Some things are sexier the second time around.
Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art...all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna Macmillan—his biggest mistake—walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts.
Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she'd once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever...and this Cal is all man.
Cal may have no intention of letting Jenna in, but she's always been his light, and it's getting harder to stay all alone in the dark. When a surprise from the past changes everything, Cal and Jenna must decide if their connection should be left alone, or if it's exactly what they need for the future of their dreams.
I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
WARNING: Reader may have Dirty Thoughts after reading.
Confession: I did not know that Dirty Thoughts, well the series actually, focus on non other than Max’s older brothers. Granted, everything was spelled out for me but the two didn’t connect. At all. >.<
Megan has quickly become one of my favorite authors. With every book of hers that I read, I fall more and more in love with her writing and ability to create such fun, unique characters and a story that is realistic and relatable.
Not to mention, second chance romances are becoming my THING, too!
Cal is probably one of the most stubborn, brooding but loving and kind-hearted men in fiction I have read about in a while. There were times when I was SCREAMING at him in the inside, because his stubbornness knows no bounds. But I truly felt for the guy – because he honest to goodness felt like he was tapped out and doing the right thing when it came to Jenna and rekindling their relationship.
Jenna has a stubborn streak of her own and I loved everything that she did for Cal after Asher shows up. She goes to great lengths to help out, all the while, the situation tearing her apart inside knowing that THIS could have been her life. Yet, as much as she helped out and was beyond patient, she was feisty and stood her ground too.
Now these two together? Hot, Hot HOT.. The spark between these two is obvious from the first encounter and I could not get enough of them together. The banter and camaraderie are natural and the sexual tension was off the charts. Sure, both have different ideas in mind for what they want for their future, but that is where Asher and his situation comes in and Cal is forced to OPEN HIS DAMN EYES.
I would also like to mention how much I love the love in this family. It’s not perfect – but the love between them all is strong and I adore them all. Jack doesn’t seem so scary anymore, either. 😉
Overall – I loved Dirty Thoughts. It’s no surprise this one is on the favorites list. Sexy, fun and laugh out loud funny, Dirty Thoughts is not to be missed! I highly recommend it!
