Overview

As the Dating Guy on L.A.'s top morning show, I give the single guy's perspective on dating, love, and sex—and I give great advice. Everyone's hooking up…well, except for me. Sure, I can get any woman I want, but I've got a "no relationship" clause in my contract and the only woman I want has "relationship" written all over her. Probably stamped on her ass, too. And wouldn't I like to confirm that.

Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with me. At all. Something about the next Ice Age might have even come up in her rebuttal. Adorable. Because she's determined to ignore what one simple kiss proved: she wants me as badly as I want her.

Everything in me is screaming to go after her, but I've got a secret that I'm fairly certain will end up with her roasting my nuts over an open fire. So, job on the line? Check. Nuts on the line? Check. Can't get her out of my head? Nail…meet coffin. But what a way to go…

After reading the blurb, teasers, and a few reviews I was expecting a lot from TALK BRITISH TO ME. I have never read a book by Robin Bielman before, but I was expecting to be impressed. Not only was I not disappointed, my expectations were exceeded. LOVE. LOVE. LOVED Mateo and Teague... and Bennett. And Harper, and Briggs, and Zoe, and Elliott, and Erin, and the rest of Mateo's flirty friends who I hope to read more about soon. Mateo Gallagher is flirty, charming, tall, dark, hot and sexy, and dirty talking and cocky -- completely full of himself in a very irresistible way. He adds a British accent to this and charms his way into the hearts of women over the radio anonymously as Bennett, the Dating Guy. That's right, it's his job to date numerous women and then give pointers to men and women about what to do and not to do out in the dating world to find their true love. Mateo love his job and has no intentions of settling down with just one girl. Let me just say right here, one of my favorite aspects of the story was how staff and customers alike at Teague's coffee shop shushed and stopped what they were doing so everyone could hear the Dating Guy's broadcasts, and then the minute it was over the mute was off and the bustle back on. Teague Watters has recently graduated from college and moved from a small town in Oregon to come to make it as a travel writer in the big city of Los Angeles. She is as girl-next-door wholesome as they come. She may still be a relationship kind of girl, but she's already had her heart broken once and is not interested in a repeat. She knows Mateo is way out of her league and nothing but trouble the minute she runs into him, literally runs into him. I love that she doesn't fall for his lines or at his feet like so many other women do, and so does he. She's a breath of fresh air that he finds impossible to resist. Lucky for him they keep running into each other since she keeps blowing him off. Even though he knows he's all wrong for her, he gets her to at least agree to hang out as friends because he can't help wanting more and more time with her. Mateo and Teague have chemistry to burn, but its a slow burn per the friendship restrictions they agree to even though both of them are falling hard. The author does a great job building the anticipation of when these two will finally get together. She throws in several twists and roadblocks. Gives us plenty of entertainment to keep us interested and busy, while we wait, not the least of which being "Tayo's" adorable little six year old neighbor, Zoe, who has him twisted around her little finger with her sassy, pull no punches attitude. But also the various bride drama (Teague gets a job as the assistant for a wedding consultant) and the hilarity that is Harper, Teague's best friend and roommate. Great character building and dialogue -- the banter is awesome! This story is well-rounded, hilarious, sexy, and romantic. Even Mateo, for all he goes on about what a serial dater he is, his broadcasts as Bennett are insightful and have that bit of romance about them. Great story! Highly recommend you read it. 4.5 stars ~Complimentary copy downloaded from NetGalley. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

