Talk Dirty To Me by Ginny Glass and Inez Kelley

Talk Dirty To Me

Ginny Glass and Inez Kelley

Grade: C

Contemporary Erotic Romance

Ginny Glass and Inez Kelley's Talk Dirty To Me continues my losing streak of this premise: Hunky guy accidentally discovers an uptight heroine yearning to get her full freak on, and tries to fulfill her fantasies either anonymously or without revealing his knowledge of her secret desires. What hinders this particular story is that Nora MacGregor is too often a pill and too much word count is devoted to the Jarod/James "secret." The result is not enough of a non-annoying Nora and an over-abundance of Jarod acting like a spurned lover once he realizes that James, his "talk dirty to me" telephone alter ego, is as much of a lure to her as he is in the more romantic flesh. Not that Jarod as Jarod didn't present his own problem for me; his literary references to James Joyce (he's a literature professor to her biology PhD candidate) canceled a great deal of the story's eroticism because of their purple proseyness.
