Sexy is as sexy does. And in Plum Orchard, sugar, it does!
Emmeline Amos is sick of her ex saying she's boring and prissy. After all, she works for a phone-sex company! (As general manager, but still.) On a rare girls' night out, fueled by blender drinks and bravado, Em accepts a shocking dare—to handle a call herself. But it's tipsy Em who gets an earful from an irate single father on the other end of the line. Awkward.
But not as awkward as discovering that same mad dad is Call Girls' gorgeous new programmer. Jax Hawthorne is still upset that his daughter called the "girlfriend store" on his behalf, but he can't deny he'd choose a hot-librarian type like Em if he were looking for love. Which he's not.
Em wants to do more than just talk the talk. So she makes a bawdy bargain with Jax. They've both been burned before—this time, they'll keep it strictly physical. Except as soon as they settle on no strings attached, things start to get tangled.

First Thought when Finished: Plum Orchard reminds me a lot of the small little town I grew up in! Something to Talk About by Dakota Cassidy sure did make me smile! Emmeline is totally a gal after my heart: deep down she knows she is a little bit more than the sensible gal everyone sees. She was the reason this story shined. So grab a drink, settle in, and have a little fun with the peeps of Plum Orchard.

Scarlet is a good fit for this series. I think her southern is a little over the top but it adds to the fun tone of the series. If you are sensitive to southern accents then you should probably read this.
Fun Friday Reads Review
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
