! I knew Dane would end up being my favorite of this series...and there is still another book to go! … I FLOVED this book!” ~Goodreads Review (Angela)
“What a sweet, sweet second installment of the Single Dads Series. Don't deny your sweet tooth and take a bite out of this! Well done ladies, well done!” ~Goodreads Review (Chloe)

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