I really enjoyed Talk British to Me by Robin Bielman. Teague Watters left her small town in Oregon after being publically dumped by her boyfriend to live and work with her best friend and former college roommate, Harper. Every Monday morning, Teague, Harper and all the customers in a coffee shop in Los Angeles where they work, stop to listen to Bennett, the Dating Guy on a morning radio show. Bennett gives out dating advice from his experiences and observations, all with a sexy British accent. One day while delivering an order from the coffee shop, Teague ends up with a second job working for Gabrielle Gallagher, a wedding planner. Somehow, Teague keeps literally bumping into Mateo Gallagher and the two decide to become friends. But Mateo has a secret; he is the man behind Bennett and due to his contract is not allowed to get serious with any girl. This put a damper on Mateo as he develops feelings for Teague and she for him. This becomes a problem which he needs to figure out how to solve. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Bielman is a wonderful story teller drawing me into her books, making me forget the world around me. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Witty, funny, swoony, heartfelt – everything rolled up into one delightful read. Teague is learning her way in her first foray into being independent. The way she lands a new job gives us real insight into the person that she is – kind, caring, and willing to help anyone out of a fix. When she first sees Mateo – she recognizes him for the player he is and has no intention of “going there”. The “Dating Guy” insights are hilarious. Is he cocky – to be sure, but it’s in such a charming way that you are as charmed as Teague becomes. “Just because I hit it and quit it doesn’t mean I don’t treat my date like she walks on water.” And his “Tayo” side – oh my – that will get your heart to fluttering. I enjoyed this book immensely. Teague is a strong female character who is only willing to put up with so much and Mateo learns a lot about humility and putting others before himself. Do not hesitate – you want to read this book!! I submitted a request to the publisher to read and voluntarily review an advance reader's copy of this book.

This is a hot, tempting NA novel. It was sweet, sexy, and funny. Lots of laugh out loud moments and some ‘awe he’s so sweet’ ones too. Mateo and Teague are both in their early twenties, just starting out in their careers. They meet in a bar, when they literally bump into one another, prompting the first if many laughs in this book. Mateo has a secret that no one knows about. He’s L,A’s hottest new radio star. He’s also the son of Teague’s unexpected boss. Teague is thrown in at the deep end when Gabrielle Gallagher decides in the spur of the moment to employ the coffee shop barista to be her next assistant. Teague is stunned but the giant paycheck sways her and she goes along with it. Gabrielle is the proverbial boss from hell. I would have walked out the 1st day lol. The job offers lots of fun adventures and some crazy escapades along the way, not least of which is bumping into Mateo again, minus the hot sauce from their first encounter. When Gabrielle discovers that they know each other, she tells Mateo to stay away from Teague, but not for Teague’s sake. No, Gabrielle deems Teague to be too far below Mateo for him to be seen out with her, Mateo has a mind and a will of his own and chooses to ignore his mom. Wanting to get to know Teague better, he agrees to be just friends. At least until she succumbs and lets him into her pants. I really enjoyed the slower approach, and longer burn this story took, but when it got to the hot and steamy parts I wasn’t disappointed. But the story as a whole was just so endearing and kept me smiling, well mostly. Not when Mateo was being a douche, but thankfully that didn’t happen much. I’m really looking forward to the next book in this series.

