Excerpt:I slide in and search for any sign of the spunky brunette who’s always on my case. She’s nowhere to be found, so I tiptoe further back, noticing to my dismay the cupcake case empty. A thud echoes throughout the quiet space. “Fuck!” There’s some more grumbling I can’t make out and then, “Where the hell is it? Stupid, Ava, so stupid. Why did you ever think you could do this?” I should let her know I’m here. “Hello? Yes. This is Ava Pearson from Mad Batter.” Another pause. “My power just went out. Yeah. I don’t know where a fuse box is.” The flashlight moves and shines right past me. You’re being a dick. Let her know you’re here and help her my inner self keeps repeating. I click the green button on my phone again. “Ugh. Hold on a second.” The lighted phone pulls away from her face, she presses ignore. “Ugh, asshole.” Then places it back to her cheek. “Sorry, where would I find the fuse box?” “My guess is back in the storage room,” I say. She jumps so far back, she trips over something and falls, her phone scattering along the floor. I bend down and pick it up. “Ma’am. Ma’am.” Frank’s never sounded so scared. “Hey, Frank. It’s Dane. No, I got it no need for the fire department to come down. Yeah, I saw from across the street. We’ll call back if we need you guys. Yeah, see you on Trivia night.” I click the red button and turn on the flashlight on her phone. She’s getting to her feet, brushing off her ass after tripping on a bag of flour. “Here.” I hold my hand out for her, but she refuses to take it. “I’m fine. Knocking would be the polite thing to do.” She blocks the light from the flashlight with her arm and I lower it a little. “Well, I’m an asshole so you shouldn’t expect much.” I shrug, taking her phone with me into the storage room. “You don’t have to help me. I’m sure the fire department would be willing.” She rambles as she follows me. “They should be available for actual fires.” “I imagine fires are like crimes in this town—almost nonexistent.” I turn around, flashing the light toward my face so she can see me. “You’d be wrong then. Forest fires.” I tap my head and all I hear is her huff. “You think you’re so smart.” She’s embarrassed, I get it, so I don’t rub in the fact I am fucking smart. “Would you rather me not know how to fix your breaker?” She hems and haws for a second. “I don’t understand. I was in the middle of making a huge batch of frosting and then total darkness.” “Was that your way of asking me for help?” I open up the box, purposely not touching any of the breakers. “I didn’t know I had to ask, since you took upon yourself to sneak into my shop, scare the crap out of me and then walk to the storage room.” “And I haven’t even told you to keep your doors locked when you’re closed yet. But usually, people say please and thank you when they need a favor.” I give her a wide, condescending smile just to piss her off a little more. “I’m not most people.” I nod. “Agreed, but I have to believe that Vic taught you manners.” “Seriously, you have my hands tied and you’re going to play this game?” I step closer to her, the firmness of her breasts now pushing against my chest. Damn, she feels good and I don’t even have a hand on her. “I can tie you up and play games if you like.” I raise a brow. “Ugh. No. I’m not interested in your games.” She says no with those plump lips of hers, but it doesn’t escape me that she’s still pressed up against me. “I thought we played pretty nice together. No?” All I’m able to hear in the darkness is her unsteady breathing—in and out as though it’s a struggle. “I really need to finish this cake so that I can maybe get three hours sleep tonight.” Her voice is so low and tense. She’s stressed and I’m only adding to that state. “Say please and it’s yours.” “Please, Dane.” She even includes my name and by some small miracle, she didn’t even use a sarcastic tone. I click the button and the lights flicker on. Her eyes widen and a genuine smile tugs at her mouth like I just pulled her up on my horse and rode us away from the monsters. That smile could be addicting. If you were a different type of guy.

Title: Dirty Talker
Author: Piper Rayne
Probably one of my favorite books from Piper Ryane so far and i can't believe it was Dane who took it away. We all remember Dan from Real Deal (that is, of course if you've read it) and that man absolutely took the douche canoe prize without any troubles, trust me. I didn't like him and i sure as heck didn't want to like him - like at all. There was just something about him that rubbed me the wrong way.
So when i picked up this book, i was nervous. I didn't want to hate this man during the entire time i read his story. But you know how they say 'don't judge a book by its cover'? i was so very wrong about Dane - oh, he's very much arrogant and cocky, but there's a reason for his ways and there's more to him than meets the eye. Then i fell in love with this man; with all of the annoying parts, the good ones and even the cringe worthy ones. In true Piper Rayne fashion, i laughed and tumbled down that rabbit hole all over again. I can't wait to read more form this series and will probably be re-reading this series in the mean time.
