I don't think that a book has ever surprised me but I was completely surprised by TALK TO ME. TALK TO ME is Cassandra Carr's debut novel and it packs a wallop. This book was packed full of emotion, playfulness, and sexiness.
I like the author love hockey and was intrigued how a hockey player goes from playing to radio host. Drew Milan had to leave the game he loved so much due to injuries and found a job as a radio host. He has been through many producers so he was a little wary about a female producer. All those thoughts were put away once he started working with Jamie. She was a great producer but even better to look at for a couple of hours. Jamie, on the other hand, knew the moment that she met Drew that she was in trouble. She had been played before in relationships and didn't want to be played with Drew.
Well, fate has a way of messing up their plans. I just couldn't get enough of Jamie and Drew. Jamie with all of her insecurities; and Drew with his inability to walk away from her. The sex was beyond combustible and very frequent but highly necessary to the story. The plotting and pacing were great, too. It never slowed down and there weren't unnecessary secondary characters to complicate the story. At times, I really felt like I was part of the story; watching it unfold in the shadows. I felt the emotions that Jamie and Drew were going through and their thought processes.
I highly recommend TALK TO ME for anyone that wants to read a super sexy but thought provoking book about insecurities and finding love when you thought you wouldn't love again.
Great job, Cassandra and I look forward to more of her work.
Radio producer Jamie MacMahon is in over her head with ex-hockey player-turned host Drew Milan. She’s attracted to the man who earned the nickname “the Beast” during his playing days from the moment they meet, but he’s her boss and she loves her new job. She’s made plenty of mistakes with men and loathes the thought of being yet another plaything for Drew, a man who sleeps with women but doesn’t date them.
Drew doesn’t want to lose a great producer and knows Jamie deserves a real relationship, but can’t stay away from the sizzling chemistry they create every time they’re together. Jamie’s insecurities and the very real prospect of having to leave a great job if this thing doesn’t work out clash hard with Drew’s fears about opening his heart and the possibility of losing his first competent producer. Nothing's going to get resolved if one of them won't say it: "Come on, baby, talk to me."
