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.

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


Talking Dirty With the Player (Talking Dirty, #2) Reviews

    It was ok. Caleb's whole "I don't do relationships" and Jude's "I don't do casual" didn't make sense when they got together. He flat out told her he doesn't do relationship and she flat out old him she doesn't do casual. Yet some how in the course of the same conversation they decided having a fling was a good idea???? Huh? Doesn't make sense. It wasn't even like the other was pretending to be ok with the other statement. They disagreed and then ignored it.

    When I picked up Talking Dirty with the Player I wasn't sure what to expect--would I get a cute story? A sexy one? A funny one? An annoying one? Thankfully, it was all of that (minus the "annoying"!) and more! I'm a huge fan of great wit and banter in my romance novels, and Jackie Ashenden provided plenty of that, which in turn made me a very happy reader. And the fun conversations did not only take place between the hero and heroine, but many of the other characters as well. This also made me a [...]

    Talking Dirty With The Player was an enjoyable read. I just love Jackie's writing and I fell in love with Caleb and Judith. Their chemistry was coming off the pages and there was nice tension built up throughout the book. A must read for Jackie fans and fans of this series.

    What a fun read! I can always count on Entangled publishing to pick great authors to publish. Talking Dirty with the Player was fun and witty but there were still those moments when my heart would ache. The love story between Judith and Caleb was so relatable. I think most of us can think of a time when we were afraid to dive into a relationship head first so we just pushed them away. I really loved the character development within the story, I think the author did wonders with Caleb's character [...]

    While I am not a huge fan of rugby, I have watched a few matches, and I typically follow the World Cup. There is not an overwhelming amount of rugby specific terminology in this book, so even a reader unfamiliar with the sport can still enjoy this book. The author did an incredible job blending entertaining banter with flawless writing. The only hitch was that although the characters were well-developed I was not able to connect with them. While the book does have a satisfying conclusion, I just [...]

    Okay so I completely and utterly loved this book!!!! If I could I would list out the entire book. Again I think I marked every page in this book to come back too because I loved EVERY second of it. This book had everything in it for me and had so much realism in it that it could pretty much happen to anyone. It made me laugh, and cry and feel happy and sad and loved and I loved the steamy hawt scenes between Caleb and Judith. Ohhh and I have to say this because I feel like I've been cheated in l [...]

    Full review is posted on my blog, Becky on Books.Talking Dirty with the Player is book two in the series, but it can definitely be read as a stand-alone. (Warning: you’ll probably want to read book one, though. I know I do—and fortunately, I picked it up when the Indulgence line was on sale last month.) Judith is Talking Dirty with the CEO‘s Joe’s little sister, and Caleb is his best friend.I really enjoyed this book. There was a lot of amusing snark flying back and forth between Jude an [...]

    Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickTalking Dirty with the Player is the second book in Jackie Ashenden's Talking Dirty Series. I didn't know that this was the second book until after I had already started reading this story. Luckily, these books can be read as stand alone and I didn't have any problems with feeling lost or missing anything. This book does a great job of including the characters from the first book and giving enough back-story that you know everything you need t [...]

  • Sapphyria

    Due to overlapping characters, this series is best read in order.Judith Ashton (Jude) is a popular photographer with her own studio. When her brother, Joseph, CEO of Aston Tech (star of Book One) asks her to consider taking on a job with his best friend Caleb, she can hardly do anything but say no. Jude's history with Caleb is full of heartache and pain. She can't fathom having to work side-by-side with him while creating a calendar to generate sales for an important charity.Caleb "abs of" Steel [...]

    My rating: 4,5 of 5 stars - Awesome ReadMy Review: TALKING DIRTY WITH THE PLAYER has the brother best friend/best friend's sister romance trope! WOOHOO! This alone would make me want to rush to buy and read this book. But the fact that I loved the first book in this series and that the heroine is the first book’s hero’s sister was just icing on the cake.Judith is cool and in control, determined not to let Caleb and her attraction to him affect her. She allowed that once and it didn't end wel [...]

    What do you get when you have two damaged souls that have amazing chemistry? You get the story of Judith and Caleb with all the pain that goes along with opening your heart up when you really don't want to trust it to anyone at all.Judith is over Caleb. No, really she is I mean sure they had one amazing night together when she gave him everything she was and then dealt with the fact that he basically threw it back in her face days later. Yeah there is no reason that seeing him should be difficul [...]

  • Shirley Frances

    Judith wants nothing to do with Caleb. One heart broken by the man was enough for her, but apparently her mind and her body have not come to an agreement because she continues to be attracted to the insufferable man. Caleb is a force to be reckon with on and off the field. Handsome and sexy, he grins her way and her body starts tingling. What's more, now that she's decided to work with him on a calendar she knows her days are numbered and that she will succumb to his charm.Caleb has wanted Judit [...]