TOTALLY FELL LOVE WITH THE BOOK AND THE CHARACTERS!!!! 5 Stars isn’t anywhere enough stars for this romantic comedy. Talk British to Me ranks as one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS! I read it in 24 hours! Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. I had to force myself to get at least a few hours of sleep. Mateo is the host of a hit radio show that gives a single guy’s perspective on dating. He dates a lot and quite a few women have ended up in his bed. It’s the perfect job for him even if he has a no relationship clause in his contract…he’s no where near ready to settle down that is until he literally runs into Teague. He’s mesmerized from that moment on. He knows there is something special about her from that moment. Too bad she is the girl that you would commit to. Plus, she wants nothing to do with him. He isn’t used to being given the brush-off. Luckily for us, readers, Teague later agrees to Mateo’s offer of friendship…just friends, after finding out her new boss is Mateo’s mother. No way does she want to lose her job. But, the sparks are way TOO hot!!!! I wondered how long it would take them to give into each other. I knew when they did everything would change. I loved the storyline. There were little secrets kept, like Mateo’s identity as Bennett. He has perfected the British accent he uses for the show, so Teague has no idea who he really is! I loved the slow build-up and electric sexual chemistry that the author used to keep me interested. It was perfect timing. As I was waiting for the inevitable to happen, a friendship developed between them. So, it wasn’t just lust, a deep caring bond occurred between them; one that lasts a lifetime. OMG! I loved the characters, even Mateo’s hard butt Momma. I adored the friendship between Teague and her BFF, Harper. Bielman sums it up perfectly: “We’re totally different but complement each other perfectly. She’s the loud to my quiet, tough to my soft, careless to my careful. She’s the flip side of me, and I love her like a sister.” ~ Teague Who wouldn’t fall in love with Teague? She is just so adorable and has no problem showing others kindness. “She is so d$$$ considerate she must have unicorn in her, because I’ve yet to meet a girl as selfless as she is.” ~ Mateo As sweet as she is, she also has a backbone and doesn’t let others run over her. That is part of her appeal to both Mateo’s mother and Mateo himself. She finds him irresistible yet she doesn’t fawn all over him like other girls do. She sees him for just who he is…flaws and all. “No one has ever looked at me the way she does, with honest-to-goodness, genuine consideration and interest. Like she doesn’t give a s$$$ what everyone else knows or sees. She wants to know the real me.” ~Mateo Speaking of Mateo, he might have a huge ego, but underneath it all, he really is a sweet guy. I discovered he isn’t single because he wants to perpetually be a bachelor. He was hurt deeply by his ex’ just like Teague was. So, the two are helping each other heal. I loved seeing him fall for her. “I’m completely taken with this girl. Her kiss. Her body. Her humor, intelligence, and genuine sweetness. She’s the kind of air I want to breathe in every single day.” ~ Mateo This book is as perfect as a book can be! It has it all: romance, spice, friendship, humor, and great characters! I love how the writer hinted that there may be a future book about Harper and possibly Levi! I can’t wait for that one. If you want a book that will leave you weak i

Talk British to Me (Wherever You Go) by Robin Bielman This is Mateo and Teague's story. This was a fun and steamy romance. I fell in love with Teague and Mateo. So, if you like a fun romance with a lot of spice then this book is for you. I laughed so much reading Teague and Mateo's story. They both had things that they thought they wanted in life. Sometimes in life we don't see what's right in front of us. Will Teague and Mateo take a chance on love or let it pass them by? You just need to read their story. FYI, contains mature content.  I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I freaking loved this book!! Reading Teague come out of her shell and go for what she wanted was so much fun! As I started reading I noticed some familiar names and sure enough, Teague is the younger sister from one if Ms. Bielman's other series. It was a nice surprise to see the other characters again. I adored Teague and her best friend Harper in this book. They were both very likeable, hilarious, and complete opposites, but always there for one another. Then there is Mateo. He comes across as arrogant and thinking he is God's gift to women at times, but Teague definitely puts him in his place. I love that he cannot stay away from her or not touch her or not have her in his life. Of course there were a couple of times he needed some sense knocked into him, but he finally got it, and made it all better. Mateo was a really decent guy, loyal and caring to his friends and family and oozed charm with sex appeal. I really enjoyed reading this book and stayed up all night just to finish it. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Loved! I absolutely adored Mateo's voice--his cocky confidence in himself and his abilities was so much fun to read! (And made it all that much more meaningful when he started to question things he'd never questioned before!) Teague wasn't too bad herself--plus, she was so easy to identify with--really, I just had so much fun with this one. There are many, many highlighted passages in my digital version, and there may have been a few instances of snort-laughing. Though I'll never tell. ;) The secondary characters here are a lot of fun too--Teague's BFF Harper and Mateo's roommate Levi are clearly being set up for a future series book (yay!), plus they have a third roommate (double yay!), and don't even get me started on Zoe, their six-year-old next door neighbor and the cutest kid (sadly only fictionally) alive--Ms. Bielman made them all come alive on the page, and made you want to become besties with every single one of them. The first in a new series, Talk British to Me (and OMG, that title leads me to one of my favorite bits, at the very end) is also being referred to as a standalone, but if you really want more of these characters and don't feel like waiting for book two, Teague's the younger sister of Luke from Kissing the Maid of Honor and Erin from Wild About Her Wingman in the Secret Wishes series. You're welcome ;) Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

