I read Sweet Talk by S.L. Scott when it first came out and loved it. It was sweet, charming and one of the best second chance romances I have read. It is still one of my top favorite reads by her.
I loved Danny Weston. He was everything. So I had high expectations when I listened to the audio version. I have come to love audiobooks as my favorite form to re-read all my favorite books. As soon as I heard Eric Rolan as Danny, I knew he was Danny. He was perfect! He brought Danny to life for me.
Kylie Stewart was also perfect as Reese Carmichael. She brought Reese to life. She was able to bring out both Reese’s confidence and insecurities. And the chemistry was there between them throughout the entire narration. I felt everything they went through.
The audio of Sweet Talk was perfection. I loved the duo narration. Kylie and Eric were Danny and Reese. I was right back in their lives and loved every moment of it. I laughed and cried. If you have not met Reese and Danny, here is your chance! The narration is spot on!
5 amazing stars!
I have read several of S.L. Scott’s books at this point and at the top of my list is Johnny Outlaw from The Hard to Resist series. I love him. Now she gives us Danny’s story, whom I loved from The Resistance series, but who now gets his story and what a story it is. Quick side note, this is a standalone, though Danny does appear is some of the Hard to Resist series, you do not need to read them before reading Danny’s story. But, they are worth the read as well.Back to Danny. Danny Weston is on top of the world he created for himself. For 10 years he has built the life he wanted. His brand, himself, is well known and sought after, and he could not be happier. Or so he thought.Danny’s is now writing his own ticket, looking at all options available and what the future has in store for him. Lately he feels like something is missing, but he can’t quite place what is missing. Then he gets the opportunity of a lifetime, but not without cost.Reese Carmichael once walked away from a once in a lifetime love. And every day she questioned that choice. For ten years she worked hard to obtain the future she thought she wanted. And now she wonders if what she really wanted she left behind.I love second chance love stories. Sometimes life gets in the way, even when you know what you have is worth everything. These bad choices may lead you off your path, but sometimes you are lucky and find your way back. Now ten years later, Danny and Reese are working together on the opportunity of a lifetime for their careers. Can they pick-up where they left off? Or is it too late? And is it worth losing everything they have worked so hard to obtain? The choices!Danny never knew why Reese left and Reese felt she was losing Danny to his new life. Now ten years later they are working together and sparks are flying. I loved the chemistry between them and how though ten years have passed, it’s as if no time has gone by between them. They are having a hard time remembering what pulled them apart. But so much stands in their way and the choices they make now will affect their future.In the end, Danny knows how he feels and what he wants and though it may not be easy, she is not getting away again.
“That woman. That woman right there. She’s my someone.”
And watching them get there is fun and refreshing. It’s a love story that will sweep you in and though there are some obstacles that will stand in their way, they slowly realize what they mean to each other and what is truly important.
And Vittori, I loved him. His antics and unwavering support had me in stiches. Every girls needs a Vittori in her life!
I loved every minute of this book. You will not help but fall in love with Danny and Reese and cheer them on every step of the way. This was a 4.5 stars read for me and would definitely recommend!
TITLE: Sweet Talk
AUTHOR: S.L. Scott
GENRE: Romantic Comedy
From the New York Times Bestselling Author that brought you The Resistance comes this sexy romantic comedy standalone.
Everything you’ve heard about modeling is true, and you haven’t heard the half of it.
And yes, the line between work and reality often blurs.
We’re not just prototypes of perfection. Models have feelings and desires, too. We may be genetically gifted, but we’re still human.
I’m only human. Yes, an extraordinary specimen that earns more in a day than most make in a year, but this eight pack didn’t create itself. I spend hours working on this body. The good looks just come natural. *Winks* Thanks, Mom and Dad.
I’m Danny Weston, Supermodel.
But one path was traded for another when I chose this career. Ten years later, I would trade my career to have it back. To have her back.
Reese Carmichael is the one woman I would give it all up for, and the only one I can’t have. Yet.

“GOD, I WANT you, Danny,” Simone whispers into my ear. She licks just below it before sliding down over my jaw and biting me.