    3 stars - Combining loving the brother's best friend with second chances - a good readWhen you have that cover along with a blurb talking about a rugby player, I'm in. I also really enjoy the falling for the brother's best friend thing. But this one also has a second chance piece to it. I was definitely drawn to it. Oh and it's set in New Zealand! That was fun.I love Caleb or Cal - his nickname. He's such a great guy. His mom died of cancer and his dad was a jerk alcoholic so he's had a hard row [...]

    This is the second story in a trilogy of interrelated, but standalone, stories about three relationships. That is, characters, scenes, and events from this story appear in the two other stories.This story opens at the wedding reception of Christie and Joseph from Talking Dirty with the CEO and concerns Judith (Jude) and Caleb. Judith, sister to Joseph, is a photographer. Caleb is a professional rugby player and one of Joseph's best friends. They're both attendants in the wedding party.Eight year [...]

    Talking Dirty with the Player should've been I Don't Trust You Womanizing Rugby Star. It started off promising and then floundered until the last fourth of the novel, which isn't saying much because that last fourth wasn't all that good either. Judith Ashton is a promising photographer commissioned (read: emotionally blackmailed, but use the term lightly) into shooting a "sexy" calendar for charity. The charity is a favorite of Caleb Steele's, who just happens to be a highly touted (and highly l [...]

    Rating 4.5StarsPosted on What I'm ReadingSo yesterday I finished Talking Dirty With the Player by Jackie Ashenden, which is the second book in Talking Dirty books. I must say that this one was a bit more steamier than Talking Dirty With the CEO. Let just I was shocked, but in the good way.Well, in this story we are dealing with Joseph Ashton's little sister Judith (Jude) and his best friend Caleb Steele. Yes, we all know that this spells disaster. We all know that older brothers will warn off th [...]

    Talking Dirty With The Player is a sassy second chance love story set in Auckland, New Zealand, that follows the journey of Judith Dalton and Caleb Steele as they come to terms with their long-denied feelings for each other. Eight years ago Judith and Caleb spent the night together, she gave him her heart only to have him break it by telling her that he doesn't do relationships, and that his rugby career was more important. Fast forward eight years to Judith's brother Joe's wedding Caleb is bac [...]

    I read this book without seeing the cover. Which is probably just as well as most electronic equipment does not deal well with drool. The hero is Caleb "Abs of" Steele, a rugby player nearing retirement and starting to think, reluctantly, about life after football. Judith, Jude, is a photographer and has been the responsible one for most of her life since her mother abandoned the family leaving her as the homemaker and primary caregiver to her brother Joseph who has ADHD as her father was distan [...]

  • MsChris1161

    This was a great read about a couple who have known each other most of their lives, but as friends. Caleb is a very sexy international professional rugby star who is well known for also being a major player off the field. Judith is a photographer, but more importantly the younger sister of his long-time best friend who has had a crush on him for as long as she was old enough to notice boys. Once she was eighteen that notice was returned resulting in a passionate night between Caleb and Judith th [...]

    Talking Dirty With the Player (Talking Dirty #2) by Jackie AshendenI received Talking Dirty with the Player by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review. I haven’t read anything written by Jackie Ashenden before this and I will say I have already added the first book in the series to my reading list. I enjoyed Jackie’s writing style, the characters were well developed and I found this story quite exciting, the secondary characters were great and this is probably why I feel the ne [...]

    Honestly? I loved it! I was a bit hard to get into it, but once in, it was impossible to get out.I loved the plot very much, it was quite complex for a book for its size. This is book is not very short, I would call it moderate size – aprox. 210 pages.The story is well written, easy to read and quite interesting. What more to desire in a book?I loved the characters. Jude is really nice, independent and very, very stubborn. I liked seeing her turn back into the confident, carefree girl she used [...]

  • Nicola

    This book is as delicious as the stunning sight gracing the cover; if you liked Naughtygirl and Studman in 'Talking Dirty with the CEO', you will love Abs of Steele and Babycakes.If you haven't, I'd recommend reading the first book as Joseph and Christie feature heavily; Judith is his younger sister, Caleb his best friend and to understand Jude it helps to understand Joe. She's feisty, sarcastic and guarded, but with valid reason and it's impossible not to find her endearing. Caleb, well the man [...]

Talking Dirty With the Player is a about Judith Ashton who is an up and coming photographer who believes her life is under control. In comes Caleb Steele Judith's older brother's best friend to stir up old feelings that never really went away eight years ago. Judith is not sure she wants to go down that path again since she was hurt the first time. Caleb Steele is famous rugby player who needs Judith help ta [...]

  • Michelle

    Caleb and Judith's story was a lot of fun to read. They are both at the top of their game when it comes to witty comebacks! I can't even say how many times I laughed while reading this book. One of my favorite interactions between the two came early in the book (pg 7). "See, this is what I've missed while I've been away. I say something, then you say something, then I say something back and you end with 'Shut up, Caleb'. We always have such great, in-depth conversations." Seriously, had me in st [...]
