    This is the first book I have read by Jackie Ashenden but it won

    This is the first book I have read by Jackie Ashenden but it won't be the last. She has style and wit. Her characters are real and you empathize with them. The author has given us a funny, sexy and very emotional story. Joseph Ashton, the successful billionaire, and Christie St. John, a shy and insecure geek, are an awesome couple. I loved their chat room banter as Naughtygirl25 and Studman500. Their chemistry is immediate as is their vulnerability. I couldn't wait to see how their romance played out. This is a book that you don't want to miss.

    I received a ARC from the publisher for an honest review.

    Liked it very much

    ## I definitely enjoyed reading this book. It had a lot a fun moments that made me smile and I love that. The writing was superb with its witty dialogue. I do wish however that the heroine wouldn't have been so weak. The stammering was a bit much. And after all the hurtful things the hero said to push the heroine away, she forgave way too quickly. I'm not a fan of instant forgiveness so I had to deduct one star. Having ADHD doesn't excuse every action. That being said, it was still a fantastic read which I will place in my re-read pile.

    Good, quick read

    I thought this was a good story. It isn't very long, but the author still gets in a good story that works. The synopsis provided in not quite right - there is no gold-digging involved! It's more about a man who doesn't think anyone else will put up with what he considers his major flaw. The characters are well written and the story entertains.

    I like the characters and I like the premise on which the story is based, i liked the time frame and the dialogue.  All in all there was a lot to like about this story!  The storyline is really original and I have to say, I do love a heroine in Docs! A great read in its genre for light hearted relaxing romance.  Looking forward to more from Ms Ashenden.

    4.5 Stars

    I truly enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have read by Jackie Ashenden and it certainly won't be the last.

    Wow, what a unconventional story! It is original, fresh and romantic. The plot moves along effortlessly at a nice pace and the two main characters, Christie St. John and Joseph Ashton are intriguing and real. The reader totally feels the emotion and love developing between them and the honesty they express to each other is refreshing.

    Incorporating ADHD into the storyline, enhanced the truism of the relationship. This is a moving, quick read and I recommend it highly.

    Talking Dirty With the CEO is a sexy, engaging romance that is thoroughly entertaining. Jackie Ashenden does a terrific job of creating a love story between a socially-awkward heiress and a business-driven CEO. A tantalizing tale with wit, steamy sex, and toe-curling romance. 

    Christie St. John is a technology geek, who writes for a tech magazine. She is more comfortable in a gaming room than in a social setting. When she’s given an assignment to research online dating, she does it the only way she feels comfortable doing it – through a gaming chat room. Joseph Ashton suffers from ADHD and finds it difficult to keep his attention sustained on any one woman, so dates casually. When he meets Christie, by accident, in a gaming chat room, he finds himself intrigued. When the two meet face to face, things heat up and become explosive.

    This book was enjoyable with characters that are likeable and believable, a story line that flows smoothly, witty dialogue, hot chemistry, and smoldering romance. A sizzling delight. It will keep you entertained from beginning to end and have you enthralled until the last page.

    A happenstance encounter in an online gaming chat room begins the wild relationship between Christie St. John and Joseph Ashton in Talking Dirty with the CEO by Jackie Ashden. Expecting to go out and have a good time, neither expects to start the torrid affair that follows.




    I liked both characters, and Christie and Joseph embody the idea that opposites attract. Christie, a shy heiress more comfortable sitting on the couch playing video games as she listens to goth music while Joseph is a confident CEO of his technology firm is an avid outdoorsman. The book provides an interesting story on how the two very different personalities merge to find common interests. The one issue with the book is that Joseph’s biggest insecurity, what he considers to be his biggest flaw, is not really a flaw and he has spent his whole life holding back from relationships because of it. That issue aside, it was a creative storyline and fun to see such opposite personalities interact.

    Such a refreshing story this was, funny, geeky, passionate and rewarding.
    I really didn't know what to expect, I've read the story line and liked the sound of it, but never in my wildest dreams I would have thought
    that it was with an online chat room that this romance would start.

    This book grabbed me from the start and the more I read it, the more I wanted to read.
    It was full of up's and down's, the more Christie ran the more I wanted her to stop and as close as Joseph got to the true attraction in
    his heart, the true feeling that he never admitted till a point he had to step down and surrender, the more I cheered for both of them.