My day gets a little brighter EVERY time I read one of Robin Bielman's sizzling, sweet, romantic books. This is book one in the Wherever You Go series and it features Mateo Gallagher and Teague Watters. This wildly romantic story is full of fabulous characters, self reflection, friends and lots of loving and caring family. Teague and Mateo have undeniable chemistry that shows every time they're together. I didn't like how easy it was for him to hurt her. He was able to easily explain away certain situations and she, too naïvely in my opinion, accepted those excuses. Other than those couple of incidences, the story line was sweet, romantic, funny and a little sad but mostly sweet. And Mateo…SEXY! As I was reading I had the perfect tone of voice in my mind for Mateo and Bennett. YUM! And that cover? It sets the tone for the very sexy Bennett! As always I can't wait for the next book from this amazing author. Oh, and now I'd like a hammock of my own. (wink,wink)

This was such a fun read. I love it when the authors take the time to develop an interesting and totally unique plot. This is not a run-of-the-mill romance story but it does lean into the chick-lit and even rom-com categories a bit. I love the fact that this is a lighthearted read that is without a ton of drama and angst. The author took her time developing the characters along with a great deal of sexual tension and anticipation. Robin Bielman never fails to deliver a engaging and captivating read. Sweet and saucy, this series is definitely going to be one to lighten your heart and enjoy to the fullest. * copy received for review consideration

Imagine if you will a mash-up of The Devil Wears Prada, Hitch and one of those 1950s/1960s comedies starring Rock Hudson and Doris Day where he wants to have an affair and she wants to get married (Lover Come Back apparently). Well this book reminds me of that! Mateo Gallagher is the son of a wealthy LA family, after a broken leg ended his soccer career before it began, and lost him his girlfriend, he began playing the field. A random one-night stand with a radio producer led to him having a morning dating radio programme called 'The Dating Guy' where he imparts his wisdom on dating and women to the world. There are three conditions: anonymity, secrecy and Mateo must stay single. As the world's greatest gift to women Mateo loves his job and it comes easy to him. He is happy with the conditions, he wouldn't want his parents to be embarrassed by what he does/ says on the radio and so he calls himself "Bennett" and fakes a British accent. Teague Watters is the baby of her family. Coming from a small town where everyone knows her and her business she has moved to LA to be with her BFF Harley (about whom more anon), she is working in a coffee shop when she gets offered the job as assistant to wedding planner extraordinaire Gabrielle Gallagher whilst delivering coffee to Gabrielle's offices. Teague is smalltown girl writ large. But she's clever and motivated and has a 'can-do' attitude, no matter what her bitchy boss says or does. Mateo and Teague run into each other (literally) in a bar, he is captivated, she less so. They run into each other again shortly afterwards whilst Teague is trying to deliver some wedding invitations which is when they realise that Mateo's mother is none other than Teague's new boss. Now there is even more reason for the Dating Guy to stay away from Teague, other than the fact that she has 'girlfriend material' written all over her. This is not the book I thought it was, when I read the blurb I thought there would be a lot of Bennett's opinions on girls and dating but there are surprisingly few, like maybe six. Really this book is all about Teague, although Mateo has to go on more of an emotional journey. With the exception of Harper (who I loathed), I loved the characters in this book and would happily read their stories. Harper was a foul-mouthed, embarrassment who could easily have got Teague fired by gate-crashing her professional engagements and acting inappropriately. I guess she was supposed to be wacky and funny but caring - she failed, she just seemed like that 'friend' who doesn't know when she's crossed the line and is really immature. Unfortunately I think she will be the subject of the next book :( Anyhoo, I thought this was going to be a typical NA/YA novel where the guy is a jerk and the girl is a doormat (or terribly scarred from an horrific childhood trauma - take you pick) and I left it on my TBR pile until Wendy's fantastic review persuaded me to give it another chance. Mateo is a great guy, loves kids, loves his family, does charitable work - just love him! He could be my new book toyboy! I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Teague is having quite the year. Moving to a new city, getting a new job, and being pursued by a hottie. Honest almost to a fault, people will walk over her if she's not careful. This includes her new boss. Mateo is glad to be friends with Teague. He knows she is the forever kind. He cannot be in a committed relationship right now, or his career will be crushed. So he settles. Scared of his secrets coming to light, he makes the most of his friendship with the best friend he has had in some time. Sexy and sweet, this book moves at a good pace and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. There is so many surprises inside, this book is worth the read. Glad to have the humor to break up the heart crushing pieces, this story kept me turning the page! ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley and its publishers in exchange for an honest review.

