When the one you shouldn't want is the one you can't resist...
Brent Payton works hard, plays hard, and has earned his ladies’ man reputation. But he’s more than just a good time, even though no one seems to see it. Until a gorgeous brunette with knockout curves and big, thoughtful eyes walks into his family’s garage and makes Brent want more.
Ivy Dawn and her sister are done with men, all of them. They’ve uprooted their lives too many times on account of the opposite sex, but that’s over now. The plan seems easy until a sexy, dirty-taking mechanic bursts in Ivy’s life and shakes everything up.
Brent can’t resist the one person who sees past his devil-may-care façade, and Ivy finds it harder and harder to deny how happy he makes her. But she has secrets of her own and when the truth comes out, she must decide if she’ll run again or if she’ll take a chance on forever.

One Line: Brent was such a sweetheart, I loved him.
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
Well, Megan, you’ve done it. You’ve gone and created a book and character I can’t help but love. Brent was awesome and I really enjoyed reading Dirty Talk. I was worried when I read Dirty Thoughts, since I didn’t warm up to like everyone else. But I was optimistic and I’m glad I gave this series another shot. I could already tell Brent would be someone that I’d like based on what little I saw of him from the first book. I just didn’t expect to love him so much. The romance was sweet and had some very touching moments. Ivy and Brent fit together very nicely and I really enjoyed watching them fall in love.
Brent is known as the jokester, the goof-off, the one you don’t take seriously. Little does everyone know that he’s actually a very grounded and dedicated guy. I loved getting to know Brent below the surface. He has dreams and aspirations that are great and he has the skills and heart to do it. He’s so much more than what he shows others, even his family, and it pained me to see how no one saw it.
Brent and Ivy are a great couple. He was just the kind of guy she needed. Sure, he was a playboy, “sleeping around” kind of guy before meeting Ivy, but you could tell that he was the kind of guy who was just waiting for “the one”, whether he knew it himself or not. Their relationship is very endearing and I was a sucker for Brent’s scenes with Violet, a very important person in Ivy’s life. What really bugged me about Megan’s first book in this series was actually one of the things I loved in this book. It all goes to show you it’s how you use certain tools in a book that make it work or not.
I really liked how there was a good balance of a storyline for Brent and Ivy apart, a sweet romance when they were together, and also a few steamy scenes thrown in for good measure. Megan really impressed me with this book and I’m looking forward to reading more from her.
