Dear Author's Jane reviews Talk Me Down by Victoria Dahl

Ben is one of the most fun, most adorable, but very sexy heroes I’ve read in a long time. He blushes! More than once! But it doesn’t detract from his manliness in anyway.

She happy to be turned on, and to turn other people on as well. More power to her.(read more)

Amazing what a talented writer can do with a fairly simple idea, and the one behind Talk Me Down is simple indeed: a bestselling erotic-fiction writer returns to her hometown to check out the guy who inspired her entire career. I picked it up, expecting nothing more than scene after steamy scene and very little story in between. I was wrong. Victoria Dahl's debut contemporary novel is hot and refreshing and great fun to read. (read more)