heartwarming and entertaining read with Talk British to Me I really had fun reading this story. It was very interesting and the plot was captivating. This is a light-hearted, fun and sexy romance that kept me entertained with all the interesting characters interwoven throughout the story. The main characters Mateo and Teague were a great pair. They had fantastic chemistry with witty and flirtatious banter. This is a story that is set on the radio, with L.A.‘s top morning show and its not a inta-love story but more of a slow burner romance which definitely throws off a lot of heat and heart. Talk British to Me is the start to the Wherever You Go series. I loved book 1 and I would be interested to see what the next book will hold. I adored Mateo and his sexy accent , I loved Teague and her sweet ways. If you love contemporary romance , especially NA romance, then you will love this story. I do not want to give too much of the story away, this is a book you need to experience!! My Rating: 4.5 stars ***** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Teague is really trying hard to stay away from Mateo. He is too cute and he knows it. She recently got dumped by the only guy she has ever dated and is feeling a little insecure. Plus Mateo just happens to be her new boss's son. Teague cant help but be charmed by Mateo but she tries so hard to keep her heart out of the equation. There is just something about Teague that draws Mateo in even though he knows she is not the one night kind of girl. He knows he is in no position to be what she needs due to his job as "The Dating Guy" on a local radio show. Mateo wants Teague but he also wants the single life. He is kind of at a crossroads of what he should do. At first I really liked Mateo. Mateo really was a good guy. When reading the synopsis I thought he would come across like a douche but he didn't. He was just very confident. The one thing that keep me from loving him was his relentless pursuit of Teague when he knew he would eventually hurt her in some way. I wish he would have manned up a little earlier in the story. I liked Teague. She was just a little to sheltered to me. She blushed every time Mateo said something to her. I really liked the friendship between Teague and Mateo. I'm a sucker for characters growing from friends to a more intimate relationship. I liked the conflict and resolution of the story. Both felt realistic to me. I also liked the secondary characters in this story. So much happened with them I'm wondering whose story will be next. I'm leaning towards Harper and Levi because there is some connection from the past there but I would also like Madison to get a happy ending. Overall I did like this book and would recommend it to others. I really look forward to reading about other characters in this series. 3.5 stars

4.5 Stars - I'm so pleased that I discovered this author! She's truly gifted in portraying the emotions of her characters, giving them depth and passion, as well as friends and family that add to their journey. She also created a well-developed world and makes you interested in not only the main couple but the secondary characters as well. I'm hoping we see some of these characters in future books, like Levi, Harper and another certain someone (I'm not giving it away ;)). This book was reminiscent of The Wedding Planner meets The Devil Wears Prada with a twist. I loved everything about it, the way Teague and Mateo kept bumping into each other, their easy friendship, and the fun and sexy banter. Everything about their relationship seemed incredibly natural. I loved the progression of their relationship from something light and playful to more intimate and loving. And the humor throughout the book added the the greatness of this story. I can't wait to read what the author has in store for us next! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.