    Christie was a character that I understood well. Her loneliness, her fear of loving and not being loved, the rejection of those close to her
    and her indecision in seeing herself in hole new light, were all symptoms of someone that really needed help to rise above her lonely
    life and move forward with confidence.
    She was a great partner to Joseph and I loved every moment that she kept me company while I was reading the book.

    Now Joseph was a present that I unwrapped page by page, a billionaire with a lack of personal life, a lifestyle based on a no
    commitment basis, it should be hard to live alone your whole life and never really connecting with anybody.
    His health condition turned me moody and the fact that his past was tragic broke my heart.
    But when he meets Christie another man comes out of the box, and boy what a man that is.

    Christie's and Joseph's love is hot, a passion burning in the night and the sex was so delicious, hot hot, their connection had a
    lightning effect, a light that made me smile all the way to the end.
    Even when the road had a down turn between them I never took it against Joseph and knew that he couldn't make it without her.

    So, for wraps, in a few words read this book.
    It's a wonderful romance and a great author, you won't regret it.

    The moment I read the blurb for Talking Dirty with the CEO I knew I had to read it, so I signed up for an ARC of the book from Entangled Publishing.

    This was a fun read. Right away it opened with sizzling dialogue...and I just loved the premise. I instantly liked Christie. She's an "every-girl" heroine. I think there is something about her we can all relate to.

    As for Joseph...I can sum him up in one word. YUM! I liked his quick wit and the fact that he struggled with ADHD.

    Together this pair was dynamite. They both had issues with their families that they helped each other overcome. There were several scenes throughout the story that I really enjoyed. I think my all time favorite scene was the bike riding scene. Joseph, an avid non-couch potato took Christie, an avid game-playing-couchie, out on the bike trails. He had a little fun with her by pushing her to the limit, but she didn't back down. That was the moment I truly felt like we got to know Christie's determination and saw more of Jospeh's playful side. They really balanced each other throughout the entire story and I liked that.

    And I won't spoil it, but I loved the way the book ended...so similar to how it started. Nicely done Jackie Ashenden!

    I've added it to my "keeper" list...which means it'll be a story I revisit again for sure.

    Talking Dirty with the CEO by Jackie Ashenden My rating:





    Talking Dirty with the CEO by Jackie Ashenden




    My rating: 4 of 5 stars




    Talking Dirty with the CEO by Jackie Ashenden is set in New Zealand.
    I don't think I have ever read or seen anything based in New Zealand. That alone was kinda cool.
    Christie St. John is an awkward heiress who is more comfortable listening to goth metal, playing video games and tinkering with gadgets and technology and writing about it, than doing ANYTHING at all to do with being social.
    Joseph Ashton, CEO of his own technology company, was in the right place at the right time to accidentally catch the tail end of an online chat involving Christie (AKA Naughtygirl25) and Ugg boots and sheepskin rugs and garter belts!




    The thing I liked about this story is it left much of the hottest action to your imagination but gave you enough to go on to get there. Joseph has ADHD and considers it a major fault. One he thinks excludes him from being anything permanent in people's lives. But as he falls for our heroine, he forgets about his faults and becomes the man we (the reader) already can see he can be. He also empowers Christie to be stronger and more self assured. Not sure how I feel about it taking a man to give her self value, but it's fine in a fictional romantic setting.




    Overall this was a fun read.




    Releasing her nipple from his mouth, Joseph ignored her moan of protest as he raised his head. "I want you," he murmured roughly. "Here. Now. Right Now"
    Her eyes were glazed, her face flushed. She nodded. Then took a fistful of his T-shirt, pulling him back to her. Thank God.

    Christie St. John isn't your typical female. She's really into the tech world, online gaming, and gothic metal. Ok, I can handle the geeky side, but gothic metal not so much (but music is a personal choice). However, that makes her unique, and what makes her unique also makes her an outsider in her own family. Poor girl.

    Then you have Joseph Ashton who is the founder and CEO to Ashton Tech's E-Slate. He has ADHD which makes him forgetful and always busy. He wasn't really looking for any type of serious relationship, because has always felt he couldn't handle it cause of his ADHD.

    As I said, I enjoyed Talking Dirty with the CEO. It made me laugh especially when they started chatting online and the first date. Not only that I got a little choked up with Christie trying to be ok with the fact she's the black sheep of the family, even though it really hurt. Overall, it's a good and quick read. I personally found it entertaining and leaving me satisfy. So, if you are looking for a book with a little dirty talk, you might want to read Talking Dirty with the CEO.
