    A wonderfully romantic, sexy and satisfying love story.

    The hero, Harrison, is somehow both bad-boy sexy and a genuine gentleman—believably. I couldn’t wait to see what he would say (or do) next to the heroine, True. I adored True. At the outset she’s appealingly vulnerable and just a little bit of an adorable mess, but she’s swiftly revealed to be a strong woman fighting for her family and her home. I love this sort of heroine—utterly feminine while kick-ass in her own way and determined.

    The romance brought me to tears of happiness all the way through, including the absolutely perfect brief flashbacks to Harrison and True’s childhood and teen years. I adored their relationship, a bond of friendship and trust and adventure formed early in their lives that—despite all that drives them apart—never fades and never dies. It’s both deeply moving and incredibly hot. Their chemistry sizzles.

    The minor characters are real, imperfect, and so loveable. There’s a lot of love in this book, in fact, between all the characters, and all types of love, and it makes the entire story glow. The setting creates the glow too. Though this book is a small-town romance, it feels big, rich, colorful, textured, and infinitely charming in a real, honestly lived way. I actually wanted to be living there in that small southern coastal town, diving off the dock or picking strawberries or eating pancakes at the kitchen table in Maybank Hall. It’s a warm, welcoming, delicious world, and I hope Kramer has more books planned for it. Finally, there are so many one-liner jewels that I gasped, smiled and laughed throughout.

    I recommend this book for readers looking for a wonderfully sexy, warm, romantic and satisfying read.

    Please note: I review very few books, and only those that I stay up all night to finish. I love smart, determined heroines with secretly soft hearts; alpha heroes with brains and compassion; a colorful cast of minor characters; hot sex scenes that are really true love scenes; and great writing.

    This is a sweet second chance romance.  Southern Deb in love with the boy from the wrong side of the tracks who has grown up and made good.   Living in the south I’ve met women like True and could really relate to her.  I loved the secondary characters almost as much.  This is an escape as sweet as southern tea.

    Kieran Kramer is no newbie to writing great love stories. In Sweet Talk Me, she's moved from a historical European setting to a contemporary American one. Her knack for writing strong characters hasn't changed and even those who are strict historical romance readers will enjoy this book. In fact, I can easily say this is my favorite book of hers by far.

    True Maybank and Harrison Gamble may have been star-crossed friends growing up, but things have really changed in the ten years since Harrison left Biscuit Creek. True is still a Southern Belle but Harrison has gone from looked-down-upon by everyone to a bonafide celebrity. His coming home is unplanned but once his serendipitous True and brings her home, leaving suddenly doesn't seem so important. To be honest with you, this book really gave me the feels, both happy and sad. However, it's the scenes that brought tears to my eyes, that are making me tear up as I think of them. I will proudly admit to crying as I read this book.

    Besides all the emotions this book evoked, it's the characters that make this book. True and Harrison have great chemistry and are great, however I believe Weezie and Gage, their siblings steal part of their spotlight. I love how Kieran made them such integral parts of not only True and Harrison's story, but also their individual ones. This book feels not like one single story, but four or five. Each is separate yet part of a whole and it's flawless. I hope Kieran will keep writing more books set in Biscuit Creek just so I can keep reading about True, Harrison, Weezie, Gage, and Carmela.

    The strongest themes in this book are regarding the importance of family, coming home, and being true to ones self and they carry out through every aspect of the book. This book captivated me from the first page until I put it down. You will smile, laugh, cry, and fan yourself as True and Harrison figure things out. This charming book is certain to leave a lasting impression on you as it did me.

    I'd like to thank Kieran for sending me a copy to review. Her doing so has no bearing on this review. If you don't believe me, all you have to do is pick up the book and you can see for yourself. This book is pure magic.
