Review: Talking Dirty to the Player by Jackie Ashenden

Title: Talking Dirty to the Player (Talking Dirty #2)
Author: Jackie Ashenden
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source: Publisher Request (Entangled: Indulgence)
Reviewed by: Jasmyn

Up-and-coming photographer Judith Ashton is pretty sure she has everything in her life under control. That is, until a blast from the past comes back to taunt her, in the shape of Caleb Steele, her older brother's best friend...and the man who broke her heart eight years ago. Their chemistry is combustible, but she's been fooled once by this player, and she's not going there again. To pro rugby player Caleb, Judith has always been his Kryptonite. But his former playboy lifestyle is the last thing she wants to be involved in. In the midst of her brother's threats to back off, and the deal of his career sending him far away from her, he knows he's playing with fire. And this is one game he's going to lose.

I loved the characters in this book.  They were so well written and a little different than what you usually see in a romance.  On the outside, Caleb is everything you expect from a famous athlete/play boy but inside he's just a big softie.  It's too bad Judith doesn't ever see that side until it's almost too late.  As she takes photos for a new charity calender, her camera catches something she never thought to see - the real Caleb.

This was a super fun read and can be read as a stand-alone, although we do see the couple from book one.  You do not need to know much about rubgy (cause I know nothing), other than they are incredibly in shape and hot.  Judith and Caleb need to get to know each other all over again, and in a completely new way.  It was great to watch the try and figure each other out, even though they both thought they already knew everything.  This was a great, sweet romance.