My hold tightens around her hips, steadying her. I should have seen the bite coming. They all do it, assuming they have to do something extreme to be sexy, to get my attention. Like every other time it happens, I pull back and run my fingers into her hair at the nape of her neck, then tighten my grip.
She gasps and digs her nails into my shoulders while the innocence she’s trying to portray in her eyes fails under the skepticism found in mine. Our bodies are pressed together and heated, the fan not strong enough to cool us down.
Tilting her head back, I kiss the divot at the bottom of her neck, then lick from base to chin, taking my sweet time. Simone’s back arches, pushing her breasts against my chest and she moans in pleasure.
“That is so hot. Keep it up,” a voice intrudes.
Simone sighs, irritated, and pulls away. I turn to the photographer’s assistant standing at the edge of the set just as Simone reveals her frustration by leaning back and swinging her leg over me to stand up. Leisurely, my gaze slides up her lean legs. She’s taller than most women and the heels she’s wearing add another good five inches. Appreciating her physique, I smile and recline back with my hands behind my head while watching her adjust the strings at her hips. Her head snaps up and her eyes narrow on the assistant off set. “If you want us to keep it up, then shut up next time.” She storms off, her shoes clacking loudly against the gray cement floor.
Knowing an angry model needs time, I sit up, and ask, “How much time do we have?”
Everyone is well aware that the mood has changed on the set. Worry creases the assistant’s brow when he answers, “I think, umm… five or ten minutes.”
The guy’s anxiety rolls like waves crashing around me. Feeling bad for him, I reassure, “Don’t worry about her. She’ll be fine. Just give her a few minutes to cool down.”
“Thanks.” He smiles though it’s weak. “Are you doing all right?”
I smile genuinely while standing up. “Yeah, I’m good. Thanks.” When I start to walk, the knit boxer briefs I’m wearing for the shoot tighten uncomfortably, so I stop to adjust. They’re a size too small, so I grab my cock and shift. “Actually, I could use a larger size. These are cutting off my blood circulation down here.”
Before the assistant can respond, two women suddenly appear from the darkened side of the large loft. A cute, petite blonde offers, “Let me take a look. Maybe I can help.” She’s bold, not shy like I would have guessed from the librarian look she’s chosen.
The other lady—taller with some gray strands running through her dark hair—seems new to the modeling world. She stands there staring below my waist, and by the way she’s ogling me, I’m guessing she might be new to naked men in general. Maybe she’s never worked on an underwear campaign before. She clears her throat and finds her voice. “They fit around the waist so I can add more material, if you’d like? But I’ll need them to do that.”
Bypassing the first offer, I accept the second. This is my job. I’m a pro, a model, and used to being naked in front of strangers, so I drop my drawers. I bend down to get them, and when I stand back up I’m greeted with two mouths hanging wide open. “Ladies, you’re gonna make me feel shy,” I tease. I’m not shy at all.
Lifting their chins until both their mouths are closed, I chuckle as they continue to stare unabashedly. The taller woman says, “Oh you have nothing to be shy about.”
“Absolutely nothing,” the blonde adds insistently.
“Thanks,” I reply, my voice it’s usual charm. I hand the boxers to the lady and walk off set to grab my robe. When I slip it on, Becs from wardrobe approaches and says, “I can add some room in there for you. I’ll have them back in ten minutes.”
“I already gave them to the seamstress.”
“What seamstress?” she asks.
“The one over there.” When I turn to the set, they’ve vanished. Scanning the loft from one side to the other, the two women are nowhere to be found. “She was just here with a blonde lady.” Perplexed I scan again. “I have no idea where they went.”
Becs rolls her eyes, shakes her head, and sighs loudly. “Good grief. Not again.” Turning on her heels, she yells out, “Security. We’ve had another breach.” With her eyes narrowed on my waist, she adds, “Tighten the belt. You don’t want anyone selling a photo of your frank ‘n beans to the highest bidder.” Her mood lightening, she smiles and shrugs. “Or maybe you do. I’ll get your next wardrobe change—”
I laugh but point to my privates. “Extra roomy.” Becs waves her hand in the air while walking off.
“Yeah. Yeah. I got it.”
