ARC Review: Talk To Me by Clare James

Thursday, June 26, 2014
*Caution: This story contains explicit sex scenes with an alpha hockey player … who gives an entirely new meaning to the term Body Checking. *

Finn Daley took the world by storm two years ago when he was drafted by the NHL. The young, handsome, high-scoring player quickly became a fan favorite. He had everything going for him: fame, fortune, a promising career, and his pick of women. But when he made an abrupt exit from the NHL last spring, everything changed and he’s been in hiding ever since.

Casey Scott plans to find out why.

After interning for free all summer at the top television station in the Twin Cities, Casey lands an on-air gig. Trouble is, the new role is Sports Girl—which means reporting from local bars and tailgating parties to create excitement for the hometown heroes. All while wearing tiny team jerseys that are so tight they leave little to the imagination.

But she has a plan. Uncover the biggest sports mystery of the decade, and she’ll be on her way. Question is, how far will she go to get the story?



3 Stars

Casey, is determined to make her mark in the world of reporting and journalism, but the only job she can get is as a KXAA girl. Her job is to report sport news, specifically hockey while wearing the skimpiest outfits. When she smells a story that could be the breakthrough her career needed, she goes after it! What she didn't plan on was developing feelings for the main focus of her story, Finn Daley. Finn, is just as attracted to Casey as she is to him, maybe even more so.

Talk To Me, is written in first person, present tense and I had trouble getting into the story because of the present tense. The story is told from Finn and Casey's POV in a sort of flashback fashion and the characters' narrations read like a conversation, which is another reason I had some trouble.

The plot revolves around Casey's and her quest to find "The Story" and her Finn might just be what she's looking for. Finn is hiding something, to be quite honest I had all sorts of theories, (view spoiler) but none of them were correct.

I liked Finn's character, he's a sexy ex-hockey player, a bad boy, what's not to like? Casey, is a strong and confident heroine. She's also a journalist and will do almost anything to get her story. There was one incident where she found something in Finn's car and immediately jumped to a ridiculous conclusion, for the life of me I can't figure out how she came to that conclusion.

All in all, Talk To Me was a short sexy read with a teeny weeny cliffhanger. I wouldn't call this erotica, but it was definitely hot, I think I'm one of those people that actually enjoy cliffhangers so I liked the fact that the ending left me wanting more. I think I know what Finn's secret is but I need more clarification (what's it called), which I hope to get in the next book.
