This story follows town sweetheart (and doormat) Emmaline Amos in her continued quest for independence. Em has been through so much (as we discovered in the previous book) that she doesn't quite believe in love anymore. Determined to maintain her independence and provide for her boys, Em takes her duties as GM at Call Girls, Inc. seriously. When she sees Jax at a town picnic (see previous book), the looks that they share are hot enough to set a room on fire. Em doesn't want to be tied down and lose any ground on her newfound independence, and she doesn't believe that a hottie like Jax would be interested in a humiliated, single mother like her.

New to town, single dad Jax is working through heartache of his own. When the opportunity arises to take ownership of his Aunt Jessalyn's home in Plum Orchard arises, he takes it. He's also been offered a job to write a security program for his buddy Caine. The chance to give his daughter Maisy the stability that a small town provides is incentive enough.

Eventually, Jax and Em formally meet. After all, they both are working for the same company. In spite of Em's attempts to avoid the super hottie, their worlds collide. It is hot, sweet, sexy, and magical. Will these two be able to get past the baggage they carry from previous relationships?

I was so happy to read Em's story! She's treated horribly by the Mags AND every person that she thought she could depend on. Without the strength of Dixie's friendship, I don't think that Em would be able to deal with everything that's been thrown her way. She's kind, loving, strong, and (newly) independent. There is so much sadness in this story that the humor and snark of a Dakota Cassidy book is needed. Em has really transformed and it's incredibly inspiring.

There is no denying the fact that I’m a super fan of this author, in fact I’ve even converter my mother to her dark and hilarious offerings so to say I expect a lot from one of her books is no exaggeration. This was definitely a different installment to the Plum Orchard series as there was more laughter than tears for me, but still plenty of emotion. And oh boy, plenty of hot and steamy sex. I really liked Emmeline in the previous book and was so excited she was going to star in the next book and here story was definitely not what I was expecting. Thank you Dakota Cassidy for the pleasant surprise and the many zingers that had me spewing my drink. You’d think I’d know better by now than to attempt drinking anything while reading one of your hilarious stories. Emmeline, is the type of good-girl sexy I’ve always wanted to be and Jax (and his brothers) is the type of man I’ve always dreamt about an honest to goodness nice guy with an extra helping of sexiness. I loved that they are both a little wounded and have something they must overcome, because we all have pasts that often affect us. The bottom line is that this was another entertaining visit to Plum Orchard and I cannot wait to take my next trip.

Emmaline Amos is going through changes. She wants to break free from her ex-husband's assertions that she's dull and prissy. Now that she's General Manager of Call Girls, (a quite respectable phone-sex business, bless her heart!) it seems that the changes she wants to make are going to come easier. After all, who can be prissy with all that pretend spanking and heavy breathing going on; especially after having several drinks during a girls-night-out!? Em decides she can be as saucy as the best of them and picks up the phone to prove it. But instead of a lonely man on the other end, it's a sweet little girl – with a really angry father.

Jax Hawthorn has his dander up over his daughter getting through Call Girls' phone screening and actually ending up on the phone with a phone sex operator. Em has to set him straight about his daughter trying to help him by calling the “girlfriend store.” Jax graciously acknowledges her criticism and has to admit, if he was looking for someone, Em would be on his shopping list. But past hurts have made him much more careful, and he's not buying.

Em wants to break free from the labels others have stuck to her. And Jax is just the person she'd like to peel them off. A blurted proposition to have a friends-with-benefits affair (secretly-of course) gets Em what she wants. No relationship, no risk, right? It may not be that easy...

“You heard me. I want to talk dirty. Bring it on.”

Something to Talk About is the second full-length story in Dakota Cassidy's Plum Orchard contemporary romance series. It is preceded by a novella, Talk This Way, and the first book, Talk Dirty to Me. The main character Emmaline, is a pivotal character in Talk Dirty to Me, and the reader gets to know some very important things about her in that story.

Something To Talk About is the second (or third if you count the prequel) installment to the new Plum Orchard series by Dakota Cassidy. The main character Emmaline Amos is introduced in the previous book, Talk Dirty To Me.

I was very excited to find out it was her story, I really dug her in Talk Dirty To Me, and she stole all the scenes she was in. We learn that Em used to be (and usually still is) a pushover, who was more concerned with not making a scene than standing up for herself and those she loved. I think the combination of her divorce and the cause behind it, and the dread of having to interact and be cordial to former mean girl Dixie was the catalyst for Em's change in attitude. Something To Talk About picks up right in the middle of Em's change.

Though I was very excited to read Em's story, I must admit I was a bit disappointed. I think Em makes a better secondary character than main character. I wasn't fond of her internal monologues - very wishy washy in nature and I think her thoughts made me like her a little less. As a secondary character we're not privy to those thoughts so we only get the dialogue from her and we can create our own inner monologues. I guess I had created her a little differently in my mind.

I still enjoyed the story as a whole. A lot more explicit sex than the other stories, which also took me by surprise seeing as this was uptight Em, but the scenes were hot, and they do vary from tame to sizzling. I will give you guys a heads up, the story is slow at first. The first 40 pages or so I had a hard time getting into; a lot of things getting set up for the real story. But trust me, things get interesting after that. And can I just tease and say there's a BIG secret that gets revealed in this story.