mateo gallagher is not british. he is the dating guy, l.a. talk radio's hottest dj ever. in order to date and preserve his anonymity he uses a fake british accent on the air. that his job requires him to stay single and available is no hardship. that is, until he meets teague watters. and suddenly he finds that staying unattached can be a challenge when you've met the right girl. except beyond mateo's employment contract, they have a bigger obstacle in mateo's mom, gabriella, who also happens to be teague's boss. and she does not approve of her assistant socializing with her beloved son. but it's also impossible to stop their paths from crossing given mateo's prominent role in one of the weddings gabriella is planning. the more teague gets to know mateo, the more she realizes that there is more to him than just a pretty face. and he comes through for her in a big way when her world is rocked by a family crisis. but when he holds back, she believes it's because he doesn't think she's worth the commitment. when actually it's his job and his sudden realization that he wants her in his life full time that has him running scared. is it even possible for him to have it all? mateo is super dreamy and teague is funny and charming and normal. these two characters are so great, and it's nice to see them work it all out in a believable, rational way. sometimes these new adult romances can go a bit over the top with the melodrama, but that isn't true in talk british to me. **talk british to me will publish on june 19, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (embrace) in exchange for my honest review. for more information on talk british to me read on past the jump.

3.75 stars-- TALK BRITISH TO ME is the first installment in Robin Bielman’s contemporary, new adult WHEREVER YOU GO romance series This is radio host twenty three year old Mateo ‘Bennett’ Gallagher, and twenty two year old barista/PA Teague Watters’ story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (Teague and Mateo) TALK BRITISH TO ME follow the forbidden relationship between barista/PA Teague Watters, and radio talk show host Mateo Gallagher. Mateo is the ‘Dating Guy’ and does a weekly radio show talking about his dating experiences but a stipulation in his contract states that he must remain single. Enter Teague Watters-the woman who has caught Mateo’s eye-and a woman who is off limits in more ways than one. What ensues is the building relationship between Teague and Mateo, as Teague battles to keep her job as the new PA to one of L.A.’s most prolific and notorious wedding planners; and Mateo struggles to keep his personal and professional life separate. As part of the job Mateo is expected to serial date-a new flavor of the week every weekend, but our hero never expected to fall in love- a complication that could affect his job and his on air personality. Not only was Teague not one of Mateo’s weekly dates but our heroine never knew the professional side of the man with whom she was falling in love, and in this Mateo’s secret life begins to take its’ toll on our story line heroine. Teague Watters battles between her head and her heart knowing that to get involved with Mateo Gallagher would mean risking her job and reputation. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Teague’s extended family, her best friend Harper, Teague’s roommates Elliot and Levi. We are also introduced to several wedding and bridal clients –some of whom are very close to the Gallagher family. There is some definite history between Harper and Levi-history that has yet to be revealed or explored. The world building focuses on the relationship between Teague and Mateo from friends to friends with benefits, to lovers and so much more; Teague’s struggle with her attraction to a man who has been declared off limits; and Mateo’s battle to keep secret the on-air personality of the Dating Guy. With the introduction of family and friends, there is plenty of opportunity to continue the Wherever You Go series. TALK BRITISH TO ME is a sweet, sexy, and passionate story about two people with different plans for the future. The premise is entertaining with a little bit of humor, fun, drama and romance. The characters are intelligent, colorful, dynamic and charismatic; the romance is seductive; the $ex scenes are limited without the use of sexually graphic, over the top language and text. TALK BRITISH TO ME is a lighthearted, heartwarming and energetic tale that will captivate your heart with its’ delightful story.

TOTALLY FELL LOVE WITH THE BOOK AND THE CHARACTERS!!!! 5 Stars isn’t anywhere enough stars for this romantic comedy. Talk British to Me ranks as one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS!

That is part of her appeal to both Mateo’s mother and Mateo himself. She finds him irresistible yet she doesn’t fawn all over him like other girls do. She sees him for just who he is…flaws and all. “No one has ever looked at me the way she does, with honest-to-goodness, genuine consideration and interest. Like she doesn’t give a s$$$ what everyone else knows or sees. She wants to know the real me.” ~Mateo Speaking of Mateo, he might have a huge ego, but underneath it all, he really is a sweet guy. I discovered he isn’t single because he wants to perpetually be a bachelor. He was hurt deeply by his ex’ just like Teague was. So, the two are helping each other heal. I loved seeing him fall for her. “I’m completely taken with this girl. Her kiss. Her body. Her humor, intelligence, and genuine sweetness. She’s the kind of air I want to breathe in every single day.” ~ Mateo This book is as perfect as a book can be! It has it all: romance, spice, friendship, humor, and great characters! I love how the writer hinted that there may be a future book about Harper and possibly Levi! I can’t wait for that one. If you want a book that will leave you weak i

This was a fun story to watch unfold, and a perfect summer read. Teague is a recent college graduate in the very relatable position of wanting independence but not knowing exactly what to do with the rest of her life. Through chance meetings and the encouragement of her best friend to step out of her comfort zone, Teague ends up with both a more exciting job as assistant to a wedding planner, and with a new crush/friend in Mateo. I loved seeing their friendship/flirtation develop from both their points of view. Both of them were trying to resist because they each thought they wanted an outcome the other was totally opposed to. There were a lot of sweet moments in the book and interesting dates.

It needs to be said that Robin Bielman can write anything she sets her mind to. Talk British to Me is her first foray into the New Adult Romance genre and is the first book in her Wherever You Go series from Entangled Embrace. It’s classic Robin with a cocky, dirty talker thrown in. Yes, take a moment to sigh. Talk British to Me features Teague Watters, who many readers met when her siblings all found love in Robin’s Secret Wishes series from Entangled Bliss. Teague has graduated from college and is ready to forge her own path, be her own person, and make her own mistakes. Along with her best friend Harper, whom she met in college moves to Beverly Hills, California ready to live the dream. Teague works as a barista for a coffee house, while taking online courses to be a travel writer. She makes daily trips to an office building to deliver coffee to Gabrielle Gallagher, a highly sought after wedding consultant. When Gabrielle needs a new assistant, she bulldozes Teague into talking the job. While the money may be good, Gabrielle is definitely the boss from Hades. She’s rude, dismissive, and downright mean. But she’s one of the best at doing what she does. Mateo is the voice behind Bennett, the cocky British guy who gives out love advice to millions of LA radio listeners on a weekly basis as The Dating Guy. He loves his job that involves him having to consistently go out and date women. He’s good at reading people and can have any woman he wants. He’s not looking for forever and is upfront with that. If you’re looking for one night, maybe two, he’s your man. But things are about to get a little interesting for Mateo. His world will never be the same. While at a bar celebrating with one of his best friends and roommate, Mateo literally bumps into Teague, who has forever written all over her, and walks away with a shirt covered in hot wings sauce. In that one encounter, Mateo knows he has to know more about her. As fate would have it, they keep running into each other. But things definitely hit a rocky patch when they realize that Teague works for his mother. Oops. But have no fear, Mateo is not about to let that stop him for being with Teague. “Baby, there is nothing I’m not good at.” Hmmm. I don’t think there is. There are definitely sparks between these two and while Mateo knows that Teague needs to be with a guy who can promise her forever, he can’t seem to let her go. “When you’re ready to touch my lips, Knox, let me know, and I promise I’ll touch yours back.” Oh sigh. He did and then some. Talk British to Me was a good read. This story had a few surprises to it. I loved the friendship that blossomed between Teague and Mateo as well as the secondary characters. Let’s just say, there are a couple who seem to have some unfinished business between them. Robin Bielman has this amazing ability to write characters that you just want to know and have be apart of your life, too bad they aren’t real. Not only does Robin write the most amazingly sweet heroes, but Mateo is a dirty talker!!!! Be still my heart. The only draw back is that he’s just a little too cocky for my tastes, but he does mellow out in the end. I mentioned some characters having some unfinished business, I seriously can’t wait for the next book. **Received a copy from Entangled Publishing and reviewed voluntarily.

Let me wipe the drool off my chin. Loving this cover, but once you open the cover I was not able to put down the story of Mateo and Teague. Mateo is so drool worthy, but he does not do relationships, at least that is what his contract says until he meets Teague. Teague is all about relationships but this is her boss's son. Loved the dialogue between them, so many laugh out moments. Swoon worthy romance. I highly recommend this book. I'm hoping we get to read more about Harper, hint hint.

I LOVED the Secret Wishes series and the Watters crew so I was beyond excited to read Teague's story! Mateo is very popular with the ladies, both as himself and his alter-ego Bennett- The Dating Guy. Mateo is loving his job but while out one night, he runs into a woman, literally, and can't take his eyes off of her. Except Teague wants nothing to do with him. It seems like fate is working its magic with these two when Teague starts working for his mother. There's amazing chemistry between Mateo and Teague but she doesn't want to risk her job and he's contractually obligated to be single. I loved the interactions between Mateo and Teague. The friendship that they built was an amazing foundation for what they developed. This book was a fantastic check in with the Watters family and introduction to a whole new group of characters. I can't wait to get to know this group of friends! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*

I adore this author, and I’ve read everything she’s ever written, but after this one I gotta say if you think you know Robin Bielman, think again. She’s upped her game to a whole ‘nother level with Talk British to Me! Hold on to your e-reader and prepare for a fun, sexy, bloody brilliant ride. Mateo and Teague’s story sizzles with the thrills and angst of figuring out careers, friendship and love, Millennial-style. It’s complicated, right? But underneath the wild shenanigans, crazy bosses, and hot hook-ups, there’s a boy-meets-girl story as classic as the Union Jack. Ah, Mateo. Cocky as hell, and charming as sin. You won’t be able to resist him. Here’s a glimpse as to why: “I’m not kissing you.” “And you want to. You’re bummed you missed your chance.” “I’ve done the British thing a couple of times in bars, and the result is women want to worship me. On their knees in the nearest private spot. It’s a burden I have to live with.” And Teague gives it right back, in laugh-out-loud doses. She’s adorkable, and she knows it. I hated to reach ‘The End,’ but the cast of secondary characters like Harper, Levi and Elliott give me hope there’s more sexy fun to come!

4.25 "If a voice could be a superpower, his would be it." Stars It's no secret I'm a worshipper at the church of Robin Bielman and, if you've never had the pleasure—which trust me her writing is—then now is the time to put that right. "I give the single guy’s perspective on dating, love, and s€x to millions of radio listeners. And no one knows what I look like." Flirty and charming, Mateo Gallagher is a huge hit with the ladies both as himself and his alter ego, radio presenter, Bennett. I'll be honest, it took me a little time for him to win me over, largely down to his cocky, self-confident ego which was perhaps exacerbated by the fact that Talk British to Me is written in the first person, from a his-and-her perspective. But win me over he eventually did. Teague on the other hand, was quite the opposite. "I can’t believe any girl would want to kiss you with all the bull cr4p that comes out of your mouth." Quietly confident and smart with a sweeter yet no-mess nature, Teague isn't quite as quick to fall for Mateo's charms as he'd hope, and I flat out loved her. And, as they get to know one another, everything starts to click into place with you just knowing Robin is going to do what she does best: create relatable, memorable characters with a fantastic chemistry, bring the giggles, swoons and make you feel everything from frustration to those flutters brought on by a first kiss. Or in this case roving hands and a way with words. "She’s my sugar rush. The sweet, insanely good thing I want to keep tasting, but I know will be bad for me in the long run. I’ll be bad for her, too." Yes this is a slower burn romance but, in terms of NA, it's a breath of fresh air being light, low on the drama and angst, and giving you the chance to really get to know Mateo and Teague, whilst at the same time creating sexual tension and anticipation which is worth the wait. And when you add in their fabulous friends and, for those who've read the Secret Wishes series, the return of a few familiar and loved faces, Talk British to Me is a promising start to the Wherever You Go series leaving plenty of scope for more. I'll just be sat over here, impatiently waiting.
